First – do you want to do a guest post for my blog?? I’m going to be going to Montreal for about a week for a conference the last week of this month. Since I’ll be busy
kicking ass and taking names networking, presenting research, and attending presentations, I could use a little help over here on the old bloggy! Email me @ aking1231 [at] gmail [dot] com
Now that I’ve gotten that outta the way – I’ve gotten so much fun stuff in the mail lately! Don’t you just love coming home and having a package!? It’s the best!
First, I got this super cute car magnet from Tiffany who blogs over @ simplyshaka (technically the card was from Tiffany AND Lincoln, her adorable dog ). If you haven’t yet – check her blog out!
Here’s Tyson being confused by me photographing the magnet (on my fridge – it’s dark out so I couldn’t do it on the car)
So far I’ve only used the Jason Hand & Body Therapy Lotion, so I’ll let you know about the others as I use them.
**Note: As always, I will give my full and honest opinion of the products I review**
I really liked the lotion. Although it says “Lavender” clear as day on the front, I really don’t think it smells like lavender….it kind of smells like nothing, which is fine by me because I don’t like really strong scented lotions. The lotion is a “medium” texture on a scale from runny –-> thick. It’s definitely not runny, but it’s not the thickest of lotions, either. It dries quickly and does a good job of keeping my skin feeling hydrated (which is hard to do in the Arizona desert air!). I probably only feel the need to reapply a couple of times a day.
Texture/Consistency: Medium Thickness
Dry Time: Quick
Number of Applications Per Day: 2-3
Overall Rating (1-10): 7.5
I think this lotion is well above average (assuming “average” is 5), but although good, it’s not quite perfect. I’m kind of a connoisseur of lotion (again – I live in a desert!), so I know what I’m talking about!
And Chris and I used a Groupon today for lunch to go try out a new to us called Create. I loved the feel of the place – it was so funky and had such personality. And I LOVE the matchy-but-not-matchy thing they had going on with practically everything at the place (e.g., they had mismatching tables & chairs, chandeliers, benches, etc.)
but the best part was the FOOD! I had a chicken gyro with sweet potato fries.
It was AMAZING! The gyro wasn’t super authentic, but it tasted delicious. And the fries were slap-yo-momma good. Yes. That good.
I spent the rest of the day working & I need to get back to it now! Our scheming plans to go away for a long weekend means I need to get some stuff taken care of now!
