Gratuitous make up take. Move along boys, move along.
But for you ladies, I read Hallie Lord's link up post here, in which she refers to an edifying list of reviewed BB creams here. Honestly, I had never heard of BB creams. But I read the list, and on my next sojourn to Warmalt, I picked up this little game changer.
And I experimented. This stuff comes out white and grainy, but when you rub it on your face the little color beads burst and turn into regular smooth skin colored cream. I didn't believe it either, but it does!
My favorite part about the L'oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream is that it is Matte finish. I don't know about you, but when a cosmetologist tells me a product leaves a "dewy finish," I translate that as "oily, sweaty, high shine" because my face generates enough "dew" on its own. Thankyouverymuch.
I rarely use grocery store products, because I hate makeup that smells, and I hate buying something that I can't test first. Let's face it, grocery store testers are gross, if they haven't walked off already. But at under $10, this product was something I will recommend.
Have you heard about my Jesse Tree Ornament Swap?
It's incredible how many timely, organized, creative people have already sent or brought or completed their ornaments.
|Samuel, Moses, and Adam showed up yesterday. Aren't they lovely?|
I am not one of those people.
C'mon. I'm doing my Friday QT's on Saturday, so I'm running a bit behind.
Trying to write these Quick Takes, quickly. Last night, after a Mexican dinner in honor of the Feast of Blessed Miguel Pro, we did NOT watch For the Greater Glory, but instead watched The Amazing Spider-man. Naturally.
Everybody liked it! It's quite good. And very family friendly. Check it out.
For the Greater Glory is very good too, but also very violent. Definitely not for the little ones.
I am an avid movie-goer-watcher-lover. The Chef...not so much. I'm trying to get him to take me to the theater tonight to see Argo or Lincoln or Wreck-It Ralph. What do you recommend?
Did you read Grace's quick takes?
Nashville. We are loving it. Big time Connie Briton fans, Nashville fans, country music fans. And we are enjoying the show too. But yes, there should be more music, less politics.
Speaking of Grace...did you hear I won a giveaway? I won $50 to Modern Furniture Warehouse and was planning to buy this wreath.
But, alas, they were out of stock, and I do believe I might be able to find something similar for a wee bit less than the $217 plus change they charge.
I did get to upgrade our mailbox though. Look at this beautiful copper creation!
The Chef and I are in discussions about a tentative family voyage to South Dakota. Why South Dakota? Because Edmund had a Social Studies test that included Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Yes, I realize that there will be many more Social Studies test, but somehow the Mesabi Range of Minnesota, the nation's source for iron ore, didn't strike a chord with me the same way.
We've often talked about a "big trip out West someday," and now faced with the idea that our chicks will leave the nest for college and adulthood in the next few (1.5) years, we better get a move on.
The Chef wants to include mountain, Tetons, I think he said. I want to include Wall Drug and outlet malls. So pour forth your Western wisdom. We are total greenhorns about this part of the world.
Go see Jen and co. for yesterday's quick takes.
