Here are the things that bring me joy lately.
Home and Family
My Baby Girl Turned 7. My middle child. My sweet baby girl. My bubbly little ball. I thank God for her everyday. We set the entire day for the mall, a movie and lunch. The kids loved it and and it was a much needed leisure time for me.
Cookie Butter Toast. We may be late to the cookie butter trend but alas, we are madly in love with it. My husband and I have it for desserts and snacks. It is our 5 minute bonding time over the kitchen counter. If you have not tried cookie butter, you should!
Personal and Miscellaneous
My New Legend Planner This planner is perfect for what I need. I previously bought a cheaper one that is small and basic, then quickly switched to this one because I realize I need more sections and writing space.
Jade Leaf Organic Matcha On weekends or whenever I have more time in the mornings, I love to make myself a cup of hot matcha latte! I love this package since it is small. I bought a large can years ago and it ended up sitting for months to its expiration. This one is perfect for the occasional matcha drinker.
Skincare and Cosmetics
While I do not have the perfect complexion, I love my regimen now. They address what I need and give my skin the treatment it needs. I keep things simple and cost effective too.
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream This is my form of make up every single day. So many good things to say about this product. First off-it is also my daily sunscreen because it has SPF. Secondly, it is light and not cakey at all making it perfect for that no-make up look. Third, it has a variety of shades to cover most skin tones.
The Ordinary Multi Peptide plus HA Serum This keeps my skin hydrated. I used to suffer from dry looking skin even on summers ( and especially on windy days). Adding this serum to my regimen definitely helped with that, plus my textures since to be less noticeable.
The Ordinary 100% Cold-Pressed Argan Oil. This is my last layer of skin care before the Bare Minerals Hydrating gel |I mentioned above. It is very moisturizing and gives me a slight healthy sheen. I have been using this on and off for almost 3 years now.
Shows and Movies
Wild Mountain Thyme I love the scenery. I love Emily blunt. The country/ farm life is enticing!
Beef. I have never seen a show that affected me so much the way this did. I kept thinking about it for days after watching it. The plot maybe be stagnant and boring in the beginning, but it hooks you deeper and deeper as it progresses. The ending is so heartwarmingly spectacular and the male lead character is so imperfect and endearing.
