And to go along with spoiling myself, here are some things I am truly over the moon about right now.
These new Tommie Copper Micromodal Compression Dress Socks. I cannot TELL you how excited I was to get these socks in the mail to try. I have been longing for a nice soft, lighter pair of plain black compression socks to wear with dress pants/shoes and under tights. When I work, I am standing and walking on concrete floors. My legs get tired. I wore these new socks to work on Saturday and ended up keeping them on well into the evening. Love LOVE LOVE! Tommie Copper never disappoints.
They are somewhat easier to get on that a regular, athletic compression sock, and are a nice, light, soft and luxurious fabric that looks good with a dressier shoe. And they stay up, never slipping a bit. Win, win. Check them out at the Tommie Copper website here.
I don't normally talk much about skin care or makeup here but this is something I am quite excited about. A while back I joined a Canadian group called Chick Advisor and sometimes get products to sample and review. These Garnier Skin products arrived last week and I have been using them since, and really am quite happy with them.
The Micellar Water is a makeup remover/cleanser and is quite fabulous! It easily removes every trace of makeup and doesn't need to be rinsed away. Leaves your skin soft and refreshed. Nice surprise and great price, too. The Clearly Brighter is a moisturizer with an SPF 15 and the more I use it the more I like it... took me a few days to see any difference from my regular moisturizer but I do find it makes my skin feel softer... the brightening effect? Not so sure on that front yet.
I am so pumped about this new workout series I just purchased!
This is a follow up to the Metabolic Aftershock I bought last year and have been really loving. This new one has the option of adding weights or resistance bands to the bodyweight exercises. It is a 12-week program so we are going to wait till we come back from our little Rocky Mountain getaway in March to tackle it. But I have been looking at the workouts... and WOW!
I have been thoroughly enjoying the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Bars that came in the mail a couple of weeks ago. I did a review of them for Sweat Pink that you can read here, if you like... taste great and good N.I. as well. I love the texture, too.
And I am still really loving the Premier Protein Vanilla Shakes that I was given to review through FitFluential a few weeks ago. These shakes, along with the Chocolate are available at Canadian Costco stores through the end of March.
I like to keep a few in the fridge and use them when I am in a hurry for a nutritious snack or take along on a walk or to run errands. Really tasty Vanilla flavor and great N.I. too.
And one more thing... Spring has arrived at my house! When I came home from my Saturday morning Weight Watchers meeting, there were a few vases full of daffodils here and there. Love that The Captain thought to surprise me with these cheerful blossoms! It doesn't even matter that he couldn't find the flower vases and used mason jars instead!
How are you spoiling yourself right now?
