Oh my darlings this week has been an interesting one. It felt like every time i got a rip on my week something came flying out of nowhere. I think I ended up paying more attention to the weather this week than I have in a really long time.
I think that’s because it felt like the weather was trying to take me down. I understand the park flooding. The State of Tennessee decided to use the floodplains to build walking trails across the state. While it makes for a very good use of land that otherwise can’t be used, (And keeps people from trying to use it) it does mean that when it rains the walking trails flood. That makes sense. It just seemed like the rain was intent on taking down as many trees as possible while rushing through.
But it seems to have been sorted. The roads are clear and even though there is the sound of chainsaws accompanying the day, my entire neighborhood is back to being fully powered. The internet is also working. Yesterday everything was a bit dicey.
Today there will be no walking outside. I went to the gym and used the treadmill instead. I’ve been trying to go for weights monday, Wednesday and Friday and staying out of the gym Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I think today, just going for the tread mill was a good idea. It took a chunk out of my morning, but it kept me from wandering the neighborhood and getting in the way of people dealing with trees. I think they are trying to beat the cold front that is coming in.
As for me, I am trying to devise a system to keep my blankets over the flowers tonight but not crushing the flowers. It looks like i am getting ready to build a tent fort in the back yard. I’m not sure it counts as actual exercise, but it has gotten me moving.
And the world was calm enough that I actually managed to sit down long enough to actually try out the new foundation i purchased. You wouldn’t think that would be such a feat, but this week, it kinda turned out to be one of my few triumphs. Okay the triumph was actually getting to sit down in one place quietly long enough to actually put the makeup on rather than just trying the foundation. I’m sure you get the point. Anyway….
Primer: e.l.f poreless putty primer
Bronzer: Space Case Fakeation on mars
Highlighter: Beyond powder Highlighter from Illamasqua in OMG
Eyeshadow: Rimmel London Magnif’ eyes Crimson Edition
Mascara Ciate London WonderWand Mascara
I am going to be rotating through my different primers as I try out the foundation so i can see how it works with each. Since the e.l.f poreless putty primer tends to work with most foundations I’ve tried I started with it. Plus i really like the primer. Thus far I feel really good about the foundation. I’ll monitor it throughout the day and continue using it until next Thursday when i post a review. I’ll also be posting a review of the Ciate Eye Luster liquid shadow next week. I didn’t get to play around with it as much as I wanted this week so I want a little more time to develop my thoughts on it.
I have to say the more I use the Bounce and Blur Primer from bareMinerals the more I like it. It is such a great buildable formula. you can so easily tailor it to a BB cream or a full coverage foundation just by your application. And frankly, this color works well for me. i also really liked the sheered color of the bareMinerals gloss.
In fact everything I used this week worked well for me. I can’t remember if i’ve done a full review of the Rimmel eyeshadow palette. If I haven’t I’ll post one soon. It is not a new release. In fact it has been in my collection a while. I do like the Rimmel shadow formula, but I tend not to remember this palette that often. I think it is because it is rather on the small side and it really is a red toned moment whenever you reach for it. I do like the look I came up with today though. So I will have to remember to wear it more.
Well that is my look for the day. I left off the jewelry because I will be messing about in the garden this afternoon and even though it is my back yard there is always the possibility of having to converse with neighbors. So the mask is in my mack pocket and mask snagging earrings remain in the jewelry box. With luck I will be able to figure out how to protect my plants. Wish me luck.
