Currently Spring

I am a huge fan of posts where people talk about their current favorites. It’s truthfully how I find some of my favorite things. So today I am sharing my currently spring favorites with you guys!

Currently Spring

Beauty: I was sent the new It Cosmetics Confidence In An Eye Cream and you guys it’s amazing. It’s my new favorite beauty product for sure. I have actually noticed a huge difference in my tired under eyes. I have been wanting to try neulash for a long time and I finally broke down and got some and I will have to give you guys an update once I try it for a while. I also got a gift of some La Mer moisturizing gel cream and I have been using it a few times a week when my skin is feeling a little more dry. It’s really helping keep my face feeling good.

Fashion: I am pretty much living in workout clothes right now between taking care of the baby and actually working out! So my favorite thing is some new Nikes I got.  I have also been loving these Champion athletic shorts. I live in them.

Podcasts: Anyone else listening to Missing Richard Simmons? I am obsessed. Go download it now!

Books: After a reader suggested I check out Kelly Rimmer, I downloaded two of her books. So far I have read one but I am excited to read another. Check out Me Without You! If you have any other book suggestions please let me know!

TV: Big Little Lies! I look forward to it more than anything else on TV. Every Monday morning once Liam is down for a nap, I have my coffee and watch Big Little Lies. I have also been watching a stupid amount of the Kardashians. I really don’t know why.

Food: Slow cooker BBQ chicken! We use a sugar free BBQ sauce and I make it every single week. I use the leftovers for lunch for a few days and it’s the best! Tastes amazing and very very low calorie, fat, and sugar!

Random: I joined Weight Watchers after I had Liam. So far I am down nearly 12 lbs! I will be dedicating an entire post to my experience, but I really like it. I don’t feel deprived and I really like having a goal. I also have been trying out Collagen. I read about it on one of my favorite blogs, Peanut Butter Fingers and I knew I wanted to give it a chance. I mix it into my coffee and smoothies. Again I will give an update after I have been using it for a while. Supposedly I will see lots of benefits. Here’s to hoping!

I would love to know what currently spring items you are loving?

  1. I’ve been living in workout clothes too – though it’s ironic because I really don’t exercise at all! I love how comfortable the fabrics are, though, hehe. And I’m going to get started on Little Big Lies after I catch up with Riverdale!

    I bought a sample of collagen after seeing it all over the blog world but stuffed it into my cabinet and forgot all about it. I’m going to add it to my next cup of coffee! I love these posts too 🙂

  3. I’m a winter fan. Too many hot flashes for any other season. Spring is when the weather gets warmer, more humid, and when my family gets allergies. Not my favorite things.

    Hi Neely! Newish mom here too (16 months now), and the athleisure wear is right on! I think it’s great that you have goals and I definitely struggled with the damaging body aspect during my difficult pregnant, but there are some fabulous Instagram accounts (@takebackpostpartum for one) that really helped me realize what an amazing thing my body had done, and also how it took 10 months to do it, so I couldn’t expect it to bounce back right away. It also addresses physical, mental, and emotional health which I needed. Anyway, I just wanted to share from a fellow Mama and sorry for the novel!!

  8. I listened to the entire Missing Richard Simmons podcast in 2 days! I really liked it…until the end, which I thought was kind of a disappointment. What did you think?

    I love my morning coffee. I too would like to know what is going on with Richard Simmons. He was in my area years ago, in the mall. He had everyone come up and do some dance exercises with him. Great fun:-)

    I’m going to have to start looking into podcasts for some of the long drives. I’ll have to check out Missing Richard Simmons. It’s pretty strange that he disappeared so suddenly.

  14. I just started watching Big Little Lies. It is so so good! Reese’s acting reminds me a lot of her acting in Election.

    How ironic that I just quit Weight Watchers as you started it! I do genuinely believe in the program. And when I was doing it with fidelity, I was successful. I just feel sad that I live in a place that doesn’t have multiple meeting options!

  20. I like reading posts like this as it gives me an insight into the person. I have ‘Me without you’ but haven’t started it yet. We are going on a cruise next month so was saving it for that. Have a beautiful week and I’m stopping by through the Blog Share Learn FB group.

  24. Yay for Spring! I love the weather and my capris, which are a tad longer on me than most ladies because of my height.
