Muk Luks Women's Amira Short Slipper Bootie

gray short slipper bootie


"Now that it's getting colder, I've been spending approximately 90% of my time in slippers. I have a few pairs, but this bootie-style is my absolute favorite. The inside is a super soft fleece and the sturdy bottoms are soft enough that they don't make noise when I'm walking around. " — Bridget Mallon, associate editorial director

The Blueland x Reformation Routine Clean Kit

Blueland x Reformation

"I love Blueland's mission of cutting down on single use plastic in the cleaning space by offering refillable products. Their collaboration with Reformation is particularly noteworthy, thanks to the chic, understated vessels. The hand soap in particular smells incredible—woodsy, earthy, and dare I say, sexy—I'm already planning to order refills." — Bridget Mallon, associate editorial director

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash

Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Wash


"I received this hand wash as a gift last month, and I'm already obsessed. In a year when hand washing has never been more important, this luxurious soap makes a mundane task feel like a mini vacation. The scent is earthy but not overpowering, and lingers in my bathroom, making it smell like, I would imagine, a really lovely spa." — Caroline Utz, associate editor

Vitruvi Stone Diffuser in Terracotta

"For my birthday last month, this Vitruvi diffuser was high on my wish list. I've used it every day since I've gotten it and could not recommend it more. It has two settings: one that will release scent constantly for about four hours, and the other will diffuse intermittently for eight. I've been using the second setting during the work day, with hints of grapefruit and spruce perking me up through long meetings or workloads. My favorite part has to be how well this blends into my decor — it just looks like a lovely, textured vase on my windowsill." — Caroline Utz, associate editor

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Color Corrector

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Magic Vanish! Color Corrector

Charlotte Tilbury

"I wear full makeup a lot less frequently these days due to the pandemic, but a fantastic coverup can make me feel instantly put together. I dab this under my eyes and along the bridge of my nose to feel ready for the work day without looking too done up. I actually bought it after Byrdie's Lindsey Metrus sang its praises during an Instagram Story feature. Thanks Lindsey!" — Mélanie Berliet, general manager

Society6 Throw Pillows

Moonlight Print, Society 6

"My IKEA sofa has seen better days: the cushions are sagging, the fabric is fading, and it just isn’t as comfortable as it once was. In an attempt to extend the couch’s life, I invested in a pile of throw pillows from Society6. I had purchased several outdoor throw pillows from the brand this summer and was impressed by the quality for the price point, so I figured I’d give their indoor options a shot. I love that the covers are removable so they can be washed regularly (a must for my dog-friendly household), and that there are thousands of unique designs to choose from, each created by an independent artist. In the end I chose four geometric patterns from Moonlight Print’s shop. They give my couch a much needed pop of color and are fairly durable—Kaylee, my ten-year-old terrier mix, frequently claims them for her own bed and they’ve held up nicely." — Allison Bean, editorial director

SodaStream Fizzi Sparkling Water Maker

Soda Stream

"My husband and I are massive sparkling water and fizzy drink fans, but we couldn't stand the amount of cans in our recycling bin that we'd have to haul outside at the end of every week. The Sodastream was at the top of my mind as a solution, and we're so happy we decided to introduce this machine into our home. We basically have sparkling water on tap which has truly become our heaven." — Kim Carvalho, associate social media editor

Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Perfume Oil

Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Perfume Oil

Maison Louis Marie

"I was on the hunt for the perfect fall scent when I came across Maison Marie Louise No.04 - absolute perfection. I've never worn a scent that stayed on all day and I receive compliments and curious "what perfume are you wearing?" comments everywhere I go. The scent is earthy, woody, and warm, and if you've ever smelled Le Labo Santal 33, this is an amazing (and much less expensive) dupe for it." — Kim Carvalho, associate social media editor

Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler

Simple Modern Classic Insulated Tumbler with Straw and Flip or Clear Lid Stainless Steel Water Bottle Iced Coffee Travel Mug Cup

Simple Modern

"I know it's hard for anyone to justify yet another reusable water bottle, but I promise this one from Simple Modern is worth it. I ordered one after spotting it in a few TikTok product reviews, and now I've been carrying it everywhere I go. It's more affordable than a few of the other popular reusable water bottles I've tried, and it keeps my water cold for much longer. It also comes in a ton of aesthetically pleasing color hues—I'm already planning on gifting one to multiple people on my list during the holidays." – Karli Bendlin, email editor

