Friday Finds: No. 163

Happy Friday from the SNOW GLOBE that is Chicago! ☃️ After having just one snow right before Christmas, it’s been a pretty sight to see our new neighborhood dusted in white. Still getting used to shoveling and putting down salt, since our buildings used to take care of that before, but it hasn’t been too strenuous so far.

Pretty as it is, I’m hoping the snow doesn’t affect our flights on Sunday! We’re heading out to California for a week for a little change of scenery since we both work from home. Not quite a vacation from work, but such a treat being able to walk to the beach and soak up some sunshine.

Hope you have a lovely weekend ahead!

What I Shopped & Browsed This Week

Serena & Lily’s fresh start event is happening now! Use code UPGRADE to save 20% off everything, or 25% off orders of $5,000+. Sale styles are included, too!

I considered this dresser for our bedroom, but sadly we need 60″ or smaller. In previous apartments, I had these counter stools and absolutely loved them! They’re surprisingly comfy and held up so well for the five years I had them… Still looked brand new when I sold them. We currently have this lamp in our living room and ordered these sconces for beside our bed.

I’ve been living in this hoodie. I got a medium, but would maybe order another color in a large. It’s TTS, but I like my sweatshirts oversized.

Necessaire just launched their Body Cream and I cannot wait to try it!

I’m eyeing this black boucle pouf for our living room! We don’t have that much seating for entertaining, so I thought it could be a nice low-profile way to add in some texture and also an extra seat.

I’ve been hooked on Liquid IV for years, but I’ve been trying to cut back on sugar lately and looking for a similar low-sugar alternative. I found this electrolyte hydrating powder on Thrive Market, but if you don’t have a membership, it’s also on Amazon in more size options if you want to test it out. (PS: You can use this link to get 40% off your first Thrive Market order!)

Did I need a set of Valentine’s Day pajamas? Probably not. But this set is an extra 30% off today, making them only $21. Had to!

How pretty is this sage green moto jacket?!

These sneakers are on my spring must-have list!

Sadly, my size is the only size sold out, but I have a feeling these pants will look *so* good on.

You know I’m all about a cotton sweater because of the non-itchiness! Everlane’s Cotton Cardigan is calling my name in every single color. This citrusy color is going to be huge for spring, but you can’t go wrong with cappuccino, cream, or black.

Not-so-patiently waiting for this plaid cardigan to go on sale.

The prettiest lilac dress for any upcoming vacations! Only $139.

I feel like I need this oversized classic white poplin shirt.

What I Read & Listened to This Week

Still reading Atomic Habits by James Clear! (Currently 50% off, less than $15 if you’ve been interested.)

Podcast wise, mainly just keeping up with the news via Group Chat.

The Best Money Management Tips from Meghan

Homemade Crunchwrap Supreme Recipe

Other Things of Note

I’ve been challenging myself to clean out my closet and be better about listing things on Poshmark! But FYI: I have to put my shop on ‘vacation mode’ on Saturday night since we’ll be leaving on Sunday. So if you want to order anything, make sure you get it in today or tomorrow unless you don’t mind waiting until February.

Have you guys had the VooDoo flavor of Zapp’s Chips?! Holy moly, they’re like salt & vinegar meets barbecue kind of?! So delish. I found them at Potbelly, but they’re on Amazon, too.

I missed the star-studded grand opening party this week, but I can’t wait to check out Alamo Drafthouse Cinema sometime soon! Dave is a big movie buff and since it opened not too far from us in Wrigleyville, I’m sure it will be a place we frequent the rest of this winter. Film, food, and drink all in one spot… What more could you ask for?!
