Wendy’s Picks

If you watch my Instagram stories (and, really, you should be), you’ve no doubt seen the blue sunglasses I’ve been sporting for most of the summer. I get a ton of compliments on them (probably because they cover half my face) and people keep asking where they’re from, so here you go. I freakin’ love Nordstrom Rack — $20 for these shades that originally retailed for $125!

Ok, here are a few other recent purchases I’ve made at NR: this tank from Madewell (in heavy rotation this summer); a couple of these cute and breezy tanks for working out; and this perfect summer dress. I didn’t order this eyeshadow set, but I have to share a link because it’s such a good deal and maybe you’re in the market.

My birthday is coming up in less than a month — 42, y’all — and I know Drew always checks these posts for ideas, so Drew, this one’s for you: I really like all of these earrings.

Cleaning out the litter box is the bane of my existence, but we recently switched to this litter and now it’s not so bad. Really. This litter is sort of miraculous? It’s super lightweight and it actually manages to keep the box smelling… not horrible. Honestly, in 19 years of being a cat mom, this is the best product I’ve found. (If you read the reviews, almost all the negative ones are from first-time cat owners who don’t realize how god awful most litter is and how much better this stuff is. Those in the know, know.)

I’m trying to cut back a little bit on my alcohol intake just because that seems like something a person should do on occasion, and now when I am craving a cocktail, I reach for one of these, which I think is sort of the perfect non-boozey summer drink (in the cutest can, too!). Except…I keep imagining all the ways I could make a delicious cocktail with it, so stay tuned – I suspect there might be a new Drinking with Dear Wendy coming up before summer ends…

    I can do so much damage at Nordstrom rack, but all for low prices woo hoo! I think you motivated me to go find some new glasses. I have really expensive pair i received as a gift but I’m always afraid to wear them so I have a Chloe pair I got from rack for about $45 instead of $250! Need another find along those lines so I don’t want to cry if they fall off! I have such a small head so it’s a struggle to find any that fit but I do seem to always manage to find some at Rack. I think it’s time for a trip. Those earrings are so cute!

    I drank a ton of spindrift and also Izze when I was pregnant and craving a drink. I totally craved drinks when I was pregnant, which may be a sign of alcoholism, idk.

      Not the cucumber flavor though, I had a cucumber aversion my whole pregnancy. The grapefruit and lemon were my jam.

        That’s funny – I have an aversion to grapefruit (a bd night of mixing grapefruit juice with too much vodka in college…) but really like the cucumber. And the lemon!
