Thursday 9/15 – 3.2 miles @ 11:48 pace – This looks slow, but I actually did 0.25 mile sprints. So, I started slowly jogging for 1/4 mile, then sprinted 1/4 mile, then jog/walked, and so on. I also wrote down my sprint splits which were way faster than I ever imagined I could run (6.58, 6:40, 7:03, 6:43, 7:02, 7:04). Thus, I technically ran 1.5 miles at around a 6:55 pace. I almost gave up after the 4th sprint. My legs are jello.
Friday 9/16 -Bootcamp – This was a pretty poor showing for me at bootcamp. I don’t know if it was the speed work yesterday, or the fact that it’s Friday, or that I’m run down from wedding and job stress, but I felt completely burnt out.
This was an interesting assortment. Not much in the way of actual makeup…
|★★★★☆| Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment ($15) – I’ve reviewed this before, and to reiterate, it works really well, but I don’t like the feeling of product (any product) in my hair, so…
|★★★☆☆| Dr. G My Skin Mentor BB Cream ($32) – I would never pay that much for a cream that I’m not quite sure what it’s purpose is, but I do like it. I’ve been using it as a tinted moisturizer, essentially, and it has good coverage. Feels slightly heavy, but for something w/sunscreen, that’s not so bad.
|★★☆☆☆| Too Faced Lip Injection ($28) – I’m really torn on this one. It made my lips look amazing – berry colored, plump (god that’s a gross word, isn’t it?). But, it made them feel tight, burning, chafed (also a gross word). For someone who is prone to cold sores (yup, I’m just on a roll with the gross stuff right now), using it makes me nervous.
|★★★★☆| Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum ($38) – This seems…fine. It hydrates, which is in the name, so that’s good…right? Honestly, I can rarely tell the difference between moisturizers. As long as they don’t have a lot of perfume or chemicals that irritate my face, I’m good to go.
|★★★★★|Coastal Scents Elite Bamboo Collection Medium Shadow Brush ($3) – I LOVE this brush. I couldn’t find the exact one for sale outside of a set, but no matter. It’s great! Big enough to apply to the lid or the highlight in one sweep.
