Just gonna ease back into posting with a nice, easy update post. Instead of going back and updating each review, i'm gonna put them all in one spot. I figure more people will actually see the updates this way.
Let's start with one of the first things i reviewed: Treat Beauty. This lip balm is still one of my favorite things. The flavors/scents are amazing. I have only had one that i didn't like and that was pumpkin spice. Some of my favorites are Marshmallow Cream, Birthday Cake, Mint and Matcha, and Oatmeal Cream Pie. The size is both a pro and a con (more pro). I love that they are huge and last forever, however, it makes it harder for me to justify buying new flavors when they come out because i already have so many. I mean, i still buy them, but i feel a little bad. I have reviewed Treat a few times. If you want to see the original reviews, go here and here. They have a healing balm that looks like something i may want to try as my skin is acting up right now. I have tried the Birthday Cake hand cream and the Butter Your Muffin body cream. Both were good, but the Birthday Cake, while delicious smelling, was a little too strong for me.
Next up, Too Faced. I really like this brand, even though some of the products were misses for me. I reviewed the It's Bananas Setting Powder and the Hangover Primer. Original review here. They now have a whole line of Hangover facial care. While there were a lot of things I liked about the primer, ultimately, my skin didn't like it and would break out when i used it. The setting powder i still use, but probably will not buy it again. It smells great and does an OK job, but i will probably try something else when it is gone. My favorite Too Faced products? The Peaches and Cream collection eye palettes, all of them, and the Peaches and Cream collection foundation and primer. Also a fan of the Born This Way concealer. Oh, also the Peach Puff lipstick. The whole Peach collection is pretty great honestly.
One product i was obsessed with was the Purlisse Orange Creamsicle Body Butter. It was originally offered in a gift set of travel size items. I was super excited when i saw them offer the body butter in a full size, but so super sad and disappointed when i got it and the smell was different. This was a collab with Kandee Johnson, who, while i don't know her personally, seems like the sweetest and nicest person on the planet. Seriously, everyone go follow her on Instagram (@kandeejohnson) right now. Anyway, i really was really sad about the lotion scent changing.
I think that is all the updates i have. I did not update all of the reviews i did, so go read those if you have not already, there are some really good products in there. I'm currently trying out some new products so look for those reviews in a few weeks!
It has definitely been awhile since my last post. Nothing new there. My last post was about me preparing for a race I signed up for. Well the pandemic happened and my race got cancelled just a few days before it happened. It was changed into a virtual race, which means you run the same distance on your own and upload your results to a website. Not as fun. I was a few seconds short of my 10 minute/mile goal, and while i was super disappointed in myself, i'm still here. For now.
I also started a new job at the same time. If i was scheduled to start a week later i would not have had a job (yay pandemic) so i got really lucky there. The new job has been going well. The training process is slow but i'm getting through it as fast as i can. Being new at a company during these times gives a very uncertain feeling so i'm trying to make myself as useful as i can, as fast as i can.
You'd think, with having extra time on my hands because of everything going on, tat i would be productive and get stuff done, or, i dont know, pay more attention to writing and posting here. All of those things have definitely been on my mind while i sit on the couch and do nothing instead. I have been thinking about what to post. I thought about doing an update post for all of the reviews i have done so far and that idea is in the lead. I just recently ordered from Curology after seeing the ad five million times on Instagram and Facebook, so I will definitely give my opinion on that in a month or two after i have tried it. I also have been working on an idea for a fitness-related post in my head for awhile. I guess i should start writing some notes on paper and put it together. The original idea was exercises you can do during the day at work. What is interesting for me about this idea is that it is definitely evolving as my workplace has changed and the exercises that would have worked at my previous job will not necessarily work at my current job. So definitely finding exercises that work in all different work environments will be a challenge. My idea is not to stop what your doing at work and exercise (ain't nobody got time for that), but to find little things you can do throughout your day that add up. And also things you can do that are not obvious to everyone around you. Now if i could only finish one of these ideas and post it.
I am part of the generation that made ADD a thing and it shows. My thoughts are random and I am constantly squirreling, but that's what keeps things interesting, right?
