If you haven’t noticed, nights in are the new nights out. We miss the parties, of course — the glamour, the spontaneity, the night magic – but we’re over waxing nostalgic. At this point, we’ve mastered the art of a perfect night in, so below you will find a list of things to help you get there. Silky loungewear? Check. A moody candle? Check. Our new favorite rosé? Obviously. I’m a Taurus, so I may be biased on this (we’re notoriously sensual, materialistic homebodies), but an indulgent night done right can be the most satisfying thing in the world.
But first, a few pro tips before you embark on this luxurious night in: clean up your space (even if it means moving all the clothes from your bed to the laundry basket), knock out all your important emails (low-grade, work-related anxiety has no place here), and be sure to pre-pick a movie to watch (nothing more disorienting than scrolling through hundreds of streaming options with no real direction). Without further ado: everything you need to level up your next night in.
Raise your hand if you’ve been eating dinner at your coffee table or your desk (or worse, your bed). If you have just an ounce of extra space, try this dining table by Wiggle Room. It’s so purely sweet and delightful, handcrafted with love and available in a happy array of pastel colors. This table will turn any meal into an occasion worth celebrating.
If you have an Instagram account, you’ve probably seen the Forever Eye Mask by Dieux Skin gracing the faces of your favorite follows. They’re aesthetically pleasing, reusable eye masks that work well with your existing products. Sustainable and chic — what’s not to love?
Omsom is a female-founded company whose mission is to bring proud, loud Asian flavors to your fingertips any day of the week — so skip the takeout this weekend. I recommend the Omsom Bundle, which includes an array of ‘starters’, aka pantry shortcuts that combine all the sauces, aromatics, and seasonings you need to cook a specific Asian dish. Recipes are provided — just add protein and veggies.
Say hello to the mushroom lamp. You’ve probably seen it on the bedside tables of the chicest women you know, and now you can be one of those women, too. Aside from the hype, these lamps are genuinely cute and will warm up any space (and there are literally hundreds to choose from on Etsy).
This new novel by Lauren Oyler has been all the talk amongst the New York media scene. The story starts with a young woman snooping through her boyfriend’s phone and discovering that he's a popular anonymous internet conspiracy theorist. It’s very now and almost frighteningly relevant.
