In this edition of SB Hot List, we’re sharing some of the best items we’ve recently discovered and are taking with us into the upcoming fall season. Our list includes books, beauty products, snacks, wardrobe essentials, and more. Take a look at these discoveries — and find out why we can’t stop obsessing over them!
“I recently bought eight of these tube squeezers, and I already need more. Not only do they maximize the amount of product you can squeeze out of the tube, but they also keep my stuff organized. I put them snugly in a drawer or on my kitchen counter. No more digging through makeup bags or drawers for the main things you use. Face medicine and other beauty products aren’t cheap, so get every last drop! Plus, the price is amazing.” — Zoe Yarborough, Staff Writer
Trader Joe’s Chocolatey Coated Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Bites
“Trader Joe’s Chocolatey Coated Peanut Butter Crispy Rice Bites are the perfect treat when you’re in the mood for something salty and sweet. They’re individually packaged and bite-sized, which I love — and quite hard to put down!” — Madison Huskey, Digital Account Coordinator
The Wives by Tarryn Fisher
“The Wives by Tarryn Fisher is a mind-bending thriller, perfect for spooky season! The book follows a young woman who is married to a man with two other wives. That’s really all I can say without giving too much away. By the end of the book, you won’t know which way is up.” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Sponsored Content Manager
“[The hosts of Drama Queens] are my best friends who don’t even know me! I am one of the OG One Tree Hill fans, and I related to … each episode back then. All these years later, these ladies’ real-life and fictional characters’ stories still resonate with me in every episode. I laugh, cry, reflect, and ponder all life things past and present while listening!” — Chelsea Wilhite, Account Executive
The Linen Way-High Drape Pant
“These linen trousers are the best-fitting pants I have ever owned. They are so comfortable, hit super high on the waist for a flattering silhouette, are loose without being too baggy, and sit perfectly below my ankle (for reference, I’m 5’6”). They’re also on sale now! (Fair warning: The canvas shade is quite sheer!).” — Bailey Torkelson, Marketing Manager
Miss Mouth’s Messy Eater Stain Treater
“Even if you don’t have kiddos, this stain remover is amazing! You only need to spray one or two times, and it gets all the stains out.” — Katelyn Caughron, Client Relations & Social Media Coordinator
“Superhuman AI is an amazing email program that has helped me get to inbox zero and stay there. It’s awesome!” — Jay Graves, COO
Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlight Stick
“I have recently been obsessed with Westman Atelier’s Lit Up Highlight Stick. Made with clean ingredients, the translucent gel highlighter leaves my skin perfectly dewy. I use it across my cheeks and on the bridge of my nose for a glassy finish.” — Anne Henley Walker, Content Marketing Assistant & Agency Relations
Family Trips with the Meyers Brothers
“If you’re a fan of Seth Meyers and fun escapism, you will love this podcast. Family Trips with the Meyers Brothers is a great way to take an audio break from more serious listening. Seth and his brother, Josh, interview their friends who happen to be celebrities and discuss their favorite family trips — both as children and as adults with their own children. The stories shared are always funny and almost always relatable. I love it!” — Melissa Thompson, Account Executive
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah
“Born A Crime by Trevor Noah is an absolute must-read. It’s smart, hilarious, heartfelt, and eye-opening about life in South Africa under apartheid. Trevor blends the hardships of his childhood with comedy, a positive outlook, and love. I highly recommend this book.” — Mary Breen, Website Designer
Ciele Knit Running Hat
“If you’re a runner, you know a good hat is a must! I just got this Ciele running hat. I’ve tried a bunch of different brands, and this one is the best I’ve found. They have a ton of styles and colors to choose from. It’s super lightweight, machine washable, and fits perfectly for running. They also have a lifetime guarantee!” — Brandon Smith, Account Executive
“So, the backstory here is that I got a MyBevi Tumbler, and the first time I used it was when I went school supply shopping at the end of July. If you know anything about Nashville in July, you won’t be shocked to hear that it was 97 degrees and ridiculously humid — my weather app read, “feels like 103.” Anyhow, I left my tumbler of ice water in my car while I went into Target for an hour plus to shop for pencil cases, glue sticks, and all the other paraphernalia on my daughters’ supply lists. When I returned to my car, I expected a tumbler of lukewarm water at best. Imagine my surprise when I discovered there was still ice in it! WHOLE ice cubes! I’ve been a fan ever since. The tumbler comes in a multitude of colors (mine is coral), and since it’s also conducive to hot drinks, it’ll be the perfect accompaniment for car rides when the fall weather sets in.” — Jenna Bratcher, Lead Nashville Writer & Associate Editor
