WLC update

well, Cat has called a ‘recess’ on the WLC… and to be honest, I haven’t really been keeping up with her challenges either. *naughty frond!*

Still am pleased to report that I have lost about 2 kg and kept it off for more than a month now. I’m below the horrid 70kg mark so am feeling pretty good.

Am still trying to stay as active as I can. Have roped in the kids sometimes to get my butt off my computer chair and downstairs to the playground. Moving is so much better than sitting, don’t you think?

Anyways until Cat get the challenges back up… I won’t really update on this topic much.

long overdue updates…

Its been a while… a good long while… for those who have been patiently waiting for me to post, thank you for waiting…

So what happened… well, first up was my kid’s schooling. Still really coming to grips with everything I need to do in order to ensure they all stay on track and up to date.

Second, kinda fell off the m/u bandwagon for almost a month (connected to the 3rd point). The current EOTD posted was from more than a month ago… yeah, I am totally outta sync. The next few EOTDs will probably be long overdue pics that have been lurking on my computer too. They’re still nice looks just ‘old’ ones. *cheesy grin*

Third, landed myself in an emotional hole… I don’t know if its my hormones playing up again or other factors but I’ve been sleeping endlessly and just can’t gather together enough energy to do anything. This issue has plagued me on and off throughout my life. What the solution is… I have honestly no idea. Anyways, am on the way outta the hole for now and feeling so much better hence the posting. *giggle*

Fourth, reading all the other m/u blogs with their frequent hauls really makes me wish I were back at work with extra money to spend. All I have to offer is stuff that I already have and I’m just not sure if that’s what is worth blogging about. Still, I’m gonna keep posting EOTDs just for my own record keeping purposes. Will definitely be shopping my stash though so don’t expect any new purchases to appear.

Having said all that, in no way am I gonna give up on this blog. Its a work in progress and I’ll keep blogging about stuff that interests me.

At the moment, its nail polishes… oh, you don’t know how hard I’m sitting on my hands… the itch to press “BUY”… especially for some OPI colors like INK… drool… but I haven’t.

Well… actually I have… just one bottle of Mad as a Hatter from the recent Alice collection. Figured the mad amount of colorful glitter in that one was sure to perk up my mood a little. Can’t wait to see it in real life! *evil chuckle*

Til later… or whenever… keep your life colorful and happy!

Who let the dogs out…

this is a quad that I’ve not given enough love to… its so easy to use and the colors blend smoothly into each other.

The highlight was from DreamWorld Ice Fairey and

coming from Dayna’s Minerals (DM), this is…

Hi Jack, Baby Popo and Mr Sully

In particular, I love Mr Sully… the little sparkles lift this color to a whole ‘nother level.

And here’s how I used them…

  • Monistat – base
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil in french fries – on the lid smudged upwards
  • DM’s Hi Jack all over the lid
  • DM’s Baby Popo in the crease
  • DM’s Mr Sully in the outer v
  • DW’s Ice Fairey just under the brows
  • UD’s 24/7 liner in electric
