Illusion d'Ombre is my makeup kryptonite (alongside Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks). When I hear about a new release, my heart pounds faster. I feel restless about not having it in my hands now. Right now!
Having to drastically switch time zones (12 hours difference!) plus suffering from insomnia really messed up my body clock. It's been almost 4 months and I still have not adjusted - this means staying up long hours and waking up so late that I'm lucky if I can even go out to run an errand each day.
On the bright side, I was forced to master the art of getting ready in a jiffy. That's about 20 minutes to shower, apply skincare & makeup. Here are the products I use when I don't have the luxury of time.
Is it too late to wish you all a happy new year? :) Hello, by the way! How is everyone?
I feel like I owe you all who are *still* reading this blog an explanation for my absence. A lot of things have happened since the start of 2013 that turned life upside down. A few happy things. A lot of unexpected, some very disappointing events. Recently, a major change that has forced me out of my comfort zone. I wish I could tell you everything but I am not comfortable writing these details in such a public space. Maybe over a cup of tea instead? :)
One of the reasons for my temporary withdrawal from blogging was that I
had two terminally ill senior cats who needed all the attention and care
we could provide to make their remaining days comfortable. We wanted
them to feel loved. I already wrote an entry about Portia. It's Robbie's turn now.
