Wanna little insult with your breakfast? Thumb through Eat Me: The Food and Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin ($17) while you swirl your waffles into some maple syrup and enjoy the bluntness of the famed chef's writing. The Shopsin's owner dishes out some clever, interesting, and incredibly eloquent thoughts on food culture while still maintaining his famously grumpy attitude. Once you've read your fill, take a few of his recipes for a test drive. We know you're going to love the throwback High School Hot Turkey Sandwiches!

That dramatic kohl liner seemed like a good idea last night, but you woke up looking like Taylor Momsen circa 2010. Resist the urge to scrub, and instead apply a dollop of Dizzolv'it Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm ($36). Massage it into your dry skin until it turns into an oil, and then rinse with warm water. In addition to removing your makeup, it will soften and gently exfoliate your face - which is likely just what you need after a night out.

Ugh, this iron Flora Headboard & Bed Frame ($529-598) from Plum & Bow is way out of our current redo-the-bedroom budget, but isn't it gorgeous? If you've got the patience to stalk your local Craigslist furniture page for a few months to find a vintage iron headboard, and then the perseverance to put a few coats of spray paint on it, we bet you could get a similar look, but if you're not the DIY type, you probably better start saving your pennies!

Autumn fast approaches. That means all sorts of exciting things: Halloween parties, apple cider, pumpkin flavored treats, and hours and hours of raking. Wait, we actually hate that last one, which is why we've preemptively purchased the EZ Leaf Hauler ($40). The hauler is essentially a huge dustpan - rake the fallen leaves directly into the holder than pull it to the backyard or curb for a quicker disposal.

A gal can always dream... can't she? The Burberry Prorsum Painting Grainy Leather Bloomsbury Satchel ($3,195) is a handbag that we'd love to rock this fall season. It's simply stunning and so unique because each one is finished by hand. You surely won't see carbon copies of yourself throughout town when you sport this bag.

Want to ensure you get to retire in the poshest of convalescent homes? Make sure little Betty spends her formative years playing with this Doctor Play Set ($35) instead of that plastic burger grill she's currently obsessed with. In addition to raising the future of modern medicine, you'll get to feel all warm and fuzzy about not contributing to the 33 million tons of plastic waste Americans generate each year because each piece is carefully crafted from wood.

"I'm leaving you."
"That's okay. I figured this day would come."
"And I'm taking the dog."
"And the kids."
"Fine by me, honey."
"And I'm taking the J. Fold Gray Roadster Duffel Bag ($50)."
"What?! But that's my favorite bag, you can't take that."
"Sorry, Harold, but it's the perfect size for traveling with all my essentials. Goodbye."

You already knew chocolate could heal bad days, broken hearts, and mood swings, but did you know it can also work wonders on your dry lips? This Chocolate Lip Healer ($5) from No Miss Cosmetics uses coconut, jojoba, and grapeseed oils to pack in maximum moisture, and the cocoa butter leaves your lips tasting like a chocolate bar.

How much would you love to sink into a warm bubble bath with a glass of your favorite Pinot Noir? The
WaveHook Wine Glass Holder ($15) comes to the rescue with a dual suction cup wall mount.

Why do refrigerators get to have all the fun? As far as we're concerned, magnets should hang on every wall in the house. With the Magnetic Primer Kit ($20), you can transform an ordinary surface into something that can hold your magnetic poetry set. Just don't use it in your exercise room unless you want those buns of steel to get stuck to the wall.

As you begin to stock up on fall-scented candles, consider grabbing one of these Pineapple Cilantro Mini Tins ($9) as well. Tuck it in a drawer and give it a sniff on dark, chilly nights when you find yourself wishing you could turn back time to the warm, light-filled evenings of summer.

Trench coats aren't just for spring, especially when they're rocking a lovely navy blue and white polka dot pattern like this Capital Class Trench ($100) by Myrtlewood. Tie it on over a cute long-sleeve shift dress, a pair of goldenrod or fuchsia tights, and your newest pair of fall booties for a colorful and ridiculously cute fall look.

It's back to school time, so every big box store you shop at is probably stocked to the ceiling with cube shelving, but if you're not living in a 10x10-foot dorm room, you probably want to aim a little higher when it comes to your furniture's quality. Crate & Barrel is selling the Ditto Pacific Cube ($80), a sturdy and stackable table/storage frame that works just as well as an end table on its own as it does pushed up against a wall with a few of its friends to create a cubed bookshelf. The price is still on the affordable side, but the superiority of the cube can't be beat!

If you were born between July 23rd and August 22nd, then it's practically required that you purchase one of these Leo Wool Blankets ($248) from Klippan*. Sure, you may not put much stock in your daily horoscope, but you've got one of the coolest astrological signs, so you might as well show off your inner fierceness, or, we guess in the case of owning this blanket, keep it safely tucked away and warm until you need to unleash it.
*Of course, even if you're not a Leo, we think a blanket with lions on it would still look totally awesome draped over your couch.

You wanna know why this Face Planter ($78) is smiling so serenely? Because we've finally managed to keep something alive in it for more than 24 hours. We're just hoping that its smile won't turn upside down if our poor plant takes a nosedive into droopiness (because that will almost certainly happen as the week progresses)!
