I've never owned a white swimsuit before, mostly because I feel like white + water = peepshow. However, I bet the quality and structuring of Anthro swimsuits would be superb. Anyway, I would probably pass on the plain bottoms and pick something from J. Crew; I like their twist-front bikini bottoms, which are available in white. I like the simplicity of the top, but it's also sufficiently unique. The cut-out at the neckline adds a bit of sexiness, whereas the peplum flounce services to hide a tummy and give a demureness to the whole thing.

Yeah, I know it's January. In Boston. But it's good to plan ahead. Also, I was shopping on Newbury Street today and I saw a bunch of Dolce Vita shoes, so I feel like the Universe is telling me to buy these shoes. Just kidding.
But I still want these sandals.
They're a bit pore polished and socially acceptable than my Rainbows. Also, British people really frown upon flip-flops. Did you know that?

They're comfy, have good non-slip soles and are warm and furry. They are a bit loose, but they have no half-sizes, so it is what it is. Unfortunately, like other moccasins, they can get a bit grungy and gross after a few weeks of wear. However, they will work for the winter and at this price, you can't expect them to last forever.
However, interest does not equal knowledge. Although it seems kind of ridiculous to buy a book about makeup application, it kind of makes sense. This is one of the most highly rated books on Amazon for makeup, although I have never heard of it. I worry because it was published in the '90s, and that's really not the dated look I'm looking for.

This mascara was only so-so. It didn't clump, so that was good. But it also didn't do much of anything else. My lashes just looked slightly longer and darker than normal. There was maybe a slight curl. I'll keep using the tube for an everyday natural look until it runs out, but I'm not going to buy a new tube (certainly not at $21).
The only thing that set this mascara apart was the very flexible brush with lots of tiny bristles. It felt like more mascara was going on and that it prevented clumping. I think that this mascara brush would go great with a better formula.
tl;dr: You're better off with the pink and green tube.
I can't remember the last time I wanted something so badly. This shit was hand-blended in a monastery in the Czech Republic. Come on. In a goddamn monastery! The reviews are sparse but glowing. I highly suspect that there might be stem cells in this stuff, which is why they have to outsource it to Eastern Europe. I'm okay with it.
