A Long Weekend Recap…

FullSizeRender 2

Hello Darlings!

Did everyone have a good Memorial Day? It is nice to have a longer weekend but we always need to remember why it is a Special Day. I love putting flowers on those I love and have lost. It is nice to take those moments to cherish.

Jake and I just grilled out. We bought a grill and were very excited about it because living in apartments we were not allowed to have one.

I made my favorite Jalapeno’s poppers, turkey burgers & dogs, with corn on cob! YUM YUM

I literally had 2 beers and was ready for bed!! HAHA I am getting old.

The rest of the weekend was catching up on shows and doing a few more things around the house.

It is looking like people actually live here. Most of the wall decor is up in living room as with the curtains.

We are hoping to get the rest of the rooms done soon but I have no idea what I want to do with them yet! Does this happen to anyone else?!

I am excited to start working on the outside by getting some flowers and potts. Since we are renting I want things I can take with me.

I would have posted on Monday like planned but the day of laziness got away from me.

What did you do this weekend? Do you have any renting tips?

Till the next one..

Starting a New Chapter…..

Hello Darlings!

It has been about a little over a month since my last post! I was stuck and having a serious block!

It was pure luck that Jake got a promotion in Michigan! We thought a lot about it before making the decision because it is some distance from family, friends, and well it is more expensive.

I thought a lot about what my friend Jackie would say and made a PRO/CON list. The PRO was much greater so we took the leap!

I will say it happened really fast! Like had 2 weeks to get everything packed, stored, and get our asses up here! (totally worth it)

We left Oklahoma the last week of April and got to Auburn Hills Michigan on May 5th.

We ended up at ” On the Border” and realized it was Cinco de Mayo! So of course we had to have a drink to celebrate!

Since we had little time before needing to be up here we had no place to live so we lived in an extended stay hotel for a little over two weeks.

It was a nice hotel with a kitchen where we were able to cook. It was better than having to eat out all the time. I utilized the pool and gym to try and stay up with my workouts which was really great!

I am happy to say we found a house to rent in the area and are mostly settled in. We got signed and moved in last weekend and I have been unboxing and setting everything up.

I am trying to get things set up before I start work in June ( so thankful I found a job so quickly!) and Jake is enjoying his new promotion.

I am going to get back into swing of having a post up on the normal days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) now that we are on a secure network.

Till next week!

Goodbye Blemishes & Cysts

Hand-Holding High Frequency Kit

 

Hello Darlings!

Today I am going to be talking about one of my favorite tools I use on blemishes.

In Esthetics school this was a tool we learned and used a lot! This one is not as powerful as the ones that are professional that we had in school but does just as great of a job.

The high-frequency electrotherapy uses the glass electrode tube to produce high frequency current, when used on face, achieves the treatment result.

You can literally take a before pic and by the next day already see results! I use this everyday till the problem is gone. Some take longer than others it just depends on if it is a blemish or cyst. I still always notice a difference the next day.

I literally found this on amazon as did some of my classmates haha! (We love it)

You can easily use this at your home and can buy it here just like I did. You could also ask your esthetician if they offer it. Some offer as an add on and others just a nice little service.

Hand Piece//Glass Tubes

This kit includes a few different Glass tubes that are the pieces you choose for different areas. This is great like I said for blemishes, cysts, etc.

together

 

This is super simple to use and put together. Each glass piece has a metal bar on the bottom which is what you insert into the handle. It slides in easily so no need to add a lot of pressure..Remember they are GLASS and can break easily.

The glass side is used on face or hair. Just turn the dial to intensity level wanted and run over area’s you want treated for a few seconds. (Follow on snapchat to see in action every now and again)

**DO NOT REMOVE OR ADD GLASS PIECES WHEN MACHINE IS ON**

handle

Yes the handle looks like it could be a model for other things!

