While I listen...

Monday, May 2, 2011


...I doodle! Chances are, if we've had a phone conversation, it ended up pink and/or squiggly. Try it next time you're on the phone, or listening to the radio or talking to someone (be a discreet doodler). Watch what comes out! Then report back, because I love spying on people's doodles too (look at expert pattern doodler Amanda)...here are some of mine lately:


Mopey ladies in the shade of orange lipstick I coveted (and finally found–Barry M LP#54–yes!):

Okay, Julia, now you know I am going to try to order some of that lipstick because I LOVED the shade you wore to Amanda's opening in Portsmouth! They also have a shade called Peachy Pink, which is my absolute favorite color to decorate with, so I may have to give that a try as well!

You must be getting very excited for Paris! Amanda had a great time in London and is now in Madrid, having an equally great time, it sounds like... Then on to Paris for her!

Love your doodles! I never do mine in color ... They're either done with the pencil or pen that I'm writing with while on the phone. So monotonous compared to yours! ... Donna

Donna-so happy to hear Amanda is having fun!!! Was she present for any of the royal wedding magic?

So excited you are getting the lipstick! P#54 is almost neon pastel orange, so be sure you have another color to mix with and tone it down which is what I do (or just wear it as is-you could totally do that too! woo!)

Julia,

All this talk over orange lipstick has made me obsessed. I love when new ideas are opened to me. While out the other morning I came across this:

A lip stain by Stila in mango crush. Amazing color (I love it on my pale skin).
