I hate that it’s socially unacceptable for adults in polite company to spontaneously sing and dance. I mean, it was acceptable in high school, right? — when we’d all go buck wild at the drive-thru to Madonna’s Holiday in Jen’s old Datsun (WHITE LIGHTNIN’ FOR EVA!!) — so why can’t people who are old enough to vote also sing their favorite Top 40 hits in line at the DMV?
I miss being able to get away with things like that (not that one exactly, though). At some point on the road from adolescence to adulthood, spontaneous singing and dancing goes from being an acceptable way to blow off steam, to being something only tolerated from adults who are inebriated, filming a video, or busting moves in a flash mob at the mall.
Well ptooey! on that. We can dance if we want to (we can leave our cares behind), and what better time to dance than while looking at pics and swatches of the new Bobbi Brown Holiday Collection, available now at BB counters and also online.
I can still do the choreo to this dance; my 8-year-old self would be proud
Can you spare a few minutes to add a little sparkle to your eyes and cheeks?
Even if you aren’t obsessed with makeup, I think you might really like this launch (it’s mostly eye palettes, with a lip gloss trio thrown in for variety) because the colors aren’t scary. The neutrals, plums and single blip of blue lend a polished look to professionals who aren’t interested in overly bright, blingy holiday looks.
Take a peek at four of the seven pieces here, and let me know if you see anything you like.
