When I saw them popping up them last week, I had a little pang of sadness. I’ll miss winter layers and having the beach cycle paths to myself. Fair weather people and tourists on sunny days are already descending to Barceloneta. The city and beaches will soon feel a lot busier with little breathing space. But it ain’t all bad. The return of the chiringuitos mean 3 things: warm days are nearly here, in 2 weeks daylight savings start and if I get caught out running, I have pit stop options!
I hope you had a great weekend! My was kinda quiet, so I’ll leave you with my usual way of catching up, photos!
Sephora’s Colorguard 12hr Eyeshadow Primer. I’ve been having issues with on/off eczema on my eyelids and that combined with my wrinkly eyelids (it’s no joke. Smooth eyelids I do not have) and oily skin inherited from my mother (okay and not removing eye make up gently = wrinkly eyelids. Google it!), my eyelids eat eyeshadow for breakfast. I’ve used Urban Decay’s anti age eyeshadow primer and Too Faced’s shadow insurance primer and both make the wrinkly creased eyelid situation worse (I Goggled wrinkly eyelids and primer can make them worse!). So far this gem from Sephora is better than both of the 2 mentioned. Plus it’s a lot nicer price and lessens the effect of old looking eyelids. I made the zoo Saturday after missing the gates all week. This weekend they switch to Spring hours. Gates close at 6pm, grounds 7pm. I’ll probably still miss last entry.
Wallaby tongue! I haven’t seen robins in years. This year I’ve seen 2 at the zoo. I grew up in a house called The Robins, named by my parents as when we moved there, there were lots of robins. Not that I remember seeing any. Seeing this guy made smile. Perhaps s/he’s telling me something! Foggy sunrise over the Med.Monkey bars and 12km Sunday Run. I hadn’t been on the monkey bars for a few weeks and it showed! On my palms. No blisters, redness which turned into callouses. Muscles ups I have been practicing at the gym. Still on bar chin height (I use the Smith machine at the gym. For stability even though it’s locked in place while increasing height I put 10kg either side for piece of mind it won’t unlock jumping up), but I didn’t embarrass myself in front of the 6-7 years olds partying on the beach.
