Happy Friday and Easter weekend. We’re going to a little neighborhood Easter egg hunt and I can’t wait to see Marin’s reaction. In other news I finally found the last few things to “finish” our living room so that will be on the blog next week, yay. Also, I think I forgot to share that we got a hot tub. Honestly it feels like a necessity for winter/spring survival in Vermont. It doesn’t arrive for a few months but, worth the wait. Everyone warned me that April in Vermont would be rough (aka mud season). They weren’t joking, and then seeing almost everyone I know go somewhere warm on spring break, yeah I’ve been in a funk. But today is sunny so I’m going to walk to pick up Marin from school and stop for ice cream on the way home. Yay for ruining dinner and sugar highs, haha. Happy weekend!

I’ve been doing some self-tanner testing for a blog post and my two old faves are still on top. Isle of Paradise tanning drops (for face – mix with serum or moisturizer) and self-tanning mouse (use a tanning mitt to apply and it’s foolproof!).

I’m a sucker for anything embroidered and this white button down blouse is so pretty.
Hey locals, if you love Cisco Brewers on Nantucket, get excited because they have a new location in New Bedford, my husband and I can’t wait to visit! (Caylin)
As climate fears mount, some are relocating within the US.
New product alert! This resurfacing body scrub from Follain is SO good. It’s creamy and nourishing while also excellent at exfoliating the skin. I used it before self tanning and it was amazing at getting rid of rough skin patches. 10/10 recommend! (Jess)
Just in case you need a little help socializing these days…

Fun podcast rec: I just started listening to the SmartLess podcast and I love the trio of Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes. They’re hilarious, have great guests, and seem like real friends, which always ups my enjoyment of any co-hosted podcast. (Caylin)
After twenty-five years Bitch Media is shutting down, what’s left to take its place?
I love Indie Lee products and I really like the new Retinol Alterative Cream. My dry skin is very happy with it and I particularly notice how good my skin looks in the morning when I apply it at night. (Jess)
