ben and stuart break

well, i feel like it has been a little while since i’ve put up some kitties. i’m guessing it’s been more like 3 days or something :::::checking archives:::::: wow! no! it’s been almost two weeks! time for some ben and stu indeed…

this morning i was attempting to take a picture of my newest kitty toy for etsy…the cats were helping
sniff sniff
paws, for scale

and here are the kids, waiting for me to put the toy back down (yeah right i’m going to put it down)

eating

the boys eating…this was the cute moment, before stuart threw up because he gorged himself on the food.

mixology makeup

i heard about mixology makeup on etsy through my friend natalie. she raved about the product (post here) and i looked into it but never ordered anything. never ordered anything, that is, until last week. i decided to order some samples after looking into mineral makeup further. i already use mineral foundation (bare minerals), but i did see some ingredients in bare minerals that i wasn’t thrilled with. it turns out mixology doesn’t use some of those ingredients, so i figured why not give it a try! i received my samples yesterday. i didn’t try the foundation yet (in the morning heading out the door isn’t the best time to try and find your foundation color) but i did try the eyeshadow and LOVED it! thanks to the ladies over at mixology! i can’t wait to give the foundation a try. i experienced pleasant correspondence (i wasn’t sure what foundation color samples to order) and quick turn-around on the shipment–i wouldn’t hesitate to order more products from them.
