Random Wednesday Questions!

Hi everybody! I hope all your Wednesdays are going awesomely. We haven't had as many random question days recently, so I thought I'd get one started. Hope you enjoy Smiley Happy

 

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks?

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack?

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring?

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading?

6. How many languages do you know?

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession?

8. Are you a morning person or a night person?

 

Okay, let's have a go at these.

 

1. Do you prefer facial peels or clay masks? Actually, both. I love to put on a peel first to get rid of any dead skin, and then put on a mask afterwards. I feel it's more effective after you've just had a peel.

2. Do you have a drink you always order at Starbucks? If so, what?
A medium mocha with extra whipped cream.

3. What is your favorite guilty pleasure snack? Nutella, definitely *tries to ignore large jar of Nutella sitting in the cupboard a few yards away*

4. What movies are you most looking forward to this spring? Probably I'm most looking forward to The Fault in Our Stars. The book is one of my favorites, and the movie looks like it'll be great. I'm going to sob so much, though. Smiley Happy Also excited about X-Men: Days of Future Past!

5. What book(s) are you currently in the middle of reading? The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov, Paper Towns by John Green, and the second volume of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman graphic novel series.

6. How many languages do you know? English (although my command of that language does seem to slip away sometimes late at night!), pretty good Spanish, and a little bit of German.

7. Who is your current celebrity obsession? BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. Especially after just finishing the newest season of Sherlock, and now facing a long time before the new season. Smiley Sad

8. Are you a morning person or a night person? Definitely a night person. I don't like getting up.

Re: Random Wednesday Questions!

1. Peels just because they are quicker to apply and I'm lazy about treatments/ exfoliating. I like Radiant Skincare's Peel a lot, great for pores/ uneven texture!

 

2. I don't really like starbucks (not like I never go there, I'll go if someone gives me a gift card). I'm really into Intelligentsia Coffee right now (my local cafe just closed, they served Intelligentsia) so recently I've been ordering from them. My husband's boss gave him a french press so we've been using that, but I ordered Hario drippers to make drip coffee at home and work. Oh wait, you wanted to know what drink I like? I like a lot, drip coffee/ regular coffee, mocha (especially from Illy), Illy also makes a great Lavender Mint or Jasmine Vanilla latte. Newtree has homemade syrups (rose, vanilla, lavender, etc) which are great in lattes, also like their dirty chai. I used to get Blue Bottle (drip coffee, mocha) but now I'm more into the Intelligentsia I make at home. I'm a coffee **bleep** apparently.

 

3. I don't feel "guilty" about it, but cheese and crackers is probably one of my favorites (lots of different cheeses). Chips and guacamole (my husband uses Alton Brown's recipe).

 

4. I don't like Hollywood movies, terrible plots and titles. There have been movies recently that I've considered watching, but I'll wait until they come on my cable etc for free.

 

5. Books I've read before and read again...Kundalini Tantra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati and The Magdalen Manuscript by Tom Kenyon and Judi Sion. I'm a believer of reading books at home...reading on the bus etc can be too distracting. I like reading when I turn off the tv/ start winding down before bed (maybe before or after yoga/ meditation). 

 

6. English, and I understand Spanish but I don't have a lot of practice speaking it, so I'm very shy to speak it. However, I think we're going to Puerto Rico in the fall so it would be nice to brush up on it.

 

7. Not a well-known celebrity, but I'm really into Daedelus.

 

8. Have become a morning person, nice to wake up before sunrise (absorb nourishing/ loving sattvic qualities) for an ayurvedic routine....not doing every single step but rotating them in. I usually go to sleep by 9 pm!

1. clay masks or hydrating masks
