Huh.  I thought I would post yesterday (Wednesday), but I actually ran out of time during the day.  Yes, that is possible.

But imagine my excitement when my Julep Maven box arrived today.  Okay, so everyone talks mad hype about Glossybox (uk), My glam, Birchbox, Beauty Tubes, etc.  But I really just like nailpolish.  And honestly, you get GOOD stuff with these boxes.  No "surprise" samples, or repeats like face wash, or expired masks, or repackaged stuffs.  Nope...just good old fingernail polish.

WHEE!  So basically receiving this box reminded me that I needed to share some recent faves.  Mostly, but not ALL beauty related.

1.  Physician's Formula Eye Booster liquid liner.  OMG y'all, this marker is AHMAZING.  I have tried L'Oreal's lineur intense (sp?), Napoleon Perdis' liner, NYX, but nothing compares to black liquid ink liner that is Physician's Formula.  Surprised, right? Me too.  But I have been religiously using this stuff about 4 times a week for probably 3 months now and I STILL love it.  It provides a pretty rigid line, that doesn't flake, transfer or fade throughout a full 12+hour day of wear.  I'm not the best at winged liner, but even my hair chick commented on how she loved it.  And she uses the much more expensive L'ancome Artliner.  So there.  Pick one up!

2.  Rescue Beauty Lounge polish-yes it is PRICEY$$$.  I'm talking $20/bottle, up from $18 a bottle.  But if you want some of the more unique shades that you won't find on all your friends (*ahem* CG's For Audrey), then RBL is your polish.  Just look around and you'll find tons of blogs that pay homage to this lovely little cult brand.  And the best part?  If you buy a limited edition polish, you hardly see them come around again. So you feel like you own your private little gem.  $20?  Worth it.  In my opinion, of course.

*side note*-if you want some of newly released polish, get on their mailing list and pre-buy your polish

3.  Blistex Lip Medex.  Like Carmex, but not ugly in a yellow/puke container.  You'll thank me.  But only if you like that mentholated feeling on your lips.  Which I do.


1.  Buckwheat.  I seriously have a hankering for this stuff.  It is technically a seed but I eat it every morning in some kind of porridge mixed with all things tropical and happiness in my stomach.  It keeps me sustained for well over 2+ hours and that is pretty good for me.  I'm a machine...I need fuel.

2.  The Library.  Oh man, I've been a reading MACHINE lately.  So much so, that Mr. O was upset with me for shirking housely duties in order to read.  WHAT?  I couldn't help it.  Sookie Stackhouse was needing to be read.  Yes, I read the entire True Blood series.  There are so many books I am waiting on to come out this year.  Gurgh.

Speaking of favorites...all of them.  What are some of yours?
