Links I Love Week 3

Click here to shop Snow Day in Montmartre Print

This weekend, I celebrated Henri’s Gotcha Day. It has been one year since I brought this guy home. He hasn’t left my side since. We woke up to a few inches of snow which provided a little entertainment on our daily walk. I am working on getting into a routine for the new year to continue on a health journey. Sleep, staying active, eating healthy, and drinking lots of water are all part of the plan. You will see this as a theme as you read this week’s links. There are a few bonus links if you are thinking this week is a bit longer than usual. We have a holiday on Monday making it a four-day weekend.

Grab your cup of coffee and croissant and join me for links I love.

I bought a Hatch restore clock this week. Partly to help me improve my sleep, also to help neutralize the noises in our bedroom. Henri barks at everything and anything while we fall asleep. I am hoping this noise machine will help both of us. Plus, it has a transition wake-up light for dark winters.

 Pharmacy beauty is having a big sale and I decided to try a few more items. I love their honeymoon glow. I had a reader ask about a Vitamin C serum under $50 so I purchased this one from Pharmacy along with their eye cream. I will report back!

  1. Just wanted to say thanks for the tip about the glasses at Nordstrom. We have bought 2 sets so far and they are great. The bonus was the fact that they are tempered glass and so tougher than usual. Thanks again and hope you and Henri stay warm(used to live in Chicago so been there done that).

    • Thank you, Dennis! I am so happy you love them! Henri and I are staying warm. He can handle the cold way better than me. 😬
