1.A pair of wireless earbuds for wishing cumbersome headphones adieu in favor of a high-quality, hands-free listening experience — without watching your savings plummet at the Apple store.
2.A glittery skirt with a mesh overlay that'll make you sparkle no matter how late you woke up — including when you wear it with your fave sweatshirt. All this without dimming your bank account? Bless.
3.A Revlon cream eyeshadow so you can deliver a bold, pigmented shade to your lids with a cream formula that's so darn rich it'll only take a dab of your finger — something we previously thought only happened after visiting the aisles of Sephora. NO LONGER.
4.A pack of crystal word barrettes to hop on one of this season's biggest, and usually pricy, trends without splurging on designer accessories (Dior...one day). People won't be able to tell the difference, I PROMISE.
5.A pair of copper tongue scrapers, because this'll make getting rid of bacteria and odored breath suddenly feel fancy, instead of icky. Just don't look at your sink.
6.A bottle of Radha rosehip oil for creating a seemingly luxe routine by sticking to this one-and-done serum that delivers all the results of designer skincare: it tackles redness, scarring, pimples, and everything in-between. Reviewers say they've ditched $$$ labels and now have ✨glowing✨, healing skin!
7.A pair of low-heeled pumps that'll ~elevate~ your outfits with (wait for it) comfy heels. Reviewers swear they can walk allll day in these without so much as a peep from their piggies — aka if you don't want to invest in similar styles like Everlane's famous "day heel", these'll work (and look!) just as well.
8.A teeth-whitening pen, because there's a lot to smile about when your pearly whites are extra brilliant — and when you save hard-earned cash. Plus, its soft-bristle brush is easier to use on uneven teeth than strips, thanks to its 360° application.
9.A faux fur throw blanket so you can take a major step forward toward redecorating the house like you always talk about. Step one: toss on couch. That's it. Your living room is now worthy of a visit from Bobby Berk.
10.A beaded mock-neck blouse that'll be a heck of a lot more sophisticated (and practical!) than your usual tank tops — now the jeans you've been wearing since Monday (don't lie) will feel a little more elegant.
11.A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo, because this'll brighten your hair so it looks MUCH blonder in just one to three minutes. Meaning: you get to maintain (for most reviewers, platinum!) blonde tresses all the time without a trip to the pricey salon.
12.A marble-patterned aroma diffuser for turning your home into a spa-like oasis and having sophisticated decor. Plus, you'll probably use it forever — prepare to feel pampered all 360 days a year while this releases soothing aromas.
13.A Vivienne Sabó mascara to join the many brand snobs now converted into believers in lower-priced mascaras. It's a one-stop journey to thick, fanned lashes in just a bat of your eye — aka all the results you expect from high-end labels, just without the scary spending.
14.An attachable wine aerator that'll transform cheap wine into the fanciest-tasting adult juice you've ever had. How? It infuses oxygen to release the vino's ~aromas~ and bolden the taste right out of the bottle — so basically your leftover pizza is about to get a very upscale pairing.
15.A pair of gold-plated hoop earrings, because these'll go with everything and make chicly accessorizing incredibly easy. Tl;dr: you can wear these all the time and still look polished and on-trend every day.
16.A one-step hair dryer and styling brush so your wrist can take a BREAK when you straighten your hair in a more timely manner. Enter this bb with three temperature settings, two speeds, and ionic bristles to evenly distribute its straightening power — now your tresses will be dry AND blowout-worthy without any hair-raising bills.
17.A pair of faux leather leggings that'll help you ~kick up~ your wardrobe's sophistication more than your regular jeans ever could.
18.A portable personal blender, because this'll not only *look* super fancy thanks to its stylish design, but also let you make delicious smoothies on-the-go. All you have to do is fill it before running out the door. AND it saves you money when you don't buy $7 smoothies every day?! We are living in the year 3000.
19.A soft, cooling mattress topper for feeling like you're on cloud nine the minute you hit the bed — especially when you look back on its ☁️ dreamy prices ☁️. Basically for the price of your week's lunches, you just majorly upgraded your creaky mattress into your own personal oasis. AND it's 100% cotton, so hot sleepers can stay cool.
20.A sophisticated slipcover to transform old, worn-out furniture into your new favorite statement piece by simply covering it with this. You just saved yourself HUNDREDS of dollars by not buying a new couch, my friend. Guess who can't tell the difference: everyone.
21.A Jacob & Eli eyeshadow palette with 18 super pigmented nude shades so you realize you don't need to drop $100 to achieve the perfect smokey eye. Though your skills may lead people to believe you did.
22.A pair of high-waisted leggings that people s-w-e-a-r look and work just as well (if not better!) than pricier brands like Lululemon. They'll keep you cool during high-intensity workouts (hello, moisture-wicking fabric), give you somewhere to keep your phone while playing music, and save you money so you can keep dropping $$$ on reserving spin classes.
23.A silky scrunchy to nix bad hair days, keep your updos crease-free, and most importantly look stylish on your wrist. Regular hair ties aren't worthy of your high-end taste.
24.A Nügg lip treatment set for kissing dry, chapped lips goodbye for the rest of the year. One balm exfoliates and smooths with cocoa butter, jojoba oil, and sugar granules, while the other acts as a mask with coconut oil, shea butter, and licorice root. These two easy steps > overpriced spas.
25.A trendy reusable shopping bag so you can rely on this to look 100% more sophisticated than toting around plastic grocery bags. They just don't go with your outfit.
26.A faux shearling coat that'll look just like all the similar fuzzy jackets I almost guarantee you've seen in just about every expensive store you've been to recently. Now you won't have to spend all your hard-earned cash on a trend — though you will be able to wear it all. the. time (and it *will* keep you warm!).
27.A set of peel-and-stick tiles, because these'll give you a (drumroll, please) new backsplash in your kitchen. Did you remodel your kitchen or just spend a fraction of what everyone thinks? I'll never tell.
28.A Valentia rose water toner spray so you can have a luxurious midday treat, but at a fraction of the usual price. It tones and balances red, irritated skin and helps to clear breakouts with vitamins A,C, and D, as well as vitamin B6. Not to mention its *rosy* scent will make you forget all about overrated spas.
29.A set of press-on nails for nixing expensive gel manis, but still having the same pro-level look ~on hand~. The name of the salon? Uh...Chez Moi.
30.An electric toothbrush to inexpensively reach the pinnacle of oral care. It works to drastically improve gum health and remove plaque and staining (which in turn will naturally whiten your teeth) — all by offering five brushing modes with ~40,000 micro-brushes~ per minute. All this for far less than leading toothbrush brands? Truly a reason to smile.
