Don't be fooled by the simple name of Jimmy Choo's first fragrance for guys. Man ($82) is surprisingly complex - notes of lavender and melon are combined with pink pepper, pineapple, suede, and patchouli to great effect. If you plan on giving it to him as a gift, make sure there's nobody else around: you won't be able to keep your hands (and various other body parts) off of him once you get a whiff.

Imagine you lived a world without ketchup and someone finally set a plate of fries in front of you, drizzled with an ambrosial red revelation. The condiment you're about to meet is going to have about the same mind-blowing impact. Mike's Hot Honey ($11) is a masterpiece of flavor, combining sweetness and heat with a touch of vinegary tartness. You'll want it on your biscuits. You'll crave it on your chicken. You'll wonder how you possibly survived dinner without it.

To some extent, your makeup is only as good as the tools with which you apply it. We think quality brushes are worth splurging on, and we're loving this Trish McEvoy set ($148). Seven essential face and eye brushes are housed in a pretty little clutch, which has enough room to hold few extra beauty items, plus your debit card and ID.

Clogs are cool. Don't believe us? Banish visions of tulip-toting Dutch girls from your mind, and focus instead on these No.6 Buckle Boots ($370). Yes, that's a classic clog heel. It just happens to be supporting a seriously stylish motorcycle-themed upper.

Created by models to give you that fresh-faced glow you often see on the catwalk, this Nudestix Eye Pencil ($24) isn't meant to be the star of your makeup look. Rather, it works behind the scenes to perfectly blend your shadow and keep the delicate skin around your eyes looking youthful and radiant. Use the pencil end to highlight, then flip it over and use the other end to blend.

Remember books? Those quaint little bundles of paper capable of transporting us to worlds far more interesting than our own? If you still have an archaic shelf or two kicking around, lovingly label your favorites with these Molly Hatch Owl Bookplates ($6). We suspect they'd also look peachy slapped on the back of your Kindle.

This aromatherapy spray ($18) combines rose geranium, clary sage, lavender, bergamot, and frankincense oils to help calm that monthly urge to punch everyone in the throat. And if it fails, you can always just throw the bottle at them.

From blow drying to straightening, curling, and teasing, your hair takes quite a beating. Your impressive volume and pretty waves mean nothing if your hair is dull and dry, so make sure you pamper it from time to time. We love Oribe's Gold Lust Transformative Masque ($62) - use it once a week to leave your hair feeling soft, shiny, and healthy.

Animals make everything cuter. How much more adorable is that beat-up couch with a lazy cat sleeping on it? And your shaggy lawn looks downright sweet with a few bunnies frolicking around it. So just think what this Party Animal Coaster Set ($8) will do for your weekend gatherings, with its array of heart-melting turtles and unicorns offering you advice or encouragement on your drink consumption habits.

Admit it: you've always wanted a pair of shiny pants. But when it comes to shimmery bottoms, balance is key. Too much shine and you'll look like a backup dancer for ABBA. Too little, and you might as well stay home. These 1969 Coated Always Skinny Jeans ($80) strike the perfect note between, with just enough glow to make you feel like an incognito rock star.

Matching your shoes to your bag? Hell-to-the-no. Matching your lips to your nails? Go for it! This set from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics ($35, on sale) contains a pretty peach/beige gloss and polish, and it also comes with a clear carrying bag, lip brush, and collectible trading card featuring a drag queen. (If we're being honest, we may be more excited about the drag queen trading card than the makeup!)
