It’s a ritual that’s also a reflex every night. I reach for my phone, add items to my cart, and hold off checking out, only to repeat the same thing the next day. We hope to vet out the items we don’t need and find the best deals in the process.
The cycle culminates for those double-date sales. This upcoming one is pretty special as it marks the middle of the year, and welcomes the change of season. I take this time as a chance to start again, set new goals for the next six months, or reinforce the conviction to end the year strong.
These thoughts went into these six fashion, beauty, and technology items. Versatile for any lifestyle, they are practical and will surely see you through the next half of the year.
