Post 4.1 mile run lunch. I am forever on an egg kick, so as per usual I whipped up some veggie scrambled eggs. I use two eggs and a splash of milk, then add my veggies in the pan and mix it all together. Why dirty up another dish just to mix it together when you can put it in the pan all at once? Makes sense to me. I added some garlic salt to my tomato slices (and ate one before this photo was snapped) and steamed some broccoli in the microwave and voila! I am le chef.
Rewind to my run:
4.1 easy and some strength training (kinda) after.
3 x 10 push ups
15/15/20 reverse crunches
50 squats (body weight)
1 minute plank
I should do that more often. And not just say I should 😉
Since it is Beauty Tuesday (yeah, yeah, remember those!?), I figured I would share some of my October favourites with you. I generally use the same products day to day, but some things only pop up in stores when the fall season hits. Naturally, I have to buy more than one because I love them so much.
On to the favourites!
Tim Horton’s Pumpkin Spice Tea: I had a hell of a time finding this last year. Every Tim’s I went to was sold out, and one of the employees felt so bad for me (after telling me a lady literally ordered ten CASES of the tea) he gave me the four tea bags that were left for store use. My mom actually picked this up and got two boxes. Thank you, mom. Thank you. The struggle is real.
Bath & Body Works Aspen Caramel Woods Body Lotion: You can’t really tell in the picture, but I squeezed every last drop out of this sucker. It smells sweet and very fall-like. Bonus, it comes in other fall scents which I am currently working through right now.
LUSH Lemony Flutter: This cuticle butter can be used on any dry spots you have. I use it on my cuticles, lips, and any dry patches of skin that pop up. It smells like sweet lemons and is super moisturizing!
Bath & Body Works Pumpkin Caramel Latte Candle: And every other fall scented candle of their’s that I have. So good. You can’t go wrong!
MAC Blush in Warm Soul: I would describe this as a peach bronze colour with warm undertones and a hint of shimmer. Look at me sounding like a beauty guru. I’ve honestly had this blush for over two years, and yes that’s not exactly hygienic of me, but I can’t let it go! It is my go-to colour and pairs well with a lot of make up looks… Like the only one I have.
Cover Girl Flamed Out Mascara: My only gripe with this mascara is that I wish the wand itself was longer. It is quite short, but it has a cool almost hour glass shaped brush that grab onto lashes and add volume and definition.
And in the spirit of Halloween, my sister and I carved pumpkins last night. She specifically told me NOT to carve a cat, so I hid it from her until the last possible second before revealing… Meow. A cat. It’s no surprise since the last pumpkin I carved was a cat face. Then she had to one up me and did an owl. Show off 😉