 

comb tube

This comb tube is great for beards! (YES men will love this machine as well)

 

 

mushroom

This mushroom tube is my most used! I get breakouts on my jawline and neck (hormonal) usually a nasty cyst. I use this one to really cover the area and it lays flat.

 

bend

I use this one around the nose area. The shape makes it easy to get around the curves.

 

tongue

I had almost forgot this one because I really never use it. It is called the tongue tube but is NOT meant for the tongue. Use only on skin areas!

This is the easiest machine to use and I love I can use it in my home!

XOXO

Weekend Recap

flowers

Hello Darlings!

How was your weekend? Did you get things done or just relax?

I did not get as much done as I wanted due to waking up with a migraine Sunday morning. Saturday was a good day where I got some errands done and we rented a few movies.

I had a list of things I wanted to do around the house on Sunday so the migraine really put that on hold. I laid in bed all day and nothing got done.

IF you missed my post from Friday you will have no idea what I am talking about so check it out here. We opened this one over the weekend and I loved it. It would go great with a steak in my opinion. Don’t forget with my link here you can save $30!

Allergies are kicking my ass like no other this year. I have been trying to drink more hot tea than I already do plus water. I am taking some over the counter meds to help with this terrible cough I have. I made Chicken noodle soup Saturday night and have been enjoying the left overs. I don’t know why that always makes me feel a bit better but hey if it works…it works!

Bright Cellars: Monthly Wine @ Home

6

Hello Darlings!

I thought it being Friday that a Wine post was perfect! To make it even better this is about a company that sends you wine’s monthly based on your likes!

Bright Cellars is a monthly subscription that delivers four bottles of wine right to your door! This is great for those trying to find out what wines they like, new wines, or just something new in general.

First, you take a short quiz so they can better match you to wines they think you will love. Then, they will send you a list of the wines they think match you. You get a little description of each one and if you don’t think it’s for you you can swap it.

You can skip a month or cancel at anytime. When I took my quiz they surprised me with a link where I got a fifth bottle for free! Bright cellars offers points for reviews of the wines you receive plus that helps them make sure they are matching you right.

If you are a beer drinker like myself this paper was interesting. (Don’t worry in your own box you will get one that you can actually read…lighting was terrible) This is a guide to help you figure out what kind of wine you might like based on what kind of beer you like.

 

1

Based on my quiz results these where the bottles I got.

  1. Lawson’s Ridge Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon 2015: This is an Australian blend full of black cherry, blackberry, and plum aromas. On the palate you should notice black pepper, spice, and a touch of oak. This is ideally paired with barbecued or grilled meats & smoked cheese.

 

3

 

2. Leaping Lizard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014: California wine with ripe juicy raspberry, plum, and cherry flavors as well as some hints of pepper in the finish. Best paired with braised beef short ribs-also goes well with bold cheeses.

2

 

3. Mare DI Vetro Aglianico 2015: A dark sultry full bodied red wine w/ flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum and coca spice in the finish. Paired with smoked meats or hard cheeses.

4

4. Forty Winks Chenin Blanc 2015: orchard fruit flavors like yellow apples and pears balanced by tropical aromas or guava and passion fruit, also with floral notes of honeysuckle and jasmine. Paired with vegetable stir-fry or with fresh goat cheese & honey.

 

5

5. Porta D’oro Pinot Grigio 2015: Fresh light bodied Pinot from Venezie, has notes of crisp green apples, tart lemon, and ripe peach, and just a hint of soft florals & honey. Paired with light seafood pasta or a bruschetta w/ fresh mozzarella.

I am really curious to see how well a quiz can match wines to someone. I will admit when I see the notes and what it would be paired with I have high hopes but I can be tricky or picky…..how ever you choose to look at it.

If you like or love wine Bright Cellars is worth checking out. I plan to give it a few months and if i keep getting wines that are not my type haha I will pass.

I will of course keep you posted on how this goes! I’m sure in Monday’s recap there might be one review!

XOXO
