I’m loving this hydrogel eye mask that helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. It feels relaxing to wear, and it’s pretty much the coolest-looking mask I’ve worn since I dressed up as Casper the Friendly Ghost in 1981. And it works!
I made this corn salad yesterday when we had friends over for dinner and it was a crowd-pleaser. I am debating making it every day for the rest of the summer, it was that good.
Madewell is having a sale of 30% off of sale prices, which means this lovely tote is now marked down from $158 to $87.
I bought this dress for myself for the summer and it’s quickly become my favorite thing to wear on a hot day. I get compliments on it all the time. It’s on sale at Bloomingdales, and marked down even more at Macy’s if you wear a L or XL.
I love my Frye sneakers — they’re super comfortable and durable — and wear them pretty much every day through the spring and fall (and some cooler days in the summer). These are the same ones I have, but in a different color, and are currently 55% off.
My fave underwear is 50% off, so that means it’s time for my semi-annual stock-up. If you haven’t tried these yet, I highly recommend!
If you have a kid between the ages of like 6-9 and you’re looking for something to keep him or her occupied this summer, this might be your answer. Jackson actually got one as a gift for Christmas, but it’s only been since school let out and we’ve hosted a few get-togethers with family friends that a full-fledged trend has begun among his peers around this thing, where kids are begging their parents to get them one and asking Jackson to give them one as a gift for their birthdays. Only get it if you don’t mind your kid being quiet and out of your hair and out of trouble for an hour or two. 🙂

I am for sure making that salad. A close match to one I have been craving from a favorite restaurant back home. Thanks for the recipe Wendy! You are curing my craving and solved lunch for me for tomorrow since I have all the ingredients on hand!

It’s so good! And you don’t have to follow the recipe exactly. I only had a quarter pint of grape tomatoes on hand and no cilantro, and the fish was still delicious. I bet it’s be great with various types of cheese too. But I could eat a bowl of it, as is, for a meal once a day til the end of corn season. And it took maybe 20 minutes to make, total (including cooking the corn).

Motivated me to order the Nordstrom cookbook. They have all their cafe recipes there and one is a similar salad but with Parm crusted chicken. So good and I’ve been missing it. Since the first place I ever went in life was Nords (yes my mother left the hospital and took me there, crazy woman) I don’t know how I’ve gone so long without buying it as I’ve seen it a million times. I love so much of the food in their cafes.

Agree with the salad. I wish I had to get something. I have no excuse to splurge on anything right now but the bag and undies are cute.

I knowwww. I put myself on a temporary spending ban after spending more than usual on my move and a trip I just took to California. The bag and undies are so cute! And the shoes.
JD July 12, 2018, 6:31 pm
I am on a non self imposed spending limit, thanks to husband and any shopping in this horrible place is online only, and it suckkkksss. I did order two pairs of way too expensive but amazing shoes though. Shhhh!!! It’s the only thing I’ve bought in 6 months that wasn’t a necessity.

How is it possible that the undies only come in one size?
Dear Wendy July 12, 2018, 3:57 pm
I was skeptical of this too and I can’t speak for all body types and sizes, but I’m a size 10 (pants size 29-30/ generally a medium or large) with average to big-ish hips and these undies are the most comfy I’ve worn and they stay the fuck put. I’d be curious to hear from women of different sizes who’ve tried them and what they think…
JD July 12, 2018, 4:07 pm
I am a XS or S in undies, 24/25 jeans and not very hippy, but not straight, I do have a bit of curve and these fit me amazingly! I have an obsession with all Natori under garments in regards to comfort. They are one of the few that ALWAYS fit me and feel good.

Okay, after reading this… I think I’m going to break my shopping ban. Overshare: when I started squatting heavy weights a couple years ago, my bootie grew. Like, a lot. For the past year or so, I haven’t been able to find full-bottomed underwear that fits. Maybe this will be what I’ve been looking for all this time.

That salad looks like the perfect summer salad. I bookmarked it. I’m also on a spending freeze!
