Morning, babes. No Saturday Surfing today, but if you needed more evidence that Marshalls adores cat ladies, I present, for the O.M.R. (the Official Makeup Record), the following pieces of evidence…
Exhibit A: Marshalls is down with the cat ladies
That adorable cat dish/tray at the top, complete with a kitty wearing eyeglasses (because all the cool cats wear glasses)…
And this catnip jar — because only crazy cat ladies need a dedicated jar for bulk catnip.
And this holiday kitty cat mug with its own knitted cozy!
Also, this set of purr-fect cat mugs…
Trays in every room
Yes, I did get that tray at the top, because, hello — cat lady here. Target market. 🙂
Um…actually, I have little trays in every room of the house because I’m always having to take off my watch and my rings for different reasons.
Like, for instance, when Connor gets her hands down a poopy diaper and decides to do some finger painting with said poop all over her crib bedding, stuffed animals and her blanket (true story).
I tend to take off my jewelry before tackling tasks like that, hence the trays.
And no more sticking jewelry into jeans pockets anymore for this girl, because the jeans inevitably get thrown into the hamper, and then gets thrown into the wash, and before you know it you’re in a sweaty panic looking for your engagement ring all over the house for two hours before eventually finding the ring underneath the dryer (also true story).
Cute tray, right? I think I’m gonna put it in Connor’s room. It was only $2.99.
Oh, and Marshalls doesn’t just cater to cat ladies. They love dog people, too.
Exhibit D: Marshalls digs dogs
Took a breather yesterday
I missed you! But I needed a break yesterday. The baby… Anyway, it’s a long story, but it involves tantrums and raspberries and poop and spoon skills and untying knots in hair, and I needed a few hours to recover.
Now my rested brain can appreciate things like this: new stuff from Urban Decay. 🙂
All Nighter Waterproof Full-Coverage Concealer
UD has a new line of matte waterproof full-coverage concealers. There are 14 colors, $29 each, and they’re supposed to be so full-coverage that they can even hide tattoos.
[INSERT COLLECTIVE OOOOH!]
They also have a new palette called Distortion ($48) that has 15 powder shadows that you can mix and match to create different finishes. It’s up on sephora.com now for pre-order.
I’m looking forward to some makeup time in my room/office this weekend, because I haven’t worn a lick of makeup in three days.
Hard to believe that I used to put on concealer just to go get the mail, LOL!
Come say hi in the comments. I miss you. I’ll be around today and tomorrow. I’m just getting the house ready for T-day next week.
We’re hosting this year, so things have to get done.
In Connor Claire news…man, your niece has been going through some things lately. She hit that stage in her toddler-hood where she’s super clingy, super impatient and super insistent and vocal about having my full attention all the time, all day long.
Between the baby and the cat…I’m just saying. It isn’t easy to put on makeup with a baby and a world-renowned kitty supermodel all up in your grill.
What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
Are you heading out of town? Are you hosting this year? Inquiring minds want to know. Got any kick-@ss dessert or side dish recipes to share? You know I’m all about the sides.
Also, what have you been reading and watching lately? I’m still reading Cocoa Beach (I’m about 60% done!), and I’m marathoning Alias Grace on Netflix.
It’s based on a Margaret Atwood book (she also wrote The Handmaid’s Tale). Good so far, but kinda… Well, there’s a lot going on. It’s about the 1843 murders of Thomas Kinnear and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery in Upper Canada, and there are twisted relationships, secret alliances, and you don’t know if you can trust the narrator.
So it’s interesting, and Sarah Gadon kicks butt.
Have a great weekend.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
