With colored pencils, and using said pencils to draw false lashes, questionable eyeshadow and winged liner on cartoon horses. 😊
I have a pimple on my chin.
It’s one of those *painful* ones with roots like an old oak tree, but instead of doing what I usually do with a pimple like this one — bombarding it with benzoyl peroxide — this time I showered it in Kate Somerville’s +Retinol Vita C Power Serum Firming + Brightening Treatment instead.
Soooo I may have overdone it a little, though, because the peeling around the area was intense for a minute, but dang, the retinol worked some serious magic. It pushed that pimple through the various annoying pimple phases quicker than benzoyl peroxide ever could, and a healing process that usually takes a month took about a week and a half.
OK, #teamretinol, I totally get it now.
3. “When Will My Life Begin”
Connor is going through a Disney princess phase at the moment, and this song from Tangled sung by the adorable Mandy Moore (LOVE HER) sticks in my head for a loooong time every time I hear it.

He does my favorite flute player’s makeup for her videos and performances, and I’m so inspired by how he plays with color!

5. Flounder Milanese with arugula and tomatoes
I made a version of this recipe from Gina over at Skinnytaste last week by substituting some items with things I had in my fridge (tilapia for the flounder, spinach for the arugula, and a gluten-free version of breadcrumbs), and everyone gobbled it down with a quickness. Not a crumb was left behind!
Seriously, add this to your weeknight rotation ASAP.
That’s what I’ve been loving lately. How about you?
