Just a bit of randomness for you this week.
• The above video of an eagle owl flying in slow motion is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in ages. Let’s be honest, it beats any lipgloss swatch (Oh, I’m going to beauty hell!) I’m absolutely mesmerized by the motion of his wings. Gorgeous!
• Our fabulously talented former DIY writer, Kirsten of Studs and Pearls shared a way for beauty junkies to display their favorite packaging. Clever!
• I’ve forever wanted white jeans, but the thought of draping my butt in something so illuminating has prevented the purchase. But check out these Monika Chiang Dip Dye jeans. Dark, flattering denim where you need it, which morphs into the color of the season. Hooray!
Question of the Week: – What product(s) do you use to clean your makeup brushes?
