Woohoo it’s Friday! Who is excited for the weekend?! I’m working from home today and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited. I may even get my run done during lunch but we shall see. I hope you all have a wonderful day 🙂
I got my Clarisonic for Christmas 2015. It was a Christmas present that I knew was coming since I was the one that bought it ha! In my defense, my friend works for L’Oreal (did you know they own about 124685 different cosmetic brands?) so it was much cheaper to buy it through her at the company store and then have my parents pay me back. Anyways, I stopped using it back around Christmas since the battery died and I forgot to charge it. Well I plugged it in this week and it’s been great! The first night I used it, the dry skin on my face was less noticeable and it felt like my moisturizer was able to sink into my skin more easily.
This might seem like a weird thing to be obsessed with but seriously it’s been amazing. I made a big sausage and potato dish on Saturday night knowing there would be leftovers for multiple meals. Plus we had a ton of leftover chicken from burrito bowls on Monday so I haven’t had to cook since then. Sometimes you need a week with minimal cooking!
The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell
This book was really intriguing from the start. I saw some mixed reviews about the end so I was dying to see what the end was. This book sucked me in from the start. It was Suzanne Rindell’s first novel and I have to say it was a hit! The ending is definitely something I can see people having different opinions on. Personally, I’m still not sure what happened but in a good way! If you read this book, we will have to discuss to compare our thoughts.
The synopsis from Barnes & Noble’s website “Confessions are Rose Baker’s job. A typist for the New York City Police Department, she sits in judgment like a high priestess. Criminals come before her to admit their transgressions, and, with a few strokes of the keys before her, she seals their fate. But while she may hear about shootings, knifings, and crimes of passion, as soon as she leaves the room, she reverts to a dignified and proper lady. Until Odalie joins the typing pool. As Rose quickly falls under the stylish, coquettish Odalie’s spell, she is lured into a sparkling underworld of speakeasies and jazz. And what starts as simple fascination turns into an obsession from which she may never recover”
I bought this bag to make trail mix…except I ended up digging into before then. Cashews are my weakness currently. I grab a few when I want a little snack before or after dinner but don’t want to make a mess but want something healthy. If I’m going to have an actual snack with these, I will take an actual portion. I prefer the unsalted variety since I think salted nuts are waaaaay to salty. Anyone else think they should make a lightly salted version of roasted nuts?!
