SB Hot List: 16 of Our Recent Favorites

Go-To Dinners by Ina Garten

“In her newest cookbook, Go-To Dinners, culinary QUEEN Ina Garten shares her strategies for making her most satisfying and uncomplicated dinners. There is even a guide on how to turn leftovers into something different and delicious the second night, as well as fun dinner party ideas such as her Breakfast-for-Dinner Board.” — Anne Henley Walker, Content Marketing Assistant & Agency Relations

NCS Restore B Complex

“I recently purchased a new moisturizer when I was at Nashville Cosmetic Surgery, picking up some Revision IntelliShade (an amazing sunscreen/tinted moisturizer that I wear every single day). I asked if they had a powerful moisturizer I could use morning and night. They suggested their NCS Restore B Complex. I traveled with it to Patagonia over the holidays and slathered it on morning and night, and it adeptly protected my skin against the 40-mile-per-hour winds that I encountered on daily, long hikes. My skin soaked this in and instantly felt and looked better. With these dry winter months, this is my new go-to, and I highly recommend it!” — Liza Graves, CEO & Founder

Rechargeable Reading Light

“My fiancé recently purchased this reading light for us, as we’re reading Game of Thrones together, and both have 2023 reading goals. I wasn’t sure I’d use it much, but I’ve ended up using it daily. Even when reading during the daytime, this little light provides the perfect spotlight. It has three light settings and clips right onto your book. I especially liked it when flying as I feel bad clicking on that bright overhead light when the cabin lights are dimmed. This saved the day!” — Bailey Torkelson, Marketing Manager

COSORI Electric Kettle

This electric kettle heats up in a flash, so I can get started on my coffee a bit faster in the mornings. The gooseneck spout has a smooth flow, helping the process of making pour-over coffee feel even more satisfying. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to drink more tea, and this kettle has five different temperature presets that have the temperatures for each kind of tea labeled. Yay for no more burnt tea leaves!”  — Robert Conklin, Digital Developer

‘Glossy Locks’ Shampoo + Conditioner

“This all-natural shampoo-and-conditioner duo was recently recommended to me by a friend who is devoted to finding the best nontoxic beauty products. My hair feels amazing, and now I can’t wait to try the other hair products from this line.” — Alissa Harb, Managing Editor

T-Shirt Towel

“I recently learned that using a regular towel to dry your hair causes frizziness and breakage — especially for those of us who have curly hair. I was told that it’s better to use a cotton T-shirt, and then I discovered this wonderful T-shirt towel from LUS Brands. I wear it on my head for about 20 minutes after I wash my hair, and it absorbs excess water without causing frizz!” — Mary Breen, Website Designer

Sennheiser MOMENTUM Headphones

“I’ve had these Sennheiser MOMENTUM 2 wireless earbuds for almost three years now, and they’re amazing! I’ve done countless hours of research on earbuds and headphones over the past couple of years, and these continue to rank as one of the premier options for wireless earbuds. Sennheiser also just released the MOMENTUM 4 wireless, over-the-ear headphones back in August 2022, and they have received stellar reviews as well. I’m not the biggest audiophile by any means, but I really enjoy quality and durability, and I can say firsthand that this brand offers both at a very reasonable price!” — Brandon Smith, Account Executive

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

“During the holiday season, I found myself in a reading slump, but The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides was super quick to get me out of it! If you’re a fan of suspenseful thrillers, I can’t recommend it enough. The story follows Alicia and Theo. Alicia is accused of killing her husband but hasn’t spoken a single word to anyone since the accusation. Theo is Alicia’s psychotherapist who is determined to get her to talk. From an unreliable narrator to an ending that will leave your head spinning, it has all of the ingredients for a perfect thriller.” — Brianna Goebel, Associate Editor & Sponsored Content Manager

Dyson V8 Vacuum

“The Dyson V8 is the best vacuum ever. With it being cordless, I don’t have to worry about cords or reaching all of the spots behind my couches and chairs — and all I have to do is charge it! Not to mention it sucks up ALL the dog hair!” — Katelyn Caughron, Client Relations & Social Media Coordinator

RENPHO Eye Massager

“This was the big winner in our family for 2022 Christmas gifts. I gave one to my husband and daughter to share, and either one or the other has been using it daily since it was opened! This device is great for migraines, reducing eye strain, improving sleep, and it’s just a generally cool product. If you’re a fan of massagers, you need this RENPHO Eye Massager. It is easy to charge and use. I’ll try it myself soon if it’s not being used by my husband or daughter!” — Melissa Thompson, Account Executive

Blank Slate

“What’s better than a fun new game to add to your entertainment repertoire? This one added a healthy dose of laughter to our holiday break, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Make that buffalo chicken dip, pour the drinks, and play away! Blank Slate is loads of fun whether or not you’re a wordsmith. Basically, if you’re an enthusiast of fun, this is your kind of game. It’s also relatively age-inclusive. In fact, my daughters (8 and 10) loved it as much as we grown-ups! SB Tip: This game works for three to eight players, but it’s more fun when you have over five. You can technically play it via Zoom, too, so don’t let long-distance deter you from having a much-needed laugh with your friends!” — Jenna Bratcher, Associate Editor & Lead Nashville Writer

FrostKnit Flare Pants

“Made with Outdoor Voice’s warmest material, the FrostKnit Flare Pants have become a closet staple for me. They are perfect for my daily walks in the winter and super cozy to lounge in. As a bonus, they’re incredibly flattering, and the black pair is nice enough to dress up or down!” — Madison Huskey, Digital Account Coordinator

Béis Weekender Bag

“The Béis Weekender has changed my life. I never check a bag (especially in this airline turmoil), but this has doubled the amount that I can take. The bottom compartment can fit shoes and more, and I put my favorite Amazon toiletries bag in the bottom, too. And the bag fits over the handle of your roller bag. The regular Weekender is really big, so if it’s filled to the brim, you’ll barely get it under the seat in front of you. That’s my only disclaimer. There is also a Mini Weekender that still has ample room. Get. This. Bag.” — Zoe Yarborough, Staff Writer

Homemade Dry Shampoo

“This homemade dry shampoo includes one cup of cornstarch and two tablespoons of baking soda. You can also add essential oils for scent, and some oils have benefits for hair. I used lavender. Get a big fluffy makeup brush and just dab it on your roots to freshen your hair between washes!” — Lauren Cummings, Business Coordinator

Cabana Room Spray

“If you want your home to smell like you just stepped into The Ritz-Carlton, this is my go-to favorite room spray and now favorite hostess gift. Every time people walk into my house, they are like, “What smells so good!?” It’s divine in every sense of the word.” — Amanda Stanfill, Account Executive