Magnetic Notebook

Uncommon Goods

"This is one of things you don't think you need until you get it, and then you wonder how you ever made it through life without it. This little notebook is great for people like me who sometimes open a notebook to a random page to jot something down quickly and later discover that it's on topic with something else you've written earlier. No need to rewrite, just move the page! Genius!" — Ginger Cowles, senior editor, The Spruce

Love Wellness Bye Bye Bloat

Love Wellness

"Bloat just carries differently after having a baby—you actively look 3 months pregnant once a month. This is the supplement for you if you've tried raspberry leaf tea and dandelion tea when you're in the thick of your menstrual cycle. It truly debloats and it doesn't give you extra tummy troubles!" — Jamie Abarca, editorial projects coordinator

Dermalogica Microfoliant

daily microfoliant

"This product is usually in my winter skin arsenal but it's currently my maskne savior! You only need to use this 1-2 times a week to see and feel a difference in your skin. Also, the bottle lasts a very long time!" — Jamie Abarca, editorial projects coordinator

Pop Chart Lab The Horticultural Chart of Houseplants

The Horticultural Chart of Houseplants

Pop Chart Lab

"Like everyone who has been working from home for the last 6 months, I've taken a good, hard look at my apartment's decor and found it....less than inspiring. And while I absolutely love plants, I have whatever the opposite of a green thumb is, so I will never live out my true plant mom dreams. So, I bought this print (and upgraded to a framed option), which adds that little bit of liveliness and color to my space, but won't fade if I overwater it." — Kate Geraghty, commerce editor

Rare Beauty Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation

Rare Beauty By Selena Gomez Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation

Rare Beauty By Selena Gomez

"When Selena Gomez's new beauty line launched, I heard a ton of positive buzz, both from beauty experts and my own friends, so I decided to give it a try. Since the line is super affordable, I went a little overboard with my haul and was pretty impressed with everything I got—this foundation most of all. My cheeks and chin have some redness and uneven tone, and even though the formula is very lightweight, I was able to build up so that my skin looked smooth and natural—which is just what I want when I'm about to hop on a Zoom call or a FaceTime happy hour." — Kate Geraghty, commerce editor

Dr. Teal's Soothe & Sleep Lavender Foaming Bath

Dr Teal's Pure Epsom Salt Soothe & Sleep Lavender Foaming Bath - 34 fl oz

Dr Teal's

"In my never-ending quest to get a good night's sleep during the pandemic, I bought this lavender-scented bubble bath. I'm not sure if it actually helps me sleep, but having a hot, fragrant bath on the weekend or after a long day of work has been one of my favorite ways to de-stress. I love this because the scent is not overwhelmingly perfume-y but just aromatic enough." — Kate McKenna, email editor, The Spruce

Camille Long Stem Champagne Coupe Glass

Crate & Barrel Camille Long Stem Champagne Coupe Glass

Crate & Barrel

"I miss getting fun cocktails at restaurants. My sister (who is also my roommate) and I decided to give ourselves a treat this month with some new coupes to cheer us up. Her favorite cocktail is a martini, and my favorite thing to sip on is Prosecco, so it's the ideal classy drinking vessel for us. Now we can pretend to be at our favorite bar rather than on our couch." — Emma Glubiak, social media editor, The Spruce

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate


"We're coming up on winter which usually means my skin gets super dry. I've never tried face oil before, but after buying this product I can say with certainty that I am a face oil convert. My face felt smoother and softer after just a few uses and it smells like lavender, which is a huge bonus." — Emma Glubiak, social media editor, The Spruce

Book of the Month Subscription

Book of the Month Subscription

Book of the Month

"I’ve always been an avid reader. In elementary school, I would blow through books in a day or two and beg my mom to take me to Borders to buy more. Since entering adulthood, I haven’t read quite as much as I used to, but my BOTM subscription ensures I have access to the year’s best books through their curated lists I can choose from each month. This past month, I read two of my favorite books of the year thanks to BOTM, The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett and Anxious People by Fredrik Backman." — Mia Ingui, editorial assistant

My Sheets Rock "The Regulator" Sheet Set

My Sheets Rock

"I didn't think I was picky about bedding, but I tried sheets and pillowcases by My Sheets Rock this month, and now I'm officially ruined. They're soft, breathable and make my bed just dreamy." — Jamie Weissman, associate commerce editor
