On a much lighter note, I got a sweet surprise in the mail

In the midst of this mess, my friend Eimear who is so wonderful and strong, sent me this wonderful treat: a Tata Harper Try Me Kit.

Eimear and I met through Twitter (although she’s on hiatus now) and she has done some guest posts here.

Success! I have become higher maintenance.

I even used the Snapchat beauty filter (OK, a lot).

But now I want to start using eye cream. These long trips have me feeling puffy. Any recommendations?

Update: I bought this toner today and will let you know how I like it.

Update #2: I got a sample of this Sunday Riley cream and loved it so much that I plans to save my pennies and buy it. Another sample of this Tata Harper mask was also excellent.

So yeah, I’m doing pretty well on this high maintenance mission.
