It’s Robin’s turn to leave the country this week, leaving Hannah and Michelle behind and (unfortunately) sick. Check out what we’ve been obsessing over in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

I’ve been home sick this week which means I have spent a LOT of time laying on the couch watching Hallmark Movies & Mysteries and online shopping. A few of my products from my casual Korean skincare routine were running low, so it was time to buy a million new things to try. Robin has bought things through Beautylish before so I decided to give it a try for a few new The Ordinary potions. The box arrived yesterday and everything was packaged so beautifully that now I’m totally hooked, plus it came with a few lipstick tattoo/sticker samples that look crazy and I can’t wait to attempt. Beautylish carries mostly higher end brands, but everything from The Ordinary has the same dirt cheap prices that you can find on their site with the benefit of free super fast shipping over $35. I also grabbed a few new things from Amazon. Anyone interested in a skincare routine part two? Let me know in the comments. I’m getting back into putting acids on my face if that entices anyone…

Turns out when Michelle and I travel we are both obsessed with food. In the Basque region of Spain, traditional tapas are replaced with pintxos; small sandwiches or bites that are made and displayed at all the bars around town. We went on a pub crawl of sorts to try all the different options and really carbo load. My cured meat intake has gone through the roof this week but when you wash it down with sangria (basically a fruit) it all evens out, right?


Cleveland Indians

Fresh off a record-setting 22 game win streak, the Tribe clinched the AL Central this past weekend. It’s a crazy time to be a Cleveland sports fan, what with the success of the Cavs and Indians in the last few years. At least we have the Browns to keep us humble.

Refinery 29 Money Diaries

I’ve always found these posts interesting, but I recently fell into a pretty deep hole reading them. Now I can’t get enough. I’ve been reading old posts, poring over the comments, and even drafting my own money diaries. The comments have been getting savage on some of them, and I just can’t look away!


This has been another week of And Then We Tried Obsessions, where we share whatever we’re obsessed with each week. Let us know what you’re obsessed with this week in the comments and if you see anything in the wild that you think we’d be obsessed with, be sure to tag us @andthenwetried or use #ATWTobsessions
