Fun Stuff

Thursday afternoon may just be one of my favorite times of the week. I love the anticipation for Friday and then the weekend, and everyone seems to be in a better mood than say, Monday morning!

Before I launch into my afternoon post, I did want to announce that the winner of the Lemon Honey Crème giveaway is Lara. Lara please email me with your address so that I can have your lemon honey crème sent!

I am hoping to have another fun giveaway coming up next week, so stay tuned.

Things I am loving this week:


A little bit about Ecolissa: launched Sept. 1st 2010. Ecolissa carries only fashionable eco friendly and vegan women’s clothing and accessories. We specialize in dresses and easy to wear separates.

I need this dress for my AIWF Boston scholarship dinner. And luckily, Melissa from Ecolissa is offering me and you 20% off Ecolissa merchandise. Just plug in the code eco20. The code won’t expire, so be sure to keep it in mind as you gear up for summer!


I also need to give some love to my favorite beauty product, regular old Vaseline:

I use it as a lip balm, mascara, eye brow tamer, moisturizer, and even for the cats as hairball prevention. Breaking in new spring shoes? Vaseline is an amazing blister preventer as well! I have thought “I love Vaseline” about 20 times this week, so I thought I would share.


Yogi Bedtime Tea

Part of my birthday Whole Foods trip purchases, this Yogi Bedtime Tea is a delightful way to end the day. It has a natural, sweet taste from cinnamon and cardamom, and I really feel like it makes me sleepier and more relaxed. I am the worst sleeper ever, as I may have mentioned in the past, so this is a pretty excellent discovery.

Planeta Cerasuolo di Vittoria Nero d’Avola/Frappato blend

I have written about this wine before, but I opened another bottle last night and remembered how much I love it. It is full of gorgeous ripe raspberry flavors and has a lovely violet/red color. It is hearty enough for dinner, a veggie tomato sauce was had last night, but it has fresh, fruit flavors that would make it a great summer red as well. Love.

This week I am also loving the new strength training workout I developed to do three days a week. I am due for a Spring Health Challenge update soon, and I will share it then if anyone is interested.

What are you loving this week? Any products/services etc. that you want to rave about?

    That wine bottle is so pretty! I am definitely loving that it is Thursday. I always get happier toward the end of the week too.

    The dress is beautiful. How do you use Vaseline as mascara?!


    1. traveleatlove’s avatar

      I just rub a tiny bit on my finger and apply it like mascara. It makes my lashes stand out without making them look too dark. I started doing it years and years and years ago. I think because I wasn’t allowed real mascara!

      I’ve been using celestial seasonings sleepytime extra…but I want to try the Yogi brand. And I love all of your vaseline uses! :)

      I’ve tried that dress on (pays off being friends with Melissa ;) ). It’s super cute!!!


    5. alicia’s avatar

      That dress is very YOU. I dig.
      I am a vaseline fanatic as well…my lips get super dry and vaseline is the only thing that helps.
      I am also loving my mrs. meyers lemon verbena dish soap – I am trying to switch to more eco-friendly cleaning products and have been happily surprised by a few…. :)
