This has been my last 12 hours: I couldn’t sleep very well and when I did, I was negotiating visual space in a store to remerchandise their floor. If you have worked with me, I know you have had this dream. Teeny woke up at 4:45 a.m. and after feeding him, I walked into a wall. It has been a while since I have done that. I couldn’t sleep after that so I got up to make coffee and could not, for the life of me, figure out why I was only pouring water after I had clearly been signaled that the coffee was done. It turns out, if you do not pour the water from the carafe into the machine, coffee doesn’t happen. I redid my effort and then put Splenda into my coffee. With cream in hand, I was confused as to how the top of the Splenda container got on top of my coffee cup. Yup, it’s that kind of morning. Teeny is sleeping and I am still awake. Needless to say, I have circles under my eyes that are terrifying and I should not drive a car today.
When I was little my mom used to tell me how she hated dark circles under her eyes. I remember being very afraid of this condition, as if it were a disease. I am so happy that it is not a disease, or painful, because I too suffer from it. I have found a miracle concealer that I get very excited to use, and even better, it’s a total bargain. I have tried so many concealers; Lancome, MAC, YSL, Kat Von D (huge fail), and none of them work as well as….Cover Girl. Yep. Cover Girl Concealer Balm, with Olay. It comes in a lipstick shape and goes on incredibly smooth and creamy, but not oily. My dark circles magically disappear for at least 6 hours. Now, with the way my day has been going so far, I am hoping I do not confuse this magic balm with real lipstick under my eyes. Wouldn’t that be pretty?
