Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! After traveling most of last week and weekend, it was nice to be home this week and back to my routine. Nothing too exciting happening over here – mostly just work and workouts. Michael and I have a low key weekend ahead with a few fun things sprinkled in!

Things to Note
My Rent the Runway Unlimited offer expires on Monday! I’ll have a new offer, but the current one is the BEST one they’ve ever given me to share with you. So if you’ve been looking to try out the service, now is a great time to give it a go! Use code RTRASHLEE for $200 off a 2 Month Trial ($100 off your first and second month) of RTR Unlimited. That’s more than a 60% discount!! (Ends up being $59/month). I love using RTR Unlimited! You can read all about my experience with the service here! The details: Pick 4 pieces from the Unlimited selection, rotate the 4 pieces whenever you choose, RTR covers the cost of shipping, returns, insurance, and dry cleaning.
Everlane Modern Loafers (almost) 50% OFF // Sadly, Everlane is retiring the first shoe it ever released. But the good news, they’re almost 50% off right now! And still in stock! I’ve had my pair of the Modern Loafers for almost 5 years! I purge my closet A LOT, so that’s saying something! They are the PERFECT loafer for work. The quality is amazing and they’re super chic. They run TTS and take about a week to break in (I kept mine at my office when breaking in and just wore them around during the day). Don’t miss your last chance to grab these beauties before they’re gone!
J.Crew Sale // J.Crew is currently having a 25% off sale – 25% off your entire purchase! My zebra/tiger striped swimsuit from The Bahamas and my rainbow dress are included in the sale! Both are SO cute and perfect for any warm weather trips you have coming up!
I currently have a few discount codes for some of my favorite services and products. I share these on Instagram Stories often (and try to save them in my highlights), but I figured I’d share them here too in case you missed them!
Winc Wine // I’ve been using Winc, a wine delivery service, for the last few months (although I’m taking a break for Dry January). I love that they essentially pick out wines for you, based on a fun quiz, and ship them straight to your door! I usually end up switching a bottle or two out for something I’ve been specifically wanting to try, which you can totally do too! You can use my link to get $22 off your first order, which equals out to $39 for 4 bottles of wine! Click here to place your order: winc.mivh.net/cobalt
Equilibria CBD // I dipped my toes into the world of CBD in 2019, and I finally found a CBD company that I really trust, and I ‘m excited to be partnering with them. Equilibria is a women owned CBD company based in Chicago. I’ve use the pain relief cream on my hips and calves and other sore muscles after workouts and also used it recently for the first time for period cramps (it really worked!). One of the things I love most about Equilibria is that when you make a purchase, you are put in touch with a dosage specialist who can help you figure out what CBD dosage is best for you and your needs! They have a handful of products like daily drops and gel caps so that you can choose what’s best for you. You can use code cobaltchronicles for 15% off your first order!
Daily Harvest// My go-to, easy to make, at-home smoothies! These are great and so convenient! I love that they help me to mix up my smoothie game. When I’m left to my own devices, I tend to make the same combination smoothie day after day. Use code COBALT for $25 off your first order!
Territory Foods // (Still) BREAKING NEWS! Territory now delivers in Houston! (I’m really working on getting all of my DC favorites to Houston … so far I’ve succeeded with Sweetgreen and now Territory!). The BEST already prepared, meal delivery service! Use my code – COBALT – for $50 off across your first two orders ($25 off each order). I love using Territory when I know I have a busy week ahead or when Michael is traveling. The meals are already prepared, delicious, and healthy too!
The US Women’s National Team (soccer) is in Houston this week for Olympic qualifying games – Michael and I are heading to their match tonight against Panama! I’m so excited to see all of my favorite ladies from the World Cup do their thing in person! And on Saturday we’re heading to a crawfish boil with friends. Otherwise, I’m looking forward to a low key weekend at home!
FAVORITE THINGS THIS WEEK
A few of my favorite things this week!
Everlane Leggings // Everlane released its first pair of leggings earlier this week. I have the Brandy Rose color, and I love them! I’m 5’4″ and have the ankle length – they hit right at my ankles, they’re essentially full-length on me. If you’re taller, check out Blair’s review of the full length leggings and see how they fit here! The leggings are available in several colors. For sizing reference, I have a size small.
Maelove Glow Maker Antioxidant Serum (Vitamin C Serum) // I’ve been using Maelove’s Glow Maker serum for a few weeks now, and I really like it. I use it as my morning serum – after cleansing, before moisturizer. The serum has Vitamins C & E, Ferulic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid. And another perk, its price point – at only $28, it’s a great alternative more pricier Vitamin C serums on the market. It’s also a clean beauty product!
Amazon Slide Sandals // I received these sandals this week from Amazon, and they’re so good! They are much cuter in person than they appear online (and in the customer review photos – not sure what’s going on there). A great pair of easy slides for only $25!
Have a great weekend!
