Makeup and Margaritas

When I was young, as my mom shifted through the daily pile of mail I would complain that there was never any mail for me. “You’ll get a lot of mail when you’re older, and then you won’t want it because it will all be bills.” Ain’t that the truth…but I still manage to get excited over packages. Even if it’s something I’ve ordered for myself…it’s just fun!

So that’s how I felt when I came home the other day and found a small package propped up against my door.

My Bare Minerals makeup came!

My goodies

During a show I did a months back I had forgotten my makeup one night. My castmate came to my rescue and I used her Bare Minerals foundation…and fell in love. So as soon as my regular makeup started to run out I hopped on their site and ordered foundation, blush, eyeliner and mascara.

After wearing them all a few days I have to say it’s not too different than what I was using in terms of lightness and color. But my skin does seem to be clearer with a nice natural sheen. Their skin match on their website makes any worry of ordering the wrong color slip away. I had to guess a bit more on the blush, but the color I got was perfect. Haven’t tried the eyeliner yet, but love the ease of the mascara!

I’ve been big on switching over to all natural makeup and this stuff has a great rating on EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database 🙂

In other exciting news I came across this baby yesterday…

I’m an un-ashamed fan of The Real Housewives…I just can’t help it, those crazy ladies fascinate me with their cluelessness. And even though I think she needs to include a cupcake a day to her diet I’ve been so curious about her Skinny Girl cocktails. Verdict? Delish! Not too sweet and doesn’t taste any different than the real thing. And with only 37 calories per 1.5 ounces you don’t feel too guilty indulging.

All natural ingrediants too!

Welp, that’s all I have for now. Going to enjoy a yummy mango Whole Fruit popsicle and watch Mrs. Doubtfire 🙂

  1. Ooh, I’m excited about the skinnygirl margaritas- I love me some margaritas but with all the sugar and crap in the sweet and sour mix I hate to think about all the calories. I might have to pick some up.

    And you’re right, there is nothing quite like the excitement you feel when you see a package you ordered on your front stoop…
