This Weeks 5 Favorites
When I first got this I was skeptical. The directions are to spray on your face wait 3 seconds rub in and then wash off with warm water. It’s supposed to remove dead skin and dirt and leave your face feeling smooth and fresh. I have become obsessed with it. I’ve been using 3-4 times a week and I have seen a major difference especially putting on my makeup. Before my dry skin would make my makeup patchy and uneven now it’s so smooth. You can see results immediately, your skin is softer, smoother, and brighter too.
I thought this was over hyped when I saw it on Nordstrom’s website. $24 for some lip balm. That is too rich for my blood. Then I got a sample set on Amazon and fell in love. It smells amazing and is nourishing with just the right amount of color. My favorite is the Poppy because it’s a little more pigmented than the Rose. I use the advanced lip therapy one for under lipsticks and it keeps my lips hydrated and from looking cracked or peeling.
Even if you don’t love the books or the movies I highly suggest you check out the soundtrack. The cover of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” by Corinne Bailey Rae is worth it alone. One Woman Man by John Legend is another of my favorites. No matter your feelings about the franchise I think we can all agree the songs and covers are usually pretty great.
This has completely transformed my hair. A few drops on my damp hair after I shower and it helps with tangles, split ends, fly aways, and makes it so so so soft. I love the caramel and vanilla scent and it lasts for a better part of the day. A little drop is all you need. Rub it together on your hands and rub through to the ends (avoiding your roots so you don’t end up looking like your hair is dirty). I used it before I blow dried it and I swear my hair dried faster and was smoother than ever before.
5. The Kindness Diaries Book and series on Netflix:
As I talked about in my previous post, I’m really working on being kinder and encouraging kindness. This is right on point with that goal. I just ordered the book after watching the series. I usually like to read the book first but just happened to stumble upon the series on Netflix when I was looking for something kid friendly.
The book and series are about Leon, a former businessman, who realized he was not happy with the life he was leading. Even with all the things society considers successful. So he decides to travel across the world with no money, relying only on the kindness of strangers. I’ll admit I ugly cried the first 3 episodes because the people who have nothing are always the first to offer to help him. A homeless man with nothing but the shirt on his back and a doorway offered him food, his bed, and even extra clothing. It really has helped restore some of my faith in humanity.
