Yesterday afternoon’s surprise

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

As you all know, I sent my first ever necklace to Suzie a while back. She let me know, yesterday, that she received it!! Here are photos of the finished product (Suzie: lmk if you want me to take them down, and/or send them to you) I’m glad she liked it!(Don’t worry, I can do more conservative for orders!)

Detailing on one of the keys: The other thing, though, was I received her end. I told her to just send me whatever – I love a good surprise. She sent me an Australian copy of my favourite mag, which arrived first, and also this:My reaction when I saw the package in the mailbox, of course, was that of any product junkie: oh my god large package!! *drool* The contents follow.
Everything looks super-amazing, and I already have product photos of a few of them. Don’t worry – you’ll get reviews! (see? Everyone benefits when Rae gets goodies!)

In other related goodie news, I received two MUA packages recently. This means reviews of BeneTint, Laura Geller’s Eye Stay duo, and more, sometime in the future.

I’m excited!

Note: The “cosmetics” tag has been broken down into bits. This is, in part, for your convenience. However, it was 95% pure, undiluted OCD.

  • Makeup: base this contains posts on foundation, concealers, primers, and powders.
  • Makeup: cheeks – my favourite category! I love my blushers :)
  • Makeup: eyes. Eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, and so fourth. I’m not sure how this will go, though, as I don’t wear a lot of eye makeup. I was blessed (coughcursedcough) with very sensitive eyes, and I touch them frequently (I yawn, they water buckets. And I am always tired.)
  • Makeup: lips is the clickable key to all things lippie. Lipsticks, lipglosses, lip conditioners, and my favourite – lip stains – can all be found (someday) here.
  • Makeup: nails turned out larger than I would have expected (more than half of it is still unpublished as of yet… they’re all missing tiny pieces, like a link or formatting. I’ll get around to it when needed.) I’m not a polish junkie by any means, but I do like shiny things…
  • Finally, Makeup: other has everything that doesn’t fit nicely under one of the above labels. Posts that span categories, hauls, lemmings, etc.

As you can tell, the categories don’t have many posts in them. This will change with time, though… I promise :P

Enjoy your organized browsing, girls and… girls!

Microsoft is going to put in a “privacy mode” in their next version of IE (version eight?) Currently, they have made patent applications for two things: “Cleartracks” and “Inprivate”. Publicly, they are saying:

Users may wish to turn on the privacy mode if they are planning a surprise party, buying presents or researching a medical condition and do not want others users of the same computer to find out.

However, we know the truth. If I may be so rash as to translate this excerpt for you?

The men of Microsoft wish to have a button that they can click when they don’t want their wives to know what they are searching for. Fat, old, middle-aged men are creating a market for privacy with all their porn surfing!

That’s right, kids. I am excited that Firefox is working for one of these, as well (the other biggie, Safari, already has theirs… it’s all that damn Mac awesomeness.) Why? If my internet blocks out things so no one knows what I’m doing…no one in my family can possibly know about theNotice. It’s fabulous!
