This week's picks coming in 3,2,1...

  1. Our guide to cozy pajamas for every type of sleeper. Maybe you get hot while you snooze, maybe you love to be bundled. This list has sleep shirts, flannel bottoms, and a silk-satin robe so you can find your perfect match. Sweet dreams. 

  2. 20 ways to keep a conversation going on a dating app. You said “hey.” And now you don't know what to do. Here's how to get your happy ever after.

  3. A guide to the Trader Joe's items you absolutely need this season. Because going to TJ’s in the fall is basically adult trick-or-treating. The items on this list are scary good. 

  4. 47 new and returning shows to get excited about. Maybe you spent quar bingeing “Lost” from start to finish. Or maybe you rewatched “Friends” for the 3,000th time. Either way, it’s time to watch something that’s actually premiering this decade. Let the good times roll.

  5. How to tackle breakouts. Because you’re scientifically guaranteed to get a pimple the next time you have something important going on. Here are the dos and don’ts for when your skin has a personal vendetta against you.

  6. The perfect fall sneakers. This sustainable shoe company has comfy all-season high tops and low tops in suede and leather. And yes, they’re just right for stepping on crunchy sidewalk leaves. PS: Skimm’rs get 15% off...but only for a limited time. Go go go.*

  7. Recipes to celebrate Rosh Hashanah. There’s brisket, apple and honey inspired dishes, and of course some matzo ball soup. Happy challah-day. 

  8. A present for yourself. Dame Products has you covered. Their Arc is a G-spot vibrator that’s designed for exploring. And Skimm’rs get 15% off their first order. Signed, sealed, delivered.* 

  9. A guide to fall foliage. Bookmark this prediction map to find out when and where the leaves will be falling this year. So you can plan a drive, and, you know, the perfect Insta shot. 

  10. The best phone games, according to people with very stressful jobs. For when you need a break from Zoom calls and deadlines, Sudoku and Animal Crossing to the rescue. If your boss asks, you’re totally just answering emails.

  11. A Taylor Swift HIIT routine. AKA the only kind of workout we’re interested in doing from now on. Are you “...Ready For It?” 

  12. The best nail polish colors you need right now. It’s time to say goodbye to “Ballet Slippers” and hi to something dark and moody. “Caviar Bar,” this is your moment

  13. Answers to the Qs you probably have about traveling right now. Like what to do if you have to get on an airplane. Or how to act if you find yourself at a hotel. Spoiler: stay away from the lobby.

  14. Our fave internet read of the week: on what the end of “KUWTK” says about the state of TV today. They did amazing, sweetie. But now it’s time to say goodbye. 

  15. And finally, three totally random things that make us happy: a Timothée Chalamet candle, a royal family coloring book, and a pumpkin spice mug.
