How is your weekend going, darlings? We have heavy snowfall, my little garden is covered in five inches of snow. It's beautiful. I went shopping this morning and snow started falling in the afternoon. It was really cold and the city was busy beyond words. I don't really like the crowd that comes along with Xmas, however, I felt relaxed and great, which is quite unusual as I have dealt with anxiety for the last couple of months. It's still manageable and I don't need medication, I am just overstressed and burn it at both ends for too long of a time and my body is revolting. However, I don't feel well and struggle with insomnia, too. As I sat in my car struck in a traffic jam and looked at the wonderful, sparkling, all-white blanket of snow, I felt that I finally got into the Xmas spirit, which I had thought won't come this year. Oh, I love the silence that comes when it snows.
I had dinner with a friend in IKEA and over some Swedish meatballs we talked about Xmas, love life, work and my relatively new obsession, blogging.
Me: "Oh I have to update my blog tonight and tell my readers about the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit I have just bought for myself as an Xmas present. You know, there are these people who get mad if I don't post..."
Her: "Who are these people? Are they real people?" Ha-ha-ha.
I went to Douglas to buy some presents for my family and just hung a wee bit too long around the Bobbi Brown counter and a lovely makeup artist asked if she could help me. I have used the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit for a long time now and I needed a new one, so I told her what I wanted. I wore no makeup, so she kindly offered me to try a few products on my face and I left in full makeup and with a few good tips. She made my day. I bought the concealer kit in Ivory and, as she suggested, a corrector in Porcelain Bisque that, put under the concealer, covers my dark circles. I gifted myself with a Moleskine Memo Pocket organizer book with six accordion file style compartments, too, which makes the perfect portable file folder for my bills and notes. Do you gift yourselves sometimes? I know it's not the solution, but it really helps fighting sorrow.
That's it for now. Good night, darlings.
