SNOOZ White Noise Machine

If you need noise to fall asleep, you basically have three options: 

  1. Sleep with the TV on, which has the potential to annoy partners unless the like the dulcet sounds of The Simpsons' theme song going off every 20 or so minutes as you cycle through the "play all" setting of your favorite DVD.
  2. Sleep with an AC or fan on, which is fine in the summer, but not exactly great for cold winter months (and not really great for your electric bill either).
  3. Fall asleep to white noise apps on your phone, with your headphones digging into your ears and making it virtually impossible to get comfortable. 

 Listen up, though... we've found a fourth option, and that's the SNOOZ White Noise Machine ($79, Amazon). Using the sound of a real fan (without making your room cold), the machine will help drown out other noise and lull you to sleep. It's compact, lightweight, and is nicely-designed enough for you to want to keep it on your nightstand.

Brutal Truth Moisturizer 

We're not exactly sure where the concept of taking care of yourself took on a feminine bent, but having a self-care regimen is something dudes dismiss as something only for the fairer sex. Because of this, a lot of guys are reticent to adopt any kind of grooming routine aside from brushing their teeth and shaving (which, now that beards are en vogue, rarely happens anyway).    

Listen up, men—it's time to start taking care of your damn self.  Brutal Truth is a line of men's products believe that whole-heartedly, and this Brutal Truth Moisturizer ($32, Huckberry) is perhaps the first good step towards adopting a regular skincare routine.

10 Lunch Boxes With No Disney Characters On Them

Browse any store during back-to-school season and you'll see that most lunch boxes for kids (some 95 percent?) are emblazoned with Disney or other cartoon characters on them. Maybe you're starting to reach peak level for all things Frozen? Or maybe you're just worried your kid will move on and, come November, refuse to carry anything with Elsa or Olaf on it. (Hey, it could happen!)

That's why we've rounded up 10 adorable lunch boxes — without Disney characters on them. And maybe, just maybe, your kid will agree to use it for more than just one school year. Here's hoping. Read it on The Kitchn

10 Awesome Farmhouse Finds from Magnolia

Texas-based husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines might be best known for their HGTV series, Fixer Upper — where they fix up decrepit old homes, always adding their signature farmhouse style — but among other projects they also own Magnolia Market, a store that sells wares that perfectly embody the couple's design aesthetic.

While we typically prefer our old, farmhouse-y finds to actually be old (and not faux old), we usually make exceptions for dining and entertaining stuff. And these items from Magnolia Market are all worth a second glance. Read it on The Kitchn

Cinema Light Box 

When you were in college, you coveted the light up signs that were at the shitty bars you used to frequent. And even after you grew up and realized that a self-respecting 30-year-old can't have a Bud Light Lime sign hanging in her apartment, your magpie self never quite grew out of liking bright lights.  Enter the Cinema Light Box ($50, Huckberry), a mature way to inject a little light-up action in your home. It comes with 100 letters, numbers, and characters so you can switch out the messaging to your heart's content, and—unlike similar lightboxes and signs—it runs on batteries, so you don't have to hide an unsightly cord when you mount it on the wall.
