Hello everyone. It is officially the last Sunday of October. As we fly into Fall, I can only think about the work week ahead. I've garnered a fondness for multitasking and am now discovering this to be one of my strongest virtues. Perhaps, I have no choice other than to work on multiple things at once, as that is the only way to get the job done.
Today I decided to do my basic home chores in the early morning (cleaning, laundry, etc.) before making my way to grocery market to buy a few things. Recently, I am really loving Albertsons. Not only do they have a great selection of produce and cheese, but vegetarian alternatives, including some of my personal favorites. I also love the customer service there too.
I saw a bunch of fresh red bananas and the sales associate was so kind of ask if I wanted to try one. I had tried them before and although they are good, they fail in comparison to match the traditional yellow. And it seems like every single time I inquire about something in the store, I am always offered a sample. I literally would love to go to every Albertson's store in the United States and review them each individually.
I'm rambling, I know.
Anyways, today, I decided to not do full glam, but embrace more of a natural yet wearable look. Although my makeup is visible, as you can see from today's photo, I wanted to just enhance my features. For today's selfie, I used the following makeup products:
Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Face Primer, PUR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation in the shade Blush Medium, KKW Beauty Liquid Concealer in the shade 7 and the Kevyn Aucoin 'The Contour Book' Volume II. (Face)
Smashbox Cosmetics 24 Hour Shadow Primer in the shade Barely-There Sheer, By Terry Eye Designer Palette in 1 Smoky Nude, Motives Waterproof Eye Pencil in the shade Black Magic, Chantecaille Luster Glide Silk Eyeliner in the shade Slate, and Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara in Black. (Eyes)
Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil in the shade 5. (Brows)
Motives Lip Crayon in the shade Dusty Rose and Motives Maven Matte Lipstick in the shade Reveal Me. (Lips)
Other beauty items I am loving and have used today also include: Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser, Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil, POND'S Luminous Clean MoistureClean Towlettes, PMD Personal Microderm Pro, Herbal Essences Coconut Milk Shampoo, Herbal Essences Coconut Milk Conditioner, Pacifica Beauty Indian Coconut Nectar Hair & Body Mist, Pacifica Beauty Coconut Milk & Pineapple Underarm Deodorant Wipes and Tom's of Maine Clean Mint Luminous White Toothpaste. I have more to add, but I will save it for another blog post.
And in case you are wondering where my dress (although you cannot see much of it) is from, it is from Hot Miami Styles.
Additionally, I am really loving and appreciating the Bhagavad Gita. In case you are wondering what it is a Hindu scripture written by Lord Krishna. It is quite possibly one of the most inspiring texts I have read. It is modestly complex, as the translation is in old English. I've read it multiple times and find myself still looking at it when I can. Needless to say, I am quite inspired.
I hope you are having a wonderful day. As much as I am contemplating and debating whether I want to go to the gym and workout for a few, I've decided that I want to take a nice relaxing bath and catch up on some much needed sleep. Today is national chocolate day, so I may take serious advantage.
Have an amazing day!
