Hmm… I wonder what Tabs is doing right now.
I’m typing this on my laptop at the little desk in my hotel room in Tahoe (Stateline, on the Nevada side of the lake) while El Hub quietly snores behind me like a husky, little angel. Between you and me…I’m hoping that my clacking on the keyboard wakes him up so that I can innocently ask him to go get me some coffee from the Starbucks in the lobby.
Tabs is back at the Novato offices of Makeup and Beauty Blog, probably working from his cat tower in the living room.
I bet heâ€™s probably thinking (and laughing maniacally!) about how he woke me up early yesterday…
At exactly 4 a.m., he stealthily approached the bed while El Hub and I were still sawing logs, somehow made it up on to the comforter without making a sound (amazing considering that he weighs almost 20 pounds), and then threw himself on my bladder!
Whether it was for sport or gravy, the world will never know…
Needless to say, it woke me up, and not on the right side of the bed, so out came the shimmery face lotion.
Perfect for partying till the break of dawn (ZOMG! I can’t believe there were mornings I’d walk through the door at 6 a.m.!) or for pet owners/assistants with acrobatic, time-insensitive cats, these little bottles are potions of face-perking power!
Like yesterday, I rubbed a dollop of the shimmery lotion all over my face, after my sunscreen but before my foundation (and/or tinted moisturizer, if I were to wear one), using my fingers, but sometimes I’ll use a foundation brush.
The subtle shimmer peeks through my face makeup to brighten and freshen my mug.
Both products have very fine flecks of shimmer — great, because similar shimmers with larger flecks look a little too disco for me in person and in pictures — and neither one gives me breakouts.
Take that, Tabs! Mommy 1, tabby 0.
