New Music Suggestions and My Drew Barrymore Attempt

Thank you to everyone who entered the 
Musical Madness Giveaway a few weeks ago.  
I received SO many INCREDIBLE music choices!

A few of my favorites so far are:

We Found Love by Rihanna (feat Calvin Harris) suggested by Katy @ Fit In Heels

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor 
This is a GREAT spinning warm up song!
suggested by 

A Kiss by Bad Meets Evil
suggested by oatsnbows

Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
suggested by Laura at

Bad Influence by Pink
suggested by footbeats

Ok, here are 3 songs (including routine) that you can add to your run.

You Make The Rain Fall by Kevin Rudolf & Flo Rider
Routine:  Steady run adding a sprint during the loop of the song.  The sprint is about 30 seconds.

Sing for the Moment by Eminem
Routine: On a treadmill start at incline 1.0 and add 0.5 every 30 seconds.  When it gets to the chorus of the song pick up your speed.

Dancing on My Own by Robyn
Routine:  Sprint for 45 seconds and walk for 15.  Repeat.

I got motivated by the make-up Drew Barrymore is wearing in the Cover Girl ad......

I made my best attempt to copy the look...

I tried to copy Drew's facial expression in this picture but I ended up looking like a ding a ling.  So I just smiled which is my natural state.....

Not going to make up work area was a hot mess....

I was rockin some serious tunes and singing in my hairbrush (photos not included thankfully)......

While I LOVE MAC make up it is pretty pricey so I've found the next best thing....H.I.P.  It is reasonably priced, found at Target and lasts ALL DAY LONG.  Love this stuff.  My sister-in-law who always has perfect make up on her face let me know about this inexpensive replacement to MAC.

After I cleaned up I put all my make-up back in its home.....

Then I threw on this outfit and headed out to run some errands......

I asked Squiggy & Lenny what they thought.....

They clearly didn't appreciate being woken from their nap.


  1. Great, light-hearted post!! :)

    I think that makeup bag is the cutest thing!

  2. Love the makeup copy, you did a good job, I am terrible at doing anything other than my basics. I try, but I freak out and take it off! Your vest is great, I've got a cardi that looks very similar.
    I really like the new Rihanna song too, it's got a great beat. You should give Bad by The Cab a try, it's one of my new favorites.

  3. I love your cats' names! hahah adorable.

    I think your makeup looks just like Drew Barrymore! I think you should be their new model -- I'd rather buy makeup from someone who's smiley and happy like you ;-) hehe

  15. Just wanted to pass on a holiday spin music selection. I don't know why, but this song motivates me. Oh, and it was also a fantastic air guitar segment on The Office. Christmas / Sarajevo 12/24 (Instrumental) by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. PS: I'm a little obsessed by Christmas music. :)
