I’ve been in hardcore consumption mode lately, and my creativity is currently lacking. So for tonight I’m going to talk about some of my current favorite things.
I have never liked Cheez-Its or Cheese Nips. They have always tasted sort or burnt or bitter to me. I also don’t have any sort of aversion to gluten. But I DO have an affinity for good deals, so when I saw a $1.50 off coupon for Van’s shelf stable products I figured I’d give them a try. I had a choice between the Say Cheese! crackers or fire roasted veggie crackers that looked a bit like Wheat Thins. Now I’m on my THIRD box of these crunchy, cheesy crackers and I have to keep them at work so I don’t eat them all right before bed. Yes, these gluten free crackers are binge-worthy!
I was a very bad girl when I spent Memorial Day Weekend in Ocean City, NJ. I did not apply sunscreen and my skin is paying for it. My already parched skin began peeling and flaking in the most unattractive manner! A quick Google search revealed that the lactic acid in Greek yogurt is a moisturizing and naturally exfoliating skin treatment, and I always have Greek yogurt! I used full fat yogurt. It feels so cool and refreshing on your skin and leaves your skin moist and soft without irritating. It’s really helped my skin smooth out and slough off the dead skin.
Riverdale is a Netflix Original Series based (loosely) on the characters from the Archie Comics, but it watches like a Miss Marple novel: centered around a murder mystery. Dark and sultry without gratuitous sex or violence, the show keeps you guessing on just who is responsible for Jason’s violent murder by throwing curveballs towards characters you thought you’d figured out. It’s basically a soap opera with a much bigger budget, vastly better acting, and you feel like you’re actually getting somewhere in the story. Also, there’s no bad language, so it’s appropriate for teens without being so squeaky clean that they’d lose interest. The best/worst part? Everyone is so dang attractive. Seriously, everyone.
I love me some shimmer. And gold is a neutral color, ladies! And it makes the green in my hazel eyes really pop. It’s flashy enough for evenings, but chill enough for most work environments. It will always match other gold accessories, and you can dab a little on your lipstick to change from matte to shimmer. 😉
Every woman deserves friends as wonderful as mine: friends who have your back when you’re struggling and lift you up instead of putting you down. Friends who don’t ever judge you because they know that while your journey may be different than theirs, it’s just a hard, and you have each other to help along the way. Strong women who are beautiful inside and out, and who are as authentic as you are. I love you, girls! ❤
