Francesca's Sale: 50-70% off

All of these items are pretty affordable anyways, but with the sale, these are great prices. A tiny bit over my price point but I got some basics that would be totally worth it at full price. To be fully transparent, from the sale, I purchased:

  • Cream fur coat for $27
  • Cognac suede skirt for $19
  • Black pom pom sweater for $27

What I Bought on Amazon: July 2020

Another day, another dolla, another month of Amazon purchases!

I put a poll on IG asking if you guys wanted to see the things I didn't keep from Amazon as well so that portion is added onto the button of this post! 

Women's Yoga Short

Ever since summer (and quarantine) hit, I’ve been working out and ton and living in lounge wear. These shorts are probably the third pair of workout shorts I’ve bought in the last few months but they. were.  necessary.

I’m not a fan of the biker short trend (I was the queen of this trend in elementary school and I think I’ve hit my quote of bike shorts in my life) and these are short enough that I don’t feel like a frump.

What I wanted in a new pair of shorts was: high waisted, a couple inch inseam (these are 4”), comfortable, durable, and ideally with some compression and these were perfect! They aren’t super tight and I wish they had a bit more compression to them but overall, I like them. 

I’m 5’5”, 135 lbs and wearing a size M. I probably could have gone with the S but my worst fear was having them too tight and a muffin top would begin to form so I decided to go with the larger size, but I think in general, they run pretty TTS and you could go with your normal size!

Current Favorites: Old Navy Activewear Pieces

Since I'm not quite back to real life yet (I go into our office 3x a week, WFH for 2) and have been steadily working out, I've really only been buying activewear and loungewear lately. I wanted to share a few of my favorites and give you my sizing suggestions! 

2. Lightweight Racerback Performance Tanka little large, I'd get your normal size or even go down one
4. Seamless Light Support Sports Bra - go up a size (this is seamless, comfortable with a bit of compression to it)

What I Bought on Amazon: June 2020

Amazon Prime Purchases

Spoiler alert: this month has been full of necessities and randos. Enjoy!

L'Oreal Paris Makeup Brow Stylist Definer Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil

Even pre-pandemic, I was trying to go to the grocery store/shopping less. I've had friends ordering their groceries of Amazon Prime for what, maybe years now, but I'm not quite there. I've moved on to Instacart and still do my weekly Trader Joe's trip because I like to pick out my own produce 🤓

Anyways, one day I decided to get my eyebrow pencils (I'm very fancy) on Amazon because I was in dire need - bless you 2 day shipping, bless you. I set up my account for a subscription style delivery and now they deliver my eyebrow pencils at the exact time that I need them every month. Subscribe and save is the way to go!

Abercrombie & Fitch Sale: 50% off + 15% off

Abercrombie is having an incredible sale through Tuesday and I really can't believe these prices!

I am such a bargain shopper and honestly, rarely spend over $25 on one item (unless it's something important or a solid pair of shoes) so when I saw bathing suit bottoms for under $15 and shorts for $25 I about died.

And if I was rolling in the dough, here are all the things I'd love to get for myself!

But to be transparent, here is what I personally bought from the sale:

How to Keep Sane During the 2020 Quarantine

Hola compadres. Hope you're all holding up nicely so far in the apocalypse!

I'm not here to give you a pep talk about how we are all in this together and how you should stay home (BUT YOU SHOULD BE STAYING HOME) because there are way too many messages about that right now, I simply wanted to put together a list of things I've been doing to keep myself occupied!

I know there are a million lists out there for things to do while we await the conquering of COVID-19 and I almost didn't put together this list, but you never know when ideas will spark something new for someone else!

Here's my list of things to do to keep sane during the 2020 quarantine...
