Woah, what a week. Starting with the holiday on Monday, everything felt packed in and thrown off. Work is so busy (which is such a good thing!), and the shortened week threw off my days. Before I knew it, it was Friday. As in today. As in, I missed Wednesday’s post and am about to miss today’s post if I don’t pull my act together.
So hi! I’m here. How was your week? It’s October. Can we believe it? Well no actually I cannot believe it. The hockey season usually begins any day now which always helps me to define the time of year and seasons but it’s not beginning yet because the season just ended. As in, last season just ended. This just adds to my seasons of confusion for this year. I’m hopeful hockey begins in what, December now? Is that what they are saying? I can’t keep up.
Moving on to some favorites.
I found a penny on heads after my run the other morning.
Instead of pizza and a salad, I had a maple raisin multigrain bagel and a salad from Town Bagel. Usually, the maple raisin multigrain bagel is covered in seeds so I’m not sure what happened this time around. It was still good though! I love a salad with a bagel especially when I get a maple raisin multigrain bagel. It’s definitely one of my favorite types of bagels.
I’ve been living in the sweatshirt from my son’s Bar Mitzvah and it makes me so happy to know that even almost four years later (can you believe how time flies?) the logo artwork colors are still vibrant and the sweatshirt itself is still as nice as ever.
This is a flashback photo but I swear to you, the sweatshirt looks exactly the same. These sweatshirts (which were Bar Mitzvah party favors) were worth every penny. I’m sure most of the kids don’t still have theirs but I have mine and I’m so happy to wear it. The logo on the sleeve is the Bar Mitzvah date and the NHL logo was altered to be my son’s initials along with the Bar Mitzvah date.
Today’s Bar Mitzvah kids are not only struggling with canceled and/or postponed parties, and/or restructured parties that are now considered “micro mitzvahs” or even going virtual, they are also now giving out facemasks as favors. Who would have ever thought of facemasks as a need back when I planned the Bar Mitzvah? Never in a million years.
Speaking of facemasks, Stoney Clover just launched Hello Kitty facemasks. It’s a set of three face masks each in a different print (with beads!) and of course, the bow print is my favorite. It’s the same bow print as the pouches I ordered. So sweet and pretty.
In some beauty product news, I recently switch my daily sunscreen to Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30. This is a GREAT product. In the summer I always wear SPF 50 (Skinceuticals) but I finished the bottle and decided to try the Drunk Elephant sunscreen for this time of year. It comes in a huge tube and you only need a little bit. I wear it for running AND under my makeup. The ingredients are clean and it absorbs quickly. Even feels like a moisturizing skin care product.
Also, I finally gave in to the hype over Glossier Balm Dotcom and ordered myself a tube. And now I understand the cult following and why people stock up on several tubes of this lip balm (which is actually a universal skin salve too). It’s so good. You need it. Balm Dotcom will become your favorite must-have on at all times lip balm. Don’t forget how much I love Glossier Lash Slick – best everyday mascara. If you decide to order from Glossier, add a Colorslide liner. SO GOOD.
Big sales at J. Crew – They are running 30% off plus an extra 15% with code 5DAYS. Now is an excellent time to grab the oversized cashmere wrap. It’s been on my list for this fall/winter. I’m actually shocked that something cashmere is part of the sale.
Have a great weekend!
