Happy Wednesday everyone! This week is a shorter week, because I had Monday off because of Veteran’s Day. Here are some of the things that I have been loving this week:
Panera Turkey Chili:
Ever have a set of favorites when you’re eating out at a restaurant? Well, I am definitely one that is afraid to try new things once I have an established favorite. No, I am not very adventurous. Last week, I was tired of the same old chicken noodle soup. I recently began to eat chili, so I figured why not? I loved it, and I ended up eating it three days in a row. I tried it in a bread bowl too, and that was so delicious.
Alex and Ani Polishing Cloth:
This is a weird thing to love, so hear me out on this one. I had a ton of Alex and Ani that I got back when they first became popular. Over time, they turned black to the point where they no longer were wearable. I tried everything and it didn’t work. On Saturday, I was in the Paper Store buying a Mantraband with my coupon and I saw the polishing cloth in the Alex and Ani section. For $6, I figured why not? It was like magic! It removed all of the tarnish on my bracelets. They even looked like new again. So, if you have a lot of tarnished Alex and Ani, it is very much worth the investment.
Essential Oil Diffuser:
I recently got into essential oils. I tried to once, but then I lost the little pads and the plug that you put into it. I recently got one off of Prime, and I love it. I’ve been using lavender to help calm my anxiety. It’s been working, at least a little bit. My goal is to now try to plug it in as soon as I get home from work. I am also looking for new essential oils for energy as well to use in the morning, so if you have any recommendations, let me know.
Keeping up with the essential oil theme here, I have been using some of my pillow mists again as well. I have two that I use – Bath and Body Works’ Lavender one and their Love one. Depending on the day, I like to interchange them. So far, I like them.
I discovered podcasts for the first time yesterday, and I love listening to them. I have been listening to Lauren Conrad’s Asking For a Friend, and have enjoyed the first few episodes. I am also planning to listen to Rachel Hollis’ one, as well as Lisa Lampenelli’s new one. I like these because it gives me a chance to learn something, which makes me really happy.
