As we were parking the car for dinner Saturday night, caught some nice sunset action. #nofilter as the kids say.
It was one of those catching-up-with-myself weekends, lots of errands run, loads of laundry done and very little time sitting down at the computer.
Did manage to slip in for a mani-pedi, first time in weeks. My neighborhood nail salon is Old School…no spa bowls or massage chairs, but the women who work there are very nice (and most have been there for years), the prices are reasonable, they have steady clientele and often all 8 chairs are full. There’s a TV which is always on, but no cable, so we watch one of the three local broadcast stations. On Saturday mornings it’s kids shows, and Saturday afternoons, that usually means College Sports. Went with OPI Big Apple Red this time for a bit of brightness. A regular polish manicure usually lasts me just a few days; once it starts to chip I remove the whole shebang. I don’t have the time or patience to maintain polish on my fingers, but enjoy while it lasts.
We had a lovely dinner Saturday night at a newish place not too far from us, called The Wallace. (Angelenos take note: this one’s worth making a reservation.) Very, very good food in the “small plates” format. It’s perfect for the two of us, as neither of us can stomach big heavy meals anymore. The wine list looked interesting, but I was intrigued by the beers and enjoyed a nice ale on tap, served blissfully at room temperature. We’ll definitely be going back…there was so much on the menu we wanted to try and the few dishes we did sample were excellent. The fresh oysters were out of this world, as was the jar of duck rillettes.
A friend of mine loves this Bobbi Brown brow shaper and recommended it when we spoke last week. I stopped by Nordstrom and tried it out, and yes it’s quite good, especially if you want a soft and natural look. If your brows are very sparse like mine you can use over a bit of pencil or powder for a stronger brow or alone for a more natural look and it holds everything in place nicely (if you have brows with a mind of their own, you might want to try this). Also can be used as a root touch up on hair in between colorings.
I’m narrowing down my search for a spinner suitcase, and will have a side-by-side comparison of the two front-runners on Wednesday, so do check back. I’ve been receiving requests for capsule wardrobe suggestions for various destinations and climates, and am working on those too.
Did you do anything fun or special over the weekend?
