Self Tanner vs. Jen: Volume 1

Last night I did something.  I succumbed to my sanity and tried self tanner.  Some would ask "Why?" and all I can tell you is, I blame YouTube and beauty influencers with long tanned legs. You see, it started with tan lines on my stomach. Since having kids my stomach hasn't seen the light of day, and it legit startles me every time I take a shower and have to face myself in the mirror. I figured a self tanner would help solve that problem and I set out for product reviews, DIY strategies, and tips and tricks. Which then led me to YouTube. Which then led me to Instagram. Which then led me to hashtags. Which then led me to realize Jergens is still around and hey, a newish (to me at least) product: foam!

Currently: COVID-19 Edition


CURRENTLY on my mind...

Feeling: A little bit anxious, a little bit like I need to get on the treadmill to get my butt moving, and a little overwhelmed with being cooped up in the house. We are on day 31 of quarantine/self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cooking: For lunch I'm warming up leftovers from our Easter dinner (chicken cutlets and rice). Tonight it's pasta with homemade sauce.

Drinking: Copious amounts of coffee...and wine...because we're in self-quarantine and let's face it....the only way to survive this with kids is to drink caffeine and wine. 

Eating: ALL THE THINGS. Kidding. Still munching on the the kids Easter chocolates and trying to supplement it with healthy Weight Watchers (WW) friendly eats. 

Reading: I just bought What Happens Now? by Sophia Money-Coutts. I haven't started it yet technically but I plan to this week! 

Wasting: Time! I'm such a procrastinator!!! Also spring mix lettuce. Am I the only one who buys a box and then just let's it sit in the fridge until it's rotten and time to buy a new one? Rinse and repeat.

Wishing: That the COVID-19 pandemic was over so we could get out of quarantine/self-isolation and get back to normal. Not only do I want everyone healthy and thriving but I'm not going to lie...I miss Winners and Home Sense :( 

Wearing: PJ's and comfy lounge wear. All day. Every day.

Procrastinating: Working out and cleaning the house. HELP ME!!!
