Happy Friday, congratulations for making it through another week, time is moving at an insane pace, how is it possible we are in mid- September already? Well you all know what a mad fan of Sephora Play I am, well occasionaly they offer there All Stars box which for $10 extra gains you some samples of wonderful products and brands. Here is my review, grab yourself a little drinkie, a G &T would do me nicely thank you. Please enjoy, any questions/suggestions please get in touch.
Happy Monday, how was your weekend? Ours was wonderful the weather here was outstanding. We were not expecting Saturday to be quite as good so we aborted our original plan and instead visited the giant.
I sort of think of him as the mascot, greeting people as they approach the city. Little L loved him, she compared him to the chicken statue that appears near her Uncle Fun’s house, but like they say “everything is big in Texas.” It also reminds her of one of her favorite stories The Spiffiest Giant In Town by Julia Donaldson. If you have not come across her books for children I urge you to do so, they are simply fabulous. If you follow me on Instagram @thelifestylelady you would have seen Little L and I enjoying the rest of Saturday afternoon in the driveway with chalk. Sometimes it is the simple things which can bring the most pleasure.
Mr L and I spent Friday and Saturday evening in one of our favorite ways, catching up on movies which we can no longer go to the movies to see, while enjoying a little wine. Friday night we watched Deepwater Horizon, this is a busman’s holiday movie for Mr L who works in the industry (not BP.) He had wanted to avoid it because he wondered how it would be portrayed. I felt lucky to be watching with an industry expert because he could really explain some of the science. Emotionally it touched us both so much, the power of nature and negligence. Saturday night we watched The Accountant, I have a confession I fell asleep half way through and ended up re-watching on Sunday. This was a little action over substance for me, not one of Mr Affleck’s best. Sunday morning I met up with a Dallas friend who was in Houston for a Bachelorette, it is always great to catch up even briefly. The rest of Sunday was spent doing my 15 point plan, if you missed that post please click on the link, it has certainly been popular. In continuation of that today I bring you part 2 of my make up declutter which is focusing on mascara. I am sharing with you ones I have liked and loathed and why. Please enjoy
