  3. THRIVE WINES

    “I have a new evening routine: When I get home, I unplug, and then I unwind by pouring myself a glass of Thrive Wines Sauvignon Blanc and hopping in the bath. There’s
    something about the crisp, refreshing taste of the California white plus the relaxing bath that really hits the spot. It’s all about balance, right?” —Molly Kalinsky, manager, brand
    partnerships & marketing

  2. Last Line Piercing
  3. THE LAST LINE

    “If ever you have doubts about adding a piercing to your ear, click over to The Last Line designer Shelley Sanders’s Instagram and watch one of her time-lapse videos. If that doesn’t sell you, TLL’s collection of rainbow gemstone huggies, Art Deco drops, and
    customizable charm hoops—all sold direct-to-consumer, so no markups—will. TLL has also just launched a collection of birthstone tennis bracelets that’s got me rethinking my Mother’s
    Day dream (fourteen-karat gold + tanzanite > brunch, right?).” —Kate Wolfson, executive editor

  2. BELLA DAHL GIRL Collection
  3. Bella Dahl

    “I sound like every proud mama: Watching my daughter, Cate, find her voice is the most exciting, gratifying, beautiful thing. So much of her expression is made through her
    clothing. She loves color, fresh patterns, and feminine cuts. I was over the moon when I learned that Bella Dahl—a modern women’s line that I have long loved—launched a collection
    for little girls. The comfortable pieces are an extension of Cate’s free-spiritedness—and a wink to the incredible woman she is becoming.” —Kim Kreuzberger, chief revenue officer

  2. Better Bras
  3. Better Bras

    “I have been evangelizing about True & Co’s True Body bras to anyone who will listen. I’ve never been able to find a cup bra that fits well and lasts like these. I love
    the V-neck and scoop-neck lift bras, which can double as lightweight crop tops in hot weather.”
    —Liz Martindale, senior graphic designer

    best friends.” —Jenny Westerhoff, photo editor

  3. VITAL FARMS GHEE

    “I take my butter seriously. So I feel 100 percent confident when I say that Vital Farms makes the best clarified butter there is. This glorious ghee has a high smoke point,
    is made from the milk of pasture-raised cows, and is fantastic with everything—even a little dollop in morning coffee.” —Stacey Lindsay, articles editor

  3. MANHATTAN BEACH POST

    “I love driving down to Manhattan Beach with friends on the weekends to walk along the pier, visit all the shops, and eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Manhattan Beach Post. It has such a cool, relaxed vibe, and the staff is so enthusiastic. The one thing I cannot leave without ordering is the Cheddar milk biscuits. Absolutely ridiculous. The best biscuits ever.” —Jamie Sy-Quia, production designer

  2. MASSAGE BOTANICA
  3. MASSAGE BOTANICA

    “Tucked away from the hustle of West Hollywood is Massage Botanica, a massage studio that feels like you’re in a rain forest. The single treatment room is full-on Zen.
    There’s lots of greenery and calming aromatherapy. Plus Ryan, the massage therapist, is incredible. He and I chatted about my lifestyle and tension areas before he gave me the firmest, most amazing massage. And since parking and scheduling are so easy, I love to buy Massage Botanica gift cards for my friends.” —Emma Elliott, graphic designer

  2. SHAP HOUSE Sweat lodge
  3. SHAPE HOUSE

    “When I explained my sweat session to my hometown friend—you spend sixty minutes wrapped like a burrito and lying in an infrared heated bed—she said it was the most LA thing she’d ever heard. I admit that it sounds pretty wacky. But since my first visit to Shape House, it’s been a staple in my weekly routine. I swear my skin looks clearer, and I’m sleeping better.” —Peter Marcos, office manager

  2. GOOPGLOW PEEL PADS
  3. GOOPGLOW OVERNIGHT PEEL

    “I am a huge believer in the power of exfoliation to transform your skin. I am totally obsessed with the GOOPGLOW 15% Glycolic Overnight Glow Peel. I use it once a week before bed, and I wake up
    to the smoothest, glowiest skin I’ve ever had.” —Erin Cotter, SVP of beauty

  2. HOME REMEDIES BY XUAN JULIANA WANG
  3. HOME REMEDIES

    “My brilliant friend Juliana wrote this book of short stories chronicling what it means to be Chinese. While she’s Chinese American, the book doesn’t focus on liminality but dives straight into the allure of modern China as Juliana experienced it: sexy and mischievous but told plainly without exoticization. It’s an important point of view in American literature—and we need more voices like hers for people like me (and you and you!).” —Diana Ryu, director of content operations

  2. HULU THE ACT
  3. THE ACT

    “I’d heard the story of Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose Blanchard many times—on podcasts, on BuzzFeed, and in a recent documentary—so I wasn’t expecting much from the new miniseries The Act. However,

    I was pleasantly surprised by Hulu’s fictionalized take on the tragic lives of this mother-daughter pair. The show’s nuanced dive into the traumas of poverty, sexuality, and mental illness has me hooked. Where I once knew exactly how I felt about these two women, Patricia Arquette’s and Joey King’s performances have left me—enjoyably—confused by the complexity of relationships and deep, dysfunctional, even violent love.” —Erin Comerford, web producer
