Haven't you always wished you could snag Barbie's wardrobe? Okay, so maybe not Pregnant Midge's maternity wrap or McDonald's Barbie's big red apron, but those fabulous party dresses of hers probably had your imagination running rampant. This Erin Fetherson Lucille Gown ($695) is a gorgeous grown-up take on those glam childhood fashion fantasies, and you don't have to be a 39FF to wear it.

We were vacuuming the floors recently and realized the path from the front door to the bar cart is significantly more worn than the rest of the carpet. Clearly we need to find a stress reliever that doesn't involve tequila - we'll start with this Calm Down Soy Wax Candle ($13). As it burns, it releases eucalyptus oil to promote relaxation. Plus, it won't make us pass out and wake up hours later with a pounding headache.

Camo created to help hunters shoot and kill furry animals? Not for us. Camo created to hide skin imperfections? Hell yes. This Camouflage Cream Palette ($38) has gotten rave reviews, and for good reason: it's feather-light, blends like a dream, and effectively masks the fact that we wake up with huge, dark circles under our eyes more often than we'd like to admit.

The only thing your mobile device will be missing when placed in this Take a Seat Cell Phone Holder ($13) is a miniature Turkish Angora cat. After all, that pile of microchips and plastic might as well have an evil genius-worthy place to relax while it plots the continued domination of your world.

How about a nice little tweed number for fall? And no, we're not talking about the sleek, covered-up-but-sexy kind of little tweed number, we're talking about this NEUW Juju Dress ($109), with its skinny straps, short hemline, and pronounced bust detail. You should, of course, pair it with a proper schoolboy blazer, but be prepared to wow when the temp calls for bare shoulders.

If you're heading to the capital of haute couture, you won't want to be seen with frayed seams or stray threads. This Metropolitan Paris Travel Sewing Kit ($18) contains everything you need for a quick repair in a chic little coin purse printed with a vintage map of the City of Lights.

You may not be a professional makeup artist, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have easy access to your tools while getting ready! Stash your combs, brushes, clips, and tweezers in this Makeup Belt ($33) and then throw it over your shoulder or around your waist - everything you need will be easily accessible, and you won't wake up the entire household as you tear apart the bathroom looking for your kabuki brush.

Home just seems so ... depressing after you've spent a week playing at the beach. Combat those post-vacation blues by mixing yourself a Mai Tai and relaxing in the bath with this handmade Surf & Sand Olive Oil Soap ($8). It looks like a little slice of paradise, and it'll infuse your skin with some much needed moisture after all that time you spent outside under the sun.

We can't remember the last time we cracked open a cookbook - these days, we do a quick search on Google or Pinterest when we get the hankering to cook or bake something delicious. However, there's something to be said for hard copies - what if the internet goes out when you're halfway through mixing up a batch of brown butter cookies? Sugar Paper's Grey Recipe Binder ($60) is perfect for storing all of your recipe print outs: it's divided into seven categories for easy browsing, and comes pre-filled with thirty-five 8.5x11-inch clear plastic sleeves. (We also love the pretty gold hardware and polka dotted lining!)

These pretty pumps from Seychelles ($128) are perfect for the transition from late summer to early fall. It's still warm enough outside that the peep-toes and heel cutouts won't make your feet freeze, but the brown, cream, and black color scheme is decidedly autumnal. (Also, we are powerless before any article of clothing that gives off a sexy librarian vibe.)

We're never taking this Lip + Lash Duo ($39) out of our bags. One end contains SHINE Ultra Lip Gloss, and the other is filled with extension mascara, meaning that in case of a makeup emergency, we can make ourselves look presentable in mere seconds.

Remember Ambrosia? That fruity, custardy concoction someone unfailingly brought to every family picnic of your childhood? So do the kids over at Found Goods Market, who decided to make a tribute to it with this Homestead Ambrosia Tea Tin Candle ($28). Housed in a lovely copper canister, this fills your room with a tempting blend of orange, coconut, and grapefruit.

You've been eating well all week, but now it's Friday and you'd commit felonies for a cold beer and juicy cheeseburger. This bubble bath ($16) was created for such occasions: the tangerine fragrance is designed to curb cravings, and it contains horse chestnut extract to help improve circulation and reduce cellulite. Now you just have to force yourself to stay in the tub until all of the burger joints in town have closed for the night.

We should be drinking over two liters of it a day - a benchmark most of us sadly miss. Maybe these vintage-inspired Artland Upcycled Spring Water Highball Glasses ($42) will inspire us to toss back a bit more H2O before we dry up into shriveled husks.

This stretchy elephant belt ($95) is such an easy way to add visual interest to an outfit. Pair it with a basic sheath dress or throw it over a cardigan to make your outfit really pop. Just go easy on the jewelry - let the golden pachyderms be the stars!
