What a busy, makeup-filled day, girls! I had quite the adventure this morning in San Francisco. Oh, it’s a doozy. It all started with an early morning meeting at a cosmetics company in the city. The full story won’t be ready until tomorrow, but for now let’s just say it involves dramatic makeup and TLC.
When I got home from the city this afternoon I was spent and tried to take a cat nap, but my hair was stinky as a result of said adventure in the city, so I decided to take a long shower instead. I reached for my new super shampoo and conditioner combo — Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Lavender Mint Moistruzing Shampoo ($10.95) and Conditioner ($11.95).
I’m a die hard Bumble & Bumble girl, but lately I’ve been trying a few other hair brands on for size. I’m on a lavender kick because I’ve been a little stressed lately, and lavender has helped me to relax. Tea Tree Lavender Mint’s clean, lavender scent doesn’t smell powdery or perfumey at all, which I love, and the combo leaves my hair feeling soft to the touch.
After my shower I took another shot at a cat nap. Within minutes I drifted off to sleep, breathing in Tea Tree Lavender Mint’s soothing scent. I woke up from my nap feeling totally refreshed. Not only does Tea Tree Lavender Mint smell yummy, it moisturizes and makes my hair shiny, too. Loving it!
Tonight, after answering e-mails and running a few errands, I did what I do best: surfing the internets for a new makeup obsession. I’m hunting for the right shade of blue mascara. I searched high and low on Sephora.com today but couldn’t make a decision. I narrowed it down to these five:
- Diorshow in Azure Blue, $24
- Shu Uemura Precise Volume Waterproof Mascara in 03 Blue, $23
- Vincent Longo Vibrant Eye Waterproof Mascara, $24
- Too Faced Lash Injection in Bright Blue, $19.50
- Bourjois Maxi Frange Maximum Length and Volume Mascara Waterproof in Blue Bora Bora, $19
I hoped a trip to the gym tonight would help me sort out which blue to buy, but even after 45 minutes on the elliptical machine and some half-assed sit-ups (am I the only person who hates doing core work?), I was no closer to a decision. Have you used any of these mascaras before? Do you have a fave?
While at the gym I saw a blurb on TV about the upcoming Sex and the City movie. It comes out on the 30th. I can hardly wait!
I hope your Friday was extra fun and that you’re ready to rock this weekend!
