Hi Friends. Thanks for joining me for another Friday Favorites episode. I have some goodies for you today…
- Nail polish… Brand= Sinful Colors Professional; Color= Pink Forever. Usually I like my Essie polishes, but I was looking for just the right shade of bubble gum pink (I say the term “bubble gum pink about 85 times in this episode… you’re welcome). Lo and behold I found what I was looking for at Marshalls (by the checkout). I love the quality and color of this polish. It’s lasted two weeks without any major scuffs. Love it and the bright color just makes the winter dreariness so much happier. If you’re a finger nail polish person, give it a try. (Please note it’s the color on my nails in the pic below).
- “The Fringe Hours” by Jessica Turner. I just finished this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t know about you, but this 24/7 motherhood business can be pretty tough sometimes. Between tending to your children and being there for your husband, there seems to be very little time left for YOU. The Fringe Hours, is the term she uses for those pockets of time during the day where you can do something for yourself. I love how she mentions that if you look over your day, you’ll find various times of waste, waiting, or available minutes where you can truly choose how you spend your time. And if we are wise, we will do the things that bring us joy, fill our soul, and serve us well. Instead of just waiting idly at the doctor’s office, have a good book in your purse to pass the time. At night when you are exhausted, do the dishes REALLY need to be done, or can you choose to cozy up on the couch with a warm cup of tea? I love this idea that when we are energizing ourselves through small doses of “me-time”, we can truly be better as we serve those around us.
- Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. These are little bites of heaven. They also come in milk chocolate, if dark chocolate isn’t your jam, but trust me… these are gooooood. They come in a container over above the freezer section or in a plastic bag in a smaller quantity at checkout. Throw these in the cart next time you are checking out. Sooo good and the perfect treat at the end of the day (or middle, or beginning… anytime really).
So there you go. Enjoy my three favorite things for this week. Talk to you on Instagram for Mom Talk Monday!
