Ode to El
Monday, April 20th, 2009
My brother in law Chris, and his girlfriend Eleanor live in Dubai. Remember them? We had the most fun 3 1/2 weeks ever with them last November. I wish we lived closer, we get a long so well. This weekend a little surprise late birthday present from them arrived in the mail. Boy, it was a good one.
Slicked Pink is the color, and it is perfect. I love this little ‘pick me up’, a new lip gloss, and it isn’t the kinda thing I often buy myself. (it’s not that I don’t deprive myself of nice things…make up is just usually the last thing on the list.) I am one of those people who only buys make up when I’m flying internationally and go crazy at Duty Free while I’m bored. The result is that the colors are always a bit weird, never the normal shades they have at the department stores. Anyway, I’m going to be wearing this all the time, it smells nice too!
This book. Such a fun read, I can’t wait to start it. It’s like Sex & the City of Saudi Arabia, so interesting, perfect coming from Chris & El in the Middle East!
The baby mini pink Moleskine Volante notebooks. How adorably cute are these? I love them!
Thanks Chris & El, you two are the best! Everyone else, if you are needing a birthday gift, copy this one, it was perfect! 🙂
