Saturday Musings

I saw these last week and forgot about them, but I love these skull desert plates from Pottery Barn.  They intend them for use at Halloween, but they have kind of an awesome Goth vibe that could be good all year.  Or certainly for Day of the Dead.  They also had pretty awesome Glitter Skulls that could totally join my decor any day.

Today I spent about an hour in Sephora trying to find a good orange/red lipstick, and left dissatisfied.  The best option was Nars Heat Wave, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.  I decided that part of the problem could be my skin tone and the fact that my lips are pretty pink naturally, which toned down the orange-ness a lot.  Then, since I wasn't fully convinced it was the right shade, and I more or less want it just because of how awesome this girl looked in it with that trench coat (Camille from Childhood Flames, the girl on the left in the first photo) I decided that I shouldn't pay $24 bucks for it and should look for a drugstore brand.  So the search continues.  


  1. I still can't believe that months after I left ABQ, you all have both a Sephora AND an Anthro. It truly blows my mind.

    I'll keep an eye out for a good orange-red, though :-)

  2. Thanks Maggie. Its certainly nice to have both stores-- if only that had put Sephora in next to Anthro, it'd be perfect. I hate having to go to Coronado!
