I know Wal-Mart is terrible, but I will never stop buying their candles. They have amazing flavours and they're $3.33 each ($4 Canadian). They also last a decent amount of time and they smell incredible. No one should ever spend more than $10 a candle - and if you already do spend more than that on candles, then you're making too much money.
AND IT'S AMAZING. And somehow inexpensive, too.
The "gymwear" section, the offerings include leggings, tanks, shorts, sports bras and beyond, with a few simply cut swimsuits and bodysuits thrown in alongside other gym kit staples like sneakers and socks. The pieces are sleekly cut, done in neutral hues, and crazy affordable with most tops and leggings between $20 and $30; sweatshirts are around $40. And every piece I've tried on (and bought) feels so ridiculously soft, IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. Go see for yourself.
I was prepared to make fun of this Primer Water spray from Smashbox that I got for free from Sephora, but uhhh... IT’S REFRESHING AS HELL.
What does it actually do? No idea. It apparently is supposed to “wake up skin and restore moisture—like a supercharged energy drink for your skin.” Is it worth $32 for a full sized bottle? Probably not. But the sample size that’s free sometimes at Sephora? GET IT.
I have owned two pairs of these Costco leggings for the past three years and they are worn out as shit. Why? I have worn them, almost exclusively, throughout the months of December, January, February and March - almost every single day of those months (if that sounds like a gross statement to you, maybe I'm exaggerating... and if that isn't a gross statement to you, I'm definitely not exaggerating). So I think it's perfectly acceptable that they're a little tattered at this point. (But fret not, new ones are the way, thank you, Marla!)
I received them as a gift (from Harmeet) and at first thought to myself, "Why the hell would I wear these bland-ass-looking, thick leggings? I have a million leggings that are way nicer and more colourful. What is she thinking giving these to me?" And then I tried them on one cold night and they blew my face off they were so comfortable and flattering. I swear to you, if you give these a shot, you will not be disappointed.
Also: don't judge people who buy clothes at Costco, it's rude.
This toy company makes custom plush-toy replicas of pets from photos sent in by their clients. Ummm, this is one of the greatest ideas I've heard in awhile. The only downside is the price - I'm not sure why they're $249 per pet, but I'm assuming that a lot of work goes into each one.
If you know someone who's overly into Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (who isn't?), this is probably the best gift you could give them. I got them for Nathan a few years ago and they make a yearly appearance now on our Christmas tree. I'm pretty sure there are a few places online you can buy them, but the easiest would probably be on Amazon for $20 for the the pair.
We just got these small stick-on lights to put in the darker spots of our kitchen - and whoa. They make all the difference in the world. It's insane. We should've gotten them MONTHS ago.
If you're got any areas that need a little more light (ie. closets, spice cabinets, etc.), these are so, so perfect for any small space.
Designer Tom Medwin has created what he calls the "Best Morning Ever Mug," which has been designed to keep your coffee or tea warmer for a longer amount of time after you pour it, as well as provide a surface that acts as a doughnut warmer. $15 gets you one if they reach their Kickstarter goal (which they totally have already).
