The Daily: June 1st, 2021

Good afternoon and welcome to June. It still looks very strange to see that written out. Over the weekend the temperatures dropped so now it feels like it is back to being early March. Over the weekend though we did get to open all of the windows and completely air the house out. The fresh air was nice, however the biggest benefit was not watching our central air system struggle between seasons.

And of course now the house feels extra fresh and clean. Which is nice.

I don’t know if it is just because we are coming off a three day weekend or what but today it feels as though everything is taking twice as long as usual. Its like that extra day made everyone completely lose their place from where they stopped on Friday. I really hope that it is just a slow start to the week and not a sign of the entire week.

I don’t think it helped that I overindulged this weekend. There was dinner and drinks with friends on Friday night. Take out and then a barbeque for Memorial Day. I lost track of anything even resembling a calorie count. Today I got back on track though and went back to writing down what I am eating.

On the plus side, the weather is absolutely fabulous to walk in right now so I got up early to start summer hours (even though there was no heat to beat today) and managed to get two long walks in today. I may have gone completely off track this weekend, but I am back in the correct lane now. And I plan to stay on track.

You will also notice that I went a little over board with the trimming of the bangs this weekend. I trimmed them and then realize they were lopsided so they ended up shorter than I planned just so I could make them reasonably straight. I think I need to clean up some details, but by the time I ended up with what I have I needed to step away from the scissors more. While it turned out okay, it really shows off how bad my brows have gotten. Clean up begins tonight. However…

This week I am testing out the Too Faced Liquid matte eyeshadow. I have the one color in Amaretto. It came in A Boxy charm actually. I love the fact that it is matte as every other liquid eyeshadow I have is a shimmer. Today I wore it alone and in upcoming days I’ll try pairing it with other products. This first use was interesting. I found my fingers were more useful for blending it than the applicator stick. I will be playing around with it, but as a one shade across the lids it worked really well, dried down pretty fast and didn’t crease at all. Thus far it seems like a pretty good product.

In fact everything that I used today I liked. I think this No 7 Foundation may be one I reach for a lot this upcoming summer. I may have to check the shades though and get one slightly darker if it is available. I really like the way it melted into the skin and felt weightless. It is definitely a formula I will be keeping handy.
