1. Meet me at Rue La Rue Café
As you may or may not know, I am moderately — OK, intensely — obsessed with The Golden Girls.
There are lots of reasons. Like, I dig their naughty humor (even though it went over my head when I was younger), the camaraderie among the women, the fabulous ’80s fashion, and Sophia Petrillo had THE BEST lines.
Well, get your shoulder pads and your shimmery genie pants ready, because a Golden Girls-themed cafe is now open in New York City!
It’s called Rue La Rue (of course it is).
Do you think they serve cheesecake?? (They do.) I want to fly cross country just to have brunch.
Also in breaking Golden Girls news, all seven seasons start streaming on Hulu February 13th.
You’re welcome. 🙂
2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Light
I love bronzer. Always. 24/7/365. But with all the rain we’ve been having (seriously, it just won’t stop!), my skin hasn’t seen the light of day in…I can’t even remember how long. I look borderline jaundiced. The yellow tones are turned up, and I have zero natural bronzy glow.
I rediscovered Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Bronze Light last week (I just sort of forgot about it for a while), and it’s giving me life. I’ve been all about that sun-kissed deliciousness.
Funny thing is…when it first came out, I just felt so-so about it. I think it was because I wasn’t using it with the right brush, but the trick, I’ve found, is it to use the biggest, fluffiest face brush you’ve got, one that covers a big area, and lightly pat the product (don’t sweep).
The undertones are warm and delicate, so if you use a face brush with a compact, dense brush head, you run the risk of ending up with orange, shiny stripes. If you apply it with a big, fluffy powder brush, on the other paw, and do a series of light pats on your cheek bones, across the bridge of your nose and around the edges of your face, it warms everything up and bathes your skin in the light of a buttery sunset.
3. Work, work, work, work, work, work…
I love this choreography set to Rihanna’s Work by JoJo Gomez.
Um…can someone please teach me how to move like this?
I love all the booty shakin’! It’s kinda naughty. 🙂
4. Think of the big picture
I read somewhere recently about big-picture thinking, and how it’s important to make time for it every week.
I love the idea! I just added a reminder to my calendar to spend an hour on big-picture thinking every Wednesday afternoon.
For an hour every Wednesday over the next four weeks, I’m going to give my mind permission to wander, brainstorm, and dream big dreams about my personal and professional lives.
Dream big dreams! That’s the key here.
Been doing it more than usual lately and using less dry shampoo. I’ve mostly conditioner-washed my hair for years and just shampooed once a week (if that), and then I used dry shampoo on the in-between days to save time.
It is more work to shampoo, condition and style my hair, but stuff changed over the past year. My scalp went rogue on me! I don’t know if it’s from the pregnancy (my body went cray, for real!), but my hair and scalp are happier when I shampoo two or three times a week.
I don’t think I’ll ever go back to washing my hair every day like I did in my teens and 20s, but I’ve been lovin’ a good every-other-day shampoo.
What are some things you’ve been loving lately? 🙂
