  1. Mood:
  2. A jumble of good things today: focused, cheerful and playful!

  3. What are three of your favorite eyeshadow crease colors?
  4. Oh, there are so many to choose from! MAC Soft Brown will always be my baby. Lately, I’ve also been lovin’ on MAC Patina and Urban Decay Smog from the Ammo Palette.

  5. Do you think men and women can be platonic friends without any weirdness?
  6. Totally. I have a few great guy friends who are like the older brothers I always wished for but never had — NBLACK, Mark S. and Marc K.

  7. What’s the next book you’d like to read?
  8. I just finished the third Sookie Stackhouse book and can’t wait to read the fourth.

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Nothing yet, but I’m thinking it might be a Bobbi Brown Ivy League kinda day.

  11. Who makes *the best* jeans?
  12. I have to admit I’m asking this question because I need to buy a new pair, LOL! I used to love my Joe’s, but now they fit funky…

  13. What are you looking forward to most this week?
  14. Watching Julie & Julia on Friday. LOVE Meryl Streep!

  15. If you had the chance to go back and re-live your high school years but with all the knowledge you have now, would you?
  16. High school was a time in my life when I felt steady and safe, so it’s definitely tempting. I would miss the freedoms that come with being an adult, though, so probably not.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Pink and black plaid Dickies pants and a black t-shirt.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Schedule a lunch with friends, start researching flooring materials (fake wood versus carpet?), set aside time to relax and try a new recipe from the August issue of Real Simple.

Right now I’m sitting at my desk, drinking tea and going over my to-do list for the day. Tabs is on my lap and purring like crazy!

    Hmm, I can’t pick just one.

    each other in *that* way.

    6. Who makes *the best* jeans?
    I honestly think jeans are one of those items where there is no one “best” – it depends very much on your body type. I’m thin and tall and all my height is in my legs, so 7 for all Mankind and Rock and Republic are my faves because they have long inseams.

    7. What are you most looking forward to this week?
    Receiving some makeup in the mail (I have Lancome and Chantecaille fall stuff heading my way).

    7. Would you re-live your high school years?
    Hellz no. . . they weren’t awful, but I was tall, gangly, a shy nerd, and those were awkward times for me. I’m much more stylish, settled, and happy now – I feel like I’ve “grown into myself” if that makes sense.

    8. Outfit:
    A white skirt suit with a royal-blue silk sleeveless shell.

    9. Weekly goals:
    To start planning my fall wardrobe; to make some headway on a big work project; to try some new recipes out

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Nada, at home today!

    6. Who makes *the best* jeans? I am super partial to Rock & Republic. I just bought two more pairs from Nordies sale :)

    7. What are you most looking forward to this week? Hopefully the weather gets warmer, it’s August after all not November!

Living in Hawaii, I don’t wear long jeans very much, normally I’ll wear jeans that are capri length, I’m not very label conscious or even very knowledgeable about brands… I normally just try to find something that fits well, looks cute, and doesn’t break the bank.

      Hi Ines,

      I’d much rather get wood for the entire place — it can be so expensive, though! Hopefully I can find something that’s affordable and looks nice.

  24. Laura F. says:

      Hi Laura F.,

      Sorry to hear about your boyfriend moving away. It’ll be a big change, but hopefully with all the ways to stay in touch you guys will be able to get through it.

      BTW, A Great and Terrible Beauty is a good read. I really enjoyed it.

  25. Kate & Zena says:

    Le list

    1. Mood:
    Tired and crabby. I’m stuck with the very last of my migraine. At least I’m not throwing up anymore. I’m exhausted.

    2. Three of your favorite eyeshadow crease colors:
    The dark brown color in the “Shady” HiP duo and that’s about it. I don’t do a crease color a lot of the time. Just one even stroke of color because I like keeping things simple.

    3. Can men and women be platonic friends?
    Yes.

    4. The next book you’d like to read:
    I need to pick up my holds. But, the next series in the House of Night comes out in September if I remember correctly! I need to pre-order it. I can’t fathom reading at the moment due to my head!

