Better Bets: Sunsational Summer Finds

Bloomingdale’s Forty Carrots fro-yo-to-go

A curbside fro-yo? Yes, please! After three long months of quarantine, New Yorkers can once again enjoy Bloomingdale’s legendary frozen yogurt. Bloomies’ 59th Street flagship store has made it convenient to enjoy their frozen treat, while keeping socially distant, at their forty carrots truck. The truck will be located on Third Avenue, between 59th and 60th Streets, until July 25th.

Verloop Knits

Since your office goes wherever you go these days, why not dress up your laptop or tablet with a fun and functional case from Verloop? These colorful, padded cases have a microfiber lining that protects and cleans screens. Choose from a variety of folkweave knits. Laptop case, $60; Tablet Case, $50


They can’t all be sunny days ahead, but little girls won’t mind splashing around in summer showers in these Wellie rain boots from Bonpoint. These lemon-scented boots are a joint collaboration between Bonpoint and Lemon Jelly. Kids will love pairing these transparent, plastic boots with colorful socks to brighten up a rainy day.  $140


Enjoy delicious and healthy grilled foods, no matter what the weather, and even if you don’t have outdoor space. The Philips Smoke-less Indoor Grill cooks with up to 80% less smoke, using advanced infrared burners. Cleanup is so easy, you might want to use it every day. Simply wipe the non-stick cast aluminum grill clean or place all of the removable parts in the dishwasher. $279


Mascara L’Obscur from Gucci may become your next makeup obsession. The buildable formula is very black, giving great length, curl and volume. The thin-tipped brush allows you to define even the tiniest lashes and, perhaps most importantly, it stays put, without flakes or smudges, all day long.  The classic pink and gold signature Gucci tube is beautiful to look at as well.  $35
