9 Products We’re Into That Haven’t Hit The Site Yet

We love the thrill of the find, and sometimes there are just too many options + not enough time to write about them all. Thus, the need [read: necessity] for a round up of our favourites that haven’t hit the site just yet. From more sartorial options like this Perfect Wrap One-Piece, to everyday solutions like this boob tape for every skin-tone x shape. We’re here to unload the links we’re loving instead of keeping them to ourselves or letting them disappear in the slack thread ether. . .

01 | Summersalt Swimwear

Warmer months are upon us, and after getting served ads + emails from Summersalt, I finally took the plunge with their B+W Perfect Wrap One-Piece. I was pleasantly surprised with the cut x material, as well as how put together it made me feel [for a swimsuit] — ideal for a weekend by the pool.

06 | Kinto Cold Brew Carafe

Spotlight on our EIC for this trusty find. Quality cold brew made easy + mess-free with the carafe that saves time. I was desperately in need of an at-home cold brew maker that wouldn’t take up too much space in the fridge + was budget friendly. Not only is the Kinto sleek x beautiful, it truly makes the best homemade cold brew I have ever tasted. P.S. She’s 100% dishwasher safe, so all excuses for the drive-thru cup are off the table.

03 | Violife Vegan Mozzarella

This grated vegan mozzarella from Violife has been my go-to substitute for the real deal. It is particularly delicious on salads with a balsamic vinaigrette. Their other cheese alternative products are sure to please + some can even be snatched from Walmart

02 | Smoked Cocktail Kit

After experiencing tobacco-infused cocktails [back in the traveling days] in Santa Fe, my better half and I have been determined to recreate them. This cocktail smoker has been just the solve. The kit comes with an elegant glass cloche, oak wood base, butane torch, and hickory wood chips to impart smooth x smoky flavors to your at home cocktails. Better yet, smoke cheeses, meats, or homemade sauces + blow your friends away with all your hostess tricks. Plus, it just looks chic sitting pretty on our counter space.

05 | Baggu Laptop Sleeve

My laptop [aka work life-line] is precious to me, so this puffy, protective sleeve is a perfect fit. I slip my laptop in + either carry the case with me or put it in my bag x go. Consider it a sleeping bag for your computer.

04 | JuneShine Hard Kombucha

In lieu of all the craze around seltzers lately, I’ve been reaching for this hard kombucha from JuneShine. The packaging is gorgeous, the flavors are delicious, and it can be shipped nationwide. My favourite is Acai Berry because it tastes like a glass of red wine. However, the other flavors are pretty yummy as well. It’s worth an honorable mention.

07 | Belif Aqua Bomb Moisturizer

Seeing is ‘belif’-ing with this ultra hydrating gel cream. It’s an instant surge of moisture for my face + neck that can be applied both day x night. The key ingredient is “lady’s mantle.” Not exactly sure what that is, but it sounds like a mythical herb grown by goddesses in a secret garden. Pro tip: Store it in the fridge for a cooling effect, or apply it like an overnight mask to wake up with a dewy glow that IMO could never be achieved with eight hours of sleep alone.

08 | Good Lines Boob Tape

Lifts + holds, while being sweat x waterproof — this tape is quite literally magic. Woman-founded + inclusive of all shades x sizes, Good Lines strikes as a winner with evolving bodies in mind. Comparable to the well-known Skims tape. . .

09 | Flair Espresso Maker

My husband and I have had the signature version of this for over a year, and we use it every day [makes for idyllic at-home lattes]. Since we bought it, we’ve had at least four of our friends buy it because they loved it so much. It’s the perfect alternative to the expensive espresso machines. Don’t let this machine intimidate you. Even the most amateur coffee lover can operate this with ease.
