1. A Sweet Surprise
‘Twas a good week at work. On Thursday my manager called me into his office to go over my annual performance review, and I was totally expecting my #% annual raise, however to my surprise he informed me that I have been promoted. EXCUSE-MOI?!?!? Now even though I do all my work and meet my deadlines, I have to admit my promotion came as a complete shock since I wasn’t even thinking about it nor was I expecting it. It’s a good feeling to receive this kind of recognition from an employer, it just gives you that extra drive to work harder and smarter. I guess sometimes good things happen when you least expect it and this is one of the best things that has happened to me in a while so I was really pleased. Now I have an excuse to go shopping so I can buy myself a “real” pressie… I think this calls for a designer handbag!
2. Coconut Body Butter @ Trader Joe’s
This past week I picked up Coconut Body Butter from Trader Joe’s, it’s a product one of my favorite food bloggers, Jessica (HowSweetItIs), has raved about. To begin with, this stuff looks like frosting, right? And it smells like coconut butter frosting, I’m so NOT kidding. I literally wanted to taste my arm after applying this stuff, okay okay I actually tasted my arm, don’t do that though, it doesn’t taste good, but it smells divine. The TJ body butter is so incredibly moisturizing, apply immediately after a shower. So luscious and thick! ~ $5 @ Trader Joe’s
3. Dark Chocolate 73% Cacao w/Almonds USDA @ Trader Joe’s
Speaking of Trader Joe’s, I had the opportunity to try out 2 new dark chocolate bars from TJs. I really enjoyed this bar of dark chocolate with almonds, it is not super sweet, and tastes healthier than most chocolates. Not to mention this chocolate bar is USDA Organic. Good stuff. ~ $2 @ Trader Joe’s
Dark Chocolate Bar Coconut Caramel – Although this sounds delicious, it was too sweet for my taste palette, and I really missed the nuts in my chocolate. Caramel in a chocolate bar without any sea salt doesn’t quite do it for me, way too much sugar. ~ $2 @ Trader Joe’s
