*taps mic* Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone still listening?
I can’t believe it’s been almost a month since I’ve done an actual, honest-to-Jim post. I’m still trying to catch up with school stuff but I found a bit of time, so consider this a half-post, or a three-quarter-post if you’re feeling particularly generous.
I hung out with my best friend, Maggie, last weekend and we decided to play around with makeup, as girls do. She didn’t have any base on hand with her, and although I have a lot of mismatched foundations (a plethora, some might say…), we’re so different in skintone that none of mine even remotely fit her.

Of course it depends on exactly how conservative your workplace is, but I think most offices … Continue reading
