Pampered, Fed, and Ready for Bed!

by Meg on January 22, 2012

If today wasn’t a girly-girl day I don’t know what is…

It all began with a delicious breakfast followed by a sweaty gym session (seriously guys, the sweat was drippin’ today!)

Breakfast to fuel the fire:beautifulbreakfast 001beautifulbreakfast 005
An omelette with green onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes!

Quinoa flakes cooked in almond milk and topped with raspberries <3

PWO shake: 1 peach + 1 date + 1/2 cup almond milk + 1 scoop caramel protein powder + ice

At noon, my friend and I met up at my hair salon located downtown London to get our hair done! It was a blast Smile I had a wonderful stylist which made the appointment even more enjoyable! I really like having a stylist who is easy to talk to and shows their enthusiasm for their job through their work! Smile

Our hair appointment was followed by a make up appointment at MAC! I love MAC. I only use MAC make up SmileTheir eye shadow lasts all day long, their foundation gives the best coverage (IMO), and when you bring in 6 “empties” for recycling you get a free lipstick/eye shadow/gloss of your choice! What a wonderful program working towards a greener environment <3

So once our hair and make up were done, it was time to go home and get dressed for the big night!

The night turned out absolutely perfect. My friend put so much effort into planning the event and it showed!

Supper was amazing…

The dancers were phenomenal (the event was themed “Arabian Nights”)…

I got home around 12:30 with sore feet from all of the dancing (I couldn’t even wait until I got into my apartment to take my shoes off; they were off once I got into the elevator!)

and am now in bed Smile
Tonight marked the end of the busy weekend and I am thankful. Although I had an absolute blast at each event (Friday night and tonight), my apartment is looking like a bomb went off and it’s driving me crazy. I am a really clean person, but I have been so busy over the past few days that my usual daily cleaning hasn’t been happening. So, Sunday will include a leg workout at the gym, major cleaning, tons of homework (I have so much research to do for all of my group projects!), and a dinner date with two of my sweetest friends <3

What have you been up to this weekend? Enough about me! I want to hear about YOUR weekend!
When was the last time you had friends over for dinner? Last week, I had the girls over for sushi and we made a pact that our dinner date nights would be a weekly thing! So, it’s Sunday again and they are coming over for dinner! I am so excited! Smile
What brand of make up do you wear? I started wearing MAC products a few years ago and refuse to wear anything else! If you haven’t tried MAC products, I highly recommend doing so Smile

Talk to you tomorrow!

And thank you for all of your compliments on the dress that I wore last night! I got it from this boutique in Kelowna, B.C. Smile It was my all-time favourite store to shop at when I go to Kelowna! I always leave with a full bag (or three) and a depleted bank account! It’s wonderful <3

Oh girl you look so pretty <3 Your dress, hair, and make up look so good! I'm glad you had a nice time! BTW Your arms and shoulders looks AMAZING!
This weekend I got all purdied up too but I did it myself! However, I also wore MAC because all my make up is MAC and I love it (so much). Sometimes when I'm having a bad day, I go to MAC and buy a lipstick for the perfect cure! Have a nice Sunday!

You look gorgeous hun! Love your hair, make up, dress – everything! It’s so fun to get all pampered up. I wish I had remembered to buy tickets for it! Next year for sure though.

I really like MAC stuff too. I have a bunch of their eyeshadows but I almost never wear them. I wish I were more make up savvy haha! :P

your omlettes always look so freaking delicious. i use whole eggs all the time…but if I already have 2-3 whole eggs that day, then I will add in the egg beaters stuff (egg beaters are the same deal I guess?).
Do you have like to eat the omlette or the cereal first? or are you a “bite of this and that” kind of girl? :)

Reply

Meg January 22, 2012 at 3:37 PM

HAHA! I eat what ever is ready first ;) haha

MAC all the way! I have really sensitive skin and have never had a problem using MAC. Plus its good quality, lasts a long time and doesnt look cakey.

Your hair looks BEAUTIFUL!!! And the whole evening sounds lovely :)

We woke up to our first [sticking] snow on Saturday morning so cuddling by the fire, warm eats, and board games were on our agenda! Tons of fun, tons of relaxation… I love Trish McEvoy and Laura Mercier’s make-up lines!

Reply

Meg January 23, 2012 at 3:17 PM

Thanks :) The hairstylist really did a good job :) I could have never done my hair that nice! I am not too good at hair styling!

Your weekend sounds SO nice :) I love when you talk about cuddling by the fire in your posts <3
