Random Things We've Bought Recently and Loved!

Monday, May 16, 2022

Are you really even a grown up if getting a new vacuum cleaner wasn't the highlight of your entire month?! It might be lame, but it's me. We recently bought a new vacuum cleaner after our Dyson literally fell apart in my hands. I'll be honest we are really hard on our vacuums. #PugLife. After it fell apart, Blake admitted the Dyson was making this shrill noise for months that he couldn't stand and I apparently couldn't hear. 

We went with this Samsung stick vacuum and it's a dream. The canister is infinitely easier to empty and it has a + and - power situation that makes it so much easier to suck up pug hair. Plus, it's rose gold sooo I'm in love obviously. 

There are even varieties of vacuums these days that are self emptying? Did you guys know we are living in the future?! 

We recently had some friends over for dinner and when we were cleaning up the kitchen my friend Alice took a picture of my counter top spray because she was in love with the scent and wanted to know where to get some! This made me feel 100% better about buying this unnecessarily expensive counter top spray. 😂 I've loved the Caldrea room sprays and soaps in the past, but this was my first time trying out the counter spray. It's great and leaves the kitchen smelling fantastic! Sea Salt Neroli all the way. (We also got a great laugh reading the scent description on the bottle! Whoever writes for Caldrea needs a raise.) 

File this under RANDOM, but I saw this bento style container on Williams Sonoma and thought it'd be perfect for Blake's work lunches. I think it's designed for salads, but it works so well for a sandwich and a few snacks. And then you only have to wash one dish! It's just so cute, and I've even had fun packing a few lunches for him since we got it. (He packs his own lunch most days, but I try to do it for him if he's running short on time.) Plus William Sonoma quality is just great. 

If you struggle with bloating, this might be a great option for you! Bye Bye Bloat is a supplement of fennel, dandelion, and fenugreek to help with digestion and get rid of bloat. You take two at night or after a big meal. It has definitely made a difference for me! I don't struggle with digestion so much as water weight - so I think if you do have bathroom trouble this would be really helpful.

A few clothing purchases:

Stay Sunny Old Navy Tee - this shirt is SO comfortable and I love the color. It's long on me, but I have a short torso. If you have a long torso, I think this would be the holy grail tee! I can't find the link online, and I found it in the physical store. This is a similar shirt, but no graphic.

Rifle Paper Phone Case - I actually had to get a new phone, because I busted my screen pretty badly a few months ago. Funnily enough, I wanted a smaller phone - which is probably the opposite of most people. But, I'm loving that this one fits in my pocket. I went with this Rifle Paper Co phone case and it's gorgeous! (And totally invested in a better screen protector this time too.) I don't have an iphone, but if you do there are tons more Rifle Paper patterns to choose from.

Target Ballet Dress - Oh this dress! It's perfect! Dress it up or down. I want every color but they can't seem to keep it in stock. 

J Crew Shorts and Cropped Tank - I got these shorts last year off season, so I'm was really happy to find them in my summer clothes when I changed out my closet! They are high waisted and so stretchy. I also picked up this black tank, didn't realize it was cropped, but am totally fine with it. You'll be seeing me in this all summer long.

Talbots Ruffle Trim Top - This picture is from book club a few weeks ago, but I also wanted to share how much I love this top from Talbots! Blue and white stripes...should surprise no one that I love this top! It's another one that can easily be dressed up a little or worn with shorts in the summer. 

One more random thing to share! This was a gift, but we love it so much I had to share! My parents and brother got us a Yeti cooler for our anniversary. You might remember from this post that I lost my cooler last summer. I think it was stolen after if fell off our golf sad! Especially because it had our sticker collection on it. So, we were able to start up our collection again and it's just so fun to look at!
