Humor – “Welcome To Life”

I saw this a long time ago but it recently cropped up again…and I laughed, but with a shadow over my heart at the same time.

Much that there are areas in which I’m sure we all wish things could improve, most of us are a lot better off than we may remember at a given moment…


There are definitely days that instead of dealing with people who simply DON’T think…I’d rather try to dodge flying bats or killer whales. I’m sure bugs and penguins across the globe are not only cringing at my words, but that they might actually sit me down and say “gratitude is a beautiful thing.  HAVE MORE, human.”

I can’t say they’d be wrong.

Spring 2016 – YSL Beauty

Thanks to ChicProfile for sharing images of this Springtime fun, albeit before the snow (I don’t mind!) 

The two YSL palettes are in limited supply, and will be launching in early Spring of 2016.  The compacts are gorgeous enough to deliberately display on a vanity (so you should, in other words, show them off!)

One compact is a Face Palette with three highlighting and correcting colors (violet, lavender and yellow) plugs a pink blush (it looks like it might have shimmer.)

The second compact, Couture Palette for Eyes pairs a mix of rose and mossy shadows with a glowing silver in the center – adding some flair, no doubt, so an otherwise Earthy palette.  Woodland Goddess??  

Let’s just go with that…shall we?!
