On Tuesday night time, I booked a babysitter for the boys and joined my girlfriends for our second annual Galentine’s Favorite Things dinner! All of us acquired collectively round Valentine’s Day final yr and exchanged small items — $10 or much less — and had a lot enjoyable that we determined to make it a little bit of a convention and do it once more this yr. We exchanged our small surprises over dinner and had one of the best time!! Final yr I wrapped up electric lighters for everybody however this yr I gave my girlfriends my favourite organic rosehip seed oil, natural peppermint lip balm and microfiber wristbands to maintain their arms and sinks dry throughout face washing! (They’re superior and I extremely suggest them!) My mates and I all appeared to understand the identical factor when it got here to less-than-$10 gifting: Shopping for units of issues and splitting them up made it simpler to maintain prices down! As for what I acquired, the items have been all so enjoyable and artistic! My favourite issues haul this yr included Beautycounter lip gloss, darkish chocolate, microfiber washcloths, magnetic bookmarks, Honest Beauty tinted lip balm, a present card to a neighborhood espresso store, a gel pen and cute highlighter set, Bible verse encourgament cards and a Bible Promises for Moms e-book.
(Chairs / Pedestal Table / Lamp / End-of-the-Bed Ottomans / Chunky Knit Blanket / Gray Throw / Rug <– now we have the 8×10 dimension and it was underneath $200! I used to be so psyched about this discover! )
These chairs! I’m in love! I truly signed as much as be on a notification alert checklist to get them as a result of they bought out so quick when the newest Studio McGee x Goal assortment first appeared on-line so I used to be so pumped after I lastly snagged them. (They have been just lately restocked in a bunch of colours!) We positioned them in our bed room and they’re snug and supportive and have such a heat, inviting look to them. They appear even higher in particular person (nearly velvety!?) and I feel they’ve a gorgeously high-end search for much less. Goal is significantly killing it within the house décor/furnishings division these days!
A brand new coloration just lately dropped in our favourite Amazon sweatshirt and I couldn’t scoop it up quick sufficient! It’s a stupendous purple-blue color however the comfortable match and flattering type is all the identical! (It comes with a little bit brown leather-based tag on the zipper however I simply lower that off mine.) Once I inform you I put on this sweatshirt in not less than one of many colours I personal a number of instances every week, I’m not mendacity; it’s definitely my most-worn buy of fall/winter. It’s apparently a dupe for the lululemon scuba hoodie and I’m so glad so lots of you find it irresistible, too. The brand new coloration feels a little bit springy so I’m all about it as we transition into hotter climate in North Carolina.
My ranking: B
Years in the past I learn The Guest List by Lucy Foley and cherished it so I’m unsure why it took me so lengthy to choose up one other one among her books! I flew by means of the audiobook model of The Looking Occasion by the identical creator as we speak and suppose the audiobook model doubtless made me benefit from the e-book much more (one thing I wouldn’t normally say) as a result of the narrators have been so gifted and the voices have been so good! It was full of everybody’s-a-suspect intrigue and I regarded for small pockets of time all through the day after I may multitask and hearken to this one as a result of it saved me totally entertained from the very starting. (Additionally, I clearly appreciated it sufficient to search for one other e-book my Lucy Foley to dive into subsequent and simply began studying The Paris Apartment.)
The Looking Occasion begins as a gaggle of long-time faculty mates embark on their annual custom of a a New 12 months’s Eve getaway. The tightknit group is headed off to a secluded lodge the place they’re nearly fully alone within the wilderness excluding two workers members and a pair of sudden friends. They toast to a superb time, snigger and catch up however an undercurrent of secrecy, animosity and betrayal runs by means of their friendship. When one of many group members goes lacking after an evening of drunken partying, physique is found within the snowy wilderness and everybody’s a suspect.
