Dylan turned five on Monday. I KNOW.
We spent the weekend in Sunriver, and on his birthday we invited family over for dinner, cake, and presents.
We had a damn good run with four, but I’ve got a great feeling about the year ahead.
Stuff I Like:
I'm in the process of moving all new recommendations and reviews to a separate blog: Things I Love
Dear Daughter, by Elizabeth Little
Fun twisty offbeat mystery. I liked the bite she gave the main character.
I bought this to replace my dying Dyson and it works SO MUCH BETTER. And was SO MUCH CHEAPER. Also, automatic cord rewind! Love love love.
Real Chemistry 3-minute peel
Really and truly works, at least for my skin. No burning, face feels soft and looks more clear afterwards.
Elta MD sunscreen
First sunscreen I've used that doesn't make my face feel oily and coated and awful.
Tell The Wolves I'm Home, by Carol Rifka Brunt I guess this is what you'd call a coming of age story, but it's so unique and tender and sad and lovely. Loss, love, and the beauty of human connections.
The Hypnotist's Love Story, by Liane Moriarty I didn't love the book she's best known for, The Husband's Secret, but I really liked this one and What Alice Forgot. Her writing style reminds me of a twistier, more suspenseful Elizabeth Berg.
The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion
Funny and quirky and endearing and best of all, it's the sort of book you just can't put down.
Mary-lou Manizer Highlight/Shimmer Powder
This is basically a shimmery (not glittery!) powder that adds a really nice luminescent highlighting glow. I sweep it on the top of my cheekbones, on top of blush, and blend.
PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
MIRACLE FOOD. It's powdered peanut butter you mix with water (or add to a smoothie, or...) and it has a fraction of the fat and calories of regular peanut butter. Plus: delicious.
