We've made it through the first week of 2014. We didn't hit the end of the world (oh, Hollywood...). And while reigning in the new year--homebody stylée--I began to note my beauty resolutions. Yet, it's a week later and I'm still adding another to the list: more lifestyle posting.
Is there any denying the fact that there has been a great influx in beauty products in my life? Non, so to peter the crème de la crème to trois would be infeasible. Instead, I've penned and narrowed down a lonesome three items for this week's most loved notes.
I've often been called a 'fish' on account of my water guzzling prowess--and often get annoyed looks from waiters as the return
Yet, perhaps not as often if it weren't for this red mug. Although I turned it around in the picture--dumb move, Lillian--it showcases a single 'L' in blue print that compliments the red floral print. And it's also massive; massive enough to hold those gallons of hot tea.
Despite the current exceeding jars of wicks ready to be lit in my living quarters, I just had to add another. I was in Anthropologie (who sells the most amazing candles, by the way) and staggered around--as you do when you're executing the task of 'Christmas shopping.' I stumbled upon the Boulangerie candles, the brand of which boasts my single 'burn to the bottom' light: the Whipped Cream and Pear candle. Their holiday scents were on sale, and do you really think I could resist that? I parted with their Gingersnap Candle; it's warm, spicy, and slightly sweet. Boulangerie's candles tend to be more sugary to say the least, but they're never over the top and smell lovely.
And when it's time to blow the candle out and to roll up the covers (four layers worth, in my situation), I've been spritzing the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on my pillow before I begin counting sheep. The blend of lavender, chamomile, and vetivert is calming and a subtle sniff is inhaled with each breath. Luckily, the blend is made with one hundred percent pure essential oils, so you won't be nosing any artificial perfumes. Also, This Works conducted a study, testing the value of their calming spray, and the participants fell asleep faster, had a deeper sleep, felt less tired in the morning, and felt less anxious when their heads hit the pillow. Just remind me not to get too spritz happy when I have an early wakeup call.
Unfortunately, tomorrow's another monday, but, on the contrary, my room will be smelling nicer, I'll get a better night's rest, and I'll have all those extra antioxidants amassed in my system; these are essentials, I tell you.
