Week in Review

23 Aug

As I type this, I’m sitting on the couch watching TV with my dog Oscar sound asleep right next to me. Right before this, I made mashed potatoes from scratch. I was craving good food, but didn’t want to leave the house. Basically, it’s been a good night. I wish every night was this relaxing! I was expecting to be all moved into my new place by now, but my mattress shipment has gotten screwed up multiple times. My fingers are crossed that I’ll be able to share some room updates soon! In the meantime, here are some things I enjoyed this week:

1. How clever is this post from Magical Simplicity? Annie shares her tips for creating a “renter’s resume” to simplify the rental process. Because my full-time job is in real estate, rentals make up a ton of my business. I understand how stressful the process can be, and this is a really cute and smart way to give a brief rundown of yourself to a potential landlord.

2. I had my first dermaplaning experience yesterday, and I am hooked! My amazing cousin Kimberly works at Mitchell’s, and gave me the treatment yesterday. Simply put, dermaplaning is an exfoliation process that removes the dead skin cells on your top layer of skin. They take a tiny razor, and it removes all the hair on your face. This sounds scary, but it isn’t at all. It actually felt weirdly satisfying as it was happening because I could feel my skin getting instantly smoother. She also put some serums on my face to help with rosacea and breakouts. The dermaplaning process is supposed to help with acne scars and other skin imperfections. I can already say that my skin feels amazing, and I’m excited to see the results in the next few days.

3. Piperlime launched their new site this week, which seems to be a lot more social media driven. I’ve been addicted to Piperlime for years, so I loved the old site. One of the things I love about the relaunch is that you can easily see how women are styling their Piperlime purchases. They have a social media feed set up on the site, so it’s fun to browse through and get some style inspiration! Chrissy Teigen and her fashion picks are currently being featured on the site.

4. This mango mint limeade slush looks insanely refreshing! The recipe calls for frozen mango chunks, which I have like five bags of sitting in the freezer. Who doesn’t love mangos? Also, slushy drinks are always a good choice in the summer.

    Hope your mattress arrives soon! Piperlime is one of my favorite online retailers… I’m still trying to get used to the look of the new site, but it is fun to see how different people style various items. Have a wonderful weekend!

      You’re welcome Annie! The moving in process is really moving slow, because I am so insanely busy with work! Hopefully soon I’ll be settled in.
