Just Can't Get Enough

As a marketer, I love testing out different things to see what works and what doesn't. In the business world, it's all about ROI. In my personal life, a lot of times it's about what looks good and produces the most enjoyment. So, I tried something different with my makeup today, and I'm not sure it garnered good results.

Bare Minerals from Bare Escentuals has a new type of eye shadow out: High Shine. Although I originally though it would be liquid, it's not - it's dry and flaky, with a heavier consistency that normal eyeshadow. I purchased the gold color, Bronzed, thinking I'd like to try a lighter, glittery eye shadow on my lids to see how it would work. Well, as you can see in the picture, the gold is just too light, and I really need a darker color to make my eyes pop. Oh well. You live and learn, right?

As for my outfit, I am wearing a green BCBGMaxAzria dress that my in-laws gave me for Christmas last year. It's hard to believe the holidays are almost here! Although I know I will have difficult days ahead - Izzie seems to be on my mind more and more lately - I am excited to spend time with my family. I can't wait to see my nephews in just a few short weeks! I'm sure they have grown so much since I saw them last.

The shoes today are the Charles David Soulful pumps in Camel, and the necklace is from Betsey Johnson. I'm not sure you can see it clearly in the picture, but it's a red apple. I just think it's the cutest thing.
