Happy Monday ladies. We spent the entire weekend with our grandson which is always a delight. He’s turning into quite the little card shark and pummeled me at Uno multiple times. I mean he really got me bad! I need to study the rules a bit more.
Here’s what’s on my radar this week.
I’ve had a few health things brewing that we hope to get some answers for this week. Waiting for results and additional tests really takes a toll on my nerves. I’ve been meditating every morning, thinking positively and rewatching this movie. Have you seen it? It makes a credible argument for the mind-body connection which I’m a firm believer in.
I’m obsessed with this coconut oil body moisturizer. Annmarie makes a whole line of skincare products which I plan to systematically go through and find more treasures. They’re handmade in Berkeley from organic and wildcrafted ingredients with no nasty chemicals. I was sent a small sample to try and loved it so much I instantly ordered the large size and joined their program. It’s well known that what we put on our skin soaks into our system and affects our health so I’m careful with everything I use. This moisturizer smells heavenly and has a ton of healthy ingredients.
I take meticulous care of my teeth and gums. I brush and floss every morning and night plus carry floss in my purse for emergencies. My hygenist calls me a hygienists dream. Ha, I’m not sure about that but I want to keep as many of my teeth and expensive crowns as possible so I’m willing to put the time into my dental care. Sometimes even that is not enough.
The older we get the more likely it is we’ll develop pockets in our gums and I’m no different. I did some reading, asked questions and in the end, took the advice of a friend who works in the dental industry. After I brush and floss at night, I use this Waterpik and put a tablespoon of good old fashioned hydrogen peroxide in the water. I checked with my oral surgeon and he admits he does the same thing! My pockets have shrunk back down which thrills me. My husband is now a believer too because his gums have done a major turn around.
The few extra pounds I’m carrying is taking a toll on my feet. My shoes that used to be comfortable are leaving my feet fatigued the following morning. Luckily, stylish sneakers are all over the place and being worn with everything from crop pants to skirts so I’ve bought a few pairs to try.
I was hoping for a pair with espadrille soles but there was nothing in store so my hunt will continue online. These Eileen Fisher platforms have tons of cushioning. They come in several colors but I opted for silver because it will be the most versatile. They’ll be great with jeans and casual pants in all colors…we’ll see about skirts. I went up 1/2 size so I could add these Cushionology Gel Insoles.
Platform sneakers are everywhere this spring, as are snakeskin sneakers. This pair caught my eye because it combined both and also has a slightly square toe which is on-trend this spring. They come in multiple colors, but the snake is in-store only. Of course, I found tons more snakeskin sneakers online so I’m ordering a few to see which is the comfiest before I wear this outside. I really like these which combine the metallic and the snakeskin.
The most popular item on AWSL last week was these hand sanitizer wipes. No surprise there because some people are getting pretty nutty. I was shocked to find my Costo-co shelves stripped of many essentials and non-essentials. People were loading down their carts, stocking up as though we were due for a hurricane or major storm.
How are you dealing with this Coronavirus situation?
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
