Hello my darlings. Today, the world decided to go mad. I should have expected it, I know. We are on the first week back from a major holiday, November just ended and month’s ends are always a bit crazed. I think though that a lot of people flipped the calendar page today, realized that there were no more pages to flip this year and that a chunk of the month will be taken up by people taking days off for holiday adventures.
It seems to have made everyone I work with determined to get everything needed to get done before the end of the year set up before the middle of the month. I can’t even count the number of times I heard, ‘and it can be done before the 15th, right?’
I am pretty sure the next two weeks will be absolute insanity.
My two scheduled phone calls blossomed into about eighteen. Luckily most people have given up on the obsession with video conferencing, at least where I am concerned, so none of the calls involved video. Which is good because I never got around to putting on any makeup.
I did manage a set of under eye patches. It was a bitter sweet moment. I used my long term favorite ones, the Grace and Stella energy drink for your eyes, under eye patches. They were my allergy season life saver. However I hit them pretty hard. And while I loved putting them on today, I discovered that this was the last one I had. I have lots of single sets of eyepatches that came in subscription boxes that I need to use up, but no more of my favorites. I actually need to use the singles up before I order more, but with the sales going on it is really hard to resist. I think I may order a pack and set them aside to use after I use up the singles. I may even try the new pink ones to see if they are as good as the original.
Oh speaking of masks. December is the month I am going to go back to using up my sheet masks so that I can clear out the old and restock with the new. So Monday through Thursday there will be a Sheet mask each afternoon, with Friday being my regular Face Mask Friday.
Today’s sheet mask is the Elmolu Day Nature Mask. It is an energizing mask and hopefully it will do the trick. I’m keeping a list of the masks and my thoughts on them to post at the end of the month, in case you are wondering. This particular mask came to me in a Facetory subscription. If you aren’t looking for subscriptions, Facetory has a store where you can just purchase face masks of all varieties. (There is a huge Cyber Week Sale going on if you are looking for extra discounts). They are very reasonably priced and I have started building my list of favorites so that I know exactly what I ant to order from them in the future. I have actually been surprised by some of the ones that have made the reordering list. Whether this one will or not, remains to be seen as I will use it later today. And in case you are wondering most of the sheet masks I buy tend to either come from Facetory or The Masque Bar. It is just really easy to place an order for multiple masks from different companies with them instead of running all over the place. Facetory even has sheet masks from Challans de Paris which is a skin care brand I really enjoy. I didn’t realize they actually had sheet masks until I saw them on Facetory actually.
I’m going to try to remember to list the sheet mask of the day during the week this month, along with the daily makeup. However today, there was no daily makeup. Just my last pair of Grace and Stella Eye patches and an upcoming sheet mask. Tomorrow though, tomorrow there will be makeup. And walking. The calls made me skip my daily exercise as well today so there will probably be extra walking tomorrow as well.
But for now, it is back to work for me. I hope your day runs a little but more smoothly.
