Current Obsessions v.1

Whew, what a weekend it was! As I mentioned last week, I started the 24 day Advocare challenge. Which meant I stayed in as much as possible this weekend because I didn't want to be tempted to do anything bad. Ya know, order a beer or eat something I shouldn't be eating.

Needless to say, it wasn't an exciting weekend. I prepped food for the week, completely re-organized and re-arranged my bathroom and bedroom closet. So, now I'm exhausted.

Instead of a weekend recap, you guys get some things I'm totally obsessing over as of late.

Get excited! First up on the list...

I am not sure what took me so long to find this product, but I sure am glad I did. It evens out my skin tone so perfectly, and I usually don't even need concealer when I use it. (unless of course I have a real awful breakout) and it doesn't cake off my face when I get hot. It's really moisturizing too. And at less than $10 a pop, it's worth it!


For the longest time, I was using Tresemme brand and while it did the trick, it made the top of my hair look gray from the white powdery substance not being absorbed into my dark hair. Then, I found this stuff and you can pick what shade you want! I obviously got the one for dark hair. No white residue! And it works awesome too. Takes that oily shine right out. Go get ya some.


I know, I blogged about it last week. But I just can't help but rave about it again. I love it that much. It still amazes me that I finally found something I enjoy doing. I thought it would never happen. Finally, an exercise I don't DREAD.


Guacamole
If you told me a year ago that I'd eventually learn to like guac, I'd laugh in your face. Yep, it's true. I didn't touch the stuff up until earlier this year. Now, I can't get enough! It's like I'm making up for lost time of not eating it my whole life. I've tried Meg's recipe, and I love it! And, this past week, I tried Katie's recipe and it was pretty bomb too.


Shellac Manis
Manicures are the way I treat myself. I always feel better when my nails are done. I love treating myself, but I always splurge for the shellac. It's so awesome. No waiting for your nails to dry, and no chipping! It's craze amaze. 


I hope y'all have an amazing Monday!


Linking up with Meg, Leeann, Molly & Carly.

I need to try that dry shampoo!! I hated the white residue that the tresemme left on my hair, so I quit using it. Why didn't someone think to tint it before?? Genius.

Kristine said...

I SWEAR by that BB cream! :)

I didn't like the Treseme dry shampoo at all. I got a new one recently that's ok. I can't remember the brand though! Ill have to try the one you like!

So, I need more details on Pure Barre! I need some exercise to release all my stress but I hate exercising. Like hate it!!!!! Is it fun?! I checked out the website and it's really expensive!

I use to not like guac either and now I'm obsessed!! It's so easy to make completely fresh and it's delicious and healthy! I definitely want to try the Advocare Challenge!

On a side note: I noticed that you're going to the Blog Elevated Conference and I look forward to meeting you! :)

Heather said...

HOW could you not like guacamole?!!? You're a terrible texan. Yep, I said it.

Hi! Stopping by from Mingle Monday! I know so many people who have had good results from the Advocare 24 day challenge! Looking forward to seeing your results! Oh and I love shellac manicures! It's not worth getting a manicure unless it's shellac!

I would totally have to stay in too, I always fall to temptation. And guacamole is LIFE, I love it so so much.

Don't think Sheila will EVER learn to like guacamole. At least you learned to love it! Kudos, Amber!
