Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
How are things? Its Finally the weekend! Although I don't know WHY I'm SO EXCITED...I have to work...
But still, ITS THE WEEKEND! :D
Meanwhile when I'm not throwing confetti in the air 'cause it's the weekend, lol I'm packing up stuff and cleaning. #FunTimes.
I'm also trying to order stuff for the up coming trip. #ActualFun
I really like to plan for a travel adventure.
I have been wanting a GOOD, but small curling iron (check), a cheap, but comfy pair of trainers (check) and can always use more shorts, face masks, etc. Check, Check..
I have thrown out some rubbish, boxed up more (not rubbish) and started a "Goodwill" pile, to donate. Where does all this stuff come from? As shopping goes, I am one of the least material of all my friends and still I have so much! IDK I'm thankful I had the money to purchase these things, but when it comes down to, it I see I really didn't so much stuff.
We plan on spending Christmas in the UK so mostly my shopping has come to a grinding halt. I prefer to have money while there and not just pretty meaningless what nots here. (The plan is to buy that at the Christmas Markets, thank you very much!)
Now I'm off for a walk before I get back to boxing up all my what nots. (You know I mean shoes, right?) LOL
Catch you later-
How are things in your world? Hope all is well and your having a lovely week. My Feb Conscious Box has arrived and is filled with much goodness! The theme this month was LOVE :D
Actually those that know me know I detest Pumpkin... I can eat it maybe 1 time per year and then I'm so done. Pumpkin flavor everything during the holidays...eeekk! :x
I took the Pumpkin to my mother and she was SO EXCITED! WIll share her review after she makes her pies or cookies or whatever. (Which will prob. be this weekend, she was that excited, lol)
The think the natural body deodorant would be perfect for the gym or throwing in the back pack. Perfect for on-the-go use-as-needed esp. in our heat.
Yes, The pkg is ripped because we started eating/sampling these, LOL These taste like dark chocolate and are full of antioxidants. Strong flavor and good for you? WIN WIN!
The straw is filled with "bee free honey with mint". Which is made with non-GMO apples, not actual honey. Yumms!
I was excited over this too. (Aunty much?) See spending time in the UK & EU taught me the value of tea towels. In the US we use tea towels some. (Actually for decoration. "See how color coordinated and matchy matchy my kitchen is darling? You spill something? Don't use good towel, here is roll of paper towels to clean up with.")
Generally we use roll after roll of paper towels.
Use and throw away.
I have always hated it.
It feels so wasteful!
Now have these BAMBOOEE They are washable, reusable towels. This towel can be used 100 times! OMG- Too Cool! They feel soft and sturdy, like a better quality paper towel. Gonna price them and then order for me and all my friends.
So much love was in this box!
I always look forward to the Conscious Box. I love being introduced to so many cool products (Most of which I didn't even know existed.) and the ability to to try before buying is awesome. :D
See you at the airport-
Hey! How are things? Hope your having a lovely week so far.
I hosted Girl's movie night last night. Guess what we watched? LOL
Yes, everyone had seen it and Yes, we watched it again and then spent the rest of the night (morning) laughing, eating & catching up. I think the last one left at around 2:30 this morning. #GoodTimes
I ordered a sandwich tray again and forgot to take any pictures WTF? So at one point I snapped and then snapped these mostly crappy shots of the food table.
But you get the idea. We partied hard, lol.
Beth made black rice (super Yums!) Aud brought cheese, cream cheese, crackers, Vanessa brought all the fruit and sauce. I ordered the sandwiches, and the other girls brought BR's, candy, assorted chips (Which we didn't even open!) and nuts. We are all trying to stick to "it" and eat healthy.
Everyone had a really good time. I just saw them like 3 days ago (we had an event we all attended) so I wondered if they all would show up. One of the new ladies couldn't make it due to the weather, but all the rest came, lol. I think making time for these silly little get togethers is what makes life fun. BIG events are nice and all, but its the little day-to-day times that make your life richer.
Plus its nice to get out, be social and just laugh together. :D
Catch you later-
How's it going? I'm about 12 hours later than normal in posting today. This has been the longest day ever. It really hasn't been BAD just really, really long, WTF?! I seem to be in some sorta time flux. Someone please call Dr. Who for me? #Geronimo and all that...IDK, do you think it could have had something to do with that run in the fog yesterday? LOL But let's move on and not think too much about it, ok?
Some of my latest on line loot came in today. I swore off all shopping for the month of Jan. so I'm outta everything now. I had to change up my travel plans yet again. (Not too happy about that you know I have #wanderlust.) So I placated my urge to travel by shopping. #ImBeingTruthful
Actually I rec'd packages at home, at the office and at the Post Office box today. (It was sorta like Christmas, except one box was vitamins & that's not something Santa should NOT bring.)
