This photo was going to be the adorable bubble tea we ordered but it's of a book instead. The bubble tea photo was deleted.
We were so delighted to try MILK+T a bit back, before their grand opening. It is delicious and unusual in that you can customize your sweetness, and add all your on toppings—which I want to call bottomings, because it's boba, jellies, and items that sink to bottom of the tea. Hard packed ice-cream is on top and they are served in these glass bottles you can take home and bring back for refills. Pretty great.
We are in full show mode in the house, each girl has a production they are in, all different, and then my Nutcracker show I am sewing for, so that's 4 shows all by the beginning of December. I love the energy and buzz. This week I am designing the Spanish dancers, but was interrupted sewing Bollywood style mens' tunics and pants for another studio, which was so fun. All the trims! I can't believe I get paid to do this.
- I am reading Circe and loving it so much. I have 5 days to finish it before it's due back in the library. I will buy a copy, because I think other house members would enjoy it, but I am liking the imposed deadline.
- I am now really committing to creme eyeshadow. Cream? Let's go with creme. I love eye shadow, but a few years ago had to admit it didn't love me. My whole eye make-up game has been changing. I am using a lot less, no liquid liner on top anymore. For now, anyway. It just makes me look more tired. I love subtle color on my eyelids—neutrals, to combat the yellow/purple weirdness that is normally there, but powder was just sitting in a not-good-pro-wrinkle way. I am fine with wrinkles, I just don't like celebrating them. I busted out my trusty MAC Paint Pot in Painterely, which I love so much and had forgotten about, and it was perfect just as a shadow. I searched a bit more and bought a really nice neutral matte color of this creme shadow from the drugstore (cheap!) that I dab on the corners of my eyelids over the MAC one and blend in with my finger and I am done. There is no creasing or wrinkle celebration going on. I am very very happy. I want to wear the metallics, but I probably won't. But, I might.
