Fun Findings Friday #195

TGIF! So excited the weekend’s here! I found out a few weeks ago about an event coming to town featuring my favorite radio show host, Delilah! In case you’re not familiar, she’s the one with the super soothing voice who takes listener calls and offers advice. Well, the event’s tonight and I’m SO excited for it! It’s a DIY home workshop so not only do you get to do a fun DIY project, but also, Delilah! So fun! I’m all signed up for the event but did get an email saying it’s first come, first served, so hopefully there won’t be any issues getting in!

Also, absolutely CRAZY to think about, but I just hit my SIX year anniversary of blogging! It’s hard to believe I started Small Towns & City Lights that long ago (where did all the time go?!) but I’m so proud of my little corner of the internet! Thank you all (old and new followers) for your support and engagement!

Let’s dive into this week’s fun findings.

First Aid Hand Cream

My skin doesn’t do the best in cold weather (and we’ve had some serious temp drops in Florida over the last few weeks), so I’ve been using First Aid’s Ultra Repair Cream religiously. I’ve tried a lot of different brands over the years but this one really seems to be the only one to do the trick in the winter, especially on my poor knuckles, which tend to always dry and crack if I’m not vigilant with the lotion!

Google Arts & Culture App

I’ve been seeing the Google Arts & Culture app EVERYWHERE over the past week! In particular, a really cool feature that lets you take a selfie to see what museum portraits look most like you. It’s pretty comical to see some of the portraits that pop up – especially when sharing the results with friends and family!

HQ Host Gets Quizzed

Despite still not making it close to the final round – let alone winning – at a game of HQ, I’m still just as hooked on the live trivia game app. And if you are too, you’ll appreciate this video of Scotty Rogowsky (the HQ host) having the tables turned on him with having to answer trivia questions under the time crunch (HQ style)! Fortunately for him, they’re all game show related, rather than the mix of category Qs the game provides every day, but nonetheless, it’s still funny to watch!

    Thanks about that hand cream! I actually need to shop for some hand cream (dry winter skin!) and it looks great. And I have been seeing the photos/paintings but didn’t know what site they were coming from!

      You got it, girl! My hands are doing SO much better since I started using it. I’m obsessed! You’ll have to give the app a try and see what your results are!

    I love the Ultra Repair Cream. It works really well as a face cream as well. It’s really hydrating and great for dry skin. I’ll have to try it on my hands though, I’ve been dealing with really dry skin recently.

      I haven’t tried it on my face yet but that’s good to know! Dry skin is the absolute worst! I like cooler weather but wouldn’t mind if it heated up a few more degrees, haha.

      Me too! I can’t wait to check out more of their products!

    I also played around with the Google Arts & Culture app.

      So fun isn’t it?! What’d you think of your results?

    The Google Arts & Culture app self-portraits had me cracking up all week!

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:18 AM

      Same! I’ve loved seeing all of the celeb ones too!

    First aid beauty is one of my favorite skincare brands! I have yet to try their hand cream but will add this to my shopping list. Thanks for sharing :)

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:19 AM

      You got it! What are some of your other fave products of theirs? I need to try more out!

    Oh my gosh… when I got my first radio for my room in the 4th grade, I’d listen to Delilah every night before bed haha! That’s awesome!

    • January 21, 2018 / 2:14 PM

      She’s the best isn’t she?! Haha. I can’t believe she’s been doing her show for so long (I think she said she started it in the late 80s)!

      Doesn’t it?! I think it’s an awesome way to get more art in front of people too!

    How cool is this google app! I love artsy apps like that!

    • January 21, 2018 / 2:13 PM

      Same! It definitely helps to get art in front of more people too!

  9. January 20, 2018 / 10:14 PM

    I definitely need to try that lotion because my hands are DYING right now. I’ve been using everything I can to keep them moist and nothing works!

    • January 21, 2018 / 2:53 PM

      I know that feeling well! This one is a serious game changer! I have a smaller bottle of it (that I got to try) but I’m totally ready to invest in a big one!

  10. January 21, 2018 / 12:01 AM

    I’m obsessed with HQ too and play every single day. I’m ready for the 10k jackpot tomorrow haha. Need to check out that video.

    • January 21, 2018 / 2:13 PM

      Me too! I can never get past Q8 though! One of these days we’ll be winners :)

      I’m so glad I found it – its been life changing! The Google app is so fun too – esp if you’re with friends/fam!
