Hard Candy

Here I have Hard Candy Blue Lagoon topped with Hard Candy Pop-arrazi. I love blue lagoon, it is a gorgeous, bright cobalt-ish blue with an almost jelly like finish. This is two coats. It dries smooth and quickly with no hiccups. Pop-arrazi is a great glitter topper. It reminds me of cutting up comic strips in newspapers. The shades of blue, black, yellow, red, and white really pop against blue lagoon.

Here's just a quick and dirty swatch. I'll be thrifting for a camera here shortly. I sold mine last year for a 6 person tent, lol.

Flashback Post

I was browsing amazon (my favorite site for everything!) and I was in the process of purchasing my favorite Bath and Body Works scent: Juniper Breeze. I have worn Juniper Breeze since  I was 8 years old. I used to steal country apple from my mother and she bought me my own Juniper Breeze. I've been in scent love ever since.

Anyhow - for some reason these juicy tubes by Lancome popped into my head and I had to search for them. I distinctly remember this gorgeous hot pink shade that screamed poolside-summer. My mom was always at the make up counter looking for something reasonable with our meager military income. I always escaped to the Lancome counter and applied a juicy tube shade - every 12 year old needed the perfect pout, duh.

Naturally, I went online and purchased one and am eagerly awaiting its arrival! Do you have any favorite throwback scents or make up that you purchase from amazon or ebay?

Weight Loss Journey: Update

Awhile back I posted at the mid-point of my weight loss journey. You can read that here. I realized just now I never updated anyone.

So I continued on my exercise path. I ran twice a day, every other day. Sit ups, push ups, a lot of training where I used my own body weight as resistance. I started at almost 240lbs. I ended at 158lbs. I could fit into a size 8 jeans which never happened a day in my life.

Then I got pregnant. Womp womp. LOL. Anyway - I'm still trying to exercise even when I'm too tired to do it. I'm not entirely successful with that yet. But, I haven't gained a terrible amount of weight, I can still wear my jeans they just won't button..and to be honest, that's a feat in itself because my other pregnancies I had to retire my jeans early because I couldn't even pull them up over my thighs!

Anyway, just thought I would update :) If you're struggling with your weight loss or just need some inspiration, if my lazy butt did it, yours can as well!
