It’s the freakin’ weekend baby I’m about to have me some fun.
[after I clean my house, clip my cats nails, run errands and do laundry]
There is little I love more than Ignition (Remix) by R. Kelly. Get’s me pumped every time.
Although my to do list is crazy long today, I am looking forward to a fun weekend with my bro and sis-in-law. We have a weekend full of food, food, food and drinks. Oh, and also a Bull’s game and Punch Brother’s concert. But mostly food. I always have SUCH A HARD TIME narrowing down where and what to eat when we have guests. I think we are going to try and stick to the classics this time around. Which means super unhealthy, fat-filled foods like pizza, Italian beef, hot dogs and burgers. There is no time to sleep and only time to eat and drink.
Hope you’re all having a glorious week. This week was complete crap due to the 7 inches of snow lake Michigan assisted in dumping on us. I can’t wait to go scrape/dig my car out. AGAIN. BUT, keeping with my attitude from last week I’m going to bundle up, cover my booty and enjoy the crisp beautiful snow instead. At least the sun is shining and I have a warm cat on my lap and hot coffee in hand!!!
Now, without further ado, here are my loves of the week:
Looking forward to warmer weather? Me too. Let’s pretend it’s summer. Turn your heat up to 80, turn on some Bob Marley, whip up some guacamole and make a batch of Paloma’s! They don’t even have to look as beautiful as these. Pour them into and old pasta sauce jar for all I care, just make them and then thank me after the hangover has subsided (because they’re so good you won’t be able to stop drinking them).
For Christmas, Mikey bought me a subscription to Glossybox. It’s the greatest gift because it is all beauty products and they arrive in pretty packaging once a month. Sometimes I love the products and others I pass along to friends. But this Kueshi Revitalizing Face Toner is the best thing in the world. I am obsessed with face wash and creams. I spend way too much money on them and have even convinced Mikey to (sort of) use them as well. I have combination skin and so I usually stick to scent-free lotions and toners and typically toner makes my face really red. This is the best thing I’ve ever used. It leaves your skin feeling refreshed like it has a layer of silk on it. That sounds extreme but I’m dead serious. It smells insanely good and is all natural. If you’re looking for a toner the truck stops here. This is what you’ve been searching for all these years. Your skin will thank you! Mikey collects shoes and has always told me I need a pair of dunks. Well, I finally found them. Just call me Beezy or Beezus, I answer to both and I’ll be over here polishing my gold Nike kicks if you need me.
I love things that are bold and at times over the top. I’m not afraid to wear super ugly things, it is actually somewhat of a hobby. When it comes to workout clothes I usually stick to black (it’s slimming, duh). But I really really love these leggings. I love them because they are creepy and amazing. Plus, when I read about them I felt empowered. These tights literally show what women are made of. Strong, beautiful and tough bones. Yeah, yeah. I’m on a croissant kick. These are a fun twist on a typical croissant, plus their green! Matcha powder is a fun ingredient to play with as well as a delicious one. You could also use these to make fun looking caterpillar croissants or little monster faces (the list is endless). These are filled with chocolate but you could also put some jam, white chocolate or Nutella and nuts! Either way, someone will be impressed if you make them some Matcha Croissants!
