1. Trish McEvoy Bare Eye Base Essentials.
Will someone please explain to me how I lived 24 years without this? I bought a Trish brush to apply it with (their brushes are the best, bar none) and it goes on amazingly smooth. It makes smoky eyes a cinch even for make-up novices such as myself.
2. The gym.
I went to the gym today in the rain. THE RAIN. I loathe rain. I do everything possible to avoid it. Yet, somehow, I had one of the best workouts of my life today. (Okay, fine, the gym is only a block away. But you're talking to a gal who formerly would have rather walked on pins and needles than actually exercise. It's kind of a big deal.)
Hey, if I'm going to be single, I might as well look good doing it.
Which brings me to...
3. The realization that it's better to find your bridesmaids before you meet the groom.
My birthday reminded me just how lucky I am to have so many great girlfriends. So while I wait for Mr. Right, at least I have a lot of gorgeous gals to keep me company in the meantime. :)
