Stuff I'm loving (and not-so-much) this month?
♥ Jillian Michaels workout DVDs. OK, so I've loved her workouts for a while now, but I've been stacking workouts together and am actually seeing definition on my arms and shoulders.
✘ Granted some of my tops are now fitting a bit snugger in those exact areas. Nothing like feeling a bit Hulk-ish when you put on a blouse, cross your arms and feel like you're busting out seams.
♥ I've been eating overall healthier whole foods over the last few months and cutting drastically back on the junk. I'm now a quinoa junkie and use it in place of rice in many recipes.
✘ Unfortunately my appetite is still about the same (i.e., a bottomless pit), which means though I am eating healthier, I am still eating way more than my share to see any sort of difference in my body. I foresee painful attempts at habit-changing coming up ...
♥ These leopard print loafers of mine (last worn on the blog here). They're so easy to slip on and go with pretty much everything.
✘ These leopard print loafers of mine. Fantastic for walking around in, not for taking walks in. My heels are a bit mangled.
♥ Remember when I previously wrote that under-eye correcter was The Fix for my dark circles? Well, I've got a new fix that does not require a corrector then concealer over it by Make Up Forever. It's concealer, but one I can apply with my ring finger and be done with, and it'll stay and stay.
✘ Unfortunately nothing short of a Hollywood makeup team (and Photoshop) can make my circles go completely away, but I'm inching closer and closer to not having people randomly telling me how tired I look.
