1. Doughnuts and tea
Is it “doughnut” or “donut?” Because I dough-not know. HAHAHA! Sorry…I had to go there. 😊
My brother brought us some sweet treats from this place called Vegan Donut Gelato in Oakland the other day, and my life is forever changed. The Oreo cookie doughnut is, in a word, epic, especially with a cup of Earl Grey with a splash of half-and-half in it.
2.ALL THE LOTIONS
Well, I guess having dry skin from head to toe is good for something? This week I’m trying a new retinol body lotion from Josie Maran and two things from First Aid Beauty — Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration and their Ultra Repair Firming Collagen Cream.
3. Close the window, calm the light
Sing it with me: “And it will be alright…”
I used to listen to the Rita Coolidge version of this song (We’re All Alone) on the radio when I was a kid… I hadn’t heard it in years, so when it randomly popped up on YouTube last week I clicked to listen and started reading the subtitles for the lyrics.
HOLY EFFING CRAP, I’ve been singing it wrong this whole time! I always thought it was “Close the window, come alive,” but nope. It’s “close the window, calm the light.” WHOOPS.
Another mind-blowing realization: the lyrics are kinda depressing. I never thought that deeply about them when I was kid, but yeah. I only heard the music and Rita’s soothing voice.
4. Doing liner with an angled brush and a powder eyeshadow
It’s been my jam lately. Easy to clean and super quick to do, and I like making the line super thin. Sometimes I’ll tightline with an additional liner, but sometimes I won’t.
The 2020 version of the movie directed by Autumn de Wilde, specifically. I watched it again last weekend, and I’m gonna watch it again the next chance I get. I love the pacing, the costumes, the acting, and you’re probably going to laugh, but I also really, REALLY love the sets and (weirdly) the paint colors they used for the different indoor rooms.
There are so many vibrant pastel greens and blues. Seriously, you should watch it just to admire the paint on the walls. Not kidding!
