Check back every day for new picks and deals!
S’well Milky Way Bottle, $45
Hear me out before you think to yourself “I am not paying that much money for a water bottle.” I hate drinking water. I hate it so much, and if only water tasted like purple Gatorade would I even consider enjoying consuming H2O. But life doesn’t work that way, and water is tasteless and boring and makes me pee every ten minutes and it’s disruptive to my workflow. HOWEVER, I’ve discovered that investing in a pretty water bottle will make me feel too guilty NOT to drink all the recommended amounts of water. So I got this beautiful “Milky Way” bottle by S’Well, and its hologram-ness tricks me into thinking I’m drinking unicorn juice. The brain works in mysterious ways, my friends.
Clarins Lip Oil in “Raspberry,” $26
Lip oil is like lip gloss but better, because it lasts longer and it really does sooth your lips. Just a swipe of Clarin’s raspberry lip oil lasted me several hours at work AND a sweaty hour at the gym. Plus, it smells like crushed raspberries.
Topshop Oversized Chambray Shirt, $30 (was $60)
Topshop is having a bonkers sale right now, and take advantage of it by stocking up on some late-summer, early fall basics, like this chambray button-up. Light enough to still wear in the summer, but substantial for the office, this top will be your go-to. The short length of the sleeves is also a bonus.
Charlotte Stone Mules, $265
There isn’t a pair of Charlotte Stone shoes that my soul doesn’t desire, but these high-heeled mules snatched my heart and ran away into the night. I love this color—I think I’ll call it “muted safety cone orange.” Or “Cheetos fingers orange.” They call it “terracotta” on the website, but whatevs.
COS Sheer Lace Bra, $39
I bought a bra from COS a while ago, and now I’m kicking myself that I didn’t buy more because they aren’t selling that exact style anymore. But they do have this sheer lace version, which looks so delicate and pretty. COS may not be the first place you think of buying underwear, but I would highly recommend.
Penhaligon’s Savoy Steam Perfume, $175
I’ll put it simply: Penhaligon’s is pure class. If you’re looking for a fancy gift that will knock your friend clean outta her socks, this perfume is it. Inspired by steam baths, “Savoy Steam” is fabulous for summer with its notes of green geranium, rosemary and pink pepper. It’s made for a hot July day, because the scent isn’t overly sweet or cloying —it’s perfectly petal-fresh.
