I was sleep-deprived after election night. I couldn't stay up while "inconsequential" state after state came in, and I knew states like mine, where people waited in line to vote until 11:00 pm, would be delayed in reporting. I wanted to see the Ohio results, though, so I asked a night owl friend to call and awaken me the moment Ohio was called. He did, and I had to turn the TV back on at about 11:15. I watched for an hour, waiting for more news - or perhaps a glimpse of the candidates. Nothing much happened - except wild celebrations (they were waving flags from trees in front of the White House) - so I went back to sleep around 12:30 and got up at 4:00 to watch again. That was enough to leave me struggling to stay awake yesterday. I drank a lot of Diet Coke. On top of that, my right knee swelled - from waiting in line to vote, I assume - so I had to sit around with ice on it most of the day.
Add my shopping time to the dense clouds we had yesterday, and I have no photos for you today - despite the fact that I have a lot of nice new makeup to feature. I do expect to take my camera and a few new goodies to work with me today so that I can covertly snap a few photos outside in the cold at lunchtime. If the sun reappears.
If you are a V.I.B. at Sephora, make sure to use the code CELEBRATE with your order. I filled my basket last night. One of the items I wanted was sold out when I went back in to order it at 5:00 am. Wow! Don't delay if there is something you want. Order it! If you change your mind later, you can always return it.
Have you ever noticed that Sephora withholds from posting certain new items until the sale ends? I am dead sure, after years of observation, that the new eye shadow quads from Edward Bess will go up online the moment the sale ends. I could have ordered them from New York, but I didn't want to pay the $12+ postage.
Happy shopping! Come on back and let us know what you ordered. Vicarious shopping is fun.
