Hive members, this is not a drill. In celebration of the birth of your queen, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles Carter, mother of future dragons Blue Ivy, Sir and Rumi and wife of “that man,” online marketplace eBay has blessed us with a shopping list—and online shop!—to celebrate the day.
And they’ve done it with care: After all, Bey drives sales wherever she deigns to flip one of her famous wigs—and eBay has been keeping track. Yellow dresses, “Kale” sweatshirts and even black leotards and bodysuits have seen major bumps after being featured in the Queen’s iconic videos. So in the spirit of impulse buys, the site has come up with a few way for you to pay homage on Bey’s special day.
Want to carry hot sauce in your bag (assuming you don’t already) but are afraid of spills? Get extra spicy on your “Telephone” with an ‘Extra Spicy Hot Sauce’ iPhone 7 case ($11.50). Or maybe you’re still wanting to master that “Single Ladies” choreography? The moves are all laid out for you on canvas with this iCanvas “Ultimate Guide to Single Ladies” print by Nour Tohme ($44.94)—which might be adorning my walls any day now. Real talk.
Meanwhile I love a double-entendre, so discovering that “Drunk in Love” coasters ($22.99) exist pretty much made my Bey Day—and next cocktail party—complete. But if you’re into a less subtle statement, an “I Woke Up Like This” neon sign ($184.99) is a vivid daily reminder that you’re “Flawless.”
Of course, what we’re really into here at The Glow Up is fashion, and if you’re feeling like recreating a couple of Queen Bey’s recent looks, a “Formation”-inspired hat ($50.29) and Miu Miu shades ($219.00) are the perfect set of summer-ending accessories, while a “Kale” sweatshirt ($64.00) feels like exactly the back-to-cool moment we’re trying to slide into this fall.
But if, like me, you’re just waxing nostalgic to hear “Lemonade” on repeat today, you could always just buy the album on vinyl ($23.50).
Happy Birthday, Bey!
