Ivy is the only health tracker designed and engineered for women which correlates menstrual cycle data, lifestyle habits, and biometric readings. In sync with the Bellabeat App on your phone, it reveals a comprehensive and accurate reporting. It tracks your heart rate, cycle data, fertility, sleep patterns, and provides a daily readiness + wellness score. $249

Living in comfort goes a long way for our physical and mental health.

This feminine silhouette is perfectly relaxed, comfortable, and flattering. You can even dress it up as this tee pairs effortlessly with any skirt or pant!

Their Luxury Trio includes a limited edition solid lotion bar, a 4 oz avocado-oat bath bar and their luxury shave set (a 6 oz fragrance-free solid shave bar, bamboo shave brush and bamboo bar storage box). $110

This company prioritizes sustainability, with completely sustainable packaging that is 100% recyclable and refillable. Guzzle down your H2O knowing that even the cap can be reused. Boxed Water bestows a plethora of both plain and flavored waters – including but not limited to: cucumber, blackberry, and lemon. We recommend the cool, calm, and collected Cucumber Water.

Grooming Lounge Body Care Products

 Lather yourself in opulence with Grooming Lounge, said to be the country’s premier source for luxurious men’s grooming. We suggest waking yourself up with energizing and nose-turning men’s body wash – cheekily named Our Best Smeller. This wash is paraben free and packed with Acai, Aloe Vera, and Black Pepper Oil. Every man needs a decadent cologne – one that is deeply rich and masculine. The Grooming Lounge’s Magnificent Bastard Eau de Toilette is only worn by men who defy such definitions as hero or villain, good or evil, friend or foe. This fine luxury is surprisingly affordable. $20-$75

It’s made with rice, quinoa and amaranth, but you’ll barely taste the difference. $23.99

What we see in the mirror when we’re dressed in our favorite outfits really matters. Sometimes, all you need is some comfortable shapewear underneath to really make you feel your best. Shapermint features super comfortable and high waisted undies that hug your curves the way they should. Their supportive bras keep everything in its place (including minimizing those underarm bulges. And, their sexy swimwear is designed to hide the things you don’t want to show and highlight others. $15-40
