Home & Home Décor
Orange Circle Studio 2019 Magnetic Monthly Calendar Pad – Every year I purchase a new magnetic calendar that I can place on the side of my refrigerator. This is the second year in a row I am using this brand and I really love it. I wanted something that was small enough not to take up the entire side of the refrigerator but also roomy enough to write appointments and reminders on.
Clothing & Accessories
Baleaf Women’s High Waist Yoga Pants Inner Pocket Non-See-Through Fabric – I never or very rarely will wear leggings or yoga pants but when Blair Lamb spoke about these in one of her favorites YouTube vlogs, I figured I would give them a try. I’m so glad I did because these are by far the most comfortable pants I have tried, and I really love the way they feel and fit. If you are looking for something comfortable to wear daily or for working out, I would try these. They do come in a variety of styles, sizes and colors.
Bath & Beauty
Formula Ten O Six Three Times Sublime Facial Masks, 3.4 Fluid Ounce – I received a sample size of this product in a beauty subscription box some time ago. I didn’t try it right away but a few months ago I was having some issues with clogged pores and decided to give it a try. I have to say I was very impressed with it. I had never heard of the brand or any of their products, but I quickly purchased a full size and have been using it at least 2 times a week. It cleared up my clogged pores only after a few uses and I was pleasantly surprised about how well it worked for me. Although this product is grapefruit scented, I had no issues with it. You can use this as a wash, mask or exfoliant.
DollyMoo – Amber Moon Aura oil roll on perfume – a couple months ago when my son’s new therapist started working with us, I immediately fell in love with whatever scent she was wearing. I almost never find a scent that I can tolerate and this one was so different. I had to ask her what it was, because I needed to get it for myself. Mind you, I haven’t purchased perfume in years. She told me it was actually a perfume oil called Amber Moon that she purchased in a local shop. I explained to her that normally I can’t tolerate a lot of scents but this one was so nice. The following week, she brought me a bottle and I absolutely love it. Luckily this scent is available to order online as well. Dolly Moo carries all kinds of natural bath, body, oils and aromatherapy products. The owners and sisters, Nicci and Ami, mix and package everything by hand. If you are in the area, please check out their shop and tell them I sent you. You can also order online here DollyMoo.com.
Entertainment Books, TV & Movies
Netflix – Velvet Series – This Netflix series, set in Madrid, Spain, during the 1950s follows the, lives of Fashion House heirs and their employees. The series premiered in 2014 and has 4 seasons. Although the show is in Spanish, you don’t have to worry about brushing up on your elementary Spanish, because the show does have English subtitles. The program is basically a spin on Romeo & Juliet, with forbidden love between families. It provides a great mix of romance, comedy, drama and a fantastic sound track to go along with it. The show will at times make you laugh, cry and leave you surprised with all the plot turns and twists. My mother-in-law introduced us to the series while visiting her in Florida, and we have been hooked ever since. I absolutely love this show and introduced it to my family two years ago and they finished all the episodes in a matter of weeks. I am currently on season 4 and l will be so sad when there are no more episodes left to watch of this series. There is good news. In 2017, a new series spinoff called ” Velvet Colección,” appeared on Netflix. I’m looking forward to continuing to watch, as I can’t imagine finding another series I enjoy so much. I’m looking forward to Season 2 of “ Velvet Colección, which will make its appearance on Netflix in February or March. If you are looking for something different to watch, I highly recommend this series. Please let me know if you are already a fan or if you are going to give it a try.
So, what are you loving this month? I’d love to hear all about it.
