Or what's the point?

A good friend gifted me this back in 2020, and we've been inseparable
ever since (the blanket I mean, LOL!).
This is perfect for settling the restless sleeper, like me. It also provides relief for sore leg, neck and back muscles. ( #dancelife ) I swear, my sleep is deeper and my dreams are sweeter when I cover with this. Thank me later.
Short, Knit Robe
Cozy enough and cool enough.
I just love this light, opaque robe as loungewear. It features 3/4 sleeves, a waist front tie, and side pockets. In my opinion, it's a great homebody buy! The quality is great too. I have this in three colours and they all survived a million washes thus far and still look like new!
Team kinky-curly! Stand up! I did the big chop and made the transition from my processed hair to my God-given, unruly coils in February, 2019. After trying many products to help tame my mane, I settled on this magic buttercream I found online, which is extremely hydrating and defines my curl patterns, which actually vary drastically depending on what section of my head we are looking at. I stand by this.
Plush Bedroom Slippers
Homebodies unite! We have a new uniform essential! These are so soft and comfy, perfect for weirdos like me who wear shoes around the house by religion. Don't mind that they're chunky. They're open-toe and breathable so feet stay cool, but cozy. Heaven on your feet. Clouds below your soles.
Track your mental journey and evolution with this neat, beautiful journal that prompts you to jot down a simple line a day over a 5-year period. It will turn out to be a great memento as you can look back on the five year period and compare your thoughts per date for the past half decade.
Hemp Head Wraps
I'm so into wrapping my hair into turban styles at the moment with these jumbo scarves. Why? Nobody can see the possible mess that lies underneath. These hemp ones are the perfect size and material. They are naturally crinkled (no ironing needed), super soft, don't fade, lightweight and jumbo. They literally say "Big Head Scarf" in the description. Ideal (LOL!).
No, you don't have to be expecting to invest in this one. I got my first one when I was pregnant with Zendi back in 2014 and believe me, it was tough to part with postpartum, after getting used to the sheer surrounding comfort of it. I recently ordered a new one, and I'm going to live my best single lady life in bed. Haha!
An affordable alternative to Spanx or Skims. Stay snatched underneath that bodycon dress! It's totally seamless, starts just below the bust, conveniently sucks in your midsection, and stops just above the knees. Provides tummy, back and thigh control and smooths. Doesn't roll up or down either.
