Big congratulations are in order for longtime couple Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. The couple took to their respective Instagram accounts this morning to announce their engagement, which, judging by the myriad of heart-shaped balloons in the background, appeared to have happened on Valentine’s Day. And the gemstone in Katy Perry’s engagement ring was certainly in keeping with the theme. Bloom gave her a stunning ruby and diamond ring that resembles a flower, a detail that we’re quite sure the fun-loving musician adored.

Colored gemstones have long been a celebrity favorite, with the most recent fellow celeb to receive one being Heidi Klum, who is joined by Kate Middleton, Penelope Cruz, Olivia Wilde, and Zoe Saldana, to name a few. While not quite as durable as diamonds, colored gemstones are the go-to way to make an engagement ring feel unique and special. Keep scrolling to see the ring up close, and shop similarly stunning ruby engagement rings.

Do the words “spring cleaning” mean anything to you? The impending change of season is the perfect excuse to do an inventory of your home (and make some practical upgrades while you’re at it). Of course, there’s pretty much no place better to look for affordable home items than IKEA, whether you want to finally get rid of your wire hangers or find a sleek storage solution for all of your new shoe purchases. To help you source through the retailer’s overwhelming selection, I tapped my fellow editors to offer their expert picks.

Our editor in chief, Kat Collings, has some ideas if you’re looking to organize your necklaces and miscellaneous items like buttons and safety pins—for a mere $25, I might add. Meanwhile, managing editor Kristen Nichols found the perfect #OOTD mirror, and market editor Nicole Eshaghpour sourced the ideal coat rack to avoid cluttering your entryway. Scroll down to see all the items our fashion and beauty editors would buy at IKEA—your home will thank you. 

“Every winter, our apartment suddenly starts overflowing with coats. This stand might just help me keep them off of all our chairs!”
“I’ve found myself with a few too many pairs of shoes these days, and while I hate having to stack them, these boxes will not only keep them organized but will also protect them from getting ruined.”
“I would use these pretty coordinated containers to hold safety pins, extra buttons, and fashion tape.”
“Perfect for hanging the necklaces you wear every day.”
“I like to pack away seasonal items in storage boxes that I slide under my bed.”
“Wire hangers are not a good look, guys. These chic solid wood hangers will do your clothes justice.” 
“This mini ironing board is perfect for small-space dwellers because it can be hung in a hallway closet.” 
“I can personally attest that this floor-length mirror is perfect for outfit selfies since I have it in my apartment. Here’s the evidence.”
“I love this brass tray for organizing beauty products and candles.”
“I love hoarding candles and have a specific weakness for this combo of lavender, honey, and wood.”
“I love succulents because they’re an easy and low-maintenance way to add a pop of green and decoration to any space.”
“I’m currently looking to spruce up my bedroom side table, and this cool brass clock will definitely be replacing my boring digital one.”
“I have this thing with plates! These vintage-looking floral side plates will add charm and interest to my dining table for upcoming dinner parties.”
“Extra storage? A place to put my current favorite garments on display? Or better yet, both.”
“One of the defining characteristics of my apartment is the myriad of houseplants that greet you upon entry. This watering can is both functional for obvious reasons is also chic and fun to look at. Win-win.”
“During the winter, I find that I end up throwing my coats everywhere instead of shoving them back into my closet. Yes, I know—horrible habit. I want these wall hooks to hang right inside my doorway so I can hang the coats that I wear the most like a normal person.”
“I love having blankets all over my apartment. This one is the perfect subtle background addition to any mirror outfit pic I may take in my room and certainly looks cozy.”

Presidents’ Day weekend is as a good a time for a massive sale as ever. Seeing as the holiday falls in late February before the massive wave of spring shopping ensues, retailers and brands all over the internet are dropping prices like mad trying to rid their stock to make room for all that the next season has to offer. What does that mean for you, dear shopper? It means that mega e-tailer and rising fashion destination Amazon is listing dozens of deals n’ steals (my words, not theirs) across its site for the upcoming holiday weekend. Thanks, Amazon.

As a social media editor, I spend a lot of time on Instagram. I mean a lot of time—so much so that I’m afraid to even look at my iPhone screen time app for fear of shame. But, hey, it is my job, after all. Given the amount of time I spend on the app, it’s safe to say I come across more than my fair share of cool looks, pieces, and Instagram shops that have me hitting the save button to add to my personal saved collection.

The constant discovery does lead to quite a bit of shopping (hazard of the job), so I figured I should share the wealth and let you guys in on my recent finds. From the $20 leopard piece seen in fashion week street style to the pearl hair clips I can’t stop drooling over, below you’ll find the 15 best things from my feed this week. You’re welcome, or I’m sorry, depending on how you look at it. Happy shopping! 

Pearl hair clips are trending hard on the ‘gram right now. #Hairfies are the new #shoefies. 

These look significantly more expensive than they are.

Pearls aren’t just for hair in 2019. 

If these are good enough for street style at NYFW, I’m sold. 

Plays well with leopard. 

An evening bag that’s anything but boring. 

We’re still not over the cowboy boot trend, and these Paris Texas beauties feel fresh. 

Top-handle bags are a major 2019 trend, and this Staud number feels classic and directional at the same time. 

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate this Chanel necklace.

The ultimate layering piece.

These are party shoes if I’ve ever seen some. 

This year is the year of the anti-skinny jean.

Teddy coats are everywhere, but this reversible one wins for coziest. 

If I could only live in one denim brand for the rest of my life, it would be Re/Done. 

A pearl crop top is something I never knew I needed, but now I can’t stop thinking about. 

Fringe + leather = my dream jacket. 

Last summer’s It shoe just got a very glamorous makeover. 

Orseund Iris is the brand that has fashion girls buzzing—and this corset is just beyond cool.

This ’90s style tank is back and better than ever. 

Came through drippin’. 

This stone looks stunning layered with gold chains. 

I mean, the name of these Jimmy Choos says it all.
