INFLUENCED

I thought this could be a fun new “series” of sorts to introduce to the blog. Obviously my job is… this. But that doesn’t mean that I’m not also a consumer! I scroll through Instagram, watch Youtube videos, and read (a lot) of blogs so I am often influenced myself. I just love seeing what people are into.

Okay here are some of the things I’ve recently been influenced to purchase:

INFLUENCED

INFLUENCED BOW MULES

BOW MULES

Influenced by: @nineandsixteen

These bow mules have been my go-to “fun” pair of shoes this summer. My feet started getting sore pretty early in my pregnancy so I loved the option of a mule. Less containment = less chance of blisters.

 

INFLUENCED GLASS STRAWS

GLASS STRAWS

Influenced by: @sashaandchristy

I originally bought these for iced coffees and lattes at home, but lately I’ve been using them for smoothies which I simply can’t get enough of.

MICROBAN BATHROOM CLEANER

MICROBAN BATHROOM CLEANER

Influenced by: @kellyinthecity

Kelly and I love sharing what chores we have on our plate with each other… We’re weird and both find motivation from it. (If I tell her I went through a junk drawer, she goes through her junk drawer… if she says she cleaned their grout? I’m cleaning my grout too.) She most recently influenced me to ship this overnight with Amazon Prime– I had to have it.

 

THE DEFINED DISH

THE DEFINED DISH

Influenced by: @melissasmrekar

My friend Melissa has been raving about this cookbook. Had to give it a try and so far, so good. It’s filled with healthy and filling recipes. I think I’m just a sucker for cookbooks though… I love flipping through them.

 

INFLUENCED NEWTON CRIB MATTRESS

 

NEWTON CRIB MATTRESS

Influenced by: many people!

I kept seeing this crib mattress pop up everywhere. From Facebook ads to Youtube videos, and I went for it. We needed a crib anyway and the safety features of this one had me totally sold. And it’s washable, which feels like a solid bonus.

PAULA'S CHOICE SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT

PAULA’S CHOICE SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT

Influenced by: @simply_elsa

Elsa swore by this skin perfecting liquid exfoliant and it is every bit amazing as she says it is! I only use it a couple of times a week and have noticed a big difference. It works almost overnight too– my skin always feels so smooth and looks so clear and even the next day.

 

MAXWELL & GERALDINE SMOCKED DRESS

MAXWELL & GERALDINE SMOCKED DRESS

Influenced by: @mackenziehoran

After Mackenzie shared this brand, I quickly scooped a dress for myself! You know I’ve been all about everything smocked and I was excited to add a new silhouette into my closet.

 

 

DEWDROP RING

DEWDROP RING

Influenced by: @rachmartino

I haven’t actually purchased this yet… but I put it on my short list. And I think I might get it for myself for my birthday! I love the mix of pearl and diamond and how dainty it is.

Would love to know what your latest influenced purchases…

We have the Newton mattress in our baby’s crib and love it. It’s super easy to clean!

I’d be interested in the blogs you follow. I feel like I’m in a rut this way and would love some blogs to discover!

Is the Paula’s choice pregnancy safe? I was told to avoid salicylic acid while pregnant.

I recommend consulting your doctor to determine what is okay for use during pregnancy

You influenced me on those bow mules! I grabbed them the first time you posted them! I’m always looking for a dressy(ish) shoe I can actually walk in! (And afford!)
Would LOVE to see them do this in winter fabrics, like a black velvet or a holiday tartan!

I was totally influenced to buy the Nap Dress after seeing it on you and so many others this summer. I love how it seemingly looks great on every body size. Can’t wait to wear it on vacation!

Nap dresses, I own so many now because they’ve been everywhere and look good on so many different body types! Also every book I read – if someone has posted it on instagram, I have either borrowed it from the library or ran to the store to buy!
