Happy Monday! Every so often I run across items that are those things so awesome you feel like you’re an ambassador for. As a blogger, they don’t really go anywhere specific here in order for me to share… yet I really want to.  I know I love when friends share with me some amazing, most covetable buys so consider this occasional new series starting today one friend to another trying to hook it up with her must haves. I try to post the best deals on Facebook and now, here are five products that wind up in nearly every convo with my friends. To start it off, #1 is so freaking good….

barefoot dreams cardigan

nordstrom barefoot dreams cardigan: omg, this is the entire reason for this post. I dream about this during the day, and it’s the first thing I reach for when I get home. {sadly, not exaggerating}. You could wear it out — it’s so cute — but it’s been about 80 degrees here. It’s the softest material ever, it feels like you’re wrapping yourself around the coziest blanket you can imagine. Check out the reviews- nearly 650 five stars. I considered it a splurge but it’s absolutely one of the best purchases ever.

converse ‘shoreline’ sneakers: I finally went for these after thinking about them for a few seasons, and I’ve already worn them every weekend. This version is a little more feminine, with the knotted laces, and elastic at the heel. Wear with shorts, with denim, with striped dresses, they’re awesome, and definitely a great price point. I hear you can scotch guard them, or keep them fresh with a monthly bleaching.

threshold by target mirrored frames

threhold mirrored frames: I bought 3 of these to display our family photos; they look so nice, way more luxe than the price point would indicate and I love, love, love the thick matting.

cards against humanitycards against humanity (additional cards): this game is hilarious, offensive and all around amazing. Bought these immediately after playing at a fab friend’s house, and now dying to throw a card game party. Further proof that staying in can be so, so much better than going out!

duvet insert

duvet insert: if only you knew how ghetto my bedding situation was pre one week ago. I felt like I was sleeping solely with a duvet cover, my insert somehow dissipated! It was clumpy by my feet and thin and awful. Anyway, I ordered this two weeks ago on Amazon and it’s amazing. Incredible what $50 can do for a night’s sleep! Are you a duvet or comforter person? If you’re a duvet person and have been neglecting yours, highly recommend this one.

old navy tank

honorable mention: old navy hooded tank (in plus size, maternity): currently sold out in xs-xl, this tank is exactly what I wanted at a fraction of the price of ‘designer workout gear’. On crazy weekend days, I’ll workout, swap out my gross sweaty shirt for this cozy tank…. it’s breathable, love the heather grey, has the perfect drapy silhouette and sporty vibe. It’s perfect.
