This week was a blur of “Midnight in Paris” and junk food. Pretty standard material for whenever Boyfriend is out of town on business. There’s no one to tell me to eat real food or like, get off the couch. I had a lot of uninterrupted time at home to pull together this week’s Friday Five, and for what I think is only the second or third time since I’ve been doing these, I actually had to pare it down from a longer list of stuff. I love it when that happens. My wallet on the other hand…
Herewith, this week’s Friday Five.
I went on a spree at Sephora earlier this week, picking up a bunch of things including a new container of moisturizer I ended up returning because I found an unopened one in my closet when I got home (woops), and this lip gloss by Fresh. Lauren is always raving about this stuff and I finally took the plunge. I don’t know what I was waiting for, I am completely in love with it. It’s not waxy or sticky and the color is perfect. Bonus: it’s spf 15. While I was there, I oggled this brush set even though I don’t have a need for it, because the colors are just beautiful. All that inky blue and iridescent teal. The brushes are a limited edition collaboration between Sephora and Pantone, so it makes sense they are so visually stunning. I’m debating buying them just to keep them on display for added prettiness.
I’ve been trying to decorate more thoughtfully, so I stuck all my makeup brushes and tweezers and stuff in a small mason jar and left it on the counter. I think it would be neat to put my other makeup (this primer, mascara, and blush) in a decorative bowl rather than keep it in my makeup bag. Knowing me, my minimalist streak will kick in and I’ll eventually find the whole thing too cluttered for my taste, but this paper mache bowl is gorgeous, don’t you think? The gold lining will add a little bit of glam to the bathroom.
And speaking of glam, ever since I saw this scarf on Annie, I’ve sort of been drooling over it. I know, I know, crazy scarf lady is in full effect, but come on. It’s fabulous. It’s McQueen. It’s gothic and sexy and yes, okay, overpriced. Yeah, admittedly I’ll probably be too creeped out by the skulls to wear it without shivering but I don’t care. The hear wants what it wants.
My love for Gary Oldman is persistant (evidence here and here) and was at one time all-encompassing. Then he had to go off and get married and crush all of my dreams, so I’m not nearly as obsessed with him as I was after “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” came out when he was Sirius Black and was shirtless in that one scene and had long hair and then I Netflix’ed his entire catalog of work. That was an amazing three weeks. All I did was watch Gary Oldman movies. So when I saw this video spoof he made for Jimmy Kimmel Live a few days ago, well, my little heart went all aflutter:
How adorable is he? Answer: very.
What are you guys up to this weekend? I’m happy to report I have NOTHING going on. Boyfriend got promoted at his review yesterday to Senior Vice President, so some celebratory drinks are in order (obviously he will be treating). It’s supposed to be hot out, so I forsee a lot of couch surfing in the air conditioning and general loafing around. Bliss.
