I missed getting a post up yesterday—it was so freaking hot in the city, our air conditioning isn’t working 100%, and I could barely think. Uggggh, I hate hot weather. I believe that if I had grown up in a hot place, I’d never have made it through school as my brain shuts down so badly when it’s very hot and humid. We’re talking a mere 27°C/80°F that will do it.
But hey, it’s only fitting that this month’s Ipsy Glam Bag (referral link) is posted on a Friday! It’s also much cooler today, thankfully.
And, once again, Ipsy sent me a Glam Bag that color-coordinates, in shades of bright aqua, bronze, and cherry red. I don’t know if it’s coincidental (or that a lot of their products this month just happen to coordinate), but it sure makes for a nice photo op.
Thanks to some referral points (many thanks to those who used my link!), I was also able to redeem some of my Ipsy points for a full sized Estée Lauder foundation.
