Weekend Update

The magnolia tree right outside my bedroom window. It blooms these super pretty pink/white flowers, but sadly they only last about a week. When the flowers start to fall, it reminds me of What Dreams May Come.
Froyo trips are my favorite. Mango mochi is my favorite topping, and cupcake froyo + fruity pebbles tastes like heaven! ♥
I finally got my mockingjay pin!!! Eeep! I am so so excited to see the movie, only a few days left!
I've recently become obsessed with chamomile tea. It's my current favorite, I love making it after a long day and just relaxing with a warm cup of tea. It really is a treat.
My little nightly routine...
...and taking embarrassing photos before bed. *wink*

News from the Week
- I've been really successful with taking my camera everywhere and documenting "daily life" this past week. At first I thought it was going to be a bit of a chore to remember to keep my camera on hand, but not at all! I've really enjoyed using my camera a lot and love having so many photos to share.

- I'm getting back into the habit of making small, healthy changes in my life. Less soda, more water/vitamin water/green tea/chamomile tea. Smaller portions. A yogurt a day (I read somewhere that this is really healthy). Drinking veg+fruit juice and making smoothies. Yep. :)

- I'm thinking about doing a "Favorite/Least Favorite Products of the Month" post at the end of every month, just talking about new products (beauty, skin care, makeup, etc) that I've tried out. Kind of like a big review post.....what do you guys think? Sound interesting?

I hope everyone has been having a great weekend! I'm really excited for next week....a lot of fun things planned! XO. mandyy

  3. I like your idea of a favorite products of the month, you could do other stuff to though, like favorite things of the month. Recommend books and foods and other things that you've discovered or just feel like they suit the month. :)

    1. I got mine at Hot Topic, if you want one too. I think it was $10 or $12 and it's really good quality.

  5. That tree is so pretty, we have one similar in the garden in work and it is gorgeous when it is out, but annoyingly doesn't last very long at all.
    I love the idea of favourite/least favourite posts x

  11. i think a products post would be really cool. I always love to know about different products people use

  12. Your mockingjay pin came! So exciting!

    I like the idea of a review post at the end of the month - I love finding out about new products. Could you maybe experiment with some liquid eyeliner?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Absolutely! I've been wanting to try a new liquid liner (I currently use E.L.F.) and a gel liner. I'll definitely do a post on those soon.

  13. I'm not really into make-up that much but I would be keen for one huge post on your beauty routine ie. the products you use :)

    Also, just wondering... is vitamin water really that healthy?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That sounds like a great idea!

      I know Vitamin Water is healthier than soda, but I'll have to do a little research to see if it's super healthy. I'm horrible when it comes to drinking regular water, haha. It's so much easier if it has a flavor, so I've been drinking those to help my get my water in.

  19. The magnolia trees outside of your window are beautiful! What a great view. I know what you mean about getting in the habit of taking your camera everywhere you go. I'm working on that. Great idea on reviewing different items. We could use some help with that.
    Happy Monday

  22. great post. [: i try to lug my camera around too, but i mostly fail.

    it's awesome to hear about making healthier choices.. i try (sometimes not as successfully as others..) to do the same everyday.

    vitamin water is full of sugar, but a little healthier than soda, for sure. if i have a drink like vitamin water or another other kind of juice (because who doesn't like a little sweetness?) i will pour some in my water bottle. it waters it down substantially, but you get more water in your system with a little flavor [:
    plus.. you'll spend less on juice! [:

    good luck in your health venture. sorry about the unsolicited advice. [;

  23. I think a monthly Hot and Not column featuring product/movie/book/tv critiques sounds like a great idea. Particularly makeup/skincare as your skin and makeup is always so immaculate! Good work making healthy changes. I'm trying to as well. I find sparkling water is a good substitute for soda and a good treat after exercise. Am also trying to not eat carbs at dinner time and to remember to eat breakfast. Easier said than done!
