Are you ready for a life changing tip? Seriously, get ready: Hanky Panky. Oh my good Lord is this underwear ever amazing! It's literally like slipping on a pair of clouds (at least as cloud-like as thongs can feel). I discovered them in Toronto, when I was up there earlier this year, and since they are a bit of an investment ($18/pair), I bought only 2 pairs. Well, I found myself getting depressed whenever I had to wear my other thongs, so I bought some more (2 more). It's not enough. I need more. I refuse to let any other underwear near my whooha... It's the little things that matter right ladies? I've told a few of my close friends about this find of mine... One actually stole a pair "by accident" on her recent visit. I'm still angry at her. But I actually can't blame her... I mean we're close, but underwear stealing close isn't really an area we've ventured into; until Hanky Panky was brought to the table. The results are in, and every lady has the same reaction: "life changing".
As for the makeup/beauty routines I've been drawn to... It's all about the matte bright red and pink lips for me! Behold some inspiration:
This look is not for the shy "don't look at me" type. This look gets attention, and deservedly so. I've always thought that I look like a bit of a blow-up doll with red lips; however, I have discovered that if I keep them matte, and not glossy, it works for me. I tend to go big on lashes, and bronzed skin, but that's it when I sport a bright lip. I've also been skipping the lipstick, and using only lip pencils to fill in my lips for better staying power, no cakey-ness and a distinct matte finish.
In preggo beauty news... I'm almost 33 weeks people!!! Eeeeeek! We had our prenatal classes the last couple of weeks and they kinda freaked me out a bit, however I'm still oddly mellow about it all. Our nursery is looking amazeballs... I'm so into it; very glamorous and mid-century modern. The lil' Jujube has more expensive furniture than us, literally. I noticed a couple of things in the preggo videos we had to watch.... Clearly there is a lot of pain involved (and sweating?), and the whole thing is overall the opposite of glamorous; but then there's the predicament of having a million photos that will be taken right after pushing that baby out, and you're at your peak haggardness... What's a beauty minded girl to do? I think I may just get lash extensions a couple of weeks before the expected delivery... At least I won't look too much like a 12 year old, sweaty boy then? Oh "pregnant girl problems".
What the hey ho is going on with Jessica Simpson? That's my question of the day...
