You've been hitting the weight room religiously (yay!), but all those squats and deadlifts have made your legs and glutes too ripped for your skinny jeans (f*ck). Thanks to Barbell Apparel, you won't have to walk around 24/7 in your workout capris - this amazing company makes jeans for stylish folks like you who also happen to have muscles. We think these slim-fit jeans ($149) are just the thing to show off your rockin' bod.

Aww, how darling are these heart-shaped blushes ($30) from Too Faced? So darling we're going to drop $90 to buy all three color combinations because we can't decide which is our favorite. The only thing cuter than the packaging will be your face once you sweep the long-lasting, multi-dimensional color onto your cheeks.

Does anyone really need a faceless Queen of England scooping up their Moose Tracks ice cream? No, not really. (In fact, it's kinda creepy.) But... that pun and that plastic pink dress... they're too good to pass up!
Ice Queen Scoop ($13)

The gluten-free craze has given grains a bad rap (we, on the other hand, choose to look at it as "more delicious bread for the rest of us"). Even if you've sworn off wheat in your diet, you can still use it to treat your skin with this face gel ($6). Wheatgerm gently exfoliates your skin, while cucumber extracts nourish and treat problem areas. It's not as awesome as a thick slice of bread covered in butter, but we're still pretty excited about it.

August is totally the Sunday of summer, and while you want to just lie around and soak up the last of the lazy days, you actually have to drag your butt around town and start organizing for the oncoming fall. Boo. Of course, if you're a parent of school-aged kiddos, you may be singing a happier tune. Pack up the rascals and ship 'em off to their classes. Don't forget to feed them, though; tuck a meal in one of these fun lunch bags ($20) from Fluf. We're partial to the T-Rex, but there are five other designs to meet the wants of your choosy kids.

Summertime is brutal on the lips - if you're not constantly chugging water, chances are your pout will feel (and look!) super dry. Luckily, that's an easy problem to fix - just roll on some of Kat Burki's Glossy Lip Treatment ($28). It uses Vitamin E to soften and hydrate the lips, and it finishes like a gloss so you don't have to layer a bunch of products over your poor, chapped pout.

Hot Tools was already one of our favorite brands for styling tools, but they went and made us love them even more by coming out with this Rainbow Gold Curling Iron ($54). It's the perfect size for creating loose, beachy waves, and the colorful barrel makes us happy every time we use it.

We're beach-lovin' creatures so we can't ever have too many bikinis in our drawer! The Victoria's Secret Beach Sexy Ruffle Halter Top ($29) is one of our favorites because we can pair it with any bottom and it's available in tons of colors. Visit Victoria's Secret and for a limited time, you can score a free mini cooler with your $75 purchase (code 75MINI). Clearance merchandise is excluded from this coupon. This offer ends Monday, August 18.

Even if you purchase a Menu du Jour Message Board ($30) with the intention to use it as a meal planning aid, chances are it'll rarely see the weekly menu listed on its surface. Friends, family, children... they're all out to foil your organizational plans by drawing doodles (some probably a bit lewd for the kitchen), erasing your pretty penmanship, and altering your shopping list to feature only ice cream-based items. Oh well, embrace the creativity... and then cook 'em Brussels sprouts for dinner three nights in a row!

Bright, cheerful, and a safe bet for friends suffering from seasonal allergies, the Pop-Up Sunflower Note Cards ($20, box of 6) by Robert Sabuda for MoMA will make your quick notes stand apart from the crowded refrigerator where there are plenty of competing notes and photos!

Given our tendency to run into furniture (and trip over our own feet), it would take a miracle to erase the bruises from our shins. This tinted serum ($55) not only covers contusions, it acts as a subtle self-tanner and hides scars and dark spots while still looking natural. We definitely won't miss having to explain all of our mystery bruises to inquiring co-workers every time we wear a skirt to the office.

It's sweet that you're still using that Minnie Mouse trivet your mom gave you when you got your first place, but it's probably time to spring for something a little more grown-up and modern. Like this geometric three-piece trivet set ($20), which lends a bit of style to your dining room while also protecting your table. In fact, they're so pretty that it'd be a shame to hide them in a drawer - you may just want to leave them out at all times.

We're still not exactly sure how 4D differs from 3D - we tried looking it up, but it involved a lot of talk about vectors and Euclidean space, so we're just going to go ahead and trust that it's a good thing. Not only is this mascara ($10) going to take your lashes to the fourth dimension (whatever that is), the brush is made from unique hollow fibers to make your lashes look super-long.

It's true, you know. Once you pop out a kid, you're going to turn into one of those dreaded over-sharers. You may think you won't fall into that trap, but it's unavoidable. Embrace it, and snap your perfectly photogenic baby into this Instagram Star Baby One-Piece ($22). At least you can be self-aware as you upload all eight new photos of the little to your feed.

Quit lighting your candles with ugly BIC lighters! Set this little guy ($42) on your mantle instead - you'll always have matches at the ready, and your guests won't think you're hiding a smoking habit when they find tiny lighters stashed in nooks and crannies throughout the living room.
