I’ve been a longtime superfan of the elegant leather travel bags and work totes from SENREVE, so it’s no surprise that their new handbags have me drooling onto my computer. I’m especially obsessed with the Barrel Bag. It comes in three colors, two sizes, and the possibilities are endless. I suggest taking the look up a notch with one of their gorgeous chain straps.
My Thank You notes just got a glow up thanks to this Laser Line Guide. It’s an easy-to-use tool to keep your handwriting straight, whether you’re writing thank you notes, formatting a scrapbook or making place cards for a dinner party. Personally, I love this version because it provides vertical and horizontal laser lines but there's also this smaller, simpler version!
Embryolisse is an iconic French skincare brand and their Lait-Crème Concentré is a cult product for a reason. Actually, for a number of reasons! It’s a rich, multi-task moisturizing face cream for all skin types. It’s also a hydrating makeup primer and nourishing face mask. It's true super powers are at play when applied as a primer anywhere your makeup tends to crease or get cakey like under your eyes.
La Double J’s bold patterns are based on original vintage designs sourced from the archives of some of Italy's finest textile mills. Exhibit A: the maxi skirt I'm wearing above that was featured in this recent video. (FYI, you can find all of my outfit details HERE.) However, also from the brand is this vibrant clutch which is soft, lightweight, and trimmed with the sweetest ruffles around the edges. This floral version is on sale for only $54 and seems like the perfect way to instantly dress up a classic jeans and tee look.
I’m pretty sure the Triple Hyaluronic Acid & Lipopeptide Serum from Beauty Pie was sourced directly from the fountain of youth. If I put it on after I wash my face before I put on makeup, it gives me plumped, hydrated, GLASS SKIN all day long. It’s a miracle-in-a-bottle thanks to its potent blend of hyaluronic acid, plumping polysaccharides, and gravity-fighting super peptides. Plus, my code MARYORTONSENTME will get you $10 off.
My home design style tends to be very traditional, but I really love incorporating a pop of Scandinavian minimalism and Nordic Peace heard the call. They have everything from mirrors and serveware to jewelry and phone cases. I went down an epic rabbit hole on the site and fell in love at least three times: with this tray, this glassware and this vase.
Whether you can execute a perfect pirouette or not, these ballet flats from Margaux will make you feel CHIC. They are cult-favorite flats because they’re as comfortable as they are beautiful (they’re basically the same silhouette as the Chanel ballet flats for under $200). Better yet, they can be personalized, come in tons of colors and are available in three widths.
This universal adapter doubles as a charger, which is a brilliant answer to every international traveler’s prayers. This powerful adapter is compatible in 200 countries, has five USB ports, and boasts enough watts to fast charge just about everything in your luggage. All that and it fits in your pocket!
This NYX lip liner pencil is a current star in my makeup bag. I personally love it in Nude Truffle, which is a slightly brown hue. When I layer it with a light nude lip (like this one in Brun Pale), I swear the combination makes my lips look bigger. If you love a good drugstore makeup find as much as I do, check out NYX’s collection of lip pencils and find the color that works for you.
When you can’t bake banana bread for a friend, send one! That’s the idea behind these heart-shaped banana breads from Gone Bananas Bread Company. This delightfully irreverent company makes (and ships!) chocolate chip, blueberry and nut banana breads and if the sweet treat itself doesn’t make you smile, I’m sure their tongue in cheek name will.
These Beach Blankets from Geometry are little works of art. Actually, they’re pretty big works of art — each blanket is 62”x65.” They’re made from recycled materials, are quick-drying, ultra-absorbent and there are literally forty artful designs to choose from. Use at the actual beach or for any end-of-summer/early fall picnics on the horizon. Kids might be going back to school, but we have a solid two months of great weather left!
