I know the term “obsessed” is a *little* overused in the blogger community, but trust me when I say that I don’t shop or buy things a lot, so when I say I’m obsessed with something, it means I can’t stop talking about it. Here are 5 things that I have been recommending to everyone I know!
1. The Luv Scrub
I have heard many people talk about this mesh cloth on the internet, and decided recently that it was time to try it for myself. And let me tell you, I am never ever ever using a loofah again.
The Luv Scrub is a mesh cloth that is incredibly exfoliating and can last for up to 18 months (!!!). It’s made of nylon but feels nice to the touch. I put a little bit of shower gel on it and later it up! I use it all over my body and since it’s like a long piece of fabric, I also shimmy it up and down my back to get my back all clean too! I then rinse it off and let it hang on my shower head to dry.
The Luv Scrub is $18 which seems like a high price point until you realize you’ve been buying $6 loofahs every month your whole life. I am TRULY obsessed and think everyone needs one!
2. The Hill House Nap Dress
This was another Internet Thing™ that I couldn’t help but purchase for myself. I have been living in leggings and t-shirts and wanted to spice things up with comfy yet flattering and feminine dresses. Enter the Hill House Nap Dress. People talk about this dress like it’s going to achieve world peace and I have to say, it’s coming pretty close. The dress is sooo pretty and feminine–Idan literally said “you look like a Disney Princess” which is honestly all I could really want?? The dress sells out within minutes but with this latest launch there are a few left. I personally ordered the Ellie Nap Dress in blue, but there are a lot of different styles!
3. This Banana Bread Recipe
I got this recipe from my mother in law and make it ALL the time. I know this is a shameless plug for my ~own blog~ but I feel the need to bump this recipe up to the top of your to-make list.
Idan and I have loved playing Monopoly Deal together during this quarantine period; it’s such a quick game that is perfect for 2 players! Rounds are done within 15 mins so you don’t have to worry about being up until 2am finishing a game–unless you get addicted, that is. You can also buy this at any Walgreens/Duane Reade! It’s about $7 for a deck.
5. The Buy Nothing Project
I am a huge fan of reducing the amount of waste in the world, and have always felt that half of the things I donate to thrift stores get thrown out anyways. Enter the Buy Nothing Project! Buy Nothing is a series of Facebook groups in thousands of communities where neighbors post things they’re giving away, or things they are in need of. The Buy Nothing group in my neighborhood is absolutely thriving; I’ve gotten so many things from my neighbors that they were going to toss in the trash, and I’ve been able to give away things to people who actually want them!
For example, a few months ago I was in need of a specific book and posted asking my neighbors if they had a copy. Sure enough, someone had one to give away and I had a copy of it within the hour!
There’s a lot of junk on there, but also a lot of really good things. If you’re not afraid of used things (some people feel weird about it, I get it!), definitely check it out.
