Welcome back! Today’s post is all about my new favorite pajamas + I snuck in a little website update. Read the whole way through for all the juicy details!
The Amazon Pajamas
First off, we have to talk about pajama sets. Why are they so expensive?! Even a set of Target Pajamas will set you back at least $30, and don’t even get me started on a J. Crew or, god forbid, a luxury brand. I’ve seen pajama sets that cost hundreds of dollars. YOUR READ THAT RIGHT. HUNDREDS. I don’t know about you, but you couldn’t pay me to spend hundreds on a set of PJs. However, I still wanted a cute, silky matching set. Enter, these Amazon pajamas.
I recently did a huge Amazon haul for Valentine’s day outfits over on my Instagram, and these were part of the haul. I honestly didn’t expect to have anything good to say about them. I feel like silky pajamas look super cheap unless they are ultra-fancy, so my expectations were really at rock bottom. Y’all, I was wrong.
These pajamas are the softest, silkiest pajamas I’ve ever owned! They make me feel super fancy and luxurious. I ordered a size up, but I easily could have gone with my normal size. I paired them with my ugg slipper dupes, which makes for the perfect lounge-friendly sleepwear. Seriously, I feel like these are just as fancy as the Sleeper pajamas I’ve been eyeing, but they come in at a fraction of the price. Definitely check them out if you’ve been wanting a fancy-on-a-budget pajama set!
Site & Personal Updates
There are some incoming changes to Shock & Delight! I really enjoy writing blog posts, but I’ve been struggling with my previous Monday-Friday schedule. My current job involves a lot of time staring at my computer, reading, and writing, which sometimes leaves me feeling burnt out and not being able to contribute very much to a blog post.
While I love fun, quickie posts, I feel like there’s more value in taking the time to write out longer-form blog posts. My favorite posts of mine are always my longer, highly researched posts that really dive deep into a subject. I also feel like those let you get to know me better, too!
Additionally, there are some personal things I have in the works that need a little bit more of my time and attention. I’ve really struggled with burnout for basically the last two years due to the nature of my job and *gestures broadly*, so I feel like doing anything outside of my normal routine requires me to very consciously make space for whatever new thing I work on. I am excited to share what I am working towards soon, but for now, thank you for sticking around!
That being said, the combination of needing more time and wanting to create longer blog posts means that something has to give. For now, it’s going to be my posting schedule. I really believe in being consistent, so I’d like to stick to a 3x a week schedule, with blog posts going live on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The exact dates might change a bit over time, but I will try to let you know in advance as much as possible! And don’t worry, the shorter posts aren’t going away entirely, there will be at least one a week!
This post is going live on a Monday since I typically post Monday-Friday, so the next time you hear from me on here will be this Thursday. If you want more Shock & Delight content, be sure to check out my Instagram! I am having fun doing a mini reels challenge right now, so I’m trying to post a reel for every day in the month of February.
Thank you for sticking around while I figure things out, I can’t wait to keep sharing on here and getting to know you better, too! See ya Thursday!
