Hi Guys. I feel like it’s been awhile. Just wanted to stop in for a chat. Here’s a little catch up, I’m digging, rando sort of post for your Monday.
So the gray out continues. For now at least. I don’t know what the plan is long term, but I’m trying for at least no hair color until 2017. It’s been a little over two months. So far it isn’t bothering me, but I think my viewing it as more of a science experiment makes me less cringe-y about it. It is noticeable though. I have both more AND less gray hair than I thought. The hair that is gray is at least 50% gone. But I have patches that are untouched. The back isn’t gray. I also have one stripe by my hairline without gray. This means when I pull my hair back, you can’t tell as much. Very interesting.
I just heard this song at the grocery store today, and I’m a little obsessed. You guys all know this song? What’s that? You’ve been listening to it for over a year and now you are sick of it? Alright, alright. Don’t ruin this for me. #tastemaker
Speaking of things that I’m loving, do you guys know about eyelid primer? I seem to have gotten a bareMinerals sample at some point that I’m finally trying. (Prime Time Eyelid Primer.) Y’all. This stuff is legit. I enjoy my gel eyeliner for ease of application, but I swear there is nothing left by the end of the day. Problem no longer. This stuff has made application a little tricky because I’m used to being able to just smudge it around and now it stays put, but it’s a trade I will happily make.
Also also, the first two seasons of Fixer Upper are on Netflix until January 1. I can’t explain exactly why I’m obsessed with this show, but I am. Maybe it is the thought of taking a place and really making it your own. Maybe just inspired by people who have four kids and do so much. I don’t know, but I’ve been binging. I’m on a deadline after all.
On the Italy front, we tried a panettone from a specialty shop instead of the grocery store. (This one, but I’m sure other bakeries and such are similar.) Turns out they are MUCH better. More expensive. But worth it. Now I get it. They aren’t just for turning into French toast anymore.
Also, we did Naples the weekend after Thanksgiving and I LOVED it. Neapolitan pizza actually isn’t my jam (blasphemous I know), but the city itself was very fun. I’ll try to get some pics here. Eventually.
For upcoming travel, we are hitting the Christmas markets in Vienna. (You guys know I love the Christkindlmarkt. I’m excited.) Then we are doing Venice in February for Carnival. I’d like to hit Milan some weekend, but I keep forgetting to lock down Last Supper tickets. Nothing planned on this yet, but I think we’ll do a big trip through Spain as our final hurrah here this spring. I welcome all suggestions.
How are you? Are you Team Shiplap? Do you have a favorite eyelid primer? Can you believe it is December already?? Hope you are enjoying the holidays thus far!
