As Pretty as Possible for Destiny

I'm typically known for my pretty steady hand, especially in the make-up department. I used to line my lips with the best of them and learned a lot from having a sister six-years my elder. But this whole liquid eyeliner thing has really challenged my skills. For a while, I thought the trend was going to go away and I could go back to the smoldering eyeliner look (which is still ok) but I envy that beautiful, clean look of the liquid eye, and that fun little flip you can add to the end on special occasions (gives you that pinup look of Marilyn Monroe or Angeline Jolie).

So, I've tried all different kinds - mostly the cheap ones cause I just couldn't commit, but now I'm truly walking the line per the recommendation from my sister-in-law of Lancome's Artliner. It has a tiny little foam tip that just rolls across my eyes and gives me what I've been looking for!!! It's not cheap ($28) but it's gonna last me a long time (and I got a Sephora gift card for Christmas). If you're looking for the perfect liquid eyeliner, I would definitely give this a go!

“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” Coco Chanel

  4. I walked around sephora for an hour one day trying to find the best liquid eyeliner. I like the foam brush but some put out too much liquid...I ended up leaving empty handed. My next stop was Victoria Secret...and you wouldn't believe what I found! The most perfect foam tipped liquid eyeliner...for $12!!!! I haven't looked back. Go give it a try on your hand in the store!

  5. The quote made me feel bad. Today for the first time ever, I went to the bank without fixing my hair or putting on makeup. I didn't even put my bra on (I just put my coat on) I was even tempted to keep my slippers on...but I didn't go that far. I am glad I didn't have my date with destiny ...or maybe I did and destiny looked the other way because of how I was dressed!

    Happy New Year!

  8. One of my 2009 resolutions is to always at least put on mascara and lipstick every morning. When I don't, bad things happen: I see an ex-boyfriend I haven't seen in years, somebody asks me to do publicity for a project, etc. And I love your idea to pick a theme song for 2009! It's like a mission statement you can sing -- perfect!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back . Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets. Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad. Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!! Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night . I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

The Power of Prayer

I wanted to update on a previous post about my uncle ( you can read it here ). In September, he was diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer. He has undergone numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and received results back from his latest PET scan this Monday. Of chief concern was the tumor in the lower lobe of the right lung and the lymph nodes in the center of his chest. The scan showed that there was NO cancer activity in the lymph nodes! All in all, it was a great report! My aunt and uncle, with their grandkids. My prayer list is long for friends and family members struggling with disease and lately, I hear of so many children struggling as well. It's so hard not to question God during these times, but to put complete faith in him - which is much easier said than done! Isaiah 40:31 But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Another wonderful praise that happe

Pretty Women

I think I've seen the movie Pretty Woman about 100 times and it will always be my favorite. My husband thinks it's the cheesiest movie he has ever seen, but hey, he's not the target audience. So, my tour of Rodeo Dr started at the Reg Bev Will (Pretty Woman fans, you know what I'm talking about). Walking through it, the lobby looked so much smaller than in the movie. We ended up at the back entrance, and plopped down on a bench and acted like we owned the place for a bit while watching for anyone famous. We saw numerous $100 thousand+ cars, and one chick with long blonde hair (only from the back) that had to be famous, but we didn't see her face. Then, we walked down Rodeo, into a couple of stores that I couldn't afford to buy a keychain in, tried on a $1,200 pair of shoes, and walked right into a celebrity sighting. One of my goals while in LA was to see someone famous. And, she may not be on the A-list, but it was still pretty cool. Meet the beautiful Cam
