1. Hourglass Girl in Peacemaker
Found this creamy nude lippie tucked away in a bag the other day and remembered how much I love it.
2. Pastel nails
But you probably knew that already, ha ha! When I go through a phase, I’m all in, man. This week I’m wearing a creamy peachy pink, Sally Hansen Her-Oine, from the Mega Strength line.
3. One Strange Rock (on Netflix)
All I have to say about this National Geographic nature series I just started watching on Netflix is this: If you’re into fun facts, you’ll learn A LOT. Rather, I sure have. You’ll sail through Final Jeopardy if you watch this show, which is narrated by Will Smith. It explores Earth sciences and general cool tidbits of knowledge through the eyes of eight real life astronauts, and I learned so many new things in the first episode alone! Like, that there’s something called “marine snow,” or that there’s a floating river of water high above the Amazon, or that dust storms that originate in Africa are constantly sending waves of minerals over the oceans to South America…
Our planet 🌍 is amazing.
FYI, there’s an incredible scene in the first episode of a newly born baby taking its first breath. I’m just saying — this softie was bawling.
4. Hot water with lemon
I don’t know where I got this idea…but I think it was from reading the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy, now that I think about it. The main characters were always drinking hot water with lemon.
I drink this, too, but not really because of the taste.
I mean, it tastes a’ight, like how you’d expect hot water with lemon to taste, but I drink it because I like how it feels. The hot (but not too hot) water going down my throat is kinda relaxing, and then I can feel the warmth spread across my chest.
It’s weirdly addictive. This morning alone I’ve had four big mugs, and I’m about to make another.
5. Outdoor rugs for inside
I’ve been looking for a rug for the dining room, and I read somewhere that using an outdoor rug for high-traffic indoor areas, especially when pets or kids are involved, is a good idea, because outdoor rugs are generally made to withstand it, and they’re usually easier to clean than most regular indoor rugs.
I also like this vintage floral, although I don’t know if it would work in my dining room because the walls are blue… I think all of them would hide the crumbs (and cat hair) well, though.
And that’s it for me. What have you been loving lately?
