Current Favorites: Beauty and Life Vol. 25

January is almost over, so let’s talk about the things we’ve enjoyed this month.

1) Morphe 35 Color Taupe Eyeshadow Palette 35T: I bought this gently used from another blogger. The hype surrounding Morphe products is well deserved. The eyeshadows blend well, are smooth and well pigmentated, and come in a great range of neutrals and browns.

2) Nachos:  It’s been years since I indulged in this salty, gooey snack. I make mine the simple way, with jarred queso spooned over tortilla chips and nuked in the microwave for 30 seconds.

3) Orange Carnelian and Garnet earrings:  I bought these on Etsy last year. I like the color contrast of red and orange, and they are lightweight and just the right length.

4) Stella D’Oro Lady Stella cookies: These are excellent tea cookies for winding down evening sessions (the time I take to relax before bed). Some are frosted, some are plain vanilla or chocolate. All are delicious.

5) My Gift from Another Blogger: Sense It Eve sent me a generous gift! I’m really excited to try all these new products.

  1. That Morphe palette looks nice! I’m personally a big fan of the 35 OM version.

  2. Oh my God! I miss those cookies! I got so excited because my local(ish) market started carrying them and I bought a package only to return at a later time and see the shelf empty. Turns out it was a random incident lol. They don’t carry that brand in the Midwest. 😦

    Glad to hear the Morphe shadows are as good as everyone says. I’ve been thinking about getting a palette. They’ve got new liquid lipsticks too!

  3. Oh my, it has been ages since I had Nachos. And they are not “glow-approved”, so I dont think I will have some soon.

    Woow you got the gifts 🙂 I have made a big package but the post-office guys literally scanned each and every item and removed all liquids including nailpaints from the package 😦 I got so frustrated with them but they did not allow any liquid products not even 5ml…So I repacked whatever they allowed 🙂 I hope you enjoy these 🙂
    Coming to nachos…deadly sin that I also indulge in sometimes without thinking about any calories 😉
