Sometimes I find little purchases that seem to make a huge, fancy difference, and all I want to do is share them! Here are a few cheap luxuries that I love–all under $20–that are also at least a little bit practical.
Super-sizing your ice cubes will make any drink better. Drinks get sexier and less watered down with this cheap tray. // I love the super-soft, delicate quality of Everlane’s U-neck tee, but all their t-shirts are luxury status. // This mini print from Note To Self is so classy. // A silver-tip light bulb is an easy update to make an exposed bulb more refined–and give off softer light. // Fresh fragrances for both guys and gals are a nice change of pace every once in a while. // Coconut oil seems a little extravagant in the grocery store, but consider its millions of uses in cooking and beauty. It’s awesome as a hair product alone! // A gorgeous handmade soap is a step up from the usual pump for guests or gifts. // I love this darling tiny scalloped dish to hold little pieces of jewelry. Functional decor! // This gilded notebook is just gorgeous. // Nail polish seems simple, but even this small change can sometimes make all your old outfits feel fresh.
What little luxuries do you treat yourself to that make life just a bit nicer?
