Will it work?

I'm having a really hard time believing that this product works since the model here is from a season of America's Next Top Model {Eugena Washington} and she doesn't actually have any of these dark spots.  Sure it's the ad and they have to ... lie?  I've read reviews that this stuff doesn't work and I've read some where people state it worked like magic.  So, here lies my problem....I have a small dark spot near my eye...which can totally be covered up with makeup but I really want to see if this stuff eliminates it...but for $49.50 for 1oz that is pretty steep.  Also, the description of the product on even states only 53% improvement!

So I just hit up ebay and currently I have a bid for $25...well see if I get it...fingers crossed.  I am also considering seeing if Sephora will give me a free sample.  I've gotten samples from there before so maybe I can try it for free.

So no dice on the ebay hook up.  I was out bid and now the price is approaching full price.  So I took my lunch break and headed over to Sephora and....I GOT A FREE SAMPLE.  So the chick at Sephora told me that I am not going to get any results from this free sample since it takes at least 12 weeks to work and that I might have to buy NUMEROUS bottles before seeing results.  That comment made me think of this scene from Sweeney Todd....

So do you think it doesn't work but Clinique knows that women are desperate to "stay young" so they will use anything and pay anything in the hopes that it will work?  Well here's a picture of my free sample from Sephora and the spot on my face is really small so this COULD last awhile and heck I'll just go back and get more.  So starting today (used some at the store May 31st) I will make note of whether or not this spot goes away or lightens.  See you in 12 weeks (hopefully sooner) with some results!
Also here's a picture of the dark spot....
OMG my eye looks wrinkly...LOL!

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
