A regular 24 hour period for me is chocked full of bad timing. Taking just today for an example:
- I had graduate photo, right? Well. I have skin that goes berserk if I put anything delicious in my mouth so I have been prepping all week by avoiding bad things and drinking ridiculous amounts of water. I tell you – my skin was glowing this morning as I happily headed to my photo shoot. However, as I was paying for my parking pass at the university, I was stung by an insect right in the middle of my face. I called my mother (for whom the photos are largely for) and I morosely listened to about three minutes of hysterical laughter. I just want to get this graduating thing over, since I am clearly not navigating it with style nor grace.
-After a long run, I was stretching on the pool deck. I was doing an ambitious back bend for someone with my level of flexibility when someone pulled in our driveway. I quickly snapped to attention, but a little too quickly because I tweaked a back muscle and proceeded to spend the rest of the evening wandering around the house with a bag of frozen corn on my lower right hip.
- Tonight, I was having a leisurely dip in the hot tub with my youngest sister. I was undoubtedly imparting wisdom to her when suddenly and without warning, the hot tub cover launched itself from its post and slammed down on my head, causing me to go from sitting vertically to being underwater horizontally in 0.2 seconds. As I come up sputtering, my sister was turning purple and not making any noise. I was worried until I realized it was because she was laughing so hard at me. It was an epic fail of the highest proportions.
So my theory in life is that the more bad timed moments you have, the more amazingly timed moments you are bound to have. Or at least that is how I felt when I arrived home to see my Anastasia stuff came the night before grad photos. This morning (pre bug bite), I put the products to the test!
As I mentioned in last Saturday’s post, I received the Summer Kit.
If you ever wear eyeshadow, you know that the poorer the quality, the more you need to put on (never a good thing). I just needed a whisper of this shadow and it went on well and stay put all day (until the hot tub incident, that is). They are the perfect summer colours and can be worn with anything!
I have a confession. I rarely wear lipgloss because I hate the stickiness that most products have. I tested this stuff out and was incredulous. No stickiness to be found and the colour lasted forever. I have no air conditioning in my car so I was sweating like a beast on the way to school and I was drinking coffee – and it still stayed. This is miracle lip gloss and I am completely in love.
Tinted Brow GelThe brilliant portable version of the amazing brow kit the Anastasia offers. It was one of the first things I ever reviewed for them and I still use it almost every day! This is lovely – so light and you don’t need to worry about eye brows running askew. Success!
The finished product?
I really want you to experience this, so if you feel like you specialize in good timing, leave a comment on my webpage and you can win this:
It is the waterproof lash genius I reviewed here and a special gift thrown in because you are awesome. I will make the draw next Saturday! If you want a kit for yourself, head on over to Sephora or Anastasia’s webpage.
