3 Things Thursday: Week 77

pink chai livingThe theme for the last week has been “systemizing”. I already shared that we are starting to use a meal plan calendar, and I’ve been purging my house all summer, but I still feel like something is missing. Even at work I tend to duplicate a lot of things so we are focusing on creating systems, checklists, templates, and all sorts of fancy productivity hacks.  Honestly it feels a bit overwhelming trying to make all these changes in one swoop, but I’m committed to finishing before Diwali (Nov 11th).

So what are the 3 most important things I want to share with you this week?Vittsjo laptop table hack

? One: IKEA Desk Makeover
This probably could have been a blog post of it’s own, but I don’t really have  a good reveal photo so I’m sharing here. A few months ago I bought this boring laptop table from IKEA. The first thing I did was spray paint it gold, and then last week I added a fun design to the only shelf with some washi tape from Scotch. It’s much more fun to sit and work at now.NYC Expert Last Lipcolour

? Two: NYC Expert Last Lipsticks
These lipsticks are 2 for $3 at your local Walmart and the colours are beautiful. In the interest of full disclosure I have to tell you, they don’t last all day (maybe an hour without reapplication), but, sometimes that’s all you need! If you don’t wear a bold lip colour very often and just want to add something fun to your collection, this is the way to go. I think I have like 8 colours and I’ve decided that I love the darker saturated colours, but the light colours in this collection aren’t for me.lays butter chicken chips

? Three: Butter Chicken Flavoured Lays
So last week I convinced Mr. T to taste test this new flavour of potato chips. His first and only response was “no”. He was not impressed and neither was I. Guys, butter chicken + potato chips is not a winning combination3-Things-Thursday-Are you a fellow blogger? I’d love for you to join in the fun and link up to 3 Things Thursday.

    i love the idea of redundancy, be at work, home, life in general.

    i want to purchase some new fun summer color..thanks for this inexpensive brand because i hardly ever use lipsticks so this might be a good buy.

    I watched that video you posted. For some reason, I thought that flavor was wonderful, definitely wont be trying it :)
