Sleep Drunk + Lash Love
Hello gorgeous, generous, kind people! You are all too nice to me sometimes. Your comments on my cracked-out post made my sleep-drunk day shiny.
You know how people say they’re love drunk? I think this applies to sleep too, except, when you don’t get enough. After getting a touch over three hours of sleep Wednesday night, I felt dizzy, wobbly and, well, drunk. It made me do crazy things, too!
Yes, that is my high school golf team sweatshirt. Any Kings High Schoolers out there? Any golfers? About wearing sweatshirts to class– I have nothing against this. It’s an odd thing about me in that I feel disrespectful to professors when I’m not dressed in my usual ‘fits. At least I classed it up with skinnies and kicks.
Sleep drunkenness also threw off my appetite. No, that’s not the right word. It enhanced it. My already-hefty hunger grew and made me devour delicious snacks like this:
Alternative Baking Company, I love you, but why do you try to say that there are two servings in this:
So maybe I ate nearly 500 calories of cookie for a morning snack. Well spent, my friends. And thank the lawd I don’t keep track of that! I know I normally don’t talk about calories on the blog (there’s no need for it in the SnackFace realm), but I thought I needed to share that absurd serving suggestion.
Being sleep drunk also led me to eat this two times within 12 hours (once at 9pm, Wednesday, and once at 8am, Thursday):
Another side effect of sleep drunk is laziness. Enter una salada da chickpea for dinner:
It also made me not take pictures of other goodies eaten throughout the day. (Imagine: grapefruit, leftover squash, soy crisps with hummus, slice of bread with hummus.)
Thankfully, responsible, foodie me took pictures of all her scrumptious eats on Wednesday. I kicked it off with the fabulous:
In the bowl: 1/2 C Dannon Greek yogurt (so good!), 1/3 C oats made with water, cinnamon and stevia, more cinnamon and stevia and a wall of peanut butter. It was exquisite:
After breaking the fast, I finished my eight-page film essay. Finishing major projects and papers makes me feel on top of my life. What a phenom feeling! This feeling is what motivates me. I get this odd homework buzz and can’t stop. (Whoah, so many unintentional and intentional references to mild-altering substances. I’m sorry!)
I hopped to the gym and ellipticalled with my Media Law book. Fair trial-free press readings made for a thrilling 50 minutes. Abbage and armage followed cardio (-age).
By the time I walked home, showered and dressed, it had been five hours since my last meal. Fixed that with a crazy-delicious sandwich:
My egg vocabulary is weak. I need your help. When the egg white and yolk are sturdy and firm, does that mean it’s over…hard? I hope so.
The sandwich layout:
Once the glorious lunch hour subsided, I geared up in none other than…:
Media Law class was a treasure. Always is.
I walked my booty home and ran into someone I’d tell you about if this were more Sex and the City, less SnackFace: Fashion with an Appetite. Saving materials for my eventual book behind the blog, ya dig?
I relaxed at home for a bit and then supped:
On the plizzate: half roasted acorn squash, roasted brussels, half boiled sweet tater and balls. Eaten with ketchup and barbecue sauce, this dinner was perfection. Until an hour later, when I got hungry, started eating and didn’t stop. The things we must do as students in order to stay awake!
Before I sat down to write this, I ran to Walmart to pick up a few of my favorite things:
I haven’t had Dark Chocolate Dreams in whole year! Shame on me. Naturally, I’ve been SnackFacing on this while crafting this post:
If you guessed that half the box is already gone, you’d be correct. Monthly gift (hi Popsicle!)+ no sleep= supah starving SnackFace.
And because this post isn’t jumbled enough, I’d love to share the mascara I’ve been using for a week now. I selected this one because I’d never tried it and it was a decent price:
ExtraVolume Pros: It takes only two coats to get this rich color and voluminous look. The applicator allows me to reach every little hair I desire.
ExtraVolume Cons: There is too much mascara on the applicator, which has made it goopy already. Also, while it does pump up my lashes, it doesn’t give as much volume as LashBlast does. Plus, a week later, the mascara is clumping on my lashes.
Mascara, one week later:
Overall: L’Oreal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen mascara goes on easily, but tends to clump and flake after a few uses. I’m open to makeup suggestions you’d like me to test!
Well kidlets, now that I’ve taken you from sleep drunk to beauty products, I think it’s time I head to bed. I hope you all have FEROCIOUS Fridays! Love you all so much and seriously value every one of you. Thank you for reading!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: Does sleep affect your appetite? AND What drugstore beauty product would you like me to test next?
