As we roll into a switch in the seasons, there's nothing like a bit of online browsing just for you. Whether you're scheming for cosy winter outfits or a little glow-up for your apartment, or just cruising for some fresh skincare or a new autumn fragrance, there are plenty of new drops and fun things to shop right now. 

Here's what I'm shopping this month for under $150.

Inka Arthouse Hilma Af Klint Set Of 2 Art Prints

Price: From $120

After seeing the seminal Swedish artist's work in real life at the Hilma af Klint exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW last year, I've been searching for prints to hang up at home. The colour palette she used is incredible, and I love the mysterious symbols and shapes. Shop this duo here

Rose Inc. Skin Enhance Luminous Tinted Serum

Price: $73

Due to drop at MECCA on Tuesday 26 April, this skin tint is the latest from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's beauty brand Rose Inc. If you're a no-makeup makeup kind of person, and you really dig dewy, glowy skin, you're going to love this. More skincare than foundation, the coverage is sheer, delivered via suspended "pigment spheres" that melt into a light tint once you blend over your skin. It's also packed with hyaluronic acid and squalane to hydrate you throughout the day. Bottom line? Beautiful, glowy skin. Shop at MECCA after the release date or directly from Rose Inc

Afends Shining Recycled Oversized T-Shirt

Price: $60

Comfortable, versatile, and easy, you can't go wrong with an oversized t-shirt—and I'm obsessed with Byron Bay-based AFENDS' tees at the moment. This eco-friendly recycled cotton t-shirt was designed in collaboration with Canadian artist Victoria Sieczka. Shop here

Leif x Jac+Jac Laundry Everyday Laundry Wash

Price: $35

Laundry, but make it luxe? Jazz up your Sunday reset with this cute collab from Aussie brands Leif and Jac+Jack. Combining performance with recyclable packaging, the Everyday Laundry Wash is plant-based and uses essential oils like eucalyptus, cedarwood, blackcurrant, and tea tree. Shop here

Marc Jacobs The Bandeau

Price: $150

In the wake of the Y2k movement, Marc Jacobs has made a real comeback recently. I absolutely love the Gen Z-inspired Marc Jacobs "Heaven" sub label (check it out here), but I'm also vibing this lavender athleisure moment. Shop it before it sells out here

Hommey Picnic Stripes Towel

Price: $99

Hommey's pillows made a huge splash last year. The Melbourne brand launched during lockdown with a universe of cute cushions in bright colours and fabrics like bouclé and velvet. Now, they've entered the world of towels with a series of extra-large bath sheets made from organic Turkish cotton. Shop here

True Story: What Reality TV Says About Us, By Danielle J. Lindemann

Price: $48.75

Reality TV, and our weird fascination with it, has been a bit of a hot topic lately. Released just this month, this book from author Danielle J. Lindemann is a neat follow-on for listeners of the Harsh Reality podcast. This book gets stuck into why reality TV is everyone's guilty pleasure and how it both reflects and influences us. Personally, I can't do MAFS and Byron Baes but I do love the Kardashians. Go figure. Shop here

SSAINT Cosmic Bang Eau De Parfum

Price: $109

Hand-crafted in Sydney, SSAINT is the gender-neutral fragrance line everyone is talking about right now. With top notes of fig, bergamot, and bay leaf, and base notes of tobacco, I'm making "Cosmic Bang" my new autumn scent. Shop here

The First Astronomers: How Indigenous Elders Read The Stars

Price: $26.25

I'm fascinated by astronomy and space (who isn't)—so I'm super curious to learn about the importance the stars held for Australia's First Nations peoples. Guided by six First Nations Elders, Associate Professor of Cultural Astronomy in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne, Duane Hamacher, explores this precious wisdom and the idea that everything on the land is reflected in the sky. Shop here

Contour Cube

Price: $64.90

Ok, before you question whether this is just a $65 ice block mould, let me explain. Designed in Sydney by Sarah Forrai, this facial icing tool went viral on TikTok last year, and for good reason—there's nothing else quite like it. Its simplicity and durability make it friendlier than other ice facial tools, and it's easy to slide into your skincare routine. 30 seconds of icing will depuff your skin and reduce redness and inflammation. You can also experiment beyond ice too—try freezing lemon water for radiance or coconut milk for anti-aging. Shop here.
