It’s the Great Pumpkin! Quick, Someone Tell Charlie Brown!

Published in: Daily Photo

Every fall there’s this outdoor shopping center called the Marin Country Mart in the nearby town of Larkspur that has these HUGE pumpkins on display.

They aren’t for touching, or for sale, but smaller ones are.

Actually, they aren’t for sale either, so to speak. They’re on the honor payment system. You just take the pumpkin you want, and then leave your payment in a little box. The prices are based on pumpkin size and listed on a board.

That same place also hosts Off the Grid, which are these fancy traveling food trucks that are a thing here in the Bay Area (I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before).

I went last weekend for lunch with El Hub and my little brother. This time we all had Vietnamese fusion from the Little Green Cyclo truck.

Mine was fresh rice vermicelli with an egg on top, sweet potato tater tots and a coconut water to drink…

Kinda craving that again right now, can’t lie. :)

Quick hungry girl survey: how do you feel about shrimp? I’m always looking for a good recipe…

A Moody Model

Published in: Daily Photo

Your nephew wasn’t feeling it today, even after I showed him these Halloween cards I saw at Barnes & Noble last weekend.

He was a moody model all day long, and the only thing he said to me was, “sigh…”

I don’t think he was impressed by the cards either, due to the obvious lack of tabbies.

Sorry, Tabs, but black cats are in high demand and get all the best modeling jobs this time of year. :)

If I had a black-tie beachside gala to go to — assuming that there is such a thing — I’d be all about the browns and blues in this eyeshadow palette.

I want to go to there…ideally with Christopher Meloni (I’m sure El Hub would be cool with that). I like the idea of wearing shimmery sandy browns with a hint of sky blue as I snack on fancy scallop-kabobs washed down with bubbly. :)

Yup, Estee Lauder’s new Infamous Sky Palette ($50) suits that dream nicely…

Infamous Sky is one of the new Pure Color Envy Sculpting EyeShadow 5-Colors, a new line of creamy, plush powder eyeshadow palettes that partner wearable neutrals with richer pops of color, and they’re available now at Estee Lauder counters and also online.

So…sometimes I want to wear a smokey eye look, but I want it to just magically appear on my face, like POOF! All done. Instant smokey eye.

Basically, I want the smokey payoff part without all of the work, the blending.

That’s where palettes like the Colour Riche Ombre Quad in Incredible Grey ($9.99) by L’Oreal Paris are great. I’ll line my lash lines with a dark gray or gunmetal liner, smudge out the edges, and blend a deep gray shadow directly on top of the liner. Then I’ll line my water lines with a black kohl for a subtle gradient from black to gray.

I’ll keep it kind of messy on purpose…kind of rock ‘n’ roll.

By the way, these Colour Riche Ombre Quads are fab. The shadows are super pigmented, and the formula couldn’t be a whole lot easier to blend. Plus, they’re only $9.99 each.

Next time you swing by a drugstore, take a look. Incredible Grey and the other Colour Riche Ombre Quads are available now at drugstores, Ulta and online.
