Advent Calendar Day 6

I thought I was afraid of blue lipstick. As it turns out, I am terrified of barbie pink lipstick, and wouldn’t you know it, that is exactly what we got today. I tried desperately to get this to cover the darker natural color of my lips, but 17 layers later I had to give up. You can actually see that there’s a bit of a bluish tone to the lipstick on my lips compared to the swatch on my hand because I can’t get it to fully cover my natural lip color.

But here we are. The challenge is still fun! However, out of 4 lipsticks, I’ve only gotten two I would actually continue to wear on the regular. I might keep the light pink metallic around for fun, but if Miss Butterfly doesn’t want this one, it’s gotta go.

I am trying an experiment with my hair at the moment, where I go a really long time without properly washing it. It does seem to have a lot more height and body at the moment, though this also has to do with the multiple texturizing products I’ve added over the past few days. It doesn’t seem to feel or look greasy yet, though I have been adding dry shampoo as well. I washed it on Monday, so we’ll see if I cave tomorrow as it feels like a very long time for an every other day hair washer like me.

One more photo for today:


This silly little Lizzie dog who sometimes looks a lot like a teddy bear got an all clear on her eye yesterday. I am so thankful we don’t have to bother her with drops and worry about her eye anymore. I really hope we don’t have to go through that again. These two are such angels when we are at home with them, I really hope that Rose the Buzz Saw doesn’t shred through anything today while I am at work! We’ll see. (We actually gave her a cheap moving blanket to shred so she’d do that instead of shredding Mr. Ink’s clothing if she felt the need to shred during the day.)

That’s it from here, hoping for a lovely day today so that I can get a photo of my latest knitting finish after work! So glad we are almost through the week as well, I am exhausted, I don’t know about you!

  1. Your scarf is great with that lipstick. Hope the blanket gets snuggled not shredded. My Veterinarian sister put her german shep pup on the same indestructible blanket as you , and she ripped it to smitereens as my mom my would say.

  2. I give you credit for trying the out of your comfort zone colors! Not sure I would be brave enough, but clearly it is worth it, you look so pulled together!

    Looking forward to the knitting!

    Those dogs are angels! Glad Lizzie’s eye is better.

  3. I’m happy Lizzie got an all clear. Rose is shredding because of anxiety. Probably separation anxiety. Have you tried spraying some doggie pheromones in the air before you all leave the house? I had two dogs that really went through separation anxiety and the vet recommended the pheromones. It really helped relax them.

    • Thank you, we will look into that! We would love for her to be more comfortable when we are gone to work and school. We are thankful we can limit our time away, but it would be nice to be more comfortable leaving her home when we need to.
