Monday Morning Mirth October 18, 2010

  Monday Morning Mirth  

penny-wise-9938
clockwise from top left: Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow (Cult – muted purple); NARS lip gloss (Belize – pink mauve);
Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow (Heist – mauve taupe); Benefit Powder Blush (Coralista)

What you see above could be the seminal definition of a time-worn but well-loved phrase.

When I get home at the end of my weary day, I have a place where I put all the essentials: keys, phone, wallet, etc. which land on top of a little cabinet. If I do not do this, if I deviate even with one item, the Universe falls off its axis. Always.

To appease the Universe, I’ve got three ceramic vintage flower pots on the floor around the cabinet. Into them go pennies, dimes & nickels, then in the last, quarters.

The other day I took the contents of the full jars to the bank and got Cash Money. Now the good thing about this Universe is that it doesn’t mind sharing the bounty!

I wonder how it feels about the fact that it wasn’t even an hour after that cash landed in my pocket that it had blasted a hole and grabbed everything it could see at the local Sephora next to where I work.

AiEee! An all time record for being penny-wise and pound foolish, (even for me)!

But check out that haul!!!

    Well, you didn’t make it to Rhinebeck, so I think you deserved a nice treat :)

    Urban Decay makes the best eye shadows and eye pencils out there. Love your choices!

    Ooh! Nice! Sephora is a total candy store in my opinion–and I am like a kid. All those little bottles of nail polish! Etc. Etc. And I hope you are signed up for Sephora Beauty Insider–okay, they send you emails, but they give you free stuff on your birthday. ;)

    Nars lipstick is great! I just got some Afghan Red which is the first red lipstick I’ve worn in years.

    Retail therapy — and you’ll put it to good use, so it’s all good!
