Healthy Living: Volume #2

Happy Hump Day!  Now all I can picture on Wednesdays is that camel walking around so happy about life.  Oh Geico, how you change lives. 

I'm here with my weekly weigh-in and recap of my road to a more healthier me!

Review & Lookbook: Disney by Sephora Storylook Palette Volume 3: Ariel

I hope you guys had a great weekend and hopefully a wonderful Monday.  I'm enjoying Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals right now (go Boston!) as well as some wrestling along with my power going in and out from the crazy storms rolling through.  Hopefully it sticks around long enough for me to get this post up!

I've been enjoying playing around with the Ariel palette (go here for some swatch action!).  Keep on reading to see some looks I created, as well as how I'm feeling about it!

Healthy Living: Volume #1

Hi all!  This is a new weekly feature that I'm hoping to do on Wednesdays since that's my self-appointed weigh-in day, but I'm going to use this post as a jumping off point.  Allow me to share a couple disclaimers:
  • I am NOT a doctor or nutritionist.  I'm simply a girl who has struggled with my weight all my life and have done a slew of things to try to get it under control.
  • This is probably going to be a novel so if you don't feel like reading a lot, this post probably isn't for you.
That being said, here is a before/after picture that I took about a year ago, but the after hasn't changed too much save the hair color and cut.

On the left is me at close to my heaviest point (about a year before).  My heaviest was 225 pounds when I was in the tail-end of my freshman year of high school.  On the right is last summer when I was down to about my current weight of 155 pounds.  So let's get started on the journey to get here, shall we?

Unboxing: June Birchbox and ipsy

Hello again!  I told you I'd be back.  Let's jump on in, shall we?

Ramble: Healthy Hair

Hi all!

I should be back later with another post (ipsy and Birchbox) but I've been feeling like my Blog hasn't been getting as much love on my part as it should so today shall be a two post kind of day!

Two weeks ago I went from having dark brown/honey blonde ombre hair to having orange/strawberry blonde hair (sidenote:  apparently people have a negative connotation to calling hair "orange".  Why?  It is what it is!). 

That being said it obviously was quite the process.  I went from having my hair stripped, to having it foil bleached, to having the color put on, to having it blown out.  My hair was a trooper and definitely wasn't nearly as damaged as I thought it would be but I could certainly tell that it needed a little extra love and care to be nursed back to a place where we both were happy.

Swatches: Disney by Sephora Storylook Volume 3: Ariel

I'll keep the introduction quick.  If you can go see Cirque du Soleil's Totem show, you probably should.  Amazing.  Anyway, onto the eyeshadow!

Coming Soon!

So only about five feet away from me is the Storylook Volume 3:  Ariel Palette.  Words can't even express to you how difficult it is for me to not play with it.  I will have swatches up tomorrow night as I am going to see Cirque du Soleil tonight so I won't have time to play.  But let me tell you that it is stunning and I cannot wait to see the swatches!!  So with that, be patient and I will have them up first thing tomorrow night!  I mean, I will scarf something down to eat and then it's ON!

In other news, yesterday I attended a taping of ABC's The Chew and it was a blast!  If you have a chance to go you probably should.  The cast is fabulous and it's just so much fun.  The only tortorous thing is going in there and not being able to eat what they're cooking.  It smells amazing!  They were doing a show all about burgers yesterday so needless to say my Mom and I were craving burgers in the worst way by 10:00am.  We found a little place in Le Parker Meridien (119 W 56th) called Burger Joint and holy moly were those burgers good!!  Even the fries were amazing!  I'm a ketchup junky and I didn't put any on those fries, that's how good they are.  It's a little on the tough side to find, though, so let me try to help.  When you go in the lobby, in the back towards the left is a big red curtain.  Right in front of the curtain is a tiny little "hallway".  Go down there and you should see a neon burger sign so you know you've found it!  Read the rules, order and enjoy!  I suggest a cheeseburger with the works. :-)

Until tomorrow!
