Can you believe it?! This is the last Sunday Social from Neely and Ashley . Thank you for this wonderful link-up, ladies! I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with in November.

Sunday Social with A Complete Waste of Makeup Blog

1. How did you come up with your blog name?
I like blush, and I like barbells, and I really like alliteration.

2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I am a bit reserved and shy In Real Life, so I like being able to drone on and on here on my blog. Thanks to everyone who reads!

3. What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can’t live without?
I am so grateful that my little corner of cyberspace has resulted in friends across the globe.

4. Facebook or Twitter? Why?
Facebook (add me as your friend!) – I like Twitter but it moves too fast.

5. If one celeb read your blog, who would you want it to be?
ShaunT? Tony Horton? Sagi Kalev? Any of those guys would be great.

6. What is something you want people to know about your blog?
It’s a hobby, not a job, so enough with the “you haven’t kept up with it very well” messages, kthxbye.

How’s your weekend?

Sunday Social – Faves

Peeps, my blogging has been rather sporadic recently, but the least I can do is participate in a Sunday Social!

1. Favorite scent
Orange blossom in the spring
orange blossom, spring, scents, southern california

2. Favorite food
I’m so over food lately. You’d think that would translate into a little bit of weight loss, but no.

3. Favorite sound
My purring kitty – it’s especially nice for snuggling and sleeping. I miss her so much.

Good morning peeps! I had a killer workweek so just now catching up on posts, so let’s get right to it.

3. If you could go back to college is there one thing you would change?
Despite my answer for #2, I think I should have gone to a school that offered me more financial aid, even if it wasn’t as prestigious.

4. What was your favorite class you ever took?
I loved Medieval Architecture, Spanish Linguistics, and Cuban History.

5. Reach into your purse what is the first thing you grab?
My Shakeology shaker cup. It needs a thorough wash!

Are you doing any back-to-school shopping?

Social Sunday, A Complete Waste of Makeup

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re all having a great weekend.

1. One item you wish you could splurge on right now:
All the stuff in the Fonart store across the street – the furniture in particular is so beautiful! But how would I ship it home? It will have to wait until I retire here to Mexico.

2. If you had an entire weekend of no plans what would you do?
Since I’m still in Mexico, maybe a weekend trip to Taxco? I would love to do that before I go home.

3. Next place you are visiting outside of your current city?

Volcán Popocatépetl, Puebla

Volcán Popocatépetl, Puebla

I’m in Puebla today! I visited before and I really loved it, so of course I had to register for a 10K in Puebla when I saw it on the schedule.

4. Are you a neat freak or a clutterbug?
Both? I just like to keep my clutter hidden in cupboards and closets.

5. Favorite Summer purchase?
All these piggy banks I’ve bought from street vendors in Mexico City. So cute! And who doesn’t need a piggy bank?

Do you have a piggy bank? If not, where do you put your loose change?


Sunday Social – This or That

Good morning and I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! I’m headed off to the gym (and by off to the gym I mean I’m getting in the hotel elevator and riding down a few floors – can’t make any excuses!) but first, it’s time for another Sunday Social.

2. Tea or Coffee?
Coffee AND Tea!

3. Fruits or Veggies?
My usual work snack

What I eat at the hotel breakfast buffet

4. TV or Movies?
TV, I guess? I like to watch my soaps while on the treadmill and a movie is too long for that.

5. Candles or Diffusers?
Neither, really. At home I use incense after my cat does her business.cute cat hanging out

How has your weekend been? Can you believe it’s August already?!


August’s Challenge Pack Special is Shaun T’s T25-the program and Shakeology for $180. I reviewed T25 here.
