Evergreen - Broods

The New Zealand duo that is Broods is made up of brother and sister Georgia and Caleb Nott, which makes sense, considering their band name. Something else that might strike you, after hearing their debut album Evergreen ($8), is how familiar the slightly haunting, dreamy sound is to another New Zealand musician (possibly the only other one you can name) - Lorde. Both artists use the same producer, but in case Lorde isn't your thing, Broods is decidedly more poppy, danceable, and decidedly less angst-y.

Fernando Pensato Olive Oil with 24k Gold Flakes

It's the Goldschl├Ąger of condiments: Fernando Pensato's Olive Oil with 24k Gold Flakes ($60). And sorry, but you won't taste the shiny stuff. Gold, while edible, is completely flavorless. But what it lacks in savor it more than makes up in sheer wow factor. Use it to put some seriously impressive bling onto your bruschetta.

Velocity Top

No wonder this is called the Velocity Top ($136) - it's form-fitting and sleek, which will make you very aerodynamic and give you the ability to cut through crowds with amazing deftness and speed. The back is cut out in an array of dynamic shapes (mimicking your manic zigzagging), giving your bod some much needed breathing space.

Bonica Pouches

Affordable, adorable, and completely multi-purpose, you'll want to grab a few Bonica Pouches ($12) for all of your stuff-stashing needs. Use one to hold your makeup when you travel, grab another for pens, pencils, and other office miscellany, and don't forget to order a few to give as gifts this holiday season. The plaid, denim, and tartan prints make them festive packaging - a dozen cellophane-wrapped sugar cookies should easily fit inside!

feeLING Protected Body Hydrator

There's only so much water you can drink in a day to armor yourself against the dry air. We mean, technically, you can drink quite a lot, but it's always at the expense of your bladder. Get your 8 to 10 cups in and then turn to the feeLING Protected Body Hydrator ($35). It's designed to be rubbed into the skin and fortify it with hyaluronic acid, rose water, and essential oils that lock in hydration and guard against redness and dry patches. The scent should also have a calming effect on your forever-feeling-stressed mind.

Ankle Strap Point

How about these gorgeous two-toned shoes, eh? The Mode Collective's Ankle Strap Point heels ($230) in navy and ox blood are not only sexy as hell, they're also unique and exquisitely crafted. We suppose they're technically office appropriate, but you really shouldn't wear them on a day when you need people to pay attention what you're saying instead of just wondering where you got your shoes.

Charlotte Tilbury The Bombshell Set

Sometimes you need a whole makeover. Fast. You need a lipliner that matches a lipstick and an eyeshadow that makes sense with the whole thing. That's why we love makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury's new line at Nordstrom; it's categorized into looks that range from dewy and fresh to tough and intimidating and come in prepackaged, coordinating sets containing mascara, eyeshadow, lip gloss, and more. We're feeling The Bombshell Set ($225) - it's retro-chic and a little dark and mysterious for fall and winter.

Full disclosure: Outblush received a free sample of this product.

Don't Quit Your Daydream Pillow

Especially if it means you can play hooky for the morning and head into work late after spending a hour or two lounging in bed with a cup of coffee and your thoughts of a tropical vacation. Or an episode of Castle on your iPad.

Gummi Bear Stud Earrings

We don't get it. Other adults are always talking about candy and cakes being "much too sweet" for their tastes... say what? More for us, then, and we'll proudly show off our allegiance to sugar by wearing a pair of Gummi Bear Stud Earrings ($25). Sure, we know candy is bad for us... but it's oh-so-good, and since these earrings are made of resin and not sugar, we'll call today a victory in self-control (so long as we avoid eating any more Halloween candy).

It's alllll yours, so make sure your friends know that it's one closet item they're not allowed to borrow. In fact, you best keep the Mine Jean Clutch ($1,295) from Edie Parker under lock and key when you're not carrying it. You wouldn't want someone else snagging it and claiming that it's theirs!

Atelier Flatware

Still using that extra set of flatware your mom gave you when you first moved out? It's certainly done its job, but now that you're a grown-up, you should consider investing in a new, more aesthetically pleasing set (not that we have anything against '80s floral handles, per se). The Atelier Flatware ($98, set of 5) is most definitely an investment, but just look at that gorgeous color! We have a feeling it will serve you well until your own kiddo moves out and needs a starter set of flatware.
