Saturday Link Love: Season 2, Ep 15


Saturday Link Love: Season 2, Ep 15

This week I made a huge fitness breakthrough, in that I actually did work out a reasonable number of times. I was way too lazy over the winter and it just left me feeling kind of blah. But I started going to yoga again, lifted weights (just one day this week, but hey, let’s not get too carried away here) and went for some long-ish walks with the dog. Now that I’ve told you all this, I’ll have to keep it up so I don’t feel like a huge slacker!

I have a bad habit of getting sidetracked from my fitness program, and even when I’m focused it’s easy to do all that great work for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this week Mimi G. wrote a great post on getting/staying in shape, which I’ll be looking back to (probably frequently) for inspiration.

In the spirit of getting healthy, I guess I should probably try eating a vegetable every once in a while – so I’ll definitely be trying this salad recipe from Liana Beauty. Unlike her I love avocados, so this looks delicious to me.

In a slight departure from the normal product info, the British Beauty Blogger is calling out the latest advertising offense in beauty shaming – this time it’s Veet. Because I guess summer won’t inspire enough hair-removal purchases without implying that a) hairy legs make you less of a woman and b) obviously the only reason to care about your appearance is for a man. I guess we know what brand is off my to-buy list.

Some more news from the UK comes from Vivianna Does Makeup in her review of the new Bourjois Velvet Rouge liquid lipsticks. I’ve been lusting for these since they were first announced, and well… this isn’t curing me of it.

I have been cured of my need to open up my sample of Tarte Lights Camera Lashes after reading the review of it from Brightest Bulb in the Box. Aside from the helpful info (I have so many mascara samples that any help prioritizing is appreciated), I love reading Robyn’s posts because she’s hands-down the funniest blogger I’ve seen.

Last but not least, if you missed the news earlier this week – I got selected to be in the top 10 finalists for the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards this year! If you go check out the site, you can see all the finalists. As a bonus, you can see the world’s most awkward video thumbnail on my intro video ;-)

      Thanks! Today I went for a three mile walk with the dog, and he got tired before I did, so that’s a good sign!
