This morning, this is the makeup that I am using. I am trying to make more of an effort to use all of the makeup that I have, so I am finding that blogging about it is helping with that endeavor.
Marc Jacobs Starlet eyeshadow pallet (I used the darkest color this morning)
Mac’s Raizin blush
Rimmel’s Stay Matte Primer (sometimes I prefer to just use this instead of foundation.)
Cargo lip gloss (Sorry, I don’t remember the color)
Bath and Body works Paris In Bloom body spray
I must have been feeling wonderful this morning because I felt like wearing make up. Not typical on the weekends for me, but anyway…this is what I wore.
Foundation – Tarte amazionian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in rich sand
Blush – Tarte amazonian clay 12 hour blush in blushing bride
Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Asphyxia (New buy! It’s beautiful)
Lips – Maybelline colorsensational elixir in amethyst potion
Scent – Victoria Secret’s Pink Spring Break (bought this last year during the semi-annual sale and wish I could find a bigger bottle. I love it.)
All winter, I had been looking for new ankle boots. Low and behold, at the beginning of Spring, I finally find a pair that I like. I’m not really a warm weather boot wearer, so these lucky finds will have to wait until the fall. Aren’t they cute?
How do you handle stress? My doctor once told me that I didn’t handle stress well. She’s right. Most of the time when I have to much going on and to many demands on me, I want to just abandon everything. I used to go to a private area and cry for about ten minutes, but I have stopped doing that. It never worked anyway.
So, what to do? I usually just take a few breaths to try to calm myself down. I tell myself to stop over-reacting and just take a minute to do something unrelated to the thing that is causing me stress. Sometimes, I eat sweets (definitely not the best solution for me).
Anyway, it’s a work in process. I’m still trying to figure out how to become that calm, cool, and collected person that I would like to be. It’s right up there on my list to become extremely smart and successful.
Talk to you all soon……..
This week I have been thinking about this saying. I have just realized that there is also a book based on this saying/theory. I have been trying to practice doing this during the week. There seems as if there is so much going on that I am just trying to concentrate on one thing at a time and don’t let the little things overwhelm me. I’m sure there will be huge hiccups in life that I will have to concentrate on more!
