The 19 Makeup Products of 2019

I didn’t do it on purpose, but of all the makeup products that came out in 2019, I got 19. No more, no less. I couldn’t hit that number if I tried. My whole life is a pun.

To be clear, I got 19 makeup products that came out in 2019. I got other products as well, but those have been out of the closet for several years – it’s just that they came into my closet this year.

Shop & Tell: Sales & Steals

I love post-Christmas sales. ‘Tis the perfect time for retail therapy. The makeup sets that are already a good value to begin with get even more discounted and it’s my goddamn kryptonite – and I was rushing to get this post out because these products are still all available and all on sale.

Checkered Trousers & a Chic Tote

Stop the freaking press, I’m wearing jogging pants.

Have I changed the way I dress? Nop, I was trekking through plants.

In comfortable slacks, but like I vowed: sneakers were still not allowed.

I’ll stop the rhymes and wait for the applause.

(I’m the cheesiest b*tch there ever was…)

3rd Day in Istanbul – Old Palaces and Ancient Places

Third day in Istanbul, and we woke up with a sense of urgency – there was still so much to see. Getting lost in the city was not an option this day. We headed for Topkapi Palace, aware that it was a time consuming experience, and considering skipping lunch altogether.

A kiosk on a street corner, across the street from the entry road that leads to Topkapi Palace, that we passed by almost every day. It became a reference point and a token image of Istanbul for me.

Plethora of Powder – A collection review

This is like winter: it was coming, but took a damn long time. I took this photo back in October of last year, and I’ve since actually finished some of these powders, so this isn’t my current collection per se, but it’ll still be useful for the mini-review for any of you powder-review-wondering souls.

And due to my current Project 10 Pan, the collection hasn’t grown more than this. Yey me. Yeah…

Well-

Ok, I have gotten one powder foundation since this picture was taken that I justified to myself was ok because it was a foundation, not a powder even though I use it as a powder so it doesn’t count. Technically. Right?

Now for the breakdown (favourites are marked with a ♥):

Hidden Prints, Herringbone and High Boots

Just another winter Sunday. We went to Dear Breakfast again, and I would tell you that I’m always excited to go there because the food is great, which it is, but I would be lying. I’m excited ’cause of Mary. They serve Bloody Mary’s with brunch.

Anyway, it was an excuse to bust out these boho, non-office appropriate over-the-knee boots.
