I'm sick. I didn't put on real clothes until 4:00 today, and if it hadn't been for this blog, I wouldn't have even done that much. Plus, my husband left for North Carolina today (he's helping his brother move cross-country), so there's no one home to care for me! Call the waambulance, and while you're at it, tell the paramedics to bring me some soup.

Whenever I read those little how-to articles in beauty magazines, the resident expert says that when you're feeling too rundown to go all-out on makeup, you should stick with moisturizer and lipstick only. It's supposed to give the impression that you made an effort. Well anyway, I took their advice today, and I think there's something to it. I officially endorse that piece of advice for the rest of you: count on moisturizer and lipstick.


  1. I feel ya. I'm super sick and feeling miserable. I put on barely any makeup today and only made it through my Friend Friday post. I don't have the energy to put up my outfit photos tonight but I have to give myself a rest. I hope that you're feeling better soon, and thanks for the tip on the moisturizer and lipstick!

  2. i love the belted scarf look! i need to pull out that trick here soon. :)
