“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:
Anthropologie is having a 20% off sale through the weekend on their tops and sweaters (use code TOPITOFF at checkout). I like this, this, this, this, this poncho, and this reminds me so much of my college days in the mid-90s (so do these, except they’re about ten times more than anything I ever bought in college). Also, this is one of the most beautiful blouses I’ve ever seen.
Joanie will be four months old this weekend, which means it’s just about time for my hair to start falling out. (For those who aren’t aware, most people lose an average of about 100 strands of hair a day, but when you’re pregnant, your hair stops falling out, and then a few months postpartum, all the hair that would have fallen out during those nine months falls out in sudden and dramatic fashion, clogging shower drains and filling dustpans no matter how often you sweep). Anyway, my hair will need a little more attention in coming weeks, which is why I stocked up on my old favorites, Cat Walk Root Boost (seriously, this stuff is amazing!), and Bed Head Foxy Curls. Highly recommend both, even if you aren’t losing hair, and especially if you have wavy to curly hair.
I started cooking salmon this way and I seriously don’t know why I waited so long or why everyone isn’t eating baked salmon every night for dinner. So easy (5 minutes of prep work) and so delicious.
I can’t remember if I’ve recommend this before, but this is my favorite mascara. Totally worth the splurge price. And this is the liquid eyeliner I’ve been using for a few months (I’ve been a liquid liner junkie for about five years and have tried lots of different ones) and I really like it. I’m not very steady with my hand, but this liner always goes on smoothly and has been the easiest for me to use.
Adele has a new album out! Can’t wait for all the karaoke spots to add this one to their songbooks.
My boot debate continues. I bought these a few weeks ago, per your guys’ encouragement, but I didn’t like the way they fit and decided to send them back. So, now I’ve narrowed my selection to a whole new set and I need your help again choosing a pair (or maybe even two). Keep in mind, I walk a lot (at least 3-8 miles a day, according to my iPhone app) and generally wear the same 2-3 pairs of shoes for six months straight, so I need something comfortable and practical while also being cute and stylish, too. I don’t mind paying a little extra for quality, not that any of the boots I selected are super pricey, but you get the point. Okay, I’ve narrowed it down to the Steve Madden So-Good, the Kork-Ease Velma (very similar to my favorite, now-discontinued DV boots from a few years ago), the Latino Sonoma, the Bussola Reed (least my style, but I like them anyway), and the Lucky Brand Harpiee (these don’t have any reviews though and I get the feeling they may not hold up through months of regular and hard wear). What do you think?
