Hi friend! Welcome to a brand new week! Our family got together to celebrate my mom’s birthday this weekend and I love our time together. I’ve mentioned before, but our family is so small, and I’m so thankful for our tight knit group.
I’m also really excited to be heading to NYC with Brian this week! I’m meeting him there since he’ll already be there on business and we’ll extend his trip through the weekend. We’ll be celebrating his birthday on Friday and I’m really pumped to get to explore the city this time of year!
Now onto today’s post! You might have been confused by the title, since it’s definitely a Monday and not Tuesday yet! I’ve been doing a weekly series on Stories and wanted to share it here too, in case you missed it.
It’s nothing extravagant, just little things that make life a bit sweeter. Hence the title! These are things I find useful in my day-to-day life, and you might too. I share these “goodies” on Stories every Tuesday, so you can catch them live there.
You can catch the next one live on my Stories tomorrow!
Here’s the latest!

It’s been making me so happy to start sprinkling some Fall decor around the house. These faux branches are so lush and full and come in a pack of 6, so you only need one set to make a statement. You can also bend the wires to position them how you want.
I put the textured pillows in Jordan’s playroom and they are gorgeous!
The plush velvet pumpkins are sold on Amazon, but are handmade by Michell’s small shop ‘Your Heart’s Content’. The colors are gorgeous in person and Jordan loves having the pink ones in her room. I bought a new runner rug for the upstairs hallway and these rug grippers keep your rugs in place without flipping up.

These magnetic cord keepers are genius! They coral all those phone charging cords and keep them all neat and tidy.

How cute are those booties and they’re from Target, under $30. I had to size down 1/2. Those are the gloves I wear when I do dishes so I don’t burn my hands and my skin doesn’t dry out. The color is so pretty and they are silky inside, so they slip right off of your hands.
I’ve been loving that roll up drying rack – you just place it right over your sink – no wet towels or drying mats to wash.
Don’t skip lash primer if you want full, voluminous lashes. This drugstore brand is good!

Oh man, if you’ve ever been laying in bed all comfy and ready to go to sleep and argued with your spouse about who was going to get up to turn on the fan or turn off the light, you need this! It’s a remote controlled outlet, so you plug your appliance into it, and use the remote to turn it on or off! Arguments solved!
After seeing mine, Brian keeps saying he needs the foldable clip hangers for his house. They are great for air drying little things like bras, masks, baby clothes, and microfiber cloths that aren’t supposed to go in the dryer.
I use my drink warmer all the time and this one is genius because it automatically turns on when you place your cup on it and turns off when you remove it!

These pack of 4 tanks are a Must Have! They have adjustable shoulder straps, comfortable stretchy material and look great alone or under a cardigan. I even wear mine to sleep sometimes. See them on here.
That handbag looks so chic and expensive- perfect luxe everyday bag for Fall! It comes with a removeable shoulder strap too.

I wear these apple watch bands nearly everyday (especially smitten with the pink color). And my organization loving heart is crazy for these bamboo food storage containers and cute Qtip and cotton ball jars.
This blanket is the best of both worlds- knit throw on one side and soft sherpa on the other. We love it!

I loved this book so much that after I read it, I immediately bought 4 copies for my girlfriends. The wooden links are a fun decor piece and look great on your coffee table or bookshelf. I’m wearing theslippers right now as I type this- they are so soft with memory foam, but have a sturdy rubber sole.

My desk pad has been a favorite for years! I love how it keeps everything neat and also acts as a mouse pad. I don’t know why it was so hard to find a cute Kleenex box, but I’m so happy with this woven one. The duster extends to 20 feet, so you can clean your moldings and ceiling fans without worrying about falling off of a ladder!
My hair stylist Shelby got me hooked on Paul Mitchell hairspray and that’s what I use daily. It keeps my bangs in place without too much stiffness.

I like these coasters so much that I’m considering buying more. They are a bigger size, so perfect for every drink, even a Yeti. The clear bags were perfect for vacation this year and the big one held a ton of snacks. I loved being able to see everything so I wasn’t having to dig to find what I needed.
My mom and I both still love our hairdryer brush. I sweat it gives the best blowouts and you don’t have to have special talents to use it. Just use a heat protectant first if you use the hottest setting.

I’m still using these glass meal prep containers. The top of them has a little opening in case you need to let your food steam. The lids lock airtight for maximum freshness.
In the summer, our mosquitos are out of control. You plug this bug zapper into the wall and then won’t get eaten alive.
The pajamas are so soft with lots of stretch- extremely comfortable.

We use these storage bins in our linen closet to hold extra bedsheets, blankets and pillow covers. They’re great for so many other uses though- everything from toys to clothes.
Such a soft throw blanket! After cozying up with mine, Brian bought the grey one for his living room.
If your lips tend to get dry in the winter, try this lip scrub. It gently flakes off any dry skin leaving your lips soft and smooth.
The lazy Susan is a great size for the pantry, but you could also use it under the kitchen or bathroom sink, or as a craft caddy like I do in my daughter’s playroom.

If you need a backless bra, I’ve used this one way more often than I thought I’d need to. It keeps my girls up and in place. It’s a little tricky to apply the first time though. You attach one side, get your boob positioned into the cup, then pull the other side into place. The cups themselves are tacky so they stay put, and the sides are sticky. But they are invisible under racerback and backless tops and gowns!
These vases come in a set of 3 and look great grouped together or spread out.
I’m so crazy for these lightweight slip on sneakers. They are light as air and have a lot of cushion- so cute with jeans, dresses and shorts!
I’m no gardener (I wish), but I do pull weeds and these gloves are so cute and protect your hands.
Now let’s go kick Monday’s booty!
