Girls Day Out

It's been a long time since Zainab and I were able to get together and have a girls day.. heels and all. We're both really tall naturally Masha'Allah (God has willed it) so we like to plan when we wear heels so we can both be extra tall together.

Outfit of the Day:
Zainab's top is from Forever 21. My top is listed in my previous post and my jeans are Cult of Individuality. I got them at Marshall's for only $30. My Michael Kors bag is also from Marshalls for $150 compared to the original $300+. I wear this bag everywhere so the price was worth the amount of usage I get out of it. Marshalls is my go to shop for fairly priced designer finds. You just have to dig! Most Marshalls have a new section called "the cube" which has nice designer brands. Most of my Seven brand jeans are from Marshalls for $30 each. You can search for Marshalls locations with the cube by clicking here: Marshalls Locations

Both our heels are from: Bakers Shoes

The ring I'm wearing is the 3 piece ring from my last post.

Beauty Tip of the Day:
The trick to nude & healthy lips: While brushing your teeth, brush your lips with your toothbrush to get rid of dead skin. Prior to putting on any nude lipgloss, I put the same concealer I use on my face on my lips to make them almost my skin color, then I apply gloss on top. The gloss is about the same color nude as my concealer so it blends well. 

I use MAC Pro Longwear Concealer on my lips and Sephora Shiny Perfect Nude lipgloss on top.

Good Eats:
If I know I'm going to go out to eat, I eat light earlier in the day. When I wake up I drink a tall glass of water with lemon juice before eating breakfast. Today before I went to the gym I ate half a wheat tortilla with a little peanut butter, half a banana sliced and a drizzle of honey all rolled up. After the gym and before lunch I drank a lot of water. Water helps keep you full so you don't go looking for needless food intake. Before every meal I drink at least a cup of water to help control how much I eat. 

We ate on the patio at a place called Nandos. I tried a veggie burger since I only eat Zabiha halal. They didn't have wheat bread and I forgot to say no mayo, so I just took off the top bun with the mayo and ate the rest. It was really good! Zainab had a portobello mushroom sandwich and she loved it. Of course, we had to get froyo, it was right across the street. Those dogs were about the same size as us! Tonight, I will probably eat some chicken I made last night with salad. Nothing heavy, just small and light since I already had a big lunch. 

Move that Butt:
I was told to go easy at the gym for the weekend since I hurt my knee running a few days ago. I only did 35 minutes of cardio on the eliptical and 30 minutes of abs and arms. Insha'Allah (God Willing) my knee will be better Monday and I can get back in my more intense routine.
