Eating some toast, minding my own business when I get asked if I wanted to go to Easter Mass. My response, totally unthinking was, No – I’m cool on Christ. Even I was shocked that this came out of my mouth! I immediately flashed back to my youth when I was discussing the Pope at the time (JPII) with my grandparents and I said, I think he is probably going to kak soon. In my defense, he literally passed away later that same year so I wasn’t wrong. Should one use kak and His Holiness in the same sentence? I mean, it’s probably frowned upon but sometimes I just don’t want to come up with a polite, innocuous way of expressing myself. Being overly polite is exhausting, I guess it is a good sign though that I can recall every for instance where I legitimately did/said something truly offensive as this indicates that it couldn’t be happening that often. I could just try to be polite on some normal level, for example, when declining to sign up for a store card I could just say, No thank you instead of, No – but thank you for asking, I know that it is part of your job and I appreciate you making the effort. That is legit what I say, every time – I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
Anyway, I think it’s time for a month-end Best Of roundup – here are some products that I was loving this month but I won’t lie, there aren’t that many:
Get Glossed Hair Serum – So after I had highlights put into my hair, I had a ton of breakage and was super upset because my hair is already so short that the baby hairs just stuck straight up. I have been using this hair oil to repair my damaged hair that will never, ever see a bottle of bleach again and to keep my hair from sticking up. This product smells really nice and it only takes about a pump for my short hair.
Venus Palette – This is a great palette for spring with the mauves and pinks, I busted this classic out in anticipation of the new Venus XL palette that recently came out and I cannot wait to start using. Lime Crime shadows are awesome and their palettes have such awesome artwork.
Body Hero Oil Wash – This was an acquired taste, at first I thought that it stunk and was disappointed that it didn’t lather, even though it is an oil wash, I guess I was expecting more lather. I got used to the scent, it’s definitely unique and more intense than what I am used to. The scent lingers subtly all day and this wash is very moisturizing. I will say that I wish that it came in a bigger bottle because I blow through this.
Rose Champagne Blush – It was an all things pink month and this pink blusher imparts the perfect wash of pigment that looks like a natural flush. I don’t know if this was a new addition to the shade range but I only just noticed it at the drugstore and had to try it.
Aside from skincare, I wasn’t trying many new things this month but wanted to do a small Best Of anyway. Also, here is a peek at the Venus XL palette and it’s stunning:
I did get through a couple of good books this month including, Force of Nature, Sunburn and Pet Cemetery. I couldn’t get into Jane Harper’s first novel, The Dry but I really enjoyed the narrator on Force of Nature and think I will give the audio book a whirl since this is turning into a series and I like the main character. Sunburn was such a unique story and Pet Sematary was a re-read, I actually listened to the newly recorded audio book with Michael C. Hall and he nailed it. That’s it for this month.
Thanks for stopping by ❤
