Thursday Things 11.08.12

It’s 90+ degrees here in Scottsdale, AZ and I have given up resisting the urge to celebrate my favorite time of year.  Sweaters and boots?  Check.  Pumpkin everything?  Check.  Fall lips?

This was my first drugstore-lipstick purchase.  Except it’s not lipstick at all, it’s lip stain.  Even better.  See, I have massive lips (obviously, because they’re in your face) and feel that lipstick or lip gloss just accentuate how big they truly are.  I just think it’s a bit much for an everyday look.  I also HATE that tacky, sticky, slimy texture on my lips (that’s what she said).  Lip stain is the perfect solution because I still have the color but can just apply my Burt’s Bees and the color stays on.  I have searched and searched and can NEVER find the perfect lip stain.  My lips are pretty much a billboard on my face and if there is any streaking or weird coloration, that normally happens with lip stain, everyone will know and see it.  I’m obsessed with this lip stain and plan on stocking up on more colors.  This color is called “Midnight” and is darker in person and more of a Bordeaux color.

My favorite Pandora station is, naturally, old school hip hop.  I can’t get enough.  I was listening to old school Tupac while walking around campus today and MAY or may not have been rapping every single verse.

My favorite way to drink apple cider is WARM in a big mug.  I drink only a cup a day (talk about self-control) because it is so sugar laden.  It’s worth every sip and mile on the treadmill.

One thing you can be sure of is that I will never talk about politics on here.  I just believe that when it comes to politics and religion, it is best to keep it to yourself.  If someone wants to hear your opinion, they will ask.

I’ve been enjoying this tasty treat.  Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk Yogurt and Laughing Giraffe’s vanilla-almond “Snakaroon.”  The snakaroons are raw-vegan and they are SO ridiculously good.  You can find them at Whole Foods.

Well, if that is not the most random post I have written, yet….

I hope everyone has an amazing day.  Mine will be spent indoors, unfortunately, bogged down in massive amounts of studying and homework.

Question: Do you feel political views should be shared publicly?
