Well Again + Make Up Deal

12 Jan

Well friends, I am about at 85% wellness. I say 85, because I still have very little appetite which means I get tired really easily because I’m not yet eating enough. My weight is going back up, but to a healthy level, I think. I’ll see what it stabilizes to by my weigh-in on Sunday.

But I am disinfecting my house and moving around and feeling like a live human being again!

Now onto the deal… Last year, Jonathan got me an awesome make up palette. And while it was not perfectly matched up like the one Alysha got me this year, it was pretty decent.  The one he got me had 100 colors, and is by E.L.F. Slickdeals is doing a sale on their 32-color palette for 2 dollars: http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/67158/target-elf-32pc-eyeshadow-palette?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SlickdealsnetFP+%28SlickDeals.net+Frontpage%29

If you like a bunch of colors, decent quality, and a cheap price, you really can’t beat this!

I’ll let you guys know if I see a good deal on the Ulta “Perfect Match” that I got this year. 🙂


Regional/Seasonal Sodas

3 Nov

I have this tendency to fall in love with soft drinks that are sold regionally or seasonally or just do not last.

This started when I was kid, and my mom bought a bottle of Crystal Pepsi. Here’s a commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tign09D5IgE

Now, do not ask me why I liked it so much. We didn’t drink soda at home often, so I didn’t have much to compare it to. But I loved it. And then it went off the market.

I also loved Barq’s Red Cream Soda… which I randomly find in random little restaurants on fountain, but can almost never find in store.

When I was 13, we went to Pakistan and I got to taste Pakola, which I can sometimes find in Indian grocery stores.

And of course, going to USC (south carolina.. in case you thought for a second that I would ever live in California.. hah)  I became familiar with Cheerwine.. a delicious cherry flavored soft drink.

I also enjoy the cranberry flavors that come out around Christmas.

Anyway, there isn’t much point to this post except since I love things I can never find, I frequently have cravings for things that I can not get.

Unless I post about it on facebook and someone who loves me sees that post and send me 22 lbs of cheerwine via UPS. (Yes. This is a true story. It was like a magic fairy appeared and granted my wish! And by magic fairy, I mean older sister.)


Thanks, Saira! 🙂


Anyone else have something that’s hard to find that they love?
