Seriously. I know it sounds harsh but I do hate summer. Always have. As a kid, I was happy to be out of school but that was literally the only thing I liked about summer. I want boots and jackets, falling leaves, hot drinks, a cool breeze or crisp air, and Mac and Cheese. I love Snow Days. I want to live as close to the Arctic Circle as possible.
I am long overdue for an edit and declutter of my eyeshadow palettes.

I had an amazing day at Brimfield Flea a few weeks ago. I was prepared, arrived early, and only had t0 hit the cash machine once for an emergency supplement to my planned budget. As you can see from this web photo, it’s big. Hence, the overwhelming feeling that comes over me everytime I go but I press on. It was hot. Which normally, I would complain about
This has been my makeup routine as of late. It may seem burdensome but I can do it in ten minutes if I need to. NEUTROGENA Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint – An excellent light coverage foundation that leaves my skin looking hydrated. This is supposed to be a dupe for La Mer’s Soft Fluid foundation that costs $120.
