Garnet Grape

Friends,

I apologise for not blogging sooner. I have started many a new writing pieces, but sadly, am so exhausted by the time I get home, it’s a wonder I can even make it to my bed! I love working my three jobs, along with the intense training, BUT come 1030, this Balancing Act becomes incoherent and wobbly!

As many of you know my new challenge to not purchase anything until I have fully paid off the Competition Training, Competition Suits and Competition Nutrition, I have been finding any way I can to revamp that closet of mine. A great suggestion was to hold a Clothes Swap and my amazing talented friend JMAY held one not too long ago with success. Here is my dilemma. Recently I purged my closet and DONATED many wonderful pieces and am left with what I would consider my ideal closet…(perhaps I have a pair of gifted (Hand-me-down) jeans I can throw in the pile, but at this exact moment, I am not sure I am ready to part with any of my things…SO, I am beginning a pile that would be worthy or a clothes swap. (since one article of clothing would not suffice) Are any of you out there in the Ottawa Region willing to be apart of this?

Along with my new challenge is the NECESSITY to not purchase any makeup (unless the concealer runs out because girls, lets face it, I look pretty haggard in the AM without it.) So, I have been saving up my MAC empty containers to SWAP for a new lipstick…As of today, I have the magic number 6! AND, I plan on rebuying my favourite colour. Sincerely hoping it is still available. Either way I will blog about it sometime in the near future (not ready to share my fave colour just yet)! I also received a coupon via email for a free sample of Chanel moisturizer, which I will be pick up at the Bay counter tonight. If you sign up for the Bay newsletter, they sometimes give you freebies so I suggest you join. Do any of you have must read blogs or websites/emails you subscribe to for freebies? Keep me posted!

The weather out in Ottawa has been nothing but bleak. Waking up this morning to a blurred wintry whiteness was all I could do from crying tears of sheer frustration. Spring are you out there? Please find us quickly! I decided my mood being a bit sombre from the weather (and my upcoming dentist appt this afternoon) Black was the colour of poison but not without warming it up with a deep garnet sweater (with buttons that look like those mint candies you could get after a meal….what ever happened to those?).
