Essentials for Staying at Home…

Share To:

First of all, I hope you all are adjusting well to the current CRAZY status of the world. You may have missed my blog post on Friday (don’t worry, I don’t think anyone read it either, according to Google Analytics! HA!), but I talked about my own feelings and how I plan to move forward during this crisis. Read it here…

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared any roundups here on the blog, but a nice benefit of being stuck at home is that I have time to BLOG! Hooray! I hope to find time to share lots of fun tips, ideas and products and hopefully reconnect with you all here on this platform that I’ve so sadly neglected lately! Today I’m sharing a few things that I think make staying home more comfortable and enjoyable. These items are either things I am currently using on a daily basis, or hope to use soon!

Here are more details about each item I am including…

Pottery Barn Linen Bedding

Ahhhh good bedding is absolutely life-changing. I hope you’ll be spending a little more time in bed catching up on sleep and other activities (wink! wink!) now that your stuck at home. This bedding is everything. Shop here

Must have coffee. Must have more coffee. Good coffee is better in a good mug. This one is both big and pretty, because face it, you’re going to need a lot of caffeine to get through this. Get a few of these mugs here

Speaking of coffee, we just bought this hybrid Keurig coffee maker for our cabin and it is awesome! Depending how many people are staying with us, we typically make a full pot in the morning, but then when someone just need an afternoon pick me up, we can just pop in a K-cup and carry on. Also, this solves the question for guests when they wonder what type of coffee machine we have.. both! Get it here

If you know me, you know that I LIVE in these. I mean, we live in Arizona so I use them DAILY. They are the most comfortable flip flops and you can slide them on to take out the trash, since that’s the farthest place you are going to go these days. Ha! I typically have 3-4 pairs on hand around the house. Get the best flip flops in the world here

Speaking of something else I LIVE in, these high waist leggings are my absolute favorite and they are on SALE for $22 right now. AND….I’m can’t believe I’m going to say this out loud, but I actually prefer these over my Lulus…. gasp! Check them out here and try for yourself

Okay, these I haven’t ordered these candles yet.. BUT based on the brand (Escapist) and the names of the candles (vacation destinations!), count me in! Now that you are working from home, you’re going to need to ESCAPE and if these smell like Paris, Hawaii and Santorini…. can’t we just take a sniff and transport ourselves there? Buy them here

There has never been a better time to put your running shoes on. Seriously. Time has slowed down. Even though I have worked from home for many, many years, now that I am home (and at the cabin) with my family, we have implemented mandatory exercise. I haven’t been to our gym in longer than I can remember, but I’m proud to say that I have worked out more times in the past week than in years! We’ve gone on long walks (5 miles!) and we’ve been doing these dance workouts with the kids and I’m obsessed. I really hope this means I’ll get back into a regular fitness routine, because I’m way overdue. Maybe I’ll even need a new pair of workout shoes soon? These are mine and my BFF says they still look brand new (Hmmm…. I wonder why?!)

So we can’t go get our hair done, which is quite unfortunate, but understandable. My appointment was supposed to be last week so my extensions are slipping out and my dark Greek roots are coming in strong. Luckily, my husband and kids haven’t notice, so I’ll wait it out until Tina says it’s okay. In the meantime, I’m finally going to use this treatment she had me buy because what else am I going to do with all this time on my hands? You should do it too. Buy it here

Not sure if I even have to explain this one, except I’m really glad that I have this huge coconut soap in every bathroom before this contagion started. While I buy more for the looks than anything else, now all of a sudden it’s massive size makes total sense. Wash your hands in style

This round-up was super fun to put together so I hope you enjoyed my picks for Essentials for Staying at Home! Click any photo below for more information and details! Happy shopping... and stay safe and healthy!
