The Weekly Roundup: Posts You Might Have Missed

Published in: Just For Fun

Makeup and Beauty Blog Weekly Roundup

Supermoon! I’m so stoked. Last night’s supermoon was the first celestial special event I’ve seen in … I can’t remember how long. Whenever I hear about something like a meteor shower or a planet in perfect position to see with the naked eye, I get all excited, plan to stay up late, figure out when/where I’m supposed to be in my neighborhood to get a good look at it, but then I either forget, fall asleep early, or the clouds roll in to block my view!


Not last night though. It was a perfect confluence of astrological and earth-bound factors. The moon was big and bright and hard to miss. So beautiful.

I struggled a bit this week to get back into the swing of things, only because the week started with me having fun in the tropics. I think that means I had a really good time on vacation, because I wasn’t ready for it to end. I’m still doing that thing where you say, “This time last week I was [INSERT VACATION ACTIVITY HERE].” I mean, I like my office, but it’s not the quite the same as swimming in a tropical waterfall.

A few beauty (and otherwise random) posts that caught my eye this week…

Oh, big news this weekend about recent makeup monster sightings, and a warning to be careful if there’s a fountain in front of your favorite mall…

    Hi Karen, thanks so much for the mention! 🙂 I always miss astrological things too.. I think once I actually woke up to see Mars, and I couldn’t locate it so kinda gave up haha.

  2. Karen says:

    Ha! That’s the story of my every effort to see an astrological event. I get so jazzed about them too, but then I’m always looking up at the sky asking El Hub, “Do you see it…?” 🙂

    Thank you for all the different posts this week, Karen, between the really interesting guest posts and your Kauai posts, it was a lot of fun.

    You’re the only beauty blogger I know who posts great articles even when you’re on vacation.
