Friday why's


Why is it so hard to find the perfect t-shirt?! I found the best t-shirts around 5-6 years ago at Target. They were made by Mossimo and were v-neck with a little pocket and the way they fit was perrrrrfect. They weren't too tight/fitted and were just the right length. They were also cotton and not that gross latex-y material that wrinkles the second you put a seat belt on. But now, I can't find anything similar anywhere. Now, t-shirts come with built-in chokers. I just want a classic t-shirt, dang it. Oh, FUN FACT: Did you know the designer Mossimo is married to Aunt Becky from Full House, Lori Loughlin? Yep. They've been married since 1997 and have two daughters.


What's up with Khloe Kardashian's selfie overload and her tongue sticking out of her mouth? A friend of mine pointed this out to me because she may know how much I can't stand when people take photos with their mouths open, and especially when their tongue is hanging out. Because, why?! Who wants a photo of that -- your tongue, just frozen in time? No one. Keep your tongue inside your mouth, where it was when you were born. 

What's up with Vanderpump Rules? Do you watch this shitshow? I've watched since the very beginning, and loved watching these 20-somethings and their drama. But, now...they're in their 30s and they still have the SAME drama, which is centered around a bunch of mean girls, and their men who can't go out without cheating on their girlfriends/wives. Pretty sad. I'll be surprised if this isn't the last season.

Why do I keep saying "I need a massage" and then I don't get one? It's not like getting a massage is a really time-consuming thing to do, and it is a form of therapy, so it's not even the same thing as going to get your nails done (which, in a way, can also be a form of therapy, I suppose). So, why do I keep putting it off? Seems silly. I'll schedule one today.


I've never been more into hoodies, jeans, joggers and sneakers more than I am now. #momlife. I used to recoil and break out in hives just thinking about sneakers. I went years -- YEARS -- not owning a pair. I lived in heels, wedges and only sometimes...flats. But, now -- I'm a little sneaker lover. I should do a separate post on the variety of sneaks I adore. Currently, though -- I'm rocking my North Face Micro Baffle booties. Whatever "micro baffle" means.

What the heck are you supposed to do when the weather goes from 12 degrees to 45? I was wearing my winter coat out of the house, but then broke into a sweat in the store. Gross. Should I be peeling off my coat when I walk into a store and do what...stuff it in the cart? Or just buy more deodorant? 

 S’all for now. Happy Friday and don’t forget about the Rae Dunn giveaway! Share with yo’ friends!  

My newest obsessions

The title of the post says it all, so let's jump in:

HelloFresh. I didn't think I'd ever really try a meal delivery service, but I'm so glad I did. What led me to jump in? Well, they offered $30 off the first week, and I was tired of spending so much energy trying to figure out what was for dinner that night. And also - I'm not a great cook, even if I do enjoy it sometimes. So, HelloFresh was practically MADE for me. I love that there's fresh ingredients, I can choose what meals we want, that there's always just 6 easy steps when it comes to cooking the meals and that I feel so proud of making something so delicious. I have a bunch of free boxes to give away, so if you're interested in giving it a try, let me know!

 It was this IG repost from Jessica Alba via JBeebeShoes that initially caught my eye!

Honest Beauty. Even though I've always thought Jessica Alba was ridiculously gorgeous, and one of my hair idols - I wasn't super intrigued by the Honest Company baby products (but I do love their hand sanitizer, even if I don't think hand sanitizer is really good for you but that's another story). HOWEVER, I follow Honest Beauty on Insta, and happened to see a bunch of comments saying how amazing the Younger Face moisturizer was. AND - I went to Target that afternoon and was delighted to see Honest Beauty is sold there. It was fate. And, I have to say - I'm in LOVE with that moisturizer, as well as the Magic Balm, Replenishing Mist, and Younger Eye Cream. So far.

Red Bull - the tropical flavor. Yes, I know Red Bull isn't GREAT for you, but it's so delicious and gives me that lift that an afternoon coffee could, except I can't stand the way coffee coats my mouth and makes it dry af. However, I do not drink RB's daily. Or with vodka.

Apple Smart Battery Case. I was getting tired of having to charge my phone every.single.night and sometimes throughout the day. I wouldn't get a text or email for hours and then when I'd go to charge it across the room, it would start dinging. Annoying. Now, I can go pretty much an entire day without having to worry about that. Worth the $99 investment.

Evil eyes. Evil eyes protect you from jerks, says Greek culture. The evil eye is a curse and has lots of symptoms - headaches, nausea, dizziness, or just feeling crappy. It's given to you by someone who doesn't like you, is envious of you...or even by someone who is obsessed with you. I'm not worried about getting this curse, per se, but I do like to feel like I have some form of extra protection from a-holes in this day and age. I got this beautifully delicate evil eye necklace from an Etsy shop called ALTUJIN.

Those are just some things that are getting me though my days lately, and I'd love to hear yours! Happy Friday!

The best 4th of July outfits

Maybe it's the diehard America and Ralph Lauren lover in me, but I've always liked red, white and blue together. I love stripes and stars, too. So, this 4th of July, I LOVE seeing everyone's outfits on Instagram (SN: I'd say Facebook too, but that's becoming more of a social media outlet for those in their 60s, isn't it? Anyway...).

Here are some ensemble inspirations for the 4th, whether you're going to a picnic, party, the beach or just relaxing in your own backyard! What will you be wearing?
