Sometime last year, I started to drink coffee on a semi-regular basis. I still don’t like coffee, but sometimes I want a hot drink and sometimes I want a different taste than tea (I still love tea more). This year, I picked up a Bialetti MokaExpress, which is a stovetop coffee brewer. I wanted to make coffee at home and save money. I love that I don’t have to buy filters for it at all, or throw away coffee pods, and that it’s rather low-maintenance. And, it’s so easy! More on the coffee adventures later – these things are supposed to be quick update items.
I’ve been wearing less foundation – applying less product and not on the lower half of my face (under the cheeks and down, along the jawline). I’ve been taking better care of my skin more consistently, and so I don’t think I need so much foundation. Also, I’ve found a concealer that I like, so I’m using concealer again, to help even out the areas that have more discoloration. I have never matched my foundation to my neck because I don’t care about doing so since I never take the makeup down to my neck; I have eczema and my neck can be quite irritable.
At the very tail end of last year, I got a new phone. It’s the LG V20. I like it, it’s a good phone… but I miss my old phone. I do love that it charges up very quickly! I mean, I don’t know that it’s really that fast, and I may just be thinking about how my old phone wasn’t really charging at the end of its life there, but the V20 will charge from 30% to 100% in about… 45 minutes? I think it’s been.
I really need a haircut.
I’m having to learn grace in the context of sharing a workspace with someone I don’t relate to and whom has a few constant habits that irritate me. So far, I’ve been a slow learner. Can anyone relate?
Well, I just wanted to quickly mention a few things lately that I’ve been doing or thinking about, especially since I didn’t post much at all last year. I don’t have a sense of how this year will go with posting on here, but you’re always welcome to join me on Instagram (link below) – it’s where I have been showing up most for the time being.
I hope you are well,
