CB2 Pop Art Rainbow Wall Mirror, $299
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the one most likely to get a mirror in the shape of a rainbow? Me! Looking at a mirror can be traumatizing sometimes (hellooooo, low self-esteem!) but I think I’ll be a lot happier looking into this one.
Banana Republic Flutter-Sleeve Lace Dress, $49
Any time Banana Republic has a huge sale (I’m talking items 50% off here), I feel like I’m getting away with something. This red dress has the perfect flutter sleeves, a schoolgirl button-up, and it isn’t super form-fitting, which I love. It also has, wait for it, pockets!
Fenty Beauty Eclipse 2-in-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner, $20
We here at HG have been testing out all of Rihanna’s Fenty beauty products, and our most recent crush is this 2-in-1 magical liquid eyeliner, which goes on metallic but, once you smudge it out, turns full glitter. Leave it to Rihanna to make something so magical.
Ellis Brooklyn Pseudonym Candle, $60
As soon as I walk into my apartment, I throw my big-ass tote bag down and light the wick on my Ellis Brooklyn “Pseudonym” candle. When a candle is inspired by a D.H. Lawrence poem, ya know it’s gotta be good. This fig-scented candle pays homage to Lawrence’s poem “Figs,” so naturally it begins with a fresh, bright fig note and blossoms into a robust blend of jasmine, pepper, and sandalwood. Ellis Brooklyn is one of the best beauty brands I’ve ever come across that fuses eco-friendliness with luxury. Not only does it smell divine, but the recycled glass container makes a gorgeous accent piece. This candle is alluring and mysterious in a way that makes me want to assume a pseudonym. Just call me “Hester Millington.”
Vitamix Explorian Series E310, $349.95
I’ve been pining after a Vitamix for years now, and let’s just say this Explorian Series E310 model is giving me emoji heart eyes. Honestly, luxury kitchen appliances get me more excited than cars, and this baby is basically a Maserati in blender form. This Vitamix makes me want to make a healthy smoothie every morning, or pre-make some yummy soups to bring to work instead of spending $16 on a salad. I might even make a nut butter! A nut butter, people! I’m not ashamed to admit that I have literally had dreams about this Vitamix.
Medley Hills Farm Cereal Marshmallows, $11
You know how as a kid you always wanted to have a bowl of marshmallows without the actual cereal? Well, now apparently you can.
