When I sat down to write this post I thought I’d have a hard time thinking about what I’ve been using a lot this month, but everything started to come to me immediately. I have a bunch of things to talk about, so I’ll just jump right into it.
I can’t think of a specific look that I went for most of the month, so the products in my make-up bag changed a couple of times each week. I think I used Stila’s In the Light palette
the most, since I posted a look
using it at the beginning of the month and I’ll be posting a couple more next month.
I also fell in love with Legendary Lure from the Alluring Aquatic collection
from MAC. Okay, so I’ve only had this for about a week but it was love at first swatch (seen online) and the color is even more beautiful in person.
I have a few nail polishes to talk about this month. I change up my nail polish often, but this month I kept gravitating to Essie’s Fashion Playground
. I almost passed by this shade because when my coworker and I held it up to Mint Candy Apple it didn’t look like there was much a difference. But once it’s on, the green in Fashion Playground is much more noticeable and it’s a beautiful color. I’m so glad that I didn’t overlook this.
I’ve become a little lax with wearing heels lately. It was a conscious decision. I used to wear heels all the time. When my niece was younger she used to know that I was around if she saw a pair of heels by the door. But now that I’m a little older and wiser I want to protect my feet, so I introduced flats into my wardrobe. And I didn’t wear heels again for far too long. Enter these wedges. I do feel more put together wearing a pair of heels and I don’t want to lose my ability to walk in them, so I bought these shoes, as well as a pair of pumps by the same brand
. I love both pairs, but these are definitely my favorite, especially if I’ll be walking around more. I keep the pumps at work and have these at home for church and other events outside of work. (I have stuffed these into my bag to wear them at work for a day every once in awhile too.) They’re so comfortable and I’ve received lots of compliments when wearing them them.
I’ve been walking more now that the snow is gone and it made me fall in love with my Jawbone Up all over again. It’s so much fun to see how many steps I get in each day. I even made it to 500,000 steps since I started using it and that was really exciting.
I can’t believe I’m admitting this online, but I bought the soundtrack for a ball that took place on a soap opera. I’ll probably be reading the GH book soon, though, so I might as well just admit my geekiness now. The music at the Nurse’s Ball on General Hospital was a lot of fun this year and they’re all songs that make me want to get up dance. My two favorites aren’t dance songs, but I love them anyway: Little Things (that kid is so cute, I hope they don’t age her character and find a new actress) and You’re Not Alone (both versions).
What have you been loving this month?
Note: I purchased all of the products listed in this post.
