Friday Question

Happy Friday everyone!

How did this week treat you? My week was pretty good. It poured rain the first few days of the week, which is fine because we really need it. But now the sun has come out, things are drying up, and I am happy!

Any hot weekend plans? I think me and Mr. VV are going to try and go to the Alameda Antiques Fair, which they hold on the first Sunday of every month. They have over 800 vendors, which seems mind-boggling! Maybe I’ll find some cool treasures.

So here’s my Friday question for ya.

Are You a Sucker for Packaging?

Do you ever find yourself lusting after or purchasing products you will never use and/or definitely don’t need, specifically for the packaging?

I did this recently with the Physician’s Formula Nude Wear Blushes. The packaging looks so much like the MAC Making Pretty collection I could not resist!

Question of the Day

Cat Reading

Today is Veterans Day in the US so I’m kind of taking it easy and hanging at home with MY own personal Veteran, Mr. VV! And if you are into lucky numbers today’s date is 11-11 and this post went live at 11:11. :)

Whatcha reading lately?

I recently finished The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling) and liked it. Now I am onto a book called The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. It’s just ok so far, I can’t get completely into it for some reason.

I did get sidetracked by reading a sample of Hatching Twitter by Nick Bolton, which is the true story of how Twitter came about. I only read 25 pages and was hooked immediately. I will probably buy that one once I’m finished with the other.
