This week’s new & noteworthy almost did not happen. What a week! My day job has been so busy lately and I am finding it difficult to do everything. Yes, you have heard that before. I share this because you may feel it too in areas of your life. How am I handling it? Listening. Listening to my heart and really trying to determine what it is I want to do. I’ll save all of that for another time though, let’s get to what I have to share today!
New & Noteworthy
I have a few new things to share with you. These are the things that caught my eye and made me think you might like them too! My ears and eyes are always open when it comes to products and I found some worth sharing.
Tik Tok made me do it when it comes to the first two items. One of the make up artists I follow shared this primer. Granted she is 10 years younger than me but her results made me want to at least try it. Have you heard of this primer? I tried it on my IG last week – if you are not following me there yet, please do. I am so close to hitting my goal of 10k! I applied the primer on camera and took a before and after shot. I asked my community to let me know if they saw a difference!
My thoughts – it does make a difference. That being said, I will use it for special occasions, not daily. I’ll continue to use my Elf primer on the regular. But this primer does last 6 hours and my skin felt firmer when I used it.
Luckily some of my Tik Tok follows also share drug store finds. This lipstick from L’Oreal is a beautiful neutral shade and mimics Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk. Bonus: the packaging is so nice – it feels so high end and the lipstick itself is so fancy!
Finally, my new Teddy Black bag – you saw it yesterday. Here’s the deal, I wanted a hot pink/bright pink bag and could not find what I was looking for. Remembering I had worked with Teddy Blake in the past made me head right on over to their website. There it was – the bag of my dreams! I reached out to my contact and it was on it’s way to me in no time and they gave me a discount code for all of you! Use my code TBKELLYANN30 and you can take $30 off the bag of your choice.
All of the Teddy Blake bags are Italian leather, they feel so luxurious! The brand is all about affordable luxury and whenever I carry one of their bags I get compliments.
Although I have used this service just a few times, I believe I am now at a point where it will become a regular behavior for me – Walmart Grocery Pick Up! With both of my boys at home now, I am needing to plan ahead for meals and this seems to work well if you’re organized. I ordered the night before and picked up first thing the next morning. A few things were out of stock so I did stop at Publix on the way but overall the trip took me under 30 minutes.
If you or someone you know suffers from anxiety, try this simple grounding exercise. It works particularly well with children!
That wraps up this week’s edition of New & Noteworthy. I hope you enjoyed it. I also hope you have a fun weekend planned. It’s a long weekend for me as our school is closed on Monday. I have plans each day and I look forward to them. Today, the 17th is the anniversary of my dad’s death. I miss him every single day so I leave you with the last photo we ever took together. Who knew just a few shorts days after this photo was taken, he’d draw his last breath and my life would change forever.
If you’ve lost someone you love too, I feel you and I understand.
Thanks for stopping by today, I do appreciate it so very much!
