A few things I picked up on my trip to Kansas City. Always a great place to shop, especially on the Plaza.

Review: Too Faced Eye Shadow Duo: Totally Toasted

I bought this kind of on a whim, thinking that I needed some neutrals for fall. I had only tried the Lip Injection by Too Faced, never the other products, so I didn't have high expectations. So that means that I was very surprised at how smoothly it went on, and how long it lasted through the day. It was highly pigmented with just the right amount of shimmer. Not overly glittery (like some shadows that I won't mention), but shimmery enough to give some glam, if you need it. The colors worked perfectly together, with the darker color complimenting the tan on the crease. I liked the shadow so much that I went and purchased a single shadow and one more duo the following week. Give it a try - I'm beginning to think that this company is under-recognized in the beauty market.

Perpetual Kid Shopping Spree

Perpetual Kid Shopping Spree

Browsing online tonight, I visited a shop that I've always loved but haven't taken a look at in awhile. Notice the Jesus bandaids. Those seriously rock, along with the Answer Me Jesus. I can hardly speak because I love these things so much.

Good times last night. It was a friend's birthday, and we went for dinner and then drinks at the local club. Inbetween the Bacardi and Cokes, I also tried a little delicacy called Italian Surfers. I highly recommend them.

Needless to say, I don't feel all that great today. So I'm sharing with you some great links for getting rid of the morning after nightmare we call hangovers.

Online Love

IM flirtations are fun. You can enjoy a relationship with someone that is far removed from your daily life. The problem is when you take those IM flirtations so far that you forget who you are. Or you forget that someone else might not be who they say they are.

This story might be one of the scariest things I have ever read. How could these people get so lost in their online world?
