“Wendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I highlight stuff I like or recommend in the worlds of fashion, gift ideas, home decor, makeup, websites, entertainment, and recipes. Of course, many of the things I link to will 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! Here are my favorite finds this week:
A couple weeks ago when I was in Missouri, I took Jackson to the mall because finding jeans to fit a super skinny tall boy is a made a little easier when you can hit a bunch of shops in one stop. While we were there, I made a quick pitstop in Sephora where I tried on a Le Clinique Chubby Stick. I’ve been wearing Le Clinique lip glosses for years and recommending them almost as long, but I’m a bit late to the “Chubby Stick.” Consider me sold! Like the lip glosses, the sticks come in lots of fun and bold colors, but they’re matte, and they have super strong staying power. (I put some on in the morning, and usually by mid-afternoon, after a couple cups of coffee, multiple glasses of water, and at least one full meal, the color is still going — see photo of me with Joanie above as an example.)
Oh, and we found jeans for Jackson at Old Navy, which is where I’ve always gotten his jeans (in addition to Gap and Target), but they must have changed their sizing recently because he outgrew his size 4s from last year but this year’s size 5s were enormous on him. At the mall, I had him try on some size 4s just to see, and they all fit (these are my fave). Not sure what I’ll do in a month after he grows another three inches, but I’ll cross that bridge later… (Fascinating, I know, but, if you happen to be the mom of a tall, skinny 4- or 5-year-old boy, this might be helpful info.)
Discovered Sandwich Thins over the summer and have been making the kids’ lunches (and sometimes my own) with them ever since. Can’t believe it took me three months to make sure you knew about them, too.
I found the perfect classic t-shirt the other day at Nordstrom Rack. It’s soft, thin, drapey without being clingy, and it looks cute front-tucked into a pair of classic jeans (found those, too, by the way).
And, introducing Five Under $5:
These feather earrings.
These cute socks with a subliminal message if you’re hoping to be proposed to.
Cute notebooks (set of 3).
