Week 4 aka 1 month into the SHEDFAT Queen of the Hill 12-week Workout!
Workouts are made for:
Wednesday – rest day
Sunday – rest day
Workouts consist of 1-2 focus areas for the day. (Ie. chest/calves day, shoulders/abs, legs/biceps, etc.). Some workouts are longer than other days and days where workouts are shorter 30-minute post cardio is the final to-do.
I typically go to gym after work and work has been challenging this past month in addition to Christmas and all the holiday festivities it was a bit tough keeping up with the workouts day by day. If I workedout on Wednesday (a rest day) I would do Thursday’s workout. Most exercises are 4 sets with x amount of reps for an exercise. There were times when I was too tired to do all 4 sets and I would only do 3 sets. Depending on the exercise I would lessen or up my reps of the exercise. For instance, I do not do decline bench press at all and sometimes I may only do 8 reps or 10 reps depending how much energy I have at that given moment. That is also another thing about the workout plan, it requires certain exercises that get me out of my comfort zone like side cable crunch, decline bench press, and more. Sometimes I would still do other exercises in addition for the gieven days workout. For instance, I would do some butt workouts on biceps day because I want to and/or because the current machine I need is being used. As for the cardio on the shorter workout days , I will be honest, sometimes..okay most of the time I do not do the entire 30 minutes. Again, I go to the gym after work and by the time I get home other things have to be done..like have dinner. However, I do do cardio for 15 minutes or so, just not always the entire 30 required minutes.
I do some progression in my back and my legs. I have a few more months to go and see my full progress.
You’ve heard of the brand Colourpop and their famous ultra matte lippies. They were only available online until recently. When Sephora had their sale last month in November I had to try these babies out. I wanted to give it a little time before giving a full review on them.
“YOU’RE A GEM” set comes in 3 full size lippies in ‘Charming’, ‘Misbehaving’, & ‘Cathching Feels’ each is 0.11 ounces. Retails for $18/set.
‘Charming’ – Is a satin lip with some glitter to it. It can be worn alone or layered on top of ‘Misbehaving’ or ‘Catching Feels’.
‘Misbehaving’ – 1/2 glossy finish lippies. I wore it and it my coworker said it was similar to MAC’s ‘Rebel’ with a deep purple color.
‘Catching Feels’ – 2/2 glossy finish lippies in the set. It is a darker taupe color that reminds me of Colourpop’s ‘Tulle’ (one of my favorites).
I absolutley love love the trio set and highly recommended trying this out if you have never used Colourpop.

I bought this product on Ulta as a part of their 21 Days of #ultabeauty. It is orifinally $20, but was on sale for $10. I really want to do some cat eyes and I wanted to try this out.
The packaging from the box to the pen is sleek and smooth. The box has a snake-like texture and the gold lettering is embossed. So perfect already. The pen itself is smooth with a matte finish where you hold the pen. The cap has a snake-printing so you won’t loose it.
The felt tip pen is flexible so there is no roughness when it is pressed onto the eyelid.
As soon as I put it on my eye it the line is smooth, but does not instantly dry and is definitely buildable if needed. My biggest “no” for me is after having this on while I am at work for a few hours (which is indoors) I start to get raccoon eyes on the outer part of my bottom eye. I repeatedly wipe my eye after hours of application. I do not know if this does not work for me or it is across the board with others.
Does this item work for you or is it just me? This eyeliner does not work for me and I will be returning it.
It is not conventional of me to do any sort of review, but I was so compelled to reviewing this particular item. So here it goes…
First of, I absolutely love e.l.f. make-up brushes and have been a fan of them since their earlier years before they were sold in stores. This item is my first face item I have tried from their line.
I visited the e.l.f. store and thought $8 for 2.53 oz of face product is a great deal. It was winter time and I wanted my face to feel soft and hydrated and because it was my first e.l.f. face item I was really excited to try it out the following day.
I tried it out for a little over a week and it was good product to use to get me through the day. After a few days of use I would notice my face get flakey and dry! A complete opposite of what the packaging says!! I stopped using the moisturizer for a couple of days and low and be hold, my skin was not dry or flaking. After a few days of rest from the product I wanted to give it a go again and after a two consecutive uses my face began to dry again!
So again, I stopped using the product. A few months have passed since winter and I thought, “Let’s try using the moisturizer again since it’s warmer now.” A single day of use and the same results, dry and flaking skin. Its details are..
“This lightweight, broad-spectrum SPF 15 moisturizer helps hydrate and nourish for glowing, healthy looking skin. Infused with Purified Water and skin-nourishing antioxidants from Vitamin E and Grape.”
I have normal skin and take good care of my face, but it’s odd to not have this product work for me despite its description. I do not usually explore outside of their make-up brushes, but this for me is a no-go.
