Food Files: Green Smoothie

Mmm, doesn't that just scream yummy!!!!  Whenever I start feeling icky and sluggish, in addition to making sure I'm taking vitamins and exercising, I also tend to jump start things by blending and juicing.  This green smoothie is one of my go-to drinks that's quick to make.  Now, it may look nasty but, it really does taste good.  And, it's chock full of some really healthy stuff!

I'm Still Here

Wow!!!!!  Talk about falling off the map!  I want to just simply say....

MY BAD!!!!!

My bad for just totally flaking on posting, making videos, and interacting with you all.  Thanks to those who didn't cut me from their following list!  I appreciate it.

Long story short, tendinitis in the ankle can really bring you down!  This injury, an overuse injury that I've been dealing with for several months now, has really done a number on me.  Not being able to exercise/run has killed my mood.  That, coupled with work stuff and just overall life stress has had me in a funky mood!

But, even tho the tendinitis has not completely healed, I am feeling a lot better!  I've stopped wearing the brace (which hurt in my opinion) and I'm finally starting to believe that one day this annoying injury will actually go away (there were some days where I just felt like it would never get better).

So, with this new surge of happiness, I'm finally getting back into the swing of things.  So, even tho this is just an "update/where have you been" post, I wanted to let you know to stay tuned.  I have some things on the horizon (I promise).

Thanks again everyone!

So, I finally got around to playing with the Urban Decay Naked palette again.  I don't know about you but, I have a habit of buying makeup and forgetting about it after a while.  But, when I finally get around to playing in my stash, I get too excited about the "rediscovery"!  Go figure!  Anyway, here's a neutral look with a bold lip.  Enjoy!

Zoya Summertime Summer 2011 - Areej

I am in love with this color.  I promise to step out of my pink and purple nail polish zone later...just not today!  Zoya Areej ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is another polish from the Summertime Collection.  For me, this is a nice pink that's bold, but not too obscene.
