*Sponsored by Monrovia Time for garden planting!! Eerrr, planning. OK, if you live somewhere NOT in a frozen tundra, then you are probably planting in March. In Minnesota, we have a rule of not putting anything in the ground until after Mother’s Day. Mid-May is generally safe from snow other than that weird last blizzard that always melts within hours. Because of our challenging climate, we have to get creative ….
My apologies if the image is blurry. I had PRK 12 days ago and cannot really see anything yet.

- Naked Cosmetics Heavy Metal #04 – value $14.99
Total value around $80.09
This is one of those bags that seems high value due to the laughably high priced vitamin c serum. Don’t get me wrong, I like Mintpear, and I like the serum. I just laugh at the price. The Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank brush is funny. It is fun and I feel like I am back in 1987. I received the ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil in show me, which is a coppery color. The Naked Cosmetics Heavy Metal #04 is also copper. Copper seems to be the in thing right now since there is so much copper jewelry out now. I am kind of torn on it. When I look at it, I think it seems dated and like it belongs on an “autumn” colored person, but it actually looks fine with my black hair and green eyes. I think copper might be one of those rare universal colors depending on the tone. I like the texture or the creme gel liner, but the pencil only lasts about three applications. It is only $5, but I would rather not need a new one each week! I have not tried the Lara Bingle LB Cream on my face yet since I won’t be able to assess how it looks with my poor vision at the moment.
