Here at GRAZIA, a common question we get from our friends, family, and the fashion TikTok guy on the street of NYC (you know the one) is, “What are you obsessing over right now?” A question we never grow tired of and always enjoy answering whenever presented. Needless to say, as editors, we aren’t privy to our obsessions and love shedding light on our favorites across fashion, beauty, and culture. Whether it’s on our wishlist or already in our wardrobes, beauty shelves, etc. there’s one thing for sure — if we can’t get it out of our minds, it should surely be on yours, too.
Ahead, we introduce GRAZIA Editors’ Weekly Obsessions: a round-up of everything we’re mad about this week from exciting must-have fashion pieces, age-defying beauty products, songs to add to your Spotify list, and everything in between. Oh, and make sure to come back next week — there’s always something new we’re obsessing over.

This week I am obsessed with all things Randi Shinder — a beauty guru who has created an empire of brands with celebs including Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Sophia Bush, and more — and specifically her current company SBLA Beauty. SBLA Beauty is famous for its Neck, Chin & Jawline Sculpting Wand and Sculpting Wand XL aka the best-in-class beauty solution to combat aging skin (and spoiler alert, it doesn’t involve cosmetic surgery). These Sculpting Wands are the first-ever topical product proven to target and treat the neck area to melt fat under the chin, boost collagen production and generate millions of new skin cells while you sleep — and their formula is even backed by Harvard Medical research. Oh, and best of all, these skin saviors retail for under $130! Need I say more?

I’ve been a Tori Amos fan since I first discovered her music in high school in the late 90s—which is really the only appropriate time to discover Tori Amos’s music—so, of course, I was pretty eager to hear her latest album, Ocean to Ocean. It just came out, but I was lucky enough to get an advance stream last week and have been playing it on repeat. According to recent interviews, Amos had planned to release an album ahead of the 2020 US election but ended up shelving most of those songs and starting over. Ocean to Ocean was written and recorded when the singer-songwriter, who lives in Cornwall, hit a low point during the UK’s third pandemic lockdown. But the album is way more expansive and upbeat than the circumstances in which it was made might suggest. The vast majority of the tracks are elaborately produced, left-of-center pop songs that recall her mid-career work on albums like From the Choirgirl Hotel and Abnormally Attracted to Sin. In fact, this may be one of her least piano-forward albums to date; of the 11 tracks, there’s really only one spare piano ballad (“Flowers Burn to Gold”). I’m sure there will be diehard fans who will be disappointed that there’s not more quiet introspection on Ocean to Ocean, but I, for one, am enjoying it so far.

The overnight hair serum from R+CO BLEU’s latest launch would have to be my beauty obsession this week (and month!). Nothing beats some hair TLC and this leave in overnight masque does just the trick. I comb the masque through my hair after a shower and before bed once a week to repair from the constant blow drying and curling. Not only does it hydrate and moisture my hair while I sleep, I wake up with a silky shine ready to take on the day.
