This Fine Tuesday.

#sorrynotsorry if Tuesday aka Day-Off-Tuesday isn't your personal favourite weekday because it is definitely mine.  Life's pretty busy at the moment so this weekday off is even more sacred than usual.

It seems that the weather agreed with me today as well. 

Will you look at all that sun!

It was just magic when I went running this morning.

It it really late autumn?  Will I be able to hit the beach this weekend?

Meanwhile, at Aldi (because that's where I often find myself on a Tuesday), the predictable happened.  I went in for a box of nuggets (the ones that taste exactly like McNuggets even when you bake them in the oven)...

but got distracted by the remnants of the infamous Annual Aldi Ski Sale.  There seemed to be a lot more stock this year.  Nothing left in my size but there were things Master SSG needed like socks, thermals and a scarf.

Put June 1 into your phone, though, because cast iron cookware returns to the big A on that day. I have my eye on this saucepan in red.

Many moons ago, I said what I thought was my piece on The Ordinary which was that I did indeed find the range very ordinary on my skin.  I'm back to eat those words because I've found a couple of winners from the range.  While moisturizers from The Ordinary don't seem to blend well into my skin, the serums from the range work really well for me in conjunction with the host of dollars things that Mecca Cosmetica give me in exchange for my credit card details.  Adore Beauty has a better range of The Ordinary than Priceline so I find myself ordering from them. 

Hyaluronic Acid ($12.90 AUD for 30ml) has helped combat the dryness I've been getting with the cooler weather.  I just apply it under my usual moisturizer, eye cream and SPF each morning.  It does take a while to absorb but I can't complain too much for the price.  Granactive 5% Retinoid in Squalane ($19.80 AUD for 30ml) is my other find.  It's more effective for me than the 2% version yet is gentle on the skin, there's no sting like there is with Alpha H's Liquid Gold.  I've been applying this nightly and can see that it's going to be one of those regular repurchases for me.

If you're in the market for fleece running tights, Lulu Lemon's version have arrived as of this week - online and instore.  Features I love in the Toasty Tech Tight II ($139 AUD but worth every one of those post traumatic on-call retail therapy pennies) are the zipped pockest as well as the bonus ones in the waistband.  Colours are black, garnet and cyber which is a kind of lilac purple.

And that's it from me this fine Tuesday.

Be well and be kind.
