Face of the Day

Here is what I wore today for an appointment I had at 9am:


  • Foundation – Lumiere Cashmere in Light Golden
  • Blush –  blush half of e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
  • Eyeshadow – the shadow half of the e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
  • Lipstick – Avon Smooth Minerals in Malted Minerals (discontinued)
  • Concealer – Silk Naturals Sleep in a Jar Light Peach Under Eye Concealer
  • Eyeliner – Avon Glimmersticks in Cosmic Brown
  • Mascara – L’oreal Something in Brown (can’t remember what kind! but it’s been discontinued)

I was going for a professional look, and these stand-bys are always quick and easy without looking like I spent a ton of time on my makeup (as I am wont to do).


Workout of the Day – TRX

I’d been interested in TRX for a while, so when a local gym that offers TRX classes was on Lifebooker, I snapped it up. At 20 classes for $20, I figured it was definitely worth trying.

After the first class…OMG. TRX is a humbling workout. It requires balance, strength, and coordination. I hadn’t been that sore since…ever.

Surprisingly, this gym is not overrun with new members using that fantastic deal. Classes are limited to 5 students, but I’ve had most of the classes alone so I can ask the trainer to work on specific areas. Today, it was my back. I’ve got a goal of doing at least on unassisted pull-up by the end of the year, so we worked on various back exercises, including low-rows.

I can’t wait for Friday’s class.
