Well, this past week will be the last of my boring weeks for a while. Now for the next month or so I’m going to be extremely busy with work, and busy with parties and showers and stuff on the weekends. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I don’t have much to report this week.
GG and I decided to go out to the Hibachi restaurant for dinner last night. We haven’t done that in quite a while – I really just had a craving for the fried rice there, which is the best. (I’m going to try to make my own at home this week.) Of course, I always forget how awkward it is to go as a couple because they seat you with a table full of random people. So we were at one end of this table that was like six members of an extended family. We mostly just disregarded them. The food was very good, but there was so much of it. I actually have a container of leftover chicken and steak in the fridge right now.
Also this week, I received two face products that I’d ordered. I may do a full “review” post on them after I’ve been using them for a while, but I’ll just mention them now. The first is Hylexin, which a friend of mine was raving about, and I trust her opinion more than online reviews. It sounds like if your dark circles are due to lack of sleep or allergies, it won’t help you, but if you have genetic dark circles, people have great results. I have had dark circles under my eyes since high school, and it doesn’t matter how much sleep I get, so I am hoping that I am a good candidate. Anyway, don’t pay full price for this product, because I found it for much less by shopping around. The other item is the Pretika SonicDermabrasion Facial Brush. I’d been thinking for a while about getting a Clarisonic brush, which everyone says is fabulous, but they’re so expensive (even the less expensive, single-speed Mia model). The Pretika brush also gets great reviews and does seem comparable to the Clarisonic. I’ve been using it twice a day for the past couple days and already notice an improvement in the dry patches on my face (they are bad this winter). The brush does seem a little rough, but I heard they are testing a “gentle” brush head and I wrote to them about it, so maybe I can get one to try out.
I have the day off work tomorrow, but other sites are still open so I do have to do a bit of work. And one of my co-workers will be coming down tomorrow to spend the week, and it’s her birthday, so we are going out for dinner. And then an insane two weeks will kick off..!
