Here Are Some Semi-Extravagant Things You Can Buy Online Right Now

Time to get fancy.

By Brynn Wallner

After this past year, it’s okay to find yourself yearning for a little extravagance. Yes, we are all for living smartly and responsibly, but we must not forget to treat ourselves! So, we’ve put together a list of things you can buy online right now that are the best kind of extra. After all, a little retail therapy goes a long way. Like, what if you’re still upset about the fact that your summer trip to Italy got cancelled? And what if you’re upset that you’re upset because there are so many other important things going on in the world?

Well, honey, don’t beat yourself up.

International travel is still on ice right now, but the next best thing could be a gorgeous coffee table book that mentally takes you to the Amalfi Coast. Aside from a “mentally, I’m here” situation, turning your fantasies into reality can be easier than you think. It’s just a matter of leveling up the everyday – like ditching your now-raggedy face mask for one that’s silky smooth, or feeding your dog pet-friendly macarons when you want to feel like a French princess. Baby steps!
