“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:
I was looking for some skinny corduroy pants and saw these on sale and purchased a pair and they’re my new favorite thing — super comfy and soft, no annoying waist-gap, and I love the color (I got the “Zinfandel,” because wine). I found that they run a little big, so try sizing down. I usually wear a size 10, but an 8 fit perfectly and that’s not ’cause I’ve been avoiding bread and booze this season.
Yes, these earrings are pricey (even 30% off), but since they could basically be your entire New Year’s Eve outfit, they’re kind of worth it, right?
Drew and I love watching comedy specials and we recently caught the Michael Che (SNL) special, Michael Che Matters (available on Netflix), and it’s fucking hilarious and thought-provoking. Like old school Eddie Murphy, he delivers big laughs while discussing hot button topics like race relations, homophobia, guns, religion. ““We can’t even agree on Black Lives Matter,” says the former Daily Show correspondent. “‘All Lives Matter’? That would be like if your wife came up to you and was like, ‘Do you love me?’ And you were like, ‘Baby, I love everybody, what are you talking about?’”
I never thought I’d be excited about packing tape of all things, but I’ve been wrapping up a lot of packages this month, and this stuff stuff has preserved what’s left of my sanity on at least a few occasions in the last couple weeks. You don’t need scissors! You just tear it. Revolutionary!
Jackson and I both share a love of ginger cookies, which are especially seasonal this time of year. Our favorites are these and these (perfect with some chai tea, Mmmm), which we’ve been eating a lot of lately.
My mom got Joanie this bubble gum pink floral sweatshirt, which is not something I would have picked out for her myself, but it’s totally adorable and Joanie loves it (if she knew more words, I am sure she’d be saying “Cozy and warm!”), so if you have a tiny little girl in your life, maybe make her day and give her this (bonus: it’s marked down from $36 to $10).
Here’s a picture of Kate (posted with her permission). She says: “Left is air drying, middle is what it looks like dry and curly, right is after using the brush.”
