G’morning! Happy Saturday! And happy Halloween weekend.
You’ll never guess what just happened. Connor walked into my office and very firmly stated, “Mama, I want to wear lipstick.”
Then, she specifically requested a bright fuchsia from among the products I was playing with.
After she was done putting it on (and she did a good job too!), she looked at herself in the mirror and said, “I look AMAZING.” Then she stomp-walked out of the room to go watch cartoons.
I’m extra amused by this because 1) I know that exact same feeling you get when your lipstick is extra great, and 2) I was actually thinking that I need to treat myself to a new lipstick today, and I’m considering one of the Ilia Color Block High Impact Lipsticks from Sephora.
Have you tried them before? I’m still deeply enamored with Ilia, which is why I want to grab one.
So, I can’t believe tomorrow is Halloween. It feels like this month, and truthfully the entire summer, came and went so quickly! I don’t know if it was just having a few more things to do and social events this year than last year is the reason, but I remember last October seeming to drag on and on forever… I also remember, clear as day, the worry I felt last fall and winter. I mean, I still constantly live with low-level worry because of the pandemic, but being able to do things like attend birthday parties and Halloween parades without feeling like every decision is life or death has made this fall a little more exciting and, dare I say it, normal.
Now I’m off to go run some Saturday errands (Costco, groceries and Sports Basement to look into ski equipment rentals), and hey, if a lipstick or two fall into my lap…I’m just going to go with it! 😊
This weekend’s reading
Drop that knowledge on me, please.
Well, now I wanna eat vegetables.
Well this is some intense pumpkin carving.
Love the green top.
I loved dancing around in my roller skates to this song when I was a kid.
Oldie but goodie
I hope your lipstick looks good and you feel extra amazing today! Have a great Halloween and a wonderful weekend. 🎃🤗
