Weekly Obsessions

Weekly Obsessions X

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 πŸ™‚

St. Anne Tote form Barrington Gifts

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.

Moisturizing Gloves

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.

Polarized Ray Bans

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

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.

Question of the day: What’s one thing you’ve been obsessed with this week?

  1. I really like your tote bag! Good for you for accomplishing so much! Additionally, those gloves seem like an exceptional idea (I have been using Bag Balm for my dry hands, classy!) This week I am obsessed with sleeping and hanging out in the sunshine (also, backbends and rose wine!) I guess, I am a little obsessed this week πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so happy I bought the tote. The gloves are awesome! Before my mom gave me them, I would sleep with socks on to help soak up the lotion lol. So the gloves are much classier. Sunshine after winter is the BEST! Enjoy it πŸ™‚

  2. I used to have to use moisturizing gloves every night! My hands were so dry, they were scabbed, cracked, and bleeding. It was terrible! Lathering on a good hand cream and then gloves at night made all the difference in the world!!

  3. that tote is cute, bit big for me, but I love the print. I don’t think I could wear gloves to bed (I can’t wear socks to sleep either) something about it doesn’t work for me, but my hands sure could use the extra moisture. moving from FL to PA that is one of the big things is the dryness of winter. hope you enjoy your weekend

  4. Sometimes I sleep with gloves on to help with moisturizing, but I think I need better gloves! The ones I wear tend to get kind of sticky from the lotion.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Your new tote is so pretty! What a great gift to yourself. I hope you and Alex have a great weekend! I didn’t have the day off, either, but had less dogs to walk so it was kind of an easier day!

    Love the glove + lotion idea. I used to do that when I was a little girl, except I’d use socks haha. This method sounds much better!

    Something I’m obsessed with lately: peppermint tea!

  6. That’s a super cute tote. I have been carrying a small cross-body bag for a couple years but I will be switching back to my larger tote so that I can carry around more stuff haha πŸ™‚ I never have enough room in the small one πŸ™‚

  7. Ooo that tote is gorgeous! I treated myself to a Coach tote for work at the start of the year and have loved it. A new one will just have to wait.
    Polarized sunglasses are on my list, but need to find a place that sells kid onesπŸ˜‚
    I always enjoy Michael Pollan books so I’ll look for that on Netflix!
    Happy Easter:)

    1. I am so happy with the tote! Definitely worth the money in my opinion.
      Ray bans may sell kids sunglasses but I’m not positive. Hopefully you find some polarized ones soon!
      I didn’t realize Cooked was a book until I googled it. I’m definitely enjoying the show so I bet I’d like the book too.
      Happy Easter AJ!

      1. Yup I’ve learned the hard way that some things are just worth spending more money on!
        Michael Pollan has written a ton of good booksπŸ˜ƒ
