Trying to get your body swimsuit-ready for the warmer weather? Now is such a great time to stock up on some fitness goodies to get in shape for summer. Like I’ve mentioned before (in previous posts), working out requires motivation for me, and cute clothes certainly help! Athleta has some really fun options, but I’ve actually never tried their activewear…until now. I was pretty impressed by the fit, fashion and function of the pieces I tried.

I’m entering that stage in my life where it feels like everyone I know is becoming or is a new mama. I get to play auntie to adorable babies and kids, spoil them, and then give them back to their parents when the fun is over (best part of kids that aren’t yours, right?). However, that means that my devices have lately become the favorite toys (or distraction) for these kids, who are so tech-savvy at a young age. It was time to beef up the protection on those gadgets that could potentially be dropped, spilled on, etc. I looked to Griffin Technology‘s Survivor series, which is an “extreme-duty” case for your devices, to help me out.

Even though the days are warming up, it can still be cool at night. And lately on weekend nights, for me, there’s almost nothing better than cozying up with a throw, lighting a candle and catching up on magazines. I’m a big fan of Voluspa‘s Candles, and was so excited when they reached out about their newest collection, Maison Jardin.
The collection is composed of 4 fragrances:
Since I gravitate toward florals and citrus scents, I happily tried to the Sake Lemon Flower Maison Metallo Candle. This is a lovely tart scent, but the sake note tempers the citrus, preventing it from being overly sweet.
Their containers are so lovely, as well. This one has gorgeous vintage-inspired florals, and their double wick configuration always leaves the candle burning evenly. (Tip: Make sure it always burns to the edges to prevent tunneling and for continuous even burns.)
With the change in seasons, it’s always a great time to refresh your lingerie drawer – throw out the old, and bring in some new. We love Felina here at TDO, and this particular Christelle bra and boyshort set is particularly lovely! This style is super feminine and sexy, while still offering full coverage. The bra and undies both have sweet bows, with a little silvery sparkle edging. It’s slightly sheer, yet still slightly opaque – and would still look pretty even if it peeks out from a thin slouchy t-shirt (like this one) that we’re all throwing on weekends when the weather warms up.
Spring is here (or almost here for some of you!), and that means it’s time for spring cleaning. This time of year, I always try to clean house and look for great storage or organizational solutions. The Land of the Nod has lots of chic options that work for not only kids, but also adults.
I really love the Charming Baskets, which come in stripes, dots and herringbone (pictured above). The pattern is modern, yet also fits into multiple spaces and types of homes. The patterns are great to mix and match, but also work well by themselves or likely with other baskets you already have in your home. Even better, these baskets are “handmade in Senegal, West Africa by Wolof artisans using environmentally friendly, sustainable materials;” it’s always great knowing that your purchase helps others and is environmentally-friendly. I’m currently using mine for random throws and overally, as a catchall for the living room.
