50 Words or Less: Things I've Been Enjoying Recently

Monday, May 11, 2020

So these are unusual times, I think it would be an egregious move to pretend that things are fine and dandy when they're not. COVID-19 is claiming the lives of people all around the world, small businesses are taking huge hits, and plenty of folks are dealing with furlough or being laid off altogether. 

Part of me feels like talking about beauty is the most frivolous, totally out of touch. Another part of me wants to push forward, because letting go of interests and passions feels like conceding. I don't quite know how to reconcile those two sides, so I'm gonna to continue to post but also acknowledge what's going on right now and the difficulties people are facing. For the time being, that feels somewhat acceptable. 

Today's post is a collection of items I've been using, some of these things for as long as eight months. I'll keep it brief.

Monday, May 4, 2020

In December of last year, I managed to get my hands on a palette that I had been coveting for months and months. About once a week I would take a peep at the Pat McGrath website, hoping to see the Decadence MOTHERSHIP in stock, courting disappointment every time. When Mother announced a collaboration with Star Wars that included a re-promote of Decadence in shiny Star Wars gold packaging, I set my alarm and was pleased as punch that I managed to check out successfully.
