“Wendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I’ll 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 stuff 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:
Lancome High Definition Mascara
Bought this at Sephora a few weeks ago after I got tired of my drugstore mascara continually clumping. At $27, the Lancome High Definition mascara isn’t cheap, but I have LOVED the way it has lengthened and defined my lashes, with zero clumping. This is the one makeup item I wouldn’t leave home without putting on. Even if I’m just going out for a jog or to grab bread at the bodega on the corner. And buy “bread,” I mean money from the ATM because I am a 1960s boho gangsta.
Hotel Concept 500 tc Egyptian Cotton Sheet Set
Over the holidays, we stayed at my parents’ place for a few days and I loved the sheets we slept on in their guest room. Our own sheets back home were wearing out and we needed a new set, so when I got back I ordered from JC Penneys, where my mom said hers were from. I mistakenly ordered a different brand than what she has (hers are the Royal Velvet Wrinkle Guard sheets), but I like the set I got just as well. They’re super soft, thick, and feel substantial. Plus, they’re 50% off with code JANBUY52.
Dakine Women’s Mia Beanie
I bought this hat for myself a few weeks ago when I got tired of the one I’d been wearing for the last couple of winters sliding off my head. I but my hats from NYC street vendors for about 10 bucks, so this was a little bit more than that but totally worth it. No more slipping off my head! Plus, the brim is fleece-lined, so it’s extra cozy. And I’ve gotten lots of compliments on the color and style.
It’s ModCloth Monday and everything in the store is 15% off today with code GOOGLY. I like this sweater, this beautiful dress (especially if you have a beachy vacation coming up), this dress for your Valentine’s Day dinner date, ooh or this one, and this awesome cardigan (which I think I’m going to have to buy).
Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Gelato
OMG OMG OMG. I bought this on a whim last week at the grocery store when our local ice cream shop closed for renovations because I have to have ice cream, and, holy shit, it’s a life-changer. I’ve made everyone who has come over to our place in the last few days try at least a spoonful and they all agree: it’s the bomb. Available in most stores that sell Gelato Fiasco (it is anything but a fiasco).
