I’ve not done a wants/obsession post for a couple of months, so thought I’d write about that today.
A make-up line that I’m obsessed with is Urban Decay. I love so many of their eye-shadows and have more than a few to feed my obsession. However, today I’m going to focus on their lipstick and one color in particular. It’s called Big Bang and it fits two particular criteria of mine. First, it’s pink and second, it’s sparkly. Both feed my obsession with pink and sparkly things. This is the lipstick I wear the most and always make sure I have on hand. I love how easy it goes on and that it’s pretty long lasting. Even though it’s a metallic, it doesn’t feel dry or gritty going on or while wearing it. It also makes my lips feel smooth and moisturized. The cost of a tube is $19, but it lasts a long time.
A want that I’ve had for a couple of months is Oculus Quest 2. This is a virtual reality headset. I’m not much of a gamer, so I won’t be using it for that, necessarily. I’ll be using it for working out using Supernatural. So I took the plunge today and ordered it. It should be here by Wednesday. I hope this helps me get down to pre-pandemic size in a fun way. It’s been very discouraging to see the weight creep up. Since hitting 55, I’m also having a much harder time losing any weight, even though I’m trying to be more active. And since we are going on an awesome trip this summer in which we will be eating a lot of great food, I don’t want to be too stressed about putting on even more weight.
Also this isn’t for anyone but myself. I like myself much more when I’m about 15 pounds lighter than where I’m at right now. I tend to run more curvy and know that my body type will never be waiflike. Also, since being diagnosed last year with coronary artery disease, I know that the extra weight it not good for me. This will be another tool for me to use on my health journey. I’m super excited to receive it and will post about my experience on here once I have the chance to use it.
