Hi friend! Welcome to a brand new week! We had a busy, but good weekend.
The most exciting thing was Jordan finally got the short haircut she’s been wanting for over a year. It’s kind of a long pixie and she LOVES it! She looks darling and I’m so happy that she’s happy! Plus, it will be so much easier to brush since she’s tender-headed and that was always a struggle.
I shared a video on my Instagram Stories if you want to check it out!
Now onto today’s post! You might have been confused by the title, since it’s definitely a Monday and not Tuesday yet! I’ve been doing a weekly series on Stories and wanted to share it here too, in case you missed it.
It’s nothing extravagant, just little things that make life a bit sweeter. Hence the title! These are things I find useful in my day-to-day life, and you might too. I share these “goodies” on Stories every Tuesday, so you can catch them live there.
You can catch the next one live on my Stories tomorrow!
Here’s the latest!
Sunglasses • A great Amazon find that gives you stylish specs without the hefty price. Since they’re inexpensive, I love that I don’t have to worry about losing or scratching them. I got the tortoise shell, but they have other options.
Faux Peonies • I’ve had these gorgeous faux flowers for several years now and always bring them out in Spring. This is just one bunch, see how full they are!
Faux Artichokes • These were a recent find and I love the pop of green they add to my kitchen decor. And, you don’t have to worry about them spoiling. I’ve seen so many decorators using vegetables and fruit in their decor and these are so realistic looking.
Paper Towel Rod • Y’all know I don’t use paper towels on a regular basis, but several of the people in my life can’t live without them. I found this pretty gold rod and it comes with adhesive or mounting hardware so you can place it wherever you find most convenient.
Acrylic Necklace Holder • Brian recently installed these in my closet and I love how it turned out! They come with adhesive or mounting hardware and keep your necklaces in plain sight and tangle free.
Crochet Bag • I’m so smitten with this knit bag made of durable rope for the Summer! It’s perfect for vacay too.
Amber Bottles • I like these soap bottles so much that I have them in both my kitchen and half bathroom. Not only are they real glass, they come with their own minimal, waterproof labels. I have the matte black pump in the kitchen and bronze in the bath. The pumps work well too. Nothing worse than buying pumps that don’t pump anything out!
Dry Shampoo • Where would we be without the miracle of dry shampoo?! I remember pouring baby powder into my hair in high school. I love the Sol de Janeiro brand so much that I had to try their dry shampoo and let me tell you, it’s amazing! It absorbs all the greasiness from your hair, adds volume, and smells sexy!
Bamboo Baskets • These woven baskets come in a set of three and you can choose the shape! I got the rectangular.
Insulated Lunch Bag • I’ve already gotten much use out of this cute insulated lunch bag. We’ve been taking it to track meets and it’s also perfect for bringing your lunch to work.
Salt & Pepper Grinder • How pretty are these Turkish salt and pepper mills?! I’m using them for decor and they coordinate well with the gold pot filler over our stove.
Slim Non-Velvet Hangers • When I moved, I noticed just how dingy my current felt hangers had gotten. These new hangers are the same slim space savers, but in a plastic that doesn’t attract fuzz and dust!
Pill Box • This labeled pill box helps keep me on track with the vitamins/supplements I take daily. And it packs easily for travel!
Opaque Bodysuit • This bodysuit is a Must Have with its sleek shape and full, comfortable snap bottom. They are opaque and I have both the black and white.
Water Filter • My new refrigerator doesn’t have a water dispenser, but this water filter works perfectly. It’s easy to fill and the water is clean and clear in minutes!
Steamer • My old steamer finally gave out and I wanted something more compact. This one is powerful and folds up so it can be easily stored in a small space.
Luggage Tag • How cute are these tags?! They went to Mexico with me!
Passport Book • Speaking of travel, this passport book was so handy! It has a magnetic clasp to keep it closed and it also has a place inside for your vaccination card or ids. I ended up using it as my wallet while we traveled and I got Brian the black one.
Willow Tree Figurine • Brian gifted me this lovely figurine for my birthday and I couldn’t love it more. Willow Tree makes the most sentimental figurines for any occasion. I have the nativity scene for Christmas.
Smart Light Bulbs • Me (and my kids!) love these bulbs. They work just like a regular light bulb, but you can operate them from an app on your phone, set the time the lights come on and off and change the color to anything in the rainbow.
