Reckless Adventure: Part Three


We found a couple cave with names all over the walls

KEEP OFF...oooppppsss

Trying to figure out what to do next..

This park is very breath taking..The mountains have names based on the way it's formed/shaped, but I don't have pictures and it's better to go look at them yourself anyways hehehe :P

I realized that I have been talking Colorado for granted. I lived here for basically my whole childhood and teenage years. I always thought Colorado is boring, but there's SO much to see! It can get pretty boring, but it's nice to know that I can go to these places and relax and get a good workout.
My legs are pretty sore, but I LOVE being sore hahaha I feel like I'm losing weight haha xD

If any of you guys have the chance, come and check these places out!!

Reckless Adventure: Part Two

Part TWO of the last post :]

Sexy pose attempt


Reckless Adventure: Part One

My friends and I decided to Pikes Peak and climb the Manitou Incline that's next to the COG railway.

From a distance, it looks like a scar in the middle of the mountain.

For those who don't know what it is, it's a 1 mile trail up 8600 feet. Originally, it was built for water lines and a hydroelectric plant but it turned into a cable car ride which quickly became a tourist attraction.

There are many people (tourists, Olympic athletes, military, people who just want to get in shape) that go up the incline. The view is absolutely gorgeous!!! Unfortunately, our trip there was a big FAIL!!

We didn't even make 1/4 of it..I started to black out because my body doesn't circulate blood to well in high elevation. My body hasn't been producing much blood lately because of stress and lack of vital nutrients. PLUS my body's not fit enough for it...yet.

I did a really good job parallel parking too!! It was my first time so I was very proud and a bit cocky hahaha


We decided to go to Garden of the Gods instead and go "work out".
Garden of the Gods is a park that has many trails for hiking, walking, biking, etc.

My friends and I climbed the rocks and stuff..even though you're not supposed to but it's SO hard to resist!! Every time I go, I feel so adventurous and reckless hahaha

MAC BLUSH: Melba vs Instant Chic


Last week I went on and I was SO happy that they restocked Instant Chic blush from the Pret-a-papier collection. Not only that, but I got a free shipping code during that weekend!! I just had to get it, so I did!!

I heard that Instant Chic was similar or a dupe for Melba blush. But I don't see how that is :/

They are both in the same coral family, but in different groups.
Instant Chic is more pinky coral and Melba is more like a peachy orange coral.
The finishes are different as well. Instant Chic is a sheertone and Melba is a matte.

My recommendation: Get Instant Chic first before it's sold out! Melba is a permanent color so there's no rush.

REVIEW: Revlon, EOS, e.l.f.

I was going to make a video, but my timing always sucks so I hope you enjoy this VERY LONG review..sorry hehe

I saw these a week ago, and I decided to get the one in Peach Petal from the summer collection. I don't know how Revlon comes out with stuff, but Jessica Biel is promoting the summer line.

left to right: 130 Pink Whisper, 150 Peach Petal, 120 Pink Pursuit

right to left: Pink Whisper, Peach Petal, Pink Pursuit

The lipglosses are a mix of MAC's creamsheen glasses and tinted lipglasses.

-SPF 15 --> protects from sunlight
-creamy/milky like creamsheen glasses from MAC
-sheer but can build up color; more tinted than creamsheens
-price: $8.49-$8.99 USD at local drugstores, ULTA, Target, Walmart, wherever Revlon is sold

-tad bit on the sticky's in the middle between creamsheen and tinted lipglass stickiness.

Will I buy this product again? Maybe.
I like to change my lip glosses up a bit, so I think these will last me for a while.

Overall: 4/5

I'm sure a lot of you have seen these before..

-95% USDA organic and 100% natural.
-Paraben and petrolatum free.
-Contains shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba oil
-Moisturizes and smooths lips
-Has a light weight feeling on lips
-Not sticky compared to other lipbalms such as chapstick, carmax, burt's bees
-round shape helps to "stay in the lines" of lips when applying
-price: around $3.49 USD --> reasonable for organic lipbalm of a big size
-four flavors: passion fruit, honeysuckle honeydew, lemon drop, and sweet mint

-round packaging makes carrying the product difficult in pant pockets.

I like to put this on while I'm putting on my foundation so that my lips will be moisturized before I put on lipgoss or lipstick. I also put this on before I go to bed, so my lips will be moisturize throughout the night. When I wake up, my lips feel very soft compared to the next day.

I found mine at my local Walgreens, but they only had two flavors. I believe Target has all four, but I think they come together in a pack? I'm not sure, but I'll definitely check it out.

Last but not least

The first time I found about these were from Holly (blog:, youtube: THANK YOU HOLLY!! :]

I wanted to try them, so I went on the website to buy some and I will NEVER go back on that site and buy anything from there again. The products are cheap, but I don't want to pay $6-7 dollars on shipping. Because of that, I bought two of each which kind of pissed me off, but oh well. *shrug*

I got three colors

left to right: Candlelight, Pink Kiss, Watermelon

-packaging is simple and easy to use and carry.
-smell reminds me of the lipsmacker brand chapsticks
-slanted tip applicator
-sheer and somewhat tinted
-contains SPF 15
-stickiness similar to MAC tinted lipglass

overall: 3.5/5
-Will I buy this again? Maybe if the shipping didn't cost so much!
