As another very hot month starts to wind down, we’re sharing the hottest items on our radar right now. From new ingredients we’re using in the kitchen to Amazon finds we can’t stop gushing about, we’re sharing a peek into Monday morning conversations among the StyleBlueprint team! Here’s this month’s edition of the SB Hot List.

Alessi Balsamic Reduction

“I’ve always been a balsamic vinegar fan, particularly if we’re talking about authentic, traditional aged balsamic from Italy. It’s just so darn delicious and versatile! But my new obsession is this Alessi Balsamic reduction, which takes balsamic in a slightly different direction, elevating dishes with a sweetness that works drizzled over everything from a cheese board to roasted vegetables or even strawberries. It’s easy enough to make your own, but this is a quick go-to when you’re low on time or energy, and it also happens to be easy on the wallet. I get mine at Kroger!” — Jenna Bratcher, Associate Editor & Lead Nashville Writer

PUMIEY Bodysuit

“My daughter LOVES these bodysuits and swears that they are better than the ones from SKIMS. Plus, it’s a great price — under $30!” — Amanda Stanfill, Account Executive

scünci Claw Clip

“I love the current claw clip trend because it allows me to put in minimum effort with my hair and still look put-together. But I have long, thick hair, so many claw clips I’ve found are too small or flimsy to hold my hair in place. This clip changed the game. It is huge and so sturdy. I’ve been using it daily!” — Bailey Torkelson, Marketing Manager

Masterbuilt Gravity Series 800 Grill

“We recently gifted Masterbuilt Gravity Series 800 grills to my dad and husband, and we are loving it! It’s a griddle, charcoal grill, and smoker all in one. It heats up really fast and maintains temperature. We’ve had some incredible steaks, burgers, and veggies on it, and we use it almost every night! We also purchased the pizza oven insert and have yet to use it, but given the other yummy meals that have come off of this grill, I’d say it’s going to be good!” — Lauren Cummings, Operations Manager

Breathe-X by Life Seasons

“I have the world’s worst allergies, and lately, my sinuses have been just as bad. I don’t particularly love to take harsh cold medication, so this option has been a game-changer.” — Katelyn Caughron, Client Relations & Social Media Manager

Dr. Scholl’s Happiness Lo Sneaker

“I just absolutely LOVE these shoes! Chasing two toddlers, I feel more comfortable wearing closed-toed or tennis shoe-type shoes, but I want something I can wear around adults, too. These give me that feel with a stylish look. Plus, you can wear them without socks, and with the anti-microbial technology, they don’t stink, which is always a huge shoe win during summers in the South!” — Chelsea Wilhite, Account Executive

Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez

“I’m always searching for a quality love story, and I recently discovered Abby Jimenez. She’s an incredible romance author, and Part of Your World is what got me hooked on her. It’s such a cute story about a workaholic city girl who meets a rough-around-the-edges carpenter when she gets stranded in a small town. Without giving too much away, their story starts with a baby goat and a grilled cheese sandwich. I mean, what else could you ask for?” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Sponsored Content Manager

Two-Sided Travel Laundry/Packing Bag

“I’ve traveled too much in the past 18 months. It started with Covid-postponed trips and just spiraled from there. With so much travel back to back, it stood out that it’s dirty underwear and socks that I need a separate place for. Typically, I want to pack socks and underwear together, sort through them together, and then wash them together. This double sided, two-pocket bag is the answer. Pack all your clean undies and socks in one side – the side that says, “Wear Me” – and as you wear through them, place them in the other side – the side that says, “Wash Me.” It’s a game changer for travel. I also ordered these for both my daughters for Christmas (let’s hope they aren’t reading this).” – Liza Graves, Founder + CEO

This pump makes hot water show up quickly in any house. Note that it does require a plumber to install, though!” — Jay Graves, COO

LesserEvil Himalayan Pink Salt Organic Popcorn

“While I try not to be sucked into watching every nutritional video on Instagram, I was admittedly attracted to a video recently that asked, ‘Do you love to eat Skinny Pop Popcorn?’ So I started watching the video and learned about LesserEvil Himalayan Pink Salt Organic Popcorn. The product claims that it’s less processed and it’s air-popped — the healthiest kind of popcorn you can eat. I decided to order a box from Amazon, and I can tell you this … It. Is. Tasty. I can also tell you that it’s a very easy and relatively guilt-free snack. I highly recommend!” — Melissa Thompson, Account Executive

Zyflamend Herbal Anti-Inflammatory

“Okay. I’m not a doctor. But five years ago, I developed a case of adhesive capsulitis in my hip. (Ever heard of frozen shoulder? It’s common in swimmers and baseball players, and it’s exactly what it sounds like — it’s an inflammatory condition that causes the tissue around the joint to “freeze,” causing pain and drastically limiting range of motion.) It’s incredibly rare in the hip joint. Lucky me! All that to say, I underwent multiple therapies over several months in order to heal, but managing the pain was difficult, and this herbal anti-inflammatory was recommended to me by a dietitian. Total game-changer. I’ve been experiencing tightness in my hip recently and have been reminded of how great this stuff is. I’ve seen it work wonders for others too! If you prefer to lean into natural remedies when possible, it’s definitely worth looking into.” — Alissa Harb, Managing Editor

Safer Home Indoor Fly Trap

“How ANNOYING are the summer fruit flies that take over your kitchen? Apple cider vinegar and plastic wrap contraptions were NOT working for me, so I researched this plug-in UV sticky trap on Amazon. It has worked wonders. I have ordered them for my whole family.” — Zoe Yarborough, Staff Writer

Misc. Goods Natural Deodorant

“I love this natural deodorant from Misc. Goods called Underhill. It’s aluminum- and paraben-free! I got it at the Made Market in Franklin, TN. They have amazing scents for men and women, and it works great!” — Brandon Smith, Account Executive
