If this isn’t the most glorious backgammon board you’ve ever laid eyes on, I’ll eat my hat! It’s made with gorgeous crystal-clear lucite with electric pink accents and is such an incredible centerpiece for your coffee table. Honestly, you don’t even need to know how to play backgammon—it’s just that much fun to look at. It also closes up into a clear briefcase, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Whip it out as soon as there’s a lull in the conversation at your next dinner party and win host of the year.

It’s so exciting that light therapy is becoming more and more accessible, because it really works, especially for anti-aging. You don’t have to take my word for this—study after study has proven that light therapy can be used to activate oxygen molecules in aging skin to help it rejuvenate and heal. True Company is an exciting new brand that’s bringing in-office treatments home with this age-reversing collection that includes a hand-held LED device and a crazy secret ingredient… bee venom! Wild, right?! The bee venom serum tightens and firms skin, reducing puffiness and even treating problem skin. That combined with the ultrasonic light therapy system is like magic for fine lines and wrinkles, stimulating collagen production and tightening and toning skin. You’re getting an amazing deal with the full set, so get on it—stat!

Traveling with jewelry can be so tricky. I feel like I always end up losing rings and necklaces on every trip—and it seems like it’s always the ones I like best. It’s also no fun to put your lovely jewelry into a plastic bag or a spare pocket. This adorable travel trinket box is the perfect solution, bite-sized and handy with removable little suede cushion for rings. It’s made with buttery Spanish leather and Italian goat suede and comes in the cutest colors! I’m planning on getting it customized with initials for my sister’s birthday. She always complains about losing rings or necklaces when she takes them off for yoga class, so this would make the best gift.

OK—I’m really excited to share this one. This stunning horn necklace is just so unexpected and special, entirely handcrafted and made sustainably. I can just imagine wearing it with flowy dresses, crisp button-ups, simple tee and jeans… pretty much anything! It’s made by this genius French designer who creates the coolest horn jewelry and combs. Her entire collection is just so lust-worthy, I highly recommend checking it out!

You’ve definitely heard me wax poetic about another Frenchy secret: Leonor Greyl Paris haircare. Well, just add this to the long list of excellent products they make because this is officially my holy grail conditioner. Not only does it hydrate and soften hair to ultimate silkiness, it keeps color brilliant through antioxidant-rich amaranth and healthy botanical oils like jojoba. It looks like a small tube, but you only need a little to work through your strands. It also has absolutely zero synthetic preservatives and instead housed in an “airless tube” that helps it stay fresh for the longest time possible—genius!

In case you missed them, here are a couple past favorites!

My brows have never really been able to recover after years of over plucking (darn you, ‘90s!), but I—like probably many of you—have been yearning for the full, luscious eyebrows of my past. Luckily, I found my solution in this little black bottle of magic. The brow-thickening serum was developed by Tonya Crooks, the celebrity brow guru whose star-studded client list includes Megan Fox, Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Mendes, and Julia Roberts (just to name a few) and I’m so impressed at how well it works. The round brush vibrates at three speeds to increase circulation and hits your sparse brows with a revolutionary serum that grows, conditions, and strengthens your strands. I’ve been using it for only a few weeks and am already seeing new growth at my tails! I’m so excited to keep using this one.

Okay, so this cute little bag is definitely about to become your new obsession for spring. (It’s already mine.) Founded by a Harvard-trained architect, Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger designs these really chic, really functional “it” bags that the fashion set adores. Inspired by structural concepts and made with eco-friendly microsuede or micro leather, this bag can be adapted, depending on your mood. With a silhouette inspired by paper bags, the clever design can be worn two ways: pull up the adjustable strap for a shoulder bag or pull them out for an of-the-moment backpack. When you look inside, the contrast lining offers an unexpected pop of color, which I love. Get it before it’s gone!
