It’s time to debunk the old adage, “April showers bring May flowers,” because the only flowers in my future are the ones I’m buying for myself (thank you, Miley Cyrus). Speaking of flowers, is anyone else as obsessed with the new “it” girl, Sofia Richie, as much as I am? Because the flowers at that wedding were literally to die for. I’m not kidding when I say I refreshed my IG every five seconds to see if she posted anything else. It’s so ironic too, because before this wedding, I think the last time I heard her name was during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. There’s no doubt in my mind that Kris Jenner is finding a way to capitalize on that.
Back to the aforementioned flowers I’m buying myself — I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t buying other things too. I’m pretty sure that I’m so chronically influenced that TikTok gets a commission anytime I open the app. But, I’m trying to turn over a new leaf and be in my “quality era” because of, well, the price of eggs would make my grandmother cry. So, what’s a girl to do when she needs some advice on what to actually invest in? Turn to her co-workers. Here’s a little rundown of all the shit we bought this month that’s *actually* worth it.
A Dress That Ebbs And Flows Like My Mood
This dress is actually incredible. I just wore it to a part over the weekend and it was perfect. I love the fact that it’s multiple sizes in one. You can decide if you want to show some skin or not and how much. — Brittany Levine, Senior Art Director

Feeling The Love, Literally
I’m not always able to see my niece/family who live hundreds of miles away so this helps us express our love for each other even when we can’t catch up on the phone because of our busy schedules. I love that you can send a vibration whenever you’re missing that person and it vibrates on their end. Just a constant reminder how important my family is to me. — Courtney Blackwell, Content Manager

This Snack Is What Dreams Are Made Of
I’m not sure what it is about trail mix, but I could literally eat it by the handful at any moment of the day. Idk if it’s the nostalgia factor or t that this particular one includes the most elite combo of peanut butter and chocolate, but I honestly couldn’t live through the workday without the Favorite Day Peanut Butter S’mores Trail Mix. It’s the perfect mix of sweet and salty, plus I don’t have to waste precious time picking out the raisins. Fair warning, you might get addicted because it’s actually that good. — Abbey Westlin, Branded and Affiliate Content Editor
Shop it: Peanut Butter Smores Trail Mix, $4.49, Target
The Perfect White Tee Doesn’t Exi-
I’ve been on the hunt for the best cropped but not too cropped & loose but not too loose white tee. The Wonderland T-Shirt from Sunday Best is perfect for the warmer months with it being lightweight and comfy at a reasonable price (not all of us can afford a $300 white tee from The Row.) It hits right at my belly button and the cut hits perfectly at my shoulders making it so flattering. BRB, buying every color rn. — Becca Kang, People Operations Coordinator
Shop it: Wonderland T-Shirt, $30, Aritzia
Brooklyn Pasta Lab
If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly craving really, REALLY good, creamy, chewy pasta. The type you cannot seem to ever make at home, no matter how hard you try. But you can’t get a reservation anywhere, and it’s never *quite* as good as you want it to be when you order it in.
ENTER: Brooklyn Pasta Lab. If you’ve been anywhere near me in the past month, you’ve heard me singing its praises. Think: if Carbone collabed with Hello Fresh, but, like, way better. With about 20 different dishes ranging from pastas to meats to fresh ricotta to focaccia to some truly incredible tiramisu, picking out your order will be the hardest part of this meal. But once you’ve finally got that down, all you need to do is press purchase and prepare for a delicious evening ahead. — Ali Friedlander, Marketing Manager

Low Lift “No Make-Up” Makeup
If you’re someone like me who cannot stop buying whatever new makeup product Gen Z is pedaling on TikTok — but also wants the “no makeup” makeup look — then this is the product for you. It’s the Stila One Step Corrector. Color-correcting is your best friend when you have redness/discoloration. This little bottle saves me so much when it comes to not having to cake my face with makeup. I truly can’t recommend it enough. — Samantha Bush, Content Manager
Shop it: Stila One Step Corrector, $35.64, Amazon
Shoes That Make You Want To Get Off The Couch
I love that they have the goes-with-everything and slim cut vibe of the trendy Adidas Sambas and Onitsuka Tigers with the nostalgic appeal of a more classic dad sneaker. What I didn’t expect, however, is that they are somehow more comfortable for walking than my highly padded Hoka Cliftons?! It seriously feels like I’m walking on memory foam-lined sidewalks. If comfort and style weren’t enough to sway you, they’re also made of eco-friendly, recycled materials, so you can feel slightly better about your shopping habit. Plus, I’ve yet to see them anywhere IRL besides the storefront on Great Jones (and I can’t say the same about the Sambas…). If you’re also the “it’s only a 45-minute walk” friend in your group, you’re about to get a lot more annoying—you’re welcome. —Maddy Paul, Senior Content Manager, Fashion & Lifestyle

Time To Calm TF Down
Picture this: You just got back from vacation, you’re ready to show off (and brag about) your hard-earned tan, but then—disaster strikes and the sunburn on your face starts to peel. We’ve all been there… including me. Right now. Allow me to introduce you to the holy grail: Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator. This gel mask is my savior for redness, extra dryness, and irritation, and helps my face calm TF down.It cools and relieves the burn, while also hydrating the skin. My skin literally drinks it up like a glass of water. The best part is, you can leave it on for a quick 10-minute mask, or even leave it on overnight depending on how bad your skin needs that extra TLC. If you’re anything like me and spend a little too much time in the sun, this will be your new lifeline.Pro tip: keep it in the refrigerator for an extra refreshing and cooling effect. —Hannah Hampton, Account Manager, Brand Partnerships
Shop it: Cucumber Gel Mask, $55, Target
Shoes I’d Buy In Every Color
“These are THE most comfortable heels in the entire world, especially with the fact that wedding season has officially started. I currently own them in four colors, but truly, if I could fit them in my apartment, I would purchase all 35 (yes 35!!!) colors and wear them on repeat.” — Karla Barone Sudhalter, Director, Integrated Marketing
