It’s been a good day today.
Because my Sephora order arrived.
A week ago, Sephora emailed me an advertisement for a travel kit from Drunk Elephant – a brand my kid adores.
So I snapped it up for her.
Naturally, I added a few items for myself.
Because you know. . . I’m a sucker for cosmetics and skin care.
I bought two eyeshadow palettes.
Nevermind that I already have about fifty of them.
Those little pots of pressed color that shimmer and glisten really lure me in.
So I got some.
I must be in a violet mood, because I bought Violet Voss’ fun-sized palette in Sweet Violet and Urban Decay’s Naked Palette in Ultraviolet.
My order came with two samples – one for a face cream and other for a perfume by Sol de Janeiro.
Sol de Janeiro has turned their famous fragrance from their Brazilian Bum Bum Cream into a perfume and IT SMELLS LIKE THE PEAK OF SUMMER IN THE TROPICS.
Vanilla, caramel, pistachio and a hint of jasmine.
It’s just like those sneaky people at Sephora to drop a luscious sample into my order so that I’m forced into trying it and falling in love with it.
I am helpless to resist it.
Mind you, I haven’t bought it yet but I certainly went online and stuck it in my basket to buy at a later date.
It may seem insane in the middle of a pandemic to be shopping online for cosmetics, but hey. . . I’m not feeling my best, I’m a little depressed, and I have a lot of anxiety so I’ll take relief from the daily grind any way I can.
Even if it’s a virtual beach in Brazil that is calling my name.
