I was at Walmart one day last week for groceries and decided to treat myself to something.  I picked up this new Color Elixer lip product (?) by Maybelline.  The color I picked up is 025 Mauve Mystique.

I don’t know what to call this product.  I didn’t even know what it was when I picked it up.  There wasn’t a very good display, just a bunch of them in a tray on a shelf.  I thought they were lipsticks in a clear tube!  (I was holding it upside down *o*).  They’re not solid though.

Maybelline states it “delivers the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss.”  I find all three of those to be true.  It feels slightly heavy on the lips, but it’s not terrible.  It’s not overly sticky to me.  This mauve shade is a nice neutral color on my lips.

Check out this crazy applicator.  Isn’t it funky?  They say it’s their exclusive angora brush.  What does that mean?  Angora, as in rabbits?  I should look into that more, because I am crazy allergic to rabbits.

I really like the way this looks on my lips and I’m anxious to try some other shades.

TGIF!

Sore

Have you seen this ab workout popping up on Pinterest?  I like to scroll through the fitness category and I’ve seen it several times recently.  I didn’t really take much notice of it (other than a giggle at the smile that girl has on her face while she’s doing all those exercises)…until I saw this post.  Wow!  I hope you don’t mind me linking to you Shannon.  I’ll say it again, wow!  Her results are impressive.

So Sunday evening I thought I’d give the 300/30 ab workout a try.  It was hard.  I couldn’t do all 25 reps of each exercise.  Some I cheated on.  Instead of counting both sides of an exercise as one rep, sometimes I counted each side as a rep.

I’m still sore.

That’s good, right?

But I didn’t do the workout last night.  I just tried to do it tonight and I couldn’t even do 5 of the first exercise.  That might be because I didn’t change out of my jeans yet though 😉

I’m off to try again.  Wish me luck!

Need some help

Is there anyone out there who can tell me what this is?

I did it

If you were here with me at the beginning of the year you might remember one of my goals for 2009 was to read all of Jodi Picoult’s books. Well I did it. I finished the last one yesterday. Can you believe it? That was cutting it close :). What should I read now?

Woohoo

My iphone is at my house.  I need to go home now!  How am I supposed to work the rest of the day knowing that box is sitting there waiting for me to rip into it???

So excited

November.27.2009

Well, guess what I ordered today?  An iPhone!  Okay, so I’m very excited.  It’s refurbished, but I saved $150.  That’s cool, right? 

Oh and guess what else I got?  Some Copic markers.  Great deals at Taylored Expressions for Black Friday.

Yeah, I’m excited.

I’m so sad.  I haven’t been neglecting my blog on purpose.  I’ve just been having a bad week.  My pretty kitty, Baby, died.  So I’ve been spending most of my time crying bucketfuls of tears.

I do have to admit, it appears I am one lucky gal.  I was the winner on Mellypea’s warehouse walk giveaway for last week!  All I can say is wow!  That’s 2 prizes in about 2 weeks.

When I get all this stuff I’m definetely going to share it with you.  I have the 2 prizes coming, plus some stamps from Unity Stamp Co. This is my first order with them.  All of their stamps look super-cute.  I really want to join their Kit-of-the-Month Club.  Maybe I should budget for that.

Since I don’t have any scrapbook related stuff to show you how about checking out some pictures I took over the weekend?  Does that sound okay?  Let me know what you think.
