  1. So I haven't been online in ages, but some friends and I signed up for the DC ROC Race in August. ROC = Ridiculous Obstacle Course. It sounded like something NFers could enjoy so thought I'd share. And if you wanna meet up after, PM me :-)
  2. Thanks! Trying. Couple weeks left to really go for it :-)
  3. Yum. I may steal some of those ideas, lol. I told my mom I'd cook, but now I'm blanking on what to make haha. What else do you put in the lobster salad? That sounds lovely.
  4. RE haircut - go to a salon and ask. I feel your pain on this because my stylist of like 8 years passed away, and I'm having a heck of a time trying to find a new person. With my old person I'd say, "do whatever you want" and it ALWAYS looked good... I didn't know what she did or any terms, so to find someone new is kinda hard :-\ Another option is to check out hair magazines, find pics of someone w/ a similar face shape and a cut you like and bring the pic w/ you when you get your hair cut. If you get a haircut you don't love, don't worry... it'll grow back!
  5. Well last week was a cruddy week. Work stress won out over getting healthy, blah, and I didn't reach any of my goals at all. Took a weekend trip to Chicago, too, that did nothing to help the cause. Back today. On track today. Grocery tonight for food (my fridge is nearly empty). Gym (strength training) at lunch. Gym after work for the treadmill since it's raining outside.
  6. Lol I I was reading an article that said: "In general, BB creams tend to be more preventative, said Alexis Wolfer, editor of TheBeautyBean.com, and CC creams more corrective. So while a BB cream will likely have anti-aging elements and treat breakouts, a CC cream will focus on existing issues. She added that CC creams tend to be lighter than BB creams, which might make them a good choice for warmer weather, even for BB cream loyalists." So I guess there's that :-)
  7. I can't believe it's already May! This week is going average so far. Short on steps Monday, barely made my daily goal yesterday, will spend the rest of the week trying to make up for Mon. Food = bad. Corework = not bad, did lots of plank in yoga on Monday. I'm realizing that week 3 is when the will power starts to fade, so it'll be good to keep checking in to stay accountable. Just need to keep reminding myself that every choice should support my big life goals, and one cheat now plus one cheat tomorrow plus a lot of cheats on weekens adds up.... gotta keep my tail in line.
  8. LMAO just say "i love your make up" and ask what they use! I'm so used to people, guys and girls alike, saying "you have beautiful eyes" that it doesn't freak me out when people stare anymore. I love the compliments :-) One of my coworkers keeps telling me I need to teach her how to put on eyeliner, but we've never actually sat down and done it. Eyebrows... as long as they're neat, in my opinion. I pluck to the natural arch, don't fill in with anything. Maybe if they start thinning out I'll consider it.
  9. I get eyeliner and mascara from the drugstore because you're supposed to toss them most frequently. I also don't mind getting lipstick from the drug store if I'm playing with colors.
  10. I missed that first Tuesday and this Monday so won't claim anything. But I did learn that I can jog faster than I thought during my intervals, so will keep up with that
  11. Totally agree to play/practice plenty until you figure out what you like best. I personally like Too Faced eye shadows most, but I also have Nars, Cargo, Urban Decay, Revlon. Shadows and liners are the most fun to play with cuz of all the colors and effects you can create. I also line my whole eye and then give a little flick at the edge for the cat eye, and then I clean up anything that looks messy with a q-tip. That's how I make sure the cat eye thing is perfect, too. That took YEARS of practice (started in middle school, theater make up yay) and now it's super quick to put that on. My skin/make up routine is pretty simple: wash w Cetaphil cleanser, wipe w Clarins cleansing lotion, moisturize (shiseido), sunblock (in the market for a new one), eyeliner (Revlon colorstay liquid), mascara (Maybelline full & soft), shadow (too faced), lipstick/colored lip balm (nars/clinique/covergirl/whatever). Sometimes I wear blush if I'm feeling kinda drab. I was reading on MSN somewhere that higher contrasts (lips/eyes/eyebrows) make people think that a person is younger, so they're good areas to play up to show femininity.
  12. Yay green shimmery sounds pretty! Lol make up is fun to play with. Experiment with one side of your face and see how it compares to you au natural, and you'll be able to figure out what stuff you like playing with (eyes, lips, etc). Obviously do this in your spare time and not on your way to work :-p It's amazing what some eye liner does for making eyes pop or making you look awake. Do you have a sephora or department store near you? I'd tell a lady exactly what you're thinking... natural, easy, feminine and get them to do a little make over. You can make a big impact with little product, if you take the time to play around and figure out what works for you for the results you want. Also, and I dunno if it's reasonable for your job, heels/wedges = instant feminine kick :-)
  13. Hazel eyes are so pretty, definitely play them up! Purples and greens look good too when you want to add color, or for evening :-)
  14. Hehe love the title, totally relate. I'm a guy's girl through and through... but like to play with make up and such so my friend has dubbed me "The Girliest Tomboy She Knows" lol. What's your skin type? Cetaphil cleansers are good for pretty much all skin types. And don't forget sunscreen! I don't wear powder/foundation so I can't help with that part. But as for other make up I think the most basic things to make you look more polished = eye liner, mascara (i'd use black/brown to pump up the volume of your long lashes), curled lashes for sure, lipstick/colored lip balm. And a touch of blush if you're looking dead. I personally like a neutral shimmery eye shadow, too. I'm Filipina, so I use a coppery color which is almost the same as my skin tone, so natural-ish but has the shimmer (not sparkles) to catch the light and draw attention to my eyes while not looking over the top. Soft pinks look pretty, too, but find what works with your skin tone.
