Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation
High-tech makeup that delivers
I love the way this lightweight foundation makes my skin look and feel. Full of soothing aloe vera, it moisturizes while smoothing out all those little imperfections. No wonder it’s so highly rated. The only downer: It doesn’t provide sun protection. So be sure to use some underneath.

Logitech UE Mobile Boombox
Small wireless speakers with big sound
One of these colorful cuties will turn your iPhone into a great-sounding boom box. And with 10 hours of battery life, there’s no need to recharge in the middle of a party (at least not my parties!). Plus, you can pair it with more than one phone and easily switch back and forth. Available in five cool colors.

Chemex Glass Coffeemaker
A plastic-free coffeemaker that won’t leach harmful chemicals
I can’t do without my morning coffee. But I can skip the residues of BPA and other chemicals that can leach from plastic products, especially when exposed to heat. That’s why I like this simple, back-to-basics all-glass coffeemaker. It’s cheap, it works, and the coffee tastes amazing.

Spanx Active Shaping Compression Knee Pant
Workout wear that gives you instant results
I adore these exercise pants for various reasons: They’re incredibly comfortable, they wick away sweat and they look new through dozens of washings. And it doesn’t hurt that they suck in my muffin top and make me look like I’ve been working out even more than I have. Also available in shorts and full length.
