hugging myself since today is a excellent day!
I got my second vaccine shot yesterday and, FYI, this Band-Aid is officially the very best Band-Aid that ever was or ever will be. After it falls off, I may tuck it away in an envelope to ensure that years from now, when whatever is back to “normal” (“air quotes”) as well as we’re doing things like going to the Catalina white wine Mixer once again without feeling creeped out about crowds, I’ll discover this Band-Aid as well as think, “Eww, you’re incredibly gross, Karen,” as well as “Gosh, I sure was delighted that day.”

You understand this is one of my preferred movies, right?

This is the most hopeful I’ve felt in a long, long time.


Because I didn’t want to fail to remember exactly how delighted I feel, I put on some fun momentary tattoos by Tattly as well as some makeup to honor the day. I’m using a mish-mosh of traditional NARS eyeshadows (the Cordura as well as Isolde duos, as well as Blondie, Biarritz as well as Abysinnia) as well as a few new-to-me products for whatever else.

Some very first impressions

Revlon Colorstay Light Cover Foundation: I (incorrectly) presumed that since this has “Light Cover” in the name, it was a shot-out to sheer coverage, however nope! — it’s a recommendation to exactly how light this full-coverage matte liquid foundation feels on skin. It’s light as a feather! The protection of one layer is just timid of full, which is sufficient to hide red areas, freckles as well as unequal pigmentation. Then, you can add a lot more layers, which is simple to do since it blends so well, if you want to bump up the protection to full. For reference, my skin is dry on my cheeks as well as oily on my forehead, as well as this foundation handles both areas like a champ. offered in 12 shades, $13.99 each.

Clinque even much better All-Over Concealer + Eraser: Normally, full-coverage concealers look thick, dry as well as cakey when I wear them in my under-eye area, so I type of prevent them, however this demi-matte liquid concealer totally steers remove of fine lines. even after it dries down, it stays smooth as well as flexible, which is extremely cool! I plan to utilize this as a foundation, actually, since I believe it’ll be excellent for that too. offered in a whopping 42 shades, $26 each.

The pandemic as well as the lockdowns have transformed me into something of a hermit, as well as I’m still freaked out a bit (OK, a lot) about the believed of being among big groups of people, as well as like…doing things. LOL! I keep reminding myself that this as well shall pass, as well as we’ll be able to do a lot more things extremely soon. Like, I texted an old good friend I utilized to work with at the bakery as well as asked her if she wished to go on a hike in a couple weeks. I’m likewise starting to psychologically psych myself as much as go to an outside small-group HIIT class at the fitness center sometime in May!

Part of me still concerns that we might backslide if the virus takes a different course, so I keep telling myself not to get as well ecstatic about returning to typical life ideal away…but one more part of me likewise wishes to be hopeful.


This past year has altered me so much, as well as I’m betting it’s altered you too.
