2. The Clambake wines at www.ripelifewines.com. The wines are delicious and perfect for upcoming warm weather. Founder, Mary McAuley’s inspiration was simple – she was a beach obsessed sommelier (and French Culinary Institute grad) tasked with picking the wines for her friends annual clambake on the Jersey shore. When she couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for, she rolled up her sleeves and made them herself for the next year with premium Mendocino grapes. The result? A bright, unoaked Chardonnay that is light, clean and smooth, and a delicate, fruit-forward floral rose. While they conjure up images of shoreside seafood feast, they are perfect to sip wherever you are, as an aperitif or with a wide variety of warm weather dishes Mary can suggest.

6. Formé is the first and only shoe shaper that safely stretches shoes up to a half a size, eliminating the pain that occurs when the toe box gets tight as the day wears on. You can customize the amount of stretch and they work in any shoes (heels, flats, boots, sandals, sneakers) of any material (leather, fabric, even synthetic). Or use this sleek, lightweight device simply to help shoes keep their shape when you’re not wearing them. Designed by a woman for women, Formé shapers give new life to shoes 1) you love but don’t wear because they never fit quite right, 2) become uncomfortable after just a short time on the feet. $49
7. CLEARstem skin care for Acne Care + Anti-Aging and is great for anyone experiencing hormonal acne (like new moms)! CLEARStem’s four formulas (two serums, one cleanser-makeup remover and one exfoliating cleanser) are designed to help fade acne scars, clear up current breakouts, hydrate, skin properly and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The real CLEARStem difference is that the line uses absolutely no pore clogging ingredients. According to co-founder Danielle Gronich, a cellular biologist and licensed esthetician who has her own acne-focused clinic in San Diego, “organic” isn’t the right strategy for acne. In fact, she says essential oils, coconut oil, shea butter, seaweed, algae and many more create instant “traffic jams” in the pores.
