Oh wow, 2011 has flown by so fast! I’ve started drafting my 2011 favorites post. A little early, maybe, but I want some time to look at all the things I’ve used this year to figure out my favorites!
On to my Ups and Downs!
MAC Honey Lust eyeshadow
This is a Lustre finish eyeshadow, which can be glittery and not smooth.
It works best with an eyeshadow base.
NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Yogurt
This is a taupey color and works great for work.
Finding a bra that fits well
A well-fitting bra is SO important, but I have a hard time finding something that I like. Ever since Uniqlo discontinued my favorite bra, I have been searching for something which fits me. I finally found it, even though it’s twice as expensive as the Uniqlo bras!
Having a fabulous, fabulous week at work.
A few weeks ago, I had the greatest week at work. The best part about working in China is that once people consider you to be family, they will do anything and everything for you.
I had a week which included
(1) having a heart to heart talk with someone I don’t work well with, and both of us promising to try harder to help each other,
(2) getting an unexpected text message from someone who was seriously worried about my health after seeing me at work,
(3) seeing someone grow their capability incredibly fast and being amazed at how much their leadership has grown,
(4) being invited to a family dinner.
Living in this country is pretty tough, but things like this remind me why I love working here.
MAC 129 brush
Maybe I just got a bad brush, but my 129 brush sheds EVERY SINGLE TIME I use it. It’s also prickly. My Sonia Kashuk blusher brush is much softer, doesn’t shed, and is less than 1/2 the price.
Ugh, the long cold winter here has started. The constant darkness and the cold, as well as bad insulation everywhere, make it a depressing time. Now I remember why I went to Hawaii last year!
I’m trying to find something new to include in my monthly favorites. Any suggestions?
