WHAT: Sunday Riley Juno Transformative Lipid Serum
WHY: Another day, another truly obsession-worthy summer skincare solution--but while SK-II's serum will leave your visage gorgeously matte and dry to the touch, new skincare line Sunday Riley's serum is purely a blend of oils, like acai, argan, blackberry seed, chardonnay grape seed, and even broccoli seed oils. It may sound scary to slather a summer face in oil, but we just can't get enough. It won't leave you greasy, but absolutely glowing--and the natural retinol, Omega-3, 6, & 9, essential amino acids, Vitamin C, UV shields, and natural anti-inflammatory agents don't hurt, either. Consider your dewy skin dreams fulfilled!

WHAT: Martin Katz micro bands
WHY: Easter may have passed, but we're still obsessed with the array of pretty pastel shades that took over--if just for one day. Why not deck out your fingers in bands of similar colors? Martin Katz's stackable bands come in every color combination imaginable (we're partial to to the rose gold and pink diamond variety), so there's really something for everyone.
PRICE: $2,400-6,500 each

WHAT: SK-II Cellumination Essence Hydrating Serum
WHY: We couldn't be happier about the recent spring weather, but let's face it, loves: now, your skincare routine needs an overhaul. Those super-moisturizing creams that saved your skin during the harsh winters are now a bit too rich for everyday--no one likes a greasy visage when it's warm out. Enter SK-II brand-new serum. It offers vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids to quench your skin's thirst, all with a perfectly matte, dry finish.
PRICE: $150 for 30 ml
AVAILABLE: Select Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdales locations, and on www.sk-ii.com

WHAT: Alexis Bittar Knot Necklace in Black & Gold
WHY: We adore the fusion of uptown chic meets downtown edge--and recent CFDA nominee Bittar has done just that with his chunky knotted necklace. It's big, it's bold, and it's perfectly cocktail-friendly. Subtle jewelry lovers need not apply!
AVALIABLE: Alexis Bittar stores or www.alexisbittar.com
