Lip Oils by lilah b.
Let’s put on some lip oil!
Question for you — have you ever seen a lip oil in a rollerball? Every single one I’ve tried has a wand inside a tube, and there’s normally an oversized doe foot, like the one from the original O.G. lip oils by Clarins.
You’d think a lip oil with a rollerball would be convenient because it has one less element? Ikke sant? But, I don’t know, I worry about the oil getting goopy and the rollerball just getting messy… If you’ve ever seen one in the history of ever, let me know.
These lip oils here are from a local Marin county brand called lilah b. (all lowercase).
The tubes look much darker than they do in these pics, FYI. For the pics below, I brightened the lighting to give you a better idea of what the colors look like on lips, but in real life the tubes look incredibly dark, nearly unwearable.

Anywho, in other news…I had to get some jeans because I looked down one day, and all of mine either had snags in them from Rosie’s claws, or stains, and even though I loathe clothes shopping, I made myself go to Banana Republic factory because there’s one nearby in town, and I’d be able to try stuff on and return it there if I had to.
Little backstory, but I’ve been putting off getting jeans for a really long time. I’ve tried to find some online, but as convenient as online shopping is, it normally doesn’t work out for me when it pertains to clothing because, when I actually get the clothes, there’s always one thing — at least one thing — wrong with them.
Invariably, once they get to my house, I think to myself, oh, I can deal with this one wrong thing, so I end up keeping the items, but then I’m plagued by that one wrong thing, and I never end up wearing what I actually buy.

So, I’m making myself actually, physically go into stores to try stuff on, even though it’s really the last thing I want to do.
All this is to say that I found some pants with potential at Banana Republic Factory. They’re called the high-rise slim jean, and they were 60% off in store, but apparently 75% off online. and I don’t hate them. Ennå.
I actually have a pair on ideal now… They still have the identifies and stickers on, too. I’m just gonna wear them around the house for the next few hours to see if I can tolerate them.
So far, high rise, run big, skinny without being skin-tight like leggings, so they’re a little looser around the thighs and calves. Overall, I give ’em a thumb…sideways. I don’t know if I like them or not.
Other than that, I’ve got dance mommy tasks today because Connor has her first onstage performance coming up in, goodness gracious, two years? I’m going to bring her to rehearsals today, and then her performance is tomorrow.
It’s a sunny day here this weekend, but I hear there’s some rain coming. What’s the weather like out your way?
Ya know, I’m not shocked to see Biologique Recherche P50 toner on this list of the ten most-recommended products. I need to get myself another bottle ASAP!

Oh, the early aughts…
Talk to me, doc.
This looks cool.
I was obsessed with Pat Benetar when I was a kid.

I want to go shopping with you, Isimeme.
