:affiliate: I love makeup brushes. They are like little, fluffy pets that I don't have to feed, water, walk or clean up after when they barf on my broadloom. I'm looking at you, Marley. You and your hairballs. I love that cat but damn! The other night, about three in the morning, he hacked up like eight hairballs all over my living room floor behind one of the chairs.  And I have to face cleaning it up. In truth, I enlist the husband unit because: Anyway, I'm sure that you didn't come here to read about my cat and his hairballs so let's move on.  I love to peruse sites that offer really luxe makeup brushes. Hakuhodo ,  Chikuhodo , Suqqu give me major grabby hands and make me drool, I dream of them, make wish lists, then I remember that  and I come down from the lofty heights and I get real.

Say Hello to My Little Friend | Marley Cat

I was shooting photos of a serum, the other day when Marley jumped up into the window behind my backdrop and I was able to swing my camera and light up and snap this shot of him at just the right moment.

Sample Saturday | Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs

Image
::affiliate:: Let us discuss, today on this Saturday, a sample of a lovely fragrance.  I love fragrance sample vials. They give me a chance to not only sniff a fragrance on a card but to apply it to my skin, wear it and live with it a few times to see if I really want to invest in it. You can always tell when I have really enjoyed a fragrance sample.
