Steady. It’s not exactly a mood, but it’s just what I needed. I’ve been emotionally all over the place for the past few days (partly hormonal, partly introspective ever since the baby shower last weekend), but I woke up this morning feeling like I had a better foothold on reality, as dramatic as that probably sounds.
I love all things Coco, but I don’t feel mature enough for No. 5 yet. Maybe later down the road…
My bod, I exfoliate a little less often, maybe once or twice a week, using whichever body scrub I happen to have in my shower. Lately that’s been Pacifica Kona Coffee & Sugar Detox Whole Body Scrub.
It really depends on my schedule. When I’m pressed for time, I’m willing to skip exfoliating my body to give myself more time for other things.
No, not at all, but I do enjoy how I feel when I’m done and the place looks better, and I know that it’s actually clean.
I get all Fast & Furious when I’m driving on the freeway and get stuck in a lane between two big rigs. Makes me super nervous, for some reason.
A coral and gold bracelet I’ve had since I was a kid. I wore it all the time in college, but I put it away some years after almost losing it once at work (I have a chronic problem with losing jewelry, which is why I prefer costume stuff). Now I have it stowed away in a safe place and rarely take it out. I’d be heartbroken if it ever disappeared, so I’d rather just know it exists somewhere safe, than actually wear and possibly lose it. Weird, I know.
Nope. I’m terrible at card games, actually. I can never remember the rules; I can’t tell you how many times El Hub has tried to teach me poker.
“Blackjack! Oh — that’s a different game?”
That’s a tough one! I don’t have any tattoos, but that’s one I just might get to memorialize Tabs when the time comes for him to go meet his friends at the rainbow bridge (I can barely bring myself to think about it!).
I’ve had many pets and have shared deep connections with them before, but none have been like the bond I have with Tabs. He’s a very, very special kitty — a once in a lifetime cat companion.
I’m wearing the same makeup I wore to my BFF’s shower on Saturday, which has been my go-to look as of late. Eyes: NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base; MAC Soft Ochre Paint Pot; MAC Eyeshadows in Ricepaper, Soft Brown and Arena; MAC Eye Kohl in Feline; Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara topped with Buxom Amplified; and Benefit Instant Brow. Lips: MAC Lipstick in Impassioned. Cheeks: NARS Orgasm, Albatross and Laguna Blush/Bronzer Trio.
To make healthy food choices every day this week (I ate too much frozen crap, aka “bullsh*t food,” last week), to exercise at least 30 minutes each day, to find a good fitness app for my iPhone (got any recs?), and to read for at least two hours every day (a lot, I know, but it’s like mental exercise).
Geez, August, already? I know that technically we still have plenty of summer left, but I can’t even bear to think about it getting cold again. I’m not ready!
But one thing I am ready for is to hear from you. How ’bout we get this party started with the Monday Poll?
