Keeping It Current

Life has been absolutely crazy since I’ve returned from my trip, but I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and catch you all up on some current happenings and obsessions.

Lush // Recently, I made two new purchases from the handmade, organic cosemetic store Lush – the Big Blue Bath Bomb and Cup O’Coffee face and body mask. I’ve previously tried a bath bomb and enjoyed it so I thought I’d try out another.

Big Blue promised a relaxing, oceanic experince; however, I somehow missed the fine print where it said there would be literal pieces of seaweed in the bathtub with you (see image below). If bathing with seaweed relaxes you, then this is right up your alley! As for me, tiny bits of the water plant give me anxiety so it wasn’t the best experience for me. Also, the cleaning of the seaweed was a pain; I don’t usually like to give the bath tub a good scrubbing after my soak, but I felt the need to after this one. I give it a 7/10 for the scent and the beautiful color it leaves the water.

As for the Cup O’Coffee face and body mask, a ton of bloggers I follow have raved about the product so I had to give it a try. I bought the smaller version as I have sensitive skin and am allergic to most things under the sun and, you guys, I’m obsessed! It smells amazing (if you like the smell of coffee), and makes my skin feel unbelievably smooth. The only thing I recommend is not using it before bed as it does have caffeine in it and will keep you up all night – trust me, I learned this the hard way.

The Skimm // I like to start off my mornings with a cup of coffee and The Skimm. Interested in staying up to date on current events without biased BS? Join me and the rest of the Skimm community by signing up here today!  It’s quick, easy, and super entertaining; I promise you won’t regret it!

Zara // Now onto my favorite latest obsession: Zara! Since there aren’t any that are close to where I live, I jumped on the chance to explore one of the stores in Florence while in Italy. Needless to say, I loved it and picked up the two tops featured in the photo above. Have I mentioned how much I love neutrals?

Game of Thrones // Last summer, I got hooked on Game of Thrones, but barely made it through the second season before life got hectic. Just the other night, I re-downloaded HBO Now so that I can finally watch it all the way through before the new season starts.

That’s all for me this week! What have you been up to?

Keeping it Current

Just today I was converted into a huge Madewell fan. I swear their jeans are absolute magic; I have an odd body shape, and I’ve never had jeans fit me properly. But, let me tell you, when I slipped into my first pair of Madewell jeans today, I became a believer.

Recently, I tried my first bath bomb from Lush Cosmetics (this one to be exact) and it’s great for those days when you want a relaxing bath, but don’t necessarily want to be covered in bubbles. My only complaint with this bath bomb in particular is that you have to clean the rose petals out of the bottom of the tub when you’re done.

I’m still obsessing over Justin Timberlake’s opening number of Can’t Stop the Feeling at the Oscars. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the video, I promise you won’t regret it. Plus, if you’re anything like me, the song will get you on your feet and dancing as if you’re one of his backup dancers.

If you don’t already, feel free to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. I usually follow back if I’m paying attention to notifications, and I give insights into my personal life on all of them. Tonight in particular, I’m live tweeting the Oscars, and I think I’m really funny so go check it out!
