September is flying by and I’m super excited to share my latest “Three Things I’m Obsessed With” list. My September product review roundup features my all-time favorite skincare product, a snack that we can’t stop eating and a must-see-tv show on Netflix.
Check them out and be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.
Consider yourself warned. If you try these pistachios, buy a few bags. Or be prepared to have to make a late-night grocery store pistachio run.
My husband Paul got a bag from a friend at work who “couldn’t stop eating them” and now we are both hooked. We’ve both had pistachios before and frankly, could take or leave them. But there is something about the salt and pepper flavoring that makes these totally irresistible. I’m now ordering the larger sized bags on Amazon and portioning them out – it’s cheaper that way.
P.S. Wonderful is the name of the brand. But they actually ARE wonderful.
If I had to pick ONE product that has made the biggest difference in my skin tone and texture, it would be this magical potion. First of all, let’s chat about it’s unfortunate name. 🙂 It will NOT make you peel. I repeat. It will NOT make you peel. That was my biggest concern and the reason that I waited so long to try it. I have been using it for nearly a year and have had no irritation or overdrying. What it will do is improve the texture of your skin. It’s great for discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles and an overall smoother complexion.
WHAT IT DOES:
With glycolic, malic, and botanically derived lactic acid, the formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter complexion.
HOW TO USE:
Smooth one or two pumps on your clean skin 2-3 times a week. I like to use it before bed. I wait a couple of minutes after I apply, and then top it with my nighttime moisturizer.
What happens when a wildly successful rich white woman comedian realizes she’s had access to immeasurable opportunities throughout her life? She fesses up and makes a documentary.
Chelsea Handler’s newest Netflix documentary, Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea embarks on a personal journey to tackle some difficult topics. And let’s be real here, white privilege can be a tough subject for white people.
One of the more compelling parts of the documentary occurs during a discussion with a small group of conservative white women. During the conversation, Republican political consultant Kathy Tavoularis acknowledges and “agrees” with the existence of white privilege. She is immediately challenged by another woman in the group, so she backtracks by saying she doesn’t think that white privilege is real, but rather that Black “disprivilege” exists. WTF?
