So, I found some Sally Hansen Triple Shine nail polish in the discount bin at the local drug store. I grabbed two of them, because, why not? So last night I painted my nails. And my toenails. (I also used a Wet 'N Wild nail polish as a base for the white sparkle) Triple Shine Seanic, Triple Shine Pearly White, Wet N Wild Putting on Airs
I put a strengthener on my nails first, then I did 2 coats of the blue. Then I added the Pearly White to the tips. 2 coats. Then a top coat of OPI Start to Finish. (I know it doesn't look that great, but lets see how it holds up)
I put the Seanic on my toes. I thought it was going to be more of a uniform kind of color, but it really wasn't. I did 3 coats.
Here is a picture that I took yesterday, after doing hardly anything up until this point.
I did a lot of work with my hand yesterday. So here's a picture I took this morning. (And also one of my toes)
Needless to say, I'm not overly impressed.
So, I drink lots of tea. All kinds. So I thought I'd look up what types of teas can help you lose weight.
Here's a site I found.
Right now I've got an infuser with some chamomile in that I had dried, added some green tea leaves I bought at Bulk Barn, and threw in some fresh peppermint leaves from the plant on the table. Going to add a bit of honey. Hopefully it'll help with this craving I'm having and maybe put me to sleep!
Ok, so we're going to Cuba in March. That doesn't give me much time to tone these ol' thighs of mine up. I have no willpower. I can't do diets. Especially since my husband would never follow and I'm sure whatever he would be eating would be far too tempting for me.
So, here's my game plan:
1. Drink more water. This seems obvious, but I know I don't drink enough. I drink a cup of tea in the morning, a cup when I go to work. A bottle of water that lasts me from 1230 - 530, most days. I may have another tea in the evening or a glass of juice or milk. But obviously I need more. I just need to figure out where to fit it in. Which cup of tea do I cut out?
2. Plie squats. I started with 12, then 10 to each side. Now I'm up to 30 and 15 on each side. I'll keep trying to increase them until I go. I can't do regular squats, even though I'd like to. Because they work. But my knee makes this gross grind noise, and I can feel it.
3. Bridge lifts. Haven't started these yet. Because I'm lazy. I just need to find my motivation. Which I believe is a pair of shorts I bought that are just a little snug in the thigh area.
4. Kickboxing. There is someone in my town that does kickboxing lessons. I'm still trying to find more info on them, but what better way to feel better than to get a little fat burning cardio in?
5. More fruit, less chips. This one is pretty obvious.
6. No food after 7 pm. I read you shouldn't eat 3 hours before you go to bed. My cut off is 7pm. That doesn't include eating a meal, but it really helps to stop snacking. Nothing with any calories. Just water.
Let's see how this goes.
Like I said earlier, I don't actually wear much makeup. But I do use a Covergirl compact. My skin is uneven, red, and oily. Though it does not cover any imperfections, it works really well for the shine.
It's great for sensitive skin, which is great because you just never really know what will bother you. And it's waaay harder to hide it on your face!
So, after more than a year I finally decided I was going to dye my hair. I've been wanting to go burgundy. I had my hair just the way I liked it, but I thought it was time that I take the plunge. I have never dyed my hair before. I've had highlights a few times, but I've never dyed my hair. I asked to friend to help me pick the colour. And if she would dye it for me as well. This is the look I was going for:
I finally picked a colour. I believe it was this one. Garnier.
I don't like the feeling of getting my hair dyed, I know that. It's like having shampoo in your hair that you can't wash out. But it smells nice. Way better than other dyes I have used on my friend. Here is the result:
Definitely not burgundy. It looks very brown to me. In certain light, it does have a reddish hue to it. I will try burgundy again, but it will be at a hairdresser.
This is my first post on my first blog. I've read a lot of blogs, and I've decided I don't want to take up too much of your time. I always find myself scrolling down to the part I'm looking for. Skipping over all the things that don't actually pertain to the subject. Whether that may be a recipe or a review, I want to get right to the point. I promise I will try not to keep you long, on any one post anyway. But feel free to stay as long as you like.
So getting right to it, I want to tell you about my favourite eyeliner. I don't wear much make up, but I almost always have eyeliner on. And here it is, Annabelle Smoothliner.
It's well named. It goes on smooth. And it's hypoallergenic. Which is great, because a lot of products make my eyes burn. And it lasts. Here in Nova Scotia, it'll cost you about $8 for one. And I can't seem to find all the colours it actually comes in. I'll have to order some online. Though, I'm partial to Metal Daze.
Give it a try, you can thank me later.
