#1,686 Lipstick + Lunch with Mama + Dinner with Trests.
by Erin Napier
Lately, I’ve been going through a lipstick thing. I really like wearing bold, red lipstick. Not every day, but for night time events and every now and then… It just feels right in the daytime, too. It makes me feel like I look less like my brother and daddy, which is always nice when you’re a girl.
Last night I discovered that Forever 21 sells makeup and I found the best shade of red lipstick called Brick. It was just $3, which I really appreciate.
Do you ever wear red lipstick? If you don’t, you should try it. You’ll feel fancy and girly in all the right ways.
Mama and I had a little lunch date at one of my favorites on the next block from my studio, Cafe La Fleur (Amanda—can I get an amen?) and stopped in the Antique Mall next door to pick up a couple things afterward. It’s hard to get away for a beach weekend like we did when I was in college, but this is a pretty good substitute.
And tonight after work, we spent the evening with Jim and Mal at Dawn and Michael’s, who invited us over for a wonderful dinner. King ranch chicken casserole, salad and pear cake. We all stayed up, playing with the kids, listening to old records, talking about travel and ministry and Laurel, and before we knew it, we were up way later than we meant to be and said our goodbyes with full bellies and tired eyes.
It felt like fall outside tonight all of a sudden, and I realized a cold front is coming through all week. What a blessing!
