Shopping is my Cardio


Famous words from Carrie B

Summer has finally arrived! While I do exercise regularly I wanted to try some new things to change up my routine and work different parts of my body.

I had dedicded to try a new work out DVD. I had never bought one before but the one I chose was well recommended.

On the way to the shop to buy the DVD I passed by 5th ave...and picked up a few things ^^


Walked past the M.A.C store...
Blame the influxes of posts on MAC's newest collection "In the Groove" I had some doubts about the blush "Happy Together" but all the images were enough for me to run out get this before it was sold out


Happy Together by M.A.C


When I first saw this I was like I don't know... it looks brown... I have 1 brown blush and that's kinda enough for me but this is NOT BROWN. It is a gorgeous PEACH

When applied to the skin it sheers outs even though it is nicely pigmented for a mineral blush.
The more matte side is a peach with light undertones of brown, the shimmery side reminds me of a peachy version of by candle light! If you are trying to save money get this! the highlight is gorgeous on it's own. When swirled, I am gushing at the beautiful peach shimmery shade it creates.

Amazing for those with yellow/golden undertones!

Then passed by Sephora...

It seems everyone on my blogroll owns this blush!

Lover by Illamasqua


Peastel peach with just enough pink in it to not look straight like creamcile orange. When you need a highly pigmented matte blush, Illamasqua and NARS are a close race.
So pretty!!

I also bought a new brush - sorry I forgot the photo: Sephora Platinum Airbrush 55
This is always sold out so when I saw it in stock I grabbed one, have not tried it yet

I finally made it to the shop and picked this up, anyone try it ??
Recommended by Lollipop26 but this also had almost 2000 good reviews on Amazon!
Not really believing the 20 lbs in 30 days... but 3-5 would be amazing!

Was going to grab new sneakers and water bottle but it started to pour ( big surprise) so I rushed home to try this, only to find out my computer cant read this >< !! ugh need some tech help

Anyone else attempting to shape up a bit more for summer?
