Good morning, beautiful. Happy Saturday to you. How was your week? Mine was long and filled with SO. A LOT. ADULTING. Being a grownup is so much harder than it was portrayed in ’80s sitcoms. LOL! Needless to say, I’m glad the weekend is finally here, and yay! — the heatwave that roasted Northern California is now officially over. I woke up this morning to a gorgeous overcast sky and 70 degree temps, and it was the best thing ever.
On a beauty-related note, I’ve been thinking a lot about blush lately. It’s one of my favorite makeup things, and ya know, I never get tired of it. I love all the textures and finishes and formulas, and oh, the colors. SO MANY! All this week I’ve felt stretched to my limit between work, parenting and life, but whenever I took a minute to put a little blush on, I felt better. Blush has that power!
There’s just something about having a beautiful flush of color on my cheeks that makes me feel good. Plus, it’s an easy boost, you know? It doesn’t have the application challenges that come with eyeshadow or eyeliner on my progressively more hooded lids, for instance. I can just swipe a little on and in less than 30 seconds, I feel like a completely different person.
Would it be weird to have a beauty blog that just talked about blush? Because honestly, I could talk about it all day, every day.
Most of the blushes in my current collection are venturing into “vintage” territory, so I wouldn’t mind doing a major blush refresh. I went to Sephora yesterday and contemplated the old standbys that I know and adore, like NARS Deep Throat and the Hourglass Ambients, but I think it’s time for some new things.
If you have a blush you’re crushing on right now, please let me know in the comments.

Where I’ve been mentally all week long during the heat wave in California.
The glasses, the bob…
Love this makeup.
Chanel all day!
I have a friend who keeps talking about this brand, so I’m doing some research.
Because I never get tired of learning about sunscreen.
I’m off to make another Nespresso because it’s the weekend, and my idea of going wild now is having two coffee drinks on a Saturday. Have a great rest of your day.
