Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! We had a looong day yesterday! I tried to get me and the kids a good night sleep, but Jordan had other plans. So, needless to say, I was exhausted all day yesterday (extra coffee please!!!) and then we had an unexpectedly long dental visit after school. Leftovers for dinner and call it a night!
Thankfully, I got some good sleep last night, which really helps! We’re off to the bookstore today for the annual school book fair and that’s always a fun event. Speaking of fun events, I’m so glad y’all enjoyed our Favorite Things Recap! I love hearing how we inspired your own parties!
And, I almost forgot about a girls’ White Elephant lunch on Friday where I suddenly needed a gift quick. Of course, I jumped on Amazon Prime to see what would make a great present in a jiffy and thought I’d share with you here.
Then, as always, I’m sharing a short and sweet “Just the Best Sales” post below. Hope y’all have a lovely day!
GIFTS FOR HER • ALL ON PRIME
Matte Lipstick • This matte lipstick is what I often wear because the color is nicely pigmented and it lasts all day. It goes on wet like a gloss, but dries matte. If I want some sheen, I’ll add a sheer gloss on top. There are tons of different shades and they are sold individually, but this gift set makes a great gift, or you can break apart the set to give as singles.
Pajama Set • I tried on a pair of pajamas almost exactly like this at Nordstrom and this pair is just as good! They are so soft and lightweight, with lots of stretch, an elastic drawstring waist and side pockets. And over 700 positive reviews!
Pajama Fit: I’m wearing size XS and they’re long
Striped Sweater • This pullover sweater is so good! I’ve worn it several times and it has held up to machine washing beautifully. It’s a pretty color I’ve been loving these drop snowflake earrings. They are nice and lightweight and a wonderful size, and also make a great gift.block style with a front pocket and lots of stretch.
Kitchen Tools Set • I just ordered the prettiest set of kitchen tools in white for me and then a mint colored set for my mom since that’s her favorite color. But, they come in so many pretty hues and tools you will actually use- not just sit in a drawer.
Weighted Blanket • I mentioned this after my friend Marianna told me about it at our Favorite Things party. She said it’s been the best thing and now I want to try it out. Have you tried one? Thoughts? Recommendations??
Softest Sheets • These sheets from Amazon are on every bed in our house (including the kids). They are incredibly soft, but also durable. We all have white (and they machine wash and dry well), but they come in lots of colors.
Snowflake Earrings • These pretty drop snowflake earrings make a lovely gift. I’ve been waring mine daily and they’re nice and lightweight.
I can’t believe I haven’t shared these leggings before. When I did my What to Wear with Leggings post, a reader DMed asking if I had a recommendation for a budget-friendly pair of leggings and I found it!
These are only $18 and the best part is – they are specifically made to wear with outfits, as opposed to taking your workout leggings and turning them into styles. This pair has clean lines, no pockets for a streamlined fit, made from double-knit Ponte fabric. They’re nice and thick and hold their shape all day with a comfortable banded waistband.
You basically get the comfort of leggings with the look of a pant.
Leggings Fit : I’m wearing size XS and rolled about an inch under to show some ankle
The hoodie pullover is nice and stretchy, and long enough for leggings. It’s the perfect piece for layering a puffer jacket over also. I literally want one of these in every color- it comes in 9!
Pullover Fit: I’m wearing size XS
Another sneaker that is so, so good are these slip on mesh sneakers with over 5,000 positive reviews. I thought they looked cute on the website, but I wanted to check them out in person. They are cute! And super comfy! They are so lightweight, almost like wearing air on your feet.
There are tons of slightly different styles to choose from, so look at them closely- and you’ll get to pick your favorite colors since they have so many. I really like this slate grey “6703 Deep Gray” and the pink “6701 Mauve” below.
Sneaker Fit: I’m wearing size 6
