Check back every day for new picks and deals!
L’Homme Prada Intense and La Femme Prada Intense, starting at $86
L’Homme Prada Intense may have “l’homme” in the title, but with notes of amber and patchouli, this scent is designed to “play on the concept of gender fluidity,” according to the press release. Meaning les femmes and les hommes alike can appreciate this unisex fragrance. There’s also La Femme Prada Intense, which has notes of ylang-ylang, tuberose and orange blossom. Get either of these prestige scents as a gift for your fancy friends—or gift it to your fancy self, because you deserve it.
Fig + Yarrow Pink Love Candle, $48
My favorite Monday evening ritual is lighting a candle and slipping into a warm bath with a cold glass of rosé at the ready. I’m a huge fan of Fig + Yarrow’s pink love bath salts, and so naturally their pink love candle is equally luxurious. And while this makes a perfect hostess gift, I’d highly recommend getting one for yourself, too.
Colette x Esteban Cortazar Tote Bag, $17.71
Colette, the ultra-cool kid Parisian concept store, is sadly shuttering in December. So I plan on stocking up on some of their best collabs while I can. This is the perfect go-everywhere tote from fashion designer Esteban Cortazar.
Elf Cosmetics Natural Glow Lotion, $8
Elf’s glow lotion is like a tinted moisturizer without the tint. It hydrates your skin and magically evens it out and makes you look like you got enough sleep. I’ve been using the rose hue (it doesn’t actually turn your face pink), and it gives my face a healthy glow.
“It’s All Easy: Delicious Weekday Recipes for the Super-Busy Home Cook” by Gwyneth Paltrow, $21.08
Little known fact about me: I collect Gwyneth Paltrow cookbooks! Just having them in my possession makes me feel healthier! Her latest (it came out in 2016), It’s All Easy, is slightly less intense than It’s All Good but still healthy and aspirational. It also includes three recipes for avocado toast and milk shakes made with coconut ice cream. Luv you, Gwyn.
Gap Floral Midi Wrap Dress, $56 (was $80)
The perfect floral ’90s dress for your late summer wardrobe. On sale!
