obnoxiously awesome.

I spent the day shopping at NW 23rd today, with one of my amazing co-workers, Kirsten. Rain, Coffee and trash talk. Yeah, it was pretty great.




We stopped by Urban Outfitters where I scored a super cute dress,


This would be really cute with some different tights and oxfords. Love! Now If it would only stop raining.
We also stopped by MAC, which was the main reason we went to NW 23rd in the first place. I secretly avoid going to any MAC mall counter, the stores are so much better. I didn't really get anything exciting, got a new lipstick, and lip pencil. I love their lip products so much, although I feel like their lipstick do dry out my lips sometimes. Any advice as far as a base to apply before the lipstick to make it last all day? I asked at the store, but she pretty much just told me to get their lip primer, which I already have, and I don't feel like it does anything at all.



I started a new painting yesterday at work, pictures to come soon! I've also been really inspired to embroider lately. So I will have some cute craft related things to post soon, promise!

I hope you guys had a wonderful day!
xoxo.

Thanks for your super sweet comment about my brows ;)
I use this http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P202633&categoryId=S10515&shouldPaginate=true

I used the Sephora brand for a while, but then they changed it and it now sucks lol

For a lipstick base, I always use vanilla Softlips. It has the perfect slippery consistency that never gets waxy and it smells yum!

I always use a lipbalm, then lip liner to make sure that my lipstick stays in place. It always works out for normal wear, but it's gone by the time I eat anything.
