It’s finally time to stop using my Ray J earbuds

Okay, before you make fun of me, Ray J’s earbuds really aren’t that bad, and they are on Black Friday offer (will 20% sale with the code EARLYBF). However, I’m tired of explaining to people that Ray J, who is apparently Brandy’s brother, the co-star of Kim Kardashian’s sextape and a singer (?), Is actually budding good, and so am I. to the days when I, too, can snob my AirPods and ask people if they are decant regularly. —Ian Burke

Why don’t I have a corduroy jacket?

I like to think my brand is somewhere between “chairlift operator out of season” and “future Burlington, VT resident” – Subaru, flannel, log splitting, hiking, all of Shabang. So it was a strange and disturbing realization when I saw this cute corduroy jacket from Far Afield and immediately knew that something was missing in my closet. In addition, inside pockets. What more could you ask for? —Ian Burke

A cup to rule them all

Everyone has a sturdy mug that is their, You know? One that everyone else in the house knows pretty much about is off-limits, even if you’ve never really put it. This beautiful Japanese ceramic mug will be mine. I’m not exactly sure what I love about it – maybe it’s the wooden handle? The simplicity? IDK, dude, all I know is that I need it big time. —Ian Burke

Ray-Bans are still cool, damn it

A friend of mine recently suggested that Ray-Ban sunglasses were not cool around me, to which I responded by immediately saying mine Club master (which are also on sale), slap me in the face and get on with my day. I’m still excited so I’m doubling my Ray-Ban destruction by including this pair of classic wayfarers. Also, you have to polarize people – watch your eyes. —Ian Burke

Maybe it’s the walnut finish or the casually crossed, oversized wooden legs on this table – for whatever reason, I just feel like a cooler, better-read version of myself from the 70s. Cant wait to have coffee and play Deer crossing on this. —Mary Frances Knapp

I always thought sleeping masks were for Zsa Zsa Gábor or other people with poodle-and-champagne energy. No way, man. These things are life saving in helping you get a deep, restful sleep no matter how much the morning sun tries to shine on your retina. So even better if it’s made from washable silk like Lunyas – all of the brand’s stuff is great and their website is currently 26% off for Black Friday. —Hilary Pollack

The best CBD topic ever, IMO

A few years ago a colleague gave me a couple of Lord Jones‘CBD body lotion to relieve my neck and shoulder pain and I’ve been a true fan ever since. It smells amaaaaaazing, works super well and has a wonderful menthol tingling sensation when applied. Lord Jones has a huge Cyber ​​Week sale (already started) with up to 35% discount on the entire website if you use that Coupon code GIFT2021; I’ll stock up on this stuff, and the more you buy, the more you save. —Hilary Pollack

The overwhelming weight of the world makes it pleasant

You spend a third of your life sleeping, which is why solid bedding is one of the most profitable investments in your personal well-being. Weighted blankets, while often described as a clichéd attempt by millennials to return to the womb, they really are the good at conveying cozy, sleepy feelings of “I’m safe, sane, and away from the babadook wherever that bastard is”. Gravity is one of the best, and the brand offers a hearty one 30% off now page wide with the Coupon code BLACKFRIDAY30. The code even works on already discounted items, which means you can use the Calm x Gravity collaboration blanket, which originally cost $ 320 and is considered “the best-weighted blanket for people with autism, ADHD, or sleep disorders” can only get $ 190.40. Basically whatever your TikTok feed induced self diagnosis is, this thing will put your mind at ease. Also very curious about Gravity’s weighted robes … —Hilary Pollack
