Albany Park: Park Armchair ($795)
“I’ve had this armchair for months at this point, and I’m still absolutely obsessed with it. I find myself dozing off for summertime afternoon naps in it constantly (it’s that comfy), and as I’ve gotten an itch to rearrange my place and refresh some of my decor, this chair has become one of the primary pieces I’m designing around. If you’re looking for affordable, quick-to-ship, and insanely easy-to-assemble furniture, I definitely recommend Albany Park.” –Hallie
“Growing up in the finger lakes region of NY, where fresh water was abundant, I never had to think twice about the water quality of my showers. A few years ago when I moved to Southern California, I started to struggle with super dry skin and damaged hair. I tried so many moisturizers and serums but it was like putting on a band-aid. As soon as I ran out of product (or prescriptions!), my hair and skin would go back to being a problem. I never thought a shower head would be the answer – but I was wrong!. I noticed less scalp build up, smoother skin, and my eczema disappeared after just weeks of using the Jolie Showerhead Filter. I don’t even want to think about the water I was showering in before. Bonus: it's chic and easy to install!” –Hannah
Aprico: Hydrate + Replenish Sachets ($47.99)
“I’m a hydration fiend. You most likely won’t catch me without my 48oz Nalgene – and if you do, I’m probably complaining loudly about it. Although I’m constantly drinking water, there are times when my body needs to hydrate quickly, efficiently, and without the post-chug bloat. Enter Aprico’s Hydrate + Replenish Sachets. Each sachet contains a 100% pure phytoplankton seawater mineral solution, and holds up to 78 essential minerals that are vital for a quick recovery. Having these packets handy has been a savior: pre and post-workout, in the throes of a deadly hangover, or just in the middle of running errands in the mid-July NYC heat. The ingredients are pure and simple, which is to say that it does indeed taste like you’re taking a shot of seawater, but it’s a quick and painless price to pay to help your body fend off dehydration and muscle fatigue. Bottoms up!” –Jordan
prAna: Sancho Pant (on sale, $44.50)
“I'm sort of over skinny jeans, and these straight leg pants are my new go-to. They're cotton, so a good summer fabric, and have a nice cropped fit that's perfect for me at 5"1!” –Kaleigh
“I’m obsessed with body care. Between spending days at the beach and running around the city, making sure my arms and legs are smooth, moisturized and glowing has been a huge priority for me. One of my friends sent me Chelle to try and I was blown away by how much of an immediate difference I saw. The kit comes with an exfoliator stone and mitt – you rub the stone against the mitt so some of the exfoliating polish comes off and then scrub your arms and legs. I could not believe how smooth it made my skin – this product is better than any sugar scrub or dry brush I’ve previously tried. Highly recommend!” –Lillie
“With a new baby in the family, my toddler niece has struggled with no longer being the center of attention; helping out makes her feel just as involved as during her days as an only child. When she had to relinquish her usual high chair perch in the kitchen for the baby's use, I tracked down this Mini Chef Foldable Helper Tower from Piccalio. Crafted from premium birchwood, this Montessori-inspired tower has a safety rack so she won't fall backwards while standing AND it folds down to save space – a major help in a house now accommodating double the kids' stuff. Adjustable height means it'll grow with her, and she's completely in love with it. Bonus points for the wooden Mini Cutter, perfect for ‘helping Mommy and Daddy cook.’” –Grace
“Forever on the hunt for healthy family snacks – with more protein, limited sugar and less food additives (xantham gum is now my enemy as I learned it drives gut inflammation) – I was thrilled to find UniTe Protein Bars. While my boys enjoy the unique flavors, from Churro and PB and Jelly to Mexican Hot Chocolate, I relish in the brand's bounty of natural ingredients: almond butter, whey protein, dates, hemp hearts, chicory root fiber, sunflower oil and more.” –Christine
“For the past few months, I have been struggling with feeling rested after a good night's sleep. I've tried new sheets, new pillows, lowering my caffeine intake, and no phones before bed, but I still wake up groggy with tired eyes—the worst. After falling in love with Clevr's Matcha SuperLatte (yes, I am a matcha girlie now), I decided to try the Sleeptime SuperLatte. I've recognized an undeniable difference in my sleep on the nights that I drink this versus the nights that I don't. It's been a total game changer – and it's like drinking hot chocolate before bed! If you're struggling with feeling rested after 8 hours of sleep, I highly recommend trying this blend!” –Kristen
Mr Black: Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur ($39.99)
“We all know the Espresso Martini is having a moment – but any bartender worth their salt is leaving the Kahlua on the shelf and using Mr Black instead. A premium coffee liqueur brand founded in Australia, Mr Black has completely taken the cocktail world by storm, and continues to release inventive takes on its flagship product. This month saw the launch of Rum Barrel and Mezcal Cask Aged variations, and I've spent all summer sipping the brand’s Coffee Amaro over ice as well. Take it from someone who doesn't even drink coffee: you want this on your bar cart.” –Ryan
