mommy dates & nars lipstick

one of my guilty pleasures is taking my little boys on mommy dates. it usually involves something fun for me (paper source & sephora) and something fun for them (hot dog on a stick and a stroll through build-a-bear). i try using my best date manners and benji is learning to hold doors open for seth's stroller. no distractions; no texting, no disciplining (if possible), just chit chat and lots of holding hands and genuine compliments. if you give them air to talk, it's awesome to see what toddlers come up with. on the way to the mall we talked about volcanoes and dinosaurs and the word extinct

another guilty pleasure (since i don't have time to truly peruse and choose), we run into sephora and pick a wild colored lipstick at random (benji sometimes helps). i try it on and wear it for the rest of the day deciding if i'd ever purchase it. i like to think that it whips my messy bun and leggings into a chic fashion statement rather than a fall-out-of-bed look. yesterday i tried NARS SCHIAP. it's a semi-matte lipstick. its shocking bright pink hue is the perfect pick-me-up and 'take that!' for the winter months. it's adorable and actually wearable. am a fan. and the good news is, it stayed on after eating said hot dog on stick. which is pretty important when it comes to dating.

a bright lipstick just makes every outfit fashionable.

by the way, your mommy dates sound fun.

ooh, tempting! I only own one lipstick by Nars (Red Lizard), but this one looks fab.

You're a fab mom.

This is just the cutest. I suggest we double date next! You with your boys and me with mine. I love the no distractions, no disciplining, etc. I could incorporate that into our lives a lot more!

p.s. I love that you tried that crazy pink color and I just know you pulled it off, because I have yet to see a lip color that doesn't look good on you!

nars is one of my favorite brands of lipsticks - and who doesn't die in a sephora! my fave color is heatwave. :)

I haven't worn lipstick since I was a little girl experimenting. I'm convinced that I just can't pull it off. Perhaps it's time I try again...
