Happy Friday, friends! I hope your week has treated you well, but even if it was less than great we’ve arrived at the weekend!
Today I’m sharing five things that have piqued my interest or things that have been on my mind / going on in my life recently.
In case you missed it, earlier this week I shared my picks for filling Baby’s Easter Basket. I know not everyone is in the same sage of life here, but I wanted to share a reminder just in case because Easter is upon us in a little over a week now!
I found this article about how people’s behaviors have worsened recently and it was a super interesting read. If you’ve made this same observation, I think you’ll find it enlightening!
Lizzo has teamed up with Fabletics to create a size-inclusive shapewear brand called YITTY which launches on April 12th! I’m all for creating products for the general demographic and including all shapes and sizes! Go, Lizzo!!!
As someone who previously worked for this company and practically lived & breathed the brand (lol —sorry for the grainy-ass photo… this was taken in 2010 and phone / digital camera quality was truly terrible), I’m super interested in watching the Abercrombie & Fitch Documentary on Netflix coming out on April 29th(?). I will admit/agree that there was 100% problematic behavior in the time period that the brand is being held accountable for, but I do believe that as a company they have made strides toward improvement in recent years — not only with their products (both style and quality), but also in the way they manage their business / treat people, are more inclusive, etc.
I, for one, am really proud of them for turning the brand around and making this “comeback” because they remain one of my favorite stores, especially for finding jeans. They work so well for my body type! Anyway, I’m looking forward to watching this exposé!
I recently stumbled upon these frosé tumblers and I’m in love with them. Essentially, you pour all of your boozy beverage ingredients into the tumblers, pop them into the freezer for a few hours and then squeeze the silicone lower half to create the slushy effect! The top half is insulated to prevent your hand from getting cold while sipping your yummy drink. They’re pretty amazing and PERFECT for the summer months. Get a pair for yourself and a pair for your bestie so you’re stocked up for any weekend adventures to the pool, beach, park, etc! On that note: what a perfect segue for my signoff…
Have a great weekend, friends!
Sending hugs —
