K, well April flew by in about two seconds it. What an interesting month it was. Happy May & Happy Friday! I’m super excited to share The Weekly Lo Down with you all today. On Monday of this week, I put a question box up on stories asking what you all were shopping for right now & I got SO many different responses. Understandably so. Some of you are embracing quarantine & wanting more organization, home, & loungewear posts. Some are in limbo & wanting activewear & beauty (things for both now & later), & some are OVER IT & want all the cute clothes, swimsuits, shorts, & more. I feel all of you! I’m getting to everything a little bit today in The Weekly Lo Down & will be working to create blog posts over some things, too because there is just so much to share.
The Weekly Lo Down
If you need a new workout to try while at home or to kick things up a notch, I started P.Volve & have been loving it. I’ll have a full review up, soon. In the mean time check out reviews on the other workouts I do: Melissa Wood Health & The Sculpt Society. I also do John Benton & you can read more about that here. All of my equipment I use at home can be found in this post.
Lots of requests for organizational items! I’ll work on some posts for this if you all want, but in the mean time I have these baskets + these labels ALL over our home. I use these in our pantry & these in our fridge to organize, too. Also check out this LTK post & this LTK post for some amazing Amazon organization finds! You can also check my Amazon shop.
I know a lot of people are shopping for home items right now! You can shop all of my home decor in detail in these posts: Guest Bedroom Reveal, Cloffice Reveal, Hall Bathroom Remodel, & our Master Bedroom Reveal. I shared sources for our patio (work in progress) decor in the LiketoKnow.it app here, here, here, here, & here! I’ll do a full post on that space + our formal living/dining room, soon.
Speaking of home decor, you all LOVED this super affordable site I shared. I knew they had cute clothes, but didn’t know until recently that they had cute home decor, too. I’m eyeing this planter, this marble vase, & this lantern for our patio.
Some of you said you are shopping for cooking related items. I have still been loving our air fryer! I make okra fries & buffalo cauliflower in ours. This is a super cute set of mixing bowls, & I have been using this cookbook & this cookbook so much while in quarantine. I also love this cute white & rose gold gadget set.
Skincare: Check out this LTK post with some of my morning skincare routine. I have a ton of info on skincare in this blog post, but I’ll do an updated blog post on both AM & PM skincare routines soon, promise.
A few questions on THE Agolde shorts. I LOVE them. I order my true size in them. I size down one in their jeans because I like my jeans fitted, but prefer my denim shorts to be more relaxed. It’s definitely personal preference. If the Agolde shorts are a little too much of a splurge for you, this $15 pair is an amazing dupe (fit TTS) & I have honestly been reaching for them more than the Agolde pair recently.
Shopping for Mother’s Day gifts?? I got you covered! See this blog post.
Some of you are shopping for swimsuits & I am so jealous that you have a pool or a beach to wear them to where you live. I may be buying a blow up kiddie pool for myself in the back yard. Haha. Check out this post on LTK where I did a roundup of a few cute ones that I’m loving right now! I’ll work on a blog post for swimsuits ASAP for you all, too.
One of you said you were shopping for a good floor mirror. We have this vintage looking oversized gold one (MY FAV!), this acrylic + gold one, this wood one, & this gold one in our home. I also like this simple option or I love this one. I think this one is so cool too, but is more of a splurge!
I get asked about the wall art in our home a lot. Many are photos I have taken myself while traveling, but a few of my go to sites for prints are Society 6 & Citizen Atelier. I’ve thought about selling my prints on my site & some of you have expressed interest in that so stay tuned!
Seems like a lot of people are tired of activewear & ready for cute spring + summer clothes! Specifically, tops. For some of my recent favorites check out this blog post & this blog post where you can see a few cute ones I’ve styled from two of my fav retailers. I have a few try ons saved to Instagram highlights with options, too.
