Spring Break & Product Chat

Phew! I just finished a midterm, turned in two essays, and presented a group project. Spring semester really hit the ground running in 2017, and this feels like the first time I’ve stopped to catch my breath. It’s nice to be productive, but it was getting to be a little stressful. I’m embracing spring break this year and happily starting it off with dinner, drinks, and a party for St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow!


For St. Paddy’s Day, I picked up a Kandee Johnson x Sinful Colors nail polish in the shade Mermaid Tail. It’s such a gorgeous, deep green, and I couldn’t resist it when I finally saw it in person. It will match well with the green Game of Thrones t-shirt I ordered back in February, and my Lucky Shamrock votives from Yankee Candle. I dug a couple of them up from my stash from last spring, and I think I’m going to dice one up to put into my wax melters today.



Something I’ve been working through lately is a box of assorted teas I received on Valentine’s Day. There is never a bad time for tea, in my opinion! There are some great stand-out flavors in this box. It came from Taylors of Harrogate and I must recommend it to anyone that enjoys tea or is curious about it.


The green & jasmine tea is so unique and every gulp makes me feel great about what I’m putting into my body. I don’t always feel that way about my calorie-and-sugar-packed lattes. Of course I’m a sucker for peppermint during winter, so that tea has been a favorite as well. I’m going to love having this box around during spring this year.



I’ve also been using Lush products for most of my showers and baths lately. Now this one is strange for me, because I’m clearly a Bath & Body Works junkie! I wanted to switch things up, though, and I’ve had some Lush products in my collection that I’d been neglecting for a few months. The bar soaps are great because they aren’t terribly drying like some other more common brands tend to be on my skin. The scents are nice, and overall I’m happy that I finally gave Lush a solid shot.


What are some products you have been loving so far this year? Any favorite teas, polishes, or body care items? Lush recommendations, perhaps? 🙂
