The Reale Radar No. 3

Happy election stress day! I don't know about ya'll, but I am a little basket case of anxiety this morning. Anyone toss and turn? Drink almost an entire bottle of red wine? Everyone? Great! An extraordinary time for us all. Democracy aside, I have some killer Reale Radar items for you this week. Let's get into it, shall we?

ONE /// J. Crew 50% Off Sale

I am a long time buyer of J. Crew anything, and this sale is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potentially ruining my credit score. Use the code DRESSYISH to save 50% on full-priced items. I added this trendy plaid blazer, these vintage corduroy pants, & this pearl headband (Headband obsession is intense) into my cart.


TWO /// Travel Destination Radar: Finland

In this episode of "just another night scrolling through travel YouTube videos," I found this video that had me say something I have uttered time and time again throughout the last 6 years; "I am doing that." Between the unique accommodations and absolutely stunning winter wonderland that is Finland, it is now on my coveted travel "want" list for 2021.


THREE /// Leslie Odom Jr. Christmas Singles

For the people in the back: If there is any year to listen to Christmas music early, THIS IS THE YEAR. For those of you who are not colossal Broadway nerds like myself, Leslie Odom Jr. is part of Hamilton's original cast, and his voice is a mix of Fergie and Jesus. Two years ago, I fell in love with Leslie Odom Jr.'s debut Christmas album (it came out in 2017, but I was living under a rock, apparently), and he recently released two new Christmas singles. Give it a listen if you like beautiful voices, and the full album drops November 6th!


FOUR /// Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream

Kind of a random favorite, but ya'll know I have been obsessed with skincare since age thirteen. I am a proud participant of the Biologique Recherché Cult, and the brand makes up most of my daily skincare routine (as well as IS Clinical). However, I recently picked up an old favorite of mine, the Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Cream, because I go through moisturizer like it's candy. Let me tell you, I used this in high school, and it still holds up very nicely for $24. All credit goes to my mom for providing me this favorite!


FIVE /// Half Baked Harvest Pumpkin Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Confession: I suck at baking. Precision and exact measurements have always been a struggle, but I took it upon myself to improve my skills during the quarantine. I plan to make these delicious cookies by Half Baked Harvest, one of my go to's for delicious recipes and baking options! I actually went out and bought pumpkin butter. It's real people.

SIX /// Instagram Follow of the Week: Nicole Issacs

Nicole Issacs is one of those people that I really see as having everything going for them: between being beautiful and traveling the world, I honestly don't know how it gets better for her. Envy aside, Nicole has incredible travel photography and attributes my earlier favorite of Finland to her Youtube videos. A worthy follow for anyone that loves travel content!
