Salon day!


I’m still growing my hair out, but what was left in length was taken out in everywhere else! I love the color, heading for more auburn than brown this time. 🙂


NYC has come a long way

In my late teens and early 20s, when I was a broke kid, like many I used a lot of ELF and NYC products because they were cheap … not always the best product, but at the time I didn’t know any better. Once I got hooked on Mary Kay and CoverGirl, I stopped using the cheap stuff all together and haven’t given them a second thought since.

Last week I was at the drugstore getting a card, and was pursuing the cosmetics when I saw NYC colored eyeliner for 99 cents … I’ve been eager to get some purple, but reluctant to pay $3-5 for something I’ll wear every now and again. But for 99 cents, it’s worth a try.

So NYC has come a long way since I was using it in the early 2000s. The packaging looks like CoverGirl and other mid to high end brands, and goes on nice and smooth with even color.

I’m sold! I think I’ll have to pick up some more colors the next time I’m at the drugstore.


It’s a purple day today.
