Another week, another edition of The Weekly Lo Down. If you’re new, this is a weekly blog post & email I send out to my subscribers where I share random online finds or things you may have missed from stories this last week, answers to your questions & link requests, weekend sales, discount codes, recent blog posts, & a charitable cause to consider supporting. It’s meant to be a resource for you all going into the weekend! We have plans to celebrate a birthday this weekend at a friend’s house & are getting together with family. We also need to hit up the grocery store before Thanksgiving. I can’t believe it’s almost here! Without further adieu, let’s jump into The Weekly Lo Down.
The Weekly Lo Down | 11.20.2020
I am still loving the shacket trend. A few new favs I found are this one, this one, or this one.
I just added this cardigan & these pants to my cart. Code LR20 saves you 20% on this entire site!
If you have a Samsung the Frame TV (see my full review + thoughts on if it’s worth it) did you know you can upload your own pics? I dowloaded this one & this one for ours so they have more of a winter/holiday vibe. I love them! See more options here.
Shopping for the ladies in your life? See this post for some ideas. There are more good ones in this retailer gift guide, too!
If you are a Sakara Life fan, or have been wanting to try it, I have great news! They expanded their options & now you can order just 2 meals a day (instead of all three). You can also do less days! This makes it much more flexible to enjoy their amazing meals. I’m so excited! Use code: XOLAURENMR for a discount.
I’ve been stocking up on cute sweatshirts lately. Loving this one, this one, & this one I just grabbed.
My fav makeup sponges that I love more than BeautyBlenders are not only so much more affordable (a pack of 5 for less than 1/2 the price of one), but I have a discount code. Use code: ALOPROFILE20 to save 20% at checkout. These would make a great stocking stuffer!
I’ve been looking for holiday dog collars for the pups so they are extra festive. So far I like this one, this one (although I may regret getting it, haha), or this one!
I’ve been using this black velvet ribbon in our Christmas decor around the house. I love it so much! Classic, chic, & ties everything around our home together.
I got these new sneakers in this week. I’ve worked out in them now & they are so comfortable. I sized up a 1/2 size.
I’ve used this one for years & love it.
Men’s sweaters! For gifts.
This one is my go to for Charles. Also, this one is great. I have more men’s gift ideas here.
Christmas themed front porch!
We have two of these trees & two of these trees + this wreath & love all of them. I also have this door mat layered with this one!
What are you doing to help you lose the extra weight? Diet, workout routine, mental health…
I changed up my workouts a little over a month ago to start adding in more workouts that get my heart rate up (like this one I did exclusively for years). On days I am doing lower impact workouts, I am using the Couch 2 5k app to get back into running. I try to do intermittent fasting (although I’m not super strict on wine at night) & have been trying to eat more healthy meals overall + keep my complex carbs (like lentil pasta) to lunch times during the week. I’ve noticed a big change already!!
Shopping for my brother in law.
Check out my gifts for him + my gifts for the beer drinker, gifts for the nature lover, & gifts for the cocktail connoisseur.
I did a blog post with tons of ideas!
Best black boots & booties!
These are my fav boots because they are so flattering on the leg with the dip in the front. I also like this pair for a fun, winter vibe or these for more of a day to night pair. The pairs of black booties I’m wearing most right now are these & these.
Rec for no show workout socks.
I bought these a month or two ago & they are my new fav. Ordering more for sure!
Mom gift for the simplistic, “gardening type” mom.
I came up with just the gift guide! Look at my gifts for the green thumb guide. I also have some cute ones on my gifts for her & since you can’t go wrong with a candle I came up with gifts for the candle lover.
Tree ribbon & picks. I need to step up my tree decorating.
I actually don’t have any ribbon on our trees this year. I did use this one to hang up some larger ornaments though. If you’re going the ribbon route, look at this one, this one, or this one. I did a round up of ornaments if you need some!

This week I am sharing the National Bail Fund Project from my Change with Me plan that I shared as my plan through the end of 2020 to continue to support the BLM movement. This organization believes that organizers should have the space & freedom to experiment with interventions to bring systemic change to the criminal legal & immigration systems. The National Bail Fund Network, is a part of The Community Justice Exchange which is a formation of over eighty community-led bail & bond funds that are part of campaigns to end pretrial & immigration detention. It’s a great cause to consider supporting should you feel compelled to do so!
Thanks so much for stopping by to spend some time with me before the weekend. I write this post each week to be a resource for you all to catch up on things you may have missed & help you all with things you’re shopping for. I know stories can be missed so it’s often easier to have this to reference as needed. As always, feel free to reach out with any thing I can help with! XO
