Claire’s Amazon Coat

Amazon Coat [I sized up one for room to layer!] // Non-Fleece Version

I’ve been dying for this Amazon coat for at least two seasons now, and decided to snag it while it was on sale earlier this month [it goes on sale often, so keep an eye out!]. It is incredibly warm – I was sweating taking the photo – and I love all the details! For reference, I’m usually size M-L and ordered this one in a Large for more room to layer! PS. it also comes in another style without fleece!

Katy’s Drawer Organizers

Drawer Organizers [13 Piece]

WHEW thank you to these organizers for helping me get my life together LOL. As you can see from the before picture of my drawer, this was a HOT MESS. I feel so much more organized and like I can see everything now! This set came with 13 pieces in various sizes, so I was able to use it for multiple drawers!

Katy’s Phone Case

Phone Case [14 pro]

EEEEEK when I saw this phone case that matches my LIY gratitude journal cover design (also the inside of my planner cover) so perfectly I HAD to snag it! This brand has so many cute options and is also a “save” version of the CASETiFY cases!

Katy’s Nursing Gown + Robe

Nursing Nightgown + Robe [true to size] // Slippers [true to size]

Expecting our first baby I have no idea what to truly expect postpartum, but so many of you suggested getting and nursing nightgown and robe to be comfy after giving birth! This one feels so good on, has the nursing clips, and I am hoping it will keep me cozy and feeling good after! I am so excited for all of the baby snuggles 👶

Lauren’s Simply Modern 40 Oz Water Bottle

Lauren’s Simply Modern 40 Oz Water Bottle

Dare I say I am liking this water bottle better than the Stanley? *gasp* I know. I like the lid/straw combo better, it’s not as bulky, it’s cheaper, and honestly, I think it does the trick just as well [by does the trick I mean it keeps my ice water cold and keeps me hydrated all day long!]. Sold!

Lauren’s Puffer Vest + Turtleneck

Quilted Puffer Vest [true to size, wearing in medium] // Turtleneck [size up if in between, wearing in large]

Claire’s Hydration Packets

Ultima Electrolyte Mix

As much as I love liquid IV to stay hydrated, I’m not so crazy about all the added sugar. When I came across Ultima Electrolyte Mix with 0 sugar and 0 calories [plus a ton of fun flavors!] I happily made the switch. Just add a stick to your water bottle, shake, and voila! Cheers to staying hydrated – without the extra sugar!

Claire’s Amazon Clogs

Clogs [size up .5 if in between]

I know, I know. The clog trend isn’t for everyone. But if you too, have been sucked onto the Birkenstock bandwagon, but a) can’t find them in stock or b) don’t care to drop the $$$ on a trend – I’m right there with ya! But never fear, Amazon is here. I found these Birkenstock Boston lookalikes for under $40 and available on Prime, so you can participate in the trend before it’s gone. 😉 For size reference, I’m usually an 8.5-9 and got these in the 9’s and I’m so glad I did! If in between sizes, definitely go up the .5!

Cassidy’s Lululemon SoftStreme Pant

Softstreme Split-Hem High-Rise Pant Typically a size 2/4 or 27 and I sized up to a 6!

I asked and YOU answered! I have had my eye on these pants for some time now, but the price was really deterring me… So, I decided to ask our community if you thought they were worth the splurge! To my surprise, you all gave me a big green stamp of approval [see the post here!] and I have never hit checkout faster! After getting them in the mail just two days later and wearing them/washing them, I must say, you did not lead me astray! These pants are literally my dream pant. They are definitely athleisure, but at the same time they are kind of elevated! If I leave the house wearing these, I feel more put together than just wearing my typical sweatpants. The material is also….. AMAZING. Truly feels like butter. I wore them recently while traveling and that was a game changer.

They are easy to wash but be sure to hang dry to avoid any shrinking! One “complaint” I saw and experienced some of my own, was when they get wet the water stain shows for awhile. From the reviews, I thought it would literally never go away, but it does! So for example, if I was doing dishes and wiped my hands on the sides of my pants, it would definitely show the water marks right away. BUT it does dry and doesn’t actually stain the pant. After wearing these on repeat, it has really not been an issue/something I notice!

Cassidy’s Our Place Perfect Pot [YELLOW10 for 10% off]

Our Place Perfect Pot [code YELLOW10 for 10% off]

I absolutely adore Our Place. I love the look, the utility, and the quality of their products! My hope is to slowly accumulate the entire collection! The cutting board is next on my list! But I am loving this pot because of the size, and the ability to use it on the stove top or in the oven! I recently hosted a party with 14 people and this pot held enough chili to serve the masses and I would put it in the oven just to keep it warm while guests arrived! This is also such a good gift idea for moms, mother in laws, college graduates, newly weds, first time home buyers, just all of the occasions really!

Macy’s Boots

Boots [TTS, size down if in between] // Sweater [TTS]

I already know I’m going to be reaching for these boots all winter long. Super comfortable and perfect to throw on with a sweater or any top!

I found myself with a quiet house this morning for the first time in over a week. I love nothing more than having everyone home together, but my soul needs time alone too. As soon as everyone was off to school, the silence was quickly filled with the rumblings of my not-yet-fed stomach which got […]
