So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains And we never even know we have the key. - Lyrics from Already Gone

27 June 2010

What I learned this week:

+ Apply HD concealer with a concealer/foundation brush. It makes the pores on your cheeks look smaller. I'm assuming it's because the bristles are able to deposit the make-up into the pore, instead of around it. *Thank you Smashbox make-up consultant, I'm really loving the HD concealer and I enjoyed your life story.*

+ Light a candle. If you're alone, reading a book or doing some homework..just light a nice scented candle. I do this a lot when I'm studying for exams, because I have bad anxiety and I find it calms me down. Lately, whenever I light my candle at my desk, I'm automatically programmed to study (which has become very helpful). Go program your candle for whatever mood you need.
+ Strangers believe in you more than you believe in yourself. Stop listening to your own thoughts, and make those strangers your friends.
+ The latest operating system update (iOS 4.0)  for the iPhone has a folder option. Minimalists rejoice!
