On Tuesday night time, I booked a babysitter for the boys and joined my girlfriends for our second annual Galentine’s Favorite Things dinner! All of us bought collectively round Valentine’s Day final 12 months and exchanged small presents — $10 or much less — and had a lot enjoyable that we determined to make it a little bit of a convention and do it once more this 12 months. We exchanged our small surprises over dinner and had the most effective time!! Final 12 months I wrapped up electric lighters for everybody however this 12 months I gave my girlfriends my favourite organic rosehip seed oil, natural peppermint lip balm and microfiber wristbands to maintain their arms and sinks dry throughout face washing! (They’re superior and I extremely suggest them!) My buddies and I all appeared to understand the identical factor when it got here to less-than-$10 gifting: Shopping for units of issues and splitting them up made it simpler to maintain prices down! As for what I obtained, the presents have been all so enjoyable and artistic! My favourite issues haul this 12 months included Beautycounter lip gloss, darkish chocolate, microfiber washcloths, magnetic bookmarks, Honest Beauty tinted lip balm, a present card to an area espresso store, a gel pen and cute highlighter set, Bible verse encourgament cards and a Bible Promises for Moms ebook.
These chairs! I’m in love! I really signed as much as be on a notification alert listing to get them as a result of they offered out so quick when the latest Studio McGee x Goal assortment first appeared on-line so I used to be so pumped after I lastly snagged them. (They have been lately restocked in a bunch of colours!) We positioned them in our bed room and they’re comfy and supportive and have such a heat, inviting look to them. They give the impression of being even higher in particular person (nearly velvety!?) and I feel they’ve a gorgeously high-end search for much less. Goal is significantly killing it within the residence décor/furnishings division recently!
A brand new colour lately dropped in our favourite Amazon sweatshirt and I couldn’t scoop it up quick sufficient! It’s a fantastic purple-blue color however the cozy match and flattering fashion is all the identical! (It comes with somewhat brown leather-based tag on the zipper however I simply minimize that off mine.) Once I let you know I put on this sweatshirt in at the very least one of many colours I personal a number of instances per week, I’m not mendacity; it’s indisputably my most-worn buy of fall/winter. It’s apparently a dupe for the lululemon scuba hoodie and I’m so glad so lots of you find it irresistible, too. The brand new colour feels somewhat springy so I’m all about it as we transition into hotter climate in North Carolina.
My score: B
Years in the past I learn The Guest List by Lucy Foley and cherished it so I’m undecided why it took me so lengthy to select up one other one among her books! I flew by way of the audiobook model of The Searching Get together by the identical creator in the present day and assume the audiobook model probably made me benefit from the ebook much more (one thing I wouldn’t normally say) as a result of the narrators have been so gifted and the voices have been so good! It was full of everybody’s-a-suspect intrigue and I appeared for small pockets of time all through the day after I might multitask and hearken to this one as a result of it saved me totally entertained from the very starting. (Additionally, I clearly favored it sufficient to search for one other ebook my Lucy Foley to dive into subsequent and simply began studying The Paris Apartment.)
The Searching Get together begins as a gaggle of long-time faculty buddies embark on their annual custom of a a New Yr’s Eve getaway. The tightknit group is headed off to a secluded lodge the place they’re nearly fully alone within the wilderness apart from two employees members and a pair of sudden visitors. They toast to a great time, snort and catch up however an undercurrent of secrecy, animosity and betrayal runs by way of their friendship. When one of many group members goes lacking after an evening of drunken partying, physique is found within the snowy wilderness and everybody’s a suspect.
