“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:
Saw these in the grocery store a couple weeks and made an impulse purchase. Best impulse purchase ever, maybe. I bought them for Jackson, but I went back and bought two more packs just for me.
When I’m home, I basically like to not be wearing pants, and when I’m in bed, I especially want to be pantsless (Hi, Ramona!). Even lounge pants or PJ bottoms feel too restrictive for me, and nightgowns are either too matronly or too lingerie-ish to wear around my home. Enter: the world’s perfect nightshirt. If only I could get away with wearing it everywhere, all the time.
It’s coat season and maybe you’re realizing you need a new one. Shout-out to the coat I’ve been wearing for the last four of five seasons (well, this is the same brand and very similar). It’s warm without being bulky, it’s comfy and cozy, and at less than $200, the cost-per-wear over five years is pretty awesome. I also have two faux fur jackets I like to wear to mix it up (and eventually, I’d like to get a leather moto jacket, but I haven’t found one I love yet). If you’re in the market for a faux fur jacket, this one. (One of mine if from H&M last season and it’s sooo cozy).
So, I bought that damn brush Kate was raving about a few weeks back, and I promised I would report back with my impression. I think I don’t have the right type of hair, maybe, or the right lifestyle for this thing. Since I don’t go to work, I don’t have to look polished every day and I tend to blow dry my hair for five minutes with a round brush and feel put-together enough for my life of working at home, taking my toddler to music class, and picking my kindergartener up from school. I’m just not willing to spend more than five minute on my hair — even on a date night, I don’t want to spend more than 10 minutes on it — and with this brush, you need a solid 20 minutes at least to get the flat-iron look it’s known for. I guess that’s better than the 40 minutes a real flat iron might take, but it’s still 15 minutes too long for me. And, plus, I like my wavy hair, and don’t necessarily covet straight hair. But that’s just me. I think for the right person — i.e. someone like Kate — this is a game-changer. For me, it’s probably not going to get pulled out of the drawer more than a couple times a year.
We finally got rid of our side chair we’ve had for the past six years or so and had been torn to shreds by our cats. We got this replacement chair, and with a discount code on top of the sale price, it was kind of a steal. I love the color, the size is perfect for our small living room, and it’s incredibly comfortable.
Speaking of cats — we were, weren’t we? — how cute are these measuring cups?
I love these earrings. Love the price even more.
