i know that no one really cares...

but i think i have finally found one of my life-long searches...

the quest for the perfect mascara. ok, it hasnt been a lifelong search, but at least since i started wearing making. i was probably 14 or 15? maybe 16? so its been at least 6 years. nothing has ever been good enough. i have tried everyyything. covergirl, maybelline, revlon, sephora, and even my beloved mac! nothing resulted in the perfect lash.

that is why, after 6+ years i was estatic that i have finally found the perfect mascara. clinique's lash doubling mascara. a-maz-ing! doesnt clump at all, always goes on perfect, makes them look longer, etc. perfect perfect perfect.

in other news,

this girls blog that i like, ...love maegan, does these blog posts called "completely gratuitous outfit post." also, last november(ish?) my friend livia did a wear-to-work challenge. basically, these ladies post(ed) pictures of what they were wearing, and where it was all from. when livia described it, it was a cool idea to find confidence and wear things in your closet you havent in a while, etc. and now i am thinking of doing it. it sounds fun. and maybe it will help me switch my outfit choice up a bit haha. although i do have to warn i wear like the same jeans everyday. i think somday soon they will disintegrate actually...

so, here is day 1! (also, i may have worn part of this yesterday morning-ish so please dont judge me, in-laws!)

green shirt: janelle, from a boutique in sf
tunic/tank thing: forever XXI
blue belt (not seen): urban outfitters
jeans: urban behavior
shoes: payless, like 6 years ago

there you have it, day 1. tell me if you think doing this is dumb or fun haha. those are your only options. happy monday! im off to eat/sleep/breath PLANTS!

Actually... You ALMOST found the perfect mascara. But you're on the right track! Because the perfect mascara is actually Clinique High Definition Lashes. Seriously, I'm so in love, I'm on my third tube, and I've converted my roommate. The brush comes with a built-in comb, which makes magic. Yes, I know you can just use a separate lash comb, but I hate extra tools, and I never use them. Try it, have your life changed! :)

Jess I have been trying to find the best mascara. I too have been on this never-ending search. I will have to try it out and see how it is. Also, you aren't dumb. You are cute. Keep the posts coming and I will maybe be inspired to wear different clothes...or maybe just buy more...
