I saw this glass at a local gift shop and nearly short circuited in the middle of the store!
If you know, you know.
So, I know I’ve been quiet this week. Beyond the usual last-minute Christmas stuff that one deals with at this time (wrapping, gift hunting, card writing and feeding all the humans in your immediate orbit because everyone is so hungry ALL THE TIME), I’ve also been fighting a cold and dealing with lots of paperwork because, drumroll please, I’m starting a new job in January.
*Insert happy dance here.*
Seriously, the relief of having a steady gig is the best Christmas present ever!
I’ll be working at a college doing a mix of marketing, editing, writing and administrative duties, which include interacting with students and professors (I almost wrote “purr-fessors,” ha). I’ll get to work with the public, which I think takes advantage of social skills I’ve always had but haven’t really used since I’ve been freelance writing from home. Anywho, it’s close to Connor’s school, the hours are great for a working mom, and the benefits are insanely good.
THE BENEFITS, omg. Retirement! Healthcare coverage! Union membership! Paid time off!
I almost cried when I read about them, for real.
Side note, you know you’ve crossed a bridge when benefits excite you. LOL!
Anywho, I can safely say — I’m really, really happy. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to say that, but I am.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk, ha ha ha. 🙂
All this rambling to lead up to today’s lip of the day!
It’s a vivid yellow pink that reads more as a bright red on my lips, Laura Mercier Louise, another beauty from her twist-up line of soft matte lip pencils.
I think it’s a fun and festive color. Give it a swatch if you happen to be at a Laura Mercier counter.
Before I head out, I have to share this song with you because it’s been stuck in my head all week long. It’s “Black and Gold” by Sam Sparro, and the senior competitive dance team at Connor’s studio is dancing to it.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Are ya done with all your holiday shopping and wrapping?
