Stuff I Like

A list of things I read or applied to my body recently.  Reading, mascara (occasionally), sunscreen (always)... that's pretty much it.


Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream SPF 30.  Finally, a tinted product that can be applied like (and in lieu of, if applied liberally) sunscreen.  Great texture, good coverage, not gloppy or too thick.

Heartburn by Nora Ephron. Hilarious, poignant.  Really enjoyed this book.  Read a brief synopsis here.  Great if you like 1) food and 2) humor.  CONFIDENTIAL TO AMY STODDARD:  I think you will looooove and laugh your way through this book.  It is precisely your sense of humor!

Bumble and Bumble surf spray.  Spray on wet hair, do not touch hair, experience best-possible summer hair.

Can This Wedding Be Saved? Only By Legalizing Gay Marriage by A.A. Gill (Vanity Fair, September 2012).  A hysterical and trenchant look at the fetishization of wedding culture - and how gay marriage can save the modern wedding from its maudlin histrionics ("Viewed from the pews, weddings are theater produced by straight amateurs using their own money.") The solution:

The history of queer culture shows us that gay men are the trailblazers. Where they go, heterosexual women follow, dragging reluctant straight men behind them, who in turn bring Texans. That’s how civilization and musical theater evolve.

More sunscreen.  So non-greasy I barely have to wash my hands.  I love this.

My sister Elise sent me some great mascara for my birthday (Benefit They're Real!) and it's true: you do have to wiggle the brush for luscious lashes!

  1. I am going to buy some BB Cream soon. I can't decide which one! I have been looking through this guide:

    Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah!

    1. I have tried several samples from Nordstrom, then I bought this one on a whim. Really like!
