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

  • 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.
  • The five best wines under $10 from Trader Joe’s. Goodbye pour drink choices. Hello grape deals. Happy hour, is that you?
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • 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.
  • 16 movies that are inspiring AF. Like “Wild,” “The Pursuit of Happyness,” and “Hidden Figures.” Get your tissues ready. 
  • 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
  • 22 things you should never buy from the grocery store. Like salad dressing and granola bars. Cleanup in aisle shook. 
  • 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.
  • 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. 
  • 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.

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