They say you learn something new every day (learning is fundamental, yo!). Among my Monday epiphanies…
- Butter pecan ice cream eaten straight from the carton dulls the symptoms of monster PMS.
- Tabs knows how to smile with his eyes.
- Boots killed it with their Botanics Eye Colour Duo in Velvet Pansy ($7) and Lip Glace in Marshmallow ($10).
Before my PMS-fueled junk food fest/impromptu photo session with Tabs earlier today, I tried on both of the aforementioned tidbits from Boots.
One of six Eye Colour duos in the Boots Botanics makeup line, Velvet Pansy’s shimmery purple and pink shades caress my skin with color, but they don’t feel quite as fine as the Boots Stay Perfect Shadow single I recently tried in Khaki. Not a problem, though, as both of the shadows in the duo blend together like they were cut from the same cloth.
Lip Glace in Marshmallow, a sheer and shimmery pink gloss, gets gold stars from me for its thin, non-sticky texture, even though it only lasts about two hours (which isn’t entirely unusual for a thin gloss), but its strong fruit punch flavor and scent might be a turnoff for some.

Wearing Velvet Pansy on my eyes and Marshmallow on my Lips…
Tabs and I spent a long time just sitting and hanging out on the deck this afternoon (apparently he deemed me worthy of his valuable time). While I snapped pics and calculated the number of miles I’d have to run to burn off the ice cream I ate for lunch, he stared at birds in an adjacent oak tree through slats in the floor.
I wish people were so easily amused…
Actually, many of us are.
So how was the rest of your Monday? Was there a highlight?
