Encounters of the "rad" kind that I feel everyone who has cool taste should know about.

Girly Goods.

For those of you that like to wear makeup but rarely venture out of the local drugstore cosmetics isle for fear of spending a boatload of money on products you might not like, I've got a couple that are worth your time and $. I tend to have a nice shiny face by the end of the day and my eyeshadow is forever creasing and smearing on my lids as the hours tick by. I took my first trip to Sephora the other day and the saleswoman recommended Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion and I did my first test run today. I am now home from a long day at work and there is not a smudge or crease to be seen! It really is magic! If you're in the market for a crease-proofer, this stuff is definitely for you.

Also, I've read reviews about Tarte cosmetics and have always thought they seemed pretty cool. I picked up some Tarte Cheek Stain in "Flush" and some Slide Tin Lip Balm and they too rock my world. The cheek stain looks like it would be totally too bright, but gives you just a hint of color when rubbed in. The lip balm in "mouth off" gives a nice hint of color too and is not at all sticky. The best beauty tip I ever got? Go to a Sephora and play with all of the goodies before you buy them! It's not only totally girly and fun, but practical, as you can see exactly what these goodies will look like when you put them on...before you buy them.

Awesome Prints

Jeremy Prasatik over at jp33 has some amazingly awesome prints for sale. His prices are totally reasonable and I ordered this one to hang in the new house moments after finding his site. I have a feeling I'll be a regular customer...

Of note, I found his website through my favorite Neat-O type site Awesome. They post links to cool things they've seen on a regular basis and have led me to some of my coolest purchases/discoveries.

Becky visited recently and we were busy picking up various items for her to send to her swap parter for the Color-iffic Swap-o-rama. This is a color theme swap in which participates send their partner a fantastic package full of goodies in that month's color scheme. You can find this swap and plenty more at Swap-Bot. It's free to sign up and start participating. I have to make myself stop reading about them because I've already signed up for three! I'm looking forward to getting some goodies in the mail and to creating some things for my partners!

Cattiness at its best

I recently discovered sites such as Go Fug Yourself and Snarkywood. I'm probably the last to know about them, but they are great for a laugh during the workday! Let me know if you know of any other sites I should check out!
