Miss Megan's Favorite Things

I blogged about some of my favorite things before, but it kind wasn't a good blog and I quit after a few things, so I thought I'd do it again.  If I was rich, or had a super famous blog I'd give something away.  But I am neither rich or a famous blogger, so therefore you can just read about my favorite things and maybe purchase them for yourself.  Trust me, I think they are awesome or I wouldn't be wasting my time telling you about them.

Julep Deep Clean 











This is my newest find.  I got it in my Julep Maven box (I'll get to that in a second).  This sells for $40.00 on their website. This is an excellent face cleaner.  It cleans all the make up off your face, literally.  It smells a little bit like furniture polish, but I actually kind of like it.

Back to the Julep Maven box, if you have 19.99 laying around every month this is a good investment.  You take a short quiz, they tell you what your style profile is.  Every month they send you a box with two nail polish colors (which retail $14 each) and some other type of goodies (one month I got a foot scrub, one month I got moisturizer, I got the Deep Clean last month, and an eye shadow palette this month).  You can choose to skip months, and you can customize your box.  You just have to remember to it around the 20th of each month.

Oh and guess what....there's a FREE CODE you can use to get your first box free!  So really check out their site.

Emi Jay Hair Ties (Or like hair ties)












This are literally the best!  They are very cute, first off.  You can wear them on  your wrist like a bracelet, which for someone that has to have a ponytail holder on their arm to survive, that is important.  Plus, the DO NOT leave a crease in my hair.  Also important as I pull my hair up 1,000,000 times a day.  You can also search these on eBay and get them pretty cheap.

 Eyes Lips And Face (E.L.F.) concealer and highlighter











This is my go to beauty product.  Seriously.  The best thing ever.  Seriously.  SERIOUSLY!!!!  You can get it at Target or from their website.  He is a concealer, and a good one and it says "highlighter".  What I do is use the concealer under my eyes and on unsightly blemishes (you know I don't get those often...ha).  Then I put two dots of the highlighter under my eyes, too, to give it a "pop".  But my favorite use is using the "highlighter" (the white stuff) as an eyeshadow primer.  It gives your eyeshadow a deeper hue, and it keeps it on ALL DAY.. ALL DAY PEOPLE!  ALL DAY!  Would you like to know the best part?  The very best part?  IT ONLY COST $3.00!!!  YES $3.00!  Also, you will find other fantastic finds from ELF.  I used their mineral make-up for a while, and it is comparable to Bare Minerals. 

Dry Shampoo

















Dry shampoo has become my new BFF.  If you've never tried it, you need to.  This is the brand I have been buying lately mostly because it's what Wal-Mart has in stock.  Dry shampoo just gives your hair a clean feel with out washing it and drying it.  Thanks to a pin I found on Pinterest, I found out how to actually use it.  Spray it in your hair, rub it in like you would if you were shampooing you hair, let it dry while you apply your make up and then brush it out.  Easy, peasy!

Jergen's Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer











I used this every other day.  It actually works.  I use both the face one and the body.  It smells devine and since it's daily you're not all streaky.

How I Met Your Mother
 













Seriously, how did I never watch this show?  How did I miss it?  Seriously.  It's LEGENDARY.  So, so, so, so SO funny!  I literally laugh out loud, every single episode.  Like I cackle.  I'm so very sad that I didn't know anything about this until this fall.  If you haven't watched....WATCH IT NOW!!!

I hope that I have given you some good advice on some of my favorite things.  I hope you will at least give of them a try.  If you must pick only one...go with How I Met Your Mother!


PS.  The other day I told of the white death heading our way.  Well it has ruined my Nashville plans, but I don't have to work tomorrow, so no alarm.  Take the good with the bad, huh?

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

So Today....

I can't sum it up much better than that right up there.

Today is a bad day.

Nothing really terrible happened, just a lot of bad things.

I'm getting mighty tired of this cold.  I actually really want to go run, but I'm afraid I'll hack up a lung if I do.  And I'm pretty sure I'll need that lung later in life.

I'm also hungry.  Like really hungry.  I want Chicken Nuggets and French Fries.  Only guess what?  I said no fast food for December.  So that means I don't get Chicken Nuggets and French Fries.  Maybe I should have given up something easy...like dates.  No dating December.  Seems to be the way December will go down anyway. 

Yea I got stood up today......

And I'm still hungry.

And I still want McDonald's.
Or Starbucks.
Or anything...anything with grease, sugar, loads of calories and yummy goodness.


And can we talk about this for a minute? 
What the crap?

I have grand plans for this weekend.  I am supposed to be in Music City USA enjoy Ice at Opryland.  Not in Trumann living Ice.  This is no good.  Not at all.  No in the least little bit.  I am still crossing my fingers that everyone is dumb and it's still going to be warm this weekend.  One can hope?  Right.

Maybe tomorrow will be better.... right?

By the way,

I'm STILL hungry.

December Goals

So after I got on the scale Friday and realized I gained a total of 7 pounds, I got a little upset.  So I decided to do something about it.  Well, since I'm sick there's not much I can do as far as working out, but I can start eating right and stop eating everything in sight.  I decided I would make a list of December goals.

  • No Fast Food.  Not that I eat fast food a lot, but I have been known to eat McDonald's every so often.  I am not going to be eating any fast food.
  • No Candy.  Again, I don't eat much candy, but I eat it every once in a while.
  • Make it to the gym 3 days a week
  • Take one minute of my 5k.  That might not seem like much but it will be to me.
  • Only order salads when going out to eat (or from the "light" menu).  I will be going out of town next week so I will have to eat out but I can at least make smart choices
I know that isn't much of a list of goals, but it's at least something obtainable.  I have set realistic goals before and reached them, so I'm hoping this will work as well.

Cheers to a new month!
