Shape of My Heart

Published in: Daily Photo

It’s like something from a Robert Jordan book! There were dragons in front of The Cheesecake Factory!

Actually, these delightful creatures aren’t winged reptiles. They’re some flowers I saw living in planters right in front of the restaurant last Sunday, and look! — the one at the top forms the shape of a heart.

See, babe, love is everywhere. Even in the drought-resistant succulents at the mall. :)

My Fine Lines Like Tarte’s New Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector a Little Too Much

Maybe if I sleep for 18 hours one day and wake up feeling like a brand new girl, I might be able to wear Tarte’s Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector ($24) and get a lot out of it, but since that probably will not be happening (#teamnosleep), I don’t think I can pull it off.

Tarte calls this new creamy under-eye concealer full coverage, but I dunno… On me it’s pretty sheer. Plus, it settles into my fine lines (boo!) and makes my under-eye area look dry (grrr).

It comes in two shades, Light-Medium and Medium-Tan; both are available now at Tarte counters and online.

Adventures in Cheesecake Factory-osity

That crispy basil, though!

I wish I could take credit for this beautiful plate of spaghetti and meatballs (OMG! The fried basil on top!), but alas, to quote Shaggy, it wasn’t me.

The dream makers at The Cheesecake Factory are responsible for this dish, which El Hub enthusiastically consumed.

Yup, I went back again last weekend for the grilled salmon. :)

I brought most of it home because I was already kind of full after the avocado egg roll appetizer. (“Avocado, Sun-Dried Tomato, Red Onion and Cilantro Fried in a Crisp Wrapper. Served with a Tamarind-Cashew Dipping Sauce.”)

I don’t even want to know how much sweat equity I’m going to have to put in after that meal, but man! — that ish was great.

You know what I just realized? I don’t remember the last time I actually had cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory… I’m always too full by the end of the meal to get dessert.

I’d like the usual, please

Oh, the miles I’ll have to run…

It’s all about the brown bread

Cheers!

Try the $15 NYX La Fleur Lip Gloss Set for Everyday Pinks and Peaches

Published in: Daily Photo

NYX La Fleur Lip Gloss Set (2)

Oui, ma cherie, I could spend all day looking at the NYX 5-Piece La Fleur Lip Gloss Set.

These pinks and peaches are the exact same versions of those shades that I always like to have with me in purse. They’re my perfect everyday colors.

This $15 kit is like a slightly understated, more neutral version of NYX’s The Legends Lip Set, and the two kits have a few things in common. The La Fleur lipglosses also have that same Sour Patch candy taste and scent (The sweet part, like how they taste at first. Not the sour part.) that lasts about two hours on me, and they also apply pretty sheer.

Only thing is…I can’t easily tell them apart on my pigmented pout, so I’ll use them more for layering to tone down bright pink, peach and coral lip products than as standalone glosses.

The $15 La Fleur Lip Gloss set is available now online and wherever NYX is sold.

Meet My New Neighbor, Charlotte

Charlotte the Spider

She’s a good listener, and you know how some neighbors make a lot of noise? Well, Charlotte’s really quiet. :)

She lives on the deck between a cherry tomato plant and a bell pepper. Next time you swing by, I’ll introduce you.

Speaking of bell peppers, I have a question for the green thumbs out there.

Uh…how do you tell when green bell peppers are ripe?

Mine look plump, and green, but they’re still kind of small (the biggest one fits in the palm of my hand), so I can’t tell. A lot of the veggies I grow on the deck are in planters and don’t usually get huge like grocery store size.

I’m wondering, though, should I pick it now or wait?
