Liebster Award

The lovely Audrey from Blushable Me tagged me for the Liebster award forever ago! I promised I’d do it the next time I was questing for procrastination fodder, but I ended up procrastinating on my procrastination and… But anyway, here it is! The Liebster is a cute meme-cum-questionnaire that’s been making the rounds among the beauty blogging community– once tagged, you answer some questions furnished by your tagger, and then you pay it forward by nominating three other blogs you like and providing the with questions of your own. Having been tagged, I feel like I’ve Made It as a small-time indie beauty blogger! liebster-award1

Sale Alert! TheBalm on Hautelook

Makeup and skincare from vintage-inspired beauty line theBalm is going for 50% off on Hautelook right now! They share my taste for corny puns– it’s amazing how many things sound like “balm” if you believe in yourself and try!). The vaguely utopic retro imagery also speaks to me. Basically I like them a lot.

Their shadyLady range isn’t available, nor is the newly released Balmsai palette. But you can get almost all their other goodies, including the cult hit Mary Lou-manizer highlighter. At least till Tuesday!
