What I Am Loving Lately

IMG_4536IMG_4535I thought I would share a few things I am loving lately.  A few might not be anything new or special to you, but apparently, I am behind the times with some of these things.

So, Rourke and I are new to the tv-show-binge-watching scene.  I know, I know… You probably think we live under a rock or something.

Well, it was one winter’s night, and for once there was no football, golf or basketball on.  Crazy!  And, all of our favorite sit-coms were re-runs.

My mom, a veteran to the tv-show scene, highly recommended Poldark  to us.  She actually gave us the first season on dvd.  So, with nothing better to watch, we fired up the DVD player and proceeded to fall hook-line-and-sinker and now know what the hoopla is about.

We just finished the third season on Amazon Prime  and are anxiously awaiting the next season in June.

I picked up this cookbook  at our school’s book fair, recently. I follow her blog frequently and love everything I have tried by her.  The pictures and recipes are so inviting.   I have already been cooking up some of these yummy, healthy recipes.  The nutritional value is listed under each recipe, plus there are tons of slow-cooker recipes to boot.  A plus for this working gal!IMG_4523.JPGIMG_4524.JPG

Okay, I recently redeemed some of my unused sky miles for some new magazines subscriptions.  I apparently put the wrong number in the slot, because somehow I am now receiving Fortune Magazine???? Anyhoo, I picked it up to read it to see what it was all about.

I stumbled upon an article about the HQ app craze .  And, then the next day, Hayley told me about it.  It is basically a trivia show on your phone that happens each day at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Central time. It has 12 questions.  If you answer all of them correctly, you win money!!!

I thought this is right up Rourke’s alley.  He always wins at Trivial Pursuit.  Dollar signs in my eyes, I encouraged him to try it.  I decided to try it, too.  We have yet to win any money, but we are having fun playing it!!!

I have been following @omwithallee on Insta lately.  She inspires me with the most amazing yoga poses in beautiful places.  I hope to be able to maybe master one or two of these some day!IMG_4528

I don’t know if you saw my Kristin Ess Hair Product Review.  But, I am loving this new product  by her.  It is a recovery balm and cap.  You apply to roots and cover with a cap.  I sleep with it.  It contains castor oil, which is supposed to promote hair growth!IMG_4529.JPGIMG_4530.JPG

Target just got in this line of seaweed facial regimen.  I tried the face wash and this micro-scrub.  I love how this scrub makes my face feel. It claims to be detoxifying and age-defying.  It is paragon and sulfate-free and is not tested on animals. It leaves this wonderful, tingly sensation.  I am looking forward to trying more of this line.IMG_4531.JPG

So if you saw my IG stories, Rourke and I saw the new Fifty movie.  I downloaded the soundtrack before so we could listen on our way to the movie.  I LOVE EVERY SONG AND CAN’T STOP LISTENING TO THIS!!

Toodle-oo,
