Meet Ekstasis

It's me and my troupe. Woo hoo. Just me and troupe. Just me and troupe. Just me and troupe.
( I was channeling Tupac there. Sorry.)

Anyway, we have to get our arses in gear with choreography. There's a hafla coming up and the one newest sloooooow song is in dire need of moves.

Oh AND we're seeing Beats Antique on 4/20-- which is AWESOME because our first piece ever was/is to their song, "Beauty Beats."

Anyway, this is us. Belly dancing is love... and weight-loss motivation-- even moreso than gyaru fashion.

Samples are Loved!

Pretty decently sized, eh?
So I went to Lord & Taylor to get another bottle of Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and came out with a bunch of unexpected samples. Two of my favorites are the High Impact Mascara and the Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in #05 Rock Violet.  I swear this shade can work for every complexion.

Anyway, the products are both great in coverage and long lasting. That's pretty important to most of us, right? Also, they really do help in making a 5 minute face that pops. Couple with some eyeliner (I use MAC fluidline gel liner) and all is well. Crease contour is optional, but I find myself doing it often (with MAC eyeshadow color Embark). I chose to stick with just the Clinique Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in the photo below.
Blurry, but you get the point!

I've been dieting and exercising regularly. Before I would stop and start and just be generally inconsistent. Well now I'm happy that I'm hanging in there. I've lost 5 pounds in the past month and kept it off so hopefully I can do the same or better in the next 30 days.

I know it's vain, but I'm mostly losing weight for fashion. It's just easier to shop when you're smaller-- and cheaper! Blah blah blah. I've got the whole sexy secretary fashion going for me lately. LOTS of cute stockings/nylons/tights (whatever they call 'em wherever you are). Por ejémpo, today I'm wearing a purple cap-cleeved button-up top with a black spaghetti-strapped cami (no lace ~.~ I fail). I have a black pinstriped pencil skirt on and the combo is really figure flattering. I'm busty and have nice legs, but I'm lacking in booty so skirts look better on me than pants. I have these great floral lace stockings on and they work surprisingly well with the ensemble. I will post a photo to my Twitter or something later. My shoes for today are nothing special. Couldn't find my black slingbacks! In the meantime, here are my lacy legs!

 I got them from Lane Bryant for $18
