Things I Am Liking

I have really enjoyed the November blog challenge and reading others’ blogs. My commenting has only been so-so, but I really like the ideas for repeating posts that occur at regular or semi-regular intervals. One type of the post is “Things I’m Liking” so…

Couch to 5K: I’m using the UK Runner’s World plan to ease my way back into running. A friend of mine hurt himself a few years back and this is what his PT recommended. Since I majorly tweaked my calf a few months towards the end of a random 3 mile run, I decided I am of the age where consistency and gradual increases are required. You know that “Only increase your mileage 10% a week” adage that I have never followed? Well, I think it’s time that I do.

Thanksgiving Weekend Sales: While I wish I could save 25% all the time, I stocked up on a few items that were really well-priced. My favorite moisturizer and SPF/skin concealer which leads me to…

Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment: While it might sound next-level Chia pet, this is my favorite SPF/color-correcting/mattifying cream. I tried a lot of BB creams back when they were first out and very popular, but I never was super into them. The Laura Mercier BB. Meh. The Kosas skin oil. Well, that was ok but no SPF. This TFCCT is awesome. It goes on with a slight green tint that changes to a light beige as it’s rubbed in. And it changes quite quickly- it’s not something that you have to rub in vigorously like those purple-to-white sunscreens. The color match is really good for me. It’s important to note that it’s not skin shade matching- I am pretty sure on any skin color, it would stay the same light beige while being rubbed in.

  1. I used the Couch to 5K app twice and really loved it! I tend to stop running over the winter, so it’s like I have to start from scratch each spring, and I don’t tend to follow a program anymore, but I would like to get back to 10K+ last year and I might do the Couch to 10K, because I DEFINITELY want to avoid injuries!

    1. Using the app is a good idea. I’m just going off a schedule screenshot, which did lead to repeating a workout rather than reading the directions for the new one.

  2. I use a color correcting primer by Smashbox that is the same green. It is lovely that it serves the dual purposes of priming my face for makeup and evening out the red. That green color is off-putting at first, though, isn’t it?!

    1. It’s a little odd. I will say that this rubs off a bit on my mask that I have to wear for work, but not to an overly embarrassing degree.
