It’s Friday. Holler! Here are the things that caught my fancy this week.
1. Lent started on Wednesday. Every year, I strive to do something that will make me a better person and Christian, rather than give something up. This year, I’m zeroing in on my attitude of gratitude that I initiated the beginning of the year. However, I really enjoyed this article of 20 things to give up for Lent.
2. I was gifted some Mustela bath products and I am loving them. The multi sensory bubble bath is so clean smelling and makes really long lasting bubbles. Nora loves splashing them around in the tub. And the new hydra bebe lotion makes her skin incredibly soft. Plus it’s really fast absorbing. I highly recommend both for your little ones!
3. I’m a big fan of jokes and puns. The cheesier and nerdier, the better. Jason told me one this week that I’ve repeated to more than a few of my like minded friends - Why can’t you trust an atom? Because they make up everthing!
4. I’ve hesitated to tell you about my latest monthly subscription addiction because I feel like I’m always talking about them. But I DO love them and this one IS good. It’s a Julep Maven box (referral link, yes). I cancelled my birchbox because after 2.5 years of receiving it I felt like I’d gotten every sample they could possibly send me and had been disappointed at my last few boxes. Julep is $19.99/month but you get full sized products and you can select what you get each month and your first box is free (just pay shipping). It’s centered around nailpolish but there is a “Modern Beauty” box if you’re not interested in the polish. But I’ll warn you, the polish is good. real good. and the colors are fab. real fab. My last box included two fun nailpolishes and a lipgloss that I am obsessed with. Anyway, if you’re like me and love a monthly box of goodies showing up at your doorstep, I’d check out Julep.
Have a great weekend, lovers. Today will be the last day of my closet clean out sale. I’ve lowered the prices on most remaining items. Everything ships out next week.
