Play! By SephoraOuai Treatment Mask
I'm a little disappointed that this sample is so tiny, because I could only try it out twice. I'm not sure if it really made a difference in my hair, but I did seem to have good hair days after using this. It's currently sold out on Sephora's website, so who knows if I'll end up trying more!
Tarte FRXXXTION Stick
Finally...a skincare product that I love and isn't $$$. This is an exfoliating cleanser that you just smear on your face (no messy hands to deal with..score!). The first time I tried this, I rinsed it off immediately, and the second time I left it on for about 8 minutes. My face felt soft and looked great after rinsing it off both times, so I'm thinking of buying this in the future.
Youth to the People Cream
I've been using this as a moisturizer after I shower at the gym (I love this bag because I get so many minis to put in my gym bag!) and it's fine. I don't see anything special about it but I like it!
Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact
Unfortunately this didn't match my skin at all, and I don't wear foundation anyway.
Clinique Almost Lipstick
I actually have this same lipstick in a mini that I got as a gift with purchase years ago. I like the shade, because it's a pretty berry color that's buildable and comfortable. I'm happy to have a backup but a little bummer to get a product that I already own!

Working on My Form
I've been trying to make small changes to my form in order to be more efficient and get faster, and have been learning a lot about cadence. Right now, my normal cadence is around 164 steps per minute, and my goal is to get closer to 180. There are a lot of tips on how to get there, and I found this article really helpful. I also saw some advice on reddit, where someone suggested using a metronome on runs to hit a goal or use the cadence capability in Spotify.
On Wednesday night/Thursday in Australia, Venus Williams won her semi final match at the Australian Open. Her reaction was priceless and she seemed just like a giddy girl! I can't wait to watch the finals match between Venus and Serena..it's definitely going to be one for the ages.
