1 / 7

"My 2023 planner has arrived, and it is gorgeous! This time, I went with a daily productivity planner from Papier. There’s space to write to-dos, schedules, and shopping lists, and track your habits, goals, and growth for the year." —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

Urban Outfitters

"This vase from Urban Outfitters is one of the best non-thrifted purchases that I've made, and I recently filled it with flowers while reorganizing my desk. I had a period of time where I was buying female-shaped art, earrings, and of course, this vase, so it's definitely been a staple for my room decor." —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

Jayson Home

"Ever come across an under-the-radar find that’s so good, you’re tempted to keep it to yourself? That’s how I felt about this woven purse discovery from Jayson Home (yes, a home brand), but it’s a shopping 'secret' I absolutely must rave about. Handwoven in Ghana, the small-batch style provides employment opportunities for local women. Size-wise, it's big enough fit my 13.3 inch laptop with room to spare, so I'm stoked to now own an actually chic office commuter — and everyday life — bag, especially in spring and summer. Stock is limited, so grab your own ASAP!" —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

"It's my personal goal to use fewer plastic takeout utensils, in part to be more sustainable but also because I really want to keep my car and utensil drawer from getting too cluttered! I love having this utensil set in my glove compartment. It's easy to store, easy to clean, and easy on the eyes! (Plus, on the rare occasion that I go camping, this set will make me feel very prepared.)" —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

"These disco ball dinner napkins are super-fun for a New Year's Party — they remind me of the final scene of one of my fav movies, 'When Harry Met Sally' — but they also work for celebrations post-New Years! (Bachelor or bachelorette party, anyone?!)" —Sarah Everett, Staff Writer

"I upgraded Pip (my perfect little black cat)'s food bowls this week to bowls with her face on them! Technically, it's a generic black cat, but she can hardly tell the difference. They're both great bowls and a silly, fun thing that adds some joy to her meal routine." —Lilian Tanner, Production Assistant

Home Depot

"I can't stop making DIY ornaments! I think part of the joy is that each is like a mini art project you can complete in one sitting — and when I'm done, I have a ready-made place to display them. One of my favorite DIYs has been these snowflakes made out of toilet paper and paper towel tubes, which come together with just scissors and hot glue. So easy! Once I made a batch, I gave them a coat of spray paint so they'd look a little more charming, a little less Charmin. I used Behr's spray paint for the job in both satin white and a gorgeous shimmery antique copper. I was going to follow with glitter like my inspo project did, but the copper ones look so good just as they are that I'm half tempted to spray paint the rest of the snowflakes to match." —Megan Baker Detloff, Home Projects Director
