I feel much better, thanks in equal parts to Percocet and this text that I received yesterday from my coworker/friend:
One should never underestimate the healing powers of the knowledge that new makeup is waiting for you at your workplace. Now I had something to live for.
Thankfully I am also legitimately feeling a lot better, so it wasn't too hard to convince myself to pull it together and get to work today. And as a reward for my efforts, I went straight to the mail room and picked up my package as soon as I got here!

You're probably (not) wondering why I'm cheating on Ulta and Sephora and ordering directly from Tarte, aren't you. Well, I'll tell you. I went to Ulta twice looking to buy this foundation brush and both times it was out of stock. That was irritating. So I resigned myself to buying it online. Then I did some quick makeup math involving coupon codes, free shipping thresholds, free sample options, and voodoo magic, which resulted in discovering that ordering from Tarte was a better deal (this time) than from either of the stores. And as it turns out, I placed this order on Monday afternoon and it arrived Thursday afternoon. You can't beat that for free shipping speediness-- nicely done, Tarte!!
If you've noticed a recurring theme in my makeup purchases lately (you haven't? Don't worry, my AmEx has...), you may correctly conclude that I am obsessed with Tarte. It is definitely my current favorite brand. For one, almost everything I've used of theirs is fabulous. And then as an added bonus, all of their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, and synthetic fragrances...so that is an EXTRA huge win!! Cost wise, they're comparable to all the other mid-upper range product lines (benefit, Smashbox, Bare Minerals, Lorac, etc.), so...it's true love.
Speaking of true love: you people LOVE you some 90210, don't you?? I was definitely surprised to see so many of you choosing that as your fantasy high school experience yesterday! I'm going to be very honest here: I have never seen an episode of Beverly Hills 90210. Not even one. I'm so ashamed. I can't even relate to what yall are talking about!!! I hope you'll cut me some slack- it's not my fault...my parents were very particular about what we were allowed to watch on TV back then, and shockingly...90210 didn't make the cut. By the time I was old enough to make my own decisions about TV viewing (cough*college*cough), no one was watching that, so...I never caught up. I hope we can still be friends. I would say that I plan on watching it some day, but that'd be pretty much lying. I'm just not inspired by early 90s clothing, hair, and drama, and I have no nostalgia attached to the characters, so...I'll probably never be bored enough to watch it. :)
Alright, well...we've covered makeup and TV, so that's basically the extent of my passions these days...guess we're all done here! Have a wonderful weekend!
