Tuesday Mood - I'm Back, Y'all.

Hi guys, I'm back. I have had some really sad life stuff going on and needed to check out for a while. (Plus, I was running out of stuff to post about, so the break was definitely needed.) Anyway, as I usually do when things are bad, I buy stuff to fill my sad hole and then I'm like, why didn't that work? I mean, sometimes it works, so worth a shot. Here's what i've bought lately: 

I have pretty much only been carrying my Lo & Sons Pearl bag since I bought it back in the spring and I finally caved and got a cute snake charm as well because, hello, 40% off everything + extra 10% off with code SUMMERTIME. Now is the time for snake charm keychains! It arrived last week and it's REALLY CUTE. I dig it. I am also eyeing the grey saffiano leather Pearl because it's definitely something I DO NOT NEED. AT ALL. 


I also bought this beautiful labradorite pendant necklace from Twist Style, my friend Maryellen's jewelry business. Like all her work, it's beautiful and lightweight and basically perfect. 



In an attempt to avoid underwire whenever possible I bought this Yin bra from Athleta. It's on sale (in the mint color) and available for D/DD, so I decided to give it a shot. I like it! The band is good and sturdy and the back is pretty minimal, but it still has reasonably good support for yoga or non-bouncy workouts. Plus, it's cute, right?


Marianne bought a really good dress from Gap Factory, because of course she did. She got the tie-dye version above but it also comes in three solid colors. It's simple, pretty, and flows really nicely. A good around-the-house summer dress! 


Now, for some Mask Talk. Those Target masks I posted about recently are good until they aren't, right? (They're $2 each for a reason.) I decided to try some nicer masks and ordered this set from Athleta. They haven't arrived yet but I'll definitely report back. Marianne also ordered a really pretty indigo dyed mask she loves from Bramble Workshop on Etsy. Not only is it pretty, it fits her extremely well and, in her words, "It's the only mask I can stand." Heh. 

That's all I've got for today! Hope y'all are having a good week and if there's a mask you truly love, please leave a comment and tell us about it.

  1. Everyone in my office LOVES Henry masks. Unfortunately, they don’t work for me in the same way most glasses/sunglasses don’t - damned high cheekbones/cheek apples. Still on the hunt. I hope your sad situation resolves as soon as possible so that you can be happy again. ❤️

    1. Thank you! And yeah, I'm not sure the Henry masks would work for me either - I have a small face and cheek apples and they look BIG.

  5. I bought some masks from Johnny Was that I really like. The prints are pretty and the masks fit well. They have a pocket for a filter, too. I’m on the hunt for some masks with the bendable nose pieces.

    Sending love to you!!

  6. Those Athleta masks are good. Neutral colors, adjustable at ears, and wire at the nose to help hold in place. I bought them the first time they offered them, and then went back for another pack so I can rotate/wash.

  9. I have those Athleta masks and I love them! They are really comfy and good for every day. The only problem I have with them is that once I handwashed them, the pleats didn't stay flat. It's fine when you wear them, it's just weird in your mask basket or whatever. I bought one of those $$$ masks from Graf Lantz with filters for intense needs, but I haven't received it yet.

    {{Hugs}} to you. I know you've been going through some tough stuff lately. <3<3

  10. I also love the Athleta masks - bonus is they match all of my Athleta pants (and the material is nice and breathable). The pleats and nose wire really make the fit great and not bunchy. My 15yo son also loves these, so now I'm on the waitlist for another set!
