What’s the story morning glory? How’s your day treating you? Is it Monday? Or is it Thursday? I’ve taken to calling everyday “DAY”. There is no Monday, there is no Tuesday, it’s just Day. But today I probably should put a little effort in as it’s Thursday and on Thursday we eat Tacos. Thank god there’s two days with T in them am I right? I am attempting to not burn the house today as I prepare Carne Asada and lime rice because I miss Chipotle like Oliver misses Elio. It’s that “my heart hurts I miss you so bad” feeling. Wish me luck because last week I tried making the rice and well, I had to throw out the pot after because that was one sticky ass mess. You know I can’t cook worth a damn. I’m going to try to do this it again tonight because I’ve looked up recipes and I really feel confident I can do it without killing myself or any more pots. Wish me luck.
I thought I’d share my current loves with you beauty and otherwise. Sound good? Feel free to jump in with your list this week!
I currently love…….
I stock pile it like the Zoflora factory is going to burn to the ground. I got lucky because my last trip to London I stocked up on a ton of the smaller bottles and I shipped them back home. In a world where Lysol no longer exists I am now forever in love with my little stash of Zoflora. I feel really grown up using it too and quite like Mrs Hinch! I’m WINNING the disinfect game over here people.
Dr. Denese Firming Facial Microdermabrasion Cream
I dunno what it is maybe it’s because I’ve been stuck up in this house for so long but my dry skin is extra dry lately. I’ve always loved it but I am REALLY loving and appreciating Dr. Denese Firming Facial Microdermabrasion Cream at the moment. It’s really great at exfoliating all the dry bits and reveals super smooth baby skin! Thank you for making me look 20 again Dr Denese.
Mrs Meyer’s Mint Collection
Two cleaning products in one post? Someone hand me my “I’m an Adult Now” certificate! I’m so glad that the Mrs Meyers brought back the Mint scent for Spring. I’m in love with the room spray and yeah, I may or may not like the counter spray and dish soap too. Yup, the signs are all there! I’m an adult now. When you start obsessing over cleaning supplies you’re doing adulting right.
Victoria’s Secret Bare Vanilla
Apparently I am obsessed with smelling like I did in the 8th grade. I see you, I know you were that girl (or guy) wearing Victoria’s Secret Body Mists (or Bath and Body Works Freesia) in Junior High School. I remember in the 7th grade my friend Christina got Angel Perfume for Christmas. This was like a big deal because I was so a late bloomer and I wasn’t really thinking fragrance at that age quite yet. I was still a bit of a bookworm. I just newly rediscovered the Bare Vanilla Body Mist from Victoria’s Secret and people, it feels like 8th grade all over again. It’s such a great vanilla scent and reminds me of vanilla cake! I might not be going out right now but I smell yummy!
Itazura na Kiss
I told myself I WOULD not re-watch It Started with a Kiss during this quarantine! Why? Because I’ve seen it so many times my eyes are about to bleed. Joe Cheng swoon! My promise to myself did not include re-reading it though! I hit my manga shelf and pulled out the complete set of Itazura na Kiss to re-read because I have a type and it’s obviously indifferent guys. I’m talking to you Mr Darcy and you too, Naoki Irie.
I am too old for Tiktok. But it has turned into the biggest waste of my time during isolation! I am constantly amazed, amused, and on occasion shocked by the content people put up. When Instagram started becoming a popular social media pick for the beauty and makeup world I begrudgingly signed up for it. It’s not really my favorite place in the world. It can be a negative experience at times not to mention I find the whole let’s post a selfie every five minutes really tiring. I don’t like to take photos of myself and I really don’t like posting them on Insta. We get enough of my mugging on Musings of a Muse no need to do more of it on another site. It’s still a platform that I resent a little bit because it feels like beauty lovers migrated away from blogs to get their info about the latest makeup releases, swatches, etc…from it. It makes me a bit sad. Oddly, enough I sort of embraced Tiktok wholeheartedly unlike Instagram. It’s just pure dumb fun. I’ve made a slew of new friends and arranged to meet up with two of them (after all this is over) that I met over our mutual crush on a fellow Tiktoker. It’s weird how new friends and people enter your life isn’t it?
Heretic Dirty Lemon Eau de Parfum
Heretic recently popped up at Sephora and it reminded me how much I love their Dirty Lemon Fragrance. I think Heretic is convinced that Dirty Lemon is as smooth and naughty as John Wozniak’s crooning “I smell sex and candy”. Sadly, it isn’t. There’s no sex to be had here. There is candy though…! Lemon candy to be exact. Dirty Lemon is a zesty, tart, and slightly cheeky fragrance that I’m currently loving. It brightens up my dull isolated day to wear it.
Us, Our Community
I love us! We make such a great family and community here on Musings of a Muse. I know my comments are crazy and I sometimes take a LONGGGG time to reply to them but I read EVERY single one of them and do my best to get to them all! Thank you for keeping me sane during an insane time. Thank you for making this your home for a few minutes or hours a day!
So, that’s what I’m currently loving.
How about you?
Make your list, post it, discuss!
Looking forward to reading your replies.
