Happy Sunday! Actually, I’m not that happy that it’s Sunday….that just mean Monday is quickly approaching – BLAH! It ended up being a pretty uneventful weekend. Just your weekend basics of cleaning and picking up groceries….nothing to write home about, that’s for sure!
Hey everyone! It’s been awhile since I did a favorite things post, so I thought it was about time that I did one.
Number 3 on my list is this awesome little idea I seen on Pinterest. I’m a very visual person, so I figured this may be that extra boost of encouragement to stick with a diet, if I’m seeing the results in this way. I ran out to Michael’s today and picked up a couple of small Mason Jars, along with a couple of bags of decorative gems. They are clear and then they also had heart gems mixed in with them…so cute. So I’ll put in the clear gems for each pound and for every 5lb mark, I’ll put a heart gem into the jar…love this idea! Wish I would have thought about it myself or seen it sooner! Really affordable though…it cost less than $10 for the supplies! 🙂
Fourth item on my list today is the Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleaning System. I have to admit, I’ve had this little sucker on my wish list for some time now & I finally broke down and bought it yesterday while I was at Target, as it came with a full size exfoliating renewal cleaners as well as a travel size for only $29.99…I actually think I see this in there weekly ad this morning. I tried this little puppy out last night for the first time & it is awesome! Seriously, you wouldn’t believe how much crap is left on your face AFTER you’ve washed your face. Go ahead…go out and get this & go home and wash your face, then use this…all of the makeup you thought you had removed shows up on the brush…it’s crazy. You won’t believe how incredibly soft & smooth your face will feel after using the Pro-X. I’m so glad I finally broke down & bought it!
If you’re kind of clumsy like me & have a tendency to drop your phone sometimes or accidentally knock it off the table, than this is the iPhone case for you! I finally upgraded to the iPhone 4 in November & carried it around in nothing but a little zippered fabric pouch. I researched & tried to figure out the kind of case I wanted to protect my precious phone & heard several people at work comment that they loved there cases like this, so I found the color I liked and purchased the Otterbox Defender Case. It’s actually a hard plastic case, that has a hard plastic cover to protect the face & the touchscreen works just as if nothing was covering it at all! Then you put the rubber cover over the plastic case & BAM! You have one super protective case!
The last thing I have on my list of favorite things at the moment post is Boots No.7 Mineral Perfection Foundation with SPF15. I’ve tried several of the more known mineral foundations out there and this one is by far my favorite. I first came across it at Target, when they were handing out coupons when they first started carrying it. It’s a lot more affordable than most of your mineral makeup. I believe it’s only around $13.99 at Target. I love to use this in the summer when it’s horribly hot and normal foundation just feels so heavy and then makes you feel like your face is going to melt off. This gives you the perfect coverage, plus it has sun protection in it as well. Plus it comes with a great make-up brush everytime you buy a new box!
Well, that about wraps up my favorite things at the moment post, but I also thought it was about time I did a giveaway of some sort. So, that being said, I wanted to go ahead and do a small giveaway of a 12 pack variety of Keurig K-Cups.
Hello, my peeps! Can you believe another weekend has flown by once again?! They just go way too fast! What have you all been up to this week? Nothing to exciting here…just getting into the groove of working after the holidays. This week will actually be my first full work week since the holidays, but never fear…we get a 3 day weekend after those 5 days! Yay! The only bummer is that the next holiday we get off isn’t until the end of May. **insert sad face here**
This week I watched the dvd I got for Christmas, “Crazy, Stupid, Love”. It was a really good movie! It wasn’t as good as I hoped it was going to be, but I set pretty high expectations sometimes for movies and they just don’t meet them. Loved all the actors in the movie, so I just had to watch it. Man, Ryan Gosling alone is worth watching the movie! Hubba, Hubba! It’s the second feature from co-directors Glenn Ficarra & John Requa. There first directing debut was the zany, crazy, wacky, TRUE story, called, “I Love You Phillip Morris“. Now if you haven’t watched that movie…I’d have to say watch it. I found if very entertaining & very hysterical, especially the fact that it was based on true events. It’s so quirky, it’s good. I stumbled upon it on streaming Netflix one weekend when I was bored.
It’s kind of got that “Catch Me If You Can” movie feel to it. You’ll know what I mean after you watch it!
I did get a chance to watch the movie “The Help” over Christmas, which if you haven’t read the book…go out and get it now and read it for crying out loud! Awesome book! Once again, high expectations were set for the movie & they were met! Excellent, excellent movie! Probably one of the only movies that actually followed the book pretty perfectly! The same parts you crack up laughing at in the movie and the same things your were laughing out loud about when you were reading the book. So, I highly recommend watching this movie….but as I always say…read the book first!
In anticipation for “The Hunger Games” movie that is coming out this March….I went out and got “The Hunger Games”, “Catching Fire” & “Mockingjay” for my Nook with a giftcard I had gotten for Christmas. I’m determined to get through the trilogy of books before March, which shouldn’t be a problem. I started reading the first book the other night when I couldn’t get to sleep and got about 4 chapters read & then I had to put it down or I would have been up all night. I have yet to pick it back up this weekend, but hopefully I’ll get a chance by the end of the night. So far, it’s a pretty good book…can’t wait to get further in! I just happened to catch the trailer for the movie when I went and watched the last Twilight movie. The trailer looked like my type of movie and then when it said it was “The Hunger Games” I was surprised. I had heard of the books, but never read the back of the book to find out what they were about. I was bad…I judged a book by it’s cover….seriously though…the cover could have been better! As for the title of the book…it sounded like a movie that Harrison Ford would be in, like “The Patriot Games” & that just isn’t my type of book, but I was totally wrong on that one! Shame on me!
