I spent the entire weekend in the house with my daughter. Mainly because of the horrible rain and dreary weather, but also because it was necessary. Yes, I could have maybe gone out to a Mall or something just to get out of the house but this weekend was different. I literally spent almost the entire weekend in my bedroom watching television, catching up reality shows and scrolling the internet. I felt like that is something that I rarely get to do and decided to go for it. My daughter would come in and out when she needed me or I would pop in and out of her room from time to time and play here and there and that was pretty much it. Seeing that she is five now, so she feels as though she is somewhat independent, which I find pretty funny seeing that she can’t even reach the faucet in her bathroom to wash her hands. Anyway…. Yeah I am feeling quite refreshed. I almost felt guilty for a second because I felt as though I was being unproductive, but then I thought to myself, what if I went nuts from being over worked and stressed? I would definitely be unproductive and dysfunctional then. I baked brownies, ate ice cream and ignored phone calls that could possibly wait until Monday. Pretty much, be lazy sometimes, its OK.
So recently I have decided to get back into wearing lipstick. I used to wear it and turned to lip gloss mainly because I found one in particular and became addicted to it. Recently I have fallen in love with the Bobbi Brown Collection berry punch to be exact. I think this lip colors fall perfectly in line with FALL! I love the deep red and cranberry color lips for the season as well as the matte finish. Nude lips are also timeless all year long so always keep that in mind. The one lip color that I just can’t pull off are super dark lips, like black or dark brown. I have yet to find one that looks well on me. I am still on my search and hopefully I can find on that I like soon. Check out the Bobbi Brown Collection. I hate that it took me so long to try it myself.
Have you ever had a conversation with a man and you could not make eye contact. It’s not because you can’t look at the person, its because they won’t look at you. I just find it so odd and it really bugs me. Today I was talking to a male co-worker and I noticed that he kept looking down at the floor as we spoke. It made me quite uncomfortable because I could not figure out what the issue was. As curious as I was, I took to google just to see exactly how important eye contact was. Here are some interesting findings about those who make good eye contact:
Numerous studies have shown that people who make higher-levels of eye contact with others are perceived as being:
- More dominant and powerful
- More warm and personable
- More attractive and likeable
- More qualified, skilled, competent, and valuable
- More trustworthy, honest, and sincere
- More confident and emotionally stable.
