I picked a tarot card this morning. The wheel of fortune. It signifies change, destiny, good luck and new directions. But that was after the tsunami warning canceled my Hermosa Beach yoga plans. And after the rain canceled my last-minute Silver Lake Reservoir walk plans. And after I didn’t go out to get a fancy coffee. I just had one from the Keurig.
So I’m hoping my luck changes.
For whatever reason, my The Best Things I Have Purchased At Erewhon post keeps getting clicks. But I don’t have any Erewhon recommendations today. Just a homemade puppy chow of salty, sweet deliciously random links. I hope you like them.
I’m not doing Veganuary. I’m just trying to eat more vegetables. I’ve been cooking my way through The Weekday Vegetarians and posting my progress via Instagram. You guys keep asking me to send you photos of recipes but I would like to remind you that Google is in fact, free. I got about five requests for this super-green pasta recipe made with kale pesto. It was VERY easy to find online.
The Kardashians like this salad dressing and so do I. Special shoutout to the El Co shopping center. Real ones know East Coast Bagel and always see Howie Mandel sitting outside the Starbucks.
If you know me, you know I love California Chicken Cafe. I have made this CCC Chinese chicken salad dupe to much success, multiple times.
Do we think this vegan calamari could be good? I have all the ingredients for it.
Has anyone been to Little Barn Coffee House? I really want to go.
The Girl Scouts have a new cookie out and if you have a daughter/niece/cousin/friend who is a Girl Scout, I would like to buy these from them!!
Really craving an M&M cookie rn.
I watched The Worst Person in the World last night and it felt like swallowing a pair of scissors (emotionally).
Are you watching Yellow Jackets? Let’s talk about it. I think I’m a Jackie 😦 Anyway, Showtime turned the soundtrack into a Spotify playlist. It reminds me deeply of my time in the Midwest.
Are you trying to get into ASMR videos as a way to relax? I freakin LOVE this one.
The TikTok girlies were right: This is the best concealer.
So, who is going to try this new tinted Supergoop! CC Cream?
These are my favorite jeans I have ever owned. Don’t go for the weird diagonal button. Pick the regular button. They are super high-waisted, comfortable enough to wear all day and make your legs look 10000 miles long.
Still not back on hard pants? These are the softest lounge shorts I have ever worn.
Costco has Pendleton sherpa fleece blankets for $30.
Does anyone feel like buying me these boots?
Remember when I really wanted this $2,100 Balenciaga le cagole shoulder bag? I found a $70 dupe. HINT! HINT! TO ANYONE BUYING ME A VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT!
No idea what this smells like but the bottle is so pretty. I want it.
The next Okay to Rest drop is happening soon. Trying to remember this while I chill out during my day of canceled plants.
HOUSE STUFF ? IDK WHAT TO CALL THIS SECTION:
I ❤ my Amazon Basics food processor. Gonna make this hummus with it.
I need some art for a blank wall in the kitchen. Honestly, I might get this.
Looking for a wall clock that looks like this but isn’t $300. 😡 Lmk if you find one.
Ready to replace my bedroom mirror with this massive one.
Dan, can we pretty please get this bed frame?? Or this one.
Okay it is now 1:36 p.m. which means it’s time to mope in the living room and consume a full mason jar of water.
