Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so when a commenter suggested I create a regular feature for them to recommend some of their favorite products, it was a no-brainer, and Reader Recs was born. Today’s recommendations come from ktfran who is a single gal living in what she thinks is the best city in the world, Chicago. A beer enthusiast, or beer snob as most of her friends would say, she spends her free time checking out the local food and drink scene. When she’s not imbibing or feasting, Katie is running and, more recently, taking yoga classes, reading or curling up on the couch and watching “Justified,” “Parks and Rec” and silly teen movies. Check out some of her faves below.
I finally got this for Christmas and have been making soup nearly every Sunday since.
I started reading Louise Penny over the summer, and I fell in love with Chief Inspector Gamache and the village of Three Pines. I’m currently up-to-date on the series and haven’t been disappointed yet.
I’m a huge fan of this bag. Everything fits inside. And it looks good.
These jeans will change your life, I kid you not. They last forever and don’t lose shape or fade. [These are the same jeans LBH raved about in our first Reader Recs.]
Best face product ever. I love anything from Kiehl’s, but this especially. The cream lasts me around 10 months and I don’t need to use foundation or powder over it. Seriously, try it.
I want this, but I rent. I think it’s adorable. And how great is it not to write your return address when mailing Christmas cards and thank yous?
