and then we tried obsession

Hannah and Michelle are headed to a bachelorette this weekend and TBH that’s what we’ve been obsessed with for most of the week. Here’s what else we’ve been obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions



kill and plant new grass in the fall

I’m in the process of killing my front lawn, but I don’t think the spray weed/grass killer is working very well. My parents got me a new lawn for my birthday (last year we moved my back fence for my birthday), so we sprayed the poison all over the place on Sunday and will do the tilling and planting next weekend. I don’t know how long it should take for the grass to all die though. Have any of you killed your lawn and replanted? Did you have to spray the grass killer multiple times?


Bryr Clogs

My second pair arrived this week and I cannot get enough. Full review of Bryr and their amazing clogs to come!

UPDATE: Full review of Bryr clogs here.


Microdermabrasion is “a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells.” Thank you, HuffPost. It involves an aesthetician using a wand looking tool to basically exfoliate all your dead skin off and you’re left feeling glowy and baby-faced… so they say.

I’ve heard great things about it—I’ve heard “meh” things about it—and I want to know if you guys have tried it. Everyone wants to get rid of that dead skin right? Is this worth it? Please let me know!


American Fire

I’ve been reading American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land by Monica Hesse and I’m really enjoying it. It’s about a string of fires set to abandoned structures in a rural area of Virginia. I’m not normally a non-fiction kind of person, but I definitely recommend this book. Not done with it yet but I’m liking what I’ve read so far!

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
