There are a few products I love so much I can’t bear to take them off my countertop, which is saying something because I like to keep my bathroom countertops as tidy as possible… all the time. However, I’m also a creature of convenience, and I reach for these items too much to ever put them properly away. So there they sit - contently on my counter. I love them all for different reasons, and they are…
I was a little girl, about seven or eight, and my Dad was driving me to school one day when I very nonchalantly asked him, “Daddy, have you started saving up yet?” Inside, I think he beamed with pride thinking “My sweet little girl wants to make sure she can go to college,” but he calmly asked, “For what honey?” I excitedly responded in about 0.5 seconds, “For my wedding!” That may have been the moment my Dad realized he was in trouble, but it’s one of our favorite memories, and we still laugh about it.
I spoke about this briefly in my April Favorites post, but some of the best task-management advice I’ve ever gotten was to create a daily to do list. I was listening to a keynote address by Emma Chapman of “A Beautiful Mess” when she shared this pearl of wisdom, but I thought, “daily… did she say daily… like every day???” Initially, it seemed like a lot of work, but I was listening to a very successful woman about her most productive tool, and I wanted to absorb her success like a sponge. With that in mind, I decided to give it a shot and committed to making a to-do list every single day for a month. Want to know what happened???
On one blissful morning last week, all of the kids had slept past 7:00 a.m. That almost never happens, and I loved the early solitude. It was Monday morning, and I wasn’t about to upset the apple cart and wake any of these sleeping babes up, right? That was a rookie mistake, and I ended up paying dearly for my error in judgment.
I love discovering what’s new in my neighborhood. Houston, in particular, is a city that’s always evolving and I really enjoy paying attention to how it develops and changes over the years. A few weeks ago I noticed there was something new in the niche of a nearby shopping center - Chic Lash Boutique. With all of the new beauty trends on the market, I was curious what services they offered so I decided to pop in. The boutique was adorable, so I made an appointment for eyebrow threading and lash tinting on the spot. That session went so well that I decided to go back for more - eyelash extensions!
