What I'm Loving...

Is it me, or is this the "weird" part of summer? No holidays for awhile, no September magazines, fall TV, or football yet. It's just kind of - nothing. Just me? That's always a possibility.
Here's what I'm loving:

MAC Girl About Town Lipstick
I decided that a bright lipstick would be the perfect way to spice up, well, almost everything and I was right. I went with MAC's Girl About Town and I love how easy to wear it is. You'd think something that looks so bright pink the tube wouldn't work so well, but it does. You can go full out, apply it lightly like a stain, or put whatever color gloss you want over it to change the color. Endless possibilities!

Kate Spade Twirl
I tried a sample of this recently and there's something about it that's very familiar. It must remind me of some other perfume but I can't figure out which one. Either way, I like it and I'm thinking the bottle would be pretty gorgeous on my vanity.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
This has been on my wish list for awhile, so I jumped at the chance to get a sample of it with my last Sephora order. Another one of the millions of reasons I love Sephora - the samples are good enough sized that you can usually try something more than once, giving you a perfect idea of whether or not you want to purchase the full sized product. And I do. Not a surprise.

South - Nine Lives
You talk about forgiveness
I've yet to find the meaning
I miss you at the best of times
You help me walk that fine line
I've loved this song for years and was very frustrated that it had never gone on iTunes. So I decided I loved it enough that I ordered the CD. A CD. What year is this again? Definitely worth the purchase, but now I'm having a crisis over realizing we have hundreds of CDs and they're likely never coming back. I need to sell them or something, right? Or have I missed the boat on that? I'm always late to the party. 

Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I was in Ulta tonight with that primer staring me right in the eye...then came home and saw this. Hmmmm

And to think: the entire time I was in there I kept thinking of you. Psychic connection. haha!

I'm into bold, bold lipstick right now too! My friend always rocks it and she looks amazing.

I've been eyeing girl about town for ages but I'm just enver sure I've get enough wear out of it :)
& I know what you mean about this time of summer being a bit inbetween!! X

I'm a lucky one. Right now there are about 7 shows on TV that are off-season entries that I love so I am recording away so I don't miss one. With the weather being so hot, I'm glad to stay inside at night and watch my shows.

The Kate spade perfume sounds like it'd be worth a try. Long hours have me thinking of vacation soon. Good thing I'm taking off for my anniversary in a few weeks!

This is definitely the weird time of summer...or, as I call it, the boring time. Love that lipstick color...and I've been wanting to try that Urban Decay primer for a while.

Agreed, it's the weird middle part of summer, past the Fourth of July but too soon to look forward to fall.

The UD Primer is amazing, I cannot get on without it!

The Kate Spade Twirl bottle is so pretty! I have the last fragrance she did and love it. I'm hoping I get a sample in my birchbox...it's been featured on their website quite a bit.

And yes, it's the weird part of summer...And for me it feels like July is quickly melting into August...I'm getting mad at stores for already publishing back to school deals.

I feel the same way about this stretch of summer-I just want Christmas to roll around already! But I absolutely love that lip color-any excuse to stay bright!


That Mac shade is perfect... I'm loving pinks too.

Also loving Dalmation print coats... but maybe that's just me :)

Yes, it's definitely the "weird" part of summer--it's too hot to enjoy the outdoors, and as August looms closer all I can think about is how summer (for me) is close to being over! I love that pink lip color--I have been wanting to try a bright pink on my lips but haven't been brave enough to do anything but a gloss.
