Since we are in FULL quarantine season right now, I thought it would be prime time to highlight some new products I’ve recently discovered that make this month’s list of MUST haves – QUARANTINE EDITION!!!!!
Ever wonder what it’s like being a law student and working full time? Check out my Youtube Channel to see a day in the life!
- Generation Clay Mask
You guys – this thing is GOLD. Law school has been breaking me out like crazy, and I’ve sampled almost every mask under the sun. I got this one in my monthly Ipsy Bag, and it has passed the test, I will be buying it again!
I use this once a week when I do my full blown self care night. I apply the mask using a brush, and then I let it dry for fifteen minutes (you can feel it work its magic!) and then I rinse it off using an exfoliating brush. Follow up with your moisturizer of choice and you’re good to go!
- FOR LIFE
Since I’ve had plenty of time to start a new show during this quarantine, I decided to start “For Life.” All the episodes are on demand and the show is so good! The show is inspired on a true story about a prison inmate that obtains his law license to get himself out of prison. Although the show adds a lot of fictional details and a fictional plot, it is inspired by a real guy, which makes the show that much better. He now practices law as a licensed attorney in the same courtroom that he was once sentenced in.
There’s only a few episodes out so binge them all, you’ll love this!
- Rosé Big Sipper Wine
With word (for a quick minute) that liquor stores would potentially be shutting down, I obviously ran over there to stock up for spending the next fourteen days locked inside my house! To my surprise, they were having a sale, buy six bottles of wine, qualify for a discount off your total purchase. Obviously – challenge was accepted, and I picked six bottles out. I came across this rosé wine, and saw it was UNDER FIVE DOLLARS for the whole bottle. Quite frankly, I didn’t care if it tasted like straight dirt, I was definitely buying it.
I totally lucked out, and — the wine is freaking great! At 12.5%, I didn’t have to down the whole bottle, and it had a great strawberry/raspberry taste, and have I freakin’ mentioned the bottle was literally $4.85? Yup – sign me up, will be buying again.
- Nespresso Caramel Cookie Pods
I get a lot of questions about my Nespresso Coffee Machine, and I’m planning on doing an entire post dedicated to that, but until then, these new pods I tried in light of the Corona Quarantine are making the list for this month’s must haves. Sometimes I find the Nespresso pods to be a tad….bitter. These ones aren’t, and they have a caramel undertone. They’re also the perfect size, 7.77 ml, so you can add just creamer and enjoy your cup of coffee, or throw in some steamed milk, and enjoy a full cafe au lait!
- Half Batch of Chocolate Chip Muffins
All this time in quarantine has finally blessed me with extra time to try out recipes I’ve been dying to taste test. Because I bake pretty often, I was on the hunt for a small-sized, half portioned muffin recipe. I find that sometimes when I cut the recipe in half myself, the cookies or muffins just don’t come out as good. Maybe I’m really bad at math? REGARDLESS – I found this perfect half recipe of chocolate chip muffins that would be perfect to whip up if you only have a little amount of flour left in the bag (like me – and again, not trying to enter a grocery store in the near future), or you want to bake something quick and fresh to bring to your coworkers for a birthday, or perhaps your boyfriend loves fresh baked treats every few days. This is the recipe I used:
1 cup flour
¼ cup sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten
Chocolate chips to taste
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes!
- Organic Pomegranate White Tea
BEST TEA! I drink this tea every single morning when I’m doing homework (before my coffee at work) and writing my to-do list. It tastes fruity, but not overwhelmingly fruity. It’s my go-to tea. Some teas you have to be in the mood for — this isn’t one. I’m always in the mood for it. Not to mention it’s probably $3.00 at Trader Joes (and organic!)
Comment your quarantine product and recipe discoveries below!! Something tells me I’m going to be working and law schooling from home for a while, so I’ll have plenty of time to try them out!
