Odds and ends
I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving last week! It's been a couple weeks, but the prodigal blogger has returned. I had a wonderful thanksgiving with family. I stuffed myself as if I was preparing for hibernation. I'm still thinking about a certain mini pecan pie... I also attended the beautiful wedding of a good friend who I hadn't seen in a long time.
When I traveled out of town I thought it would be easy to rely on my family's camera and laptop. I brought only an iPad to keep up with blogger. However, I found that straying outside my usual setup and location threw me off. I'm definitely a creature of habit. For the same reason, I normally travel with a caravan's worth of goods. The phone pictures in this entry were taken while I was packing to leave. Normally I will pile all my makeup and jewelry together before organizing them neatly into pouches and bags. Some of the items featured include NARS Sheer Glow in Deauville, a red necklace made by my mother, NARS Mandchourie eyeshadow duo, CHANEL Graphite nail polish, LUSH It's Raining Men shower gel, and a MAKE UP FOR EVER Kabuki brush, amongst many other things. The little sample containers in the last picture are samples of foundation I made for my mom.
It's good to be back. I'm working on getting back into my usual routine, which should include blogging! I have a tube of MAC Creme D'Nude lipstick from fellow blogger Kelly of Kelly's Makeup Bag that waiting to be photographed. In the meantime, some current obsessions include:
The Revlon lip butters at don't call me Jessie
MAC Iris Apfel promo photos on Glitter.Gloss.Garbage
Dior Silver Lake nail polish at Makeup Magpie
Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque on Getting Cheeky
The beautybloggers.org auction - there are a number of bid-worthy items catching my eye!
