Outdoor Voices TechSweat Flex Leggings

"I'm VERY particular about my fitness leggings and since first slipping into this TechSweat pair from Outdoor Voices, I know that I might never exercise in another pair again. They're soft, comfortable, hold everything in just the right amount without making you feel as though you have sucked yourself in within an inch of your life or can't move the way you're supposed to be able to in a yoga class or out for a run. What's more, my class of choice is hot power yoga and to say my leggings have to stand up against sweat is an understatement. I don't have to adjust these a single time in a class and they don't show a single awkward sweat stain from beginning of class to soaking wet end." —Avery Matera, fashion writer/editor and photographer

Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum

"Traditional moisturizers are usually too heavy for my oily skin. I use this lightweight gel to keep my skin hydrated and plump instead. It layers great with other products and works for both morning and night." —Lauren Balsamo, senior beauty editor at Cosmopolitan

Rotten Roach Boss Sweatshirt

"I love these sweatshirts for two reasons. First, because I’m literally always cold, especially when I travel, and they are so soft and cozy. Second, because I made them! Ha! They’re machine washable, too. We all love cashmere, but it’s not so practical when you travel a ton." —Marissa Montgomery, designer and founder of Rotten Roach

Sunday Forever Rich Candle

"Nothing better than this candle. Seriously." —Olivia Muth, SwearBy Editor

La Ligne NYC AAA Sweater

"Ever since the first brand preview I went to for La Ligne, I've been totally hooked. At this point, I think I wear at least one piece from their growing collection each day. This sweater was the first piece I ever got and I wear it more than I care to admit—it's pushed the lines of what 'go-to' is even supposed to mean. I love that the sleeves have a ribbed detail that make it feel dressed-up and special, but they aren't too oversized so that I can't run around, sit at dinner, or even work on a styling job that requires the least amount of fuss possible." —Avery Matera

Muddy Body Detox Clay Mask

"This is a holy grail item for me. This mask rids your skin of impurities and toxins, leaving it glowing and clear. Though it is a clay mask, it definitely isn't drying at all. It just does everything you need a mask to do." —Chelsea Broughton, social media consultant
