Happy Friday! This week’s favorites are filled with another Japan photo, a magic way to remove blackheads, a cute video, exciting Starbucks news, rain boot poll, and my wish list!
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
This week I shared another one of my favorite photos from my trip to Japan. The photo was taken outside of Osaka Castle. I took a couple hundred photos there that day – so you can see why it’s taking so long to pick my favorites!
Has anyone else been overwhelmed with the videos online of the charcoal masks? Everywhere I turn there seems to be another person pulling off half their skin with these masks. And then when I go to read the comments and reviews, it seems like they don’t actually work which is a shame.
But because I kept seeing these videos I decided to do some research and see if I could find a solution that actually worked. Let me tell you, these Biore Nose Strips worked disgustingly well. And by that, I mean the amount of crap they grabbed was mesmerizing and slightly nauseating. I highly recommend them, just don’t stare at the strips too long afterwards.
World’s Largest Starbucks
If you know me, you know that I love coffee – I drink it all day long. 10pm? Perfect time for a cup! 6am? Don’t talk to me unless you’re handing me a cup of coffee. So you can imagine I was excited when I heard that Chicago is the location of Starbuck’s newest concept – a 43,000-sq.ft. Reserve Roastery. It’s going to be walking distance from me (keep in mind my version of walking distance is anything under 5 miles or so) and the location will be dedicated to roasting, brewing and packaging rare, small-batch Starbucks Roastery Reserve coffees from around the world. Yes please.
Baby Meets the Rain
This video is beyond adorable. To say I have baby fever is an understatement. I cannot wait for moments like this.
Rain Boots – Yes or No?
But with the amount of rain Chicago has been getting I’ve been eying these… I’m not too sure if they’re too loud for an almost 30 year old or if I should just go for it. Thoughts? Color choice?
Each week I find myself adding products to my Amazon wish list – it’s getting slightly out of hand. But it’s still fun so I decided to make it a part of my weekly post so you can also see what I have my eye on. If you have something fun you’ve found I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