Squeegee • It’s the simple things in life that really make your day! After every shower, I wipe down my glass doors with this squeegee that hangs in my shower. It keeps your shower doors clean and spot free. I love the gold color, but it comes in other shades if you prefer.
Woven Bag • I took this woven bag with me on my beach vacay with Brian.
Bamboo Dish Scrubbers • Who says cleaning products have to be ugly?! These bamboo brushes not only clean well, they look pretty on your counter.
Cotton Top • This cotton tee comes in 100% organic cotton and it so super soft you won’t want to take it off!
Bitters Bottles • I like to store my coffee syrups in these gorgeous pour bottles. The bottle came with a handy mini funnel which made the decanting process mess free!
Bracelets • So nice, I bought them twice! Well in different colors, but still! So easy to wear and they make a fun statement on your wrist!
Brightening Cream • I’m telling you I love this Sol de Janeiro brand so much. I first fell in love with the Bum Bum Cream, and this is their luxurious brightening cream with Vitamin C. It smells delicious and feels luxurious on your skin.
Ball Cap • Such a great little cap to throw on for a day at the park, beach or weekends!
Crossbody Bag • I love having a lightweight crossbody bag for walks to the park. This one is nylon with functional zippers and easy to carry.
Lip Butter • This lip butter has coconut and acai oil, goes on smooth and keeps your lips hydrated.
Lip Kit • This kit comes with the prettiest shade of pink and has a matching lip liner. I’ve been wearing it a bunch for a hint of color and I LOVE how it feels on my lips- almost like a lip oil.
Crossbody • Here’s another style of the crossbody bag I showed you above. This one is a little bit bigger so it holds more. I like the striped bag strap and it’s also perfect for travel.
Sandal • I found these sandals on Amazon and bought them in both black and brown. They’re sleek and minimal and look great with skirts, dresses and jeans. I would recommend sizing down 1/2.
Decorative Links • You’ve probably seen this wooden links in pale or white, but I like the black for the contrast they provide.
Self Tanner • My hold grail of self tanners! It gives the best color and goes on in an easy to apply mousse. You can rinse after one hour if you just want a hint of color or leave it on for a darker tan.
Lip Balm • This lip balm gives you a hint of color and a hint of a pout!
Wooden Tray • This wooden tray is handmade and just perfection. Mine is a little taller underneath so it spins like a lazy susan! I have used it in several places in my house, but it’s currently in my kitchen.
Rings • So understated and perfect for every day. I literally wear these everyday!
Beach Tote • Another great beach tote for Summer! This one holds a bunch and is easy to carry.
Butterfly Necklace • This butterfly necklace is so pretty and delicate, perfect for Spring and Summer. I’ve had it for a while and it still looks great.
Phone Case • A while back, I got a new iPhone and loved my case so much I bought it again. It’s sleek and minimal and comes in every color of the rainbow.
Woven Baskets • I’m using these woven baskets for the grab and go snacks in our pantry.
Matte Liquid Lipsticks • These lip colors go on wet, but dry matte with the color staying in place all day. I’ll often layer a bit of gloss on top if I want more of a sheen.
Felt Wood Board • I got this to use for decor and to write charming sayings on, but my daughter confiscated it from me! She loves making up words and sentences and I’m liking how it’s turned into a fun learning tool.
Tissue Box Cover • When I needed a tissue box cover, I couldn’t believe how hard it was to find a pretty, simple one. I love these faux leather boxes and they come in a variety of colors.
Stud Earrings • These are on the top sellers list every week! They are affordable and easy to wear, I usually wear them to the gym. Mine are the 5mm size.
Sunday Tee • Wore this tee for the Super Bowl, but it works for every day as well. It’s a super soft material.
Matches in Glass Cloche • This little glass cloche is so cute and a great addition to shelf or end table decor. It’s also functional with a match strike on the back and comes in several colors.
Lighter • I usually light a candle in the kitchen after cleaning it at night and also light candles in the living room in the evening for that soft ambiance. I use this rose gold lighter that actually goes with my decor.
Towels • We’ve had these towels for a couple years now and they’re still going strong. They’re soft and absorbent and we also have the hand towels.
Tunic Tee • Great tee for covering the bum so you can easily wear with leggings.
