“I am far too conscientious with skincare to let the sun deplete my efforts. As sunscreen alone is not sufficient given the number of hours I log outdoors, the Anya & Niki Tower Hat, inspired by lifeguards, is exactly what I needed to protect both my skin and my eyes. With a chic but sturdy construction, and leather cord to tie, the hat stays put when soaring through the lake on a boat, or when I *might* tip over while paddle boarding.” -Christine
“Ritual, known mainly for their Vitamin products, recently launched a Protein Powder that is absolutely delicious. I'm a full convert -- from the body builder gross stuff you'd find at GNC to this Vanilla flavored formula with clean, sugar free ingredients. My only gripe -- the bag contains 15 servings, so I run through it faster than the monthly subscription cadence and need to get my hands on more of it!” -Scott
“It seems to be a running theme that I am slow to pick up on fashion trends. Most of my friends have been rocking exercise/workout dresses for years now! (One of my friends even ran a marathon in one back in 2019). But I finally caved and got Girlfriend Collective's Undress in Shadow. It is incredibly flattering and makes me feel so put together, even when I feel quite the opposite. Plus, with the built in shorts, there's really nothing you can't do.” -Rosemary
“I finally found the perfect product to boost my morning routine. Meet Aila, a superfood/matcha blend that is as good for you as it is tasty. I use it as a pre-workout, drop it into my morning smoothie to improve focus, or mix it up with oat milk to replace my lattes! It's such a versatile product & helps me feel ready to conquer the day.” -Kristen
“Not only does this shirt have that distressed look I always fall for, but I love the graphic and its message, too. Who doesn't love a great t-shirt with a great message (that supports a great cause!?) Proceeds will help The By Grace Foundation build a sewing center and tailor-training program in Mabarhule, South Africa.” -Kaleigh
“I'm obsessed with gua sha right now because it's such a good stress reliever. I was really surprised to see how much a facial massage actually improved my sleep. This stainless steel set by Sarah Cheung is self-cooling, antibacterial and soooo luxurious — and only for $80 for the whole set! Plus, it's really refreshing to see an Asian/Pacific Islander woman reclaiming something from her own tradition and family background.” -Leo
“I've long been obsessed with all things olfactory -- there's almost nothing more important to me about my home than the way it smells. Case in point: I've yet to finish furnishing my apartment, but I do have incense or a candle burning in every corner. Right now, I can't stop burning this Ocotillo Bloom incense from Tennen Studio (which is incredibly difficult to find and really only available directly through their site -- I smelled it in a friend's home and immediately needed to purchase it). I am not exaggerating when I say this is the best incense I've ever experienced. Even better? It arrived with a handwritten, vaguely threatening but mostly charming note: ‘HAPPY BURNING.’” -Zoë
