Haven’t done one of these in a while, just a general stuff I love, and it’s not always perfume!
Cle de Peau Correcteur Visage – I have never found a concealor that does what it is supposed to do, it gets too cakey in my creases under my eyes, winds up making me look more tired, but the CdeP is great. I had the makeup chick put it on me in the store when I’d had about three hours of sleep (this seems to be the new norm for sleep), and, voila, I was still dog-tired, but I didn’t look like it, and it took all the ruddy out of my cheeks too. Great stuff! Greatly priced as well, pretty much obscene, but, you know, beauty knows no price if it wipes out your
minor imperfections — major wrinklage. Available at any snooty department store in your neighborhood or that same guy from Japan that sells the Shiseido perfumes has some.
Amazing Race – It’s a new race, yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the reality show I adore. All the rest are posers.
Chi Silk Infusion – you put this stuff on your hair after you wash it, and it turns your hair to silk, and I mean that literally, just smooth and shiny and amazing. I love this. I have thick, somewhat coarse hair. Not rough, but just thick. I put this on, and I get the silky hair of my dreams. Between this and Kerastase shampoo, my hair pretty much looks like it is 17 again, though the rest of me isn’t matching so much. My son has even started borrowing this and is about ready to steal it. He has the same thick, coarse hair that loses its shine easily, and this just smooths out his hair and makes it super-shiny.
That Spring is Coming – I know it’s not quite time yet, and Colorado has its two snowiest months to go through yet, but spring is coming, it’s almost here, I can feel it. I love the winter, but it is always wonderful as it gives way to new life.
And today Lent begins. My heartfelt prayer for a reflective, fruitful Lenten season. Ash Wednesday always feels like the Dead Day, the time when winter gathers and asks us to be quiet and turn inward, stripping our lives to the bare minimum so we can see ourselves more clearly.
That, and I once again discover how much I detest fish.
