te gusta?

I've moved on from booties. They are cute, but decidedly a little bit odd looking. Here's my new project. What do you think? I'm hoping to try it on baby niece Z (there is a toddler Z too, different sides of the family...)this weekend. Since it's just a prototype, made with yarn and ribbon that i just had around, hopefully future cloches will be even more adorable. I may even make one for myself, as well as my now 5 nieces. I may eben take requests...

I hinted around my new found love of mineral makeup. Let me elaborate.
It's really expensive, but so worth it. It cost $60 to get a starter kit. It comes with two shades of foundation, "warmth," a.k.a. bronzer, mineral veil, two big brushes, and a concealer brush. It also came with a free lipstick and free eyeshadow, since I bought it at the new boutique at the local mall.
Pretty much it feels like you're wearing nothing, and looks like you're wearing nothing, while still offering coverage. That sounds confusing, but what I mean is that hides all your imperfections, while allowing the beautiful side of your skin to shine through. It looks like you have flawless, makeup free skin. Who doesn't want that? Everyone should find a local boutique and get a "make-under." The brushes are so soft, it's like a mini face massage. Anyway, if you try it, you'll want to buy it. I hear the starter kit lasts for like, a year, which makes the cost not so terribly concerning.
