“My sister-in-law got me a faux pothos plant from Target for my birthday, and I was absolutely blown away with how good it looks. The stems are all bendable so you can fluff and shape it to look ultra realistic, and they do not skimp on the amount of foliage. It's perched on top of a bookshelf that doesn't get any natural light and looks pretty darn convincing. I'll be going back to Target next time I need another faux plant!” —Megan Bakter Detloff, Home Projects Director

Cozy Earth
was $195.00

“I'm a big fan of these pajamas from Cozy Earth, especially as the colder weather pushes me to be cozy. The walnut shade complements my complexion, and they're so incredibly soft and stretchy that I could wear them every night.” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

“Now that I work from home a few days a week, I find myself ironing less often. I just can’t be bothered with lugging out the ironing board to smooth out a wrinkled T-shirt or button-down, so I usually let the steam of my shower do the dirty work while I get ready in the morning. But after reading our commerce SEO editor’s review of the Nori Press, I decided that this space-saving little gadget was exactly what's been missing from my life, so I snagged it on sale during Prime Day. What's great about the Nori Press is that it saves time because the metal plates press both sides of the garment at once, plus there’s also the option of just steaming out the wrinkles. Game-changer!” —Mark Marino, Executive Director of Commerce

L'Avant Collective

“I wouldn’t exactly say I love cleaning my house — although I’m totally here for the feeling of accomplishment after. To that end, I’m always on the hunt for products that make the process of scrubbing and dusting a little more exciting. Happy to report that L'AVANT Collective is a brand that does just that — especially now that they’ve launched their Blushed Bergamot fragrance, which smells of notes of bergamot, orange blossom, amber, and cedar. It’s floral but not overly so, which is perfect for any season. I did a deep clean of my bedroom and bathroom about a week ago, and I loved how gentle but effective the spray cleaner formula was on my surfaces. The scent also extends to dish soap, hand soap, and cleansing wipes.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

“I recently got this shoe organizer for my partner's closet. I've had over-the-door racks before with little success; the pocket-style ones are too small for his shoes and the ones with the metal rods constantly come apart and clatter to the floor. This does the job and keeps 13 pairs organized and out of the way.” —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

Cozy Earth

“Every year when winter rolls around, my mum breaks out the flannel sheets. I actually do the opposite — instead, I go looking for my lightest, most breathable sheet set. That’s because the heat in my apartment is usually cranked (gotta love older buildings!) so when it’s time to hit the hay, I prefer to sleep in sheets that don’t contribute to my overwhelming warmth. Cozy Earth's super-soft bamboo sheets are a hot apartment godsend. They’re cooling in a subtle way, keeping me at a comfortable temperature while still offering maximum coziness.” —Maddie Bilis, Deputy Lifestyle Director
