I mean c’mon… what is everyone listening to this weekend? It’s not streaming Coachella, it’s Kendrick’s latest release “DAMN.” It was the first thing I started playing when I arrived at the office yesterday and even as I fell asleep last night, I could’ve sworn that when I woke up this morning that the album was playing as the soundtrack in my dreams. Kendrick is extraordinary and I’m convinced that there isn’t ever a time when I get tired of hearing his music. I’m excited about this album. Okay, between him and Khalid, I’m still pretty amped up on Khalid, but favorite rap album of the year so far? Kendrick, of course. What is everyone’s favorite track? Even though “HUMBLE” is a great pump up jam, I really enjoy the slow ones like “YAH,” “LOVE,” and “XXX.”
There has been a little bit of controversy surrounding this show, but it honestly does. not. matter. I’m really excited to be checking this out. It is sometimes crazy to me to think about the evolution of Netflix and how they were just a DVD mailing service to streaming and now their own programming. Other series on my list include Terrace House and 13 Reasons Why. What about all of you? Any recommendations?
Also! Big ups to Allen Stone who is having his song featured in this trailer! YES!
Favorite TV show: Big Little Lies
During my time off, I had a lot of time to try a lot of different things and a lot of time to binge on all of my favorites! Here are just a few of the things that I’m sharing with you all that I was obsessed with! This is my first time doing this too so if I’m missing a category that you want to see, just leave a comment and I’ll see if I can include it for April.
I know I can’t be the only one who fell in love with Big Little Lies. I had to renew my cable this past month and initially it did NOT include HBO. So of course we made sure to pay a little extra for HBO every month so that we could finish out the series. Plus… I just love HBO. These women are phenomenal. I never read the book, but really enjoyed the series and am crossing my fingers that we’ll get a second season out of this. I think the series did a great job of shedding a light on abusive relationships in a way that wasn’t too over the top, but very real for most.
Favorite Album: Khalid
Welp! We wrote a whole post earlier in March about what we were listening to all weekend long and it’s safe to say that we’re still listening to it. I’m so excited about Khalid’s career and even though we just got this album, I’m looking forward to more music from him.
Favorite New Product: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Sunscreen SPF 30
Thank you thank you thank you Kiehl’s for sending me this! Since I opened this up, I haven’t stopped using it and now I can’t get enough. Once you develop a relationship with a moisturizer, it can be really tough to open yourself up to something new and want to try another one. I’ve admired Kiehl’s for years, but never found a product that I would be interested in trying until this one came along. The last moisturizer I was using was a good one. The downside was that it didn’t have SPF (a problem in 2017!) and then as time went on, I started realizing some of its flaws, which is that if you use too much of it on your face, your face will just have too much oil on it. This Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream doesn’t feel that way. It’s a moisturizer that I’m also noticing works really well as a primer too.
Favorite Closet Item: Wilfred Lavaltrie Bralette
The answer is yes. You need this in every color. Any woman will tell you how uncomfortable wearing a bra can be. I hate the underwire and what I want the most is a bra that doesn’t feel like a bra. It is in fact, just a bralette! These are so pretty and delicate and perfect to wear under tees and spring sweaters. Also, if you’re someone that’s very new to lingerie, this is a fantastic gateway. Pair with your favorite pair of panties and that should do the trick!
Since the beginning of the year, it feels like nearly every weekend has been jam packed. Last weekend, we were in San Diego and next weekend we’re headed to Tahoe. Today, though, is one of those Saturdays that I get to have to myself… until we celebrate our birthday later on this evening. I’m unwinding right now on my couch with Chipotle on my left, Mango Green tea on my right, and with a soundtrack to Quadron. It’s not often that I find myself falling in love with whole albums, but when we do have one of those, we prefer to highlight them in “What We’re Listening to This Weekend.” I can listen to the entire album from start to finish and after it ends, I’ll start it back from the top. Kevin was actually the person that introduced me to Quadron and I had a chance to see her in concert when she opened for Mayer Hawthorne back in 2014. Not much music has been released since this album, but we’re okay with listening to this to hold us over for the time being. She’s also making music under the name Coco O.
