I have an exam in 2 hours, so naturally I am doing everything I can to avoid thinking about it. It's time for (Da da da DA!) In's and Out's.
Glowy skin: I just did a video on my new skincare routine, but I am still loving it! My skin is healthy and hydrated looking. I am experimenting with mixing several foundations for the perfect finish. Today I mixed a 3rd Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, a 3rd Laura Mercier moisturizing foundation, and a 3rd Clinique Even Better. By mixing them you get more coverage than the TM alone would give you, but it is still dewy and gorgeous. Here is my skincare video, if you didn't catch it already.
Tween Books: I love to read, and I read at all levels. Some days you can catch me with a classic novel or the latest Dan Brown book, but other times I have a good tween book in my hands - plucked straight out of the kids section of the bookstore. I just finished up the Percy Jackson series and I am on book 4 of the House of Night series. I stopped by the bookstore while I was home, and picked up Dan Brown's newest book, The Lost Symbol. Can't wait to start on it!
Project 10 pan: I haven't officially started yet, but I might as well today since I am thinking about it. I have a bunch of products that are at its very end currently, like 2 Nars laguna bronzers that are each at the last little rim, but I don't know if those count toward the 10 since they only have a few days left each. What do you guys think?
Growing out my hair: I have been good to my hair lately, using lots of protectant products and such, and I think I can tell a difference! My hair is starting to look really nice and long! I still want extensions though... we will see.
Visiting home: I was just home last weekend, and I get to go home again this weekend! Although the reason is scary (LASIK) it is still nice to be home for a little while to visit with family. That brings up a definite out though - driving for 7 hours each way constantly.
Glasses and Contacts: Yippee for LASIK in 9 days. I am currently on day 5 of wearing glasses (you can't wear contacts for a full 14 days before the surgery) and I am getting more and more excited at the prospect of not having to bother with these for a good, long time. When I get old and gray I am sure I will have to wear glasses to read or something, but by then I won't mind.
General frumpiness: whenever I go more than the allotted time between hair colorings/brow waxes/ or pedicures I start to feel very frumpy. I am feeling that now - my hair stylist keeps getting booked up when I have a chance to come in to see her. I just tried calling in - she is all booked up. Ugh.
Exams: I have one today - not fun. Not pretty.
