it's march which means spring is supposed to be here this month which is supposed to mean the end of this bullshit winter but mother nature has other ideas because she a fucking douche canoe and i woke up yesterday morning to -29 degree weather. still though, i'm going to be positive and i even updated my blog layout because i'm ready for the sun to jizz itself all up in my face.
to kick off my excitement for spring, i decided to throw together a few of my favorite things:
// HTC One. my lifeline. if you're a total geek like me, don't try to contain your boner because this will give you major bonerisms all the live long day. if you ever get your hands on this phone, i guarantee that you'll love it so much you'll want to have sex with it. i've always been an HTC girl and whether you're an apple or android lover, you can't deny the gorgeousness of this phone. it has a weight that feels good in your hands, the screen is incredibly crisp and sharp, it's blazing fast, the camera is the best on the market and it's everything you ever need in a phone.
// giorgio armani concealers. pictured here are your answers to the one beauty ailment that will make any woman look like a bag of ass: dark circles. i introduce to you giorgio armani's magic wonderfulness in a tube: the master corrector (orange but also comes in pink) and high precision retouch (concealer).
i have asian skin with olive undertones so my blemishes and dark circles have a brownish tinge to them. do you know how embarrassing it is to walk around looking like dirty sanchez all the live long day? i spent years searching for the perfect concealer to hide the dirty sanchez on my face but all other concealers (and i've tried them all) were too pink or too peachy and always looked unnatural; basically, they were concealers made for white people's skin (pink/blue undertones) but nothing for us yellow folks....until i discovered this. the orange corrector neutralizes the brown and the concealer, which is about a shade and a half lighter than my natural skin tone, lightens and hides it. in other words: gorgeousness will ensue.
// organic argan oil. you know how much argan oil gives me a major boner. for $19, this holy grail product saved my skin years ago when it freaked out, it's what erased the fine lines around my eyes and it's what keeps my skin fresh, beautiful and hydrated. i slather this shit on all day errday like a porn star and feel gorgeous.
// bite lipsticks. guys, get ready to wet your panties. behold my newest discovery: natural, food-grade lipsticks by Bite Beauty. i just discovered these over the weekend and they give me the ultimate boner. i never wore lipsticks because i've never found one that fared well with my super dry, senstive lips and whenever i put on any lip color, my lips always felt nasty within the hour; like i was wearing tape on my lips...until these. yesterday i wore them at home for 5 hours and not only did i forget that i was even wearing lipstick, but my lips were so hydrated and soft the entire time. made from organic ingredients (castor oil, argan oil, manuka honey and a bunch of other awesome ingredients), they're free of all those gross chemicals the color never fades or bleeds. as soon as i found them, i brought all of lipsticks back to sephora and traded them in for bite lipsticks. pictured above are Pepper (a dusty rose for every day use) and Zin (a gorgeous berry). i blended these two colors together to give me a perfect match to my skin and gives my lips an extra pop. i love this so much that every time i look in the mirror, i want to make out with myself.
// martina gebhardt lip balm. after many years and thousands of dollars spent searching for the perfect lip balm (and i've tried everything from la mer to bobbi brown to jo malone etc), this is the king of everything. all natural and super hydrating, this has saved my lips during this brutal winter. when i used other lip balms, i'd have to reapply like, every hour but with this one, about three times a day only (after i eat) and my lips feel supple, moist and hydrated.
// body beast. you all know weight lifting gives me a major boner. this is the second round of body beast that i'm doing and i love every second of it. body beast is all lifting with one cardio session each week which means i get to wear my douchey workout tank tops and lift like a bro errday. bro workouts for life!
// jaybird wireless headphones. i hate cords of any kind. these are the best headphones in the history of ever and although pricey ($99), not only is the sound quality amazing, but playback and volume controls are right on the ear pieces so no fumbling around with your phone and they're guaranteed sweat proof (legit too, i had to send in my husband's and they replaced them for free no questions asked).
what are some of your favorite things?
don't forget about humpalicious confessions wednesdays! ryan wants you to link up and hump the shit out of his face!
ladies, meet jess from the blog Living on Sweet Tea. that picture alone makes me all kinds of jealous because this bitch lives in florida where the sun shines all the live long day and i'm stuck in this fucking goddamn frozen tundra that is toronto.
i love florida. so does jess and when she writes these amazing things about florida and why she loves her state, it makes me hate love her even more. but living in florida has it's pitfalls, right jess? i mean, it's not every day that you have to throw rocks at gators because they're in the way of catching some good fish. ok fine, i'll give you kudos for not running away screaming like a pussy because that's totally what i would have done. good for you for being all crocodile dundee, standing your ground and telling that gator to suck it.
jess is the type of girl i could be friends with in real life - laid back, loves the outdoors, relaxed and loves wearing flip flops instead of heels. ok, STFU already, we know you get to frolick in the sand all day while i'm sitting here in my coat and scarf and winter boots AT MY DESK and it's 1:39pm and i haven't undressed since i got in at 9am this morning because it's too goddamn cold to take anything off. you know i love you but super jealous you don't have to deal with this winter bullshit.
so what are you bitches waiting for? go stalk jess now!
