I don’t really have favorite beauty products so instead I just did my makeup for you. Now you get to see that I’m a makeup bum.


This morning is an off morning. I had to do the vlog twice since I accidentally deleted the first one. Then I left my phone at home. How am I suppose to become mayor of my work place if I leave my phone at home?!

Also, I use the Evernote app for my grocery list and I’m grocery shopping right after work today. I like to have my list (organized my aisle) on my phone with links to the recipes to reference in case I need to fact check my list. I’ve been spoiled by technology. It’s going to make me a little twitchy this afternoon when I break out the pen and paper.



15 days til road tripping to Arkansas with Treavor!
41 days til Vegas with Bloggers in Sin City!
83 days til Pittsburgh to visit my sister!
147 days til Suki visits me!
175 days til Seattle with BFF!


I’ve fallen off the Draw Something bandwagon but have boarded the Instragram for Android bandwagon. I haven’t posted yet but you can follow me at “curiousnotions”.


Alan and I didn’t win the lottery. No six month vacation for us. We planned on taking care of the folks and then getting on a plane and flying to random places. Hong Kong for a bit. Amsterdam for another bit. Alas, the odds were not in our favor.


I’m inching closer to the last year of my twenties.


This week’s moments of bliss: ♥ writing morning pages ♥ an exciting conversation ♥ everything about the previous weekend ♥ giving Bob doggy ice cream to abate the guilt I had for clipping one of his nails too bloody short ♥ being conscious that life is really good ♥ mom sending me to Austin with her pho ♥ starting morning 3 emails with Suki ♥ scheming with Treavor ♥ Fancy Dress Night and Alan being my date ♥ miscommunication at work and three people bringing donuts instead of one ♥ finishing American Gods ♥ Starting BossypantsCindy motivating to get off my arse and get something done

Question: What is something you keep putting off?
