Need a new place to hang your hat? Replace your plain entryway hooks with something that's got a bit more oomph to its design. This Chevron Wood Coat Rack ($275) should do nicely. It's got plenty of hooks to hold onto your coats, scarves, and purses, and lends a modern aesthetic to the room. Hang a small wooden shelf next to it for your keys, and you've got a total space transformation (without having to do a ton of work!).

You're old school. Forget flipping through your Pinterest page for a recipe, you've got cookbook pages dog-eared and tabbed with sticky notes. Keep your books propped open to your favorite dishes with the Eat Cookbook Holders ($26, set of two). And when the holders aren't in use (everyone deserves a pizza night!), they'll look darling decorating your kitchen counter.

It's not going to be difficult to find a pair of jeans or a skirt to go with the Botanga Tank Top ($38). Oh no, the biggest challenge is going to be putting it over your head and making sure your head and your arms go through the right spots. It's an intricate maze of straps in the back, but once you try it out a few dozen times and get a sense of what goes where, we're sure you'll come up with a great trick to avoid having your head end up next to your armpit.

Simple and flattering, the Turquoise Mod Shift Dress ($146) will make you look effortlessly cool. Don't overthink it and keep your accessories to a minimum. We bet a pair of black and white polka dot flats and a set of enamel bangles would give a visual boost without detracting from the dress's gorgeous turquoise color!

Sometimes we surprise ourselves with how much we're willing to spend on a tube of mascara. Especially when there are plenty of great options that don't break the bank, like Sonia Kashuk's Lashify Mascara ($7). For under $10 you get a clump-free, lengthening formula with a built-in lash comb and mirrored case for flawless application.

End the age-old argument that stems from the seemingly simple question, "What do you want for dinner?" Two Tumbleweeds's Foodie Dice Seasonal Dinners Pouch ($24) gives you eight different dice featuring options for your protein, cooking method, grain or carb, herb, and a seasonal veggie (of which there are four to correspond with the seasons). Just make sure you roll your meal well before dinner prep time so you can shop, unless, of course, you regularly keep your fridge stocked with dandelion greens, dill, or arugula.

When you buy this Corioliss Mini Vintage Compact Hairdryer ($49), you're probably paying more for the aesthetic than you are the functionality of it, but it's kinda worth it, right? It's cute enough to hang from a hook in a small bathroom, and you can take it with you on your numerous travels (it even comes with its own matching travel bag!).

Okay, we'll set aside our jealousy of you and your amazing pool long enough to show you this Serena Pool Float ($139). Adorable, no? The top is covered in a durable twill fabric that's resistant to water and chlorine damage, and it comes in a few style options. The goldfish is a showstopper, but if you prefer something a little more subdued while you glide around your pool (*grumble grumble*), the other patterns feature pretty ikat and coral patterns.

Radiant Orchid may be Pantone's color of the year, but when it comes to housewares, it seems indigo is tops. We've been spotting the back-to-basics dye color being used on everything from tea towels to dessert plates ($16, set of four). And even though it's vibrant, indigo can be used as a neutral, making it an awesome addition to your current home decor color scheme.

While a Personal Shopper can give you what you need for real life, I'd Rather Be sets you up for fantasy lives you didn't even know you had. Because sometimes a new shampoo isn't enough for a whole new you. (Want us to outfit your alter ego or your alternate reality? Just say the word!)
If you have a baby girl, have ever seen a baby girl, or have ever walked past the baby girl section at Target, you know what we mean. The clothes are fabulous. They're fabulous, and they know it. And, more importantly, they're not afraid to be fabulous. Although we'd never want to go all out with a giant beaded flower headband, a tutu, every-animal-on-everything, and 43 shades of neon pink and purple, we would like to embrace more of the whimsy that is infant fashion.

This organic body oil ($26) may be intended for soothing babies' skin, but we say f*ck that. Babies spend their days sleeping and eating - you're the one who really deserves to be massaged with this stuff! Drizzle some into your bath or apply straight to your skin to wind down after a long day of running around after your kiddos.

You're not a peacock, you're a pea-chick*! Strut your stuff with these adorable Peachick Earrings ($30), which echo the shape of the iconic bird's plumage. To make the jewelry stand out even more, the "feathers" of the earring act as the gemstone stud's backing piece, so that you get an extra special three-dimensional look with them.
*Actually, in the bird world, you'd be a peahen, but we'd rather be called chicks than hens.

Everyone loves a good pun, even if they deny it! And birthdays? They're the best time to break out the good ones. Give your BFF the Off the Hook Birthday Card ($5) by Hello!Lucky when you head to her bash. Toss in a pair of concert tix and/or a bottle of bubbly and we're pretty sure the "off the hook" part will most certainly come true!

So you may not have a diamond stunner yet, but you can still walk around with a legit rock on your finger. Each KV BIJOU ring ($51) is unique, since they're made with a rough, uncut citrine gemstone. And unlike a regular ol' diamond, citrines are said to have healing properties that ease both anxiety and digestion!