If you haven't accepted the fact that the claw clip trend of the nineties is back, it's time. Don't worry, this isn't a slippery slope—no one is going to revisit the butterfly clips you got from Claire’s. But, these checkered claw clips are my favorite modern take on the trend and I'm particularly fond of two sets I've purchased recently from Amazon: this four pack of tortoise shell colors (two solid, two checkered) and this wavy two pack (one checkered, one solid tortoise). I was wearing the latter in this recent video and basically haven't taken it off since.
I can’t get over this maritime tweed jacket from J. Crew. They took their best-selling style and updated it with a slimmer fit, cropped length, and gold buttons. It comes in Natural, Navy and a powdery Pale Seascape blue that’s the polished pinnacle of nautical fashion. The natural version is an amazing dupe for this Nili Lotan jacket I've worn on repeat in the last year! This is a wardrobe staple with high sell-out potential.
Use these gorgeous hand-decorated delft tiles from Petra Palumbo to tell a story on your walls. Each delft tile has a whimsical illustration (from a needle and thread to playing cards to the Eiffel Tower!) that you can mix and match in your bathroom, kitchen or laundry room for a playful touch of nostalgia. They come in Blue, Green, Crimson, Manganese and Sepia. If you’re not embarking on any renovation projects anytime soon, these tiles would also make great coasters! And, if you’re looking for some sweet housewarming or hostess gifts, check out Petra Palumbo’s other products here.
The Dutch founder of made-to-order cookie company The Rounds was inspired by the bakeries of Europe. I can personally confirm that their handmade savory rounds transported me to Holland. They are divine! Their sweet offerings, like these sugar cookies, can be made in any custom color of your choosing and might be reason enough to throw a party. Bookmark this for the next time you're entertaining or need a unique hostess gift.
Reformation is known for beautiful dresses sourced from deadstock fabrics, with an eye to sustainability. Public Service Announcement: Don’t sleep on their denim! I found these killer high-rise cropped jeans with the perfect straight leg. The only thing better than their flattering fit is the discovery that Reformation made them in ELEVEN more colors, half of which are on sale right now!
I’m not a big heart-shaped person, but my face 100% morphed into the heart-eye emoji when I saw this Saint Laurent x JL Coquet Heart Coffee Mug Set. The set includes four cups and four saucers made of porcelain in collaboration with J.L. Coquet. It comes in multiple colorways including white and has to be just about the chicest (is that a word?) vessel for your morning coffee.
The Capri Leather Sneaker from KOIO is the perfect basic sneaker. And, when I say “basic” I don’t mean unoriginal, I mean basic like a fine Italian canvas. These sneakers are handmade by the same Italian artisans as Chanel and are quite possibly the most comfortable sneakers I've ever owned. They come in eleven neutral colorways, five of which are varying shades of white and off-white because the brand understands that these subtleties matter. If you’re between sizes, I’d recommend sizing down. I own the white but am thinking of this suede option for fall!
These Gorilla Tubs are going to have you wanting to garden, host a party and tidy up your house ALL AT ONCE. They are food-grade, non-toxic and come in a ton of colors, shapes and sizes. You could use them as backup laundry bins, toy storage, or an ice bucket for entertaining. They are a perfect storage or transport solution for anything and everything in or out of the house — snacks, clothing donations, gardening tools, potting soil, you name it! Everyone needs a few of these on hand.
In Good Taste is a wine company that has curated high-quality wines into tasting flights, featuring single serving mini bottles. Genius, right? Each mini bottle of wine is about a glass and a half, so you can be adventurous and try out new wines without committing to a whole bottle. Each flight comes with six or eight servings so order the flight of your choosing and host a tasting with friends!
I love these Wish Papers from TOPS Malibu that are inspired by an ancient Chinese tradition. You crumple the paper into a ball, close your eyes and make a wish. Then, unfold the paper, form it into a cylinder, stand it on a plate and light it with a match. When the flame goes out, the ash will rise and float in the air! This would be such a fun addition to a backyard campfire, as a birthday favor or incorporated into a dinner tablescape.
