I thought this would be an interesting rubric for sharing some of my absolute favorite purchases over the past few years with you: which products do I urgently text my sisters about? Amidst pictures of Josh Hartnett (our curious sisterly obsession), stirring and provocative articles, inside jokes, and check-ins, you will nearly always find me evangelizing on account of some product or other.
I am certain I have mentioned all of these across the blog at some point, but here they are, in shortlist form:
THE BEST BRA (WORTH INVESTMENT)
INEXPENSIVE ALTERNATIVE TO HANKY PANKIES (MY SISTERS AND I OTHERWISE RELY ON THE PAIRS MY MOM STUFFS IN OUR STOCKINGS EACH YEAR — HA!)
HARNEY AND SONS SOBA TEA (WELL, MY SISTER RECOMMENDED THIS TO ME FIRST AND I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT NOW)
KINDLE PAPERWHITE (CHANGED MY LIFE)
ARTIS ELITE MIRROR OVAL BRUSH (HOLY COW, THIS IS AMAZING — I THINK I’VE BEEN APPLYING TINTED MOISTURIZER WRONG MY WHOLE LIFE)
DAVEK MINI UMBRELLA (SO LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT, YET SO STURDY)
LONG IPHONE CHARGING CABLE (I WAITED WAY TOO LONG TO BUY ONE OF THESE — I LOVE THAT I CAN ROLL AROUND IN BED WITH MY PHONE CHARGING WHEN USING IT)
SPEAKING OF CHARGING – THIS CUBE POWER STRIP, WHICH SITS ON MY BEDSIDE TABLE AND IS SUCH A DELIGHT FOR EASILY UNPLUGGING/PLUGGING THINGS
THE ABSOLUTE BEST MASK FOR GLOWING SKIN (LEAVE ON OVERNIGHT)
BABY BJORN MINI FOR ITTY BITTIES
HHH NAP DRESS (THESE ARE SO COMFORTABLE – I WAS WORRIED THE SMOCKING/CINCHING WOULD BE ITCHY BUT IT IS SO, SO SOFT AND THE FABRICS JUST GORGEOUS)
J. CREW BLACK ELSIE PUMPS (<<ON SALE HERE) — THE PERFECT HEIGHT, THE PERFECT POINTED TOE, IN TIMELESS BLACK SUEDE YES YES YES
I’m sure I’ll think of others…
What else have you urgently texted your sisters (or girlfriends) about?!
P.S. On the topic of sisterhood: this series of 40 portraits of sisters taken together every year for 40 years was moving and beautiful and I’m totally in love with stylish sisters Shelcy and Christy.
P.P.P.S. On siblinghood.
