“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! Here are my favorite finds this week:
I brought the family back to Chicago last week for a little visit, and while we were there, my friend Katy brought over a couple bags of this to our Airbnb to share with everyone, and oh my God. So good! I noticed some different varieties in the check-out line at the grocery store back in Brooklyn a few days later and got a few to try, and while they’re all delicious, the blueberry and acai remains my favorite. (By the way, Canadian and UK readers, are the links bringing you directly to the Canada and UK Amazon sites now? They should be, so let me know if it’s working!)
I’ve been using the same cream blush for years and always loved it until recently. I don’t know if it’s a change in the oils of my skin or the sunscreen I use under makeup or what, but lately my cream blush has been streaky and blotchy and so I switched to this powder blush and it’s perfect — shimmery, glowy, and a very natural sun-kissed peachy, pink color (I got two different shades: Deep Throat and Super Orgasm, which, woah, why such super-sexual names for some blush?!)
Guys, it’s almost Labor Day, which means summer is almost over, which means it’s almost jacket season. Can I suggest a few cute ones, like this, this, this (44% off through Monday; update: it’s sold out! Here’s a similar one from the same brand, but not on sale, unforch), and this (5-star reviewed and 40% off) through Monday? Ooh, and if you want to splurge, this is super hot.
I splurged on these sandals during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale earlier this summer, and I’m so glad I did. I wear them almost every day, they’re so comfortable, and I get compliments on them all the time. And note, if you’re in the market for some solid, end-of-the-season sandals that will carry you through next summer, too, that these are on sale again now.
I bought this for a couple of friends and they were really psyched. (Inspired by this, which is fantastic).
