Skip the fancy-shmancy table settings during your holiday meals this year. Break out your simple white plates and add a Holiday Truths Napkin ($45, set of 6) to each seat. The napkins will still lend a festive vibe to dinner, but without all the pretentiousness of linens you're not allowed to get dirty. Just remember to reiterate what napkin #3 says: You spill red wine on it, you bought it.

We're not obsessed with Black Beauty anymore, but we still have a soft spot for horses. Too bad these nail decals ($2, set of 20) weren't around when we were kids - we would have worn one on each nail for sure! But since we're adults, we'll probably limit it to one prancing pony on a ring finger every once in a while.

With the sexiness of lace and the comfort of cotton, this Naja Lace Panty ($16) is your perfect compromise. You don't have to spend all day inconspicuously itching your bum because the lace is scratchy, but you still get to feel confident that you're wearing something prettier than your back-of-the-underwear-drawer laundry day briefs. We'd call that a big win!

Babies in brights? Yes, please. We don't think we could resist a little one dressed in this Citron Speckle Cozy Romper ($29) from Little Hip Squeaks. We'll hold her and coo at her and gush over her adorbs cheeks and little toesies and wiggly bum. Then, when she starts making those bearing-down-poo faces, we'll hand her back to mom or dad.

You kept your SO up until 2 a.m. talking about your feelings - the least you can do is present him with this eye serum for men ($34) the next morning. Just half a pump (plus a quad shot espresso) is enough to reduce puffiness, hide dark circles, and make him feel human enough to head off to work.

Even if the wind is howling, and the rain is pouring, with the Utsukushii Resin Bangle ($28), you can trap spring inside your jewelry... forever! Okay, these pink Japanese magnolia blossoms aren't real, but you know what we mean. It's never a bad idea to keep some reminder of life on your person in the dead of winter.

Whether or not you knew the original 1995 movie reference or not, you've probably noticed the increasing use of the name "Felicia" as essentially another way to call someone a "basic b*tch." And girl, sometimes you just don't have time for those types of people when you're on a mission. Clear the paths with this not-so-friendly but necessary Bye Felicia Tee ($30). (As a side note, we're guessing there aren't going to be too many new parents naming their bundles of joy Felicia this year.)

The holiday party season is almost upon us! Make sure you're prepped for any celebration with Jouer's Party Perfect pouch ($48). Use the liner and mascara to create a smoky eye, swipe on the nude lipstick, and stash your credit card and a couple of extra-strength Advil in the leopard print bag. Congratulations, you're ready to party!

It's a coat... for your butt! Although we're sure that this Columbia Rockaway Dens II Skirt ($84) keeps your nether regions and the tops of your thighs super warm, is there ever going to be a time when you need that part to be warm and not the rest of your bottom half? And besides that, does this even look good? Or does it look like you cut off part of an old jacket and safety pinned it around your waist?

We're going to go ahead and file this lip balm set ($13) under "things we buy for kids but wind up keeping for ourselves." Apparently it doesn't matter how old we are, we'll always be suckers for cute woodland creatures and fruit-scented lip balms.

There's just something so... fantastic about the thought of wearing a cape. They're classy and fun, warm and comfy, and kind of romantic, too. Of course, you should probably avoid clasping on a fur-lined Belle-inspired cape on a daily basis, but this plaid hooded cape ($270) from Kate Spade Saturday? It'll wear perfectly with both your casual and party attire.

A liquid that magically melts away stress? Sign us up! The pineapple-flavored Happy Molecule supplement ($33) contains solubilized gamma-aminobutyric acid and curcumin to calm your mind and relax your body at the end of a long day. Just mix two teaspoons with your favorite beverage (we happen to think it'd taste pretty good with spiced rum, but hot water or juice are probably better options).

The nights may be getting chilly, but that's no reason to hide your hot bod under baggy sweats every night. (We think your significant other would agree.) The Sleepover Knit Pajama ($52) from Victoria's Secret is super cozy, but the tailored top allows you to show off your figure - especially if you choose to mimic the model and make use of only one button. Bonus: Each set comes with a matching sleep mask!

A friend was recently telling us all about her new fitness band that tracks sleep patterns, expecting us to be mad impressed. We were like, "Psh, that's nothing - we own a mask that responds to our skin's circadian rhythms and erases wrinkles while we sleep! Not only that, it reduces under eye circles, hides dark spots, and increases collagen production." She hasn't talked to us since, but whatever - our skin looks awesome.

We don't know what the kids are wearing to prom these days (other than the sherbert-colored satin monstrosities we see girls wearing in photo shoots around various landmarks on prom night). Or should we say: we don't know what the cool kids are wearing to prom these days. If they are, in fact, going out to party in something as flirty, fun, and off the beaten path as this ASOS Embellished Collar Prom Dress ($114), then the kids may actually be alright.
