For the most part, I think being a woman ROCKS, but the occasional mood swings = not my favorite part of being a girl.
Today I was fine until five, at which time a bit of crankiness crept in (caused by a combination of the weather and my efforts to avoid refined sugar). But instead of unleashing my inner BRAT-A-SAUR, I nipped it in the bud with beauty.
I started with these NARS blushes, which I’ve had since Christmas but never really played with until now.
Powder Blush in Sin, $26
From there I moved on to…
First row: Eyeko Fat Balm in Strawberry, Minty and Raspberry. Second row: Tarte Natural Lip Creme Pencil in Lust and Charmed. Third row: Shu Uemura Egerie Blush and Highlight. Fourth row: NARS Cream Blush in Cactus Flower and NARS Powder Blush in Sin
It’s amazing how a little bit of makeup soothes the savage beast. I felt much better by the end of my mini-swatch/pic fest. I guess the grumpiness worked its way out of my pores like garlic, ha ha.
This week’s reading
Yesterday afternoon El Hub and I had lunch with some friends and hung out with Jules. Jules is half Indian, half Polish, and 100% heartbreaker! She was a little camera shy, though, so you can’t see her awesome gray-blue eyes.
After lunch I stopped by Barnes & Noble to find something to read. It actually came down to a choice between Lauren Conrad’s L.A. Candy (don’t hate; it’s a NY Times bestseller!) and Sara Gruen’s Water for Elephants. I went with my better judgement this time (LOL!) and picked the latter.
I’m only two chapters in but enjoying it so far. The writing’s snappy. Hopefully the ending doesn’t let me down like the last book I read (which I’m STILL quite bitter about).
What are you reading these days? Anything good?
