Happy Winter Solstice! The kids had their last day of school for the year yesterday and we are officially in the holiday zone over here. Hanukkah starts tomorrow night, and of course Christmas is on Wednesday, and we’re looking forward to a week of related festivities. No travel for us this year – unless you count a few trips into Manhattan — and we’ll be spending a lot of cozy time at home with games, books, puzzles, latkes, and these. Posting will be sporadic over through New Year’s Day, but I’ll definitely be popping in with some new content at some point and, of course, the forums will be active as usual. In the meantime, here are a few things from around the web that may interest you:

    I tried that eyeliner pen that has a stamp on one end for the wing, so you just stamp the wing on and then draw a line to connect it with the other end of the pen. I’m good with skin and makeup, but I’m not someone who can draw a straight line … but this actually works.

    here it is

    It comes in 3 sizes of wing and I got the smallest one. The wing is legit and I find I can draw the connecting line fine with the marker thingy. I’ve done it 3 or 4 times now and really like it.

      Ooh, I’ll have to try that. I love eyeliner but suck at applying it.

        I really really really suck, so I always stuck to pencil and didn’t F with liquid, but if I can do this, you def can. For your NYE look!

    Okay, here’s another thing. A couple months ago I didn’t like how my eyelashes were looking, and I bought a highly-reviewed yet inexpensive serum on Amazon. I noticed pretty quickly that it was working, but now I know for sure because my aunt just asked me what I did to my eyelashes. I think she thought I got fake ones or something, but no! Just this serum and doing the curler for 10 seconds with each clamp, then some Benefit Roller Lash mascara.

    Also, it’s never gotten in my eyes or caused irritation or anything.
