Happy Friday! Do you guys have today off from Good Friday? I feel like it’s one of those days that some people have off and others don’t. Personally I don’t have to day off but I am leaving early. Even a few hours makes a difference to me! Alex and I are staying put for the holiday this year since neither of us have time off so it just seemed to make sense to stay in New Jersey for the weekend. I hope you all get to spend the weekend with those you love. Happy Easter to those that celebrate! Happy Passover as well to those who observe that holiday too!
Before we crank through the last few hours of work, I want to share a few things I’ve been obsessed with this week. Have a great weekend 🙂
This tote has been on my wishlist for almost a year, maybe even longer. I ended up buying it as a treat yourself gift once all of my student loans were paid off. I’ve been loving it! Everything from the print to the color of the leather is perfect. I’ve used it for a few weeks now and even took it with me for a weekend trip. The size is awesome! In the tote, there’s a big sip pocket on the back and then three smaller pockets on the front. It’s perfect for work and fits my computer, planner, book, wallet, and empty containers from my lunch. The bag is awesome because you can customize the fabric you want and the color of the leather straps and trim. I highly recommend it.
Recently my hands have been so dry. I don’t really know why either since I try to use lotion after every time I wash my hands. I remembered that I had these gloves tucked away and pulled them out. They have been amazing! I load up on lotion before bed then throw these gloves on. They help my hands suck up as much moisture as possible. In the mornings, the gloves are still on my hands which I appreciate so I don’t have to hunt under the covers for them. The ones I own were a Christmas gift last year but I believe they are the brand Earth Therapeutics.
These are not new sunglasses by any means. I’ve had them almost two years but I love them. With the time change and spring quickly approaching I feel like the sun has been incredibly strong. Having these sunglasses have been a lifesaver on the drive to and from work. I manage to drive into the sun both ways so having the polarized version is especially amazing for the sun rise. Normally I am a silver jewelry or accessory girl but with these I opted for gold frames with brown lenses and LOVE them. I got them in the standardized size (I believe) and they fit my face perfectly. If you’re in the market for new sunglasses I highly recommend this pair.
Cooked is a documentary on Netflix that is done by Michael Pollan who wrote a book called Cooked as well. Each episode corresponds to one of the elements: fire, air, earth and water. He talks to experts, goes into the natural progression of food and tries to perfect something based on the element. For example for fire he worked on slow cooking a pig for a barbecue. I find the episodes incredibly interesting. If you enjoy cooking or how different cultures approach food I recommend checking this show out.
