We predict that the Unchartered Crossbody ($128) will quickly become one with your body. You won't ever forget to bring your purse, because your purse will always be with you, like your fingerprints. It's the perfect size for carrying essentials, and the adjustable long leather strap, metal closure, and secret zip pocket will keep everything secure. Why would you ever part from it?

Seriously. If you don't have a Ewok pup ($25) to your Princess Leia this Halloween, you may as well stay home!

A chemical peel at a salon can set you back hundreds of bucks, plus you have to leave your house and make small talk with strangers. Ugh. This Lemon Strip Flash Peel ($48), on the other hand, is relatively inexpensive, doesn't require you to change out of your pajamas, and makes your skin prettier in just ten minutes. Apply to clean skin, rinse off, and follow with moisturizer. So easy! Just make sure to apply sunscreen if you're heading outdoors afterward.

You'd be hard-pressed to come up with two things more summery than floral prints and the color white. Luckily, you can don the Printed Crepe Dress ($80) without looking out of season. The inky, black flourishes that make up the stems and leaves are feminine while lending to the more muted tones that (worn with a pair of stockings to keep out the chill) make this an excellent addition to any autumnal wardrobe.

From the adorable lip-shaped applicator to the never-sticky texture, this YSL limited edition trio ($64) is the ultimate lip gloss triumvirate. (What? We got a word of the day calendar for Christmas last year.) Wear them alone or layer over your favorite fall lipsticks to add a bit of shimmer and shine.

The idea of housing your phone in America's favorite fries isn't enough to convince you to buy this Moschino iPhone Case ($85)? What if we told you Mindy Kaling has been spotted using it? Fine. If your life goals don't involve being more like Mindy, then we can't reason with you.

LOFT's Faux Leather Trim Quilted Dress ($80) is one of the prettiest cooler weather dresses we've seen. It's quilted - for "warmth" - and lined with faux leather accents - for seasonally appropriate edge. But in case you think winter is the time for severe looks, this dress softens things up with its fun A-line skirt. You can even lighten things up even more with a colorful (and possibly sparkly) belt.

Applying fake lashes is hard enough - don't complicate it further by using your fingers to apply your false fringe. Instead, use Bourjois' Faux and Fabulous Lash Applicator ($9). Pick the lashes up with the tweezers, and use the angled tip to achieve perfect placement every time!

The days until your office Halloween party are few, but the hours you need to spend in the kitchen whipping up some sort of fall-themed treat seem endless. Ain't nobody got time for that! Phone it in and order a tin of Goblin's Grub Popcorn ($50-60). Sure it's pricey, but it comes filled to the brim with three types of festive popcorn: white chocolate with candy corn, chocolate with gummy worms, and caramel apple. We doubt your co-workers will even notice that there's one less plate of pumpkin spice cookies on the buffet table.

Sure, you've got an overwhelming amount of new fall series to wade through when you relax on the couch each night, but sometimes you just want to settle in with a sappy BBC show. There's something so comforting in the accents and formality, isn't there? If you haven't yet seen Call the Midwife, now's your chance. Start with season one ($27) and we swear, you'll be hooked on it and blubbering like a new babe 20 minutes into the first heartwarming episode. Already a fan? Give the whole series a re-watch before season 4 hits the US; you'll still blubber like a babe through each scene!

Good news - apparently turning your frown upside down is as easy as spritzing your body and surroundings with this Energy Shifting Spray ($11). We can't wait to see our boss's face when we stand up and start drenching the conference room during the next super boring staff meeting.

No, thank you, hand chains. And no thank you, belly chains and body chains. We'll keep the decorative links far away from our torsos, and instead let them adorn our lobes with the fantastic Carica Earring ($60) from SeaworthyPDX. The bronze pieces of the earrings are as simple as can be, but their chain-link twist makes them edgy (and completely irresistible).

If you're still carrying around a single-lens reflex camera, this boxy bag ($131) from Australian label LoveHate will be a perfect fit. If the only camera you use is your phone, don't worry - that will fit too, along with a couple boxes of macarons and a Rubik's Cube.

Our kids can make a card cute with smudges of chocolate and a pencil scribble. We grown-ups have to work harder at it, which is why we'll be keeping this Crumbs Letterpressed DIY Card Set ($12) for ourselves. Stuffed with offcuts and card samples with quirky critters, clever typography, and eye-catching designs, each pack contains enough goodies to put together a pair of totally unique greetings.

Matte finish nail polish is beyond hot right now, but stocking up on a whole new array of shine-free shades is a quick way to blow your beauty budget. Pick up this quick-drying Julep Matte Top Coat ($14) instead to tone down your existing cabinet of colors. And unlike other trendy finishes, this one is built to last.
