Weekly Obsessions

Weekly Obsessions XIX

Happy Friday! How is it already Friday? The week absolutely flew by but no complaints on that. I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Also can we take a moment to recognize that it’s June 1st today. How is that possible?! May flew by for sure.

Today I want to share a few things that I have been obsessed with this week. Let me know something you’ve been obsessed with in the comments below. Have a great day 🙂

Simple Sterling Silver Ring

While shopping with my mom at a local boutique in my hometown, I came across a display of a bunch of simple sterling silver rings. Usually rings like this tend to be gold in my opinion and I prefer silver jewelry so it was nice to see them in silver. I tried them on for fun and what do you know, one magically ended up in  my hand and an unknown force pulled me to the register to buy it. To be honest I don’t even know what happened. Even though I didn’t go into shopping with the intention of buying anything I’m obsessed with this ring! It’s so simple but so pretty and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately I don’t know the brand that this exact ring is but this one looks almost identical to the one I have. For those interested, my nail color is O.P.I’s Mod About You.

The Wife Between Us

Due to the nature of this book, I can’t get too much into the plot without spoiling parts. I don’t want to be that person so I’m going to use the synopsis available because it should do a great job of hooking you in. “When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing. Twisted and deliciously chilling, Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen’s The Wife Between Us exposes the secret complexities of an enviable marriage – and the dangerous truths we ignore in the name of love. Read between the lies.”

I can honestly say I did not see the one plot twist coming. Once it happened, I could not wait to finish it. The authors did a fantastic job of keeping readers on their toes and I highly recommend picking this book up.

Brooks Juno Sports Bra

I was having issues with my old sports bras and decided to order one of these on a whim a few months ago. It became my go to sports bra and I needed to order a second one. It holds your chest in place and they don’t move. Amazing for any sort of high impact and intense workouts you have. One of my favorite things about it is that it’s based on your normal bra size. I find that it is true to size with the regular bra I wear so I recommend trying that size first. Brooks actually has an amazing return policy. You have 365 days to return anything with the tags on. In addition you are able to try it out for a workout to see how it performs for you or if it bothers you at all and are still able to return it after a 90 day trial run. Honestly you can’t beat that and I do not see myself straying to another brand or style sports bra.

Alex

You guys, I must give this special person a shout out. Alex was absolutely amazing this past week and just beyond sweet while I was feeling sick. Find the person who listens to you complain about how sick you feel for hours in the car, drives almost the entire way home while you take multiple naps, takes sole care of the puppy for two days and puts up with your crappy mood while feeling like you’re going to die. Seriously that’s how you know you’re with the right person.

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

  1. I love that ring! I own a lot of clunky rings, and they’re just not my style these days.
    Also, so glad to see you’re feeling better! The stomach bugs have been so rough this year. I’ve (knock on wood) managed to avoid them, but my whole family has been hit hard by them on and off this winter/spring!

    1. Isn’t it such a cute ring?! I honestly love it soo much! I have 4 rings that I wear every day now, 2 are simpler like this one and 2 are more thicker so I love the balance they give.

      Thank you so much Kerri! I honestly can’t remember the last time I got sick (when it wasn’t from drinking – thanks college) and man it was brutal! I’m jealous you avoided it since I had pain for days.

  2. I just bought two new sports bras through Brooks yesterday and I’m super excited to try them out! I recently tried running in just a sports bra and shorts and it was life changing in the heat. Unfortunately my sports bras are all just cheapy Walmart ones and I felt like I needed ones a bit nicer. Of course I had to treat myself! I’m hoping I love them!

    Alex sounds like such a great guy! You’re so right that someone who is there for you like that is a keeper 🙂

    1. Girl yes!! I love running in just a sports bra and shorts. It’s amazing and so much better than being uncomfortable in a workout shirt or tank. What style bras did you order from Brooks?!

      Oh he’s amazing 🙂 I’m SO happy with him and can’t wait for our future together!

  3. i love the Juno sportsbra! It’s the only one I’ve found that gives me enough support for running. I have one spot on my back where the bra chafes, but the bra works so well that I am willing to put up with it (I just tuck my shirt under the band to keep it from chafing).

    1. That’s so weird that happens because I haven’t experienced it! It seriously the best sports bra and I just love Brooks return policy and that you can try it on workouts for 90 days to see how it works. Unheard of!

    1. Thank you!! I actually bought that dress last year as one for graduation but didn’t wear it. Don’t tell anyone but I had to cut the tag off before we went lol. A healthy weekend is the plan for us! Enjoy yours 🙂

    1. Buy a bunch of different sizes! With the return policy as good as it is, I think it would be simple to buy a bunch then return the size that doesn’t fit. Although your wallet may hurt for a bit haha

  4. That ring really is so pretty! I also tend to prefer silver jewelry over gold and it seems like gold is a very popular trend right now, so it can be more difficult to find silver. That is so beautiful in its simplicity so great find!!

    Also, I love that Alex took such great care of you! It truly makes all the difference in the world when your partner cares about you and takes care of you even when you’re sick and in a crappy mood, lol. That’s when you know they really truly love you no matter what haha.

    1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who isn’t a fan of gold! I mean I know some people prefer silver but wear gold since it’s trendy. Not me lol I want all my good jewelry or staples to be silver.

      Honestly that’s so true. If he still loves me after having the stomach flu then he’s the one ❤

  5. Love that ring! And your nail polish! So cute. I need to check out that sports bra. I’m always looking for a good one! That picture of you and Alex is adorable. I’m so glad you found a keeper with him!