Bought these from an online store. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE smoky topaz. Did I mention I love smoky Topaz? I have a quite a few pieces already, but these were different so I thought why not? I was buying the fire opal earrings (at the top) for a gift, but I may now keep them. They are SO COOL. The light really catches the fire of the opals and it flashes like mad. I don't have any fire opals (only the boulder type, I think?) But also I have NOTHING to wear with them. I know if I keep them it will require MORE shopping! :D
And in another box I also got this...
I admit to being hooked on Peter Thomas Roth after I was gifted the night repair cream. So Now I am moving on to daytime/sunscreen and lip balm and anything else that I can find.
Please pardon the front camera on my ipad. (and the messy hair)
Am I bombshell yet? Lol Actually I used some err, cheap lipstick last week and it dried out my lips LIKE MAD. I have been using this wonderful Vegan lip balm (see below) but it just didn't seem to heal after the cheap lipstick. #FML
I was at dinner one night with Vanessa and friends and pulled this out of my bag to reapply. Someone asked me what it was and I announced it was Vegan and it was so good. But they thought I said, "Bacon" not Vegan, (Because they sound so similar, right?) and now all kid me about my bacon lip balm. LOL Meat eaters are so crazy.
I'm bored with my web design again. I want to change it, but don't know to WHAT. Any suggestions? IDK...Random isn't really a design style, lol.
Ok, I'm off to watch more True Blood and actually sleep. I'm hosting this weeks Girls Movie Night. So that means be on the look out for blurry food pictures and more nonsense from my crazy ass friends.
Catch you later-
How are things? I hope your weekend is going well.
The weather here is nice. Not too warm or too cold and today we had fog. One of my friends is always asking me to run with him on the trails. I do sometimes, but he is actually much more hardcore than I am. #Truth
Also he always raves about running early in the morning in the fog. :o
This morning I skipped yoga & took him up on a "fog run".
I should note than we both know this area/trail really well and also its not open to anything but foot traffic. It is still dangerous, but not like running in the fog down the street, WTF?! You understand? So if you decide to do this, be careful!
He claims that running in the fog is a great way to jump start your workout. If you feel like you are in a rut or like you have hit a
It's time to do something different and shake things up some. We had fun and I think I finished in record time, because it was sooooo creepy. #Truth
It was actually really cool. We stayed together and had fun. But also we didn't linger and were careful.
I didn't actually freak out, but I did feel like something was moving in the brush along the trail a couple of times. I really think (hope) it was a skunk or a armadillo. I don't think I would want to do this everyday, but it was ok for a change.
Now I'm off to a lunch date. :D
Catch you later-
it's Friday! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. I went to Kundalini Yoga last night. It was awesome! After I went for dinner and drinks with some of the girls. It was really, really late when I got in.
So pardon my slight hang over. #FML
Moving on and not talking about my hangover-
I am trying out a couple of new products this week.
I am actually really excited. I love the night cream so much. I have very dry skin and its so hard to find creams that are moisturizing and not oily/greasy. If it's 1/2 as good as the night cream we have a winner!
That was only one pump and all that came out. It doesn't feel heavy and my skin absorbed it fast. There was no greasy feel afterwards either. I will see how it does in this horrid heat. #NotExcitedAboutSummer
I can't believe they still look so good. Its been how many days since I rec'd the flowers? 7 days???? WOW!
A couple more of my friends quit their jobs this week. WTF?! It must be in the air or something. I don't know. I'm still working away.
I had a trip planned this weekend but I had to cancel because of work at the last minute. So I guess I will just stay here and work and save for my next adventure. There are lots of great cruise sale right now. Did you see? That really is the best way to travel and my #wanderlust is growing. I'm so ready for a trip.
Now I'm off- I need to grab some more water for my headache. lol

How are things? Hope all is well with you.
I bought this polish sometime ago and really like it. Its from Sephora and is called S-age is just a number.
It is almost impossible to capture the different colors with the camera. Its gold, bronze, and green. I was excited to see how it would look on my nails.
This was 2 coats and although it looks mostly bronze in the photos it changed to all the different colors as I moved my hands or the light changed.
What do you think? I had so many people comment on how pretty it was. :D
One coat was too sheer for me, but two covered nicely. I would think 3-4 coats would really add to the shine/color change ability. I just didn't have a lot of time.
I'm glad I bought it and will use it again.
Catch you later-
How are things going? Sorry I have been MIA here and the 'net.
I assure you I have not robbed a bank or eloped, (God forbid) to Mexico-
I've just been in super long, brain numbing meetings and completely brain dead after. #RealLifeZombie WTF!?
I have a weekend trip coming up soon. (yeah Travel!) and exciting things may be in the works (fingers crossed) on the business front. More as it actually happens.
But regardless, I will catch up soon!
