Morning Waffle… October 22nd

It’s been a while since my last morning waffle so I felt the need to offload some of the shallow stuff.

Here are some things that are on my mind this morning…

1. Sugar Coma’s

Halloween is upon us and that means my house is chocker block full of junk food. I’m not watching my weight or anything but I do have big issues regarding sugar addictionI have been known to black out with hyperness in the midst of a sugar injection, once I even lost vision in my eye for a few minutes. It almost always ends in tears… but only after a lot of laughing.

This is why it is not helpful to have bags of sugary goodies around a sugar junkie-  who lets face it is probably well on the way to a sugar coma. I must keep control of myself!

 

2. No foundation

I have been passing on foundation this week and using only concealer. The concealer of choice this week is Benefit Conceal it! It’s a pencil stick but still creamy and has great coverage.

I apply it under my eyes, around my chin and nostrils. Then jump right into my blush and eyeshadow routine.

 

3. Starbucks Christmas

Yes, I am actually excited about Starbucks Christmas cups and gingerbread slices.

For me this marks the beginning of the festive season. I can’t wait!!! I can smell the pumpkin pie from here.

 

4. Chicago

I’m flying to Chicago this December for a few days. There won’t be the same level of shopping there was last year, I will need to behave myself. It’s my favourite city on the planet, I could pack up and move there tomorrow. It’s particularly magical at Christmas time and I prefer it to New York for shopping and eating. Snow boots, ear muffs, mittens, Cheescake Factory, West Egg for breakie, The Water Tower mall…woo hoo!

 

5. Twenty two books later and I’m reading this again?!

Ok, I agree, it’s getting ridiculous. But I can honestly say that I have read 22 books this year and not one of them captured my heart or even my attention to the same degree as Ms Meyers work. I can’t explain it, I wish I could, but after 22 average reads surely I deserve some Twilight romance!

On another note I bought some Winter boots – if you want a look I’ll see you back here around 11.45am!

What’s on your mind this morning?

    Hey Amy! I love your morning waffles! So fun to read over my coffee & muffin :) I just wanna give you an “amen sister” on pretty much every listing. I love sugar and have to steer clear of buying candy-thankfully we don’t get any children coming by our apt so that means we go to a friends house to see all the kiddies in their costumes and help pass out candy-we just buy it on the way there :) i’m actually going to miss it this year b/c i’ll be on holiday over the next week-going to the beach! i am excited for you to come stateside. i don’t live in chicago but have always wanted to go…i hear its awesome.

    my biggest amen! i over eclipse. i love the “saga” but eclipse is my absolute favorite book. i could read it 100 times. i have read it about 4 times now. my friends and i frequent used book sales and i have read quite a few books this year but, like you, i keep going back to twilight :) have a great day!

    I have already eaten all my halloween candy, I’m so annoyed with myself. I’ll have to buy more and then eat that too :-)

    You’re so lucky going to Chicago!! I was supposed to go to Italy before Christmas but my mom can’t go so now I think we’ll have to wait till after… pity :( I hope you have a lovely time!

    Halloween sweets will be the death of me too…LOL!

    Also, thanks for that post on The Body Shop’s winter collection! They had sent me three products and I didn’t quite know what two of them were (the glitter…LOL) or what I was supposed to do with them…ha ha ha! <3

      Ah no about Italy! But that means you have something else to look forward to at a later stage.

    I always buy the multi packs of sweets in ‘just incase we get inundated with trick or treaters’. Unfortunately, I always buy too much and end up scoffing it all myself, then going to bed feeling very sickly indeed!

      Ah but it’s worth the sickliness :) I won’t say that when my head is near the toilet seat hee hee
