Hello, and welcome to my Editor's Picks for April. I know it's been a minute since I've last rounded up #BrittanysBestBuys, but have no fear: I'm still here, and the Real Homes team has instead decided to expand on our Editor's Picks on a week-to-week basis.
Which means what exactly?
At the start of every month, be sure to check out my Editor's Picks for what's 'New in homes!' Here you'll find all of the buzzy buys I can't get over and what retailers have said products. Next, be sure to check out what item 'I bought and loved' and lastly, be sure to check out the sales I'm shopping for each month.
Yes, it's all very exciting newness here for me (and my Editor's Picks), but the one consistent you can rely on: this month's #BrittanysBestBuys, and here they are!
1. Beautiful bedding to spring your mattress into style
Linen Venice Set starting at $359, at Parachute
When it comes to my bed, I think of how I feel when putting on a brand-new outfit or pair of shoes: when I look good, I feel good, and the same applies to my bedding.
When I change my bedding selection to the best possible option for spring — in this case, it's this linen set — I not only ensure the best night sleep yet, but I also enjoy looking at it all-day-long. And, when you work and live in the same space, that's music to anyone's ears. View Deal
2. This new-and-improved coffee machine
Keurig K-Supreme Plus Coffee Maker l
Was $189.99, Now $156.99, at Amazon
Since the pandemic hit, I've been using my coffee maker more than ever before, and as a result, it was time for a brand-new update, and Keurig's latest release foot the bill. As someone who prefers their coffee strong and black, I found that the new 'strength' button on this model made a world of difference.
More so, when you factor in the individual buttons for glass size/preference. A few weeks into using it, and I've found that my cup of joe rivals the local coffee shops. View Deal
3. This dual spinning mop
Samsung Jetbot Mop with Dual Spinning Technology for $229, at Samsung
For anyone who has read my review on the Samsung Jet 90 Powerstick review, you know that Samsung has completely revolutionized the way I clean, with this latest model being no exception to that.
The Jetbot Mop automatically cleans your floors with ease – perfect for tile, vinyl, laminate, or hardwood floors and even more perfect if you're a renter like me. Designed with two pads spinning at high rates of speed, allowing the unit to move, turn and clean simultaneously. Making this the top-of-the-line mop everyone needs. View Deal
4. This uplifting candle
Village Candle 'Brighter Days' for $19.95, at Stonewall Kitchen
I'm always on the hunt for the best candle, and when I spotted this Village Candle new release, I knew I met my match. Titled 'Brighter Days,' this candle is not only a part of their new 'Unity' collection, but the bright yellow shade and vanilla scent is the mood booster we all undoubtedly need.View Deal
5. This gorgeous griddle
Beautiful 11" Square Griddle Pan, Blueberry for $19.97, at Walmart
Not only does it come available in my two favorite colors (green and blue!), but it was the solution to mastering mornings. I can whip up Michelin-star-worthy meals in a matter of minutes. Plus, at just under-$20, it's impossible to beat. View Deal
6. This sensational set
Grecian Blue Ombre Glass Drinkware Set, 8 Piece by Drew Barrymore Flower Home for $25, at Walmart
Yes, I know another Drew Barrymore item, but I'm mentioning it for a good reason. This spring, it was time to update my previous glassware selection — which up until last week was this orange set — I figured it was time to make the change to this Grecian-inspired blue choice. At just $25, this set-of-8 looks far more expensive than it is and matches perfectly with my previously-mentioned griddle.
7. This two-toned towel
Super-Plush Towel Move-In Bundle l
Was $138, Now starting at $103.08, at Brooklinen
When it comes to towels, I'm picky: I want them soft and plush, but not too soft and plush, where they're ineffective, which so often happens. Here, Brooklinen's latest colorway not only exceeded my expectations color-wise but also hit the nail head-on with its balance of softness and effectiveness. The material is soft-to-touch while excelling at its sole purpose: to evaporate water, leaving you dry as ever, post-shower. View Deal
8. This down-feather pillow
Nestwell Down & Feather Bed Pillow starting at $32, at Bed Bath & Beyond
Certainly, we all know how game-changing a down comforter can be, so of course, when I saw a down feather pillow, I knew I needed to give it a go – and boy, am I glad I did. The medium-support is suitable for all types of sleepers, and the certified STANDARD 100 by OKEO-TEX material makes this the sustainable solution we all need.
9. This must have machine
H200 Easy Clean Slow Juicer for $699, at Hurom
I invested in a Hurom juicer about two years ago, and since it's one of the best investments I have made — until now. Hurom’s latest H200 Slow Juicer marries the Easy Clean chamber set with the Self-Feeding hopper, which now has an even larger inlet that can fit whole-sized apples. Less prep and less cleaning mean more time to enjoy fresh-squeezed juice — making it my *new* worthwhile investment.
