A Quick Hello!

Hey there! I’m still not feeling 100% today but I am feeling much better than late Sunday/early Monday.

Today I just wanted to drop in this vlog I posted over the weekend:

If anyone is looking for a pretty neutral lipstick for fall I can HIGHLY recommend the Milani Pretty Natural lip color in shade #43.

This lipstick has serious lasting power. I can make it through a meal and it will still be on. Plus it’s not drying like most long lasting lipsticks!

On  a running note, you may remember about a week ago I posted about having a heart to heart with myself during a long run. I’ll be writing all about that tomorrow! (Nothing bad!)

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Do you prefer lipsticks, glosses, something else or nothing at all? I didn’t wear lipstick for a really long time. Now I still don’t wear it a lot during the week but I always wear it on the weekends!

    I hardly ever wear lipstick – mostly due to the fact that I had when it rubs off on things. I really like the Baby Lips tinted chapstick by Maybelline (in Cherry Me). It makes your lips super soft and adds just a bit of color.

      I love tinted chapsticks! I haven’t tried the Baby Lips one, but I looove all of the Burts Bees ones! 😀

    I can’t wait to read your heart to heart during your long run. I’ve never been one for lipstick, and I usually only wear chapstick. It’s so dry out here and I’m used to the Florida humidity.

      For a very long time I used to only wear chapstick! During the week I usually wear chapstick instead of lipstick. I have a Burts Bees one on my desk that is coconut flavored – it’s delicious! hhaha

    I don’t wear lipstick lol

    Sorry your under the weather, sending good vibes and I hope you get better quickly.

    Long run is the perfect time to have a heart to heart. I have those weekly with myself. Then again sitting on the beach with a beer was a great time to have a heart to heart as well.

      Richard, have you ever considered it? A great lipstick can pull your whole look together! 😀

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

    I’m usually a lipstick fan, but I think I’m going to be switching to liquid lipsticks soon. I like the idea of not leaving lipstick smudges behind on my water bottle and coffee cup.

      Ohh I hear you on that one! I’ve been using a couple of the NYX liquid lipsticks and I like them, but they can get a little flaky after a few hours 🙁 If you find one that lasts without getting flaky/crusty let me know!

    The closest I come to lipstick is tinted Burts Bees balm. I am addicted to lip balm – I can’t be anywhere without at least one stick of it! I do like the thought of having more color on my lips, but since I never wear anything, it makes me feel all dressed up and my family even takes notice when I do! I should really try to wear color more often. Hey, I just started using an eyebrow pencil this year (and I have very light blond eyebrows), so maybe there is still hope for me. haha!

      I love all of Burts Bees lip products!

      Hahaha I don’t do ANYTHING to my eyebrows! :-O I let them go au natural. I have been thinking about having them waxed but honestly they don’t bother me too much. Sometimes I feel self conscious about them when I am around someone with really well shaped eyebrows though!
