Shaun the Sheep Backpack!

We took a trip to Nishimatsuya this evening so that I could buy Miyu extra swimming sets for school. I ended up finding this super cute Shaun the Sheep backpack and it was a lucky find since it was the last one. (。♥‿♥。)

End-of-the-Month Weigh-in: July

This month’s weight loss = 0.4 lbs (⌣_⌣”)

Total weight loss overall = 9.6 lbs

Clearly, I fell off the band-wagon this month. I had a bit of a minor stomach bug that lasted almost two weeks and that really threw me off eating wise. I’m only now just starting to get back into keto mode. I’m still eating a bit of rice on the weekends but I’m fine with that, and lately I’ve been eating some toast over the weekend as well. *shrugs* What can I say? I’m totally enjoying my short break from school. Starting August 19, I’ll be taking on three classes so…God help me.

Lip balm quest

For the longest time, I’ve been searching for lip products that don’t irritate my lips (peeling issues mainly). The only moisturizing products that I can safely put on my lips is Aquaphor and Vaseline. But I mean, I like to have color on my lips whenever I’m out—including work—so I’m on a quest for the perfect lip balm, preferably one that contains SPF. I want something that moisturizes and also provides decent color coverage. Today I bought these ones from my favorite drug store, CREATE. One from the DHC brand and two from the Mentholatum brand that I’ve been really digging lately. I’ve seen rave reviews about the DHC one on Youtube so we’ll see if it lives up to the hype. It doesn’t have SPF but if it doesn’t make my lips peel, I’ll be impressed.
