Checking In: A Quick Hello!

Checking In: A Quick Hello!

Hello, there!

How goes it? I hope your lipgloss is sparkly and your base is behaving (I’m wearing Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua today, so I’m set). We’re back in the Bay, and it feels like I’m relearning my pre-Hawaii routine all over again. Is it just me, or is the transition from a vacation back to real life terribly jarring? The first few days back are rough!

Lots of stuff has been happening at work, so I’ve been dealing with that, but I just wanted to stop by and say a quick cheerio and hello, and to mention a few things…

1. “Persuasion” on Netflix

I watched this movie based on the Jane Austen book on the plane ride home. It stars Dakota Johnson as the main character, Anne Elliot. Side note: Is it just me or is Dakota’s voice always kinda whispery? I have a really hard time imagining her yelling.

Anywho, take mixed signals and marriage proposals, and then add a dash of listening to other people’s advice rather than your own heart, and you get this movie. I quite enjoyed it, although I do feel like the screenplay’s shoutouts to modern slang were a bit much for me.

2. Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream

I got a sample of this intensely hydrating face cream made with Japanese purple rice as a birthday gift perk from the Sephora Beauty Insider program. I have dry skin and it works great! A full-size 1.7-ounce jar is pricey at $69 (!), but if your skin is perennially parched and you’re on the hunt for a super-rich cream, you might want to try the travel-size 0.34-ounce jar, which is $20.

3. Urban Decay Scorch Eyeliner

I’ve been wearing it as an eyeshadow on my lids lately as an eyeshadow! It’s the purr-fect summery bronze shade.

How are things on your end?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
