My Picks

A Bathtub Bonsai

Ease your way into keeping things alive this year with a bathtub Bonsai tree!  Inspired by my recent trip to Longwood Gardens and the spot’s equally magical Instagram account.

Organic Rosehip Oil

 HydraTrak Insulated Rainbow Tumbler

51P0bTj0DtL.jpgDesigned with the intention of coaxing you into drinking more water with the satisfying promise of moving another colorful band, this refillable tumbler looks straight out of the rainbow world of Gray Malin, @graymalin.

Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil

a238069.jpgA surprisingly affordable pick from the skin-care regime of Hilary Rhoda, whose Instagram also offers some major, supermodel-style fitness inspo. It’s an undereye/dry skin lifesaver and perfect alternative for those of us still weird about putting straight-up oil on our face after years of being told by various teen celebrities its basically satanic.

Tassel Earrings

These $10 tassels look fresh out of the Lizzie Fortunato lookbook — for a fraction of the price. Inspired by the brand’s #eargoals Instagram, @lfjewels.

Moscow Mule Mug Set

Highly rated (!!!) Moscow mule set I’m confident even Elliot Clark of @the_apartment_bartender would approve of.

Am I There Yet?: The Loop-de-loop, Zigzagging Journey to Adulthood

Am+I+There+Yet+-+Mari+Andrew+Book.jpg
Fun fact: Mari Andrew once wrote me the sweetest note in the response to an email I sent her outlining my mid-twenties crisis in very specific detail a few questions I had. Personally,  I think the cover alone is enough to afford a pre-order, and make sure to give her Instagram a follow, @bymariandrew, too.

Midi Velvet Wrap Dress

Winter go-to dress? Found. Bonus points for the fact this under $40 find looks straight out of the @weworewhat vault.

Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser

Aromatherapy Oil Diffuser

If an LED essential oil diffuser sounds like the perfect way to get lit this January, you’re in luck. Plus, you can add on quite the collection of oils — which include relaxing lavender and healing tea tree varieties — for just $20 extra! Inspired by @girlsnightinclub, an Instagram/newsletter/community very much here for your unwavering devotion to bed.

Literally Me

Perfect Twenty-Something Gift, Literally Me

I’ve been keeping up with J.Crew-creative-turned-satirical-sketch-artist, Julie Houts, for a while now, and let me tell you, she’s good. So good, in fact, there’s now a real-life book to commemorate her illustrated thoughts on things like control-top tights and three-day hangovers! If you’re interested, you can find her on the ‘gram, @jooleeloren.

Basil Scented Soy Candle

619xv3arhkl-_sy463_-e1513230477396.jpg
Inspired by one of my favorite Southern food blogs, Basil and Bubbly. Oregano, mint, bay leaf, I’ma let you finish, but…

Victoria’s Handmade Lavender Pillow Spray

51qg6azTHDL._SY550_.jpg
I have this, I love this. Inspired by @floretflower, because duh!

Wall Mounted Pot Lid Organizer Rack

Pot Lid Organizer
Can you imagine what we, as a human collective, could have accomplished with all the time spent searching dark cabinets for pot lids? Of course my favorite Instagram chef is an ice cream chef, and I can’t recommend Jeni Britton Bauer‘s inspiring Instagram stories, awesome hair, or new spot in DC enough.

Cerulean Agate Coaster Pack

81o6nodx4nl-_sy450_-e1514923017884.jpg
Perfect for:
anyone with delicate surfaces, open containers, and dignity. Inspired by the beautiful Austrialian interiors found on Fiona Michelon’s Instagram, @fiona_michelon_stylist.

Corkcicle 4-in-1 Chiller, Aerator, Pourer, Stopper

51D92c-XCeL._SL1500_.jpgIf 2018 is also your designated year to start giving a sh*t about wine, this frozen pick provides an easy way to keep vino fresh (and cold!) after a solo night or quick dinner. AND if you happen to be in the market for some wine-inspired knowledge bombs that won’t put you to sleep, the Instagram of Marissa A. Ross provides the perfect pairing.

Passport Cover Case
Passport Cover Case for Under $15

Perfect for hitting up your #WinterGetaway like a True Adult™, of course. My favorite travel ‘gram right now? @the_blonde_adventure, who is currently saving the world in Puerto Rico!

Good Grips Silicone Sink Strainer

Silicone Drain Strainer

For anyone who happily eats five-day old Chinese but cannot bare the thought of touching wet food, you’re welcome. Inspired by new mom and hilarious human Cameron Eubanks, @camwimberly1, of Southern Charm and breast-milk stain fame.
