It’s time for everyone’s favorite game: “Find that Odor!” [queue the music and applause]

It’s not the trash, diapers, dishwasher, sink or fridge. Thank goodness it’s not too pungent and is just kind of sweet. Still. I’d like it to go away. I’ve been cleaning everything possible in my kitchen today. I even dumped salt down the garbage disposal.

In not non-pleasant news, I received an order today from Sephora.com. I didn’t go to the Clinique counter because I had an online gift certificate and thought I’d make use of it. It was only for $10 though and after you add in the mega shipping (six bucks and it took a week from date of order) I saved a whopping $3.00 and change. I figured out why they charge so much for shipping, I ordered a 5oz bottle of make-up remover which is roughly 6-inches tall. The box it came in is 9 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ x 9″ and it was packed to the gills with tissue paper. Completely unnecessary and not environmentally friendly at all. Last time I order from them, that’s for sure.

Last night I gave myself a long overdue facial. I usually use an exfoliating scrub once a week but I hadn’t used a cleansing mask in forever. My face felt so damn smooth. This morning it still felt so wonderful that I couldn’t bear to make-up on after I washed my face. Au natural today which is unusual for me. I’m not fond of the non-makeup look for me and on the rare occasions I go without I tend to finally put some on in the afternoon when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror. But today, I’ve pulled my bangs back for whatever reason and honestly I don’t mind the non-makeup look with my hair like this. Hopefully my skin will enjoy the day off.

Smells and shallow talk, that’s what you get at the Anc Fam today folks. Enjoy.
