Recs by Lex Vol. 1

Hi friends! I’m trying something new here and sharing a roundup of frequently asked questions, things I’ve been loving and more in my new series: recs by Lex! Hope this helps round up all the things I’ve been loving and you love it as much as me!

Decorating my office space

I am continuing to decorate my workspace and love seeing the transformation so far! My office chair is FINALLY back in stock and comes in 5 different colors! And BONUS it’s on sale! I have some more decor plans up my sleeve, and can’t wait to share with you soon!

PS: I had so many of you ask about the wallpaper I shared in my stories for our bathroom and kitchen! You can find them here!

More Home Decor

I can’t stress enough how much of a difference adding rugs made. If you saw in my latest post, I have been adding different colors and textures of rugs in different spaces! You can shop them here, here and here!

Things I am LOVING…

Bill and I have really been getting into cooking – and we LOVE it! I am finding easy recipes that are relatively healthy and yummy, and it’s something we can do together. I admit that with all of the cooking, I have been a total pan snob and my Our Place is totally worth the hype. We even took it with us on our trip to Wisconsin to cook because I love it so much! PS: Use my code LEXANDTHECITY10 for $10 off your purchase!

Still into cooking? I have had this same knife since college and I will never use anything else! It is the easiest cutting knife you will ever use – for EVERYTHING. We have both sizes. You will not regret this purchase!

Need a little recipe inspo? We have been loving this zucchini noodles with shrimp recipe and this gnocchi with Brussel sprouts (and mushrooms!) recipe.

My daily routine

I know I have talked about it quite a bit on my stories but I am still taking Equilibria’s CBD on the daily and am so happy with the results. I am overall more calm, focused and relaxed! Use my code lexandthecity for 15% off your first order (they have so many subscription deals that help you save money too! start there and save by adding my code on top of it!). Shop their products here (love the balance and brilliance box!)

One more thing! I am really getting into the groove with my workouts, and if you haven’t tried Studio Three yet, you must! They have a Lincoln Park, River North and soon a Fulton Market location! Message me on IG for your first free class on me!

TV Shows!

My close friends know it’s like pulling teeth to get me to watch TV. I know, weird right? But you know when I DO watch something and reocmmend it, it has to be good ;). We just watched Bridgerton and that was hot and steamy, Imposters (on Netflix) is REALLY good, we are watching Dead to Me (also on Netflix) and I am an all time fan of The 100 (also on Netflix). So many shows, so little time.

Galentine’s Day

Galentine’s Day looks different for all of us this year, but no matter if you are having a virtual Galentine’s with friends or having a small (and safe!) get together at home, I have you covered for some inspo! I have hosted THREE galentine’s days to celebrate the women in my life I adore. And am going to continue celebrating women, safely and with nothing but love! I hope this can provide some inspo to you! (Read my posts here, here and here!)

That’s all for now! Anything you have questions about leave me a comment below and I will make sure to get to it in my next Spill the Tea! Xo.
