Glossies Made Me Do It: Five Things Friday

Posted July 10, 2020 by shooting in Discussion / 20 Comments

Happy Friday! We made it through another week. I haven’t done a Five Things Friday post in awhile, so I figured it was time to share some favorite finds. Today is also the second Friday of the month and therefore it’s time to link up for Glossies Made Me Do It. Therefore, I’m going to share five things that I’ve found in magazines lately that I’d like to try or learn more about!

One: Lightweight Shirt from EV1 (found in O magazine)

I saw this shirt in Oprah’s magazine O, one of my favorite magazines! It’s a lightweight shirt from EV1, which is a line from Ellen DeGeneres through Walmart. This shirt is only $21! She has a ton of other fun, affordable options too, so I definitely think I need to get something from her line very soon!

Two: Tip Off (found in Health magazine)

Tip Off are liquid-filled makeup removing swabs from alleyoop. You can get a pack of 24 swabs for $8 on their website. How awesome is this though? I know I’m not the only who has made a mistake with their makeup and wished there was an easier way to get rid of it than re-doing your whole face, etc. These would be so handy! Plus, if you’re thinking Christmas (hey, it’s Christmas in July), these would be fun Secret Santa gifts or stocking stuffers.

Three: Bibicharger (found in Real Simple magazine)

This little charger is super awesome for travel or just to throw in your bag. It has a retractable cord so you don’t have to worry about tangles! The prongs are retractable as well, so it basically folds up into a small circle. Pretty cool, huh? They have options for Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy.

Four: Bibliotherapy (learned about in Real Simple Magazine)

Bibliotherapy is exactly what it sounds like – using books as therapy! There was a whole article in Real Simple magazine about this topic, and it was so fascinating. I’d never heard of the term bibliotherapy. While it’s not meant to take the place of actual therapy for serious issues, the idea is to use novels to help with different life experiences and emotions. I feel like most bookworms do this on some level when reading a book, but I love the idea of filling out what you’re looking for/need help with and having experts curate a list of books for you to then try.

According to their website: In a consultation with one of our bibliotherapists, you’ll explore your relationship with books so far and your unique readerly identity will be sketched. You will be guided to books that can put their finger on feelings that you may often have had but perhaps never understood so clearly before; books that open new perspectives and re-enchant the world for you.

Now I just want to know – How can I become a bibliotherapist?!

Five: Aquis Rapid Dry Hair Turban (found in People magazine)

You put your hair up in this turban after you get out of the shower and it helps it dry quicker and reduce frizz. I hardly ever blow dry my hair, and I definitely deal with frizz, so this sounds like a really awesome product for me! There’s also a variety of color options, which is nice! They have other products too, so definitely worth checking out.

  3. What great finds! I am always looking for new makeup removing products, especially ones that work on eye makeup. And I love the idea of bibliotherapy. I feel like I’ve been doing that most of my life. πŸ™‚

  4. I love the idea of bibliotherapy. And I do feel like as avid readers many of us do it even if we don’t necessarily know we are sometimes lol. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve heard of bibliotherapy! I think I came across a blog post about it once. I don’t remember where. It’s an interesting idea. I’ve probably bibliotherapied myself without even realizing it. πŸ™‚
