March 16,2015 I decided to get back on track  with losing weight ! 2 weeks prior my family and I had our pictures taken . When we went to go pick it up , I was very sadden . How could I have possibly let myself gain so much weight ? Well I had to put a stop to it . My starting weight was 205 . I currently weigh 195 now yes I know not a lot. I will say this I put in put in a lot of work . I work out every day . Except for Sundays . I eat very clean and healthy . I stop eating carbs past 4 . Although the scale isn’t moving as fast enough losing inches has given me motivation . Started with my waist being 40 to a 36 🙌 . I’m so excited to share this journey with you .  

 

Drug Store Junkie 

When it comes to make up I like to keep it simple and my pockets happy . I love make up but it can be quiet expensive. I’m pretty certain that’s the reason why all of my make up are drug store make up . I don’t own high end make up except my Mac concealer that I purchased 3 years ago . You can look fabulous with out breaking the bank . Listed below  are the items I can’t go without . I pretty much use these items daily. 

  1. Foundation : Revlon 24 hr color stay 
  2. Concealer : Mac nw45 , LA pro girl concealer HD “Chestnut” 
  3. Lips : Nyx butter gloss “tiramisu” 
  4. Brows : elf brow kit “dark”

After years of trying products,  drug store products makes my pocket happy ! I can’t begin to tell you how expensive make up can be . But then again if your reading this you already have an idea . I hope these products help you in some way .
