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

1. How to (majorly) simplify your beauty routine. 

Because nobody has time for 17 steps. This list has a lip balm that’s also a skin salve, a concealer that doubles as sunscreen, and a eyeliner stamp to help your shaky hand. Easy, breezy, beautiful. 

2. 20 veggie snack ideas.

Avocado dips, avo lots of other things that don’t have ‘cado in them. 3 PM just got a whole lot better. 

3. The most anticipated new movies dropping this fall. 

Last week we gave you TV let’s hear it for the big screen (er, that you’re probably watching on the small screen). 

4. 16 products that’ll save you some time and energy. 

For when you just can’t. Enter: things to make cooking easier, something that’ll stop your sheets from riding up, and a hair tool that’ll change your life (seriously). Small victories, coming right up.

We spy: the peanut butter of all peanut butters. Plus so much more (hi, sea salt plantain chips). Clear eyes, full carts, can’t lose.

6. 20 things to declutter in your living room. 

For when you've binged “Get Organized with The Home Edit” and now you can't sleep until all your belongings are in labeled bins. These tips will take 20 minutes or less. May the cleaning forces be with you.  

7. A chance to win sustainable goodies.

8. 14 products that'll make you feel better about your WFH space.

9. New running kicks. 

Colder days = better runs, so it’s time for shoes to match. The Cloud X from Swiss brand On is lightweight, comfy, and super agile. With cushioning that adapts to your stride. Psst...Skimm’rs can try them out for 30 days with no obligation to buy. Feet, meet pavement.* 

10. The best face masks for people with glasses.
