[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] 15 Best Beach Towels for Summer

When you were younger, you would always opt for the cheapest option. Shampoo from the dollar store, socks that came in a plastic bag, scratchy towels you bought on sale, and the like. But the older you get, the more you realize that you like to be surrounded by nice things, and the towels you bring to the beach should definitely be on your upgrade list.

Sure, you could show up to the beach carrying those nasty, worn-out towels you’ve had since college (and get ragged on by your friends for it), or you could choose one from the list of our picks for the best beach towels below and look like you truly belong on the beach. Maybe someone will actually want to sit next to you.  Read it on HiConsumption

[GIFTED] Tiny Overlord Card

When you have a baby, you are shocked by how quickly your life becomes not your own.  This screaming, crying, gurgling fragile alien is the boss of you now.  The baby decides whether or not you sleep (you don't). The baby decides whether or not you get to go out (you don't).  The baby decides whether or not you get to spend time with your partner (you don't).

So, in honor of your friend's new-found helplessness now that her infant ruler has arrived, send her this Tiny Overlord Card ($5, Little Low).  It's available in blue for boys, if you, you know, subscribe to gender norms.

[SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION] Best Slip-On Shoes for Summer

By the time summer arrives, we barely want to wear shoes of any kind. Our feet have been trapped in heavy wool socks and boots or dress shoes since October, and they’re looking for liberation, even if it’s just for a few months. That said, you can’t spend the whole summer in sandals, unless you never plan on going anywhere besides the beach and your back yard.

Slip-ons provide a happy medium between sneakers and sandals. You can wear ‘em sans socks so you’ll feel decidedly off-duty when you’re wearing them, but you won’t feel underdressed in a nicer setting like you would if you were sporting sandals. Truly, slip-ons bridge the gap in your summer plans, so we’ve rounded up 15 of the best of them. And really—who has time for laces when you’re trying to tackle all of the fun things you’ve got scheduled?  Read it at HiConsumption.

[GIFTED] Spool iPhone Dock

Because we are so beholden to our various devices, we live a life cluttered with endless cords snaking their way around everything in our homes and at our offices.  I like to think of myself as someone who seeks to live an uncluttered life, but even still, you'll find an ugly brown extension cord with a Macbook charger and a iPhone charger plugged into it sticking out from in the middle of my couch, which is ground zero for any at-home work.  

That's why you can get very interested in docks.  There are a ton of device docks that promise to free you from the cord monsters and bring some order and beauty into your life.  Most do a shitty job of it, mainly because they only accommodate your phone without your case.  Who wants to take their case off every time they want to charge their phone?  Nobody.  

That's why the Spool iPhone Dock ($65, Bite My Apple) is so awesome.  It's beautifully designed, using wood and felt and can accommodate various devices (like both your iPhone and your iPad), even if they've got cases on them.

[YOU'RE WELCOME] 10 Amazing Mother-of-the-Bride Gifts

When you’re planning your wedding, there are about 10,000 things to consider.  The big things—like the venue, the caterer, the dress, the bridal party—take up time, of course, but it’s the little things that end up taking up the majority of your time without you even realizing it.  Things like fighting with your mother over whether or not her best friend from high school that she hasn’t spoken to in 30 years really needs to be invited or figuring out what favors you’re going to give out or explaining to everyone WHY you want to have an adults-only reception take up an INSANE amount of time.

That’s why when it comes time to figuring out what gifts to give to your bridal party or your parents, you often come up short.  You wish you had more time to think about it.  You wish you had put more thought into it.  So, if you’re getting married anytime soon and don’t want to be FILLED WITH REGRET the day after your wedding, take a gander at these suggestions for amazing, thoughtful Mother-of-the-Bride gifts.

They’re all guaranteed to make her sob uncontrollably, but that’s a given, since nearly every mother is a blubbering mess on her daughter’s wedding day.
