This is the absolute least stylish thing I have ever posted and yet I am smitten! I am the world’s worst cook and I’m also clumsy as all get out, which means that nearly every time I cook I manage to cut myself with a knife or even more disgusting, take off some skin on a grater or peeler. I even have a scar on the top of my thumb that I got when I was about 8 and peeling potatoes with my grandmother. This is a life-long affliction!
If you’re as clumsy as I am then you, too, may be smitten with this fun find: a Cut Resistant Glove!
Seriously – This exists! And… Where has it been all my life?!
Here’s the description:
Lightweight and stretches for a comfortable breathable fit.
Cut resistant fiber blend technology makes it 4 times stronger than leather.
Protects fingers and knuckles against sharp kitchen utensils (knives, peelers, shredders, zesters etc.) as well as cutting machine/glass handling work.
Equal to a standard for level 5 cut resistance.
One size fits most : Fitted for both right and left handed use.
Machine washable, drip dry.
Open Sky has the Cut Resistant Glove on sale for $9.97 plus $3.95 shipping today. This will definitely be coming to my mailbox soon!
It has been awhile since I’ve done a Steal this Look post, but I couldn’t resist after I saw this image of Reese Witherspoon spotted out and about shopping in Beverly Hills. She looks so effortlessly chic and her ensemble is perfect for summer!
Reese is wearing the Alice + Olivia Vernon Jacquard Flared Skirt ($255 at Nordstrom), but the rest of the outfit is vague enough that I couldn’t place it. That said, I highly doubt the pieces are all that affordable considering she is carrying a Prada shopping bag!
If you want to steal Reese’s look, here are some pieces that will help you achieve a similar look for less (seriously less – everything is on sale!):
Though they’re not as loud about it as Target, Kohl’s has some fabulous designer collaborations of their own. For instance, it was just announced that Thakoon for DesigNation will launch later this fall and right now you can shop Milly for DesigNation… and it’s even on sale! The entire Milly for DesigNation Collection is 25% off for a limited time.
As an added bonus, it’s Kohl’s Cash time so you will earn $10 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent!
I personally find white a little hard to wear, but that is probably because I put on white and inevitably spill something on myself within minutes. If I weren’t so clumsy, however, I would be all about this Milly Striped Organza Crop Top (normally $50, now $37.50) and Milly Striped Organza Midi Skirt (normally $70, now $52.50).
They’re calling Milly “La Dolce Vita of Capri,” and while I don’t know much about Milly all of the designs do have the look of Capri to them. Particularly this You Me Capri Tee (normally $40, now $30). Navy and white stripes are back with a vengeance at the moment so this tee fits right in. It’s also available in red and white stripes or without stripes altogether.
A few years ago my husband and I went to Sorrento, Italy and now whenever I think back on our visit one of the first things that comes to mind is the amazing lemons that were as big as footballs. (Fun fact: Much of the world’s supply of limoncello is produced in and around Sorrento!) This Milly Citrus Combo Dress (normally $68, now $51) may be my favorite in the collection because it reminds me so much of that vacation! While we were in Sorrento we caught the ferry to Capri for the day, so the combination of this collection being designed for Capri and the lemon print is taking me right back to Italy. (Which, let’s be honest, is not a bad place to be!)
The entire Milly for DesigNation collection is gorgeous. Honestly – it might be my favorite designer collab of them all and it certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s on sale and didn’t sell out within seconds of the collection launching!
…and by “treat yourself,” I mean to treat all of your friends to this awesome card!
Rifle Paper Co. just released their latest set of designs in their collaboration with Garance Doré and this Drink Wine & Carry On Card is one of the new designs. I love it and plan to pick up one to send out to all of my friends (adorned with the new From Me to You Stamp), as well as one for myself to hang on the wall of my future office.
The card typically costs $4.50 (each) but in honor of the new collection all Garance Doré products are 15% off through April 28 so you’ll currently pay $3.83 per card.
After reading Cheryl’s Club W wine subscription review I had to subscribe myself and my first box of wine arrived yesterday, so I might write out all of my cards while enjoying a new bottle of moscato.
I wasn’t really feeling it with Birchbox this month, so thank goodness for Ipsy! In this month’s battle of these two $10 beauty boxes, Ipsy was definitely the big winner. In fact, I’d say this is one of the best bags I’ve received from Ipsy yet!
Without further ado, here’s what I received in my April Ipsy Bag:
While I like that Ipsy uses bags instead of boxes (I have a lifetime supply of boxes at this point), I’m not always a fan of the design as some bags look cheaper than others. (I know – who am I to complain about the bag that comes with my $10 shipment?!) This bag, however, I really like. It is perfect for summer!
theBalm Nude Dude Eyeshadow Single – I am super excited about this! I love theBalm Cosmetics and the eyeshadow in particular. The color I received is “flirty” is described as a shimmering violet. This is definitely a color I will be putting to good use! (I don’t think theBalm sells eyeshadow singles, but I could be wrong. I want to consider this a full-size product because it’s the exact size that comes in the full Nude Dude Palette.)
JulieG Nail Color in Damsel – Full Size Product – Bright pink is my go-to pedicure color during the summer, so I will definitely be getting good use out of this polish!
