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 Lyra, who is a 20-something Minnesota native living near Minneapolis with her cat, Opal (pictured here). She is a music teacher who loves music (duh), reading, snuggling with fuzzy animals, crocheting, and visiting Minnesota State Parks. She has also recently delved into running, and she ran her first 5k in July! Keep reading for her recommendations.
My friend has these and absolutely loves them. They are on my wish list because they look so awesome. These are perfect for those of us who rent! They are stick-on tiles that can be removed using a hairdryer. I want to make a backsplash for both my kitchen and my bathroom sinks.
Organix Moroccan Argan Oil
Shout out to DWer Kate for recommending this to me originally! It’s so great. It helps smooth my naturally wavy hair with no blow drying or straightening, and, if I do straighten it, my hair is so silky smooth and bouncy.
Da Bird cat toy
My cat really loves this toy! It helps her to get a good amount of exercise, which is necessary around my small apartment.
Automatic pet feeder
If your pet is a gobbler and you want him or her to get consistent, smaller meals throughout the day, this is the feeder for you! My cat is a gobbler. She would clear any dish in a heartbeat, so this works really well to help regulate her meals.
Cherry Blossom Tree Light
Mood lighting at its finest. This light is such a cool addition to my apartment’s decor! It also has a timer so that it comes on automatically.
If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at email@example.com with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line, please). Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online — and I would love it if at least two items could be found on Amazon where I am an affiliate. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/explain what you love so much about it.
