ghd Platinum Pink Blush Styler, $249


I never thought I could love a beauty tool the way I love my ghd Platinum Pink Blush Styler. This is the Cadillac of hair straighteners. Or the Beyoncé of hair tools, if you will. Basically, it’s the crème de la crème. I’ve used the same hair straightener for almost 8 years, and I was in dire need of a fancy upgrade. And when it comes to flat irons, it doesn’t get classier than this baby right here. This styler can be used to create curls and waves, too, but I am partial to using it for ultra-sleek, shiny straight hair with a bit of movement for extra visual interest. I love my Platinum Pink Blush Styler so much I want to build a special display case for it, like you would a trophy. It’s that damn good.

RYE Razzle Bikini, $209


It may technically be the end of summer, but I’m still fully in the market for a bikini, because I live in L.A. and it is hellishly hot right now. September is notoriously one of the hottest months here, so I plan on getting plenty of mileage out of this darling suit for swimwear label Rye.

Goldie Classic Tee, $65


One thing I don’t have a lot of is high-quality staple T-shirts. I buy a lot of novelty dresses in prints and bright colors, and sometimes I forget the power of a plain tee. It’s one of those things that completes your entire wardrobe. I really need to stock up, and I plan on starting with these softer-than-soft luxury tees from Goldie.

Brika Happiness Gift Box, $60


I love to browse the online shop Brika for out-of-the-ordinary gift ideas. I came across this “Happiness Box” the other day, and I love the whole concept. It makes a perfect cheer-up gift for a friend — or yourself if you’ve just been having a DAY.

Wrigley’s 4-Pack Winterfresh Gum, $2.38


If you want to make me nostalgic, hand me a stick of Winterfresh gum. I always had a fresh pack on me all throughout high school. And so now I whenever I open up the wrapper and get a whiff of that sweet, minty scent it launches me straight back to 11th grade.
