Hello! Recently, while at my sister’s house in San Diego, I was thinking that a sofa everyone loves is from Pottery Barn. I ordered the same one for my daughter, her friend, and my sister. Also spotted in San Diego was lots of red at the big Pottery Barn there. And I’m showing what I am wearing now in Palm Springs, CA.
It’s Five Fave Time with Cindy And Annie!
1. The Sofa Everyone Loves
As I said, the couch that everyone loves is a modern classic (transitional). It is the Jake Upholstered Sofa with a wooden base in Performance Everydaylinen Oatmeal.
We got it first for my daughter and it’s holding up well as their main couch. Then, my sister wanted it too, and finally, we ordered it for my daughter’s friend in a full sofa and a loveseat for their living room.
They have kids and pets, too.
It’s comfortable but with a firmer cushion fill. It comes in different sizes for large or small spaces.
If you need a new couch, you might want to purchase The Jake in a stain-resistant performance fabric. You will still need to wipe up spills and spot clean but so far it has good durability.
We like the bench seat cushion with two or three back cushions. We think the modern style is also timeless. You can accessorize it with throw pillows in the colors of your choice.

Here is a peek at my sister’s dining area. I bought her the Trade Joe’s tulips.

2. New Color At Pottery Barn – Red
I’m glad to see red coming back in accessories and linens.

3. My New Favorite Mascara
I hope you have had your coffee before you see this unretouched 66-year-old face. My point is to show you how well this Thrive Liquid Lash Extension Mascara works! My sister gave me a tube and I was hooked.
4. What To Read/Listen To:
I get a lot of my book recommendations from Elizabeth at Pinecones and Acorns like this latest one:
The Windsor Knot: A Novel (Her Majesty the Queen Investigates, 1) by S.J. Bennett
I listened to it on audiobook which was really fun as the person reading has a voice that sounds like the Queen.
“Windsor Castle, 2016. The morning after her ninetieth birthday celebrations, the Queen is shocked to discover that one of her guests has been found dead in his room.”
5. What To Wear On Vacation
40% Off Almost Everything At J. Crew. Use the code Spring to get 40% off on this wide-brimmed packable hat. I’ve been wearing it every day here in Palm Desert, CA. My beaded earrings are also 40% off. The dress I’m wearing as a cover-up is from Zara.
I’m so happy! Here my son, Tommy and I are at the hotel pool with my granddaughter, Louisa. Louisa likes a straw sun hat too!
I saw an ad for this maxi dress on Instagram. It was pretty inexpensive (less than $30) so I took a chance ordering it. It’s perfect for a warm evening out.
I ordered a size small as I didn’t want it to be too long. The comfortable platform sandals are here.
