It’s A Merry Life, Weekly Edition

Earlier today I discovered (probably a little late) that my favorite show, Gossip Girl, is set to begin their Sixth and FINAL Season. Yikes, my heart is literally aching. Rather than sorrowing in my misery I am opting to share some of my guilty (or not so guilty depending on how you look at it) pleasures from this past week. 

#1: - My “drug store” list started to get out of hand and the thought of having to walk to the store and carry everything home was hindering me from actually getting anywhere with it. This morning at 7AM I decided I had to do something about it. Here is how my purchase went: Free shipping because I spent more than $35, 20% off with coupon code SOAPAFF (saw it on a subway ad), manufacturer’s coupons automatically applied at checkout for additional savings, wait for it… The best part of my entire experience is that I placed my order at 7AM this morning and when I returned home this evening at 9PM there was my box waiting for me. SOLD! just found themselves a customer for life.

#2: Fitbit Ultra - Had this device for a couple weeks and finally decided to put it to the test. During the day I wear it on my bra as suggested, then in the evening I wear it on the wristband it came with. Not only does it monitor my steps, stairs, distance walked, calories burned, and activity level, but it also monitors my sleep efficiency. To my astonishment wearing it certainly makes me more aware of my activity and sleep habits. Since using it I’ve tried to hit a minimum of 10K steps a day, and try get 6 1/2 hours of sleep, a tremendous improvement from the 5 it calculated I was getting when I began using the device.

#3: Aroma Chai Latte - Not only have I found their service far better than that of Starbucks, but their Chai Latte is to die for! I’m a self proclaimed chai expert, so take my word on it!

#4: Yorganic Spicy Chicken Bowl - All natural ingredients; sprouts, mushrooms, cucumber, chicken, brown rice, and spicy sauce. Mmm mmm GOOD! 

#5: Origins - I have combination skin and find that rotating my skin care according to the seasons works best. Two weeks ago I switched over to my Fall/Winter moisturizer (Origins A Perfect World SPF 25) and my skin is loving me for it.

It’s a Merry Life Honorable Mentions:

iOS 6 - Love the programmable “Do Not Disturb” feature!

Southampton Pumpkin Ale - Just when I thought I couldn’t get enough of the Southampton Toasted Lager they throw some Pumpkin Ale my way. It was love at first taste!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - Sadly I didn’t read this in High School like most students but it sure does make a good subway read!

Kerem'in yorgunlugunun ne cokmuslukle, ne sizin dusunmek istediginiz gibi "birisini" ozlemekle, hayattan bikmis olmakla ilgisi yok. Adam durmak bilmeden calisiyor ve elinden gelenin en iyisini yapiyor, bazi karelerde durgun cikmasindan dogal ne olabilir?

Herkes kendi yoluna gitmis, yorgan gitmis kavga bitmis hala Kerem’e acinilasi platonik asik muamelesi yapmaktan bikmadi bazilari. Morali bozuksa, supheleri varsa, cani sikkinsa hayatinda olanlardan cok insanlarin inatla isine degil ozel hayatina odaklanmasiyla ilgilidir bu - ve hala daha Hanker diye tutturmak da buna kesinlikle dahil. Su dizi baslasa, yeni setten resim ve videolar gelse, Kerem’in o kocaman gulumsemesini gorsek de artik bu sacma yorumlar bitse.. Diyecegim ama kocaman kahkaha attigi resimlere bile “Ay hic icten degil Hande’yi ozlemis” yorumlari yapacak insanlar bildigim icin acilen yeni kitlelere de ulasmasini yurekten diliyorum.

Guzel adam. 🙏
