Mmm Have You Heard?

too bad it's still nottttttt quite affordable for this chick.
"Dressed in a pink leather dress from the collection, which retails for £199 – about a tenth of the price a leather dress from the Versace mainline might cost – Donatella laid on a celebrity personal appearance as payback for her fans' loyalty."

Beauty Lovers on a Budget-

if you haven't checked out pretty city lately, do it immediately.
in honor of breast cancer awareness month, a ton of salons and spas are offering $31 services in october.
i just booked a $31 haircut with emily at salonO65 and two back-to-back "mini highlights" appointments with ashton at blueberry moon aveda salon for $62. hurry and book your appointments because you have to use it before october's up. eeee! totally geeking out about this.

Sunday Night Confessional

i'm in the middle of an 11 day cleanse (currently on day 8) and it's actually not bad... well, 65% of the time.
for the majority of the time, you can eat normal (healthy) food - you just have to substitute one to two meals a day with this organic, gluten free protein shake drink. the other 35% of the time is spend on the hardcore back-to-back cleanse days. i have to drink this cleanse powder/water mixture 4 times a day and am only allowed to eat celery and an organic apple. eek. i already did part 1 of the foodless cleanse.. tomorrow and tuesday are the last time i'll have to do it. thank god for that.
i finallyyyy finished love the one you're with.
i really need to make more time for reading. now moving on to chelsea handler's are you there vodka? it's me, chelsea. next in the queue: persuasion by jane austin.
i was super sick this weekend and literally did not go out once.
took of work friday, stayed in the burbs and hung with my seester friday night, was a lazy bum saturday, went back to the burbs today with lisa and her family for some bears vs. packers (ehh) and greek food. one one hand, i kind of feel like i wasted my weekend, not having gone out or really done anything at all. on the other hand, i feel a million times healthier than i did on friday. and i'm not allowed to drink on this cleanse anyway. :)
can't wait for denner at el jardin this week!!
miss my betches.
backtracking to chelsea - did you know they're turning her book into a tv show??
i'll watch it.

Something More

Flashback Friday

feather pens
which will always hold a special place in my heart because they of course remind me of clueless, one of my favorite movies of all time. i was actually going to use clueless for my flashback friday, but when i checked the archives, i realized that would make me a flashback repeater - slightly less offensive than an outfit repeater.

That 15K...

days 3 and 4 of training.
i ran for 45 minutes without stopping or walking once yesterday! this may not sound like a big accomplishment, but i've never gone more than 15 minutes without tossing a little walk in there - bible. so i'm proud!

if you run and you have an iphone, you must download the free imapmyrun app. it's seriously amazing.

Sunday (Monday) Night Confessional

i'm signing up to run the hot chocolate 15k in november.
i've never ran anything over a 5k so i'm kind of scared! but excited because i've been wanting to run a race for a while. lisa's going to help train me. woop!
lisa and i had our fams over for labor day today.
thinking our brothers were going to come, we make a million pounds of chicken tacos in the slow cooker. dad also made chili and tamales. so it sounds like we will be eating leftovers for weeks.
went to church for the first time yesterday in like 4 months.
sorry, god. :(
i have two birthday parties to attend next weekend.
i'll be going to bed at 7pm next sunday.
sadly, that's basicallyyyyy all i have to report on this little recap.
i'll try to make my life a little more interesting for next week.

happy music monday
who gon stop me
