Here we are again, at the cusp of the weekend and it’s even better since we were off just a few short days ago. Although I still keep forgetting what day it is, and I tried to watch True Blood like 4700 times Wednesday night because I was sure it was Sunday. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t.
So this week I thought I’d share a few new things I’ve acquired that are making my life a little happier place. Ready? Go. (Yes, I was a cheerleader for like 3 years. I know, it blows my mind too.)
1. BB Cream. Have you heard about this stuff?? Me neither until a week ago when I had my Ulta splurge. (I had a 20% off coupon, what was I supposed to do, NOT buy all the things?) Apparently it’s all the rage and I understand why. It goes on like a tinted moisturizer- super light, not at all greasy and an amazing amount of coverage for how airy it is! I’m not kidding when I tell you I am obsessed with it. I wear it both alone and with a little bare minerals powder over top for extra coverage, but either way, it’s hands-down my new favorite beauty product. I went with Smashbox Camera Ready, but there are tons of variations out there if you’d rather go with a lower-cost choice. (My skin is really sensitive so unfortunately it’s one of the places I usually can’t skimp.)
2. New Beer. Brandon and I had a little date night last week and decided to go the ultimate romantic route and opted for wings and beer. What can I say, we’re simple folk. Anyways, the place we went has like 30 craft beers on tap and we wanted to sample a few. I don’t know when it happened but I became a beer-girl again. I used to down Miller Lites like they were paying me for it, but then I turned to wine and didn’t think I’d ever look back. However, I have, and much more in the way of delicious IPA’s and hefeweizens. So much to my delight, they had the elusive Dogfish Head 120 min IPA on tap, so we started with that. Only…
Apparently they can only serve 5oz drafts at a time, since it’s like, 18% alcohol. Lame, but hey, at least the glass was cute. We also had a Pizza Boy Turkey Burglar (not my fave) and a Terrapin Phlux Capacitor (deeelish). It was a pretty sweet little date night.
3. The New Gym. So I made my triumphant return to the world of exercise last night, and let me tell you, it’s been a while. I attended a little class called Body Attack, and holy balls, I can hardly walk today. I loved it though, as it sufficiently kicked my arse and I’m very much looking forward to more sweaty sessions. As much as I loathe working out sometimes, I really do feel a gajillions times better when i do it, so do it I shall. (Remind me of this around 4pm today when it hurts so bad I can’t even sit down to pee, k?)
So that’s it, 3 things that I’m a fan of this week. Enjoy your weekend, loves.
