There are a few things this month I’ve been into that I wanted to share here on my blog from February. So lets get started!
Favorites from Youtube – Minimalist Videos
This month, I’ve been finding and watching alot of videos on minimalism. This being my year of the purge I am still into getting rid of the clutter that I’m finding EVERYWHERE now that my eyes are open to it. The videos are really encouraging to me to keep going. One in particular is the Messy Minimalist. I relate alot to some of her observations into the mindset of decluttering. Like pushing through decision fatigue that I used to let get the best of me to press on.
Favorite February Purchase – Playstation 4
Hubby’s birthday is in Feb. and with valentines day we decided to get a group gift to ourselves of…the PlayStation 4! We also grabbed some games for the kiddo and us to play together. One of them was Until Dawn that I finished. If you know this game, it’s like playing a horror movie where you have to make choices that changes the outcome of the game. I managed to have 4 survivors at the end of the game. It’s really great and like no other game i’ve played before. I’d like to try to find other games like it. Here is a trailer to Until Dawn the game.
Favorite Household Purchase – Black and Decker Vacuum
Okay, this was sorta always on my list, but completely impulse when they were on sale at Kohls recently AND going there with a 30% off coupon brought it down to $24! So far I LOVE it for cleaning small areas like steps, and corners of rooms where dust and such collect without having to lug out the large vacuum everytime. This helps with the maintenance of the house during the week without too much effort. Highly recommend a hand held vacuum! Here is the one I purchased.
Favorite Song of the Month – Peking Duk “Say My Name”
I heard the song before I saw the video so feel free to close your eyes listening to it if the video is distracting XD!
I tried for a few minutes here to write why I like this song. I can’t explain it..the vibe, the beat, the changes of styles. This is such a song to dance too in the beginning part. Enjoy!
Favorite Impulse Buy – White Barn “Fresh Cut Lilacs” Candle from Bath and Body Works
Kiddo and I were walking around a mall we never been to while the hubby was upgrading his phone. We happen to go into a Bath and Body Works, and I saw this candle and to me it smelled more like real lilacs than ANY other lilac candle I ever smelled. I ‘thought’ it was $24 which for my budget is pretty pricey for ‘just a candle’ so I walked away and did’nt get it. The very next morning, I got an email from Bath and Body Works, and wouldn’t you know ‘my’ candle was front and center in that email and it said they were 50% off for limited time. $12 bucks for a 3 wick candle? Needless to say, I was there when it opened, got myself one. I’d love to see if they have this scent in a diffuser for work. I have a Yankee Candle Lilac diffuser now in my office which is very ‘perfum-y’ compared to White Barn candle. I can’t burn them in my office so must find a diffuser.
That’s all for this month! Reflect on your month…what have you been enjoying?
