Happy Friday, friends! Closing out week 9 of quarantine. It is so crazy to me that is seems like we have been doing this forever. But also how quickly the weeks are flying by. We are in the middle of may already!!!!
Huge shout out to all of those who have had to birthday during the time. Chris’s birthday was yesterday, and I just felt so bad that we were stuck at home in just “another day” of our new normal. I tried to make it special by making a delicious keto peanut butter pie, and one of his favorite meals for dinner. USPS sucked and told me his package was going to be delivered on the 12th, and now it isn’t coming til the 16th. So annoying. And its only coming from Atlanta. 2 hours away.
Zoe made him a card and decided to wear her “party” dress for the occasion. She also wanted to go outside and snap photos. I think we have a future fashion blogger on our hands.
It has been getting significantly hotter here in the last week. It was 82 with high humidity yesterday, and both Zoe and I decided to come in early from our morning play. Summer is that you? I cant complain, we really did have a good run the last 9 weeks.
Favorite Find: A few weeks ago, I had ordered mouthwash as part of my Shipt order. My Shipt shopper ended up being a dental hygienist and she jokingly texted me a picture of floss and said, “Don’t forget the floss.” And I said, oh yeah…grab me one! Thanks! And she got me her favorite, the Hello Charcoal. I had a few things from this brand recently, and I have to say, I LOVE this floss!!!! It reminds me of the old gritty Listerine one that I cant find anymore. It just gets everything and makes flossing more fun. I know it sounds silly, but try it! Might renew your want to floss. Also, the packaging is fun.
I also decided to upgrade the basket we have in our hearth room for all of Zoe’s toys. I needed something that would look nice in the space, and hold a lot! This basket is so awesome! We have plenty of room to hold more than what we currently keep in that room, and it is all neatly piled into this HUGE basket. You can tell just by the feel that it is made really nice.
I was watching a YouTube video a few weeks ago on skincare, and the person mentioned Curology. I went to the site and took the quiz and decided to order the product to try. You can pay just shipping and get your first bottle for free if you sign up, which I thought was pretty cool. What did I have to lose? I think I am two weeks down with using it daily? Time is all relative these days. Anyways, I haven’t had any adverse effects from it so far. It is a pretty cool concept. You tell your concerns, answer some questions about your skin, and send close up photos. A dermatologist looks over everything and sends you your prescription. They check in with you after some time to see how it is working, and will adjust dosage accordingly. You can do a monthly or every two month subscription. Anyone else use this service? So far I think I like it. I will check in again after some more time has gone by to let you know if I am seeing a difference.
A side note, I had started taking Biotin the week before, and that caused my face to break out. Why does my body hate Biotin??? I need it for my hair!!! Does anyone else have that issue? I have VitaFive send me a package of Biotin and Elderberry gummies to try. I really love their packaging, as they are trying to reduce plastic waste and I wish more companies would move towards this. The vitamins tasted great, and I love the elderberry ones. I will definitely try other products from them. Every “beauty” vitamin I have tried has broken me out, so I know it is me, not them. They have some Melatonin ones if sleep is your thing. I might try their overall health one next.
