Properly, it’s that point of yr when your own home feels boring and naked with out all of the Christmas magic. It all the time takes me a strong month to essentially get used to my common home once more as soon as the decor is gone.
We’re actually, actually hoping to have our essential ground toilet renovation performed earlier than the top of the month, because it’s been two months already with out a toilet on our essential ground.
It is a smaller ’60s house and there’s only one toilet for everybody (mother and father, children, visitors) on the principle ground, so it’s been a giant deal to be with out it for therefore lengthy.
Fortunately, we do have a tiny toilet with a bathe within the basement, nevertheless it’s very small and never in nice form (leaking from a number of locations so the ground is all the time moist), so it type of reminds us of an RV toilet from the ’70s.
It even had a damaged accordion door after we first moved in like they’ve in RVs when the lavatory is simply too small for a door to swing inward, haha.
All that to say, I’ll be very pleased to have an upstairs toilet with a bathtub, as showering in a tiny area with a wiggly 4-year-old whereas attempting to clean her hair and shave my legs on the identical time is principally a superpower that I want to quit quickly!
In any case, right here’s some issues which might be making me pleased this week whereas I wait …
1. Added this desk lamp to my front room—so cute and reasonably priced, too!
2. Have you ever heard of Frownies?! They appear loopy, however I suppose it’s an previous Hollywood secret. They’re principally little craft paper stickers on your brow (or different spot in your face) the place you are inclined to develop high-quality strains/wrinkles.
It retains these muscle groups from transferring to re-train them to sit back out and lie flat (you’ll be able to put on them in the course of the day however most individuals simply do it at night time).
I’ve all the time been the worst about scrunching up my complete brow once I’m harassed or simply plain pondering, or doing one thing passive like watching TV. Folks would all the time assume I used to be mad at them and evident throughout the room once I was actually simply pondering of their course, haha.
In any case, I’ve been utilizing them for a couple of weeks and I can already really feel my brow noticing after which stress-free once I begin to get the “fear forehead” all through the day, so it’s beginning to work already!

3. Whereas that is nonetheless my favourite “deal with myself” facial cleansing oil, (smells SO good), my sis-in-law was saying this oil cleanser is her all-time fave, so I made a decision to provide it a attempt because it’s extra of a funds choice and I actually adore it to this point!
I’ve dry pores and skin, and plenty of cleansers could make my face really feel tremendous dry and tight as soon as I rinse off, however oil cleansers assist maintain the moisture whereas taking off the make-up. And, my extra oily-prone buddies adore it too, so it’s not only for dry pores and skin!
