Pink Lips

August 27, 2011 in Forever21

I have never been into lip color. Well, I probably experimented when I was a kid, stealthily stealing my mom’s makeup and thinking that if I wipe off the color before she sees, she won’t notice my stained lips. But I haven’t worn lip color recently. Or at least anything beyond tinted glosses. I got this sample color a while ago and never used it because its bright and rather ugly on me. I gave it a shot in this post for a “pop” of color, because I’ve seen so many bloggers pull off this look so well. I think its going into the “tried and failed” category!

Healthy Choices

August 24, 2011 in Anthro

There are a few things that I would really like to improve on next month when this craziness is over (only 2 more 28 hour shifts and a shelf exam to go!!). So, here are my September goals:

  1. Work out in the morning. This may mean getting up crazy early, but its so nice when its 6:00 and you’re awake, in shape, with a green tea in hand. Goal: 3-4 times per week + weekends.
  2. Prepare food the night before to avoid hospital cafeteria food. I don’t think this requires much explaining.
  3. Make educated purchases. Next month I really want to focus spending my money on a few items that I will wear for seasons. I noticed I’ve been doing a bit of frivolous buying, which is ok sometimes, but I haven’t even been wearing all of my new items. In a future post I’ll name my “September Items.” No spending if its not on that list!!!

OOTD. Today is so beautiful outside!!

Wear a Helmet

August 22, 2011 in J. Crew

Freckles in April has had some fun challenges, but I’ve been too busy to take part in most of them. I was browsing my daily blog reads on my iphone at work (when nobody’s watching, of course) when I came across the most recent challenge: monochrome. It sounded like fun, and SURPRISE! I got off work early. So here are my pics (before I go take a nap…)

PS. If you know anyone who rides a motorcycle, please tell them to wear a helmet. Everyone’s scalp looks much better when its attached. Why is wearing a helmet not a law?? Ugh, too much trauma surgery.
