5 Things I’m Currently Obsessed With

March 13, 2018

Hey hey! Happy Monday to everyone. How is everyone getting through with the time change? It’s killing me. I stayed up too late on Saturday playing the new Sims Mobile (No. 2 on the list) game and ended up missing out on an hour of sleep because of the time change. I wanted to share with you guys the things I am currently obsessed with this week.

 1. Nars Smooth & Protect Primer SPF 50

I got this primer as a sample from Sephora a couple months ago and I am so happy I did. I hadn’t put it to use because I was using the Fenty Beauty By Rihanna Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer. But last week that primer ran out, and all I had left in my makeup cabinet was this sample pouch of Nars Smooth & Protect Primer SPF50.

I loved its scent and moisture. It made my face feel super hydrated like I just put some of my night cream on. I love that it has an SPF 50 to protect my face from the sun, pollution, and other environmental aggressors. My makeup lasted all day and my face felt great. Since summer is right around the corner, I may be trying a full-size version of this product. I also heard the Nars foundation works great with this, has anyone tried that foundation? Is it any good?

2. The Sims Mobile Game

I am obsessed with this game! This game is the reason why I didn’t go to sleep early the night time changed. Eddy and I both downloaded this Saturday night and spent AT LEAST a couple hours playing it.

I’m an old school Sims player. I played “Sims Town,” the original Sims, “The Sims 2″ and ‘The Urbz: Sims in the City” (on PlayStation 2). I loved playing. I got to customize my Sims, go to work, build friendships and decorate their homes. It was like playing a digital version of Barbies. I loved being in control of my Sims actions and wardrobes. Nothing has been able to give me that type of nostalgia since high school.

I tried to fill the void with “Sims Freeplay” when it came out on mobile but in my opinion it wasn’t up to par. Everything was in real time so it would take super long for your Sims to do anything. There weren’t many options and the home furniture, clothing and features took forever to be unlocked. Plus, there was no way to play with your friends. The new “Sims Mobile” game is so much better! You are able to fast forward the Sims’ actions. It doesn’t take forever to unlock the features and furniture and you can play with your friends by inviting them to your 24-hour Sim-hosted parties. I highly recommend trying this version out, it’s the closest mobile version to the PC version at the moment. Ahh the nostaglia!

3. Morning Workouts

Guys, I am trying real hard to become a morning person. At first, it was tough to go to the gym in the morning. I felt great right after my workout and then I’d get to work and be extremely tired an hour in. After doing morning workouts 4 times last week, this is what I learned about myself: 1) I need coffee (or some form of caffeine) right after my workout 2) I feel like being more productive after working out in the AM 3) working out in the morning is waaay better than having to do it after work.

Fingers crossed I can make this a habit! All tips and adivce are welcome.

4. Make It Your Own

This weekend, my friend Chloe and I found the cutest boutique thrift store in Escondido called Make It Your Own. We walked into this store and at first thought that it’d be expensive and not really for us. Well it turns out, this store is totally worth the drive to North County. Everything was curated to be super trendy, great quality and affordable. We loved the fact that it wasn’t packed and that everything was organized and in its place. We tried on the clothes we liked and both walked out with new items for our closet! I am super stoked about what I bought, including this bad ass denim jacket with a Planet Hollywood patch in the back (featured in this blog post’s picture). If you haven’t already, check out this store! I swear, you’ll find something you love.

5. Simplehuman Rectangular Liner Rim Step Trash Can

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw my video last week about my new trash can. Eddy and I decided to go look for new trash can because the one we had was done.

I feel like a good trash can is something everyone should invest in. When we moved in together, we bought a basic plastic one from Target. It was affordable at the time and got the job done. After having it for about 6 months, it became jankier, the step broke and it didn’t contain the trash smell well.

We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond last week to shop for a trash can and we both fell in love with this one. We were drawn to it because of its rose gold color and its sleekness. I’m obsessed with it! It has a compartment on the inside where you can store extra trash bags, which is awesome for small spaces like our apartment. It also came with a 10-year warranty. And how can anyone resist the rose gold color? I’m in love!

    I can totally relate to not being a morning person! I’m more of a night owl than anything else. My creativity for writing also strikes then!

    The Nars primer sounds so good. My skin is lacking in moisture lately so I think I’m gonna give it a whirl!

      Yes, it’s been tough to wake up but it feels so much better at the end of the day knowing I can just go home and relax.

      The Nars primer is bomb. Try it out.

      Morning workouts are tough but if you just get out of bed and make it to the gym, the hard part is over. Coffee helps too!

      And thank you, I loveeee my new trash can.
