Five Treats For Springtime Bliss

by Lisa Butterworth

Spring weather is here to stay, and our BUST team is sharing our recommendations on five products that can improve your home and social life. 

Sleep Tight

As a large person who sleeps beside another large person, I can’t rely on just any mattress to get my beauty rest. I need structure, stability, and support that goes above and beyond, and Big Fig (from $1099, bigfigmattress.com) definitely fits the bill. This heavenly chunk of heavy-duty foam supports up to 1,100 pounds, keeps me cool, and it’s firm and stable all the way to the edge. Now I finally have a bed fit for a queen-size queen! –Emily Rems

Friend Finder

Friendship is hard—making friends, keeping friends, breaking up with friends—yet we hardly ever talk about it. Musician/comedian/writer LaneMoore’s new tome,You Will Find Your People: How to Make Meaningful Friendships as an Adult (Abrams), is like a handbook for shaping your chosen family, with enough personal anecdotes to feel intimate, and enough advice to make it real-world applicable. –Lisa Butterworth


Fill Me Up, Butter Cup

Ever since the Middle Ages, the French butter crock, or butter bell, has been the ultimate kitchen hack. Pack the simple ceramic top with butter and place it on the water basin, sealing off any pesky oxygen that will make your butter go bad. Leave it on the counter and voilà, spreadable butter whenever you need it for up to 30 days! I know it sounds weird, but it works, whether you get an inexpensive version (Mrs. Anderson’s Baking Butter Keeper, $12.99, thebakerspin.com) or a fancy one (Le Creuset Butter Crock, $44, surlatable.com).–Laurie Henzel

Decked Out

If you’re into tarot, you know the deep symbolism the cards contain. Color Your Own Tarot ($21.99, Laurence King Publishing) lets you put your own spin on their sorcery with some color magic. The kit contains a customizable black-and-white version of the classic Rider-Waite deck, along with a tarot guide (by BUST editor Lisa Butterworth!) to get you going. –Laurie Henzel

Transcendent Treats

As a cookie connoisseur, I don’t know how Brown Butter Cookie Company’s divine morsels escaped my consciousness for so long, but now thatI know their sweet and salty goodness, I’m a devotee. Thankfully, the California-based, sister-owned brand ships all their flavors (including cocoa, espresso, and spice variations on the original brown butter sea salt) nationwide ($20 for a dozen, brownbuttercookies.com) –Lisa Butterworth
