In a word, happy. The birds are singing outside my office window right now, and that always puts a smile on my face.
I have! I used it religiously when I was 14 and stuck with it for about a year.
Now that I think about it, I can’t remember why I stopped, but it was probably boredom, or I just got distracted by something else and moved on… That happened a lot when I was that age.
I still know people who swear by it, though, and I might give it another try.
I have fallen in love with a few other Clinique skin care products over the years, like their Rinse-Off Foaming Cleaners (I loved this stuff back in college when my skin was epically oily!), Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm and Mild Clarifying Lotion.
When the weather’s nice, and my allergies aren’t going ballistic, I like to take a walk outside. But if I can’t get outside, then I try to find a quiet place where I can sit by myself, close my eyes and concentrate on my breathing for a few minutes.
That always takes the edge off.
No, not unless cannon-balling counts.
I have tried it a couple times but never quite got the hang of it. I guess it’s just one of things… I’m a total water baby, but there’s something about diving head first into a body of water that makes me a wee bit nervous.
Most of the time, still. Sparkling when my tummy’s gurgling.
I’ll be wearing NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer on my cheeks and around my mouth to even out my skin tone, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer to hide my dark under-eye circles, Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara to open up my eyes, MAC Concrete Eyeshadow to fill in my brows, Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush Wand in Manet to give my cheeks some color, and bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Spark Plug to make my lips really shine.
I sure am. I’m wearing Clarins HydraQuench SPF 15 on my face and neck.
An ancient oversized navy blue tee with the words “UC Davis” on it that I’ve had forever. It’s not particularly cute or anything. I just think it’s really comfy.
I’ve been very curious about Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum ($79) ever since some gals raved about it in the comments.
I think I might have pick it up when the Sephora VIB sale kicks in on the 29th…
To make it to at least a couple of yoga classes, to remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day (I slacked last week), to finish my to-do list by 6 each day (dare to dream!), and to make an appointment to get my hair did.
Okay, Mad Men fans, can we dish about last night’s season premiere?
That was one groovy party, man! And did you catch Megan’s cool cat eye makeup?
I’ll meet you for more Don Draper and friends in the comments, but first — do you have a minute for today’s Monday Poll?
