1. A friend of mine posted this on social media and I think it was one of the most clever things I’ve seen for the holidays in a long time! I know it’s the 9th so you’ll have to catch up if you start today!

2. OMG OGEE! Okay, normally I don’t go crazy over a makeup product but I have been searching for a lipstick like this for YEARS. Any other menopausal broads out there will understand this – my lips are not what they were 30 years ago. They aren’t even what they were 10 years ago. They’ve lost definition and they are dry as a desert (my auto-immune disease doesn’t help that.) When I saw the ad for Ogee’s Tinted Sculpted Lip Oil I thought, yeah, right. The way it went onto the beautiful model’s lips (who was NOT a menopausal broad by the way), it just glided on and looked amazing. Give me a break. But despite my skepticism I ordered three different shades and damn girlfriend if it isn’t da bomb! Seriously, give it a try!

3. John Mulaney is, in my opinion, one of the funniest comedians alive. This little bit, I believe, proves it…

4. This book by Laura Weir. (Review from Publisher’s Weekly here.) It’s obvious to those who know me why I would love it (I’m a MAJOR Anglophile – though right now things are such a mess over there, it’s more of a love-hate relationship.)

This book is obvious born from the Scandinavian movements that are currently so popular and that focus on cosiness, contentment, and happiness. Hygge, Lagom, and Fika, just to name a few. There are so many books on the subject and I’ve been reading them all!

5. This film short made me giggle…
