Week in Fitness, Ke$ha & Skincare Tips

Hey guys! Happy Thursday. Even though yesterday felt like a “tomorrow is Friday” kind of day, I feel like this week is going by quickly. This is a good thing because I have lots of fun events on the agenda starting with Zac Brown Band tonight at the rodeo. Yee. Haw. This post is going to be quick and kinda all over the place because there are a few random things I want to discuss.

First, let’s recap last week in fitness. Since it is almost next week at this point.

Monday – Define, 40 minute HIIT cycling
Tuesday – Ran 6 miles at an 8:53 pace
Wednesday – Define Body
Thursday – 30 minute HIIT elliptical
Friday – Define Body
Saturday – ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run 10K at an 8:03 pace (way faster than I am used to these days)
Sunday – Rest day

Speaking of working out, I am loving Warrior, Ke$ha’s most recent album. Excellent exercise accompaniment acoustics. I know her music is nothing groundbreaking, but I love it and I’m not ashamed. I like almost every song on this album, and that’s not easy to do. Ironically the only one I don’t really like is the one the album is named after. Oops. She even has a couple slow songs on there. I am especially digging this one at the moment.

I also like this one

And this one

Top notch workout motivation.

On another note, I got a facial yesterday. It was awesome and way overdue since my last one was probably about two years ago. As facials usually go, I learned some interesting skincare tidbits I figured I should share. First, the esthetician (that word looks really weird) asked me if I wore powder. Answer: yes. She said she could tell because there was lots of powder clogging my pores and mentioned that powder is one of the hardest types of makeup to remove. She suggested Guerlain foundation as a more skin-friendly alternative. I can't find the exact one she recommended (I think they have changed the name), but this seems to be the one she was suggesting. Of course I went to the Galleria yesterday and ran out of time before I could get color matched, but I definitely plan to check it out in the future. She also suggested using Vitamin C to keep my skin looking fresh and youthful. I picked up a tube of this at CVS this morning after reading rave reviews on Amazon. I’ll let you guys know how it works!

Last but not least, while I forgot to get foundation yesterday I didn't leave the Galleria empty handed! Nope. I picked up these beauties from Zara...

...and these super fun floral Ann Taylor pantalones.

Welp, that's all I have for you today. Hope you’re having a good week and have something fun planned for this weekend.

Got any secret skincare weapons I should know about? Any fun recent purchases?


  1. i ordered the silver shoes! thanks for the tip and I hope they aren't too uncomfy.

  2. love those shoes Amy! might need a pair....

    1. and i love the pants too! obsessed with ann taylor tops/sweaters. never tried her pants so now might be the time!

    2. Her pants are awesome! I am obsessed with the oxblood pair I got over Christmas too. Both pairs are so comfy and flattering.

  3. Your esthetician seems nice; those are definitely useful tips regarding make-up use. Getting facials regularly is also a good tip, since it keeps your skin clean and well-maintained. A facial every month would be a good way to maintain your skin's health.
