there’s quite a bit of ignorance and stigma surrounding this topic. i admit, when i heard christina applegate did this a while back, i thought “well, that seems extreme.” i was ignorant. i needed to be educated on the topic. between my work in healthcare and the article, i’ve learned a lot.
when angelina began to ~change~ a few years ago, i rolled my eyes countless times. but now i’m coming around. that article will do so much good to destigmatize a preventative procedure such as hers. this is using her celebrity for good.
the floodgates are open. let’s play shana’s favorites.
this under-eye concealer, man. it blends into my skin like a dream. doesn’t look racoony or cakey or add ten years to my age (ladies, you know what i mean). can’t recommend enough.
this mascara. i LOVE it. the problem i have with most mascaras that other ladies love is their formulas are all too goopy/clumpy. i like a thinner formula to layer. prior to this mascara i only used maybelline full n soft, but for some reason the last 2 or 3 tubes i bought were dry and old or something. this rimmel stuff is amazing. DON’T buy the covergirl tube that looks almost identical. girl they are not. fyi this mascara costs something like 10.99 at ulta, and ~4 dollars at target.
i don’t own this frother. it’s a hundred dollars. i’m hoping i can cheat the system and somehow find it on sale for 70 percent off at some point. they have one at work and you just pour in milk (skim, even) and in 30 seconds it silently froths into gorgeous foam. like, wall of foam foam. at work it’s attached to a nespresso machine but i can’t even bring myself to price those out.
you know apple bottom jeans? well this is the apple middle tank. because some of us apple shapes need a little room to breathe. and every other workout tank in the world is skintight. BOTHERSOME. these bubble tanks from old navy are the greatest. just wear a sports bra underneath that you’re not ashamed of (i may or may not have a couple left over from HIGH SCHOOL) because these tops are loose, obviously. but they are just inexpensive and cute and blouse out and hide that willful apple shape of mine.
i honestly don’t know why i’ve been away so long. but some good stuff has happened in my life.
i’m getting married next year!
alan the hand model:
it looks better on alan’s hairy hand than mine. damn his golden skintone. those are sapphires in the halo, and we chose moissanite for the center, because we didn’t want a diamond. but i did like the look of a colorless stone in the middle.
and i got a new job.
sadly my new job is not to eat donuts and drink iced coffee on my front porch, but that’s why i did every day in the week between my old job and my new job. it was a blissful time. but i’m so much happier at my new job. it’s at a small office, as opposed to the giantest office in a network of giant global offices.
let’s relax that arm, and just stand the way we stand 100% of the time otherwise. the flesh on that arm will lightly press against our torso, and we’ll all survive, and we won’t look obese, and the world will keep spinning, and it will be glorious.
alan finally confirmed with our upstairs neighbor that they do indeed have their own washer and dryer. we figured as much because none of our neighbors are ever, ever in the creepy basement laundry room. i won’t even describe my intense jealousy but i will say that i dreamed about my neighbor’s luxurious apartment last night. it had a fountain inside.
