Online shopping

And the cold weather has hit Milan!

These last few days the temperatures have been around 0 celsius day and night, so you can only imagine my joy in taking the dog out at 7 am in a freezing -4 celsius ๐Ÿ˜€ I bundled up nicely, and kindaย felt like a sausage with all those layers, but at least I was worm!

Since the cross-country ski world cup has moved to another city, no one was on the snow this morning so Daigo and I took advantage of it en route to the dog area.

Daigo absolutely loves the snow, and started running like crazy as soon as we got on it!

I spent haf of my day studying and the other half cooking a few things that will soon be posted online.

Then, before I could actually think about it, I got in sweaty dirty freshly washed running clothes and set out for a run; I knew that if I stopped to think about it even for a moment I would skip it because the idea of running in 0 ยฐC wasn’t exactly appealing to me ๐Ÿ˜€

I ran for 7.60 Km (4.70 Mi) in 45.45 (ah!) minutes. It’s a lot, but actually I had to stop for a few of those minutes because I had a bad case of belly ache… I’m sure other lady runners will understand what I mean ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought running in cold weather I wouldn’t sweat a lot…silly me. Siiiilly meee. My body has the tendency to sweat a lot, and especially on my head underneath my hair, and, apparently, no matter what the temperature is, I end a run with hair literally dripping. I’m sure you’re all happy I shared this with you ๐Ÿ˜€

once I got home I saw there were two packages for me, an Amazon one and a IHerb one, and obviously couldn’t wait to open them, so I sat on the floor in my sweaty clothes and un-stretched muscles (I eventually did stretch them) and opened them. I don’t know about you, but I love to receive packages!

This is what they contained:

From the amazon order: it’s huge and it cost me a bit, but it was still a sweet deal and it will last me a life time, hopefully!

Neither chia seeds or stevia can be sold in Italy, so I had to buy them online. If anyone has a good use for chia seeds, please link up! I only know of a few ways to use them.

These I obviously used imediately.What can I say? I almost screeched of joy when I noticed the shampoo lathers. None of the natural shampoos I’ve tried up to now lather; I’d almost given up hope! Plus they smell like coconut heaven! (Mattia, you’ll be happy :D).

In my IHerb order I also found a little gift:

Do they give these at every order? Because I kinda like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you a online shopper? If so, do you get excited when you receive something?ย 

I’m quite the online shopper: it’s so much easier ( and lazier) and there is so much more choice! As for getting excited..well yes, I most certainly do ๐Ÿ˜‰
