I woke up this morning completely excited about receiving a fantastic swap package from Mel at Idée Géniale and because I got to wear the new high waist skirt I got downtown at Zara yesterday. I have really been into high waists and belts which is so not me. I think finally at 27 I have accepted that I have hips and I am not a waif-like runway model. No. I am 5'5 and I weigh more that 90 pounds. I used to wear only long shirts and hip-hugging skirts in A-line form. But, I feel like it is OK to have hips and butt now. Plus, my husband likes when I wear things that I fitted (like all men do).
Well, I love my new skirt but I dressed super quick this morning and threw on this turquoise shirt that I have had for years. I just don't think this outfit works. I should have chosen a different top and I really considered not posting. But, what good would that do! Fashion isn't always 'on' for everyone, every day. Oh well, tomorrow is a new day....with no (fashion) mistakes in it.
This past Saturday, while out thrifting and antiquing (or apparently 'junking' as a old shopman told us), Leilani (from Thriftaholic) asked me a beauty question about what I consider the best non-sticky lipgloss. I felt sort of bad because I didn't give her a really thought out answer. I guess it is hard because I come across so many lip glosses at work. But after long thought, I have narrowed down five of my favorite lip products for you!
1. Lipstick - Napoleon Perdis Devine Goddess Lipstick
Why? Glides on easily, doesn't dry and has great color
2. Lip Gloss - Bare Escentuals Buxom Big and Healthy lip polish
Why? Although sticky, it doesn't dry you lips out and it gives good plump!
3. Lip Stain - Urban Decay Lip Envy
Why? It is the only lip stain that doesn't dry my lips out. It keeps good color.
4. Non-sticky (in my opinion) Lip Gloss - CARGO Classic Lip gloss with Time Strip Technology
Why? Non sticky! Great color and great feel on the lips.
5. Tinted Lip Balm - Benefit Benetint Lip Balm
Why? Smells like roses, perfect sheer color, keeps your lips moisturized!
