Got a little time for some retail therapy. Taking whole days off is easier said than done for a business owner. Often there is a shift to cover at my espresso bar ( baba ) or a class to teach at ( yoga80 ) and when I have a day off I usually just sub it myself. But I have been making the effort to find someone else and stick to taking a full day without going in. Of course there is still computer work to do and these days off are spent cleaning my home along with personal care and shopping. Here are a some of my spring favorites.
Recently I've added these Thayer Witch Hazel Pads and this SG Aloe Mist to my daily face routine. This combo plumps up my skin and makes my pores smaller. After I've washed my face I use the Witch Hazel Pads to tone and get my skin extra clean then I spray the Aloe Mist which is super stimulating then I calm it all down with my face cream and proceed with the little bit of makeup I use for a simple fresh look.
When I find a brand that works I stick to it. Honestly other underwear just sit in my drawer and in an effort to manage my time wisely I recently pitched all but my Cosabella and stocked up on a few more. Another one of my go to brands is swimwear by Acacia. This is my fourth year in a row I've purchasing an acacia suit. Because I know my size I find them online and on sale and they are still pricy but I justify it by not wasting my time or money on buying multiple suits for the summer. All four of my Acaia bikinis have held up well and I still wear them.
When you have the right tool for the job it can be easy. Apparently I have a thing for brushes. A bottle brush for those large jars and skinny vases, this small thin brush for cleaning out my glass straws, dish brush for cleaning the dishes, these last three on the right are for cleaning vegetables and this little round one on the end is for brushing clean mushrooms. This marble cutting board and cheese knifes were a total find a Homegoods and are my go to for a simple yet sophisticated presentation for most meals these days.
