April Recommendations



The end of April already and nary one day outside in short sleeves. I won't dwell on that, not today, because today is recommendation day.

1. Cancel shit you don't need. I was getting the Walmart Beauty Box ($5 every few months) and yeah, it's only $5 like three or four times a year but I don't need it so it's gone. I passively received it for like two years and barely used anything from it. Waste of money and just waste in general.

2. Try on every article of clothing you own. I cannot believe how much shit I've been holding onto that I don't even like. Thanks to Chelsea for this inspiration - that's a general link, I can't find specifically where she mentioned this..

3. This linen and room spray. In the scent of your choice, of course. Pictured is a special no longer available scent. I'm currently using Pear Blossom Agave at home and Sea Salt Neroli  at the shore.

4. Support the Real Justice PAC if fixing our broken criminal justice system is important to you. What has made national news just over the last week shows how much racial bias exists in society and that carries over a million fold into the criminal justice system. You can't change the system from the outside. You need to hammer at it from inside and out. That's where Real Justice PAC comes in - getting DAs in office who are committed to fixing what is broken and reforming structural racism within the criminal justice system. I'm a small time monthly donor. It is worth it to me. Is it worth it to you? We have got to start putting our money where our mouth is and using our mouths to speak out against injustice and inequality that is plain as day.

5. Go to bed early just for the feeling of resting in bed with the windows open. Finally. Bonus points if you're climbing into fresh sheets.

6. Soom Pure Ground Sesame Tahini PasteIf you make your own hummus at home, Soom is where it's at. It's what they use at Zahav.

7. Cranberry Bladder Bites for DogsMae has had a lot of bladder issues in her young life, even more now that she's on consistent steroids. These are awesome.


Any recommendations from you this month?

  1. I canceled a beauty box (or 2) a couple years ago for the exact same reason! xo,Biana-BlovedBoston

  2. I really need to go through my closest & try everything on. I actually don't have a ton of clothes, but I still probably don't wear close to half of what is in there & feel like I can't/shouldn't buy new clothes that I would wear until I get rid of some.

  3. Ha, I got so excited when I got the confirmation email from Walmart box! It's the only one I still get though, and I usually do like and use the majority of the products. I was just thinking last night how I'm going to try on everything once I switch over to spring clothing. I know there's a lot in there that I don't like and/or don't wear. I actually started drafting a similar post because I thought the linkup was yesterday, but then I didn't see it posted and my "recommendations" were all TV/movie related and I just couldn't get motivated to finish it. Can't say I've been trying a lot of new things lately either.

  4. I need to do another try on everything closet declutter but I need like maybe 2-ish more weeks, because most of what I want to replace is winter wear and we're still in the 40s here today. Once it warms up I can be more ruthless with my pants and sweaters.
    Hell yes to going to bed early, I've been in bed (reading) by 8 pm every night this week.

  5. I hate when you try & go & cancel things & they give you line after line & then a deal to try & make you stay. & even worse, where you cant cancel online anymore - a lot of things, you gotta CALL about - that's even more infuriating!

  6. I have a few more things I need to cancel, thanks for the reminder. I love the idea of trying everything on! I am putting that on the list.

  8. I cancelled my Allure beauty box over a year ago and I cant say I miss it. I always got stuff from the same few brands and once I find something I really love that is the HG, it is hard for me to want to use other less than stuff anyways. You know. I am actually in the process of a MAJOR closet purge right now. Let go of that shit!

  9. Yesterday I tacked the Great Closet Reorganization to switch out to my spring/summer clothes and tried on EVERYTHING but it was so helpful to figure out what I actually WANT to wear this year.

  10. I received the Walmart box forever and never used it, either... it took me way too long to cancel it. I loved Chelsea's suggestion about clothes, too. I am going to work on that this weekend.

  11. Ooooh I am a tahini addict, must try this one. My fave is TJ's. And you are so right about trying on all of your clothes. I figure I wear 25% of my closet on the regular. Not cool.

  12. Oooh, I might have to get those cranberry bladder bites for Lylee-Bear. Her gut gets pretty unhappy sometimes...
    I definitely need to try on all my clothes and donate the no-goods.

  13. I need to try on all the old clothes in my closet this weekend since we're trying to do a closet "spring cleaning" to donate to Goodwill. K has done a great job with 3 trash bags full....me not so much as yet! Good to know about the Cranberry Bladder Bites.

  14. Ok now I need to make my own hummus at home - yum!

  15. Once a year I go through my clothes. It's amazing how much we hold onto for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Fresh sheets... you just reminded me that I need to change mine!

    I should go through my clothes again. I still have some that I'm hoping to one day fit into again. *Sigh*
