ASOS Made in Kenya Wrap Dress, $72
You need something effortless when the temperature is rising, and this wrap dress is it. Wear it by itself, wear a t-shirt underneath, wear it with your Adidas, or dress it up with some high heel clogs. This is your Everything Dress.
What to Eat Pad, $7
I guess this is dorky, but I LOVE planning out what I’m eating for the week (I rarely follow my plan, but it’s the intention that counts). This magnetic pad that you can slap on your fridge will help you map out this week’s dinner, lunch, and breakfast. And trust me, it’s sooo satisfying.
Luke’s No-Nonsense Special Coffee, $7.99
HG Entertainment Editor was sent a bunch of boxes of Gilmore Girls-themed coffee back when the reboot aired, and I got to snag a couple bags. Luke’s No-Nonsense Special is smooth and delicious — and I get to pretend this is what Lorelai drank every time she came into Luke’s Diner and turned his heart into mush.
Matt & Nat Faux Leather Backpack, $180
Maybe your shoulder is aching, or maybe you just want to take a break from your tote/bucket bag/cross-body/satchel. This (faux!) leather backpack will still make you feel like a fancy lady, and it’s, how your parents would point out, practical.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel, $88 for pack of 30
This is, hands down, the fastest way to take my skin from dull to damn. When it comes to a gentle at-home daily peel, it just doesn’t get better than these ones from Dr. Dennis Gross. I’m hooked! And yes, while these ‘aint cheap, think of it this way: it’s way less expensive than a trip to a fancy facialist.
Kusmi Tea Freezy Rose Iced Tea, $18.90
I am a huge rose tea lover. But temperatures are climbing, so I don’t always feel like a piping hot mug of tea on a humid night. That’s why I’m obsessed with Kusmi’s “Freezy Rose,” a rose green tea that is meant to be served on ice.
Fishs Eddy x Adam J. Kurtz Frowny Sun Juice Glass, $7
These Adam J. Kurtz x Fishs Eddy juice glasses are making me want to drink some juice. Like, right now. I need juice!
