The thing that has been getting me through the winter is hot yoga. But there is one — only one–drawback. My laundry load has quadrupled. There’s so much sweating going on that I need so much more gear than I have. That, or I need to start doing laundry two to three times a week. Not gonna happen! I heard some girls at my yoga studio talking about this service called PV.Body. For $50 a month, stylists pick out a top and bottom, of various brands and styles, customized to your body type and workout needs, and ship them (free of charge) to your doorstep. If you’ve ever shopped at Lululemon, then you know that a new yoga outfit will run you at least $150. Save a $100? Yes, please. Added bonus: if you don’t like your new outfit, you can exchange it for another. If that isn’t motivation to stick with your new workout routine, I don’t know what is. [$50/ month, PV.Body]

Skin Care That’s The Fountain Of Youth

As a beauty and style editor, I get to try lots and lots of skincare products. You should see my bathroom at home (actually, you shouldn’t see my bathroom at home, it’s a hoarder’s paradise). There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but rarely do I find a product that’s legitimately great. Fresh’s new Lotus Youth Cream is that product. An anti-aging face cream with a propietary Super 7 Complex, the Lotus Youth Cream works to minimize the signs of aging and make your skin feel all dewy and fresh. There’s a bunch of good-for-your-skin stuff in it, like maca root extract, which apparently speeds up cell turnover; lotus flower extract, which defends against free radicals; and blue-green algae, which preserves collagen. That’s the long answer to why you’d want to use this stuff. The short answer is, it makes your skin look luminous and beautiful and radiant. [$42, Fresh]

How Many Hair Ties Does It Take To Get To The Center Of This Lollipop?

You don’t have to do any licking to solve this riddle, because this is actually a set of 60 hair ties wrapped up in the shape of an adorable lollipop. At the rate I lose hair ties, one of these lollipops would last me about a week, so I should probably buy all three. [$8.95, Neatoshop]

I’m always looking for new ways to get motivated to talk on the phone. I absolutely dread answering and returning phone calls. But I do love bananas. This radiation-proof iPhone handset is sure to put the fun back in phone time. Or, if nothing else, it should inspire some situational comedy when seen walking down the street asking a banana, “How are you today?” [$21.99, Amazon via Outblush]

Another election is four years away? Blerg. At least we’ve got plenty of time to convince Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to make the Poehler/Fey ticket actually happen. (Although, would it be great if they launched their campaign while hosting Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards?) Those bitches would get stuff done and wear sweatshirts and sensible shoes while doing it. Just think: instead of war we’d have “page offs” and we’d squeeze our mind grapes to solve real problems in America. Liberty, justice and Cheesy Blasters for all. Vote Poehler/Fey, 2016!

Cenoire created a facial massager intended to be used to give you a little bit of a pick-me-up when your skin is feeling tired and grey. The 24K Beautè Bar is a helpful tool that can give you a facial massage on the go, offering 6,000 vibrations per minute to bring a little color and luster to your face. But, BONUS! It also works well as an ancillary treatment for headaches. I found this out yesterday when my migraine (currently on day two) was at its worst. Running the Beautè Bar against the bones in my nose and cheeks instantly cleared up congestion and left me breathing better. And, while, yes, I still have that pesky migraine, massaging around my eye (the center of the storm, as it were), did help alleviate a bit of the pain. So better skin and less intense headaches? I call that a win-win. [$59.99, Cenoire]

For those of us who were born into the unfortunate circumstance of having to work for a living, weekends are a very important thing for us. They are a time for fun and relaxation, a time to catch up on our favorite TV shows, like “Downton Abbey.” I suppose we’ll have to school the Dowager Countess on the art of weekending. This canvas tote is perfect for weekend errands or overnight getaways. (These are all things that happen on weekends, Lady Violet.) [$18.99, Shop PBS]

Proof That Vanilla Is Anything But Boring

I go hogwild for anything vanilla. It’s my favorite flavor, and I will eagerly eat anything that includes the word “vanilla” in the title, even if it’s, like, a vanilla tuna casserole (yum!). So I’ll definitely be clearing a space on my kitchen shelf for Pure Vanilla, a whole cookbook dedicated solely to delicious vanilla recipes. Vanilla bean donuts and vanilla coconut popsicles? Yes, please! [$23, Modcloth]

My lips are crazy chapped this time of year. Eh, who am I kidding — I’m in the throes of a lifelong battle against cracked, peeling lips, which is probably the least sexy thing in all of the world. Not that sexy is one of my foremost concerns, given that I have eschewed men for the new year. But should I decide to reestablish myself in the dating world, like, ever, make no mistake: I will be armed to the teeth with Suvana Beauty’s Certified Organic Paw Paw & Honey Balm. Most leading lip balms are full of deceptive, sometimes toxic ingredients that actually harm skin (the body’s largest organ, you guys!) in the long run, but because this 100% natural version contains no petroleum, mineral oil, or synthetic chemicals, it’s perfect for those “holy shit what am I putting on my body” moments. Yes, it’s slightly more expensive than a stick of cherry Chapstick (plus, come on, way cuter), but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind. And mouth. [$14, Beautyhabit]

Every once in a while, I get my eyebrows professionally threaded. But for the most part, I tweeze. Because I’m lazy, and also anxiety-prone and ripping out eyebrow hairs feels somehow calming. But most tweezers? Totally ineffectual. It’s so hard to see the hairs! But not anymore. Revlon finally put two and two together and realized that to adequately tweeze you’ve got to be able to see the effing hairs. So they created the Revlon Spotlight Tweezer With LED Technology, and added a small LED light to their latest tweezers, and holy crap, what an improvement. You can actually see the hairs — even the little ones that are super wispy and easy to miss. Better tweezing through science!  [$10.99, Drugstore.com]
