These are quickly becoming some of my favourite posts of the week. I find that I’m much happier and balanced when I’m able to take a look back at my week to see how I’ve honoured me. I think it’s so important (especially when the holidays are out of control!) to remember to do something special just for us.
This past week I treated myself with two of my most favourite things: makeup and wine.
I mean really, can it get any better?!
Thursday I went to Sephora on my lunch break with hopes of finding the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette in stock – and it was!! Yay!
I might have put on some eyeshadow while sitting at my desk…..Maybe…..
While there I also picked up some new foundation. During the summer I’m a tinted moisturizer (or, BB cream as they’re now called) but I was finding it just wasn’t giving me enough coverage in the winter, so I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Weightless Makeup (shade 3.5) and Ultra Definition Finishing Powder (for 2.0-4.0) and I freaking love them! The liquid makeup goes on really really smooth, it’s like spreading clouds on my face and the coverage is amazing without feeling thick of cakey.
I put makeup on for church on Sunday morning and had a nap Sunday afternoon and didn’t even need to touch my makeup, it still looked great!
Saturday evening I made plans to have a yummy dinner and drink wine. I find I acquire fancy bottles of wine, but never drink them because I feel like there needs to be an occasion to do so, so I made my own occasion and oh my! it was worth it!!
The wine was a 2003 Merlot and upon first sip I’m pretty sure I exclaimed, “I’ve never had anything like this before!”. It was totally worth cracking open.
The problem? Now I want to create more occasions to drink fancy wine 🙂
(It’s a good thing I have a bit of a wine collection!).
