Bare Escentual goodies and EOTD

So this was supposed to be a Valentines gift, but the bare escentuals site is sloooow on shipping. It was mailed out on the 8th and it was in the mail system for 10 days. It went from UPS to USPS and the tracking number they provided never really got updated. I guess that's what happens when you get free shipping! haha If you order over $50 the shipping is free, but let me warn you it is soo slow.

The eye shadow set is SUPER cute! It is called bareMinerals Sweet Obsessions and it looks like a mini box of chocolates, including the little wrapper. Each shade is pretty unique, but are really small. Supposedly it's a $99 value, originally $48 and now it is marked down to $36.  There is a little instruction manual in case you are unsure of what colors might look good together. (If you really want to see some swatches, let me know)

The lipgloss set is really cute too, Buxom Babes Diamond Lips. It was nearly half price. Originally $28 marked down to $14.50. I have tried the Buxom glosses and LOVE them! So I thought this was a steal! :)


The mint eyeshadow looked like a color that I could never wear so I thought I would go ahead and try the shade today and get that color out of the way. Well, who would have thought it would actually look good? I couldn't believe how much I liked it. It made my green eyes look really green. Even my husband commented on how nice it looked.

UDPP all over lid
BE Mint all over lid
BE Dark Chocolate in the crease
BE Creme De Menthe outer V also used it to wet line
BE Lemon Meringue under brow
UD Lingerie to prime the lashes
Clinique Lash Doubling mascara
e.l.f Eyebrow Kit in light (all time favorite brow filler for my shade of blond brows!)
I also stopped at walmart tonight and picked up some Hard Candy Sheer Envy face primer. It was only $8 for 1.6 oz. It has spf 15 in it and the price is really cheap compared to the higher end primers! Will let you all know if I like it soon! :)

After prolonged use, your bike's tires inevitablycarbon road wheelwill need a burst of air to stay properly inflated.
A variety of pumps exist, but the most common ysbike01 ones are hand pumps that can be carried with you on your bike and floor pumps that need to be stored but are easier to use. Regardless of your pump selection, when you observe deflated bicycle tires,
using a bicycle air pump to re-inflatecarbon bike wheelsetsthe tires typically takes only a couple of minutes and requires no special expertise.
Locate the bicycle extention valve stem on your bicycle tire and unscrew the valve cap, using a counterclockwise motion. Set aside the valve cap. Consult your bicycle manual or examine the tire to find the correct pounds-per-square-inch measurement recommended for proper inflation.
Place the nozzle of your pump on the tire valve andcarbon disc wheel
tighten. Grab the tire and begin pushing and withdrawing the pump's plunger so air begins flowing into the tire. Use a similar motion with your foot if your pump is equipped with a pump pedal and not a plunger.
Keep pumping until the tire feels firm but gives slightly when you squeeze the sides of the tire, or the gauge on your pump indicates you've reached the desired pressure per square inch (PSI). Disconnect the air pump from the tire if it lacks a pressure gauge and attach a handheld gauge to the tire valve to determine its pressure.
Reattach the pump nozzle to the tire valve carbon wheelsif its pressure isn't at the required level and continue pumping. Check frequently on the tire's pressure to avoid over-inflating the tire, which can cause the tire to blowout while riding. Disconnect the pump when the tire is fully inflated and reattach the tire valve cap.
Before you start shopping, in person or online, set a price range and stick with it.
The local triathlon club might know someone looking to sell a bicycle that would be a significant upgrade to yours.
