Weekend obsessions: spaghetti tacos, old school Benefit and hello! — is that Jared Leto?!
Don’t laugh, but late last night I ran to Target just so I could get everything I’d need to make spaghetti tacos for lunch today. Thank you, New York Times, for opening my eyes to the wonderful world of pasta-filled crispy corn shells.
They are GENIUS!
El Hub hasn’t quite gotten behind the idea yet, but he’ll come around. His primitive male brain just needs to make the leap from spaghetti to taco. It’s really simple though. Spaghetti + taco = taste bud nirvana.
Throw a little Nutella on that and…just kidding.
After my spaghetacos, I think I might pull out some old permanent line favorites from Benefit that I haven’t tried in a while — Erase Paste ($26), Some Kind-a Gorgeous ($28) and 10 Bronzing & Highlighting Face Powder Duo ($28).
Do you use any of these? They’re products that I’ve heard a lot about from other women but never really fell hard for the first time around. I feel like giving them another try.
How do you feel about Benefit in general? Every time I visit the counter at Macy’s it’s one of the busiest ones in the store (and looks like it’s getting busier every day). Tell me about it, or anything else, in this week’s open thread.
If you’re new to the open thread, here it is in a nutshell:
It’s a chat fest where we wax philosophic about spaghetti tacos, boys, books, movies, makeup, TV and pets, among other topics. You name it, really.
Stop by whenever you can this afternoon or tonight. I’ll be there in a minute. I just have to load up another spaghetaco and refill my tea…
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Marian (‘sup, girl!), thanks for the link to selfOblivion’s YouTube video. It’s the coolest thing I’ve seen all weekend!
Have you seen this yet? This girl does a Jared Leto cosplay, and I swear to gawd it’s amazing. The resemblance is uncanny! She does some very interesting things with shading that really bring the look to life.
