It’s the last Tuesday of the month so that means it’s time for me and Lauren to give you things to add to your list! If you have a post or would like to follow the linkup, please check at the link up below. Or just leave a comment and let me know what else we should try out.
The Handmaid’s Tale
In March I told you to add The Handmaid’s Tale to your list. If you missed that, don’t worry because it’s on my list again. The show is out and holy hell it is amazing. AMAZING. It’s shot beautifully and it’s terrifying. I text my friends once a week to talk me down cause I’m bugging out. And then I listen to the Red All Over recap podcast and freak out some more.
Facetory Subscription Box
If you’re a fan of the blog on Facebook, on most Fridays, you’ll see my “Friday Night Turn Up”. It’s usually Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives and Pinterest until I fall asleep. Sometimes I switch it up and will do a facemask and Netflix. A lot of the beauty folks on Twitter talk about KBeauty (K stands for Korean) and how awesome the masks are. Of course there’s a subscription box for that. Facetory has two options, 4 masks a month, or 8 masks a month. 4 does the trick for me because I only do them once a week. And I don’t have to stand in the aisle at Ulta or Target and try to figure out which mask I’m going to want. AND the cost ($9.95/mo) is less than the cost of two masks from Sephora . Plus if there really is a mask that you like, you can always order it from their site. Facetory is something I actually use unlike the beauty boxes where’d I’d use one thing and stash the others away.
Instagram Stories of Famous People
I have Snapchat. I don’t use Snapchat. I have Instagram. I use it every other hour. Lauren was telling me how she likes the Instagram Stories more than Snapchat so I figured I’d give them a watch to see how they were any different. They aren’t really, BUT I don’t have to go to another app to look at them AND if someone goes live while I’m on Instagram, you can just watch. This comes in handy when your favorite band on Earth, Spoon, decides to go live at a concert and then the roadie takes the phone and sets it up stage left for a total of 30 minutes of show. WHAT! It was during Friday night turn up so I got to watch the whole thing and interact with 130 other people that were watching and subsequently losing their minds. It was amazing. I also like to watch Dan Levy’s (see: Schmidt’s Creek) videos. He’s currently watching The Keepers on Netflix and that might be on my list next month. Basically whoever you’re currently loving on IG, watch their stories.
I’m not sure why these are popular (again???) but I’m loving lapel pins right now. When we went on the Disney Cruise, Addy started collecting the Disney pins and I kept referring to them as pieces of flair, until I saw the Iron Man and Jack Skellington ones. Afterwards, I saw a Black Daria one on Facebook and then started getting ads in my feed for them…and I just keep buying them. It’s just a small way to show my nerd at all times. Why yes, I’m in a meeting in a cardigan…with a Jack Skellington pin.
