I said I would “diversify my portfolio” this year and after thinking about the best way to do this, I thought I would take a page out of Renee’s book (blog?) See the World in Pink and try doing the “Five on Friday” posts! If I can manage every Friday, that’s great, but even just one Friday a month is something I would be happy with maintaining. I am also hoping that because the nature of these posts is to find five random things in the week to chat about that it will help me to appreciate each day a little bit more! It also helps the weeks from blurring together and having me feel like I have reached the end of the month not knowing how I got there!
Last week wasn’t all that interesting mainly because my husband and I were home sick for most of it. With Omicron dominating and being highly infectious, my husband started having cold-like symptoms the middle of last week and then I started to have them the day after. The symptoms were really quite mild so we didn’t bother going to get tested as the line-ups have been hours long and it honestly makes more sense to just stay home for 5 days and get better. The health care workers manning these sites are stretched so thin as is that I think if you can afford to stay home for the week, DO IT. We had our groceries delivered and easily survived isolating in our home.
I picked up this ABH Norvina Pro Pigment Palette Vol.5 during their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale at I *think* 50% off which let’s face it, for ABH quality is an incredible price and just look at that palette! I was alerted to the sale via Jaime from Girl Loves Gloss and I honestly thought I wasn’t going to buy any more eyeshadow palettes, but I LOVE purple…I swatched each shade the other day and every single one was dreamy, creamy and pigmented. I don’t usually like mattes because most are pretty chalky in texture, but all of these ones were so smooth! That shade E3 made me “oooh” out loud as I swatched it as it literally swatched so fluidly alllmost like liquid! It was crazy! I have already used this palette a couple of times this week even just to play with on my days off so I think this will be THE purple eyeshadow palette for me!
I hope everyone had a good week and is doing well! Have you been able to check off any new books or movies yet?
