Deep thoughts on unicorns and the new Paul & Joe Make Up Collection 2012 Holiday Kit…
Question: why are unicorns called unicorns when they’re rarely seen around, or eating, corn? Wouldn’t “uni-horns” make more sense? Granted, it doesn’t sound as pretty, but it would be more accurate, don’t you think?
Question: if one were to spend a lot of time hanging out with unicorns, how often would accidental horn injuries occur? The phrase, “you could put an eye out,” seems particularly apt.
Question: what magic did Paul & Joe employ to make one of my favorite mythical beasts, one that I’ve loved since the age of 6 (You shouldâ€™ve seen my unicorn sticker collection! It was epic!! The stuff of little girl dreams!), seem even cuter and cooler in their new limited edition $60 three-piece set?
an accessories ho a purse enthusiast, I can’t decide what I like more about this set, one of three prancing onto shelves for the holidays — the sweet satin purse with its golden detailing and purple inner liner, the makeup that comes with it or the unicorn with purple flowers weaved into its mane.
It’s like a treasure you’d find on a dusty shelf in a vintage store behind a row of empty perfume bottles and silver combs (I love finding things like that).
The clutch also comes with a couple pieces of pretty great cosmetics, like a shimmery, peachy pink blush with tiny flecks of gold and silver glitter (NOTE: the snowflake pattern is just an overspray that disappears after the first use).
Healthy, glowing skin a la Charlize Theron can be found here.
Paul & Joe also included a jar of nearly weightless matte translucent face powder, which I like to use to set my under-eye concealer.
I’m tempted to just display the jar on my bathroom shelf, where I can see the unicorn on the cap every single day…
What a sweet set! It’s small, but the purse is just too cute, and the makeup should work well on most skin tones.
I can see this being a very special gift for a teenager, or otherwise young-at-heart individual who still believes in magic.

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A
Sooo, I went to Trader Joe’s yesterday to pick up a few groceries, and hello! — it was pumpkin madness up in there. The pumpkin-flavored products are out in force.
I had their delicious pumpkin soup for dinner last night and would have gobbled down every last drop had I not dropped the stupid TV remote control into my bowl (a classic Karen move).
The soup, though, was great. Kinda savory and sweet. I bet it would be NOM with a grilled cheese sandwich, and speaking of that…my tummy’s rumbling!
What’s for din-din?
