The mozzarella sticks didn’t turn out as pretty (my fault) but everything still tasted great! Even the melted mozzarella sticks. Feeling pretty smug about it… :)
Today I had a quick breakfast at La Madeleine’s and afterwards picked up the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush. I bought that ambient powder a few weeks ago and still love it but my usual kabuki brush picks up way too much of the powder and I saw reviews saying this brush was really worth it if you use the powder. I have been using my Sephora 15% off for my recent purchases and it expires after this weekend so I wanted to get it while I could get the discount because it’s sorta frivolous feeling.
Received two free samples with my purchase. Neither of which I’ve ever tried before. The Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus eye cream and Josie Maran Argan Oil. Both of which I’ve heard great things. The argan oil I’m most cautious about though because my face and oil rarely play well together. Even if I just use it in my hair at the tips it could brush my face and maybe break me out. So I’m going to wait until after this upcoming wedding I have to go to is over before trying it out.
Lastly I received those organic cotton reusable facial pads I was tweeting about this weekend too.
Ordered these from an Etsy shop and started using them this morning. I think it would be nice to have something reusable as long as they work as well as disposable cotton. I just went through a lot of cotton every single day and yeah I feel guilty about that. These I can just wash with my normal laundry (in the small laundry bag they came with.) So here’s hoping they work as well! *fingers crossed*
As my birthday approaches I think less about how much I’ve changed on my own and more about the select few in my life that have changed me for the better. There are times I’m in such awe that I even have these people in my life. I should be alone. But there truly are people who are not only there for me even when I push away; but who fully accept me as I am. I can tell them everything and I feel no judgement. They may see this as so insignificant and unimportant but to me, and who I am, their impact on the entirety of my life has been monumental. They have been there for me in times that I just couldn’t carry myself anymore. Times when I wanted to quit. I wanted to run. They carried me. Not through powerful monologues and philosophical moments of clarity but with simple messages of “good morning” and “it’ll be ok.”
This birthday I stopped feeling as though I was getting older and instead I started feeling that I keep getting luckier and luckier.
