can i get an amen?

Today I'm gonna give ya a little love.
And then a little hate.
Because I can't let things get too fluffy around here...

I LOVE that Sephora is having a sale online!
I mean, how often do you get a store's e-mail in your inbox and it's...USEFUL!?!
I get at least 3,489 e-mails a day from Sephora, Bed Bath, Victoria's Secret, JCrew, Asian Dating services (what??) etc. etc. etc. and usually...SNORE.
But Sephora has restored my faith in being on so many subscriber lists.
Because they had a sale.
And it was a beast.
My favorite Stila tinted moisturizer and my favorite Bare Escentuals mascara were both magically on major sale.
The makeup gods have spoken.
And I am officially in their good graces.
Check it out lovas.

Oh and while we're at it...does anyone have a cream blush or tint stick that they can't live without and would recommend to a sista from anotha mista? 
I'm not in the mood to correctly spell any words ending in "er" today, sorry.
I've heard good things about the Nars Multiple but I'd love some more suggestions.

Onto the next one.
I HATE how super short dresses are these days.
I mean, can a girl just find a hemline that allows for sitting down all?
Am I the only one that wants to wear a dress without putting on a show?
I just want something a few inches about the knee.
Is that too much to ask?
Well, apparently it is.
Stores seem to focus mostly on the under 5'3 crowd.
I'm 5'7 and it is a rare day on earth when I can find a cute dress that doesn't hang right below my tush.
So to Forever 21, Lulus, H&M, boutiques in Lexington, etc:
Please teach your buyers to round up some dresses for girls like me who want to keep it a little ladylike but not have to put on a muumuu.
That'd be fab.


  1. I'm 5'3" and I have the same problem with dresses! I'd like to be able to pick something up from the ground without having to worry about my dress being too short! Argh

  2. I'm with you on the dresses, I've got a 'donk and they just aren't working for me....

  3. @Caitlin, what is the world coming to if even petite girls like you can't get a ladylike dress? We must boycott! haha.

    @Emily, thank you! This time of year I'm just ready for fall/winter...bring on the jeans and tights with dresses so I can stop stressin'. Sheesh.
