Best of January

Blog

Caroline Hirons! Did the best post for the first day of the year. She’s got some excellent ideas about what to leave in 2017, including very sound arguments. Go read!

Especially love how while she’s not cruelty-free, she still argues pro-cruelty free. 💕

Makeup

E.l.f. smudge brush. I bought three E.l.f. brushes: concealer brush, blending brush and smudge brush (the one with the white handle, obviously). While I am happy with the purchase overall, I’m less than convinced that the concealer brush and blending brush are as good as it gets. There could well be better ones out there. (Cheaper? Probably not.) The smudge brush though, so pleased with its performance!

Skincare

I’ve tried a few different foot feeling masks now, my favorite so far is this one:

Sunday mask! Little something for the feet.

A post shared by @ lisaanniesette on

I shall tell you why: feet peel quicker than with other masks I’ve tried, deeper peel and rather than peeling a bit at a time for days and days, more skin peeled off at the same time, for about three days and then it was done. You just have to appreciate that.

If you haven’t tried foot peeling masks yet you need to get to it! Foot cream and files is all good and well, but this stuff! Makes so much more of a difference.

Podcasts

PMS-podden. Still! Had to run to the library to get their book too. I wish you could all read it.

TV show

First Dates. Currently my favorite game! (It is a game right? You watch and try to guess who will want a second date and who won’t, yes?) Who knew people could be so fascinating?!

Ack Värmland. Because Mia Skäringer is genius?

YouTube

Jenny Mustard! When I saw the title of this video my instant thought was “Nooo..not her too!? I thought she was all for the body positivity?? I cannot take another ‘I’m going to get fit’ resolution, just can’t.

Spoiler: not what this video is about at all. Watch it! If you’re as bored as me with the getting fit and going on a diet bullshit you’ll like it, promise!

Twitter

Found new account!

No idea why I didn’t stumble on it sooner?! I’ve missed so much!

And in case you forgot I have a one track mind, this guy alone is a reason to be on Twitter:

Instagram

Added about a zillion new vegan accounts to my feed. Here is one:

Here is another:

Third one:

Music

XCERTS released a new album. And it’s brilliant. Current fave track off of the record:

Little Jinder feat. Lykke Li; Hålla handenAnother new release that’s just brilliant.

Pvris; Are You Ten Years Ago. Have not been this taken with a song in a while. It’s a repeater!

Har du PMS, eller? by Charlie Michaelsen and Jenny Öhrn Segolsson. 💕

Monthly menstrual report

WHY AM I BLEEDING ON DAY 31 YOU BASTARD???? Ruining my stats! Also, when and why has first day of period turned into PMS x 10???

Yeayea. Mustn’t complain. I was far less exhausted during this cycle than the one before. I wonder why that is. Magnesium? Stretching? Zinc?

Apparently zinc is more important than I thought/knew. I was just taking it just in case, because there are studies saying there’s a connection between zinc deficit/becoming vegetarian at a young age and PCO.

Not that I’ve kept track, but I seem to recall the introduction of zinc supplements coinciding with the return of semi-regular cycles.

But more than anything I’m a big believer in magnesium. Emphasis on believer.

Yeayea, I’m probably peeing it all out, but one shouldn’t underestimate the effect of placebo. I’ll take anything I can get.
