Wendy’s Picks

Wendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I highlight stuff I like or recommend in fashion, gift ideas, home decor, makeup, websites, entertainment, and recipes. Some of the recommendations are affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the links. Thanks for your support!

We have an empty space on our wall I’ve spent months thinking about how to fill. When I saw this 2 Tier Hanging Air Plant Holder by accident in a random Craigslist search for something unrelated, I knew this was what we needed. I love that it’s a unique and beautiful way to display more plants in our living room/dining area.

When I made this cheeseboard a couple weeks ago, my favorite thing on it was broken-up pieces of this chocolate, which I hadn’t tried before and which was so good I almost cried.

I’m in love with these earrings. (And I really like the message of these!).

The other day Kate, our resident beauty product expert, mentioned how much she loves Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, and then the next day I was flipping through US Weekly while Jackson was getting a haircut and there was a feature about Meghan Markle’s favorite products and Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is mentioned with a quote saying that, for volume, she mists it with her hair pushed forward and then “flips it back hard.” So, there you go.

If you’re a fan of stand-up comedy and you are not yet familiar with John Mulaney or you haven’t watched his newest Netflix special, Kid Gorgeous, do yourself a huge favor and get acquainted. The former SNL writer, who wears a suit and keeps his comedy so clean you could watch with your baptist grandmother, is GOLD.

    1000x yes to John Mulaney.
    He is my favourite comic that I have ever seen.

    I second (third?) the Texturizing Spray. I love the stuff and it lasts a long time! I don’t use it every day, but in my defense, I’ve been choosing to sleep an extra 20 minutes every morning instead of blow-drying my hair.

      I was able to not wash my hair from Saturday to Thursday even in this warm weather, because it kept it from getting flat and dirty. You can really go to town with it too, for styling and volume.

      I love this stuff, too. I got a sample size in a Birchbox awhile ago and often reach for this instead of dry shampoos. Even the small size lasted me a good, long while and I’m at the point where I need to repurchase.

    I love that two-tier plant holder. I’m moving into a new unit in my building in a couple weeks, and going to bookmark them for after I’ve moved.

      A lot of good stuff like that for not too pricey on Urban Outfitters in their Apartment section. Somehow I ran across it one day and it has some really surprisingly cute stuff. Never would’ve thought they sold so much home stuff.
