This is one of the Orly's I picked up at Sally earlier in the week. There were 11 shades (including the Goth I showed you a few days ago) in the core display with tags on the bottle neck reading "New/Nouveu". I went back yesterday and picked up Prince Charming, a mushroom brown creme, because I couldn't get it out of my mind! Green With Envy is a nice medium green creme that applied flawlessly in 2 coats. It's extremely shiny with no top coat and very smooth in texture. Now I'm excited to try out Prince Charming. How can such a small bottle of polish give us so much pleasure?!! I also received a small Sephora order and samples this week. I wanted to take advantage of my free birthday gift (the Sephora lip glosses) and I had a $30.00 birthday gift card to use, so I ordered more of my favorite eye lash primer by Shiseido. I also added the Stila lip glaze trio trying to get up to my $30.00 and had a free ship code for $25.00, so that order cost me all of $3.00.
On another topic, yesterday we certainly lost 2 cultural icons. Farrah Fawcett was the envy of many girls when I was younger and I imagine the fantasy of many guys! Michael Jackson, no matter what you may or may not believe about his private life, entertained and influenced so many people. He was a teacher and an inspiration to many of today's popular musicians and an extremely talented singer, dancer and producer. He was certainly one of my generation's most iconic and cultural legends. I grew up watching him grow up, as we're the same age (I'm old, I know!) and remember being entertained by him on TV as a little 10 year old singing with the Jackson 5. When MTV hit the airwaves (and it was good back then!), you couldn't go an hour without seeing Thriller or Billie Jean being played. I'll admit, I moon walked across the living room floor more than once! He was, by all accounts, right up there with Elvis and the Beatles. To lose someone that large so unexpectedly, certainly makes you think once again about how uncertain life really is. To me, music is kind of a soundtrack of our lives. When we hear certain songs, it can take us right back to a time in our lives when that song was popular and evoke so many different emotions and memories, depending on where we were at that point in our lives.
He now joins a very long list of people who have entertained me during my lifetime and are no longer with us. So to him and so many others, I say thank you for making me smile and for sharing your many talents with us.
