project use it up: March empties

project use it up-2

Happy Easter! Here’s what I used up in March.

March 2018 empties

  • avatara wipe out nose pore strips: first time using these and it was quite a nice experience. I picked them up at Target and definitely noticed a difference.
  • elf Ultimate Blending brush – Probably my favorite elf brush, but I had it for years and it gave up the ghost
  • Juice Beauty SPF 30 Tinted Mineral Moisturizer in Sand – One of my favorite sunscreens. It just matches my skin tone without turning orange. Currently using the un-tinted one in an effort to simplify my makeup look.
  • fresh Rose Face mask – sample from Sephora. Just a lovely mask that leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I’d be willing to buy a trial size in future.
  • Dr.Bronner’s Pure Castille Soap in Peppermint – a classic. This is a trial size because I like to rotate the scents and even the small size goes a long way.

March 2018 empties

  • Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides – My favorite collagen supplement for skin and joints, but it’s pricey and I can’t always justify the cost. I splurge when my knees are feeling particularly achy, or I want a skin boost.
  • Rainbow Light Just Once Iron-Free – The best multi I’ve tried and one I continue to purchase.
  • Jarrow Formulas Femdophilus – Probiotics for ladies. ’nuff said. I can’t say I noticed a difference, but it was on sale and I thought it worth a try.
  • Gaia Herbs Quick Defense – This is one of those products that I try to push on people. I keep a bottle on hand for colds and flu and it WORKS. It speeds up a cold like you wouldn’t believe.

March 2018 empties

  • A pen – Because every pen is a success.
  • Re-Boost decongestion spray – picked this up a few months ago and it’s come in very handy. It’s a natural product that actually works to clear things up.
  • Nature’s Bounty thrive blend – It smells strongly of clove but I like to think that it works to clean the air during cold season. At least it helped when I was stuffed up last month.

on being disconnected

My interwebs are dead. DEAD! Nearly three weeks worth of bad connections and calls to ATT… the result, I now have no access whatsoever from home and they are still unresponsive. It’s not the hardware. I can tell when it’s the hardware. It’s an internet apocalypse!

23 things

One of my assignments for Information Literacy is to participate in the 23 Things Learning 2.0 project, an activity that was first started in 2007 and sought to educate librarians and other information professionals on the use of up and coming social media and Web 2.0 technologies. At first, I was a bit put out by the assignment because these are technologies that I have long been familiar with and use on a daily basis, but then I realized that the challenge for me is not learning how to use these things, but learning how they can be applied in an instructional setting. So begins my 23 things challenge.

I will be maintaining a reflection journal on my experiences as I complete the assignment and will be indexing my entries under a “23 things” tag.
