loreal true match foundation – i love the lumi version for when my skin is dry and this one for when i’m not.  but this month, i’ve been mixing a little of both together, and it’s perfect.

loreal voluminous million lashes excess mascara – it’s perfect for a more glam look.

maybelline lash discovery mascara – the little brush is perfect for the first coat of mascara and the bottom lashes.

the e-team – this netflix documentary is about the emergency team of the human rights watch organization.  it was so interesting.

burt’s buzz – another documentary.  this one is about the founder of burt’s bees.  it was kind of a sad story, but very interesting.
