$25 Sephora Gift Card Giveaway

Congrats to Monica for winning this giveaway!

Happy Weekend!  Wahooo!  Everyone spin in circles.  Now fall on the floor!  Throw your hands up in the air! Stop. Take it all in.

Ah. Feels good right?

I’m looking forward to the weekend. It’s cold here but I don’t mind. I think I’m going to take in Amour tonight at the Jacob Burns Film Center with some friends, grab some great pizza around the corner from the theater (they have a killer slice a little walk from the theater if you’re in the area, small place but good pizza!). I wanted to see Barbara but unfortunately it starts at 5PM and I’ll never make it to the theater in time (I close my office at 5 and really can’t leave early today).

Speaking of movies, I can’t wait for Sony to tap Austenland worldwide. I loved the book and look forward to the film.

What’s your weekend like?

Mine is unplanned aside from tonight so I’m looking into my options.

For now you can start your weekend by celebrating with a Sephora Gift Card, brought to you, by yours truly.

NARS Torrid Blush Review & Swatches

NARS Torrid Blush

I just picked up NARS Blush in Torrid a month or two ago. Although I have yet to do so yet, I’m really on a mission to own every NARS Blush shade in the known universe.

There blushes are pricey but well worth owning as they apply easily, have the best pigment, and wear all damn day. That last part is super important to me.

Being obsessed with peaches and particularly consumed with the way NARS does them I picked up Torrid.

Here are some thoughts!
