Happy Friday! Wow, five weeks down and going into our sixth week of self-quarantine / social distancing / isolation from the outside world. I talk about this with my friends all the time, but I still can barely wrap my mind around the fact we’re currently living through a pandemic. How are you hanging in there? Just like I mentioned before, some days are better than others, but I’m really just trying to take it one day at a time. I definitely have my moments of sadness, anxiety, grief, and despair… But I also have my moments where I feel happy, hopeful, content, and at peace. I’m just trying to settle in to this new normal, and give myself grace for whatever feelings I’m feeling that day. Some days I’m as Gucci as can be, and other days I simply feel like I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and can’t really shake it. How are you hanging in there?!
PS: Pop Quiz: How much tie dye is too much tie dye?
Answer: The limit does not exist. 😜
Extra Credit: Bright colors and pastel prints are guaranteed mood boosters, trust.
Here are this week’s happy finds…
I love this (inexpensive) navy console table! I feel like it could also be used as a small writing desk… Great for improvising a home-office in small spaces!
Terez leggings are quickly becoming my favorite pairs of workout pants. Classic black Lululemon leggings have always been my go-to’s, but when you aren’t leaving the house, you’ve got to have something to spice it up! And it’s like Pokemon with all of these colors, prints, and patterns… I want every single pair! #GottaCatchEmAll 🤪 I’ve said it once, but I’ll say it again… Fun new workout clothes have always made working out more fun, but it rings especially true right now during quarantine!
I’ve decided is a margarita kind of weekend, so I’ll be making a few from this list on Saturday!
Julia also breaks down her recipe here!
Took me a second, but I LOL’d at this tee.
Omg the color of these sneakers!! Classic white, but I love the bright pops.
These garlic noodles look SO GOOD! Already added the ingredients to my grocery list.
All of this cold weather and snow has had me craving comfort food this week. This Cheddar Corn Chowder looks DELISH.
I love this nail polish color! Having a major moment with that orangey hue.
This tie dye pool float is only $39 and is a MUST for when we get to (distantly) enjoy summer. (Or if you’re one of the people currently quarantining in warm weather with a pool… #hateyou 😜)
And how cute is this tie dye lounge set?!
My jaw was ON THE FLOOR looking at this Chicago home. OMFG. Not every room is my style, but it’s *stunning.* Would kill for that kitchen though!
I do this weird thing where every time I see something ‘bows & sequins colors,’ I feel like I have to buy it. 🙄 But seriously, isn’t this sweatshirt adorbs?!
Ahh, all of these Stoney Clover Lane pouches are 40% off!
LoveShackFancy is an extra 20% the sale section this weekend!
The Sephora sale starts today for Rouge members… 20% off!
I went down the rabbit hole window shopping for my future apartment this week, and all of these rattan chairs had me seeing stars… 🤩
Found a pair of slides that’s a great dupe of the APL Techloom version for a mere $16!
I love all of these motivational quotes — great for phone backgrounds!
And last, but certainly not least — How to Maintain Your Mental Health While Quarantined