    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
    Nothing. I’ve been throwing up or sleeping so I’ve had no time to get dressed. I feel too miserable.

    6. Who makes *the best* jeans?
    I have the perfect pair of DKNY jeans I got at TK Maxx. I’ve worn them so much I have a big hole in the knees of my pants. I need to find a new DKNY jean in a size 0. I always feel good in those jeans.

    7. What are you most looking forward to this week?
    Getting rid of this headache. On August 6th, the Lovely Bones trailer comes out on iTunes! Must. See. Trailer.

    8. Would you re-live your high school years?
    No.

    9. Outfit:
    The loosest and silkiest pajamas I could find. Again, I’m miserable. Misery likes anything that feels like silk.

    10. Weekly goals:
    Get rid of headache. Buy the $423.53 cents of books that I need for my college courses. Get rid of headache. Watch Lovely Bones trailer. Get rid of headache. Watch Wild Russia (the ones I have on my DVR and the new ones on Thursday)

    Okay, I think I’m going to either upstairs nap with Zena or TRY getting dressed. I’m completely exhausted. I don’t know if I can make it upstairs!

  26. Rachel says:

    Le list

    1. Mood: Tired, in pain, but inspired.
    2. Three of your favorite eyeshadow crease colors: I’m going to be vague here and just say colors, not brands and specific shades. Tan (I’m really pale), taupe and bronze.
    3. Can men and women be platonic friends? Yes, I believe so. Happens everyday of the week.
    4. The next book you’d like to read: I want to get through my Sookie Stackhouse novels, but I’m too busy to fit everything in.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm on my lippies.
    6. Who makes *the best* jeans? I like brands that don’t need tailoring, ones that come in “short” sizes. I am 5’2 1/2″ and I’m on the “rail” side on the bottom. A lot of jeans are way too baggy on me. The last two brands I’ve tried are Express and Faded Glory. Faded Glory’s lowest size (4) is too big on me on the waist. The length fits, though. Express’ waist on my jeans fits, but it is sometimes pinchy when I sit down, ugh. I think they just aren’t cut for my body type. I think if Faded Glory made a 2 or 0.. I would be set.
    7. What are you most looking forward to this week? Finding out where I placed for the month of July (on a writing website I participate on). Seeing what mail I get.
    8. Would you re-live your high school years? NO! I doubt they would work out differently, unless I pretended to be someone I’m not.
    9. Outfit: A brown Banana Republic shirt that I wore earlier when I went to the PO and pink Nick and Nora PJs with cat Nick and Nora slippers.
    10. Weekly goals: Write 4 reviews a day. Try to keep up with other things too. Keep balance.

    4. The next book you’d like to read: I have no time to read, unfortunately.
    5. Eyes/lips/cheeks: Au Natural right now. But I plan on doing my lips and cheeks with Posietint. <3

  28. Karen4 says:

    Hi again, Karen!

    I meant to suggest to you–bamboo flooring or cork flooring. I have a beautiful cork floor in my office. It looks like swirly patterned hardwood. Bamboo also looks just like hardwood. Both are “green” products and the cost is not much different than hardwood/Pergo. I would NOT carpet, especially with a cat in the house.

  32. Lauren says:

    Oh, about the flooring, Karen… my dorm last year had this really neat laminate that looked like gorgeous wood flooring. It was glued to the concrete floor. I’m not sure how expensive it was, but because they put it into every room in my dorm, I’m guessing it can’t have been that expensive, and it was -GORGEOUS-. I’m not sure what it was called though.

  33. Catherine says:

    1. Mood: Mostly good but a little frazzled. Mondays always are a bit like that haha.

    2. Three of your favorite eyeshadow crease colors: Hmmm… I tend to do monochromatic looks, so for each color, there’s a favorite crease color haha.

    Over-fed. And not ready to go to sleep yet—
