Dynamic Duo

So first off, I want to say I hope next week I will start blogging regularly on Weds and Friday. I think the past few weeks it’s been a lot of shock to my routine. From snow and 2 hour commutes, work stuff & starting volleyball, I’m just getting the hang of how to prioritize things. Thanks for those of you who bare with me! I will be gone this weekend for volleyball but with Monday off I’m hoping to get on track. And, as usual, I’ve been posting everyday as TechnoCupcake on Instagram. I hope to continue that regardless.

Anywho, I snapped a quick a photo because I thought I’d quickly mention a recent love. You know how you have items in your collection that everyone says they are wonderful, but you just don’t get it? You use it, but it’s just… Meh. Then one day, you find the right combo and there’s a serious ah-ha moment. That’s what happened to me recently.


So first, Laura Mercier silk cream foundation. Such a meh product for me. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t understand it. Like at all. It seemed fine, but not worth all that hype. Then, I pulled it out of a drawer and started by dotting it on my face. Then I used my Tom Ford cream foundation brush to buff it in. A happy accident really as I just hadn’t really fallen gaga over this brush yet.

Then, angles sang & it all made since. The TF brush gently buffed in the foundation, but also really quickly & effectively. It made it effortless. I was left with a perfect medium+ coverage that wasn’t streaky or cakey. The foundation really has lasting power & has been a savior for fast paced mornings.

I guess true love just takes some time & experimentation. Kind of like college. Was that my outside voice?
