Take 1: If you've been trying to tone your arms for the last five years…

This five-minute arm-sculpting yoga sequence from Well+Good will actually do the trick. It was created by the founder of CrossFlowX, Heidi Kristoffer, so you know it's good. Grab your yoga mat and get flowing!

Take 2: If you've been putting off your home organization project…

This chic Japanese home brand will make you want to dive right in. Yamazaki specializes in organizational products at an affordable price point, and you can order everything off Amazon. We're obsessed with the leaning ladder rack.

Take 3: If you're over Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, and Happn…

Consider MeetMindful, the only dating app created specifically for mindful, spiritual individuals. The app aims to "legitimize mindfulness beyond meditation apps," and can be used for romantic relationships or friendships. 

Take 4: If you were floored by Balenciaga's $2600 IKEA tote…

This just in: IKEA has (hilariously) responded to the designer lookalike with a clever ad explaining how to identify the original IKEA tote. The defining factor? The fact that it's only 99 cents.

Take 5: If you've been looking to jazz up your kitchen appliances…

Look no further than Dolce & Gabbana's collaboration with Smeg. Each blender, coffee machine, and toaster is adorned with a custom-designed floral, leaf, lemon, pear, and cherry motif that's evocative of the duo's signature style.

Your afternoon pick-me-up:

Thanks to gourmet chocolatier Compartés and the California Avocado Commission, an avocado chocolate bar now exists. The White Chocolate & California Avocado Bar will officially launch on Thursday, April 27, at the L.A. Compartés boutique.
