Good afternoon my darlings. Before I get into anything else I wanted to let you know that I just found a huge cache of comments in the spam folder on my admin page. Most of them shouldn’t be there and should have been posted as regular comments. I am so sorry and I am working to dig them out. i was not ignoring you I promise. Mixed in were of course several actual spam messages and one very nasty comment that made me think someone needed their mouth washed out with soap.
In addition there were a couple of comments regarding issues with the RSS feed. I went to the help section and chatted with the tech support for a bit. Apparently, I can’t do anything about your RSS feed, but you can. They gave me a link to the how to site that details how to fix things whatever you are subscribed to the RSS feed through your WordPress account or through another outside site. They also gave me a link for those of you who want direct assistance with the issue. It is a live tech support link and they can walk you through what to do. I would fix it for you if I could, but apparently I can’t. Hopefully the links will help. If they don’t please let me know and I’ll go back to talk with the tech folks and see what other fixes there are.
Today has mostly been dealing with housekeeping items like the comments accidentally sent to spam and trying to get caught up (and possibly a little ahead ) after the tech debacle earlier in the week. That seems to be a running theme for me this week. I managed a walk but mostly I am clearing the decks for tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going in for the first workout of the official professionally sanctioned plan. The issue is I don’t know how long the actual workout will take. So I’m trying to create a little space so I can figure it out and figure out next week’s scheduling a little bit early. I’m still kind of excited about starting the new program. It’s kind of like a first day of school feeling. hopefully it will last until things start to become routine and the habit of going to do the workout is ingrained.
Foundation: Becca Luminous Perfecting Foundation

I just couldn’t face the luminizing of the Pixi Primer. I think it is just a little too much for me. I will still play around with it, but today I went with my old stand by from Urban Decay. The product may have been around for a long time but it is still hard to beat. I am trying to reach for my Becca Foundation more often now that I know Becca is closing its doors in the autumn. I Really do like this foundation but there are other foundations I like as well and I have made the decision not to stock up on it at the last minute. I think remaining in love with a foundation that I know is going to end production is not the smartest idea. It is a path leading only to future lament. So i am going to use up the bottle I have and relegate it to a fond memory.
I did want to talk a moment about the Smashbox powder. It is the one where you turn and fresh powder is sliced off a disk and thus ‘freshly’ available to use. I love the powder, it is a very good loose setting powder. However each time I reach for it I am finding the dial harder and harder to turn. Is anyone else having this issue? I want to use the powder but find myself reaching for another product because I just don’t want to fiddle with the shaving dial. without the dial I’m pretty sure the disk of powder just becomes pressed powder so I might try fiddling with the container. if all goes wrong I’ll just have a disk of pressed powder. That might be a weekend project though.
The Violet Voss Palette is one I rarely reach for. I’m not entirely certain why. The shadows aren’t the most pigmented but they are buildable and they do blend well. I like how they apply and I like the look I put together today. It made it through my last declutter because I couldn’t remember if I used it or not. Now I’m glad I kept it.
On the daily front that is pretty much all there is to report. I will be going through the back log of comments I didn’t know was there and even though I normally try to return a comment on all of the ones I read if I don’t respond I am sorry, but please know I will read them all.
