Skinny small

For you, my dear.
A bouquet of fresh chosen wildflowers for you, my friend, courtesy of the “floral artisans” at the regional playground.

Translation: Connor as well as the other bit woman she was playing with ran up as well as down every hill plucking every yellow flower in sight when we were at the playground the other day, as well as when I was handed the final bouquet, my very first believed was, “Oh, this is so pretty. I question exactly how numerous dogs have pee’d on these flowers.” ?


Got a few things on my mind today that I wished to chat with you about, including broadening my makeup understanding with a couple of new books, as well as a classy styling tool that will permanently modification the method you see flat irons.

Also, there’s a healthy, yummy, simple poultry recipe at the end that I believe everybody — even the pickiest eaters — will love. It’s so great that if Tabs were around, I’m sure he’d try to take the food off my plate.

As I understand you know, this last month I was reminded that life is blisteringly (and unfairly) short. To put it mildly, this has lit a terminate ? under my @ss, as well as now I want to discover as much as I can about anything as well as whatever — all of my interests. one of those interests, of course, is makeup.

I mean, I do understand a thing or two about it already, however there’s a whole broad world of methods as well as history as well as charm vocabulary that I’ve yet to discover.

Kevin James Bennett, MUA as well as outspoken dude

This month I’ve been reading a couple of books that were suggest by makeup artist Kevin James Bennett. He’s an Emmy award-winning MUA as well as a somewhat questionable existence on social network since he goes for the jugular when it concerns calling out what he sees is wrong about present charm influencer culture.

Reading is fundamental.
While I don’t have the mental bandwidth to offer keeping that element of his material (again, life is short), I like the technical info he offers on his Instagram as well as his blog.

He composed a listing of his most-used makeup recommendation books, as well as I chosen up two of them from Amazon: Color: A program in Mastering the Art of mixing color by Betty Edwards, as well as The makeup artist Handbook by Gretchen Davis as well as Mindy Hall.

I’ve only been able to skim a few chapters in color so far, however they were fascinating! The book dives deeply into the art as well as science of color mixing as well as explores the vocabulary as well as theory behind it.

I want to be able to comprehend the “why” behind which colors “go” finest with which colors in makeup, photography as well as life in general.

Hue as well as value!
The other book, The makeup artist Handbook, is like a succinct handbook on whatever you’d ever requirement to understand as well as own to do makeup on a production set. It’s written for experts as well as working artists in the market as well as covers a broad range of things I’ll most likely never requirement to do (like producing a beard! FROM SCRATCH!), however they’re still fun to know.

Does that eye in the middle freak you out?
Lots of detail
You discover something new every day.
Stuff I can utilize in daily life
And just in situation you requirement to make a beard!
I believe from a laid-back makeup lover’s standpoint, the chapters on charm makeup as well as natural makeup for photography as well as film are the most helpful as well as helpful, so I can’t wait to dive into that.

Mini flat irons are a thing

Check out this cool bit piece of devices I chosen up just recently at Ulta. It’s a small flat iron!

LOOK exactly how thin THE PLATES ARE! They’re so skinny.

Skinnier than your skinniest pair of skinny denim (ya know, the ones that make you feel like a sausage in a casing)
I had no concept that small flat irons were even a thing up until I just recently looked for different methods to smooth the crazy rogue infant hairs around my hairline (because I understand that plucking them isn’t a long-lasting solution).

“Cuz I understand you like it hot.” LOL!
They’re generally utilized to tame extremely short hairstyles like pixie cuts since the ultra-thinness of the plates lets you get better to the scalp than a conventional flat iron.

I utilized it for the very first time yesterday, as well as yes — you can certainly get close to your roots.

Like, uncomfortably close.

On the one hand, awesome. On the other, I’m deathly scared I’m going to unintentionally shed myself.

It assisted to smooth down my infant hairs, though, so that’s a plus. I’ll have to do it a few much more times to get into a flow… (If you see me rocking a Disney Princess Band-Aid across my forehead in the next few days, you’ll understand what happened.)Kulinárny odmietnutie

Tu je niečo, čo ma došlo len po tom, čo som poskytol narodenie Connal: Budem musieť urobiť večeru za ňu každú noc na najbližších 18 rokov.

Prečo to nikto mi nepodal na dojčenskej sprche?

Som trvalý hľadanie receptov na večeru, aby som pridal do rotácie, takže som urobil tento pečený roll-up hydina na druhej noci prvýkrát od receptu na Veľký

Primárnym dôvodom, prečo som chcel vyskúšať, že to bolo, pretože uviedol, že celkový čas, ktorý by trvalo od začiatku, aby dokončil, vrátane prístav času, bol 35 minút.

Tu je to, čo vyzerajú skôr, ako ich poposujete do rúry …
…a potom! Trochu sa zmenšujú.
Poďme jesť!
Zlepšiť bezlepkové strúhanky, pretože som odmietol zaplatiť $ 9 za predvedené, ktoré som objavil na bezpečnosti.
Aj keď to bolo absolútne chutné, rovnako ako všetci, ktorí ich hádali, … neexistuje žiadna metóda v pekle to bolo 30-minútové jedlo. Trvalo to asi hodinu od začiatku dokončiť.

Udelené, musel som rozdrviť nejaké bezlepkové sušienky, aby sa strúhal. (Side Poznámka: Búchanie sh * t von z sušienok s valcovým kolíkom je podivne terapeutický. Mali by ste to skúsiť niekedy.) Aj keď som tiež musel tenko narieknúť niekoľko hrubších krčiatok, ktoré trvali chvíľu.


Stále som to urobil.
