Let’s talk lipstick.

Now, to the naked eye, it would appear that I might have a thing for red lipsticks. But guess what! You’re right. However, I’m actually extremely horrible at picking out lipstick. A) I’m mildly terrified of variety. and B) decisions of this caliber completely stress me out. I basically pick what makes me look the least psychotic and go with it. It’s probably why I have less than ten human friends.

What are you wearing right now? (lipstick, you pedo!) What do you feel like will be the new trend for fall? Do you think we’ll go back to the brown families? The chocolates, nudes, cocoas, tree bark, mulch and dog food hues? ‘Cuz I might be in.

FUN FACT: Did you know that during a recession, lipstick sales go up? It’s totally true. History shows that when times are at their toughest, women tend to purchase more lipstick, in the effort to feel better about themselves. I think they do that with nail polish, too. And the good paper towels.

KC PEEPS, have you seen that our beloved local Roasterie coffee now sells in the TARGETS? This is maj. Actually, it’s bad news bears, because now I have yet another reason to set foot in that delicious vortex black hole of a store. Local coffee + Target = Bev is broke.

And and and! They have six blends. This isn’t sponsored, I’m just irrationally obsessed with Roasterie’s coffee. My summer jam has been to stroller stroll with my bud Amanda down the Harry Wiggins Trolley Trail, pop in the Brookside Roasterie for an iced coffee, keep walking all the way until we nearly reach the plaza, and head our britches back. We’re making it our fall jam, too.

Want me to stop saying jam?

FIIIIIIEEEENE, we’ll watch Breaking Bad. But we’re waiting until winter snow storm season. Don’t try and change my mind!

On that note, on a scale from 1 to 10 – Scandal?

What about Free Willy?

Mamas, have you seen these hysterical Tommee Tippee baby wipes? Oh dear Kelly Clarkson feathers, please tell me you have. So they have this new campaign (this is also the furthest thing from sponsored, I’m just bonk-wad giddy over this message) called Parent On. Actually I think it’s hashtag Parent On. Er, #ParentOn. SOMETHING.

It’s all about ignoring the a-hole opinions, the unwanted advice, the know-it-all turds, and just do yo’ THANG. So get this, they took all these articles from different parenting books and magazines, and recycled them into baby wipes! Hahahahahah. Is this even real? IT SO IS.

And the girl in the video’s all like, “Here’s what you can do with your opinions…” and then she wipes her baby’s butt. !!! Gaaaah, I love it. I just think it’s so bold and fantastic.

Kudos, TT.

    I'm always shocked when women don't wear lipstick. What a difference (the right) color can make. Even with no other makeup on, I like an eye popping red on (I have darker skin) even at 7:30 in the morning. I've read about lipstick in the recession too, so true! And right after WW2 Lipstick and and stockings were huge.

    I bought this one:||0 in "Unending Red" early spring of this year and am in love with it. Instead of a bricky red, it has a slight pinky/fuschia tone to it, which I think really helps to brighten up my 40 something face. I love it so much, I have bought a couple more for back-ups (just in case!) even though I'm not out of tube one.....discontinued colors make me cry! I have tried a lot of indelible lipsticks over the years, and love them. Just have to REALLY let them dry before applying the gloss over and they will last a very long time. I get lots of compliments on this one! I wonder two what lip colors we'll be seeing for fall?

    I have an embarrassing amount of lipstick...lately I have been going for the "Kylie Jenner" look. Which I hate myself for loving so much, but she knows what's good. And warm nudes, like MAC's honey love. I always admire your lipstick colors in your snapchats!!! :)

    Ok, I've been wearing the same lipstick since I was 13. No really. It's by Clinique and it's called 'Black Honey.' It's one of those colors that morphs based on your skin tone. I love it. It's the only non-natural product allowed in my house!

    Clinique. Heftiest Hibiscus. Because lipstick crayons win for those of us who still have trouble filling in the lines. And I totally agree with Christina-Black Honey all the way. Like it's chapstick.

    I have a thing for red lipstick too. If you are not good at picking lipsticks, just go for MaxFactor. It's really long lasting and all the colours are beautiful!
