After a *very* busy 2019, I was more than happy to welcome 2020 as the fresh slated I needed. In fact, as I started the new year covered in confetti and balloons surrounded by some of my closest friends, I got the feeling of how special this year could really be. While I’m often a bit more cynical, and unreliable with my resolutions, I decided that I would create my resolution list in the spirit of...
New York City in summer isn’t hot… it’s sticky.
In addition to sticky I would say it’s busy (proven by the traffic that delayed my bus ride into Port authority station), beautiful (the brownstones off of Washington Square Park are evidence enough), and overwhelming (both in a good and honestly, in a bad way).
When I bought my first mascara I was roped into a Covergirl blue tube of “professional mascara”. The reason I picked it up… my mom, a non-makeup wearer, recommended it. While I love my mom, she didn’t know what she was talking about. It was runny, and clumpy, and grey, and horrible. I was a “professional mess” and in an aisle of mascara tube after mascara tube I had no idea which tube to buy next.
