Sometimes I feel a bit envious of girls who can throw out the names of their favourite lipsticks and beauty products and who keep up with trends and new products. I'm still shocked that foundation primer is a thing that exists, because I am naive about and hopeless at makeup! I enjoy it, but I'm not very adventurous with it, and I tend to lose interest once I've seen the price. Lipstick is the most fun, I think.
The other day Katie suggested that I try pale pink lipstick. I've never worn pink on my face because I always thought that it wouldn't complement an olive complexion. Katie said that was nonsense and since she is an amazing lady who I will always listen to and because the words "pale pink" make me happy, I bought Revlon lipstick in "Pink Pout" to try it out. I liked it!
I posted a smirky picture on Flickr, and Megan, the other person that I should hire as my personal beauty guru, told me to try "Roman Holiday" by NARS. So, because I rarely buy expensive lipstick and thought maybe it was time that I did, I took a quick trip to Sephora, and I also really like it! It doesn't look the same on as it does in the tube, though, and is more glossy than the Revlon.
Maybe next I'll try an orange colour -- I've heard good things about MAC's "So Chaud."
Jane Flanagan: Yes! I think Catholicism is a spooky religion! I was terrified of a statue in the church we used to go to that was of Mary with her foot on a snake with an apple in its mouth. Horrifying. I'm part skeptical, part all-believing.
Kate: The reading I had was pretty general -- she told me to ask my guides for counsel, and a lot of the stuff that she said is kind of out of my hands. Really just a reminder to follow my intuition -- although I do have to pay attention if a light-haired guy with an "S" name comes into my life. Ha!
Madi: Cool! Hope you did it!
Emily: Oh how beautiful! I love that picture but it could be a little spooky (in a good way) since you're turned around. It looks like a film still!
m.bardeaux: Nice! I have a deck of Tarot cards at my parents' house but I never got around to thinking I was "qualified" to do it, haha.
Gusssygirl: Cool, thanks for sharing those links!
Anna: I was a little nervous before I went in but it was great!
Hopscotch: Yeah, it was nice! Thanks for being a part of a pretty wonderful day.
Hello Lindello: I don't think they tell you really horrible things... but I'm not sure!
It's pretty fun, though!
Tracey: I know all about that! And yeah, I was worried about the stuff I didn't want to hear, and the friends I was with heard some things that they didn't want to hear, but it was also weirdly comforting. Plus you can just choose not to believe it! What a silly ghost you had!
Hollie: I will email you!
Jen: Whoa, that sounds amazing! I wish I knew more about this animal business, and I wish I had taken notes! Yeah, I got super emotional, it was crazy.
Gillian: Oooh! That sounds simultaneously terrifying and amazing. I once was supposed to go on a "Jack the Ripper Walk" in London which now just sounds kind of tasteless but as a teenager I thought it was cool.
Katie: Thank you! We do try to keep on top of the cleaning -- usually just one big cleaning day (Sunday morning/early afternoon) with occasional touch ups during the week. Usually by Saturday the apartment is a messy nightmare that makes me crazy.
beckie: I get scared so easily! When Geoff wanted me to go into the abandoned building we recently went into, I was terrified, although I've wanted so badly to go in there! It's all about the hyperactive imagination, I guess.
Caitlin Rose: Aw, that's kind of sweet!
Jenny: I have seen it! It traumatized me when I was little and I spent most of my adult life wondering what movie it was that I had seen. I watched it again a few years ago and it was still pretty spooky! We went to see the lady at Southern Accent on Markham.
Lotte and Bloom, wildflowers, Antonia, galatea., third room studio: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed!
