WHAT I ACTUALLY BOUGHT TODAY
METAL SPOON STRAWS
At a recent life-changing meal at Atera, we were served cocktails with these metal straw spoons. Forget for a moment that they’re good for the environment (I always do), the mouth-feel experience heightens the enjoyment of any drink. If you’re irritated by the mealy soft straw effect of cool looking paper straws, as deeply as I, or if you want to just serve a rockstar memorable cocktail, go for these. Perfect gift for the foodie who has everything! I just bought ’em, so no one gift ’em to me.
I’ve tried Burt and his Bees’ Wax, tried Blistex Deep Renewal, Aquaphor, Jack Black Epic Moisture (which I love for my face, particularly peeling eyelids), but nothing has worked to cure cracked peeling lips, particularly around the edges. I hear this stuff is the real deal. I went for it.
HANDHELD SPIRAL SLICER
Because it’s just about time I have one, so I can make Zucchini Linguine in lieu of actual linguine. This makes zucchini noodles, etc. Perfect for cutting down on the carbs in the new year.
SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLERS
No matter how much time goes by, reliably this is the single eyelash curler that everyone raves about. On and on they go about these. So, I need to try it, see if it really is better than the Laura Mercier curler that I have (which works 100%, intense curl to my lashes). Could have found it cheaper here, I just realized.
SKINCEUTICALS HYDRATING B5 MOISTURE-ENHANCING GEL
Yes, I needed a refill. Had this been edible, I would’ve licked the bowl, that’s how good this stuff is. True love (also really crazy about their C E Ferulic, but I don’t need a refill quite yet – getting there though)!
For removing makeup, particularly waterproof mascara! I’ve tried Make Up For Ever Sens’Eyes, but it stings my eyes like an insensitive bastard. Everyone swears by this Bioderma stuff, so I’m jumping on.
* * * CAPTION THIS * * *
While I may not be an amazonian beauty (freckles anyone?), I am an unapologetic amazon prime girl (thank you free 2-day shipping on every order, and tons of movies to stream – different movies than Netflix). As I clicked my way through my must-have list, loading my cart, I couldn’t help but click on the Black Friday preview box. I near shat myself when I saw this 2-in-1 iPotty Activity Seat:
There have got to be some ripe captions for this iPoop image.
PHIL’S CAPTION: iPlop (with wipe screen)
YOUR CAPTION: ???
I guess it’s not the easiest photo to caption, then, huh? I guess I’m the only one who finds this image disturbing. Imagine, as kids if we were given a glimpse into the future, and we saw this as a possibility? Never mind. I’ll go eat worms now.
