A day in the life - 1-18-17

Today I just don't have it in me to blog about beauty. I woke up this morning feeling like a zombie with a plate full of pressing stuff to tackle... and I didn't feel like doing ANY of it. So I brewed a pot of coffee (I'm not a big coffee drinker, but today it felt needed), and I set out to get some of that stuff done. You know what I've done so far? I had a bagel for breakfast, continued my rewatch of The 100 on Netflix, went to pick up my mom's cat at the vet, and then I had lunch. All while keeping an eye on my dog and taking him out when he needed it. *sigh*

Here's my set-up this morning. Coffee to the right. haha! I have circled some stuff in the photo. Bottom left is the book I'm currently reading, Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake. There's a lot of details in the book, and a lot of names and backstory - she's building an entire kindgom here! It's longer than "normal" YA stuff that I've read lately. But so far I'm enjoying it, and I really like everything I've read from this author before. And the tape? I'm the PTO secretary at my son's school, and we are in the middle of a Boxtops competition. The class that sends in the most will get a pizza party. That tape has been used to tape 90 boxtops to their papers so far...

For Christmas, my husband listened to me when I told him I wouldn't mind a chalkboard tray from May & Martha (they went on sale for half price). This is what I've written on it haha! I need to practice with chalk transfers to make it prettier :)

In the past year (and a few months), I've lost 50 lbs. Which is great! Except now I don't feel comfortable in my body at all. In a lot of ways, I feel worse in my own skin than I did pre-weight loss. I feel flabby and like my skin is hanging. It's kind of blech. So yesterday, when I was at the store, I grabbed this Nivea Skin Forming Hydration Body Lotion. We'll see. It likes my Zoya lipsticks haha

Maybe I'll be able to blog about beauty tomorrow. I've been trying to get this post up for a few hours. I kept having to do other things or go other places. I do have so much fun stuff to show you guys!
