Happy Thanksgiving, ladies! Guess who’s back in the foggy Yea Area, aka home.
I hope you’re having a great day so far. Is there a turkey in your immediate future?
I was sitting here at my computer, daydreaming about food, when I remembered that last year I made a list of 43 makeup and beauty related things I was thankful for. It was a play on the website 43things.
I can’t believe that was a year ago… I swear — the older I get, the faster time flies!
For sure, there’s much more to life than makeup, but for now here are 43 more (makeup and beauty) things I’m thankful for, *raises glass*.
