“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, much 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! The theme of my picks this week is something you’re probably seeing everywhere right now (I sure am):
I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s now been many months since we bought our Leesa mattress and I’m still loving it. It’s perfect, and when I do get sleep (Joanie, at almost two years old, is only finally starting to sleep through the night!), it’s the best, deepest sleep ever. Do you have a Leesa mattress? Do you love it, too? Use code SPRING100 (through tomorrow) and save $100 on a mattress.
In the last couple of weeks, Jackson’s gotten into two games that we are having a lot of fun playing with him in the evenings before bed. This is one I suggested to my sister to get him for this past holiday season. (I can’t remember if it was a Christmas gift or a Hanukkah gift as we celebrate both, and so does my sister who converted to Judaism a few years ago.) Anyway, he loves it (and I think it’s a great modern twist on a classic we all grew up on). The other game is also a classic. I remember playing Memory with my mom all the time when I was Jackson’s age, and now he seems to love it as much as I did, which is really fun. This is the edition he picked out, because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, I guess. But there are lots of different editions, for different personalities and interests. I think this will be my go-to gift for 5th and 6th birthday parties for a while. (I like the Ebboo brand because the themes and art are cool.)
Over the weekend, my bestie, Chad, came to visit from Chicago, bringing some gifts for the kids and for me and Drew, including this face cream from the hippie brand, Uncle Harry’s. It has an interesting smell that might not be for everyone, but I really like it, and the cream itself is pretty awesome. It’s thick and goes on a little greasy, but it’s absorbed by the skin immediately and is like a big glass of water for your complexion. I especially like to rub it into my neck creases and crow’s feet and watch them disappear.
Chad also brought along this sleek weekend bag for his visit — something that might be a great gift for the dad(s) in your life this upcoming Father’s Day.
We’re going on a beach vacation in a few weeks, and I’m looking for a new swimsuit to bring along. This one is not going to work for me or any of my big-breasted sisters who don’t want to accidentally flash everyone, but on the right body type I think it would be so timeless and hot. Use code SHOPNOW for 25% off at JCrew.
I may not have found a new suit yet, but I ordered this maxi dress that I thought could double as a cover-up at a post-beach day casual dinner with the family. Use code SOGOOD for 40% off your purchase at the Gap.
