Before I get this blog post started let me just say Z. is missing her 3rd class in a row with Miss Lisa because although we are back in town she caught a minor stomach bug. Ugh. Every time we go to NY to visit my family she gets a stomach bug. Next time I am putting her in a HazMat suit before we enter the rest area. Yup, dipping her in a container of antibacterial sauce with an air mask to boot.
OK onto a few things I am loving right now.
The first is my Flip that I got for my birthday. Yes we have a video camera but it’s old, and big and well rarely sees the light of day. My Flip is the perfect purse-sized mamarazzi accessory. Singing in the car, capture it on the flip. JT going across the monkey bars for the first time, captured. I love this little affordable gem. The downsides are the charger is sort of cheesy (and sold separately) but I am glad I got it anyway. Also if you shake a lot your videos will shake a lot, the Flip doesn’t have the image stabilization that other video camera (which cost 5x as much) have.
When it comes to make-up I think I am not a brand loyal person and use what looks good on me. Lately I have been obsessed with the new Bare Essentuals 100% natural lip glosses and their new super awesome “Flawless” mascara. I like glosses because lipstick always ends up on my teeth. Seriously, I look like a fool a work. I find the result isn’t the same with these glosses. These go on great, provide some nice color and some shine/sparkle without so much you look like you borrowed Barbie’s lip gloss kit from your 4 year old. However, it’s the mascara that’s my obsession. I love the brush and the natural look of this one. It’s easy to apply, doesn’t clump and lasts all day. When you are running late a little gloss and mascara can make even jeans and a t-shirt look pulled together.
