Hi! It’s time for another edition of Phyrra Says Vol. 9. I really need to come up with a better name for this series. Anyone have an idea?
Phyrra Says Vol. 9
All products except Too Faced Melted Ruby & Melted Fuchsia purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

Anyway, in the video I discuss that I’ve finally had some progress with working out. I’m down from 35.8 % to 34 % (the trainer had stated 36%, the paperwork he gave me actually said 35.8%). I’ve only seen that progress since starting with the new trainer. The old trainer didn’t get us anywhere.
Between the 3 of us, we’re going through 1 container of the Pure Protein a week! I’ve been making a protein shake for breakfast for Dave and I. Sometimes I have one for lunch, too. Ray and I always have one after we get back from the gym.
For two people I do 4 scoops of protein powder, 1.5 cups of unsweetened almond milk and 1 to 1.5 cups of frozen strawberries or frozen blueberries or a mixture of both.
I’ll have to share some of the hair inspiration that I’ve seen with you in another post, but I’m definitely looking at longer styles and lusting.
I started a new series of books by Diana Rowland. While she’s got a series of books called My Life as a White Trash Zombie for all you zombie lovers out there, I’m reading her demon series. I love my kindle fire <3
- Mark of the Demon
- Blood of the Demon
- Secrets of the Demon
- Sins of the Demon
- Touch of the Demon
- Fury of the Demon
Game of Thrones is back! Yay! I’m happy about that. Sadly I never get to watch the episodes when they air, so they’re on my DVR and I’ll watch them when Ray and Dave both have time to see them. I’m rooting for Daenerys Targaryen all the way.
You can get your own House Targaryan shirt from ThinkGeek!
Phaedra’s Thundershirt seems to be working. My darling standard poodle has been doing better during the infrequent storms that we’ve had.
I think my Nest Thermostat (2nd generation) is really neat. I love that it learns what temperature I want it to be. I bought it from amazon for 2 reasons:
- Amazon has an excellent return policy if I have a problem, unlike many other companies and websites out there
- I have Amazon Prime membership and shipping, so it got here fast.
And speaking of Amazon, Amazon has a sub-site Amazon Smile, where you can choose a charity and a portion of each purchase you make through Amazon Smile goes to that charity. I, of course, chose the Florida Poodle Rescue! I wish I had known about this site years ago! I would have started using it sooner. I’m making every purchase that I can through Amazon Smile from now on. There’s even a Firefox extension to add a button to your browser and I think there’s one for Chrome too.
I love my Ellagee Dolphins of the Caribbean polish. It’s part of the Dolphins, What? Collection. It was $9.50 for cuteness in a bottle.
My Wayne Goss the Eye Set brushes arrived. I’m so glad I bought them. I love the Goss brushes.
I’m so happy that the Too Faced Melted Candy lipstick that I purchased during the Sephora VIB sale arrived. Melted Ruby and Melted Fuchsia are press samples. This means my review will be up this week! It doesn’t look like Melted Candy is currently available on Sephora’s site, though it was during the sale.
I’m very happy to finally have my Kat Von D Chrysalis Eyeshadow (cool toned) palette that I also ordered during the sale (you can see everything else I hauled here). The Monarch (warm toned) palette looks beautiful, but I didn’t want to buy it since I wasn’t sure I would use the colors.
So this is what’s been going on with me. What’s been going on with you? Delurk, say hi and let me know below!
