Shh… Loud noises hurt. I don’t think I’m fully awake yet.
Actually, I have. It was back when I was a kid, and luckily I fell onto carpet from just a few feet off the ground, so I didn’t break anything, but I was rather traumatized.
I did when I was younger, but as a band geek I spent a lot of time doing musical performances in front of groups of people and did drama and public speaking when I was a teenager… I think I just got kinda used to it after a while.
Toasted Italian Pugliese topped with Nutella (BIG surprise) and a cup of hot green tea.
Inspiration! — although I can’t imagine I’ll find it in a casino. The family and I are driving over to Reno in Nevada for two days. It’s about a four-hour drive east of here (El Hub’s family from Hawaii loves to gamble; me, not so much). If you can think of anything inspiring to do in the Reno area, please let me know!
In a word: craptacular. I’ve been sleeping on an air mattress since my in-laws arrived last Thursday, and Tabs has taken to jumping on and off it throughout the night, which, as you can probably imagine, is a tad unnerving!
A big fat YAY!
Hmm… That’s a tough one because it depends. I can’t say I’d cheer if El Hub started rocking my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 (I couldn’t handle a boy who was more high maintenance than me, LOL!), but I’d love to see him start wearing sunscreen. I like that he’s a “dude’s dude,” but he’s light-skinned and really ought to wear SPF.
My gray stretchy yoga pants (another BIG surprise), a black t-shirt and a hot pink hoodie.
To enjoy the next two days in Reno (I’ll still be blogging, of course), prepare at least one vegan meal for dinner later this week, to hit the treadmill at least once or twice and to keep writing myself daily Post-It affirmations (my favorite one from last week was “Freaking out doesn’t help!”).
Hello from the land of the sleep deprived!
Not even dark circles and poor coordination can stop me today, although I did walk into a wall this morning — one of the side effects of sleep deprivation.
But other than feeling a little tired, things are going pretty well on my end. How are you doing today? Do you have a minute for the Monday Poll?
If you’re new to MBB, the Monday Poll is just a quick way to touch base and share what’s on your mind. I think it’s also a great way to warm up ye olde mental motor and get the week off to a good start.
To play, just copy the following list, and paste it with your answers in the comments.

Say it with me, y’all: LET’S DO THIS!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Reno may not be Disneyland, but I do plan to blog about more of the products and looks from the upcoming MAC Venomous Villains Collection over the coming weeks. Let me know if you have any special requests!
