Wendy’s Picks

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! On this rainy Monday, here are a few things that have my attention:


These earrings.

It’s a little late to order this shirt for Halloween, but I love it.

Coffee is my love language.

I want to lighten things up in our new place, so I’m thinking about a coffee table like this one for our livingroom.

As I mentioned in the weekend open thread, I picked up this new memoir at the library and I read most of it over the weekend (it’s a short read) and it’s very good: beautifully written, devastating, and hopeful. A filmmaker is diagnosed with ASL and given four years to live. Despite losing almost all motor functions, and being encouraged to refuse ventilation (thereby, effectively ending his life), he chooses to live (and live fully). It’s a conscious decision and fight he makes daily, arguing that it’s not how long you live but how you live.

Amy Sedaris has a new “comedy lifestyle” series, “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” on truTV. As you might imagine if you’re familiar with her (“Strangers with Candy,” I Like You, the show is weird, quirky, and hilarious.

    I love Amy Sedaris! I will check out the show.

    And I love that coffee table…reminds me of a tray on which one would serve breakfast in bed.

      Shortly after I moved to Chicago, my mom, sisters, aunt and I went to see “Book of Liz” by Sedaris at this little theater in Chicago called Chemically Imbalanced. It was the best play! And even more fitting is the theater was BYOB + under construction and looked like we might get murdered at any moment. We didn’t have cups for our wine, so were passing a bottle between the five of us.

      Ahh, I have fond memories of that play and that theater.
