  • Recent Purchases/Rediscoveries: Apparently, it was time to replenish skincare! I took advantage of Dr. Jart+’s recent sale and picked up the Premium BB Beauty Balm in two shades, Dermaclear Micro Milk Peel, Ceramidin Cream, Cicapair Gel/Cream/Correcting, Teatreement Moisturizer, and a few masks. I also repurchased Mahalo’s Rare Indigo Beauty Balm and Good Molecules Niacinamide Serum.
  • Weekend plans: We’re supposed to close on my mother-in-law’s home today, so hopefully that goes to plan and we get keys. My mother-in-law and brother-in-law will be moving here in July! Then my parents retire here next year, LOL. I’m VERY thankful that my parents’ was purchased two years ago (rented currently) because the market is so high and competitive.
  • What’s a recent change you’ve made that has improved your life?: I’ve tried to give myself more latitude when I’ve put in the work for the day, even if it doesn’t “show.” For example, if I’ve spent 12 hours taking photos, editing photos, etc. and I can only get two or three posts up the next day (instead of four), that’s OK. I felt myself getting close to burnout territory in January of this year, so I’ve tried not to berate myself for not doing “enough” so that I can at least keep doing what I’m doing for longer rather than break down. I’ve never been able to take naps, but I’ve been getting up at 5AM for the last few months (and not falling asleep until 11pm or later), so I’ve been trying to set aside an hour to “nap” and have found that even just “resting” for an hour as helped me be more awake/active in the afternoon.
