- Alex Rodriguez finally started a game last night for the Yankees. On the same day that his 211 game suspension is announced... I really don't have any idea why he has decided to appeal the suspension or what the evidence is against him. But, he's on my team, so I want him to do well and help us win. And of course, as a criminal defense lawyer it's not that difficult for me to see him as innocent until he is proven guilty. I won't be surprised when that day comes, but for now I just want him to hit some home runs!
- I was so glad that Desiree picked Chris last night! I've liked how she's handled herself this entire season, and I was glad to see that she didn't let Brooks's departure ruin her time on the show. I think she was right when she said that him leaving allowed her to really invest in Chris. And let's be real-- Chris is SO much of a better catch than Brooks.... (Drew was never even a factor for me. There was never any chance that she would pick him.)
- I bought my first NYX Cosmetics products the other week (thank you BOGO sale plus coupon at Ulta!), and I really, really love them. I bought the blush (shade: Amber) to replace my NARS Orgasm, which has gotten way too shimmery as I make my way to the bottom of the pan, and the eyeshadow (shade: Iced Mocha) as a non-glittery dupe for Urban Decay's Sidecar shadow. The Butter Gloss (shade: Creme Brulee) was just because it was half off, and I wanted it!
I could not be happier with these purchases! These items ran me a combined total of $10, and were exactly what I wanted. The blush is matte but the perfect peachy pink shade, and the eyeshadow is a nice soft taupe color with a hint of shimmer but no glitter. The gloss doesn't have too much color on its own, but it's VERY moisturizing and long-lasting.
- I'm all caught up on the Netflix series I've started. I'm desperate waiting for Season 6 of Burn Notice to arrive, but until then I'm not sure what I want to watch. I tried Orange is the New Black but hated it. Other suggestions of series I should start??
