How much beauty can one girl spot over the course of 24 hours?
The answer: a lot.
Like interesting typography that feeds my inner word nerd while it tickles my eyeballs.
December 1, 5:18 p.m. — I’m taking pictures of Benefit’s new boxed blush, but it’s slow going because I’m distracted by the interesting fonts on the box. The blush is called Hervana, a shimmery, peachy pinkish berry ($28).
Hervana doesn’t officially hit counters and stores until January, but if you’re not one for waitin’, set Siri to remind you on Monday, December 5, that Hervana will be available for early sale, one day only, at Benefit online.
December 1, 9:36 p.m. — I’m sitting on the couch and flipping through the DVR menu with the remote… I open the folder for Pop-Up Video to see if any new shows have been recorded (and they have!).
There’s only episode (shoot!), but it’s dedicated to Justin Timberlake videos (YES!).
Oh, yeah… Bring that sexy back, JT. Bring it right here.
December 1, 11:11 p.m. — Bedtime. I lie down. Moments later, Tabs jumps on my chest for his nightly post-gravy snuggles.
He tucks his head beneath my chin and exhales a long, exhausted sigh. He stays like that, completely still, until I fall asleep.
December 2, 10:02 a.m. — I fiendishly tear into a couple of pieces from Guerlain’s spring 2012 collection.
Pink, pink and more pink!
Rouge G in 72 Rose Innocent ($48) and Ecrin 4 Couleurs in Les Roses ($59) are coming in January to select Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bloomingdales and Bergdorf Goodman stores.
Oh! — I think my heart just skipped a beat…
There it goes again. Could this be my spring love?
December 2, 3:18 p.m. — It’s been a long week, and I decide to reward myself with a slice of cheesecake and an at-home mani/pedi with two of these polishes from Nails Inc. The question is, which ones?
Stimulus overload. So…many…sparkles…and…shiny…colors… So many polish combinations.
It’s like a metaphor for life, in a way. So many possibilities, and so many opportunities to shine.
I know, I know… I’m a cheese ball, but just in case you haven’t heard it yet today, you are amazing.
How about you? Have you spotted any random acts of beauty lately? I’d love to hear about ‘em if you have.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
