We know the whole OMG BACON trend is getting old, but forgive us - we love the stuff, and just can't say no to the opportunity to pick bacon out of our teeth with Bacon Flavored Toothpicks ($4). At least give us some credit for passing up the bacon lube, OK?

This sophisticated bookcase ($252) looks like it belongs in a house in the Hamptons or Beverly Hills, and should therefore be used to hold fancy liquors and cocktail mixers or an array of eau de parfum bottles with extravagant spritzers. But what about books? Although bookcases often act as storage shelves, they're built to house a collection of amazing words - and your colorful covers are going to look great against this avocado colored piece of furniture.

This little tube of Davines Authentic Moisturizing Balm ($27) is pretty unassuming, but it does double duty on your hair and skin. You can use it in the shower as a deep conditioner (rub some into the ends of your hair, go about your shower business, and then rinse out) or on your face and body as a moisturizing cleanser. In short, keep it in the tub and wash up with it each morning. By the time you leave your bathroom, you'll feel soft and silky all over, and ready to take on the day.

Be sure to make this Nathalie du Pasquier Tent Dress ($90), part of the artist's collaboration with American Apparel, your go-to movie theater dress. With a dress this voluminous, it would be a shame not to take this opportunity to sneak a few extra treats (or an entire burrito) into the theater - maybe via a stealth fanny pack?

What's the best way to combat the shakes and headache you get after a night of drinking? By starting the next morning with another drink to take the edge off, of course! Okay, so it may not be the smartest way to deal with a hangover, but it is the tastiest, especially if you mix a drink with one of these Morning After Cocktail Mixes ($56) from Arrowhead Farms. Chose from sweet or spicy: the set will help you shake up a tasty Bellini or a savory Bloody Mary. Booze and trimmings are your responsibility!

Have you ever slept on a cloud? No, of course not, that's impossible. But you can get a little closer than you are currently by picking up a Capri Quilt Cover Set ($230).

Andalou's 1000 Roses Color + Correct ($20) combines everything we want in a CC cream: organic ingredients, flawless coverage, and UVA/UVB protection. It also contains things we didn't even know we wanted, like Alpine Rose stem cells, which provide cellular support while hydrating the skin. The cherry on top? It smells so good you may even be able to skip perfume.

If you carry Sriracha with you at all times in your purse... If you laugh in the face of a waitress who warns that a dish is "kind of spicy"... If a meal never tastes good unless your tongue feels like it's on fire... then you sound like a great candidate for the Hot Sauce of the Month Club ($203 for one year). Each month, you'll receive two bottles of top-of-the-line and rare hot sauces you'd have trouble discovering on our own. That's hot!

No need to spend your hard-earned money on one of those plastic pumpkins come Halloween, this Zucca Bag ($46) is ready for treats all year round. The gourd-inspired handbag isn't the most convenient design (so squash your desire to take it on any upside down roller coasters or throw it around willy-nilly), but it will add a dose of Cinderella-ish fantasy to the right outfit.

We love it when product names get all pun-y and clever on us, like this Aromaflage ($65) fragrance. It aims to help you blend into your surroundings - at least as far as bugs are concerned. Aromaflage is made with citrus fruit extracts and essential oils native to the Southeast Asian tropics, ingredients that also conveniently help trick bugs into thinking that you're not a proverbial giant walking steak. Notes of cedarwood and vanilla help round out this luscious, natural scent.

If you looked at this Boho Dress Scarf Holder ($15) and thought, "Oh, that's a dress I might want to wear," think again, From Justin to Kelly! This closet accessory is not for putting on your body, just like ties and scarves are only for putting around your neck, not your hips. Now that we've got that covered, we will say that we think this clever scarf holder is a great way to store your scarves in a space-saving way!

It's difficult not to feel like a bum when you have to ask strangers and local businesses to resuscitate your smartphone. "Brother, could you spare a wall socket for ten minutes?" Quit feeling a mooch and leave the house prepared. The Slate It's Bonus Time Battery Extender ($25) can recharge your dead phone - you can even continue to use the phone as it re-energizes. Talk about empowering!

On a recent trip to Lisa Vanderpump's PUMP Lounge in West Hollywood, one of our contributors spotted a server wearing the unisex 35 Black Garwood Watch ($159). Made of American Maple wood with an oil painted copper face, the 35 Black was inspired by a great night in Vegas. It's lightweight and looks fabulous on any wrist. What's more, the server said to use code JMONTANA for a 15% discount. With those savings and free shipping, this watch is an affordable way to stay ahead of the fashion curve and make all of your friends jealous.

It ain't easy finding a lip gloss/cheek stain that provides good coverage of both. Usually, it's kinda gooey, sticky, and either way too pigmented, or not pigmented enough. But we've got nothing bad to say about Shu Uemura's Tint in Gelato ($28). The colors are trendy and bright, and the tint itself glides onto your lips and cheeks without leaving behind that tacky, never dry feeling. It's also fragrance-free and pretty darn long-lasting!

This peony-scented bubble bath ($34) uses olive and avocado oil to make your skin ridiculously soft. Plus, it made Oprah's All Time Favorite Things list in 2011, so you know it has to be good. Our only fear is that it looks a lot like a bottle of wine - we'll have to make sure we don't accidentally mistake it for the pinot grigio that's always by our side during bathtime.
