5 Things I Love Right Now

  Well, this week I was supposed to be up in Boston for work, but the workshop I was going to (and my flight) got cancelled due to the sky blizzarding all over everything. I had planned an afternoon of shopping at all the stores we don’t have around here, so I’m a little disappointed the rug got pulled out from under that.

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvets Swatches & Review

  It’s no secret to long-time readers that I am in love with Burberry makeup, especially their powder products. The blushes are incredible, and I’ve got more eyeshadow singles from them than any other brand. One thing that never really took off in my collection though is their lipsticks. That’s the one category of makeup I’m hesitant to buy online sight-unseen, partly because I’m finicky about textures, partly because there’s a high risk of  ...
