That is Connor’s birthday Caboodle, and it’s crammed with jewellery and make-up. 🙂
Can any individual please clarify the maintain that Caboodles have on us? Effectively, at the least the maintain Caboodles have on me, ha ha ha!
I do know technically it’s only a cute plastic field to carry make-up and miscellaneous doo-dads, however for some motive I really feel a powerful emotional grip each time one is round.
Possibly it’s as a result of my Caboodle was such a giant a part of my childhood.
Ahh, make-up. I put some on as we speak as a result of I had a video assembly to current a giant advertising and marketing deck (yup, I wrote it!), and nothing appears to assuage my nerves like a bit of little bit of face paint.
I’m carrying taupe, brown, bronze and peach shades from the Sunkissed Getaway Eye and Face Palette by Wander Magnificence.
It has a bunch of eyeshadows and cheek powders for breezy bronze appears. When you’re the kind of one that likes shadows that don’t make you’re employed too exhausting, you would possibly prefer it.
Please observe the chocolate brown liner on my water strains, which is Cave gel liner by Hourglass. Fairly, yeah?
I just like the richness of the pigment, and the way it’s not too pink. Stays on all day, too. I believe I discovered a brand new staple!
I’ve a variety of deadlines on Friday, so I gotta get again to it. Earlier than I head out although, these are the cupcakes I made for Connor’s cat-themed celebration on the Marin Humane society.
The ladies stored asking of the cats had been edible, LOL! (They completely had been, by the way in which.)
I debated lengthy and exhausting between frosting them the night time earlier than or the morning of the celebration, which by the way in which, began at 10:30.
Facet observe, if it’s important to plan a two hour celebration for a kid, and so they provide you with a selection between a morning or afternoon slot, morning is the way in which to go IMHO.
I want taking Connor to morning events as a result of that means we nonetheless have the remainder of the day to do different issues, and if she’s nonetheless hungry after the celebration, we will go on to lunch.
The place was I? Oh, frosting. I wasn’t positive when to frost as a result of the frosting was buttercream which I created from scratch, and it contained heavy whipping cream and butter, so I wasn’t positive if I might go away them out in a single day.
I requested my buddy Allison from my bakery days what to do, and he or she prompt frosting them the night time earlier than, popping them into the fridge, after which taking them out within the morning very first thing so they may come to room temperature earlier than serving, which is what I ended up doing.
Just a few cupcake FYI for ya from knowledgeable baker!
Blissful Wednesday to you, and I hope the remainder of the week treats you kindly.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
