Off topic story of the day…
My mum is in her mid 60’s and volunteers weekly at a church flea market thingy. Most of the ladies she volunteers with are in their 70-80’s but my mum still has a way with making friends with anyone and everyone no matter the age gap.
To make a long story short one lady she befriended is an 87 years old woman who recently had issues with her TV. So my mum of course volunteered to give her a TV she had hanging out in the basement. That’s my mum, she’ll give you the shirt off her back in a winter storm.
Problem? My mum doesn’t drive so she of course enlists me or my sister to do all her heavy lifting. I didn’t have time to drop the TV off needless to say. One night I had my mum in the car with me after I had taken her to Trader Joe and we passed her friend’s house. I turned to my mother and said “oh crap I forgot we had to drop that TV off to your friend!” she replied it wasn’t a problem at all but I still felt bad and told her, “Gosh what does she do without a TV? No news? What if the zombie plague hits?”
My mom, dead pan, turns to me and says, “What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her!”
I dunno but it cracked me up so hard. A dear little old lady, no TV, no way to watch the news, a possible outbreak of the plague, zombies wandering around her neighborhood and she doesn’t know it’s happening!
I seriously need to get that TV to her.
I’d feel bad if zombies ate her brains because of my negligence.
Anyway….utterly off topic but I hope it made you laugh as much as I did when my mom so seriously turned to me and said that!
Zombies, old ladies, and crazy as hell mothers aside how about a little look at some of the new shades of blush released with the Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.
Neons are HOT for the season but that doesn’t necessarily mean I can pull them off. I can’t do neon orange sadly or bright pinks, etc..I look like a clown when I try.
Those of you that can rock it, well, I’m jealous.
I think the good news is Bobbi took the trend and owned it by creating sheer shades for eyes and face and combined it with vibrant shades for lips. It does tone thing down considerably and makes the trend way easier to swallow for some of us.
If you’re wanting to indulge in bright shades of neon on lips you might want to keep things simple on cheeks. Two new, limited edition shades of blush from Bobbi Brown in Nude Pink and Nude Peach might just be on your list for a tame, subtle way to add a gentle flush to cheeks!
These are very sheer so if you’re fair of skin you might want to indulge since they’ll work best on such a skin type. I can get decent color pay off if I build color up and they happen to work great for me since I’m heavy handed. Shades are really delicate so just a touch of color is left behind. Darker skin types need not apply here as they won’t show up.
The joy of the blushes is the fact they work perfectly with the bright shades of lipstick Bobbi has available with her Neons and Nudes Collection. If you’re going to sport a vibrant lippie you definitely don’t want a loud blush to go along with it.
Nude Pink and Nude Peach are available for a limited time at Bobbi Brown or online at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com
