I can’t believe the first month of the year has come and gone! January was full of friends, executing a few projects at work that I am proud of and getting back on track to a healthier lifestyle. January also had its sour moments as well, but as I heard at the Philadelphia Women’s March, “We are going to fill the world with peace, love and joy”. And that we shall! Now onward to my January favorites.
Let me give a shout out to Weight Watchers because damn they invested a lot of money into their mobile app. Its way, way, WAY better than it ever was before. Plus they have this kick ass feature called Connect which is a live feed where the Weight Watchers community can post updates. Dare, I say that Weight Watchers is FUN?! I think it is. I love Connect because I can celebrate my victories, ask for advice and follow specific feeds to chat with other members all within the app. If I ever meet the creator of this feature they will get the biggest hug from me. (An actual conversation I had on Connect!)
In the month of January I tried out the Peter Thomas Roth Facial on the Go Kit. Its comes with the Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, FirmX Peeling Gel, Cucumber Gel Mask, and the Cucumber De-Tox Bouncy Hydrating Gel. My first thought when I opened this was “Damn, that sales associate at Sephora was right. If you want to try out a new brand, always go with a kit.” If you buy a kit, you can try a variety of the brand’s projects that are meant to target part of your routine OR any area of the skin you are looking to improve. I was most intrigued by the Cucumber Gel Mask and Cucumber De-Tox Hydrating Gel, but the whole kit has impressed me. The Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel foams as you wash your face which really made me feel that this cleansing gel was doing work on my skin. Plus it smells like spring and citrus, which is always fine by me. Just using this in the morning or at night made my skin feel so soft. I’ve never had that experience with a cleanser before. I am also new to peels, so when I first applied the FirmX Peeling Gel, I had this wtf moment where I was applying it and I thought “Is this supposed to happen?!”. I guess a peel actually shows you when your dead skin cells are being removed versus any type of scrub where you just assume it happens. Again, my skin is super soft. I think this kit is a big win if you are looking for something new.
I am sure many of you have heard of the website Minted. Its a great stationary website that has a full wedding collection and this is where I opted to get my save the dates from. After I placed all of my save the dates in the mail, I thought “ah yes, another thing I can check off my to do list with The Knot.”
A few days later my phone blew up with texts from friends and family saying that we picked out the most beautiful save the dates. Other words to describe them were “beautiful, regal, cool, unique and I am going to frame this”. Damn, ya’ll – THANKS! So for my fellow brides or friends that know the question is going to be popped soon, I highly recommend this as a stationary vendor.
Riverdale on the CW, please be everything you have promised to be and more. At the age of 28, I just realized that I have watched more shows on the WB/CW over the span of my life versus any other channel. Buffy, 7th Heaven, Everwood, Summerland (AKA the first show Zac Efron was ever on), Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, The Carrie Diaries, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Jane The Virgin, Supergirl, The Flash and now Riverdale. The show is from the creators of Gossip Girl and TVD so I hope this show delivers.
