5 Things Friday (x2)

Okay, let's talk favorites.  Because I know you all are reading my blog because you want to know my favorites.  LOL

But for reals though.

5 Things

1
Maybelline 24/7 Matte Ink though.  I LOVE this stuff.  Seriously it lasts forever and it's not drying like typical mattes are.  I hope they come out with more pinks, but they do have quite a few colors!  I used to wear so much Lipsense, and while I still love it, it is just so expensive for as fast as I would go through the gloss.  (TIP:  You can use WET N WILD Megaslicks Lip Gloss in lieu of Lipsense's gloss.  And it's like $2-3 at the grocery store and comes in clear or a million different colors.  It's not as thick, but it doesn't break down the Lipsense.)


2
Abound Whitnee heels.  So comfy.  So easy to walk in and even chase kidlets.  So inexpensive (a Nordstrom Rack exclusive).  I have three colors!  Perfect mom shoe.


3
Sweatshirts/long sleeved shirts with cutouts/holes.  This is the BEST invention if you live in  sunny Arizona.  Cold morning, nice afternoon.  Don't have to wear a cardigan nor change by afternoon.  (Images below are clickable.)



4
Boots No. 7 Beautifully Matte foundation.  I have the craziest oily complexion on the planet, but I have been using this for a couple of years and swear by it!!  I found it via Amber Fillerup's YouTube and it really is matte!  



5
This one is $8.  EIGHT DOLLARS!!  Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse!  I have only been using it for a month or so, but it's awesome for my crazy oily complexion.  I used to wear expensive foundations like Estee Lauder Double Wear, and I am so happy about finding Boots #7 and drug freaking store Maybelline Matte Mousse.  




PLUS
5 Running Things (you knew I was going there)

1
Stayfit running belt!  It is wider than most running belts, which is AWESOME because when you pack it full, it doesn't become a spare tire that bounces and annoys you.  It lays flat against you and you don't notice it.  You can also stick a water flask in the pockets, so on longer runs I will tuck one in the small of my back and I never know it's there.

Tip:  Freeze half the water bottle and just top it off when you head out, that way you get cold water even as your body heat warms the bottle (or the sun does).


2
Humagels!  These are amazing gels, obviously, or I wouldn't be ranting and raving about them 24/7, and I wouldn't have become affiliated with the company.  They really are AMAZING.

I was looking for an all natural gel I could use while nursing little Dash back in the day, and I used to be a caramel GU person, but they were hard to stomach.  Humagel's are basically pureed fruit with added Chia seeds, so they are actually tasty.

I think I've covered Goodrs before, but alas, the best non-slipping running glasses approved by Arizona sweat-fest me.  Tons of colors, and super cute!  Good running sunglasses were so hard to find for so long!

4
The Boston Marathon is MONDAY!!!!!  I am living vicariously through so many, and I hope everyone who runs has an amazing experience and time!  And I will be streaming it in bed like last year. 

Speaking of last year, the weather is supposed to be bad again this year.  I think it will take a lot to top last year, see for yourself in my sister's video.



5
Which means OUR MARATHON IS IN 15 DAYS.  GULP.  One more long run tomorrow, 14, then it's on to tapering!!
