Did you blink? Because February is gone… just like that! I certainly know I nearly missed it!
CURRENT OSCAR PLANS:
Last month when I wrote my currently post, I shared all about the fabulous Oscar party I was planning to attend. Well, I still watched the Oscars… but it was from the comfort of my couch here in Colorado. My flight to Nashville got cancelled due to an ice storm, my fabulous Rent the Runway dresses were delayed due to the conditions in Nashville, and then we got dumped on with snow over the weekend in Colorado too.
Oscars in yoga pants… that’s how I watched them this year.
So… last summer, I started wearing more bold lip colors, and I LOVE IT! It all happened right about the time I went to Fitbloggin and well… it was a little contagious! Since then, my girl Pauly and I are constantly sharing new bright, bold shades that we’re trying… Seriously, that lady can ROCK a bold lip. Incredibly FIERCE!!!
So, I decided to add a “current” lip color in her honor… and this month, I’m featuring Aveda’s Nourish-Mint Magenta Berry. And, it’s GORGEOUS on while being slightly minty upon application.
I’ve watched so many movies over the past few months prepping for the Oscars. During the snowstorm last weekend, I watched a few films that hadn’t been nominated.
St. Vincent: I loved this movie. Every single moment of it. I love that it featured Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy in non-comedic roles, and that by the end of the movie you fell in love with the curmudgeon that was Vin. It’s heartfelt, and a must see in my book.
Best of Me: I tend to love Nick Sparks movies… but this one is one you can skip. Best of Me… not the best of him.
CURRENT COOKING OBSESSION:
I’m a little obsessed with cauliflower lately.
From the whole roasted cauliflower I made over the weekend to the cauliflower crust pizza that I’m planning on making. That white tree-like veggie is my go-to right now.
I love where I live. I love my place. I mostly love the weather (unless it’s snowing!)… but it’s time for this girl to get out of dodge for a few days.
When I’m home too long, I get a little stir-crazy and it’s official. I’m there. My next planned trip isn’t until May, but I need to jet-set between now and then.
CURRENT ESSENTIAL OIL:
I’m obsessed with this organic lavender oil right now. I’m using it every night before I go to bed. I simply rub it between my hands… and inhale before drifting off to a deep sleep. It’s been lovely, and is becoming part of my nighttime ritual.
I received a pre-release copy of Andie Mitchell’s memoir It Was Me All Along, and I didn’t expect it… but I didn’t want to read it… as a hard copy. Yep, I’ve been spoiled by the digital age and couldn’t get into the paperback version of the book…
I downloaded the eBook this month and I’m devouring the book. It is beautifully written, incredibly relatable, and definitely something you should read if you’ve ever struggled with your weight.
And… I’m giving away my paperback copy in my product giveaway this week. Click here for all the details and to enter to win!
CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION LOVE:
My friend Melanie introduced me to the Fit Fab Fun box, and I received my first one this month! If you haven’t yet tried this one, it’s a seasonal box filled with amazing gifts that keep you Fit, Fab, and Fun!
The winter box was full of healthy snacks, beauty products, and an amazing candle… and it even had a few gift cards in it that I used to make some online purchases (hello new skirt and new Zumba top!) LOVING IT! Can’t wait to see what comes next in the spring box!! Click my referral link here to try it out!
CURRENT WATER TRICK:
It’s hard to believe I’ve been #backontrack with my weight loss process for two months already. And, not only is it important that I’m eating the right foods, but my water intake is critical. I can’t get stuck at my desk all day long without refilling my water cup. That just doesn’t work.
So, enter the straw cup…
I easily down 5+ of these in a day… filling up on my way to the ladies room. I even added new water cups to my “Rewards Program” for 2015. If you haven’t tried this, it’s time! I’m dying over that Kate Spade on the right…
CURRENT SHOPPING TRIP:
It’s been months since I’ve gone on a shopping spree. Unhappy with how clothes had been fitting on me and on all the holiday sparkle that was in stores (seriously, what’s up with that… horrible), I finally set foot in my favorite store again last week – New York and Company – and got all sorts of new goodies.
It’s amazing how a new look can add a little pep in your step… and this totally worked. It even inspired me to clean out my closet a little bit more to make room for the new duds!
Like many of y’all out there, I’m finding myself drawn to Ed Sheeran… especially this song.
I’ve come across so many wonderful products and samples over the years. Unfortunately, I don’t always have time to use everything I receive, so I tend to share them with all of you!
I may even add a few extra goodies to this box as the week goes on… more surprises for the lucky winner. Click here to enter to win!
