The negative feels keep trying to creep their way in. The house is a wreck right now while we start a bunch of projects we have been putting off. It is the gross part of winter that comes after Christmas that turns everything gray and crappy and it feels like it is going to last forever. And I’m having a serious case of “Ugh. You again,” when I look in the mirror. I thought it might be a nice change of pace to turn down the sarcasm a smidge and just share some things that I’m enjoying or finding helpful or fun right now.
Sour Patch Kids
The last time I bought these was probably in middle school. I am usually a chocolate person or a all-the-chips person, but this pregnancy has me craving fruity sweet things. Skittles, too. So many Skittles. Also, Skittles, if you’re reading this, you need more purple. That’s my only complaint. Otherwise, I am totally satisfied. XOXO
Sonia Kashuk Tinted Brow Gel
In the mornings when I don’t have much time or energy or motivation to put makeup on, this stuff is your mom in high school (cheap and easy) (HEY-OOOOO!). I want to do something to my brows, but I don’t feel like filling them in and defining my arch and yada yada. I brush this gel on, and it helps to fill my brows in a bit and keeps everything in place, while still looking natural and not overdone with the rest of the low maintenance business going on with my face.
Getting Rid of Clutter
Specifically, I finally started going through my dresser drawers, which has been sorely needed for the longest time. A lot of the drawers were stuffed full or overflowing, and much of what was taking up valuable real estate was old or didn’t fit anymore. I got rid of my pre-pregnancy bras that haven’t fit me in ages. Tossed any old or mateless socks. And trashed the abnormally large amount of “It’s laundry day,” underwear I somehow acquired. I’m now left with cute things that fit, are in good shape, and make me feel good when I’m wearing them. It was super fast to tackle and I’m now embarrassed that I put it off for so long.
This Post from The Mom Edit
It inspired me to be a little more mindful while getting dressed today. I’m still comfortable, but I don’t feel slobby or frumpy, which can be a mood killer for me as the day goes on.
Bath & Body Works Champagne Toast Candle
I’m not usually a fan, but I was browsing while my sister shopped for a friend recently. I liked the look of this candle, and the scent is sweet and happy and not overpowering. I’ve been lighting it while I get ready in the mornings, or while I get unready at night, and it’s been a nice addition to my routine. It does nothing to fill the empty hole that champagne has left in my heart the past six months; but really, nothing can.
