School started last week, and it seems that my work wardrobe is going to be a lot of black and white combos this year. I also seem to wear those black flats a lot, though I will say I started the day with heels, but often switched over to flats for my evening class. Twelve hours in heels with no break is straight torture to me.
My sister’s birthday was on Monday, so last week I shipped her a new cookbook and a pretty scarf. She likes to experiment with vegetarian dishes, so I thought Martha Stewart’s Meatless book would be a great gift. She loved it, and is already excited to try a few of the recipes out soon. The scarf might have to wait until it gets a bit cooler outside, though. It’s still hitting in the 80’s here every day. Yuck. When is fall going to get here already?Since I can’t spend a lot of money this month, I’ve been budgeting what little fun money I have into my BB/CC cream project (which will go up on Monday), and a few other updates to my makeup collection.
I recently walked out of Target with a new mascara that I keep hearing about around the blogosphere, the Cover Girl Lash Blast Clump Crusher Mascara. It’s the first drugstore mascara I have bought in a while (usually go with Sephora brand), and I have to say for 1/3 of the price of my usual mascara, it’s pretty good.
The other product I came home with was the e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit. I heard about this on a blog a while back (can’t remember for the life of me which one), and for only $3 it was worth a shot. I have to say I like using this far better than the eyeshadow I was using to fill in my brows before! It applies much better and lasts all day – not to mention it matches my eyebrows a bit better. So if you’re looking for a cheap fix, e.l.f. seems like a good place to start. Their products mostly cost $3 each, and seem to feature colors and products that are more adult friendly than other low-end brands like Wet ‘N’ Wild.
I’m off to go fix my bike’s flat tire, and plan out some meals for next week. I also have a pile of grading to do, and maybe if I’m lucky I can get out for a ride later today.
What are your plans for this weekend? Anything fun going on?
