Purchases without Guilt

LipstickI just got home from a little frugal shopping. I found some great things at the shops. I purchased a Physician Formula Color Eyes Cream Eye Shadow Stick in Champagne. It’s a really beautiful beige. It’s silky smooth and hypoallergenic. I also bought a small eyeshadow palate from LA Colors. It has a whole bunch of pastel colors. I also bought Maybelline Mineral Power powder foundation which i LOVE, LOVE so much. Finally, I bought a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm that I’ve been wanting to try. The whole point of my shopping excursion was to buy a brush holder and cosmetic bag. But no guilt here because I didn’t spend a lot. Here’s my latest article on ehow. Check it out.

The Reader

I am currently reading “The Reader” by Bernhard Schlink. It really is a great book. As soon as you start reading it, you are completely engrossed in the story. What books are you reading? Any recommendations?
