Good afternoon my darlings. I know I got my scale back but I kind of enjoy the afternoon waffle. So for now I am going to keep it up. Today, I feel really good about myself. I didn’t overindulge this weekend, which is always key. And I remembered to log in my calories.
On weekends especially I really forget to do that. It’s not like I don’t think calories count on the weekends (although really how awesome would that be?) I just tend to be away from my desk on the weekends and it doesn’t always occur to me to write them down when I am not at my desk for long stretches of time.
But if Friday’s weigh in taught me anything it was that I need to be more vigilant.
I suspect my vigilance will fade after the shock wears off (maybe two weeks) but hopefully by then I will be back on track. Friday I painted my nails for the first time in a few weeks and despite no garden work this weekend they already look beat down.
It’s this polish. I love the color. It is this reddish brown color that looks better in person than on camera. It has a slight sheen and sparkle to it without actually being glitter. I break it out every fall. And every fall I apply it, it looks fantastic on the day I apply it and then the next day it goes down hill fast. I either need to find a top coat that can seal it in or I need to find this color in a more reliable formula.
Every year I try it, and every year I am disappointed.
But seriously, I always get excited by the color. If anyone has any suggestions I’d love to hear them.
But as disappointing as the nails were (and most of them broke off this weekend to which was sad), I did find out something fabulous. Glossy Box had a sneak peek released.Well two actually. They are for the October box. The first item they had a sneak peek of was the Generation Skin Ultra Violet Purple Brightening mask. That’s right, one of my favorite masks is going to be in the October box. And Sneak peek number two? Translucent powder from Ciate London.
I know, it’s like they peeked into my empties bin and asked themselves, what is it Mimsy likes? So that was fun to find out. If you aren’t a member of Glossy Box, you can get a discount on your first box with the code BEAUTYTALES. With that you get your first box for $16. And it is going to be a good one this month. They also have a Rodial Limited Edition Box set to be available October 22nd so if you are a fan of the brand and interested, you can go to the Glossy site and get put on the notification list for that. I’ve tried a sheet mask from them which I liked, but I have to confess, I don’t actually know all that much about Rodial. Although I have to say the fact that it is the Dragon’s Blood collection does make me curious. I know, my fantasy roots are showing.
But I was super excited for the Generation Clay Mask. Now if only I could work out this nail polish issue. Do you think if I put it in the empties bin the powers that be will notice? Possibly not. I already got two items I used up and want to use again coming in a box this month and that may be the limit. Maybe I’ll just call that plan B and when I take my car for it’s weekly spin around town to make sure everything is still working I’ll stop in at the drug store and see what there seasonal selections look like. Surely someone has this color or something to help this color.
