Listastic Tuesday

Gift for Me

• I treated myself to a little makeup pick-me-up.  I usually don’t splurge on makeup but after reading and hearing about Benefit a handful of times in less than a week, I decided to go for it.  My “pretty committee” kit  and boi-ing concealer came in the mail and I’m smitten with it all.  The eyebright pencil is my fave and I love wearing new blush.

• As you can see, it doesn’t take much to make me feel like a new gal.  And I’ll admit since my new cosmetic play-things have come in the mail, I’ve been more thoughtful about my wardrobe.  No boring cardigans last week.  I even wore my skinny jeans again.  How ’bout them apples?

• But this week is a new week so  I wore a cardigan yesterday.  They’re just so versatile.

• The Final Four.  I was SO EXCITED that Louisville was playing Kentucky and I’m completely sincere when I say that.  A heated rivalry was faced in the Final Four.  My beautiful home state had TWO universities come down to the wire.  I would have loved to been in NOLA.

• I am sad that my Cardinals didn’t win but honestly, it was a good time with friends.  And I commend the players on being so civil with one another.  They added no fuel to the fire.  The fire that UK fans put to several couches and cars across Lexington.  Classy.

• Honestly, I’m pleased with the outcome.  It was Kentucky’s to lose this year.  And if ever a UK team deserved the national title, it’s this one.

• In other news, Starburst Jelly Beans are my BFFs.  And the devil.  At the same time.

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - I saw the picture and thought that you had gone on a pilgrimage to Sephora. Sadly, Benefit discontinued my most favorite lipstick shade in the world. How dare they?!!

katie ohhhhhhhhhh! - Buying new makeup is tantamount to a brand new wardrobe/new hairdo. It’s amazing and makes you feel fantastic. So good for you!
