As 2010 comes to a close, I'd like to share a few of my favorite beauty products.
- CARGO Essential Palette in Cool/Neutral
This palette means that I can still look decent even when I've only gotten 3 hours of sleep, and can barely keep my eyes open. It's a lifesaver. The colors are nice and neutral, and I always bring it with me when I travel.
- Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
The packaging is ADORABLE (although it does make it difficult to use up every little last bit)! The Eden color is nice to throw on even without eyeshadow because it brightens up the whole eye area!
- MAC Prep + Prime SPF 50
I always wear sunscreen on my face, but have had a hard time finding one that doesn't make my face greasy. I loved Shiseido's SPF 55 lotion, but it was discontinued this year. The replacement: MAC Prep + Prime with SPF 50. And I love the glittery black tube!
What were your favorite beauty products of 2010?
"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"
- Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian and sub-2:12 marathoner
You know what it's like you really LIKE a guy, and he goes on and on about how you don't trust him? And then you convince yourself you should trust him, but then find out he's a total jerk who couldn't keep a promise to save his life, and isn't open and honest? And then afterwards, you're really mad at him, but you're mostly mad at yourself for not being strong and just cutting them out of your life, because you knew keep down that he was kind of a loser? Yeah. That was me this week.
This weekend, I decided to be strong. I decided to let out some frustration, chill with my homies, and and prove to myself that I'm strong. Yesterday, I ran 9 cathartic miles with a friend yesterday, and decided to suck it up and run 8 miles on the trail with friends today. They were hard runs. It was cold, and long, and difficult. But I did it.
Anyone else decide to be strong today?
