Every month, the Artful Living team shares our current obsessions, cravings or guilty pleasures that are keeping us at 100.
I’m a self-care fanatic, and a standout product in my collection of goods is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. Want to know a hack? I wear it throughout the day. The Korean-created berry-infused balm keeps my lips nourished and plump without the stinging effect. Calling it a lifesaver would be an understatement. –Emma
Have your chocolate and get your probiotics, too. These yummy individually wrapped chocolates have one billion live probiotic cultures per piece and 50 percent less sugar than milk chocolate. Have a couple per day for a gut-loving, guilt-free treat. –Jenna
Felix Gray glasses are perfect for anyone who gets headaches after looking at screens too long. Here at Artful Living, we’re constantly on our laptops and phones, so after one of us got a pair of these glasses (which, BTW, are fashionable and affordable), four more immediately bought some. They have a slight yellow tint that is unnoticeable when looking at a screen, which is how you know they work. Tip: Use your HSA account to cover the cost. –Margaret
I’m at the point in my life where investing in something that’s going to last longer than my current lease is important. I recently moved into a new apartment with hardwood floors, floor-to-window ceilings and a sunset-facing view. The problem? Every afternoon, the sun illuminates all the dust that has somehow accumulated on the floor in the past 24 hours. During my latest Target trip, I saw the Shark Rocket vacuum, and it was love at first sight. –AJ
When I get home, one of the first things I do is turn on my Vitruvi stone diffuser. I’m all about essential oils — lavender at night and peppermint in the morning. The high-quality white porcelain diffuser makes for an extra pleasing item on my nightstand. –Kathleen
Talk about a binge-worthy series. PEN15 is Broad City meets your best (worst?) middle-school memories. It’s like watching a train wreck in slow motion, because you already know what’s going to happen next in the high-drama, hormone-driven adolescent days of main characters Anna Kone and Maya Ishii-Peters. It’s got me feeling some major nostalgia for the early 2000s: dial-up Internet, AIM, burning CDs, spaghetti straps, butterfly clips — need I say more? –Kate
I’m currently obsessed with Perfect Bar. It’s my go-to supplement after a workout or as a meal replacement when I’m on the move. It seems almost impossible that it’s healthy because it tastes just like a candy bar. The product is gluten-free and contains 20+ organic superfoods with 17 grams of protein and no added preservatives. Perfect Bars can be found at Target, Whole Foods and even Starbucks. –Frank
