Hi, everyone! It’s been a while. I’ve been sharing snippets and my latest projects on instagram where I really didn’t have to sit and think about my thoughts as deeply as I do here. Somehow sharing recipes, baking projects and items that I loved seemed like it was irrelevant with what was going on. I think many other bloggers have felt the same. But 2021 seemed like a good time to get back on the train. Even though the first week of it seemed like it really was a continuation of December 2020.
Anyway, I popped in to share some of my favorite buys of 2020. Because tbh, I never get tired of seeing other people’s list and retail therapy is very much real.
RZIV Women’s Sleeveless Sweater Dress in White – I’d live in this every day if I could. It’s thick, stretchy, and one size so you don’t have to guess what size you are. It also looks and feels way more expensive than it really is.
GorGin Silicone Whisk– My upper body strength is nothing to brag about so heavy kitchen tools and I don’t mix. While a metal balloon whisk is a staple in any pantry, I love how lightweight this whisk is and it’s sturdy enough to whisk heavier sauces and frosting. Bonus: it won’t scratch up your beloved Le Creuset dutch oven.
Tna The Super Puff™ Long in Matte Pearl – Northeastern NJ winters are no joke and this coat is super lightweight and extremely warm. How light is it? Mr. Spatula and I went to the mall yesterday and he was carrying it in a shopping bag the entire time. When I removed it to wear outside, he was surprised that the shopping bag was almost the same weight as when he was carrying the coat!
Uniqlo Seamless Down Long Coat – A cheaper alternative to the Super Puff and not as warm but it’s a fraction of the price. I wore this all winter 2018 and it served me well.
Happy shopping and please share your awesome finds in the comment section. I’d love to check it out 🙂

Hi! Just sharing some cute spring finds that make me think of warmer weather. I don’t know about you, but I miss going to the movies, eating brunch, and generally walking outside without worry. Hang in there! Please keep up the social distancing, because the more stringent we are now, the faster we can flatten the curve.
How are you doing today? I feel like it is more important now than ever to check up on the people around us. As a natural introvert, being isolated is not a problem for me. But the general atmosphere of cheerlessness even has this wallflower wilt a little. All the gyms are closed so I’ve been jumping rope for exercise and trying to learn how to jog while jumping rope like Rocky. I tend to laugh whenever I trip up and it echoes eerily in the air from the silence. It’s an uncertain time in the world, but I’ve been getting small joys in cooking good food, playing gin rummy and retail therapy (it’s proven to boost your mood). Here are some links to keep you entertained because cheers to social distancing and banding together to #flatteningthecurve.
It’s the first day of spring and feels like 33˚F here which doesn’t exactly translate to the start of warm weather. But looking at flowers blooming around the world will get you there.
Looks like I’m not the only one playing gin rummy.
Hold your horses, Halloween candy is already in stores. As much as I love the transition of summer to fall, it’s just too early! Here are some of my favorite things this summer:
This embroidered v-neck dress. I love the ruffle detail around the waist and the flattering cut. Eat as much as you want, your belly won’t show. 😉
How cute is this eyelet top? The bows on the shoulder lets you adjust the length and is so on-trend.
The perfect summer blue skirt will give even your simplest white shirt a romantic twist.
This primer is admittedly a luxe buy, but worth every penny. I usually don’t bother with primer but this is holy grail status. It doesn’t make me break out, or dry out my already dry skin, and makes foundation go on super smooth. No pilling or patchiness here! Plus, the refreshing cucumber scent makes it a treat to put on in the morning.
Love the different stripes on this shirt. Plus, the round zipper gives it a retro twist.
I’ve been eyeing these loafers for so long. The sling back detail keeps it from being basic and the design is so classic.
Warm weather stirs up my wanderlust and I’m in love with these suitcases. They come in many colors but the navy is my favorite.
How are you spending your summer? Any favorites you want to share with me?
