On my left is a pile of press releases waiting to be written about; on my right are work-related things anticipating my complete attention; and inside this wonderful technology are emails from everyone who’s everyone. Yet instead of doing any of those three, I’m browsing Nordstrom coupon codes, among many others, and making an imaginary shopping bag filled with things I (perhaps) don’t need but (genuinely) do want… for my birthday maybe?
It’s almost here; I’m almost 25! One of my favorite traditions when we can finally smell October again is to list anything – this is the time I usually go all out – I want to get for myself as I turn another year older. Because right after passive investment dues, insurance for everything and other #grownupproblems, I suppose warranted that final click on the checkout button.
In that vein, let me channel that celebrant’s aura tonight with some picks that go well with, hmmm, midlife crisis? And how they will really up my last stretch of 2014 game.
NuMe Titan 3 and Silhoutte – absolute necessities now that I have a cut I haven’t worn since 5th grade, and the site always runs flash sale moments that I need to seize. // Lancome Cils Booster – I just discovered the impact of fiber primers and this seems to be the favorite of majority. The question is: who wouldn’t go for the extra centimeter (of lashes)? // Foreo Luna Mini – these silicone minis are looking as splendid as they can be and I have a feeling that the results they give are equally so. // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette – other than “I could get lost in those swirls,” this doesn’t need any intros. // Glamglow Clearing Treatment – this replicates a professional facial with just a quick application and waiting time, and I have warm and fuzzies towards anything clearing. // Lipstick Queen Sinner (actual shade is not decided yet) – Holy hot bullet of lipstick. The secret? The brand is called “queen” for a lot of good reasons. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 2014 Collection (especially Prague, Copenhagen, and Transylvania) – dark, bold, and dangerous. Not really how I describe myself in three words but I love the sound of those on my lips. Lang Leav’s Love & Misadventure and Lullabies – signed copies please, thank you very much.
My family and friends, especially my mom, would gasp in horror once they saw another makeup item on my wishlist. But a
girl can dream woman can hustle (uy, mature!) to have her hands on every beauty products, shoes, or the world she desires! For the meantime let’s (meaning us thriving 20-somethings) start scouting websites for the best promotions and deals. Thank you Internet gods for making coupons a thing of the 21st century!
