Favorite new things-February 12th

Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a good week so far! I’m having a nice one, and I’m especially looking forward to this long Valentine’s Day weekend coming up!

Firstly, I’m really excited about lease signing! Ben and I officially have an apartment for next year! After waiting for approximately 6 hours (truly, not an exaggeration), Ben signed the lease for our 1 bedroom! I will go back on Friday to put my name on the lease too, but we know the number of our unit and everything! I’m so excited to be shacking up with such an amazing person 🙂


Secondly, I finally put in an order for and received a Club W wine shipment! I first heard about it months ago, but they send out a lot of coupon codes for new customers in emails and I wanted to wait to make sure I was using the best one (because I’m hella cheap broke like that). I finally determined that the “we bought your first two bottles” code was the best deal and I got three bottles for $20! What a great deal; that’s basically what I would have paid at Trader Joe’s. Club W is a monthly subscription for people who like wine but don’t necessarily know how to pick it out and who don’t want to spend more than $13 per bottle (this describes me very well). You have to get a minimum of three per shipment, but $13 is still a very low price for what most people spend on wine (I wouldn’t know, I’m still in the $5 range), so it’s an affordable wine club. This was a special “Table for Two” pack in honor of Valentine’s Day. I’m very excited to share a bottle with Ben on Saturday, and I’ll probably write a separate post on how each bottle is.

Next up: L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Intenza. What a name for mascara! Totally silly if you ask me, but I was happy to try this new kind this morning. I got it in my Target beauty box back in December but didn’t need a new one till now. I like it a lot! The brush is unique and it did a great job of fanning out all my lashes and avoiding clumps. I’m glad I have a new kind of mascara.
