For this week’s Don’t Dillydally, we’ve dug up things that’ll zhuzh up your daily routine, like a Standard-exclusive candle by sculptor Bonam Kim, sriracha spice blends to take your meals to the next level, and a smooth ballpoint pen from Baronfig that’ll become your favorite lucky charm.
Prospect x Bonam Kim x the Standard
Made exclusively for the Standard, art e-commerce brand Prospect has teamed up with sculptor Bonam Kim on body-shaped candles just in time for Valentine’s Day. The organic beeswax and soy-wax candles are available in both male and female forms and come in a festive red.
Baronfig, makers of an incredibly smooth ballpoint pen, recently released a limited-edition version of the Strategist-favorite Squire, which features lucky motifs from 15 cultures (think ladybugs, dream catchers, and horseshoes) and comes with a nice-looking pen stand.
Nude Barre x Underclub
Underwear subscription service Underclub now sells Nude Barre’s popular seamless thongs, which come in a range of eight skin-tone shades. Typically, the thongs go for $19 a pair, but when you buy them through Underclub, you can get two for $32. An added bonus: For every pack sold, Underclub is donating a pair of underwear to Dress for Success, a nonprofit organization that provides professional clothing for women in need.
Huy Fong x Spiceology
For spice fans, Spiceology has teamed up with Huy Fong to make six sriracha spice blends to zhuzh up your dishes. Notable blends include black truffle and smoked bacon, but there are other good-sounding ones too, like honey garlic and miso teriyaki. If you want to try them all, we recommend snagging the sampler pack, which includes all six spice blends in two-ounce glass jars.
Fashion designer Jason Wu now makes clean beauty products, all of which are available at Target and come in minimal, nude-colored KKW-esque packaging. Of all the offerings, which run the gamut from glittery cream eye shadows to lip masks to pimple patches, we’re most excited about the brow soap, meant to shape brows and mimic that laminated look. The vegan formula also promises to be nonsticky and give bushy, unruly brows a defined shape.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
