Happy Friday! I’m linking up with Andrea, etc. today so go here to meet some other bloggers. Yesterday I talked about the evolution of my blog here if you missed it. Wednesday I did my weekly what I wore here, Tuesday I did Easter and random stuff here and of course, Monday was my weekend recap here.
Thanks for stopping by today! If you are new here, welcome and I hope you will come back!
My first favorite is this cute little lemon Ipsy bag. Ipsy is a monthly makeup/beauty subscription service for $10. You get a cute pouch with 5 items based on a questionnaire you filled out. Is it worth it? Yes, I do think at least one product each month was worth $10 and something I loved. But, I did it for about a year and accumulated too many pouches and too many little products so I decided to cancel. I did give a pouch to each niece and a couple to friends.
The second favorite is a dry brush. I have been wanting to try “dry brushing” and my friend V used to do it. It is supposed to be great for your circulation and your skin, I think. I will let you know when I learn what to do! Anyone out there practice this? The dry brush came in my second and final FAB FIT FUN box that I accidentally received. I got the first one – the winter box for $39 but forgot/didn’t know I had to cancel and got the second spring box for $49? I think it’s a cool idea but I didn’t like everything in my boxes and didn’t want to be wasteful and that’s a much higher price point. I do know people that really love it, though. It is being plugged by tons of famous people!
The third favorite is this purse. I have been wanting one in this style for spring and saw this one at the boat open house in the L’Boatique mobile boutique that I showed you on Monday. It has a really fun print inside. Is it practical? No, it barely holds anything, but that’s not the point! I also carried it on Easter Sunday.
Another favorite below – Are you a sucker for “As Seen on TV” products like me? I hadn’t even seen this one on tv, but found it on the shelf at CVS. I really like it for $15.
And, it’s hard to believe I achieved this favorite – I managed to do the gym 3 times this week – every other day. By 7:14 p.m. on a gym day I already had 12,000 steps! It’s such a good feeling to know the workout is done so early. It really does make the rest of the day better.
Another favorite was a simple supper this week that the whole family enjoyed and was only 3 WW points for me. I don’t really cook a separate meal for me – just leave certain things off of my plate. But, this night I had an identical plate! Baked frozen tilapia with cajun seasoning and a tiny dusting of panko bread crumbs, frozen broccoli boiled for a few, Greek salad with just a touch of EVOO and lemon juice and a tiny bit of hashbrowns cooked in a skillet with Everything but the bagel seasoning.
A final favorite that I stole this off of a student’s Instagram – look at the wonderful group of students involved in such a grade A performance of Annie the Musical. My son is on the left in a onesie uniform. This is what he wore as Bundles the laundry man. He had four different roles! I will forever be grateful for this experience for him.
How was your week? Any favorites? What’s on tap for the weekend? The boys have some plans but our plans aren’t set in stone yet. I’m hoping for some good weather here! One of our boys has a ticket for Avengers End Game – it’s the only movie being shown today and tomorrow at our favorite theater. I can’t remember a time that happened in the past!
Make it a great one!
