Life Lately...Monday, February 04, 2013
I found the most delicious sugar cookie recipe and made a whole bunch of them. I made some tooth ones for myself and I made some RuPaul Drag Race themed ones for Elycia and I to enjoy when she came out. We were going to have a little party to celebrate the new season but I maybe had the date wrong of when it premiered and we were a week early so we obviously didn't get to watch it. Buuuut we ate the heck out of those cookies anyway. *You can find a tooth cookie cutter here.
It seems like the window bird feeder will be full for months and months and no birds will visit then all of a sudden there will be tons of visitors. Last week brought some mighty mighty braves birdies. All four cats were sitting inches away from the window staring at this guy. (Yes, I can count. Haha! There are only three in the photo above but Professor was just out of frame in the chair) It was so cute to watch them obsess over this bird!
Pentax K1000 and the new Instax Mini 8. I'm so excited to play around with both of them. I'll definitely be sharing lots of photos soon, as well as a full review of the instax mini 8 and whether or not I think it's worth upgrading from the 7s. While getting a new instant camera is fun I'm really most excited about the pentax. My current 35mm camera, the Canon T2, is really just doing everything for me. I simply line up the shot and make sure it's in focus. This year I want to really learn film. I want the pictures I take to be all my doing, and not the result of technology.
I'm still fighting off this cold. Luckily I think it's finally coming to an end. I've used more tissues this last week than I probably have in the last five years (if not longer) and I've gone through two full bags of cough drops. So gross. I am beyond ready to be healthy again!
This lengthy cold plus it getting dark so early in the evenings has lead to me taking many many bubble baths lately. It's helping me get lots of reading done plus I LOVE bubble baths! This bubble bath is currently my favorite (when I'm not using Lush), it smells so lovely.
Speaking of Lush, I got my first online order ever! I tried to order a variety of things since I already had some bath bombs left from Christmas. I tried their toothy tabs which are definitely different. It's weird to try to get used to a flavor that isn't minty but these really do make my teeth feel clean and I love the way they taste. I already told you what I thought about Lemony Flutter here and the deodorant I'm still on the fence about. It definitely smells great but using a powder deodorant is totally new to me.
Hope you all have a great Monday!
