This cup of coffee is so necessary on this rainy Monday. At least its rainy here where I live. Anyways I just have a couple updates and currents in my life right now I just wanted to blab about for a second. The first is that I am picking a ton of makeup and beauty products over the next month and placing a huge order which I am so incredibly incredibly excited for! I haven’t actually gone makeup shopping in a really long time. My collection had become weak as I was only ever buying a last minute replacement mascara or concealer from the drugstore when I had run out. I also had to go through a lot of products and throw out the ones that had gotten old or become unusuable (dried out gel eyeliner or empty compacts anyone?) I actually think it would be fun to do a huge haul post after I get everything in and then maybe a couple first impressions. Who knows, maybe some of it will become an absolute staple in my makeup bag or maybe I’ll hate it. So far I have a ton of eyeshadow singles to fill my Z palette and a blush palette as well as a huge set of false lashes (I found a set of 80 for $14 on amazon so I figured why not get it to use to playing around or parties since I am in college and cant exactly afford to spend $30 on a single set of lashes unless there was a big event I was going to) and a new self tanner so we’ll see.
This past week I have gotten really into the TV show Elementary and random documentaries. I get home from work, turn on an episode of Elementary while cooking dinner or do laundry while watching a nice documentary. The most recent one I watched was Yves Saint Laurent. I have a whole list I want to try to get through this summer if I can. I just find them inspiring! Even though the YSL one wasn’t entirely a documentary it still went through the life and struggles of the famous designer as he started his own label and took off into fashion stardom. A couple I have on my list are: Salinger, Bill Cunningham New York, and The September Issue. A majority of the documentaries are in English but YSL was in French. I actually am starting to enjoy watching a French film or two. Populaire was a good one I watched a couple of weeks ago.
