Urban Decay NAKED 2 is out!

Yesterday, 1.12.2011 it was announced!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette is Out!

Naked2

And just look how beautiful it is, I cant wait to get a hold of it. The first lot was sold out, all in under a day. Next week there will be more out for sale, so get in line girls.

Right now it’s only out in the states. In early January Debenhams in UK will have a pre-launch, and in February additional retailers will launch. I can imagine people sleeping outside the stores queuing a week before,…maybe.

Naked2

If you remember, the first Naked came with a mini eyeshadow primer potion ( Check out my review here). The Naked2 has a very cute mini Lip Junkie Lipgloss in the colour ‘Naked’,  and a double-ended Good Karma shadow/crease brush. The palette itself consists of 12 gorgeous shades ranging from matte to sparkly. There’s a matte highlight shade and a matte black, beautiful! And there’s FIVE new shades. It’s fair to say my fingers are itching to make new beautiful looks with this palette.

The price for this beauty is £36 in the UK, and $50 in the US.  Well done on the pricing UD. Now if only you had enough in stock!

Half marathon update – It’s BERLIN!

I think a quick update is in order, first and foremost to tell I have now registered to the Berlin Half Marathon which is to be held at the 1st of April 2012.

Woohooo *claps hands*  OH YEAH!!

Secondly to say, that because of  some misunderstanding with dates we will not be running the Potsdam run. I first thought this would be at the end of April, it isn’t!  It is at the beginning of June, which is slap bang in the middle of my exam period. So even though I’m pretty sure that come exam time I wish I had a proper reason to be outside running rather than being cooped up inside studying. (That was a long sentence-sorry.) I’m being clever in deciding now that my education is more important than doing a run. But there’s no reason to whinge, I’m doing the Berlin one instead, which is just as amazing as Potsdam.

This is the course of the run, going right through the city of Berlin. I’m really looking forward to run through the park and past the river. I might jump in for a cooling swim after the run – if it’s legal.   I hope it’s legal!

That’s it for now, more updates on training, preparation and whatnots later on.

Running a Half Marathon!

So OMG, it has now been decided! My good friend and fellow ‘ToneItUpSister’  Franzi and I are running our first half marathon. This will be happening in Germany at the end of April 2012. More direct, in Potsdam just outside Berlin.

The rest of this month we will be reading up on tips and techniques, and get all prepped for our training. We will also find a running schedule that fits us. A good schedule is crucial for a good and steady training. It will be very hard and difficult at times and it’s then important to have a well developed schedule, that we feel comfortable with, to follow. To have someone to train with is essential. Even though she lives in a different country than I we will still have daily contact of our process, keep each other motivated and push each other whenever that’s needed.I think there will be a lot of pushing and butt-kicking. There’s no slacking through workouts.  🙂

When 1st of September arrives we will both be prepped to start our training. I’m imagining sleeping in running clothes and shoes, popping out of bed to rush out for a run in the early hours of the day. This is our official start of the training, it will give us 8 months to get ready for the big day.

We can do this, lets power through!

Sushi, Coffee and some Summer Retail Therapy

The other day I met my friend in town for some coffee and sushi, as normal, and then ended the day with some shopping, also as normal. 🙂

Oooh, I just got a coffee from my boyfriend, now this I can like.

So sushi, as always, was great. I love sushi. Whilst ignoring all sushi etiquette like; don’t mix wasabi into the soya sauce, don’t roll the sticks to get the ‘splints’ off and don’t eat half a nigiri, then put it down and finish it afterwards, I enjoyed it to my fullest. On the other hand , the option of not eating half is to stuff my mouth with a big bit of fish and rice, and in no way whatsoever look elegant or decent. I think I made the right decision.

I didn’t buy much, just some cheap & cheerful bracelets from H&M and a summery lacy scarf. But I needed that, its not fun sweating around in big flabby wooly wintery ones. So that was nice!

I took the effort to take some pictures, and here they are.  🙂 Let me know what you think.
