I have to admit, I’m in a bit of a post-Goodbyn news funk. It’s like finding the perfect dress & finding out they won’t have your size in time for the big event. Or maybe like my friend who had great concert tickets, planned a rare, evening out with her hubby, and realized at their pre-concert dinner that the concert was the night before.
Maybe it’s not as bad as that. Maybe the lamenting is just an excuse to get a little pick-me-up. You know, a little “something-something” that instantly makes a day better. What I really want is a five foot metal chicken* to leave on someone’s doorstep (*don’t understand? Add Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (a mostly true memoire) to your summer reading list. Though if cursing like a sailor is offensive to you…forget the recommendation!).
Since I don’t have a metal chicken, here are 5 fabulous pick-me-ups that won’t break the bank since they’re all under $40.
- Organic Soap Sampler Box: It’s like seven gifts in one! Six amazing handmade organic soaps, plus a fabulous recycled divided box to reuse once the soaps are gone. You’ll smell great, have super moisturized skin, and an organizational box to boot! $40
- Mini-Mani Set: A little change of color can make everything better. A little summer bright on those fingers and toes can’t help but make you smile. No DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde and it’s vegan, so your nails will thank you too. Set includes: natural cotton drawstring bag, SpaRitual vegan polish remover, SpaRitual vegan polish, SpaRitual biodegradable nail file, and a chocolate square. $18
- Red Beeswax Buddha: He’s just adorable and makes me happy. Hand-crafted from 100% pure NY beeswax, colored with natural plant-based dye. on sale, $10
- Ella-E Vintage Blue Earrings: A little bling makes you happy? These will be your go-to summer earrings. And, since they’re hand-made and contain a vintage stone from the 40’s-50’s, be ready to hear “love your earrings, where did you get them?!” $39.95
- 3-wick Limoncello Candle: What does this candle offer? Over 100 hours of natural citronella, non-GMO US soy hand-poured in a gorgeous reusable bowl. Which means you’ll have to spend 100 hours this summer enjoying the outdoors with a book, friends, a margarita, or any combination of the three! $30
