Quick Takes

Seven bits of this and that today...

I usually find beauty products that I like, and then stick with them for a long time. But recently I decided to venture out of my comfort CoverGirl LashBlast zone and try NYC Big Bold Curl mascara. I've given it a fair shake and I'm not lovin' it. The wand is so big that it inhibits application, and I can't help but feel that it's wrong to put the caterpillar look alike so near my eye. The mascara itself goes on very "wet," and leaves my lashes too clumped together. I found that it helps to pull out the wand, and then wipe off some of the excess. Still not as good as my LashBlast

One product that I have been loving is moleskin. My new shoes have been rubbing the back of my heels, and this awful sounding product has been the solution. I've been using the generic brand from the grocery store, and it has made a world of difference!

I recently wrote a guest post for another blog. Check it out here.

I was drinking my coffee this am, and decided to tight roll my pants. Hmm. I don't know what I think.

What's that? You want to know where that sweet snood is from? I made it from an old sweater, and you can do it, too!

Has anybody out there ever had a case of "Blogger's Panic?" More than I would care to admit.

And that's a wrap. Have a great weekend and go see Jen for more takes!


  1. I love tight rolled pants (is that what they're called?)! Also, I just love those pants in general, and the whole outfit, really. Two thumbs way up ;)

  2. You look like a pregnant super model. Can't believe that's #4 in there!

  3. Aw Mar! Thanks for linking to my post. I think you look great with your pants tight rolled like that. And that guest post you wrote is great and sooo true. Love you!:)

  4. Cropped pants are everywhere (except when I want to buy them); rolling the pants definitely works :)

    1. I know, I've been hankering for some new ones myself, but the maternity aspect of my situation is somewhat limiting : )
