Review: Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

I love hand cream. I keep several tubes and jars stashed all over my apartment. Night creams, day creams, exfoliating creams, you name it. As you can imagine, my hands are really soft and to keep them that way, I always reach for creams that are rich, moisturizing and fast-absorbing. Enter Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream with White Lily Extract. Made with 100% organic Shea butter, this cream is everything I want in a hand cream.

The Happiest 5k on the Planet!

I have another one under my belt! Or should I say under my tutu? Yep, I completed The Happiest 5K on the Planet, also known as, The Color Run and I had a blast! As you may know, I recently got back into running and I ran the McCarren Park 5K in May which was both fun and terrible. But The Color Run was amazing! It really is the Happiest 5K on the Planet.

I Ran the McCarren Park 5k!

I made it through the other side! The McCarren Park 5K that is. After weeks of hard sporadic training, I ran the McCarren 5K with my bestie, Trip C, and it was both terrific and terrible! Terrific because it was over much faster than I thought it would be and terrible because it was a little disheartening to watch the pack pull so far ahead of me from the start. I knew I'd be slow but maybe not that slow. Still, my goal was to either win (bwahaha!) or finish dead last in my age category. My mission in every endeavor is to go out in a blaze of glory at either end of the spectrum, doesn't matter which. However, I neither won nor finished last. That was disappointing but all in all, it was a good day.
