that's what she said

09 April 2016

The other day as I was getting dressed and ready for the day (afternoon more likely) I had the wild and crazy revelation that I was donning mostly recommendations from blog friends.

replace 1993 desktop with a battered smarty pants phone and ... bada boom.

And by friends I mean I read their blog and the friendship might be one-sided (don't tell me that though) but I realized how much I tend to try and end up loving things my e-friends recommend because their favorites rarely disappoint.

I thought I'd pass along some of my ABC (already been chewed - tell me you told that high-larious gum joke way back in the day too?) finds along because recycling never gets old.

1. Fran's tanks - I keep wanting to type, "Frank's Tanks" but I'm resisting! And they are actually called camis ... so, Fran's camis. Tank top and sleeveless dress season is almost upon us and maybe I'm the only one that has the "these arm holes are a litttttle too long for my liking" issue that can easily be fixed with a quick sewing alteration but my machine has been in dire need of repair for a long time and so when Fran said she wears these camisoles daily I listened and clicked right on over to order. They work really well as undershirts or worn alone if you're cool enough to pull off the open button-up look or (like I do daily) the cardigan over tank uniform. I bought the black and white and almost want to order another white so that I don't have to go a day without one. So much typing about this. Stopping. But! I do owe you, Fran!

2. When both Kelsey and Kate sang the praises of Burt's Bees new lipstick line and I happened to pass right by the Target display ... I knew it was destiny. The nude shade didn't disappoint and maybe one of these days I'll branch out and rock a shade that looks like I'm wearing lipstick. Maybe.

3. BlankNYC distressed denim- Shay always looks so cute and put together and I always loved when she wore these jeans but they were sold out f-o-r-e-v-e-r until they weren't! I love that they are pretty stretchy without dipping into actual jegging territory. I found a similar Seven For All Mankind pair at Nordstrom Rack and much prefer the BlankNYC pair which is nice because they are a fraction of the price. Anyway, I like that these aren't insanely distressed and hold their shape throughout many, many wears and many, many baby wipe spot cleans.

4. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay - this was actually recommend to me by one of you kind souls via blog comment or Instagram, I can't remember! But, I've had the same jar for almost 1.5 years, it's still going strong, and remains to be the best $9 I've spent (I believe it's dipped down to $8 at the moment). Every time I use it I wonder why I don't use it more because it really is as "deep pore cleansing" as it claims and leaves my face feeling squeaky clean without drying it to tears/flakes. I know I've told you about this before but it's worth a second mention. Forgive me.

And I could go on and on and on but I'll stop right here.

Hope you're having a great Saturday. And that it's not snowing in your neck of the world if you aren't a lover of an April snow shower.


  1. That meme! Haha. But seriously, all of my blog friendships are one sided. I tell Jason all the time "oh a friend mentioned the other day that..." so I'm not constantly saying "so this blogger I stalk says that flare jeans are back in a big way." Cue crazy eyes.

  2. I LOVE Blank Denim, and I have been eyeing that pair for so long, but I am super I don't know about the length. The price might be too good to pass up though.

  3. One sided blog friendships, me!

    I am in dire need of new camis so this is awesome. Thank you, Grace and Fran!

  4. Are the tanks good and long??


    also, glad you like frank's tanks. they're the best :)

  6. I found some great camis on zulily. They're super long so I can wear them over leggings and be appropriately covered. Because I believe leggings can sometimes be pants. Especially when you don't get out much.

  7. oh I need a deep pore cleanse without the flaky stuff--thought I was the only one!

  8. I love Burts Bees tinted lip gloss so I can't wait to try out the lipstick. Years ago I used this Aztec cream and completely forgot about it, I need to try it out again!

  9. hahaha! I always tell my sister that "Grace is my best friend. She just doesn't know I exist." HAHA! My FA-VO-RITE blogger!

  10. Labels: Other Better Blogs - dying with laughter at that. You're awesome, our one-sided friendship will last forever, I am sure!
