5 Items For An Awesome Monday

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a GREAT weekend.  I made friends (more to come on that later)!  Last night, Luke and I went to a gig at Studio Warehouse, and it made me feel really old.  Not to mention, they have some of the rudest staff members on Earth working there.  I think that’s a sign of my “old lady” coming out — I now base my experiences everywhere solely on the attitude of the staff.  Lately, most of my customer service experiences feel like this.

not really, but I like this.

Monday can be really motivating or totally crappy.  It really depends which side of the bed you get up on.  Seeing as I’m old and grumpy this morning — AND it’s dreary and freezing out (OVER it) — I would like to share five items I think would totally make starting the week so much better.

1.  This scale.  I really don’t use scales often — as they are a life ruining (not to mention, basically useless) tool, for the most part.  However, the Yay! Scale is definitely an item I can get on board with. I don’t actually think you can buy it yet, but mark your Christmas lists, my friends.

 

2.  The Arm Sleeper’s Pillow.  I totally need this.  I wake up with my arm asleep all the time.  I envy people who can sleep on their back — I cannot do this, not even after too many glasses of wine.

 

3.  Cute photos of otters doing anything, really.  Or hedgehogs.  Or Norbert – have you seen Norbert?  I can’t even.

I can be having the worst day and photos of otters and hedgehogs (or Norbert the dog) will stop me in my tracks.  #BetterThanTherapy

seriously.

eeeeeeeek.

this dog is the 8th wonder of the world. convinced.

4. Alpro Hazelnut Drink.  This is the best thing to happen to my coffee since caffeine.  It’s SO good.  I don’t really know what I was doing to my life for the last 34 years.

5.  Phwoarr Paint Concealer by Seventeen.   This covers everything.  After our late night and actually having a social life this weekend, I need all the help I can get.  Also, this stuff is super affordable.  Hopefully, if it’s not already available in North America, it will be available near you soon.  It’s ah-may-zeeng.

hide yo bags, hide yo spots.

I hope you all have a great Monday and a wonderful week ahead.  Don’t forget to stop and google the otters — just, like, do it on your phone if your office has an IT person with a case of the Mondays.

Personally, I think every office should be mandated to allow 15 minutes of looking at adorable/funny stuff on the Internet.

I’m pretty sure they do in Japan.

Or something.

I think I read that somewhere?

You’re welcome.

How do you perk yourself up on Mondays?  How was your weekend?

I would have included exercise to this list, but sometimes I need more than cardio to get over myself.

      I know! Everybody needs a Yay! Scale, right? 🙂

    Ha! I love this! I seriously need that pillow too! I will force myself to sleep “vampire” style but always end up waking up face down, legs all over the place, bedsheets on the floor. LOL! I agree with those 15 minutes, cute animals always turn my mood around 😉

      I’m getting that pillow. Every time I see an invention like that I kick myself for not having thought of it first!! I have been complaining about the arm drama for years! Cute animals make life better, and since I can’t get a pet right now, I just ogle them from Pinterest! Omg, Norbert — I shriek when I look at his IG page! LOL

    I want everything! My weekend was super busy and I was up earlier than normal for 3 days in a row. In fact, I think I may go take a nap for a little bit. Can’t wait to read about your friends!

      Naps rule! I think they should also be mandated! I met some really awesome ladies, and it was just what I needed! Hope you get some rest, Erin! 🙂

    Love love LOVE that scale. I gave up my scale a few years ago and this may be the only one I’d bring it back for ;).

    Mondays are made better by starting the day with amazing coffee and sunshine!

    Have an awesome day, Erin!!

      Thanks, Amanda! We all need that scale and congrats on giving yours up – they are totally bad news! I’m also with you on the coffee and sunshine. I get enough coffee in Scotland, just not so much of the sunshine lol. Making the best of it though – hope you have a great week ahead! 🙂

    Ha ha… I love the pic of the guy and the pillow. It’s so dorky but dorky is super hot. I have a boyfriend pillow that I put between my legs when I sleep on my side. Andrew and I have an open relationship with pillows, so this arm one might just add even more spice to our lives!

      Haha I second that. I’m all about this arm pillow, I am tired of having a dead arm in the morning and shoulder pain. I sleep with the duvet between my legs and my face suffocated into the pillow. I honestly don’t even know how I’m alive lol.

        Well, I’m glad you are! <3

    Ooo I DEFINITELY need to get my paws on some of that concealer! I’ve been in the market for some new stuff 🙂

      I am sure you can order it over in the states somehow — it’s ridiculous how amazing it is. 🙂
