I’m so sorry I haven’t shared my 5 favorite things for a few weeks. I’ve just been in such a rut lately and I honestly don’t know why. Wednesday was the first time in a little while that I felt 100% like myself and was “hungry”. Hungry for more. Hungry for life. Hungry for Curls and Mo…if that makes any sense. My urge to push Curls and Mo was renewed and I worked on a few things I had been neglecting like Curly Card Night. Here are the things I loved this week…
Body Shop Tea Tree Skincare Products: Last week I stopped by the Body Shop to pick up some of their Tea Tree toner. I had read so many great things about tea tree oil and how good it is for your skin that I was excited when I learned that Living Social credited my account $15 (I still don’t know why) and that there was a current $10 for $20 Body Shop promotion. Obviously I took advantage of it and bought the entire kit. I’ve been using it for the past week and have seen wonderful results.
OPI Nail Polish: I’ve always been an essie girl but lately I find myself buying and loving OPI polishes. I love that it leaves my nails glossy and shiny before even applying a top coat! Check out one of my OPI looks here.
Local Coffee Shops: I recently found an amazing vegan coffee shop in my neighborhood! It has a Manhattan feel without the Manhattan prices or crowd and all of the food is fresh and tasty. I love it! I’ve gone there several times with friends and every time I love it even more. I found it on Yelp. Definitely check sites like Yelp and Google to find small, local businesses to fall in love with and support.
Setbacks and Disappointments: Lately things have been a little topsy-turvy for me. It’s hard to be at peace with where you are in life when you know you’re not where you want to be in life. However, I had to remind myself that I am SO blessed. Not many people have done and accomplished what I have so I really need to count my blessings. I also had to remind myself that if it wasn’t for the setbacks and disappointments in life we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the amazing things that happen to us.
