For this edition of Bustle's Most Wanted, we asked our Rule Breakers to share the items that help them break the rules, or are boundary-bending on their own.
"I'm really into the holistic stuff, and so I do oils and I have a diffuser. I got this idea because I worked a Selena Gomez concert, and my job was to carry her diffuser around behind her. She has lupus, so she has trouble with anxiety and depression, and she uses oils to calm herself before she goes onstage."
Bustle Recommends: Vitruvi Stone Diffuser, $119
"CoCo~Shea skin products are all organic. [The brand] is run by a Muslim woman small business owner who works on each product by hand."
Activated Charcoal Body Scrub, $10
"I love Usborne books for teaching my kids to read! They focus on teaching reading through phonetics and we have had great success with this method!"
"We live in a time when people are constantly speaking over one another, often without realizing it. For someone who is naturally soft-spoken, like myself, it can be quite intimidating. Now, when I'm going to be in an already loud environment, I have more control over being heard. If someone attempts to talk over me, I just gradually turn up the volume until they get the point, shut the hell up, and listen."
WinBridge Wireless Voice Amplifier for Teachers, $63
"I love a good sneaker. These are the ones I wear on stage performing."
Wmns Dunk Sky Hi Sp 'Liquid Gold', $1250
"I carry hot sauce in my purse. But even going to galas — where it’s red carpet, black-tie gowns — I will put hot sauce in my bag and I will bust it out at the table, and I don’t care. I need my food to taste good. Tapatio is the one I carry in my purse."
Tapatio Salsa Picante Hot Sauce, $2.33
"I think it's so rule breaking because I have a very close relationship with my family, but nobody lives nearby. It is a very good way to have that connection with the people that you care about most — family, friends, whoever it is — and have a moment where you can feel like it's not just a text.It's not just a phone call. You are there and you're present and you can't be also watching TV at the same time. You are connecting with that other person."
"A Squatty Potty, which is a stool you put in front of the toilet to change your body position so it makes it easier for you to poop."
Squatty Potty The Original Bathroom Toilet Stool, $24.99
"They are amazing for walking meetings."
Beats Studio3 Wireless Over‑Ear Headphones, $349.50
"Lunapads period boxers are something I recommend to anyone who is looking for masculine-affirming periodwear. When I’m bleeding, the Lunapads boxers almost make me forget I’m on my period. They’re also a rule-breaking brand anyway, having featured and hired trans and gender nonconforming folks since before our identities were considered 'trendy.'"
Boxer Brief, $31.99 (Size XS - 3 XL)
