Empath Humor – Voicemail

I’ve done this – which applies to introverts, empaths, INFJ types 1,000% – so many times I can’t count!

I’m NOT a phone person.  I don’t want people to call.  I don’t want messages.  I don’t even want notifications of messages!

Empath Humor – Introvert Problems (The Phone, Part 1)

I’m actually an Ambivert leaning strongly to Introvert (and an Ambivert’ed Introvert, also possible)…but this is SO incredibly true.  To the point of laugh-out-loud because I do it all the time.

Humor – Group Texts

A random digression…


I can’t STAND group texts…especially when the other names don’t come up.  You know what that means?  It means that I have NO IDEA who the other recipients are.

I don’t give my number out on purpose – people ask, and I respond by asking for theirs.  (So I can never call.)  So I’d rather NOT have YOU give it out on my (non-consenting) behalf.

And what about the annoying barrage of “who’s this?” or “who else is on here?”s?  

The kicker, though…?  The bajillion, text replies that follow, sending my phone into a flurry of continuous, randomized convulsions.  I feel like a hostage crisis might be less irksome – I could just tell you to your face to leave me alone (or not respond all together and be singled out as the crazy, silent one in the bunch.)

May I just say… A R G ! 

Smashbox Photo Filter

Smashbox has come out with a whole bunch of new products recently.  I don’t own the Photo Filter Powder Foundation but, in light of my recent Deciem post, this totally goes along with the whole companies-capitalizing-on-the-rise-o’-social-media thing!

Its promises are somewhat lofty, in the sense that it claims to act as a real-life phone photo filter, and it lasts all day – oh, the promise of being Instagramed for all to see in person!  (Is that comforting personally, but frightening when thinking of the masses?) Still, I have to say that the 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer is UH-MAZING.  I am incredibly active – gym, martial arts, for two – this stuff STAYS ON.  It’s phenomenal.

SO, going by the 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer, it’s possible Smashbox has another hit with this.  I love that the Photo Filter Powder is not the “usual chalky” but that it manages to blur imperfections in a translucent veil, with true color pigment coming through at the same time.  There appears to be a great deal of science and technology involved in today’s beauty scene – products are expected to be multi-taskers, at the least, and skincare, often, as well.  Long-wear is always an added benefit – this says 8 hours, which feels so short in comparison to so many products on the market today…BUT, it is still a full work day.

What I loved about the Smashbox product pages is that they not only show the color squares, but also ladies of a variety of different complexions, to help a shopper understand what will work best for her.  There are 10 shades in all, and they range from fair to deep, as I personally think all brands should! 🙂

.34 ounces is $42, so it isn’t a cheap buy…but since Smashbox is carried Sephora and their own stores, there is the possibility of playing around with it first. 🙂
