We're sure that at this point you already have a number of keratin and argan oil-infused hair serums in your bathroom, but do you have any products that combine the two? If not, we recommend checking out Pink Addiction ($25). The keratin and argan work together to pack quite a punch - distribute a couple pumps through damp hair and blow dry to reveal super healthy-looking locks, even if your hair is brittle and damaged.

Halloween isn't exactly a Hallmark holiday, but that won't stop us from trying our damndest to make it one. Start the spookiest day of the year on the right foot by leaving this handmade card ($4) on the pillow of your cherished (if not slightly weird) significant other.

We sorta wish that this Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Caring Cooler ($35) came with four bottles of vino already packed inside of it, but that's getting a little greedy, isn't it? We suppose we're just happy to have a cute place to stash our wine as we scramble to enjoy every last iota of summer by packing up the car and heading out to the beach... and the park... and basically everywhere that's not an office cubicle! Even cooler (ha!) than coming stocked with wine is the fact that each purchase of a cooler supports Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign.

If you haven't yet abandoned all of your other lip colors to try Shiseido's Lacquer Rouge ($25), then you're missing out. The long wear lipstick/gloss goes on smooth and thick (but doesn't leave you feeling like you've got plastic lips!) and stays put for hours longer than your old stuff. We're currently in love with Nocturne, a berry-to-reddish shade that's perfect for fall.

This Gola T-Shirt Dress ($225) pays homage to so many aspects of the beach - its colors range from the gold of the sand to the blue of deepest ocean, and its wide stripes echo the design of beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. The translucent garment is meant to be worn over a swimming suit, but unfortunately the end of summer is in sight. Wait... so what? Stock up for next year or, better yet, just wear it around the house.

We've all been there. Those little jewelry stands in the shape of trees look so cute when you first pick them up from Target, but then you watch your collection of baubles expand beyond what those flimsy little branches can hold. Step up your arboreal-themed display game with the Manzanita Wall Jewelry Branch ($99). Use it to hang your necklaces and bracelets or leave the branches bare for a unique piece of wall decor!

We're hoping these pretty floral liners ($5) will help combat the depression we feel upon finishing the last bite of a cupcake. We doubt it'll work - because really, the only cure for lack of cupcakes is eating more cupcakes - but at least they'll look really pretty before we demolish them!

With not much in the way of bells, whistles, frills, or complicated buttons, the 1Face Charity Watch ($40) does what it needs to do: it tells the time. But when you purchase one, it does way more than remind you that you've got three more hours until you get to leave work for the day. Each purchase helps the 1Face company support efforts to relieve suffering due to hunger, environmental damages, AIDS, cancer, lack of access to water and education, and animal abandonment. You can pick your favorite cause and see just how your money is helping out, or, if you purchase the Touchscreen watch, you'll be aiding each cause listed on the 1Face website.

Coloring your hair at home always seems like a great idea, but more often than not you wind up having to pay a professional big bucks to fix it anyway. This Henna Gold Highlighting Shampoo ($7) is an inexpensive and low-risk way to bring out your highlights naturally - the henna coats your strands and catches the light to make your hair look brighter and shinier without requiring a walk of shame to your stylist the next day.

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.
