“Calgon, take me away…”
I had one of those moments today, but my escort away from drama wasn’t Calgon. It was Bare Escentuals, with their new bareMinerals holiday collection of bright, shimmery colors in kits with names like Things That Make You Glow.
Today was a little challenging. It got off to a good start, but when Tabs found out that I’m heading out of town this weekend, he went ballistic, unleashing a litany of diva demands, all of which he wants met by the time I leave on Friday.
I finished the easy ones — making arrangements for his favorite pet sitter, bringing one of the zinnia plants in the house, programming the Tivo to record Cats 101 — but then it got tough. He also wants an XXL kitty ascot (has to be silk) and a two-day supply of organic, gluten-free, non-GMO gravy.
Yeah, that’s not gonna happen…
All I have to say is thank goodness for makeup. I would have lost my marbles today if it hadn’t been for Things That Make You Glow, Box of Gems and R.S.V.P. — a few of the kits in the big Bare Escentuals bareMinerals holiday collection.
“I refuse to look at you until you bring home my ascot…”

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Kinda random, but I had one of those “You know you’re a font freak” moments at Trader Joe’s earlier this week when I spotted this bag of roasted butternut squash risotto…
Love that scripty font…
I brought it home and made it for dinner last night. Turned out to be pretty good but not epic (I had it with a cup of TJ’s roasted corn soup). I like that it only required one pan and 10 minutes to prep, though. That part was pretty great.
P.P.S. If you happen to be in the Santa Monica area this weekend, come say hi! I’ll be speaking on a panel about beauty blogging on Sunday, 10/23, at an event called The Beauty Social. I would love to meet you.
