Cue everything pink, sparkly...and, as contradictory as it seems, the winter blahs.
The holidays are over, and summer seems so far out of sight. The prospect of two-hour delays is dwindling for those of us in the teaching world, and it seems like we're in the eternal days of slush, cold, and boredom.
Okay, enough dreariness for one post! If the season has you down, read on to find some of my newest obsessions. They've managed to perk me up...maybe they can help you boost your mood as well :)
1. Born This Way Foundation by Too Faced
I've tried dozens of foundations, always looking for the perfect mix of coverage and glow. I've tried foundations that have turned orange or looked cakey. I've tried brands that make me look oily and that don't cover.
This one is sheer perfection. It's medium coverage, so it does give you the evening out benefits you need in a foundation, but it doesn't make you look like you have on a Halloween mask. It also seems to help control oil, as I have somewhat oily skin and haven't had any issues. It's a little pricey at $39, but I feel that it is definitely worth it!
2. Jane the Virgin
I found myself in a "show hole" a few weeks back, so I decided to give this show a try.
Laugh out loud funny! That's all I can really say. I love that Jane is into writing and English. I love her soap opera dad Rogellio. Most of all, I love the narration that makes this drama-filled, ridiculous show amazing to watch.
My mom and I tried Zumba for the first time a few weeks ago and were surprised that we LOVED it.
Let me give you some backstory. Three years ago, I begged my mom to try a Zumba class with me. We went to a small Zumba class in a small building, nervous but ready to shake our Latin hips.
The instructor was...well...a little crazy. My mom and I found ourselves stumbling all over our own feet while the instructor consistently came and danced in front of us in some questionably scandalous moves. Yeah, it was awkward, and we were left wanting to crawl to the doorway and leave Zumba in our past forever.
This week, though, we decided to brave up and give Zumba another try. We went to a new location with a new teacher...and guess what? We LOVED it. It's such a good workout and so much fun. Thankfully, we love our new instructor, and there haven't been any scandalous moves happening. It is an amazing workout that doesn't feel like a workout. It just feels like pure fun. And this is coming from a self-proclaimed workout hater.
4. LuLaroe Leggings
I just got my first pair this week...and yes, they are worth the money!! They are so soft and comfortable. Do yourself a favor and buy one...or ten!
Check out the pattern...so fun! And Stanley also thought they were super soft!
