St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
I have tried other self-tanners before, but they always leave streaks or looks fake. After a recommendation, I picked up the St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse at Sephora for Maui and was blown away how awesome this worked. My skin looked bronzed as if I had spent weeks in the tropics. I did end up with a few minor streaks, but with more practice at applying it, I think I will be able to avoid them.
Caress Body Wash
I am kind of picky about the body wash I use. I usually just pick a body wash based on the scent, and I am a big fan of the Caress Passionate Spell scent.
I don’t always make the best homemade salads, but I found some flavorful toppings to add on, which really helped boost the flavor of my normally very plain salads. I used Annie’s Green Goddess dressing, which is definitely a winner.
Spinach + sauteed tofu + red pepper + hard boiled egg + avocado + homemade croutons
I tried a PROBAR a while back and don’t remember being hat impressed, but since starting at Skinny Raven, everyone has been raving about the PROBAR products, so I picked up a couple of my own. This Core protein bar was so delicious; the mint chocolate flavor was spot on. I would definitely buy this again.
Running with Friends
Now that I work part-time and often go into work later in the morning, I have time to meet up with friends for runs! This has really helped when I was feeling unmotivated to run. Joanne and I completed a run in the morning sun, so odd compared to the countless runs I used to do in the dark.
Running in General
After my bout of lacking motivation for running, I have been getting back in the groove and feeling much more excited about my daily runs. This morning I covered 10 miles in 1:24.
I had never heard of Pocket Fuel until I started working at Skinny Raven. I tried this pure caffeine energy gel and wow it gave me a burst of energy! I only took half of the packet since I can be really sensitive to caffeine. It tasted like straight espresso with only a slight vanilla flavor.
Spending Time with Craig
Our time together has been a little more limited since I occasionally have to work Saturdays—the nature of retail. So last weekend I went to Craig’s final curling tournament of the season. Craig has been curling the past two winters and last weekend he had his year-end tournament. I watched one of his games and his team ended up taking 1st place in their bracket. (He is one of the sweepers—in the ball hat.)
Simplehuman Garbage Can
Really random, I know, but I absolutely love our garbage can by Simplehuman. The best thing about it is that it does not slam down after you take your foot off the opener. Instead it slowly and quietly closes. It is so great! Our realtor actually bought it for us as a house-warming gift. It is pretty pricey at over $100, but I would definitely pay that for it.

The rest of my weekend will be spent celebrating Easter/Pascha with friends and family. If you are celebrating Easter as well, I hope you have a blessed Easter and remember that Easter is not just about the Easter bunny, candy, and colored eggs but instead the hope of eternal life. I am sure I will be enjoying a lot of delicious food including lamb and Greek pastries (We go to a Greek church.) as well as reflecting on all the things that I have to be thankful for. Like no snow this year!
