Good Monday Morning,
Wow, well that went fast! Thanksgiving and Christmas, I almost forgot about writing a post for the blog! Geez.
Well, I hope that you all had a great Christmas. I did. It was a lot of WORK but we managed and got through it all even while spending time with family. Now time for the daily grind and getting back into the swing of things.
I tell you what I can't wait until my daughter drives. Yes, of course, I am terrified but it will be nice to have my mornings back and put more responsibility on her to get herself to school. I have to have her there by 7:50 a.m.! Oh, I hate it but I try to take it in because, in the end, I will miss our drives to school in the morning.
Now let's dive right into my December favorites....
The picture above is of the nightly serum I have been using for about two months now and it's called the Clarins Double Serum. Now I know it is expensive but it is so worth the price! I have noticed such a change in my face. It's bright and I don't wear any foundation. It has 21 plant extracts in it and I only use it at night. Just two small pumps and I apply the serum to my face and neck. It's glorious and the smell is magnificent.
The second love on my list is the HBO documentary about Ralph Lauren called Very Ralph. What a wonderful documentary. It was so well done and to be quite honest I should not expect anything less from the timeless man himself. If you have cable I would search for it and watch it. It is streaming for free on cable. Do watch it. You will be inspired.
Third, on my list has been a beautiful Christmas movie that I have watched over and over. It is called Borrowed Hearts. I saw this movie years ago and it just popped in my mind over the holiday season. So I did a search on my Comcast cable and found it for free! I have watched it over 10 times! It is so well written and I think that Eric McCormack and Roma Downey did a wonderful job. Search for it if you can!
Fourth on my list has been this wonderful sample that I received at the cosmetic show that I attended a few months ago. I was given a sample of Laura Mercier Rose Nourishing Oil. I have been using it everywhere! The light rose scent and nourishing oil has been heaven-sent for my heels. You are suppose to use it on your face but I have been using it all over! Forgive me but it is that good.
Fifth on my list was my very first podiatrist visit! Yes, I made an appointment with a podiatrist. I have never been to one before but I noticed something going on with my toes and I wanted to get an expert opinion. Now I do not have my results back yet but do you guys remember when my foot was swollen? I mentioned it in one of my YouTube videos. Well, it turns out that I actually broke my foot!
Can you believe that? This is an actual screenshot of my doctor's laptop and my foot. I had a fracture that most people have to have surgery on. I couldn't believe it! My doctor said that it actually healed back in place perfectly! I prayed over my foot and once I heard that I prayed silently on the inside, thanking God!
Sixth on my list have been my Ann Taylor slingbacks. I purchased these last month and have not regretted it! I hope that some of you were able to grab a pair. They are now 50% off!
It's been a great month and I am looking forward to new things this year. I have been writing in my new Day Designer about things I want to see come into fruition. I pray for wonderful things this year and new opportunities. Enjoy your Monday!
