Listastic Tuesday

• Me and the hubs had some new photos done of us back in June.  It had been years (YEARS!) since we’ve had professional photos done (like since our wedding), so getting them in the mail made me uber-excited.  Big thanks to Courtney J Photography!

• We saw the new Batman on Friday.  Mind you, I’m not a comic book follower, but I thought it had some hits and misses.

• Hits: Great hand-to-hand fight scenes, some very tense moments that had me sit up in my seat, and I was a fan of the ending.  I also liked the Catwoman story in this interpretation much better than Michelle Pfieffer’s.  (Didn’t see Hallie Berry’s Catwoman movie – sorry Hallie.)

• Misses: Way too long, some story lines were repeated too many times, and it painted the policemen as idiots.  I thought all of three were way too long.  But this one… it seemed to drag on for a bit.

• That all being said, the first two movies in this series were better.  Or at least I thought so.  But that’s enough Batman talk.

• I’ve been bitten hard by the makeup bug again.  My little Benefit purchase back in April apparently set something in motion.  And while I haven’t gone bananas, I have made some key purchases since then.  I’ve added Benefit’s Ooh-la-lift and Sephora’s smoothing primer to my everyday musts.

• But the Smashbox blue eyes palette was a very fun thing to add to my collection.  I don’t think I’ve ever really paid attention to eyeshadow or what goes together or how to even really put it on.  This palette has changed my mind.  In the words of my Little Skipper, I now have “good eyeshadow.”

• Honestly, it’s amazing how a little tweak to your makeup routine can make you feel good.
