Was up early to meet a friend and went for a run around a Reservoir which made me realize how unfit I am lol!I cant wait to improve!

After a 4.4 Mile run around a reservoir I got home and snacked on some green grapes & wasabi peas while working on my laptop :)

Random fact: Did you know most chewing gum contains plastic! Yes when you are chillin out chewing some gum you are actually chewing plastic! and other chemical, also when you drink or eat things from plastic bottle of containers especially in the sun or heated food the poisons from the plastic go into your food & body! So avoid plastic whenever possible.
I just read the gum info online and now im definitely going to think twice before chewing next time! I came across this info along with alot of other amazing info about Plastic Free Living at http://plasticfreeguide.com/

Also these awesome stainless steel ToGo Ware containers are on my Wish List to bring to work!

and these are pretty awesome too!

After that I went Makeup shopping!! Heres some new things I got that I cant wait to try out!!;

Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lip Gloss
What it is: An all-natural, sparkling color for your pout. What it does: Bare Escentuals 100% Natural Lip Gloss is an all-natural, preservative-free formula that contains a healthy infusion of 100% pure bareMinerals that provide sparkling color. Natural oils and Cupuacu Butter deliver lasting hydration, protective antioxidants, and superior shine—sans the stickiness—and the trailing scent of natural vanilla will tempt your palate. What it is formulated WITHOUT:

Some Stila one step foundation which is apparently a primer, concealer, foundation and has a matte finish so you dont need to powder. Also it is cruelty free, without chemicals, parabens or sulfates!

My new ultimate favorite mascara it gives lashes massive volume and the best thing is its 100% natural. This stuff is truly amazing! and it doesn't dry up or go clumpy like most mascaras!
