SB Hot List: 13 New Discoveries We Love
Easy Access Crossbody Bag
“I’ve had the fanny packs, but this crossbody bag changes the game. I use it to take my dog on walks (and it’s filled with treats, waste bags, water, etc.), when I’m running errands (it fits your phone and credit cards perfectly), or if I just want a fun, trendy bag to match my athleisure outfit.” — Katelyn Caughron, Local Business Partner Client Success Representative
“‘Motel Makeover’ on Netflix is so good! Besties-turned-business-partners renovate a motel into a chic, modern place you’ll want to stay!” — Cameron Meek, Account Executive
“I recently came across the Truelux candle line in a local Birmingham boutique, Wrapsody, and I immediately purchased one for a gift and one to keep. As a collector of candles, this one intrigued me because the melted wax has ingredients so pure that it can be used as a lotion! My favorite scent is ‘Cadillac,’ which is described as ‘leather, watermelon, and champagne room.’ I can’t wait to try them all!” — Taylor Justice, Marketing Associate
“I have three cats and litter cleanup is a real chore. Standard procedure is to provide a litter pan for each cat plus one extra, so I’ve been manning four litter pans for years. My cousin insisted I check out the Litter-Robot, a self-cleaning litter box. The price stings, but going from four litter boxes to one that stays clean all of the time converted me into a believer. Now my house never smells like a litter box, and there are no dirty paw tracks.” — Ginny Staggs, Director of Sales
Survive The Night
“I recently read Survive The Night by Riley Sager, and it’s one of the best thrillers I’ve read in a while. It’s full of twists and turns, and just when I thought I had predicted the ending, the author threw in one last plot twist. He also includes a lot of unique and fun movie references, which really adds to the story. It’s a fairly easy read and perfect for binging on vacation — I read it in two days!” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Staff Writer
Revision Skincare® YouthFull Lip Replenisher
“I love all lip products, and this one might be my all-time favorite. It’s super moisturizing and has this unique cooling effect on your lips as well. It’s a must-purchase!” — Amanda Stanfill, Account Executive
‘Brami’ Tops and Bodysuits from Klassy Network
“I’m currently loving the built-in bra tops and bodysuits — “bramis” and “bramisuits” — from woman-owned online retailer Klassy Network. For me, this line is the epitome of style-meets-function. (I challenge you to find a better budget-friendly bodysuit with a built-in bra. Believe me, I’ve tried.) The Klassy shop features a wide variety of styles, from tube and halter tops to long-sleeve bodysuits. They’re comfortable, great for layering, and totally affordable. But I highly recommend following them on Instagram or signing up for their mailing lists for stock updates. Their most popular styles and colors sell out quickly.” — Alissa Harb, Managing Editor
Porkless Pork Rinds
“As of recently, porkless pork rinds from Trader Joe’s have been my snack of choice. Since I am unsure when TJ’s will stop selling them, I have to grab an armful every time I go shopping.” — Robert Conklin, Digital Developer
Cream Makeup Products
“Recently, I’ve swapped nearly all my face products from powder to cream, and I have been loving the e.l.f. Putty Bronzer, the ColourPop Stix Cream Blush Stick (I also use it as a lip color), and the ColourPop Super Shock Cream Highlighter. All three of these melt into your skin and offer natural dimension and glow, and they stay put for hours!” — Bailey Torkelson, SB Shop Manager
Who Is Maud Dixon?
“I’ve read several light, fun books this summer, but I have been craving a really good read — the type that you just can’t put down. I finally found it in Who Is Maud Dixon? by Alexandra Andrews. It is a deep dive into two characters who continually surprise you, has twists and turns you’ll never expect, and an ending that will leave you unsure of who you’ve been rooting for the whole time.” — Megan Casey, Director of Marketing
Cyxus Blue Light Glasses
“Sitting in front of a computer all day can have a few downsides — namely, headaches and tired eyes from staring at the screen for hours on end. I recently got a pair (okay, several, because I simply had to get the green ones, too) of Cyxus blue light glasses, and I absolutely love them! It’s amazing what a difference they’re making.” — Jenna Bratcher, Lead Nashville Writer & Associate Editor
