Our curling iron collection is starting to rival the shoe horde in our closet - we've got irons and wands in just about every shape and size imaginable, to the point where we're running out of space to house them all. We love that T3's new Whirl Trio ($230) requires only one base to achieve a number of looks - just swap out the barrel to achieve tight curls, loose waves, and everything in between. You'll look damn fine, in addition to saving precious bathroom real estate!

Buck up a bad day. Make a good day even better. Whatever sort of day you find yourself in, we guarantee that eating cake will improve it, especially if you have yours with a big glass of Merlot and a nap.
Eat Cake Handy Tote ($10)

We love when products are backed up by clinical results. For instance, in a recent study, this eye primer ($36) immediately reduced the appearance of fine lines in 93% of users. In addition to its ability to smooth the skin around and under your eyes, it keeps your eye shadow in place all day and also camouflages dark under eye circles. The only question we're left with is, "How fast does it ship?"

Hopefully it's not quite cold enough yet where you live to necessitate plunking this Westerlind Hand Knit Hat ($75) over your coif, but it's good to be prepared, right? The chunky knit hat will keep your ears toasty warm once the freezing weather descends... but for all of our sakes, we're hoping that day is still a good few weeks away!

Sure, we all go gaga over uniquely scented candles with fancy (and usually food-related) names like "plum pudding pie" or "butterscotch cookie," but when it comes down to it, few tried and true scents are worth burning in our homes. This Lavender Candle ($30) is bedside bliss. The essential oil used in the candle is grown in the mountains of New Zealand and it provides an indulgent scent that's warm, inviting, calming, and familiar. You'll want it casting a flickering glow over your Kindle as you wind down before bed each night.

Putting the final touches on your Halloween duds before the big day? Don't forget to nail the ever important small details - your makeup should be spot on, and it will be with a few coats of Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Slayer ($21) gracing your lips. It's perfectly pigmented to give you a deathly black pucker. You'll make one fantastic-looking goth girl/black-and-white film star/vampire!

Frosty nights mean saying goodbye to fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes for another year. But before you resign yourself to mealy texture and mediocre caprese, pick up a jar of this Heirloom Tomato Jam ($14). It captures and concentrates that summer flavor into a rich, spicy condiment you can use to brighten up your snacks all winter long.

Maybe these Renaissance Pressed Glass Amethyst Goblets ($40, set of 4) won't do a great job of focusing aromatics or showing off legs. But when it comes to drinking wine like the laird of the manor, they can't be beat. Show them off to perfection with a roasted joint and a few oversized hunting dogs.

Okay, Adika Kibur's Pearl Spray Statement Necklace ($105) resembles some weird sea anemone... or a bunch of fish eggs... wrapped tenderly in lavender ribbon. Maybe you don't think that's what you want your newest piece of jewelry to look like, but we guarantee that you'll be the most popular gal at the aquarium.

Is it the finest release of the franchise so far? The debate continues to rage. But no one is arguing that X-Men: Days of Future Past ($30) wasn't one seriously badass piece of action filmmaking. If that's not enough to make you want to own it, we have two very important words for you: Wolverine's bum. We think that's worth seeing in high-definition.

Everyone can use a helping hand when it comes to making good financial decisions, but a financial adviser? Let's just say that seeing one isn't in the current budget! This Acorns App (Free), however, costs you nothing to download and can end up helping you meet some of your projected financial goals. It offers an easy roundup program - when you pay for daily items, like gas, groceries, lattes, etc., it'll round up your payment to the nearest dollar so you can invest the extra change into low-risk ETFs.

You can also add and withdraw funds funds quickly and easily, and without leaving any money behind in fees.

Do you look at your Instagram shots and think, "Damn, I'm good!" Maybe it's time to turn that smartphone snapping talent into cold hard cash.

Just because your cat seems to have taken up a second career as a couch warmer doesn't mean he no longer needs exercise. It just might take a little more effort to entice him to get his bulk in motion. Help him overcome inertia the easy way with this Fling-Ama-String ($30) cat toy. Hang it from a nearby door knob, flip it on, and it'll start whipping a silky blue cord around in a way guaranteed to get your kitty out of his habitual sloth.

We're seeing a lot of holographic and heat-sensitive materials being used on high end lines all of a sudden - it's '90s-era tricks all over again, except they're being used on gorgeously designed purses like Rebecca Minkoff's Mini Gramercy Satchel ($425) instead of coffee mugs and oversized tees. We say that's a solid step up.

We'd already think these Personalized Map Coasters ($35) were seriously cool with their lacquered snapshots of vintage cartography. But makers The Painted Lily take things up a notch, letting you choose the city or state you'd like to see collecting condensation under your lager. Will you opt for your hometown or celebrate your new digs? Perhaps you'll indulge your secret fascination with Delaware. The possibilities are endless.
