The only thing better than ELEMIS' Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm is ELEMIS’ Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm at a DISCOUNT. Use code LOVEMARY for 20% off when treating yourself to some Valentine’s Day love from ELEMIS. Personally, I will be celebrating the day by indulging in their Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask while taking a bath in their Musclease Herbal Bath Synergy followed by a thick coating of my holy grail Superfood Facial Oil. See you there.
I love keeping this simple phone stand device at my desk—it comes in handy so often. I had a previous version years ago, and after accidentally leaving it at a hotel I finally repurchased this one recently which has dramatically improved the functionality of my desk space. It’s completely adjustable, and please note the 24 thousand 5-star reviews.
I recently received a custom sweatshirt from Lu & Co as a gift and I think these are the most darling and thoughtful items to send. Any time you can personalize something with a name or special reference, it makes the gift all the more meaningful. These sweatshirts are also super affordable, so they could also be fun bridesmaid or girls trip gifts, too (whenever those things happen again!).
The Snack Olympics I mean Superbowl was yesterday, but let me be clear that we should all be ready and able to make delicious munchables at any point in the year (especially at any point in a pandemic). I made this chicken recipe recently which I appreciate for its ease, and its cheese. I will not be waiting for sports to make this again.
You might recall the famous leather leggings from Ann Taylor that I couldn’t stop raving about. (I mean, I still haven’t.) I was recently delighted to discover that Loft sells the SAME LEGGINGS in two gorgeous suede options that are joining my collection immediately. These leggings are insanely comfortable but also manage to effortlessly elevate your winter outfits.
Did my grandmother own several of these zip-up bathrobes? Yes. Am I now angry with myself for not copying her ways sooner? Also yes. This wearable cloud is a dream during my winter mornings, especially while pregnant when any ties around the waist are unwelcome. It’s also 100% going in my hospital bag. If you need me, I’ll be inside of this until June.
P.S. After sharing this robe on instastories yesterday I heard from several of you that Barefoot Dreams also makes an amazing version, too!
This audience is well aware of my love for vintage Chanel jewelry, or vintage Chanel anything. It might be the fact that Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I know Rich (sometimes?) reads these posts… but anyway, I can’t stop thinking about this necklace. Can you blame me? It’s a stunner. If you're a fan of vintage Chanel accessories, too, Shopbop always has a great selection from one of my favorite vintage shops in NYC, What Goes Around Comes Around.
These GORGEOUS heart-shaped earrings are precisely the Valentine’s Day self-gift we all deserve. While I love a minimalist jewelry moment, sometimes you just want to go a little bit big. Wear them with your favorite romantic looks, or when you just need to zhush up your Zoom ensembles.
And now, I present to you the most stunning tapered candles on the planet. The spiraled, lacquered style is an upgrade of your typical taper, and you can find them here and here. I just purchased a burgundy pair for Valentine's Day dinner, and they are truly works of art. I'm going to feel guilty burning them.
I mean, the name kind of says it all, but HOW CUTE IS THIS leather scrunchie? It’s been almost a full year of a pandemic, one where style is on the back burner and safety is #1. Every now and then, it’s really nice to find a stylish accessory you can wear every day and feel a little bit of a boost.
I am currently very determined to get back into needlepointing because I have my heart set on making pillows for the girls’ room (how wild is that to say) like these or these. If you’re not ready for a large scale project yet, you can try a smaller embroidery project to get a feel for the fun of needle and thread vibes. There are several months left of winter, it's time to get crafty.
I love a good mascara discovery, but people...THIS IS THE ONE. This mascara is magical, achieving volume, separation, and length as I have NEVER experienced before. It’s incredible for the price point (or ANY price point), and if you need further proof, check out the reviews and know that beauty gurus are hoarding this stuff like crazy making it increasingly hard to find. I originally discovered it via @kathleenjenningsbeauty on Instagram who performed several comparison tests with much more expensive alternatives and this one was consistently the champion. Now that I have it in my possession (and speaking as someone who is EXTREMELY picky about mascaras) I can say that I’m officially amazed by its powers. I wear it in the "Washable Very Black" formulation and am amazed that I haven't spotted a shred of smudging or flaking. For me, smudging under my eyes is a perpetual problem, even with formulas that seem to be smudge-proof on other people. However, this stuff does. not. budge. I absolutely love it.
Last week, I shared my love of fondue sets, as this has quickly become one of my favorite quarantine activities. But, for those wondering what actually goes IN THEM, I thought I’d share some ideas: Rich and I will be enjoying two different fondue recipes on Valentine’s Day, one cheese, and one chocolate. Just trust me and DIP ALL THE THINGS IN THESE THINGS.
