So I used to be very happy when Anthro listed these on their website – with a slight toe peep in fact, however tremendous cozy, nice airport/flying sneakers (straightforward on/off clearly), and on a regular basis life.

After one use and preventing over it with Charles, I went and acquired one other one. It’s SO WARM and comfy and comfortable and…it’s every part a blanket must be within the winter. Do your self a favor and get the 60″ x 80″ dimension so you may wrap your entire physique in it like a burrito and nonetheless have some left over. Everybody that comes over finds their method beneath that blanket they usually all the time say the identical factor, “Omg this blanket! The place did you get it?” so yeah…you gained’t remorse it.
Additionally from Arlyn: I doubt anybody on the market actually wants *extra* folks to observe on their Instagram account however simply in case you occur to be a type of folks itching for brand spanking new leisure, I wished to place @kyledidit’s identify within the hat for you. I first discovered him by way of House Remedy, who shared his child’s closet redo. He’s a dad who’s self-taught in DIY and he’s a beam of sunshine in my day every single day.

Who wants train when your coronary heart is pumping from studying, you understand? Extremely advocate testing Tracy’s interview with NPR’s Contemporary Air, too – I’ve a sense that this launch goes to be a BIG one! (Ridley Scott, of Home of Gucci and Napoleon fame, has already optioned the movie rights.) Congrats Tracy!!!!!
Additionally from Caitlin: Should you’re on the hunt for a candy Valentine’s present concept, may I recommend this bouquet subscription? Dennis, the world’s cutest and nicest boyfriend, bought me one for Christmas and I LOVE IT. I’m so impressed by the standard, the range (he lets me decide – they’ve cool choices, I promise), and the longevity (it’s the one bouquet I’ve ever gotten that appears higher after 3 days). It really is the present that retains on giving:)PS. Should you additionally battle with remembering particular occasions, this might be a life-saver – you may change the recipient each month, so you may ship flowers to your associate in February, to a pal in March, to a graduate in April, to a mum or dad in Might…the choices are infinite.

Their objective is to boost $50k with half of that coming immediately from them. In case you are ready and wish to right here is the hyperlink to contribute to that objective!
From Mallory: Is Perpetually 21 making a comeback??? Final weekend I used to be strolling in Soho (bc I’m a lil NYC girlie now!!) and stumbled upon this costume within the window of Perpetually 21. I used to be instantly known as to it and was SHOCKED at how cute it’s on (the images actually don’t even do it justice on the web site). The reduce of the costume is so cute and appears far more costly than the mere $25 it truly is…in the event you’re out there for a cute winter-to-spring transition costume that is it!! I put on it with knee-high boots or sneakers and it appears to be like v cute with each. Plus I would costume it up after I go to Palm Springs for my mother’s bday!!
From Gretchen: I’ve been hooked on watching this Instagram account, Observe Star, the place folks on the streets of New York are interviewed and tasked with naming the artist of no matter music the host performs for them. Generally there’s a theme to the music decisions and different occasions it’s completely random. The contestants reply for cash, with the stakes beginning at $5, then go double or nothing for every reply they get proper. It’s addicting to play alongside and the company are sometimes such a pleasure to look at. The host, too! Typically they’ll have on musicians as guessers and it’s so attention-grabbing to listen to them reminisce on their musical influences as they reply. Only a actually enjoyable watch–however I’m secretly tuning in to observe, in hopes of finagling my method on as a contestant sometime.
From Gretchen: Additionally on Instagram, I believe I discovered a possible answer to a lighting drawback I’m having in my rest room. I not too long ago put up extra-long bathe curtains that stretch down from the ceiling. I believe the look is admittedly enjoyable and dramatic (although I’m not 100% satisfied I’ll hold them simply but). My major drawback is that with no hole between curtain and ceiling, and no mild put in contained in the bathe, I’m simply washing myself at nighttime. And I don’t adore it. At first, I discovered and put in these waterproof LED strip lights (the color-changing variety) across the ceiling’s perimeter, however now it simply seems like I’m showering in a teenage boy’s gaming room. Not the vibe! (I’m hoping to reuse them to mild my deck since they’re waterproof!) However I simply got here throughout this battery-operated mild, shared by a creator who tried it in an identical scenario (I want I had saved the video!) It appeared nice in her house, like an actual, easy, hardwired mild, and I’m satisfied it’ll be the fitting answer for me too!

Shock, shock I didn’t truly buy one till this week as a result of why would I need to shield my physique… plus the padding in my present seat lastly mentioned. “I can’t do that anymore Jess.” So I made a decision to purchase the Cushion Lab Strain Reduction Seat Cushion and I used to be shocked about how significantly better my again felt instantly! Now, under no circumstances am I a physician so be sure that it’s match for you however with almost 8k 5-star critiques it appears to be value trying into. In addition they are available 24 colours with 2 dimension choices. I selected the black so it may possibly mix in with the black leather-based on my chair and it has gripping materials on the underside so it doesn’t slide throughout. Oh, and it has a detachable cowl so you may wash it in case of spills:)
Thanks for studying and see you tomorrow! xx
