<h2>Bachan's Yuzu Japanese Barbecue Sauce</h2><br><br>"Not to be dramatic, but this might be the best sauce to ever sauce. I've tried Bachan's array of small-batch barbeque sauces (which are also amazing), but this yuzu-infused one is seriously on another level. It's sweet, savory, and has a hint of citrus that instantly brightens up any dish. I drizzle it on grilled salmon, bao buns, roasted veggies...literally anything. This could even be sublime on a fried chicken and waffles situation!

<h2>Madison Reed Color Therapy Hair Mask</h2><br><br>"I have naturally very dark brunette hair, and last year decided to brighten things up with some strategically placed ash brown highlights to add some dimension. I still see my amazing colorist Mai at Bumble and Bumble every few months, but I use a few toning products at home to help neutralize the brassy tones that love to creep up on color-treated hair. One of my favorites is Madison Reed's Color Therapy Hair Mask in Caffe, a cool-toned espresso shade that I use about once a week to help refresh my highlights.

Madison Reed Color Therapy Hair Mask

“I have naturally very dark brunette hair, and last year decided to brighten things up with some strategically placed ash brown highlights to add some dimension.

<h2>mDesign Steel Frame/Wood Top Horizontal Dresser</h2><br><br>"I faced the wildest part of my apartment this month: my closet.

<h2>Madewell Bandana</h2><br><br>"Bandanas are my go-to whenever my hair is not cooperating. At this point, I'm a total bandana hoarder — I have way too many of them. Last month, I bought this one from Madewell almost impulsively, purely for the print and the neutral colors. It was truly a wonderful decision. I wear this so so so often, it goes with so many outfits and it just <em>feels</em> nice. Highly recommend if you're a bandana lover like me.
