What I Wear To Workout

Standard

The New:

I bought new workout clothes!  Reebok had a sale on their Workout Ready Racer Tanks (Sale: $14, Originally: $20).  So far I am loving this teal one and I’m so happy with how soft and comfortable it is!

Fitspo Of The Day:

Fooducate

Standard

I have become addicted to the fooducate app.  It rates food & beverage options based on how good they are for you.  For example, I found the Trader Joe’s Steamed Lentils that I’ve been eating lately & it is rated A- (a good source of Iron and Protein).  I also found that the chocolate almond milk that I’ve been drinking is rated C+ because of all the sugar it has in it.

Day #90 of Project 10 Pan

Standard

I made a purchase!  My holy grail liquid eyeliner is the Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner.  I found this in the early part of 2012 and haven’t found anything to beat it since.  However, I am still searching for the perfect pencil eyeliner.  I’ve decided to try the NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto.  I purchased it for $21.60 from Neiman Marcus with a coupon (Original Cost: $24).

Here is purchase #2!
