Up and Down #17 / A Piece of Me… in August 2011

It’s time for this month’s Ups & Downs!


The Body Shop’s Tobacco Flower perfume.  This is a very old discontinued perfume which was rereleased in Japan last year. I loved this when I was in middle school!

Finishing Project 20 pan! A blog post will be up soon!
Almost finishing Couch to 5k!  I’m on week 8! I bought the Bridge to 10k app as well!
Meeting Eve again!

See yesterday’s post.
REALLY hot weather.  I hate how there are only about 3 months in the year when the weather is bearable. Otherwise it’s too hot (35C / 95F, like today), or too cold (-10C / 14F in the winter).
Getting up at 5 AM on the weekend to run before it gets too hot.  I used to get up at 6 AM to run, but now it’s too hot at 6 AM!

It’s time for A Piece of Me in August 2011.
This month…

I like: going through my stash to rediscover great products!

I don’t like: myself right now.  No, I hate myself right now.  How could I have gotten so fat?
I want you to know: I am going to show everyone that I can do it!!!!  I am going to lose weight!

I’ve planned: to write a collaborative blog post with a Japanese blogger! It’s my first collaboration and I am so excited!

How is your month?

xoxo, K

8 Thoughts on “Up and Down #17 / A Piece of Me… in August 2011

  1. Like you, I’m enjoying rediscovering products in my stash. It makes me wonder why I stopped using some things.

    I know that you can do it! You WILL lose the weight that you are not liking right now.

  2. How dare you hate someone I love?! Hmph!  Dislike!

    But…yay for everything else! ((hugs)) <3

  3. Ooh, Tobacco Flower sounds really nice.  I need to go sniff this.
    You are my hero for the Couch to 5K!  Not to mention getting up at 5 to run.  I should try this, as I’ve been just talking about exercising for years.
    And that’s great about finishing 20pans!  I just get too bored and can’t stick to finishing any product.
    I am enjoying shopping in my stash though; been playing around with eyeliners lately.
    I hope you like yourself soon again; your blog is great and you sound like a fantastic person.
