Monday Obsessions

 True to form this will probably a random post.  But there are always a few obsessions floating around in my head! This is probably also because I really meant to go to the gym and wasn't sure I would have time for this but with the frigid temps and the polar vortex in the South I opted for a night in.

I gotta say, Target is bringing the Hunter impersonation. $40. Lots of colors. I need to get an order in before I head to Scotland! Too bad I don't have them this week for the bad weather. 

I did not get any of the Laura Mercier makeup that was on my Christmas list.  All fine and well -- I had a really special year.  But I had to find some more powder and foundation so to Revlon we turn.  Gotta save some dollar bills for traveling.  I've been in a huge rut so I grabbed this foundation for something different.  I've been attempting more foundation, less powder.  It settles into my laugh lines something fierce lately.  I think you can find at drugstores for $10-12ish dollars.

I also grabbed some Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder.  I keep finding this on super discount for like $6 every time I have bought it so I fear it will be discontinued soon.  I should probably stock up. 

I feel like the new makeup and the African Black Soap I previously wrote about are working.  Today my coworker said my makeup looked very "fresh".  This is good for today...not sure what it meant for my last 6 months there. Oh well.  You can't win 'em all.  I really like the Black Soap but I think using it twice a day is a bit much on my face.  But I do feel like my skin really likes it.  I would actually also recommend it for shaving as well! 

{bookworm: "The Goldfinch"}

I recently finished Donna Tartt's new novel, " The Goldfinch".  It completely lived up to the hype.  I've been bogged down with YA books and historical fiction lately and this book was just what I needed.  I flew threw it.  Do me a favor and put it on your "To Read" list! I really loved the characters she created and the crazy amount of detail.  I hope that you are also lucky enough to find a good Kindle deal like I did when your purchase. for life.  

I could probably go on...but I won't.  What are you obsessed with? Am I missing out on anything?

  1. Love those glossy rain boots! And I've had this book on my reading list for a while. I'll have to take the plunge once I start reading the other 10 books I bought that I'm still waiting to read :)
