(SPOT.ph) The start of a new month is always a reminder that there’s room in our lives to start fresh—take this time to set new goals for yourself, to leave the stress of the last few weeks behind, and to do things that make you feel good. Considering the mental and emotional rollercoaster that April was, we say spend May spoiling yourself silly—and if the way you choose to do that is with some retail therapy, we’re totally cheering you on. Even better, we went ahead and listed some cool new finds you can purchase now to satisfy your online shopping addiction and to boost your serotonin levels. This month, we spotted a stylish and budget-friendly coffee machine, nifty decor pieces and storage solutions for your home, a life-saving lotion that can relieve your back pain, and so much more.

If you’re a fan of MUJI’s popular Gel-Ink pens, you’ll want to add their new felt-tip pens to your stationery collection, too! While the Japanese brand’s gel pens feature a classic ballpoint design, these fine liners made with soft felt tips offer a slightly thicker stroke compared to typical metal ballpoints and require only gentle pressure to create clean lines with bright, vibrant pigmentation. They also give the user more control and versatility when writing, as the pressure and angles that you apply while writing can impact how your strokes will look. That makes them perfect for doodling on journals, decorating and color-coding notes, or just writing for longer periods with lighter pressure.

Few chores are as tedious and uninviting as dishwashing, and to help you make the process easier, we recently rounded up some nifty finds that can make dishwashing less of a pain. One of our fave picks from that list is this cool dishwashing brush from SK Mixes. It has its own water chamber that dispenses water onto the attached brush with the push of a button. That way, you don’t need to leave your faucet running while you wash. You can even change the head of the tool into a sponge depending on what would best suit the dish you’re cleaning.

If you’re slowly stocking up on #aesthetic coffee makers and brewing tools, you may want to consider adding Noon’s 15-Bar espresso machine to your wish list—especially if you’d rather not shell out tens of thousands on industrial devices. As with most espresso machines, it works by using pressure to push boiling water through finely ground coffee beans, resulting  in strong coffee with bold, full-bodied flavor. This brewing method is used by most of the coffee shops you would find around the Metro, which means you'll finally be able to brew a cup of coffee at par with your fave café's cup of joe. Though many popular espresso makers on the market feature a hefty design, Noon's take on the machine sports a much more compact build that would easily fit on your kitchen countertop or coffee nook. Plus, we love the device's sleek, vintage-style design. You can get it in seven pretty colors!
