What’s happening? I’ve been working on a billion voiceover scripts (exaggeration, but we’ve been happily busy). Here is the stuff I have voiced in the last 5 days (my audiobook papers are in here too)
I am also running on the track with The Right Shoe athletes tonight! YAY, track running…fun!
I’ve been turning into a night owl, i’d say for the past week. I don’t like it! I stayed up late to complete the audiobook and it has turned into me staying up until about 1am and waking up at 8am the last few days… not gonna fly for much longer!
At about 11pm last night I started to make soup.. Awkward time to make soup…I KNOW.. but it worked out well…
Here is the recipe. Things I added to this batch that I didn’t in the last were- Kidney Beans, zucchini and banana squash. I also added a dash of cayenne pepper, and Trader Joe’s 21 Salute Spice. This batch is just sooo delicious. It is filling and feels good to know you are eating NOTHING but good wholesome veggies. (No need for multi vitamins with this in your fridge!)
Yesterday I had a makeup/hair consultation with a beautiful gal getting married this July. I won’t put up her pic (in case she doesn’t want it up- I forgot to ask)
But here is how I did her hair:
To get the curls, I put these hot rollers in her hair, while I did the makeup.
After her makeup was done, I took the hot rollers out, I teased the hair a bit at the root, smoothed it over, put it in a side pony tail and started hair spraying and pinning!
Her makeup was super light, fresh and pretty. I had to convince her to wear a half set of fake eyelashes. She didn’t want to- but once I got them on, she was happy!
It seems like I am always due to add more makeup to the kit. It’s a never ending investment, lol.
I rarely EVER buy makeup from the drug store! Here’s why:
As some of you know, my fiancee Mike is a Self Development Podcaster (among other things). Twice a week he records these podcasts and he likes me out of the house while he is recording, it’s cute, but he is still shy to voice them in front of me! (Click here to check out his magical wisdom!)
So, last week when he was recording, I strolled over to London Drugs to wander around the cosmetics department. I was starring at the Cover Girl Lip Stains for a long time. Deciding if I should buy one or not..I know that the amazingly talented makeup artist Pat Mcgrath helped formulate them, so I figured they would be outstanding! Hi Pat!
So I bought the “nude” coloured one. The verdict….It’s not so bad…The colour is definitely muddier and darker than a “nude”, but for a base under lip gloss it is OK.
I figured I better get a gloss to go over top, so I got the “berry” Amazemint lip gloss… Where is it now??? IN THE GARBAGE CAN!
The colour was fine and I didn’t mind the minty flavour but the gloss lasted 2 seconds on the lips. Also, the lid sucks and the gloss leaked everywhere. UGH, I hate that! I know that expensive lip glosses leak too, ha, but it got all over the place and I was perturbed (word of the day).
The one thing, time and time again I will buy at the drug store is this:
I LOVE Loreal mascara. I’ve been using it for years. It is a+ in my books.
Do you have any drug store makeup purchases that you love? What about ones that you dislike?
Enjoy the rest of your day! I HEART you!
Words of wisdom from T Harv Eker:
“No one’s helping themselves with disaffirming thoughts. Instead of “I don’t want to do this,” how about “I’m going to treat myself when I’m done.” Positive associations instead of negative. You can make the best of it or the worst of it. We choose. It’s as simple as that.”
