Well, gang, we did it. Five days on for two days off, and oh how sweet that tune sounds every. single. Friday.
To those with less traditional workweeks, sorryboutcha, but I’m all flute-clinks and high-fives because TGIF (And I hope you celebrate a different day of the week, at least.)
A week’s Top 5 highlights (or shall I venture.. “Sprinkles”?) AKA a week in the life of Robin Karber. I know you’ve never been so enthralled.
ONE. Last week my car decided it didn’t want to be a car anymore. So this week… I bought a car. It’s the first time I’ve experienced the honest-to-goodness research and test drive and run-my-credit process, and I never want to do it again ever. I imagine this is a FRACTION of window into what it’s like having a baby. Like, that was the worst thing I’ve ever been through in my life, but then I look at my baby I’m all smiles and joy-rides-for-days because new car.
It’s the strangest juxtaposition of “hooray, car!” and “oh, car payment!” but when life gives you a lemon car, God’s got your back, and you figure out how to get a better one. I think that’s how the saying goes.
TWO. I crept from my comfort zone with a little citron + red paired with bright red polish on Tuesday, and the little sassy pants I felt like the entire workday made me want to do it again real soon. Strong red lip = immediate +10 on the confidence-o-meter every time. Who knows why.
I also think I’m going to end up owning this shirt in every color of the Loft rainbow.
THREE. Forgetting my lunch and making a routine mad-dash-lunchtime-Target-run, I rediscovered the simple joy of a good Lunchable… and then stocked-piled. These bad boys deserve to be wildly more popular on the grown-up lunch circuit.
FOUR. The days I haven’t felt like such a sassy-pants, I’ve had this little lippie on repeat that I scored a few weeks ago during Tarte’s friend & family annual sale. So moisturizing. So subtle. So nice-smelling. So pretty. So easy.
FIVE. Was anyone else’s week *made* with this email? (I mean, like, made second to Sprinkle #1, maybe. Maybe.) I don’t know how *exclusive* the test markets actually are, so I’m curious. I’m also elated this is going to be a thing. Positively elated. Don’t let me down, Sephora. The last thing we need are more beauty enthusiast meltdowns rampantly spamming the www. I choose to believe this is going to be fantastic. Stay tuned.
