Back To School Means Back To You

This is a partnered post with Wayfair.

Back to school time this year marks the first time I’ll be on my own in almost six years. Both boys will be in school three days a week, which gives me three days a week to remember what it was like to be alone, without cute little miniature company all the time.

I’ll miss them, but I’m really curious what time alone feels like again.

We recently went on a slew of shopping sprees for all their back to school supplies, fall clothes, school shoes and extracurricular activities gear, and in the midst of it all I couldn’t help but notice some things I’d love to have as well. A new espresso maker? Some new Le Creuset cast iron cookware? Fluffy new bathroom towels and high thread count bed sheets? It’s been so long since I splurged on myself that I never even notice these things in stores anymore, but now…

I want to shop for me!

So I recently perused Wayfair’s shopping site to see what I’d love to have now that I’ll have some me time again, and I fell in love with so much, for the home, for my kitchen, for my soon to be enjoyed coffee breaks anytime I want (well, during three days a week anyway)… and I love these:

back to me picks

1. Tiffany Mid-Back Task Chair with Tufted Back by Boss Office Products to replace my current office chair, which is on its last legs. I work late into the night writing on my computer and need a comfy (and in this case, super-cute) office chair.
2. Bronze Outdoor Firebowl with Lattice by Uniflame– perfect to sit by outside for a bit during the last of the summer evenings, and crisp early autumn nights, while enjoying my coffee
3. 15 Bar Pump Driven Espresso Maker by DeLonghi I miss just sitting in silence, enjoying a good cup of espresso.
4. 1000 TC European White Goose Down Comforter by Blue Ridge Home Fashion for comfy, cozy sleeping at night…about time!

What do you think of my picks? What would you buy from Wayfair to get Back To You?
