Weekly Reads and Finds sales and discounts Jungle Fever Feb 16 2018

My two new shirts came in the mail today and I am thrilled with them. I was little concerned with not being able to try them on since H&M can have weird sizing. These shirts ran in 2, 4, 6, 8…. number sizes vs the s, m, l, so I was debating the size. Since I 99.9% of the time take a small in their tops I checked their size chart and opted for the 6 instead of the 4 I was leaning towards because they listed 2-4 as xs, and 6-8 as small, and I am glad that I did. While I probably could have got away with a smaller size in the wrap shirt, the black lace top has no give the to the fabric and a 6 fits perfect. I can’t wait to integrate them in to my wardrobe.

This week I was feeling animal/jungle inspired for my picks. I always think that I would love to have a very Scandinavian decor inspired house and then I see these bold prints, colours, and patterns and think that I would love to have them everywhere. Maybe I can find a nice balance between the two, but I just really have a thing for jungle cat prints. Speaking of, have you seen this Gucci wallpaper? I would LOVE to have a wall of this (or maybe this one or this one from Anthropologie). I haven’t wallpapered anything since my mom let me do a room makeover when I was 12 or so. I think I am due for a wallpaper fest 😉


Weekly Reads (and maybe videos):

    • Stop Shaming Women for Spending Money. “When Hillary Clinton gets a $600 haircut, she’s an out-of-touch narcissist. But Donald Trump can literally coat his entire home in gold and still be taken for a man of the people.” So true and so obnoxiously sad.
    • And this is why I make sure that my kids get a good foundation of phonics. I also fill the house with great books to be read aloud by me or solo (for Roo). I think being exposed to these books at a really young age helped to make her a voracious reader.
    • I really love soups and even better I love soups that are homemade with minimal ingredients so I am stoked to try some of these Healthy, 5-Ingredient (or Less) Soup Recipes to Make This Winter.
    • This new show Everything Sucks! looks good. I was 16 in 1996 so it kind of really resonates.
    • Why oh why can’t someone come and organize and meal prep my fridge to like this? Any volunteers?
