“I just started using Attitude's Super Leaves Essential Oils hand soap, and I’m really delighted by how it smells — the bergamot and ylang-ylang scent lingers on my hands for a pleasantly long stretch of time. It’s also vegan and made with essential oils, so I’m spared from harsh chemicals or dyes. My little bathroom feels very fancy these days!” —Maddie Bilis, Deputy Lifestyle Director

“For anyone who enjoys gardening at home, I highly recommend buying these garden netting bags to protect your produce. Birds can no longer steal my precious tomatoes. I only wish I had bought them sooner!” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

“Funny enough, May through July in Southern California — at least by the coast — is colder than at any other point in the year. (Which is why, if you visit, you should come in September through November.) To keep my feet warm and ensure that I don't make holes in my favorite socks, I've grabbed these Bombas slippers for shuffling around my home. They come in various patterns, which is a bit of brightness in the midst of all this overcast gray!” —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

Annie Selke

“Your search for a home collaboration that’s captured the essence of summer is over. That’s because yesterday the Frances Valentine Collection for Annie Selke collection launched, and it’s a riot of color, pattern, and joy in textile form. The 28-item-strong assortment includes bedding, pillows, and throws. Although it’s hard to pick a favorite, I’m partial to shopping for something you could use to upgrade what you’re already working with. A set of the Goldie Banded Pillowcases, for example, would perk up run-of-the-mill white sheets, and the Cheyenne Throw couldn’t be a cuter touch in a maximalist-minded bedroom or living room.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I’m a smoothie stan, but I don't love lugging out my blender, finagling it into the outlet behind my toaster oven, and having to carefully unscrew the blade to clean it after. Enter: BlenderCap. This cordless blender bottle looks more like something you'd take to space, with its stainless steel vessel and Apple engineer-designed battery. But it also fits in very discreetly and compactly right on my kitchen counter and has a small footprint. I've used it to blend up a banana-matcha smoothie in the morning and then (after a thorough clean) to whip up some frozen margaritas in the evening — without even having to recharge it.” —Sofia Rivera, Associate Lifestyle Editor
