I found this tip over at REAL SIMPLE, and I needed to pass it along. You see, a few weeks ago while trying out a new lipstick, I made the mistake of partaking in a beverage. This obviously ended in disaster. My tea-cup was cream and gold and red all over, an absolute mess. This tip is ridiculously awkward, never thought inconspicuous glass licking would become an item on my agenda, nevertheless… I’m thinking perhaps dipping my napkin into my ice water and swiping the side of the glass might be a bit more conducive, but either way, the simple tip from REAL SIMPLE has the wheels turning.
Do share if you have better tips/ideas about keeping your lipstick on your lips, I’m eager to hear them. Also, if anyone has any magic ideas about how to keep newspaper ink off your hands that would also be infinitely helpful.
In honor of Sunday procrastination, here my friends, is a round up of what I’m reading/listening to across the interwebs this week.
1st– A list of questions we should all ask ourselves sometime. Usually I find these lists pretty cheesy, but I actually found these really thoughtful. (first found from Smart Pretty & Awkward)
2nd– This is genius. If feels like designers are never considering the fact that women wear these crazy things called bras. Backless tops and key holes are great, what’s not great is bra straps hanging out. Enter this beauty.
3rd– Horoscopes (I’m a Capricorn). Naturally this horoscope is spot on. I’m going to a poetry reading downtown this week, so fingers crossed.
4th– Another reminder why it’s important to know who you’re voting for in congress. Make sure your representative is actually representing you. Equal pay should have happened yesterday.

You may have noticed a peppy little counter in the bottom corner of ECE that exclaims (currently) 8 more days until Move In Day! I am pumped. I’ve started packing, Do It Yourself-ing, and making to-do lists galore. What I haven’t prepared for is that one freaking girl that gets on my last damn nerve.
She’s outwardly perfect, of course. In her vineyard vines frock and madden girl wedges, not one hair is out of place. She’s also one of these types that doesn’t need an invitation to come and have lunch/dinner with you. She comes, plops her tiny ass down, and starts probing into your life. Asking questions and then chuckling to herself after your every word. Imagine that scene in Mean Girls when Cady considers how things would be handled in animal world and she launches herself across the table at Regina. Yeah, that’s how I feel about this one.
Now Finally I know how to handle her. :) Enjoy my friends, enjoy.
Also, beware of adult language and topics.
I could not help but share this link. In case you missed it The Beauty Department posted the most clever DIY touch up kit. It’ll work no matter how itty-bitty your clutch is for going out. I’d dare say, it would even easily fit in your front pocket if you’re going casual in your favorite short-shorts.
Here’s the link. All you need is a spare contact case, which you can usually get free with your contact cleaner. I know I have about a half-dozen in my vanity. Leave the clunky foundation and blush cases at home and give this a try!

Enjoy Lovelies! And awesome post TBD. :)
