My favorite flavors of procrastination!

Most everyone procrastinates but no one is more aware of it than those of us trying to create something–fully aware of the time we spend not creating at all. So, here are a few of the things I find myself doing when I’m supposed to be writing or editing!

  • Twitter.

  • Collecting gifs! This is a new habit of mine but I have amassed quite the collection.

  • Window shopping on Etsy.

  • Organizing my desk.

 

  • And Pinterest. Somehow, Phong got me into this habit…

And when things get real serious:

  • Cleaning.
  • Moving furniture.
  • And Netflix.

What do you do when you’re procrastinating?

Love yourself?

Over the last year I’ve taken an interest in skin care and myself.

Let me explain. I did almost nothing for my skin before I turned 29 and it was not pretty. I used sunscreen from the supermarket during the summer (I grew up in California so I should have been using it ALWAYS). And IF I had a lotion, I used it all over and it too came from a supermarket. I slept with my makeup on and showered it off in the mornings. I pretty much believed some people were born with good skin and the rest of us weren’t and it was what it was. And, I guess to enforce that, I also figured all of the products out there were just BS.

I was SO WRONG!

But the biggest thing I’ve found through the experience of trying products and taking care of my skin, even more so than the obvious results, is the way it makes me feel. I feel good about myself when I take care of myself. I feel cared for and appreciated–BY MYSELF! I didn’t know this was a thing.

So, now I’m pretty much dating myself on the side. Which is great because I’m an AMAZING girlfriend and I totally get me. I even got into ordering a monthly subscription box which I call a gift from my admirer and last week I even gave myself a surprise art pack from Etsy. I’m really close to giving myself flowers and possibly having them delivered with a card.

This has been a serious revelation.

Art pack I ordered was from MaryGomesArt and it was so worth it!

The subscription box I’m trying is GlossyBox.
