    So my order from that https://www.shopmissa.com/ came in yesterday! The items were small, but pretty good. I liked that I can experiment with different products and shades and try the new trends without spending a bunch. I got some orange and gold eye shadows, a blush I'm trashing because it's literally hooker pink, a small sample of loose powder and a perfect mauve lip liner. Now I'm going back for earrings and more stuff!

    Re: Things that make you smile

    I'm buzzing right now. So a few months back I changed my eating habits (I blogged about it at the time so won't repeat myself here) I finally got curious and measured my thighs. They seemed slimmer but I wasn't sure if that was just because the rest of me was bigger. To my surprise I've lost 3.5cm from the widest part and 3cm from the narrowest part of my right thigh. Left thigh is 4.5cm thinner at the widest point, and 3.5cm thinner at the narrowest point. I've also lost 3cm from around my hips.

    Granted it took 3 months when I could have lost that in under 2 weeks by crash dieting but I did this by eating properly including lots of healthy fats. I have a better, toned look and best of all I don't have such a gaunt face or protruding bones. Got quite chubby little hamster cheeks when I smile in fact!

    And I'm doing that right now.. from ear to ear! (○^人^○)

    Thanksgiving. I'm headed out to friends out in the country for the day. It's always a good time out there, and kinda weird! Everybody have a happy - and those of you in countries other than the USA, you can raise a toast to us - you know we need it LOL

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Thanksgiving and I'm off! Thank Satan! And what am I doing? My rule is it's jammies all day, even if I leave to go to the store for Diet Coke.

    Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving. We might not celebrate here on Blighty, but I think we could all benefit from counting our blessings now and then, so I can drink to that!

    There is no way anyone could have convinced me to add fats and oils to my food a year ago. I'd have said it was a cruel gimmick to sell faddy diet books that just make you fatter. Once I realised how much the endocrine system affects our physical and mental health, and that we need fatty acids to build hormones I decided to give in and start eating the foods I've avoided for most of my adult life. Never expected the result would be weight loss. That's just crazy!

    Yeah you need a certain amount of fats in your diet or your body doesn't work. I eat too many and just get fat tho...

    Probably not the place for it, but I'm obsessed with this subject so can't help myself. I really believe that when people gain weight it's more likely what they're eating with the fats rather than the amount. I think most people would be shocked if they knew how much fat I consume these days. There's even a diet out there telling you fat should be up to 80% of your daily calories (although I'm skeptical of that one because it doesn't leave much space for veg).

    You don't appear to have a weight problem at all, but if fat makes you gain weight, I would suggest it's a hormone thing. Estrogen if it's around hips and thighs, thyroid if it's all over and cortisone if you gain around your middle.

    I'm totally sold on the endocrine approach now and will never again believe that people who are overweight just eat too much. Some do, but they're far rarer than we're led to believe! Most people with weight problems really do try to control it. They're just given poor advice.

    Of course, I've also been doing visualisation and affirmations so if the eating fat to get thin idea really sounds like bunk, then I guess we'll have to agree that visualisation works!

    On Saturday I caught up with some friends I haven't seen in over a year. They all said how much healthier I looked, and they even said I looked younger than I had looked a year earlier. I'm still buzzing from that.
