Everyone ready for the holiday weekend?! We are! This week we grabbed some great new products from Target, Michelle is FINALLY going to stop talking about her gym shoes, and Hannah is finding excuses to hang out on her porch. See everything we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.
My gym shoe search is over: Nike Metcon 3, Size 8
Update on the gym shoes: Three weeks deep into trying gym shoes and I picked a pair! I’m sticking with the Nike Metcon 3s in a size 8. The 8.5 was a little too roomy in the toe area, and while the 8 seems a little snug, Morgen says this is a good thing for her, so I’m doing it. After trying out all of these: Nike Metcon Repper D, Nike Free TR 7, Asics Gel-Fit YUI and other sizes of the Metcon 3s, I’m excited to just be able to wear the shoes to the gym and stop thinking about it.
I’m obsessed with The Bachelorette, and The Bachelor, and Bachelor in Paradise and everything to do with anyone in the Bachelor Fam. This week while watching Bryan attack Rachel’s face I discovered that Bryan looks so much like Mr. Tumnus from Chronicles of Narnia! Check out this conclusive evidence:
Do you agree? Let me know in the comments.
Kristen Ess Hair Products
I picked up this Kristen Ess Signature Shampoo and Conditioner from Target this week and I AM LOVING IT! They smell soooo good and the packaging is so pretty. I also use the texturizing powder from her line and it works well to add some grit to a ponytail or braid. They are $10 each if you are looking for a new shampoo or conditioner, or just want something pretty to set out in the bathroom!
Pixi GelTint Lip Stain
I’ve always been a lip stain kind of girl. I’d much rather have a stain than a lipstick which makes me question if I really want to be eating or drinking anything. And with all the rosé we’re consuming this summer, I need to keep all my options open! I am loving this lip stain at the moment. I was looking for a more readily available alternative to the Glossier Generation G—technically a lipstick (but wears like a stain). This one by Pixi is easy to pick up at Target and gives the perfect berry stain color. PLUS Target lets you return pretty much anything so it’s risk-free to try for yourself!
& Other Stories
I just discovered this store and keep coming back to these adorable dresses. I want all of them. If you’re native to the Los Angeles area they have a store in the Americana. But then you also know all the mental energy it takes to go to the Americana… These dresses just might be worth it.
DIY Hanging Daybed Update
When I first put up my DIY Hanging Daybed, I had it hanging from rope. That didn’t turn out to be the best idea stability-wise, so we switched the ropes out for chains. I didn’t love the look, however, so I wrapped the chains in this sisal rope from Home Depot. Fifty feet only got me through about one and a half chains, so I’ll need to pick up some more, but I’m liking it!
I haven’t been reading nearly as much as I’d like to lately, but since I’ve been spending so much time on the aforementioned hanging daybed, I’ve been getting some more reading done. I recently started Into the Water by Paula Hawkins and I’m liking it so far! Has anyone else read it yet? I just started but so far it’s just creepy enough for me.
