Crap, I said I’d do this, didn’t I?
Well, okay then. Let’s DO THIS THING. Lucky you, I have bought some stuff lately. Not, like, a lot of stuff. But some stuff. Here be that stuff.
I have been having a rough winter when it comes to the skin on my face. This is ironic because, contrary to what my skin may tell you, I’m NEUROTIC about moisturizing. I literally cover all of my body – head to toe – in serious moisturizer EVERY time I shower. EVERY TIME. Fastidious am I about moisturizer. And yet. So I’d been using some heavy duty Mary Kay stuff, but it wasn’t doing anything for me. Namely, my face was scaling over and flaking off. (You’re welcome.) I had used a sample of Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Moisturizer during the summer and liked it, so I thought Hey, why not? and ordered some. Y’all. Y’ALL. Love this stuff. It’s pricey, but a little goes a long way and as long as I’ve been using Philosophy products, I’ve rarely found one that wasn’t worth the money.
As religious as I am about my moisturizing, I am also that fanatical about cleaning products. That is to say that when I’ve found something that works, I rarely stray. But it rained for about two weeks straight here, and three dogs + a winter-thinned lawn = mud pit outside. You can only imagine my wood floors in the house. I grabbed Method’s Wood for Good Floor Cleaner on a whim, and used it with my Libman Freedom Mop and .. man. It was REALLY good. Cleaned, conditioned, smelled AMAZING. (Note: don’t use this IN your Freedom Mop. Just spray yourself and then use the mop to .. mop.)
The new year is quickly approaching, and I looked at the next few months (work, basketball, set-building, rehearsals, LIFE) and I panicked. I can’t keep up with all of this! I sobbed to no one because everyone was somewhere else, presumably the event I’d forgotten that started the downward spiral of self-pity. Luckily, I follow someone on Instagram who had just ordered an Erin Condren Life Planner. And I liked the colors. Seriously, I am that easy. I ordered one and .. I am in love. It’s been years since I’ve actually used a “day planner”, per se, but this is so much more. It has a zip pocket in the back, it has monthly and weekly views, and .. it’s pretty. Here’s mine:
And I love it so. I left it at work the other day and felt NAKED without it. Again, this one’s not cheap, and it takes awhile to get it (I think mine took three weeks to arrive), but man. I adore it.
THINGS I AM GOING TO HAVE TO BUY SOON:
A trip to the hair salon. I submit to you Evidence Article A:
Aside from the obvious 1) spare tire and 2) houndstooth overload I’m currently rocking in this picture, can we talk about my hair? I’m a freaking Beatle here, guys. And I’m SO SKEERED to visit anything with scissors after the last debacle. But man. I’m not looking hot here.
