#60DayLipstickChallenge 2017

The #60DayLipstickChallenge was born last year when my boss at the time wanted us to all work on our personal fitness goals. I had a great coworker named Sally–who knew I loved lipstick and surprised me with a 60 sample set of lipstick from Avon. If you know me, you know I was beyond excited. (I may have screamed)

Long story short–I’m doing it again this year. Looking over the rules I set up last year–I’ve already broken 2 rules. #sorrynotsorry I “overlooked” the no soda rule –and I definitely had a photo from Day 1 but I was so disheartened by it that I decided to use this photo of bowling shoes in protest. Day 2 I felt better about things. Wish me luck!

Day 1: Bowling–candle pin awesomeness! (-No Lipstick Photo, -Drank Soda) PS the color of my lipstick was bright red–I liked it (of course!) 🙂

Day 2: East end trail! Great walk on a BEAutiful day! (-Drank Soda) PS the color was a little much for my pale skin but I’d give it a ago again.

So for 60 days:

  1. New lipstick every day (YESSS!)
  2. Fitness every day (Classes, running, hula hoop–anything!)
  3. No soda (shit! I live on Coke to stay awake sometimes and Sunkist is my fav)
  4. Eat Healthier (More veggies/fruit-less crap!)
  5. Find ways to be more healthy–park farther away from stores, move more!
  6. Get photographic evidence and use hashtag #60daylipstickchallenge

Day 43 #60DayLipstickChallenge

June 13, 2016

Day 43, I don’t know if it’s all the bad news & crap on social media (the Campaign, the Stanford rapist, Orlando) or what but you can feel people just feeling kinda awful. Makes me want to run or just hide under my covers. I heard on the radio (thanks WCYY) that people are actually on social media less this year than last. I haven’t had any soda in 43 days. I feel like I need it to be sane some days. (I really don’t) but I miss Sunkist. (Who loves Orange Soda?!)

Ok Lipstick–Day 33 #electricpinklipstick brought about the first obvious hit on. Ha. I was at Gritty’s with Kate and she left to pee and the dude at the next table got up and said, “I never go up to complete strangers-especially about lipstick-I LOVE your lipstick, what are you doing later?” My response, “Thanks buddy, sit down”

I don’t know how I feel about the matte lipsticks. It looks good but doesn’t feel like I have it on–weird. I’ve missed working out with my people at work, I hope we can get back to that but I feel like with the busy summer season it’s not super feasible. Yoga in at the Prom was awesome–it’s great. I need more Yoga in my life (they’re offering at Bug Light soon!). Getting better at the hula hoop (thanks Rhonda!!!) I think my record is about 12 (ha). Fashion shows count at activity–doing another one this weekend! (Real one!)(yesssss!)

Over Half Way #60DayLipstickChallenge

Over half way through and I’m still alive 🙂 No soda for 33 days (DAMN!) The only time I really miss it is when I’m really tired in the morning or at about 3pm (I don’t drink coffee–I know be stunned) 😛 and when getting pizza. (It pains me-especially Sunkist & Coke)

I had snap peas for the first time since I was a kid and I’ve been eating a lot of oatmeal and fruit/vanilla yogurt for breakfast. Sadly I’ve totally stopped keeping my food journal-I’d be good during the week but forget to write in it that next Monday. I’ve also taken breaks and remembered to eat things I want (ice cream, pizza, etc.) but in moderation. I feel so much better! I also really appreciate all the support from friends and family 🙂 You rock!

Happy Friday! Sorry I’ve  been slow at getting my blog posts going again. If you missed Day 10-Day 19 here you go 🙂

No more cupcakes for breakfast to report. I still haven’t had soda–and I’ve been limiting time spent with negative people. I feel better than I have in a long time.

Cupcake for Breakfast #60daylipstickchallenge

May 11, 2016
Leave a Comment

So I’ll admit it. I so had a cupcake for breakfast…and it was damn good. (Guinness Chocolate cupcake) You can’t do that all the time or we’d all look like *YOKOZUNA. Yokozuna was a beautiful man–don’t get me wrong I just don’t want to look like him.

So what else–making dinner at home, I’ve been doing that–helps with making things more healthy as well as saves some money so that’s been great. ALSO…as much as you hate doing it…STRETCH. Sally has really helped with that a lot. (Thanks Sally!)

Day 4 (Thursday) I went to Jazzercise again with my friend Jen! It was great but they didn’t do as much with core as the first time (crunches and push ups). Free all month!

