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

  1. 11 products for anyone who hates being hot. The sweat, the humidity, the frizz … tragic. We’ve got a neck fan, something to prevent thigh-chafing, and cooling towels. Ah, sweet relief.

  2. The five best wines under $10 from Trader Joe’s. Goodbye pour drink choices. Hello grape deals. Happy hour, is that you?

  3. Everything you need to know about Rihanna’s new skincare line. SOS please. Fenty Skin has arrived. These are the products that will make you shine bright like a diamond.

  4. Emmy-nominated shows to catch up on. In case you still haven’t watched “Killing Eve” or “Insecure,” it’s time to start bingeing. Weekend plans = confirmed.

  5. Outdoor games that are actually fun. Since your social life is now 100% outside. This list has backyard bocce, pong golf, and giant wood dominoes. No cheating. 

  6. Genius breakfast ideas. Raise your hand if you dream about breakfast when you go to sleep at night. Same. These recipes put the good in good morning.

  7. 16 movies that are inspiring AF. Like “Wild,” “The Pursuit of Happyness,” and “Hidden Figures.” Get your tissues ready. 

  8. The best log cabins on Airbnb right now. For when you just want a weekend to log off from your responsibilities. Plaid shirts, fire pits, and “folklore” not included

  9. 22 things you should never buy from the grocery store. Like salad dressing and granola bars. Cleanup in aisle shook. 

  10. Everything you need to know about CBD oil and self-care. Like WTF cannabidiol actually is, what it can do for your skin, and what products you can try right now. Chill vibes coming through.

  11. An app that helps you identify your plants. Because there’s a stranger in your house. And you don’t know how to care for it. “Picture This” to the rescue. 

  12. 28 pinterest food hacks...and whether they actually work. We know you’ve been losing sleep wondering if you can actually make bread from a blender. Rest easy, the verdict is in.  

  13. Beauty secrets from drag queens. Here’s what contestants from “RuPaul's Drag Race” use to get their skin so good. Ready, set, glow.

  14. 10-minute workouts. Because you’re sooo busy with plans these days. Bookmark these now, sweat it out later. 

  15. A new internet read we loved: on the 25 best opening lines to use on dating apps. Spoiler: “Hey, what’s up?” is not it. 

  16. …and an old one: I’ll Share My Salary Information if You Share Yours.” Here’s why women are talking more openly about their money. And why you should, too. 

  17. And finally, three totally random things that made us happy this week: a dumpling AiProds case; a feminist bingo set; and this chic tissue box.
