Iron Man 2

I had a chance to watch Iron Man 2 and it was everything I expected it to be. Funny, full of action and celebrities. Very satisfying to see a movie that lives up to it's expectations. If you watched the first one, you know that there's an extra scene after the credits so stick around! If you miss it, google it and you can find it online.

To top it off, we ate at the food court before instead of going to a restaurant and it was quite satisfying. I love me, my Taco Bell ;)

I also got around to knocking out one of my to-do's. I deposited the chqs and started phase 1 of getting my car cleaned. Take that!

You always get what you always do

Yesterday I was doing my normal blog reading and read this post on motivation. One of the commenters shared this motivational quote "you always get what you always get, if you always do what you always do" and it triggered something in me because I am that person that procrastinates and pushes things off to the last possible minute. I've made great strides and am not as bad as I used to be but old habits die hard and lately I feel like I've been in a rut. During the day, I have these great ideas and thoughts of things I am going to accomplish but I get home and it becomes the last thing I want to do. i.e. I've thought about cleaning my car for the last few months but have yet to do it!

So I decided to make some declarations and then go out and do it! Above are my mini goals for May 2010. I might not accomplish all of them but I am going to try to work towards all of them because the quote above is so true. Nothing is going to happen if all I do is sit on my ass and do what I always do. 3 of the 5 things I want to do are things I've been putting off for the longest time (clean car, deposit chqs and fill out health expenses) but also really easy to get outta the way. Running a 10k in under an hour needs a little bit of work and so does getting a new job.

It may seem like I am being optimistic by putting 'land a new job' on there and expect it to happen this month but I've actually been looking for a while even though I haven't written about it and have an interview coming up that I feel is mine to loose. I want to make sure I put my best foot forward and prepare accordingly. Maybe the goal should have read, go into the interview 100% prepared but I am too lazy to recreate the picture.

Pleasantly surprised w/ Sephora Lash Plumper

So as mentioned in my previous post, I went and picked up my birthday gift from Sephora. Well I gave the Sephora Lash Plumper mascara in black a go today and I was impressed. When I first pulled the wand out, I set myself up for dissapointment. Ever since Cover Girls Lash Blast, I've only used mascaras with rubberized wands since they do an amazing job of seperating. Well surprisingly, the Sephora mascara did just fine. It seperated and perked up my lashes. I can't say it plumped them up as claimed but I only did one coat. For work, I like to keep it at one coat and when I want drama, I do several. I am sure if I did several coats, it'd plump up fine and dandy.

Well I just got home from work and the lashes are still perked and seperated. Best of all, no flakes. The downside? At $18, I probably wouldn't buy it again because you can find similar results from drugstore products or even splurge and get DiorShow.

Monday Musings because I can't write a full post

  • If you want to read an inspirational story, go here. It's the story of an Iranian woman who turned her experience which lead her to receive 40 lashes into a positive one. I have a short attention span and read the whole article. You will too!
  • I went to Sephora and picked up my birthday gift. It's an eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. So much better than last years mini glosses which I still have sitting pretty much unused in my drawer.
  • I am still going strong with the gym. Since introducing Body Pump into my routine, I've noticed I am much stronger. When I wear sleeveless shirts, I am a dork who can't stop feeling up her biceps because I can feel the muscle where as it was all flab before!
  • I realized that rely on spell checkers a little too much. My grammar on the other hard is tolerable.
  • Work blows!
