HiP haul

lately i've found it pretty pointless (well, time consuming) to post about my makeup hauls...i mean, for me it's just run in the store...grab conditioner...grab a gloss, or some e/'s really informal. don't get me wrong, it's just as exciting to get something new as it was when i first started really wearing makeup a few months back, but it's just ordinary to me now.

anyhoo, i've been coupon clipping and waiting for the infamous BOGO HiP sale to return to CVS...and it came this week! it's weird, i just happened to go there yesterday cause something told me HiP was on sale. boy was i right, and i am in looooove already with these glosses that i got.

the rundown:
HiP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolor - arresting (pictured above) and euphoric
HiP Color Presso ligloss - swanky
HiP kohl eyeliner - gold kohl
shadow duos in dynamic and platinum
HiP Color Rich Cream Crayon - perfectionist and intricate

i needed something to act like a MAC shadestick, and then i wanted some really bold glossy lipcolors...mission accomplished. next goal is to depot the HiP rush on that though.

good news, bad news

good news: i made it to 22.5 minutes (90%) on the elliptical today...oh yeah, i'm a beast.

bad news: i am NOT retaining length like i should be. my ends are a hot mess, and i JUST trimmed them like a month ago. i'm going into braids ASAP, and until i get up the energy to braid my hair i'm stretching my hair. that means twistouts, rollersets, straighter hair. i bet relaxed girls don't have this problem...

gray rollers


i just did a sloppy rollerset that i don't expect to last past soon.


exercise update

wednesday: 17 mins on elliptical (why is this thing so much harder than the treadmill?)
thursday: 10 mins arc runner (gave up), 10 mins stationary bike
friday: 18 mins elliptical, 50 sit-ups

i got my fruits and veggies in EARLY for breakfast, spinach and cucumber salad for lunch. that's 3 so i may throw in another for fun.

good news/bad news

the megatek is inconsistent. good job, me, but i've been having fun with puffs again. sue me.

the exercise fell off completely last week...between the new job and all, i just didn't feel like i had time. i did buy an exercise ball (it came with a resistance band + a yoga mat) to motivate me to workout in my apartment...and to improve my posture. my back hurts so maybe it's working.

workout for this week:
20 mins cardio (switch to 25 on thursday)
5 mins stairclimber
10 mins on exercise ball
