In honor of a new season, StyleBlueprint team members share some of their recent discoveries. In this month’s edition of the SB Hot List, we’re telling you all about our latest favorite beauty products, books, loungewear essentials, and more. Take a look — and then try our picks out for yourself!
Bachan’s Japanese Barbecue Sauce
“I have recently been putting Bachan’s Japanese Barbecue Sauce on everything. The sauce is sweet, umami-filled perfection and tastes similar to teriyaki sauce … except it’s even better. It is a great addition to steamed rice and stir-fries, and it also makes a delicious marinade.” — Anne Henley Walker, Content Marketing Assistant & Agency Relations
The Farewell Tour by Stephanie Clifford
“If you’re a Daisy Jones & The Six fan, I highly recommend Stephanie Clifford’s The Farewell Tour. The book follows the life of fictional country singer Lillian Waters (aka ‘Water Lil’) as she rises to fame in the 1980s. As Lillian embarks on one last tour around the U.S., she is forced to confront her past and the choices she made on her journey to success — which are sometimes a bit questionable.” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Sponsored Content Manager
Floating Candle Lights
“In honor of all things spooky this month, I have to share these floating candles. They were super easy to hang from our front porch ceiling (I used Christmas light Command hooks), and I’ve gotten so many compliments on our little spooky porch because of these! They come with attached fishing lines, and we even had enough to use the extras to hang decorative witch hats. The lights come with a magic wand remote; my kids LOVE turning them on each night. I’m sure we will be using these for years to come. They’re the perfect spooky, but not scary Halloween decor for the little ones!” — Lauren Cummings, Operations Manager

“I’ll admit that the brand name on these slippers is what caught my eye first, but adorable name aside, I’m happy to report that these slippers are just as warm and cozy as they look (without being overly hot). They’re available in several colors, and they’re made with felted wool, so they stretch a bit over time — if you’re on the fence about sizing, order true to size or down a half-size.” — Alissa Harb, Managing Editor
Meenew Two-Piece Sweatsuit
JVN Shampoo & Conditioner
“I recently started using JVN shampoo and conditioner (created by Jonathan Van Ness of the Queer Eye reboot) and have been loving them! It offers all the goodness of a high-end shampoo and conditioner at a much better price.” — Bailey Torkelson, Marketing Manager
Adidas Low-Cut Socks
“I’ve been in such a crew sock mood, and these are so comfy! They come in a pack of three and are thin enough to pair with sneakers and a tennis skirt. I think it elevates a sporty look!” — Katelyn Caughron, Client Relations & Social Media Coordinator
Mississippi State University Cheese
“I recently discovered Mississippi State University Cheese — a Southern secret worth letting your friends know about! It always starts to ship in late fall to avoid over-heated boxes, which is perfect for holiday giving. I was fortunate enough to be in Mississippi recently, which allowed me to pick some up in person. Y’all — order some now and for just $27, start making a new holiday tradition!” — Liza Graves, CEO & Founder
Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza
“If you’re in the mood for silly, good ol’ fashioned rowdy fun, Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza is it — you really have to play it to appreciate it. It’s technically a card game, but it includes some hilarious charade-like motions that will have you rolling on the floor. And pounding your chest like a gorilla … well, you’ll just have to see for yourself.” — Jenna Bratcher, Associate Editor & Lead Nashville Writer
Music City Gyros
“Music City Gyros is a permanent food truck in the Kroger parking lot on Charlotte Avenue in Nashville. They seem to have a lot of locations, but these are the best gyro platters I’ve found in Nashville!” — Jay Graves, COO
