🎵🎵🎵…These are a few of my favorite things. 🎵🎵🎵
So this is now the sixth attempt at a post.
My writer’s block is in full swing – perhaps because my creative mind is across the world in India, dancing in a hot pink sari with elephants at the wedding-of-the-century I’m supposed to be attending right now.
I’m not bitter.
So, instead of beating my head against a wall trying to come up with a super deep, motivational message, like I’ve been trying to do for the last 4 hours, I’m going to instead do a fun post. One that I love reading on other people’s blogs/podcasts.
And this is going to be entitled: Things I’m Loving.
None of these things are sponsored. Basically, it’s going to be as though you and I were just sitting over a cup of piping hot camomile tea — or shots of tequila — and chatting about everything we’ve been obsessed with in the last couple months.
This is Us
If you haven’t heard of this TV show, I invite you to check it out. Literally everyone in my life has been telling me I Need-with-a-capital-“N” to watch this show.
And after dodging it on my Hulu queue for the last several months, I finally bit the bullet, and boy, am I glad I did.
I’m only three episodes in, but even still, I found myself last night, with tears streaming down my cheeks, feeling. It is so good. Give it a watch.
So because of this video, my skin has been blasted, literally all over the internet. And with it has come with a slew of inquiries about – not just if I’m a battered woman…
but also what my skincare routine is. So, I figure I’ll just lay it all out there.
My Number One skincare steadfast rule is sun protection. There is no better anti-aging/anti-wrinkle secret than protecting your skin from the sun. I don’t leave the house without sunscreen. Even on cloudy days. And I always wear a hat – this one is my favorite because it has a high UPF rating.
That’s it. That’s the “secret.” This sunscreen is great for everyday, and this sunscreen is the holy-grail, heavy-hitter for when you really need it. I wore it skiing — no “Goggle Tan” for this girl 🙂
And my teeth whitener is the Glo system – I have really sensitive teeth, and can’t use Crest White Strips because they hurt, so I love Glo because it uses light to whiten them. Buy the system once, then the refills are comparable in price with White Strips. Worth every penny.
OK, so you may recall that I went on a date over Christmas with a guy who was a SnapChat fanatic. Well, since my introduction to this millennial-friendly social media platform, I have honestly fallen in love. –Not with that guy, but with Snapchat 🙂 haha
So if you think you’re “too old” for it, or “not cool enough” for it, like I thought – consider this your personal invitation.
And also – Patreon just released its own “SnapChat” called “Lens” – and so I’ll be posting little video stories on there, if you want to join 🙂
You didn’t think you were going to get through this post without a little Bachelor action, did you??
I know. I am a sucker for all things Bachelor. And this podcast is hosted by IMHO the best Bachelor in history: Ben Higgins. They recap the show every week, have on interesting guests, and honestly, have some pretty cute banter. I watch The Bachelor on Monday, listen to their pod on Tuesday, dream about dating Ben on Wednesday…It’s a great little main-stay in my oh-so-exciting life.
For me, it’s the little things in life. Like these slippers. They are made out of a down comforter. It feels like wrapping your feet up in clouds. Every minute I’m in my apartment, I am wearing these slippers. I may not be setting any fashion trends here. But this is joy in the form of footwear.
Now, I’m not talking about Le Croix. Although, I do love me some hipster water. Especially the melon-grapefruit flavor. No, I’m talking about some good, old-fashioned lemon and lime water. I try to drink two liters of water a day, and the only way I can do it is by squeezing a lemon and lime with a little bit of stevia in it. I make an infused pitcher before I go to bed every night, and in the morning: an h2O treat awaits me.
I look forward to it every day 🙂
Linen Scented Plug-In Freshener
Again – it’s the little things. In an effort here recently to show myself a little more self love, I have decided that I want my apartment to smell fabulous. Not that it smelled dingy or musty before. Heavens no. I just decided that I want it to smell like fresh linen. All the time. So I picked up a Febreeze Plug In Air Freshener, and I literally smile every time I walk into my apartment now, because it smells like a dream.
OK – that’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by tonight – I’ll be back with regular programming as usual on Monday!
