Make Up Purge – Part Two Mascara

make-up-declutter-part-2-mascaraHowdy Y’all,

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

 

Until next time!

January Cleaning/Organizing Makeup Purge

Howdy Y’all,

How are y’all today? Today I need to get back to the gym so that is my mission, I hope not to fail, what are your plans this week? How was your weekend? Mine was good, it started Friday when I went antiquing, it did me good to get out and have a giggle with a friend, I purchased a few small things. Little items for the house. Is that something you might be interested in? I could do a haul, let me know. I love items with a history/story to it, perhaps it is the Brit in me.

On Saturday we had friends to dinner, I was a little disappointed with the pie I made, it didn’t go as well as usual but ho-hey, dessert was good and quite frankly that is the best bit. Sunday was a little quiet which secretly I like, I have a little list of things I like to do on a Sunday to make my week run more efficiently, maybe I will do a post about it.  I have perfected a system which makes me face a new week with a positive outlook. Another little gem was that Mr L got a new car, I secretly love to see him happy, even if I give him a little stick. I am happy to see him enjoying the fruits of his labor. It is well deserved for him, he is always kind and generous to others so I love seeing his uncontrollable smile.

Today’s video is about purging, when I arrived back from the UK part of my rehabilitation was to get the home back in a routine, I love the fresh perspective that some distance from home gives me. I don’t set myself unreliable expectations but slowly cover the areas where I need to sort or purge. Today my video covers makeup in particular face makeup.  This week I want to get sorted on my kitchen going through draws and getting rid of clutter and equipment I don’t need or use, it is so uplifting and cathartic. Wish me luck.

Enjoy your week friends.

Ta Ta for now,
