Let’s start out April with a few things I’m loving right now. I want to stay as positive as humanly possible this month. Can I willfully shame the sadness and anxiety away? NO! But can I dampen it’s effects a little? MAYBE! But seriously. April is full of sunshine and flowers and this is just a GREAT month and I’m ready to try to shake off the shit from March – OH! And I have a new therapist I’m trying next week. I’m about 100% sure she’s the Mom of one of my kid’s friends (unusual last name, I could kinda see this woman as a therapist) and I’m not sure if that’s weird or not. We’ll see!
Without further ado – a few things I’m loving right now. I’d love to hear what you’re loving – especially if it relates to 1) Pens 2) Cruelty Free Cosmetics or 3) Joyful Television.
- My two favorite types of pens Signo 307 retractable and Energel Metal Tip 0.7 are made by Uniball and Pentel respectively. SO! I’m always looking in those sections for sales and new colors and one day I noticed Uniball had a new pen: Uniball Air Rollerball and it’s not retractable (I hate having to keep up with pen lids) but I gave it a whirl anyway and while it feels MUCH bolder than a 0.7, and it’s DEFINITELY a lot “wetter” is the best way I can describe, I’m really kinda digging it. I find myself reaching for it more and more lately!
- So, awhile ago my friend got a rabbit and while I’ve not met the rabbit in person, I’ve kinda fallen in love with her via pictures. Chelsea decided to start going cruelty-free on all cosmetics because she started thinking of her lovely rabbit being subjected to cruel tests and I was like, “OH MY GOD. NOT SPARKLE!” And I decided to do the same. I’ve been slowly but surely switching over based on how much of the cheap stuff I had and it’s so funny because one of the products seems to have cured the scalp psoriasis I had! I switched to this conditioner from Shea Moisture and within a couple of weeks it had basically vanished and it had been bothering me for MONTHS. The last time I got a bad case I chopped off my hair because when my hair gets past a certain length I get it and chopping off my hair seems like a good solution. I had already started considering chopping off my hair and I’m SO GLAD I DIDN’T! I hope this stuff continues to make me happy. I’m a little concerned about how this is going to affect our budget, I accidentally went over on “groceries” this month and I think that might be why. I might need to look into making my own stuff but the last time I tried I was SOOO messy and SUCH a pain in the ass.
- I’ve always liked the show New Girl well enough, nothing I couldn’t miss, but it was fine. But lately y’all? It’s cracking my ass UP. And I honestly think it was the episodes without Jess, weirdly enough, that let the other characters shine. I’ve loved Max Greenfield since Veronica Mars (he was my favorite of all of the love interests) but he’s funny as HELL as Schmidt and I just can’t get enough. I can’t tell if I love Greenfield or Schmidt but either way – LOVE LOVE LOVE. Give him and Cece their own spinoff and make me the happiest woman in the world.
