Maison Louis Marie No. 04 Bois de Balincourt Candle, $34
I was sent this candle, and I couldn’t quite grasp WHAT it smelled like exactly. Flowery but also earthy? Fall, but I could detect some spring? I handed it over to Emily to sniff, and she declared, “This candle smells like a boy I used to know.” So there you have it. This candle smells like a boy (or girl) you used to know.
Zara Bejewelled Collar Sweater, $39.90
I LOVE a good Wednesday Addams collar, and this one is bejeweled, no less. Definitely ordering this from Zara today to add to my fall wardrobe, even though it’s currently 90 degrees in L.A. Weather, you are dead to me.
Fossil Gen 3 Smartwatch, $275
I was at a Fossil launch the other day, and one of the brand’s representatives told me about how Fossil has a smartwatch. I was like, “Oh that’s nice, but I hate how tech-y smartwatches look.” Because I don’t feel like wearing a tiny computer on my wrist (call me old-school), I’ve always worn a regular ol’ watch that just shows me the time. But then she told me that Fossil makes smartwatches that LOOK like watches, and I checked out the collection online. And she’s right — they look like watches AND they’re smart. You can be a traditional gal AND access your email inbox from your wrist.
Mavi High-Rise Jeans, $128
I’m on what feels like a constant hunt for a flattering pair of dark wash, high-rise jeans. Then I came across this fabulous pair from denim brand Mavi, and my heart did that flutter thing that happens on a first date or when the pizza delivery guy rings the doorbell. Finally. A high-quality pair of jeans that will go with every top in my closet. I’d wear these with a cropped sweater and mules to work. Or with an oversized button-down top and white sneakers on the weekend. These skinnies will be a part of my official fall uniform.
Meow Meow Tweet Sweet Orange Papaya Body Scrub, $32
Imagine eating a delicious fruit tart while sitting on a cloud. That’s what using this sweet orange papaya body scrub feels like. First, let’s discuss the scent. It’s like a slice of citrus heaven. I used this in the shower the other night, and all it took was a dollop of this stuff and my skin felt so SOFT and refreshed afterwards. I went to bed with baby soft skin, and lemme tell ya — it felt like pure luxury. Another reason I love Meow Meow Tweet is because their products makes such good gifts, thanks to their genius packaging. Buy one for you and your BFF.
Madewell Pink Flannel Sunday Shirt, $88
I love the big-ness of this shirt. It has that whole “I’m not trying, but I still look damn good” vibe that I love. Plus, it’s millennial pink.
