Reader Recs: K’s Faves

10321765_10154173471215367_628879929158350288_oDear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super-cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so it’s a no-brainer to feature some of their favorite products. Many of the recommended products happen to be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! Today’s recommendations come from K, who lives in the Hudson Valley region of NY. She “pretty much” lives with her artist boyfriend and enjoys hiking, kayaking, earth science, cats, Riesling, and really spicy food. Check out some of her favorite things below:

These flip-flops are cute because the straps are glittery, and they are amazingly comfortable. I wear them pretty much all summer! They are sturdy and hold up well.

I became curious about sheet masks a couple of months ago and purchased these. They are cooling and refreshing, and they make my face feel soft and supple for the entire rest of the day!

I first read this book a couple of years ago and adored it. It’s about a Southern plantation during the decades before the Civil War. I really connected with the characters, and the story kept me riveted. The author has just written a sequel, and I’m about to re-read this book before starting on the sequel.

This is my all-time favorite workout/hiking/other activity-where-you-get-sweaty shirt. It was the very first wicking shirt I bought, and my first one is still in great condition with no pilling. It’s light and comfortable and washes very well. I own this shirt in about five different colors, and I have a couple of the long-sleeved version as well.

These chocolate-covered cherries are my newest favorite addictive snack. They are so delicious! They’re rich, so I can eat just three or so and feel satisfied (if I can limit myself!).

Thanks, K!

If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at [email protected] with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line, please.) Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/explain what you love so much about it.

Follow along on Facebook, and Instagram.

      MG, at tutoring last night, I thought I saw a photo of you. I had to stop and look harder at it. It was at the Jesse White Community Center. I’m still not sure, but if it wasn’t, you have a doppelganger.

        I’ve heard about this doppelganger. She’s also a member of FFC but I think she goes to Union Station or West Loop. Or maybe it was Anne Hathaway.
        If it’s anything related to my University, then yes, I am still plastered all over their marketing material. I can’t think of anything I’ve done at the Jesse White CC, although there’s a possibility of something at Boys and Girls club

        Gonna be a little creepy for a sec, but Jesse White is Illinois, right? I have a dear friend from HS who looks like Anne Hathaway who lives in Chicago.

        It is IL. The place I tutor for moved into the new center last year. It’s great! Especially since a pic of MG is hanging on the walls. Kidding. Sort of.

        It would be a strange coincidence! It you have any dear HS friends who grew up in a near western suburb and upon graduation moved to NYC and never looked back, that’s me.

      Yes! I often try to justify buying new colors even though I already have a bunch.

    I have had that book on my amazon wish list for awhile. I am also in between books currently, so now I will get it! Thanks!
