Man, there’s like some weird temporal vortex Arthur C. Clarke thing going on inside the Sephora by my house. Today I meant to just run in and get a tube of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, thinking that I’d be in and out of there in two swishes of a tabby’s tail but, uh, that totally didn’t happen.
I don’t know how long I was in there, but it was long enough to add all of this to my ever-growing makeup wish list…
And look who was performing at the Benefit counter!
Cute, yah? I discovered today that I have a soft spot for striped orange circus kitties… You really do learn something new every day.
Have you added anything new to your makeup wish list lately?
The New York Times Dialect Map
Thought you might find this interesting: this New York Times Dialect Quiz really works!
I did it the other day, and it was spot on for me. At the end it shows you three cities you might be from based on your speech patterns.
It’s just a series of questions (took me about 5 minutes), like, “how do you refer to a large group of people?” Do you say “y’all” or “you guys”? And how do you pronounce “aunt”? Do you say “ant” or “ont”?
My three cities were all in Northern California, which is where I’m from! And they’re all near placed I’ve lived. Fremont is the town next door to Union City, where I grew up, and Santa Rosa is a few miles north of where I live now.
This validates it: I am a California girl through and through.
If you take the quiz, let me know if it gets it right.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
