You’ve likely seen me describe why Rich and I are so obsessed with the Ergatta Rower on my Instagram stories, but let’s revisit because my DMs are a constant flood of questions about the machine and whether my discount code is still good (it is and it's MARYO50). I love this rower for countless reasons, but if we’re zeroing in on why it’s a vital part of my fitness routine, let’s focus on the most important factors: First, the programming on the Ergatta rower is game-based, so essentially you feel like you’re playing a game while you work out. This means you never get bored even though you’re doing a repetitive movement. Second, the rowing itself burns twice the calories of running or spinning. To be clear: On this rower, I can get a better workout in 15 minutes than I could if I went for a 30-minute run. Lastly, rowing utilizes 85% of the muscles throughout your body, so with just one machine, you’re working out your lower body, core and upper body, while getting a low-impact cardio workout as well. Rich and I can't say enough good things about this machine (and we have tried MANY rowing machines), so I'll leave it there but if you're interested, use my code MARYO50 for $50 off! They also offer financing for $62/month which is a great option to consider. Oh, and it is basically a work of art designed to fold up against the wall so it takes up no space. OK I'M STOPPING NOW.
Vital information, friends. The Saks Friends & Family Sale is ending tomorrow! You’ve heard of “buyer’s remorse,” but have you ever heard of “sale-skipper’s remorse?” We do not speak of it. If the size and magnitude of the sale have you feeling overwhelmed, start with my selection of sale picks, here.
There is no children’s party brand that’s as aesthetically pleasing as Meri Meri. The brand is so good at finding that middle ground between childhood whimsy and elevated style. You almost want to frame some of these party essentials rather than use them. Easter is (quickly) approaching, so make sure you peruse every spring-y selection, stat. I ordered the gingham bunny napkins and the cookie cutters but everything is so cute.
I have a new obsession when it comes to special occasionwear and we need to talk about it. Rachel Gilbert creates countless stunning dresses you’ll be so happy to rely on for any upcoming celebrations, special events, etc. The dress I’ve linked here isn’t reading quite right on this model, but that’s because it’s too large for her. It comes in tons of colors and looks stunning when sized correctly!
Liza’s birthday is coming up, and I was recently researching options on Etsy, because of course you can find everything on Etsy. I love the idea of a fondant cake topper, because it lets you bake the cake yourself (saving $$ and adding a personal touch) but if your decorating skills aren’t the best you just give it a basic coat of frosting and sub in one of these fondant cuties to make it look professional!
I recently discovered In The Roundhouse and it was such a breath of fresh air when it comes to setting the table. Everything is whimsical yet chic and amazingly affordable for the quality. Many of their pieces are on sale here at Saks, and there are even more options to explore here. A set of their wave plates in all four colors just arrived at our house and I plan to use them to create a colorfully mis-matched table for Liza’s upcoming first birthday party dinner.
Listen, when your tagline is “sustainably made and attainably priced” I am ALL EARS. Pepper Home’s custom pillows, curtains, table linens, wallpaper (and lots more) are the perfectly-printed home decor finds that will soon make all of your solid colors jealous. This is also THE go-to spot for warm weather table linens, so get yours now and start planning some fun spring and summer gatherings.
You’re likely familiar with Sleeper, but did you also know that they’re a Ukrainian brand? As we remain mindful of the horrible situation in Ukraine, we can also continue to think of ways to help as much as we can. Sleeper is included in the Saks Friends & Family Sale, and all of their incredible loungewear is on sale. I’ve actually hosted multiple dinner parties wearing this feather set, which can be styled separately or together with fun accessories and jewelry for a unique (and comfortable!) party look.
Excellent news for our feet: Birdies has just released their first-ever lace-up sneaker! I got the Cardinal style option in gold and they are one of the most comfortable sneakers I’ve ever worn. But, it’s Birdies, so are we surprised? We are not surprised. These sneakers are perfectly supportive and cushioned for everyday wear, and they’re somehow also one of the most stylish footwear arrivals we’ve seen in quite a while. This is an easy yes.
You may have recently seen me wear the Athleta Triumph Lounge set (top and pants) as I demonstrated to my husband and indeed the world that packing six pairs of shoes for a 36-hour trip is not only justified but also necessary. But DID YOU KNOW that this is also the best-fitting, most comfortable lounge set in existence? It comes in an extensive size range that includes petite, regular and tall options, and you can shop it directly from my Reel by hitting the “View Products” button at the bottom of your screen!
Once you’ve made an artwork purchase and paid (quite a bit) to have it framed, wouldn’t it be nice if you could, I don’t know, see it? If you’ve ever searched for artwork lighting you may have noticed that it can be obscenely pricey. HOWEVER, I’ve found one that’s not and I share it with you because I believe deeply that everyone (and everything) deserves proper lighting.
You’ve heard me praise Proven Skincare time and time again for its convenience and efficacy, but did you know that you can also occasionally… pay less money for it? Since my followers are Proven devotees, the company offered me another discount code: MARYSPRING will get you their completely customized skincare system – the whole kit and caboodle! – for $99. That is a STEAL for some of the best skincare I’ve ever tried. If your current routine has countless steps and you honestly aren’t sure if any of them are working, Proven is well worth a try.
If you need an Easter basket option for kiddos that’s convenient, adorable, and different from the norm, definitely check out Super Smalls, who have a GREAT deal going on their customizable basket. It comes with extremely fun and sparkly finds for your little ones, and you can add in any other Super Smalls items you like. This is a great choice for anyone hoping to make Easter baskets focus on springtime imaginative play, instead of all the sweets.
Sarah Flint’s Natalie Flat is one of my all-time favorites. I own it in nearly every color available. But NOW, we can also wear the Natalie in a slingback! Look at this stunning shoe, will you please? I just received the Black Stitch Textile option, but I think we both know I won’t be stopping there, not with all this spring weather lying around…
FYI, new customers can use SARAHFLINTxMARYORTON for $50 off!
Because I needed another skincare product obsession, really. Laura Mercier’s Almond Coconut hand cream smells heavenly, and it comes in the ideal size for keeping in your bag. I threw it in my carry-on on the way to NYC last week and was amazed at how effective it was on my post-flight dryness. It’s also currently on sale at Macy’s, just saying.
I’ve been lusting over this (literal) Tent of Dreams for two years (yes, TWO YEARS) and finally purchased it for the girls as an Easter surprise. It’s definitely an investment for a children’s item, but it’s going to live in our sunroom, so I felt good about something that could be a permanent addition to the room that also added to the overall decor. I also got the coordinating cushion and bolsters for styling out the tent a bit and adding extra comfort. I strongly recommend looking through all of the beautiful fabrics the tent comes in here.
