Hey, friend. How’s Wednesday treating you? Sorry if it seems like I haven’t been around as much as usual, especially in the comments, but I’ve been a little out of sorts. It started with a bad case of writer’s block yesterday, which I think I’m still recovering from. I feel much better today, but it still wore me out.
I feel selfish complaining with everything going on in the world, but who else can I tell if not you? Unless it involves gravy, Tabs isn’t concerned.
Even though I haven’t been able to express myself, I’ve been dying to tell you about some of the weird things that have crossed my path lately, like…
Comic Sans! You know how much I like typography, right, and can’t stand Comic Sans? Well, for some reason, I’ve been getting almost one e-mail per day written ENTIRELY in Comic Sans. Like, paragraph after paragraph of bold 18-pt Comic Sans, usually in violet, orange or pink. I kid you not! The universe is having a free-for-all font field day at little old moi’s expense. It makes me want to laugh and barf at the very same time.
And then there’s this: apparently, I haven’t been paying enough attention to men’s fashion because somewhere along the way, the sh*t hit the fan. Not only are boys wearing Uggs now, but they’re wearing them with bedazzled booty shorts!
Technically, I believe they’re called “Brazillian cut” swim trunks with Swarovski crystals on the bum. Technically, that is (ha!). That’s according to Rockstar, the indie swimwear company that sells ’em for $89 a pop.
I could see the Jersey Shore guys making a go at these, but if El Hub had shown up to our first surfing date wearing spandex daisy dukes with bling on his bottom, my life would have taken a dramatically different turn.
Which blings us to makeup. Have you tried Thierry Mugler’s? They’re mostly known for their perfumes (remember Angel?), but they also have a full line of makeup. I haven’t tried any of their products yet, but I like the upscale mirrored packaging; I hope the products inside are just as great (review coming soon).
If you’ve worn the brand before and feel like sharing, please do. I’d love to hear.
Have a great night, and I’ll talk to you soon. Before I bounce, have you heard this Natasha Bedingfield song? It always puts me in a better mood.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
