Buying Stuff: Episode 4

Standard

I spend a lot of time on the couch. It’s the one thing I do that I do very well. In my house, couch-sitting is an Olympic sport and I am the undefeated, gold-medaling champ.

But when combined with pajamas and an iPad, I’m downright unstoppable. Because:

Things like that happen.

I’m telling you, I don’t even know what it’s like to be normal anymore.

My status quo lately? Undeniably buying stuff. All the pretty things that others have, I want. Then I just make it happen. It’s seriously like magic.

Anyway, picked up a few things at Sephora as I am wont to do. Needed a body scrub so thought I’d give Soap & Glory a try. The Flake Away had a little travel size available for $5 so yes, please. Nexxxxxxt.

I wanted something from Illamasqua. Don’t judge me when I say I didn’t even care much what it was exactly, I just wanted to own something from the brand. That sounds exactly as if I have some sort of a shopping problem. But we’re just gonna ignore all the warning signs and move right along.

After scrolling through their offerings, I decided on a lovely cream blush in the shade Zygomatic, which is described as a peachy beige. Looked pretty online, but one never really knows about these things. Lemme just say, I am so very pleased. I don’t own any blushes in this color, so that proves right there that I needed it. But also, in person it’s just so so so nice. Feeling pretty darn pleased with myself at this point.

Now I have saved the best for last. One of my You Tube beauty gurus did a video on the Kat Von D Esperanza palette. And in proper form, I went and purchased it about 2.5 seconds later. Here’s a close-up of the colors:

Well. I love. That’s all I can really say. Don’t they just speak the word spring to you? I find a sort of peace and serenity just looking at it. In the midst of the gloomy grayness of winter, I can temporarily be fast forwarded about 3 months. And it cures me. Kat Von D’s Esperanza palette cures me. It’s basically a medical necessity. Therefore justified.

And then as you can see there is a tiny sample of Origins CC cream. It was a freebie. Sephora gives you gifts with purchase, and out of all the tube-like products to choose from (as there’s no way in hell I’m choosing anything that comes in packet form), the Origins seemed the best choice. Hopefully I’m right.

So that’s it. I bought stuff. What else is new? Good night.
