E-readers are the best!!! I love that I can take a zillion books with me while traveling and take up no extra space. The only drawback is that it’s WAY too easy to make impulse purchases (i.e. Amazon One-Click). 😉

1. What posters or pictures did you have on your walls growing up?
Mostly musicians . . . . not so much crushes, just music I liked: Depeche Mode, the Smiths, the Cure.

2. Are you finding it hard to find your HG foundation? If so, why?
I’ve been fairly lucky in this area. Make Up Forever HD is great for me. It offers good coverage yet doesn’t really look like I’m wearing foundation. For more casual days, I like Physician’s Formula Super BB.

3. I’m thinking…
. . . that there’s nothing like that first cup of coffee on a Sunday morning, when I linger as long as I want.

4. Super-skinny or very thick brows?
Somewhere in between, as long as they look natural and are nicely arched. A monthly brow shaping from an aesthetician is one of the best investments I ever started making.

5. What do you think of red eyeshadow?
Not my thing!

Laurie, I couldn’t agree more. They are so convenient, but they also make it hard to resist the temptation to impulse buy. At least ebooks are cheaper, and no book is ever a waste of money. 😉
