5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week: Chai Smoothies, spring cold remedies & more

“5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week” is a recurring series on The Blonde Chiffon. New edits are published every Friday, and the intent is to give readers a concise list of amazing thoughts/projects/trends to try over the weekend and into the next week. I hope that you are as inspired as I am by these finds! 



I saw this recipe rounded up on LaurenConrad.com this week, and I couldn’t resist adding it to this list too. It just looks so delicious, doesn’t it? 


This personalized necklace is one of the coolest things I’ve found on Etsy in a long time. You know how in love I am with my three fur babies if you’ve read this post, and this rose gold custom necklace is the perfect, fashionable way to show it! 

5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week (3/8/2017)

Ah, another edition of “5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week”. I’m so happy I started this series last month, because it’s been such fun for me to share these ideas with you guys! Richard’s birthday is this weekend, so I’m not sure how many of ’em I’ll be able to try, but the though of making these wholesome carrot muffins during my spring break next week is totally giving me life right now. 

And before we jump right into the rest of your tentative weekend to-do list, I want to note: if you enjoy these posts, you should definitely sign up for my “Weekly Dose of Inspiration” newsletter. It goes hand in hand with “5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week”, but in the newsletter I share even more personalized, exclusive content like weekly reading suggestions, killer playlists, dope quotes, style steals & even more (yes, it’s possible to pack even more value into a weekly newsletter, I swear!).

I was super surprised last Friday at the positive reaction to my first “5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week” post. I always click on these types of articles on other blogs, but I had no idea how much others would enjoy my own finds! 

For some reason, this week’s content was particularly easy to stumble upon, and it’s safe to say that I’m going to be trying all of the above in the very near future (aka Saturday & Sunday).

Similar to my Motivational Monday posts, rounding up some of my favorite content on the web quickly evolved into one of my very first series I started writing once I hit “publish” on TBC in 2014. Since then, I’ve gravitated more towards creating, rather than curating. That’s something that I’m proud of, because it’s honestly much harder (and a much longer road to success) than just constantly rounding up other people’s content. We’ve all seen those posts on Pinterest that have a bazillion repins, but all of the “150 Hacks/Recipes/etc.” in the article are just links to other blogs. It’s fun reading them once in awhile, but I’m a total believer in the need to create organic content if you want to develop a sustainable online community. Ya with me?
