Well, the first week of school is in the books! I have underestimated how much mental energy I spent thinking about the boys when they were gone all day! I am so used to having them home, and even though I love their school and know they are happy, I missed them terribly! It felt like an extremely productive work week, personally, and that is always a gratifying feeling!
I shared a post recently about how we were prepping for school with some systems and routines, you can read it here.
I’m still hearing from people that the White T-Shirt Contest post was helpful, and I love that! I’m curious: what would you like to see next? V-neck t-shirts? Straight Leg Denim?
Did you know I have an Amazon Storefront where I’ve compiled my favorite things from Amazon? From home favorites (like the organizational bins I use in my pantry) to clothing purchases I love. You can check out my picks by clicking here!
My boys have outgrown some of our kid dishes so I found a melamine dish set on Amazon that has exactly what I need for the kids! 4 bowls, 4 large plates, and 4 small plates. They are melamine so they won’t easily break, and dishwasher safe as well.
I tried this dress on when it arrived in the mail this week. My first instinct was not love as the shoulders were a bit puffier in real life than displayed on the website, but after sharing it on Instagram I’ve been influenced to give it another try.
And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed:
Laneige lip sleeping mask – the best!
Anti-Slide pads for mules – very helpful for keeping your foot in the mule.
Favorite Jean Jacket – I’ve had mine for many years and it just gets better with age.
Hair Dressers Invisible Oil Soft Texture Finishing Spray from bumble and bumble – A really nice texture spray that adds definition without stiff hold.
Brownie Knife – An essential for cutting baked treats (from brownies to banana bread) out of metal pans without cutting the metal.
Tortilla Land uncooked tortillas – so delicious!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – A favorite easy to use eyebrow pencil.
FlutterHabit Lashes – Their new glue really is better!
Patrick Ta “She’s That Girl” Cream and Powder Blush – hopefully in stock soon!
Revlon Photo Ready Insta Highlighting Stick in Rose Gold Kiss – a very subtle stick highlighter
Always Pan by Our Place – I just ordered the pot since I love the pan so much.
