Make a Wish

I was just looking through for their Twitter 'Sephora Clause' promotion going on (they will grant one wish a day) and found a few awesome items I have to share. I "wished" for these adorable blinged out tweezers by Tweezerman:

OK, this is like a colored pencil set for your eyes!!! The set is a hefty $249 though. Few. I think I can live with my Wet 'N' Wild eyeliners for a bit longer. ;)

I've decided tomorrow I'm going to wish for this cool Make Up For Ever color case. You can mix the shades and use the colors anywhere on your face. Mm, the possibilities!

One last thing before I go -- check out this stunning LED dress created by CuteCircuit. You must click this link and watch the video. The colors are amazing!

OPI + Dell . . .

I just read this and thought it was pretty awesome! Dell has partnered with OPI to offer people laptops personalized with their favorite OPI shades. Too bad I'm I firm Mac girl. :) PCs can check them out here. They have some pretty cool design options.
La Paz-itively Hot! by OPI

Speaking of nails, I finally did them yesterday. They're not too exciting but I thought I'd share nonetheless. I couldn't find my Konad image plates (!!!) so I settled for purple tips by hand. I've never liked the green color but the contrasting purple makes them more acceptable.

OK, now I'm off to meet my friends for lunch at my old school. Yayy! Glad to have the day off. :) Thank you, troops!

Magazine Junkie

Like many girls out there, I have a thing for magazines. I love the glossy pictures, the [nearly always unattainable] hair and makeup tips, the samples and coupons. . . mm. My trouble is I never have the heart to throw them away. I have a couple years each of Allure, seventeen, YM with a few scatterings of other random issues along the way. They're stacked in various spots in my room, but needless to say, they aren't actually getting much use. I don't even have the courage to use them for art projects. There's just something wrong about tearing out a page or cutting out a picture. I'm in quite the predicament because I've just ordered a two-year subscription to Marie Claire (from Amazon for only $5!!!! That's 21 cents an issue!) and it's occurred to me I have no idea where I'm going to put another 24 magazines. Ahh!

Any ideas of how to painlessly lessen my clutter? I know they can be donated to thrift stores, but that doesn't seem a dignified enough end for the beauties. What to do, what to do . . .

P.S. I just came across this sad reality faced by many magazines of late. These are some of the last days of Gourmet as documented by an employee.

I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time finding products to sufficiently tame my really-wavy-borderline-curly-but-always-thick-and-frizzy hair. While checking my e*mail, I came across a new line of haircare products designed to specifically make the most of your haircut. According to Sephora, it's a new, patent-pending technology that "fits the unique technical requirements" of your cut.

"Its macromolecular complex creates interactions between the hair fibers via a system of charges that impel the cut to behave brilliantly. The innovative dual dispenser delivers a balanced combination of polymers and collaterals, each of which would be unstable as a single-phase product."

That a lot of science speak for hair products, but I'm certainly intrigued. They make goo for five basic cuts: long layers, bob, shag, blunt, and pixie. If any of you out there give this stuff a try, let me know what you think of it!

You can browse the line here on Sephora's website.
