Published in: Just For Fun

early-morning-light

  1. Mood:
  2. Happy and relaxed. I have a good feeling about the week ahead.

  3. What’s your favorite number?
  4. The number 9, because it’s my birthday.

  5. Are you more outgoing or shy?
  6. A mix of both. I’m mostly outgoing, but sometimes when I feel like I don’t have anything in common with the people around me I’ll be more of an observer.

  7. How do you feel about matte nails?
  8. They don’t really do much for my soul. I prefer shiny things, ya know?

  9. Eyes/lips/cheeks:
  10. Just moisturizer so far. Later on today I think I’ll bust out some Chanel, because I’m in the mood to channel Coco.

  11. Last book you read and loved?
  12. The Time Traveler’s Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger. I can’t wait to read her new book, Her Fearful Symmetry.

  13. Brussel spouts — yay or nay?
  14. A big fat yay! Slice them, fry ‘em in a little butter, add some salt and pepper and YUM!

  15. What was the last awesome thing you bought for less than $10?
  16. Soap & Glory’s Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths ($7). The wipes feel so soft, and the minty scent instantly wakes me up.

  17. Outfit:
  18. Plaid shorts, grey tank top, terry cloth robe. It’s still early, and I quite literally just rolled out of bed.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Stay relaxed, give Tabs extra loving and playtime (he’s been very interested in the front door as of late), make a new running music playlist, avoid picking my pimples (an old bad habit), stick to my deadlines.

Good morning, gals!



Dawn is breaking here in Nor Cal. I woke up earlier than usual because I was having a dream about aggressive wild turkeys chasing me around a pumpkin patch. It was funny and scary at the same time. :)

    3. are you more outgoing or shy? naturally, i’m shy, but i hate awkwardness in social situations sooo much that i force myself to be outgoing.

    4. how do you feel about matte nails? most of them aren’t for me – they remind me too much of dry chalkboards. that said, some of the latest matte polishes look amazing with topcoat (zoya savita and zoya harlow, i’m looking at you!), and i’m also in the market for a very flat, shimmer-free matte black. ko’s version is too pricey for me, so i think i’m gonna go with $opi what’s a tire jack? instead.

    5. eyes/lips/cheeks: umm… maybelline the colossal mascara / nothing / nothing. oops! i love reading about makeup (hence why i’m here!) but don’t wear much myself.

    8. what was the last awesome thing you bought for less than $10? nails inc. the serpentine polish. a super deep, slightly muted blue creme… mmmmm.

    9. outfit: black long cardigan with studded shoulders, sheer off-white v-neck tunic, olive green thin scarf, black lamé boa-embossed leggings, black motorcycle boots.

    10. weekly goals: clear my desk of all clutter, get my np stash under control and organized (feels like i have to do this every week), get my lazy butt to the dmv to finally have my license transferred (after 5+ years of living here, oops).
