If you’ve read any blog posts about blogging tips, a majority of bloggers will say to carry a notebook or planner with you so you can keep track of posts and jot down any ideas that come to mind at any given time. I love the idea of having a little notebook to record these things down in, but I’m terrible at keeping notebooks and planners so I never do. I always start off a year with one and then after a month or two it just goes to the wayside. I do have a tentative blog post schedule and a running list of ideas to post about which I’ve been keeping as a draft in my email. Since I’m not good about keeping a little notebook with me, I just edit my draft whenever necessary since I always have my phone with me. Why am I telling you about this? Well the other night as I was in bed I got an idea for a post and went to add it to my list on my phone. I made a mistake and accidentally discarded the draft!!! And it wasn’t in my trash because it was a draft and not an actual email! Surprisingly, I didn’t freak out. I was kinda in disbelief for a minute and then just started a new draft and wrote down everything I could remember being in my upcoming schedule. It’s a bit of a bloggers’ nightmare, but not the end of the world. Now maybe I’ll invest in a physical planner….
Moving on, I wanted to wear this colorful infinity scarf to work the other day before it gets too warm to wear a scarf. It was a Christmas gift from a student and since it has so many colors, I decided to wear it with a very neutral outfit.
You may have noticed, if you have seen a bunch of my OOTD posts, that I like to wear tank tops under most of my tops. I like that the color of this one pairs nicely with the scarf.
In my Monday-Thursday (no work on Friday this week!) makeup basket this week….
Face: Smashbox More than Primer Blemish Control, Covergirl + Olay Tone Rehab Foundation, Benefit Erase Paste, Smashbox High Definition Concealer, bareMinerals Well Rested, Neutrogena Mineral Powder, bareMinerals Mineral Veil, Milani Baked Bronzer, L’oreal Magic Lumi Primer (highlight), bareMinerals Luminizer, Cargo blush (Tonga), MAC Fix+
Eyes: Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer, NYX eyeshadow palette (Love in Paris – Let them Eat Cake), Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara, Wet n Wild Brow kit
Lips: Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Colour Balm (Curvy Candy)
I love Clinique chubby stick colour balms. They are so moisturizing and are on the sheerer side. The Cargo blush comes off more brown in the picture than it really is in person. In person, it is a beautiful, dusty rose/mauve color. Stay tuned this weekend when I’ll be sharing what makeup, skincare, haircare I’ll be bringing with me on vacation!
And last, but not least, let me share a closeup of the scarf!
