A lot of things are on my mind lately, mostly good. I've been battling a bug for the majority of this week, so I have had plenty of time to think. It's been nice actually (aside from the feeling terrible part). I've been sitting in my pajamas all day and drinking nothing but water and ginger ale. Isolation can do funny things to people, but as an only child, solitude is a pleasure for me. Another year is winding to an end, and it's my typical MO to get a little introspective about things...or not! Don't worry, I'm not getting all serious on you. This is still the land of frivolity. While I'm on the mend from whatever this cold or flu is, I'll leave you with some things that I wanted to mention last week.
1) Sheet Masks
See, I told you this wouldn't be deep.
I've been seeing this beauty trend all over snapchat, and when I walked into my Sephora a couple of weeks ago, lo and behold right smack in the front entrance was a big display of sheet masks from different brands. I decided to give these two a go, without really knowing anything about them. I must say, although I'm old fashioned and prefer my face covered in green clay rather than say...snail mucin, I really love both of these! They both made my skin look brighter and more refreshed after, and I like the easy application and clean-up. Simply throw away the mask and don't rinse your face. Rub the leftover gel into your skin and it continues to do its magic. My only gripe is that these masks are wasteful since you can't re-use them. I don't know how often I'll be purchasing, although this leads me to my next thing.
2) Sephora VIB sale (November 13th - November 16th)
Not to be confused with the sale that just happened, I will be participating in this one and plan on just placing a small order online. I'll share what I get once the goods arrive, but so far my list includes another tube of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Did you ladies get anything?
3) My blog is getting a new look!
Yes, for the third time. But I'm very excited about this one because I just think it's ready for an upgrade. I love working with a blog designer. It's kind of like planning your wedding, but much less stressful! I do have a few things in mind, but I'm also going to be much more open about fonts and colors. I just want to make sure that as usual, it is easy to navigate and user friendly. I'm a tech dummy, so when I see a blog that looks like it needs an instruction manual, forget it. We begin working the first week of December so I hope to have it done by the new year :)
4) Last not but not least for this random post is that I've decided to become a Stella & Dot stylist!
I can't really believe it either. I've been a huge fan of the company and their jewelry since they began, and my fellow stylist has encouraged me to get involved for a couple of years now. I never really saw it as a fit, but she's finally convinced me to dive in. I'm spending most of the weekend getting started and trying to get situated, but I would really appreciate your support if you ladies need any pretty jewels in the future. I'm your girl!
You can shop here or just type in Noelle Engel under "Find your hostess".
Enough about me, what's on your mind these days?
