Week In Review – 9/19/16

Happy Monday, I thought I would start a new series akin to the week in pics, something easy something that helps you get to know me and something that will hopefully get you thinking about your own week in review. As always if you’re interested in following me on any of my social media platforms they are listed below:

Man this week has been rough, I ended up with an eye infection, it’s been very yucky, Steve’s been down with a cold and Francesca’s dealing with Fall allergy symptoms – all in all we’ve been the house of pestilence this week.
With that here’s a few categories I thought you might be interested in:
What are you reading – I still haven’t picked up any new books, for the first half of the week it was all I could do to focus on my computer at work, once home we’ve been working in the garden and then passing out and going to bed so……maybe this next week I’ll have time to pick one up.
What are you listening to – I feel this might be a really boring post this week, I haven’t been listening to anything because my eyes are so hyper sensitive to anything my senses are too overwhelmed to take on any additional information.

What are you watching – All right if I dig in to last weekend, I did watch my traditional vast amounts of 9/11 coverage. I even found a few new shows and two that I haven’t seen in awhile so I felt very educated as the weekend came to a close.

What are you working on – this week aside from getting better, it’s been all garden all the time. We had dirt delivered earlier this week, we’re finishing up the walkway, I’ve ordered my winter crop and am waiting with bated breath for it to be delivered, and all in all I’m hoping to be fall/wintering down the yard within the next week or so – new post to come on that soon.
Weekly goals – as you can see these aren’t very different than last week – obviously things did not go well this week for me.
– again write one and update one post for each site

– Get the garden finished and planted

– walk the pups 3 times

– get the fall wardrobe out and start transitionining

food for the week/fitness goals -so I’m going to start a week late on my fit girls program – thank goodness it’s flexible. I have to clean out the fridge, plan what’s in there vs. what needs to be bought and get ready for next week to hit the ground running.

Beauty updates – so last week we went to the Sephora Holiday event and had a really good time, unfortunately I think that’s also where I got my eye infection. I do have to say I’m rather proud of myself, I didn’t pick up any makeup type products except for the new foundation, which I love and a few new eyelashes that I’m dying to try but for obvious reasons have not. Sigh – at least there’s next week.

Style update – this last week we’re going to call bummy chic – which meant I didn’t feel good, so I wore jeans and t-shirts to the office all week – I did receive a few comments from friends in the matter – one even alluded to a broken washer for the style dip. Needless to say I’ll be back on track next week – just in time for the last bits of Indian summer.

What did you really screw up this week – I guess the obvious response this week would be my eyes. I have been putting ointment below my lids 4 times a day for the last 5 days and have two more to go (sad face) I don’t really know that it was my mistake although I suppose I really should have checked the MUA’s brushes before she started diving into my makeover.

What did you do that was awesome – I the last week I have shoveled 4 cubic yards of dirt from my driveway to my planter boxes, and I am payin for it, man are we going to be tired. But I can see the finish line on the front yard and I’m truely excited that the finish line is in sight.

How’s the family – Steve update, his spider bite is clearing up nicely and shouldn’t leave a scar – it did scab over a few times and fall off but so far the new skin underneath looks ok. Francesca this week managed to pull a groin muscle during practice, so there’s been a lot of icing and stretching to get that back into shape, and just the other night she came home with a pretty decent black eye – she had taken a volleyball serve to the face – insert all the using your head puns here.

How are the dogs – pups are good, they’ve been hibernating with us all week long, and really loving the smells coming from the front yard. Organic compost/soil mixtures bring lots of lovely smells for all involved, I’m fairly certain that while the dog’s are loving it my neighbors probably hate me at the moment.

Until next week – XoXo – Sarah


Lipstick Obsession Part 6 – more duds 

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this weeks edition of my Lipstick Obsession. This week we’re working on a new batch of duds! If you’re interested in reading my other posts click below:

Part 5 – More love

Part 4 – Hates

Part 3 – Loves


I do have to say as we progress in this journey I am pleased that my dud pile is smaller than my love, although I have been rather picky about my colors so far, let’s just say there may be a whole host of duds as we get closer to the bottom of the pile.  This batch aside from the bottom color (Subtle Peony)  I just didn’t think the payout was there from the color itself…….

Nudestix – Flesh/Soul – this is a dual sided lip and cheek color pencil.  The colors swatch so beautifully and if you were in the market for an easy to pack travel duo this might be what you would reach for.  Even more so if you’re in the mood for a very natual look (which we know I’m not really the best with that) you might find this duo the best thing ever!  For me, iw was a little too nude and not enough bang for my buck.

Tarte – Park Ave Princess – I am on a Tarte kick at the moment, they’re new lippie stick collection is to die for.  Needless to say I was really excited when this came in a sample box from Sephora, alas it was not to be, the color is minimal on my lips at best, and even though the formula is nice and hydrating, I think I might actually get more of a glossy payout from my Burt’s bee’s Mango balm.

Sephora – Rouge Balm – Subtle Peony – This was the second of those impulse buys from Frannie’s prom look.  I really loved the swatch in the store, but when it oxidizes on my skin it’s just not pretty.  Don’t get me wrong there’s 10 more colors in the collection that I plan on at least looking at, but sadly, this color will go into the donate to the kiddo’s box.

have you tried any of these lippies? how did you fell about them?

Until Next time – XoXo – Sarah
