1 – I made so.much. strawberry jam last weekend. We won’t have to buy and/or make jam or jelly for a very long time! Most of the strawberries were local, but I did have to buy a couple pints from the grocery store to finish out the second batch. Before Will and I were married, I didn’t like strawberry jam. It’s his favorite, and now I like it, too.
2 – One should always match one’s kitchen, am I right?
3 – I finally (finally!) got my hands on some of the Rimmel Apocalips. I’ve heard about them from nearly all the UK beauty bloggers/Youtubers and I’ve been wanting to try them pretty darn bad. I got Big Bang, Luna, and Celestial. I might go back for Stellar . . .that one was pretty, too!
4 – TheBalm Cosmetics was on Hautelook last month, and I snagged the Hot Mama blush and the Mary Lou-manizer highlighter. I haven’t “dug” into them yet, because (1) I’m still working through my Hot Mama sample I got through Birchbox and (2) I want to photograph the Mary Lou-manizer unused so I can write a post about it. It’s so pretty in the pan, I know I’m going to love it.
5 – Ahhh, this week was a hard week. Our daughter had her tonsils and adenoids removed and also had ear tubes put back in. It’s been a rough, rough week and it’s going to stay rough until the end of the next week, when she should be fully recovered.
Today, I’m linking up with The Lauren Elizabeth for High Five for Friday
