After my brief hiatus, I’m back for a quick hello before I’m away for the holiday weekend.
My first thrill this week was a fabulous girls night with my girlfriends Alex and Megan earlier this week. Alex was selected to have a mini pampering session at Aveda and graciously invited us to tag along. There aren’t any photos from the event because between sips of champagne, hand soaks and facials my phone wasn’t the first thing on my mind but we had a blast. I was excited because although I’ve gone to an Aveda salon for the past few years, I haven’t had the opportunity to try a lot of their products other than haircare and the occasional lotion. Two products in particular that I am LOVING. First, the Stress-fix spray (similar here). I’m always a little leery of “stress relief” products because I imagine someone having a panic attack and practically huffing the scent- which leads to a whole other stressor, however I digress. This scent just reminds me of what an Aveda salon or store smells like and is truly calming. I spritzed a tiny spray on my pillow and bedding which makes falling into bed after a long day even better. The second item I love is the Green Science Firming Eye Creme. I swear in the few times I’ve used it, the skin around my eyes already feels firmer. Just use a tiny bit around the eyes and even better, it’s safe to use on your lids. Hey, nothing like a little wrinkle prevention right?

The second thrill is Bottlehouse Brewery right in Cleveland Heights. In this article by Cleveland Scene, it reveals that the brewery not only brews it’s own beer but also it’s own mead. Mead is made from water, yeast and honey and can range from 5-30% alcohol. Whoa. I, myself, am not a beer person but mead boasts different flavors (some sweet and fruity) depending on how it’s made. I can’t wait to check this place out ASAP.
Finally, I saw this article a few days ago and had to share. 50 Photos of Actors Behind the Scenes That Will Change How You See Their Movies Forever. I love this because even when I was little I used to wonder what it used to be like for actors when the cameras stopped rolling. These photos capture some awesome moments on set that we have never seen- until now.
I hope everyone enjoys the Fourth tomorrow!!
