After six weeks in Hawaii, I have returned to the mainland. I’ve swapped the humid air and beautiful beaches for oven degree weather, traffic, and lots of smog. Don’t get me wrong, I love California, but after spending over a month in paradise it’s hard to come back to reality.
The blazing sun wasn’t the only thing that greeted me when I got back. Instead I’ve realized how much I have to do before graduation in less than 2 weeks. It wouldn’t be so bad if all I had to do was graduate, but instead I have a million papers to sign, I have to pay over $1,000 to take my boards and apply for a pharmacist license, I have student loans that will start to be due, I need to find a job, I have to get ready to host my entire family for a week…and to top it all off, I have to pack my entire house into a truck in a few weeks.
Several months ago, Sugar Daddy got the opportunity of a lifetime in Denver and we didn’t think twice about accepting the offer. We are certain that God is leading us to Colorado and He has great things in store for both of us.
So what does that mean? It means no more beautiful California sunshine. No more palm trees or warm weather. No more friends that I’ve known since college, no more familiarity. And sometimes I’m not so sure I can handle all of this change.
I’m receiving my doctorate degree in 11 days, I’m moving in 21 days, and I’m planning to take the hardest exam of my life in 90.
I just wish I could freeze 1 day.
Illamasqua: Zygomatic Cream Blush
Zygomatic has been on my wish list for quite some time now. I think Illamasqua makes the best cream blushes on the market, and I love their formulation. Every time Sephora has a VIB sale I always think “Hey! I need to pick up that one blush with the crazy name.”
Speaking of crazy names, do you even know what zygomatic means? It’s the scientific name of the cheekbone. I learned this in the Human Anatomy class I took in college (which we dissected a cadaver, but that’s a story for another day).
Anyway, this cream blush is unlike any other blush (cream or powder) that I own. The color is a muted pink beige that is actually really flattering on the skin. Unfortunately for me, the tan I picked up in Hawaii doesn’t allow this blush to show up as nice, but I know I’ll be getting tons of use from this color once I return to my normal pale self.
Believe the hype; Zygomatic is a beautiful cream blush in a very unique shade that warrants its place in any makeup junkie’s collection. And if you’re a biology nerd like me, you should just get it for the name.
Do you own any Illamasqua blushes? If so, which is your favorite?
