I like these kinds of posts to share as every so often I think…”Wow, this is good! I should mention it on the blog!” So here are some Winners for Winter!
I just got back from taking our pup, Chief down to Los Angeles to stay with our daughter, Alie while we take a trip (to… yay! New Zealand and Australia). I went down yesterday and came back to San Francisco today. After the holidays, the flights from SF to LA were only $45 each way (it’s a loooong drive) and fares can be four times that.
While I was in West Hollywood, I treated Alie and myself to personalized spray tans. Don’t judge…it’s summer in Australia! Longer days, too…
Have you gotten one before? Basically, I had to get almost naked while a young woman systemically sprayed me all over…(as I grimaced and apologized for the view). Whereupon she said matter of factly, “Don’t worry, I’ve seen EVERYTHING.” Noted.
#1 All custom spray tans. They use all natural products. It doesn’t look fake today as I asked for “light to medium.” This is good if you are going to have some limbs exposed on vacation. You can also use Jergen’s Natural Glow for every day for $2.49 (not as effective but no embarrassment).
If that’s not for you, check out the following though!!!
#2 Amazing Non-Stick Pans Howard brought these home (on sale from Sur La Table) and they are the best non-stick pans!! Unreal. Totally worth it.I cooked this egg over-easy with no butter or oil! The pans can go in the dishwasher, too. Read the instructions (they say not to use sprays like Pam and to use high temp oils if you want to use oil).
#3 I know lots of people are sick right now (hope you feel better soon if so). Before Christmas, I had a scratchy throat and slight stuffy nose. Then, I started drinking Emergen-C and I started feeling better right away. I also got a flu shot this year.
I drank one today after being on the airplane …and will take some with us on our trip.
#4 The British are invading! We really liked “Darkest Hour” about Churchill during the early days of World War II. It’s in movie theaters now. They really put you in his shoes.
And Victoria has the second season out now on PBS on television… You can easily binge-watch the first season to catch up.
#5. Good Earth Sweet and Spicy No Caffeine Tea Treat yourself to a nice hot cup of tea…this tastes sweet without sugar or caffeine. I like a cup in the afternoon (and I know it won’t interfere with my sleep).
# 6. While you are drinking tea and watching Victoria, get cozy in this soft robe.
It’s on sale! Plus an extra 20% off at Gap Body.I bought it in pale pink for me and in light gray for a friend’s birthday.
So there you have some favorite things! Now, I need to wrap my head around hot weather in order to pack.
If you have been to Auckland, NZ or Sydney, Australia, do you have any suggestions for me to add to my Pinterest board?
Make sure you didn’t miss…
