Kalissa Recommends…

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a “Kalissa Recommends” so I think it is time!


I love a good podcast and this one is great! I first discovered Jami Rice when she was discussing the Brooke Skylar Richardson case on a Facebook video I came across. I immediately jumped to her podcast and I’m obsessed with it. I have not dug deeper into the murder mystery side of the podcast world but its safe to say – I’m hooked! Check out my full blog post on how to get started listening to podcasts here: http://www.thepinkshoelaces.com/intro-to-podcasts/


I mentioned these already once in an earlier Kalissa’s Gift Giving Guide but I just ordered a second box and I can’t WAIT to use them tonight! I opened the box and it smells ah-maz-ing! I’ve been taking baths at least 3 times a week as part of my self care routine I’m implementing to cope with the roller coaster of emotions that is the COVID 19 crisis. I decided to invest in my bath time. HERE IS THE LINK: https://amzn.to/3a3r4q4

Downy Unstoppables

I’m terrible at moving my laundry along – hours sometimes days pass when the laundry is still in the washing machine. Whoops! This is a life saver. My sister opened a box of clothes from me and then called to ask what I do to make my clothes smell so good – here is my answer: https://amzn.to/2XCFYkN

Cherokee iFlex Scrubs

As I discussed on my blog post yesterday, I got a new job! (if you missed that, check this out: http://www.thepinkshoelaces.com/i-got-a-new-job/ That means, I have to order new scrubs! That’s a pretty easy choice – I’ve been wearing Cherokee iFlex scrubs for 3 years now! I can’t bring myself to order another pair – these are lint free and stretch in EVERY direction possible. They also come in TALL sizes for pants! I wear an XL top (it is pretty roomy) and L tall bottoms and I’m about a size 14-16 for reference sake! Get your pair! You won’t regret it!

Little Fires Everywhere

Top two favorite actresses: Reece Whitherspoon and Kerry Washington. Now imagine them in a show TOGETHER! Mind. Blown. Seriously, Little Fires Everywhere is seriously giving me a “that was so good” hangover. Do you ever do that? Binge on your FAVORITE show and just love it and then all of a sudden its over and nothing will ever compare? Yeah. That’s what you’ll get when you watch Little Fires Everywhere. Fortunately, Hulu puts out new episodes every Wednesday so I only have to wait till Wednesday to find out what happens next. I talked to my sister Kayla and she says the book is also good but definitely different than the TV show. I’ll link the book here: https://amzn.to/2ycyzh6
