I received something very special in the mail today.
It was a gift from Kelly of Whimsy Beading of a beautiful bracelet that she handmade. (She has more lovely bracelets in this style here.)
It’s seriously beautiful. I need to wear it with a slinky black dress, and commission a choker to coordinate with it.
Next in the mail came my sample order from Concrete Minerals. I did their purchase 5 samples for $4.99 and they also threw in 2 extra samples for free. Shipping was only $1.99, which is pretty reasonable.Seance – deep purple with lavender sheenZealous – vibrant turquoiseJuvenile – acid green with turquoise sparkleKismet – bright pink with gold undertonesPrude – pale shimmery pinkMad Hatter – dramatic reddish-purple with green sparkleBang-Up – electric blue with gold sparkle
*Mad Hatter & Bang-Up were free shadesI’m particularly interested in trying Juvenile, to see how well the turquoise sparkle shows up.
Last, after I went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D, I stopped by Ulta.This is what I picked up:Piggy Polish Beach Break – reddish fuschia with multi-color sparklePhysicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder Foundation in Translucent LightMs Mancire 3 mini salon boards
I’ve really been dying to try this powder because of the fact that it’s SPF 50. I first saw the lovely Blix with it and that piqued my interest, so I want to try it.
