#EditorPicks: 7 Fab Products On Our November Musts List

By Edit Seven

Can you believe that we’re just a few short weeks away from the holidays and the end of the year?! Normally we might shed a tear that the months have started to fly by but in the case of 2020, we’ll make an exception. We all know that with a new month come new opportunities, exciting changes and as always, a new round of #EditorPicks from our team.

Keep reading for what #TeamE7 is loving this month!

“It may be November, but the discovery of this new monthly wine subscription has got me singing “All I want for Christmas is… Eight Kilos!” I mean, what could be a better gift than great wine dropped off at your door on the regular? Delivering six-bottle wine boxes once a month, I love that Eight Kilos gives members access to hard-to-find wines – from classic producers to multi-generational independent farmers – including wineries like Domaine de Beaurenard, Vietti, Dominio do Bibei and Sandhi. This definitely seems like the best way to treat yo’ self while spending so much time at home. Bonus: They’ve also got newly launched gift boxes that are ready and waiting to be sent to wine-loving friends and family.” – @GracieCarroll

You’re probably most familiar with Claire Saffitz for her former hit YouTube series, Gourmet Makes, where she attempts to re-create our favourite junk food into a high-end creation. Because of that series, Saffitz became a ‘hero’ as she simply and easily deconstructed tough recipes into something fun and easy. In her first-ever cookbook, Dessert Person: Recipes and Guidance for Baking with Confidence she includes everything your sweet-tooth would desire from cakes, cookies, pies, and fancy desserts. What I was most impressed with which I personally have never seen in a cookbook is that she’s included a recipe matrix that breaks down the degrees of difficulty and time between each recipe, so you can assess your confidence going into it. Plus, if that wasn’t enough: scattered throughout the book are helpful tidbits Saffitz has picked up on her time as a recipe developer such as how to fill a pastry bag properly, or how to properly brown butter. If you’re looking to do some holiday baking, or know someone with a sweet tooth, this book is definitely for them!” – @AmaScriver

“Assuming that outdoor winter sports and activities will be one of the safest ways to socialize and stay active in the coming months, I’m thinking my usual masks might not cut it in the cold. That’s why I’m super excited to try this ear-to-ear winter wrap face mask, which is essentially like a neck warmer, face mask and pair of earmuffs all rolled into one. The masks are made in Toronto (yay!) and feature a wool-blend exterior with a soft bamboo-rayon lining, flexible nose wiring, adjustable elastics behind the ears, and a Velcro closure. Pre-orders available at mayerofficial.com.” – @SarahDzdzc

If dark circles are the bane of your existence (aren’t they everyone’s?) then run, don’t walk to your nearest beauty store to get your hands on the Make Up For Ever Self-Setting Concealer. This concealer is literally a magic wand that with the swift flick of the wrist hides even the most stubborn dark spots and acne scars as well as pesky dark circles. I’ve been blessed with hereditary dark circles and before trying this concealer had to apply a series of foundations, under-eye concealers, and powders just to make a minimal difference but not anymore. The formula isn’t heavy but you bet it’s full coverage and it blends like an absolute dream. Finally, my skin looks like actual skin!” – @BlairAlex

“I love this oversized gold chain bracelet from the Indigenous-owned jewellery company Lofttan. It can be a bold statement piece but it also goes with absolutely everything. It’s truly a staple accessory. PS: it also comes in silver!” – @JordanaColomby

Anastasia Barbuzzi, Contributing Editor

“Though the weeks leading up to Christmas can be overwhelming with new product launches and limited edition items for the holidays, these soulful ornaments by Toronto-based artist Oksana Berda were a welcome treat. Inspired by “sea glass on the beach”, their hollow, fluid shapes are kind of groovy but are also reminiscent of Berda’s serene watercolour paintings. I love the different shades of blue and emerald she steeped them in too. Whether you thread some through your garland or decorate your tree with a variety of styles, these ornaments can create a wonderfully balanced contrast to the sparkled and bedazzled objects on your centrepiece and around your home.” – @AnastasiaBarbuzzi

I adore Botanica candles (I’ve never smelled one that didn’t make me swoon), and I love this concept: WAP (wet ass peaches) limited edition candle to benefit sex workers rights legal services. It smells like peach, hot sriracha, and mandarin. The best part: When guests ask what smells so divine, you can tell them it’s WAP. A conversation starter, indeed.” – @Kait_Fowlie
