Everyone tells me I look like Ali Wong, but I never understood it until this morning.
I was chillin’ on my phone, scrolling through my Insta feed, when I saw that picture above with the girl in the orange dress (full disclosure: I didn’t have my glasses on) and was like, “I don’t remember taking this pic…and where’d I get this orange dress? And why is my boob almost falling out?? And who is this lady in the pink??”
I clicked on the pic and realized that (holy sh*t) it totally isn’t me! It’s Ali Wong… HA HA HA! Cracked me up.
This morning I also realized that I’m no longer meant for flat makeup bags with a simple zipper at the top. They just don’t work for me anymore. I don’t like having to dig around in them and taking FOR-EV-ER to find anything. I much prefer a specific type of makeup bag now, ones that are shaped like cubes or squares and have a zipper at the top that goes around.
I have two such bags in my life right now, and they see the most use. The first is a clear one from Wander Beauty (I don’t think it’s sold on the website anymore, unfortunately), and the other one is an LE MAC bag I got a while ago.
I “need” (“air quotes”) to get another one or two, though, because I’m done with all other types of makeup bags.
I saw this $15 one on Melissa Street’s feed (she’s a professional makeup artist in LA) from MYKITCO., a UK brand… I think I need one!
Something else that’s been rocking my world lately? Answer: the wonder that is plain nonfat Greek yogurt. I’ve been all about this stuff lately because it’s just so convenient and versatile. I can have it as regular ol’ yogurt in the morning for breakfast (add fruit, nuts and a drizzle of yogurt), or as a substitute for mayo or sour cream. (Try it on top of tacos sometime. It’s SO good!)
I used it to make an egg salad yesterday for lunch using equal parts low-fat mayo and Greek yogurt.
SO GOOD. I stuck it in a halved bell pepper, then sprinkled spinach and bacon on top.
Oh, and while I was making lunch, I listened to Lizzo’s new performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk.
JUST BEYOND. She’s so good on the fly, and she cracks me up, too! I especially love the flute solos (THERE WERE MULTIPLE MOMENTS) in Juice. Sigh! I wish I could find my flute (I think it’s MIA at my parents’ house) because I really want to learn how to play the chorus in Juice on it.
Never mind that I haven’t played flute in, oh…25 years. I think it would still be fun to learn.
