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!
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:
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.
Prepare food the night before to avoid hospital cafeteria food. I don’t think this requires much explaining.
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!!!
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.
Welcome! I'm Amber, and this is my blog. I'm not fashionable enough to have a true "fashion blog," nor am I exciting enough to have a "lifestyle blog." So, this is my "share-my-random-thoughts" blog. Shopping, fitness, finance, meditation, healthcare, food... you get the idea. I throw some outfit pictures in there for some visual interest!
Thanks for stopping by. Contact me with any questions or comments. I love hearing from you!
