- Matt left home at 3:30 am to go to work for a crazy early shift;
- I got up early to take Neil Young to the SPCA for his 8 am neutering appointment;
- I went to babysit Milo & Jude (and gave Milo a V-Day makeover)
He went to karate sporting this look.
After I was done babysitting, I jetted home to meet Matt, who arranged an incredibly sweet, low-key Valentine's Day for us. He grabbed a backpack and drove us to the place where we met (& later shared our first kiss! Well, second kiss, but that's a long story), where we sat on a bench outside. From his backpack he produced: wine, cheese, crackers, a gift card for me to buy clothes (!!), a beautiful Reinaldo Arenas poem that made me tear up, and a stuffed caveman that says "ME LOVE YOU! ME WANT YOU! ME TAKE YOU NOW!" heehee.
Wasn't that so thoughtful & understated? I am so not the dozen roses, balloons, 5-star restaurant on V-Day kinda girl. He knows me well. :)
On another note, one of my favorite things is when bloggers share the products they've been loving. I looooove beauty recommendations especially, so I thought I'd share what's got me smitten these days:
OMG. This foundation is so amazing. While it isn't the consistency I thought it would be (it is designed and labeled to look like my favorite foundation ever that I can't afford)--it comes out like a mousse--the coverage is even better than I imagined. It's SO GOOD & totally worth your dime(s). Go get you some!
I've blogged about these before but it's worth reiterating: These Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadows are out of this world. They stay on forever! I have four colors now and frankly, I want the rest of them. I'm way into eye shadow these days. I've been using all kinds of colors: the Naked 2 palette my sister gave me, an old Dior holiday palette I'd forgotten about, and three e.l.f. mineral shadows that are so impressive: deeply pigmented & with pretty incredible lasting power.
And while I can't say that I personally love this product (cause I haven't tried it yet), I'm very much coveting this Sigma angled flat kabuki brush:
Do any of you have that one? I also have my eyes on the Sigma Performance Eyes kit, thanks to my favorite YouTube beauty guru. Seriously, I cannot stop watching her videos: check them out here if you're into makeup tutorials.
Happy weekend! And if there are any beauty products you're loving these days, tell me in the comments!