Day 4

 Day 5 (Friday) was Eastern Prom brisk walk, It was great to do a brisk walk here. Walked from the Eastern Prom to downtown Portland and back.

Day 6 (Saturday) was Back Bay brisk walk with my friend Diane. 3.5 miles-great way to catch up with a friend!

Day 7 (Sunday) was Mother’s Day! I did a lot of stretching and took this day as more of a break. You need a break.

Day 8 (Monday) was the first day I worked out with the group at work. We jogged down the campground then to the ocean and then back. We also did a workout outside. It was cool. Did my first burpee.

Day 9 (Tuesday) Second day of working out with the group at work. We jogged down two blocks and up the ocean and around and back to the campground. Then did the workout–we tried to mix things up and adjust things with side planks!

Day 5

Day 5 #redvelvetlipstick- This one is great too! I like this color!

Day 6

Day 6 #caramelcomfortlipstick-I hated this one but everyone else seemed to like it! I did not feel like myself at all!

Day 7

Day 7 #lovelyfuchsialipstick- Eh this color was ok

Day 8

Day 8 #riperoselipstick – Just no

Day 9

Day 9 #tendermauvelipstick- No



*Yokozuna! I had this photo taped on my door in college. It helped motivate me to go to the gym. ha!

Day 4 #60DayLipstickChallenge

So far I haven’t had soda, I fought off a giant Kit Kat (those things are heaven) and I’ve been keeping track of food. If you have ideas for stretches, healthy lunches, snacks etc., or want to join in or go to a class let me know! 🙂


#creamymelonlipstick – Too “natural” for me.

Day 2 (Tuesday) was Hot Yoga at Greener Postures in Falmouth. They are the first place I ever tried Yoga–many months ago. (My friend Lori pushed me & kept telling me how awesome it was–Thanks Lori!) If you like hot yoga and want it fast paced with someone who tells you exactly how to stand, where to put your weight–etc. pick Gretchen (she was my first teacher). Lianna is awesome! She is the teacher I see the most and she pushes you just that extra bit and plays great music (you need great music YO). They have a free class at 7:30am this Sunday 5/8 (bring YO MOMMA)–it’s really great–do it–it’s $5 to start and you get a free water & use of a mat the first time, then it’s $7 after that. Message me if you want to go! 🙂

Day 3

#coffeecremelipstick- I really didn’t like this color, It was BROWN (looked creepy on a white coffee mug) but a lot of people seemed to love it!

Day 3 (Wednesday) was Running. I ran with Johanna at Back Cove in the cold and rain. (no excuses!) We trained with a few others for STRIVE’s 5k not long ago. We used the “C25k” free app. We made it more than half way around Back Bay and then walked at a fast pace the rest of the way (seeing few humans). Our goal is to sign up for a 5k and do it together again in a few months. If we sign up for a 5k we’re locked in. (Easy as Pi race I heard is at Thompson’s Point this year)

Day 4 is today. Doing something but not sure what. Today’s lipstick is much more Guglielmo.

If you know me at all, you know I love lipstick. I love it-like really love it, I put it on at all time, even before bed. Everyone has their things–this is mine.

My awesome friend Sally from work recently got me a 60 lipstick sample pack. I knew I wanted to try every lipstick. I also knew we had a “Fitness Challenge Grant” coming up at work (we all have to set up our own personal goals etc.) and we all have to come up with ideas on how to use the $500 (for fitness equipment, etc.). My idea for #60daylipstickchallenge was born. I will wear a new lipstick every day for 60 days as well as do some sort of fitness activity.


Hi there!

Day 1 was yesterday and I tried Jazzercise with a great friend. They have free classes all this month. (check it out) I definitely respect it a lot more now that I’ve tried it. I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s like Zumba but slower and they use weights and make you do crunches and pushups. I will take photographic evidence and I will use the hashtag every day.

So for 60 days:

  1. New lipstick every day (YESSS!)
  2. Fitness every day (Classes, running, hula hoop–anything!)
  3. No soda (shit! I live on Coke to stay awake sometimes and Sunkist is my fav)
  4. Eat Healthier (More veggies/fruit-less crap!)
  5. Find ways to be more healthy–park farther away from stores, move more!
  6. Get photographic evidence and use hashtag #60daylipstickchallenge

Wish me luck! This is going to be a blast-Going to also keep a food journal & record my measurements/weight tonight–but it’s more about the lipstick and making changes.

Anyone else notice that the Apple store really smells?

Abercrombie (sucks) IS to overpowering cologne


Apple (amazing) IS to overpowering BO/horse poop
