Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 441

We’re gonna start a family game night, and because our family includes Tabs, we got a kitty-themed card game. It’s great! It’s called Rat-A-Tat-Cat, and it’s only $8.75 at amazon.

Tom Ford 2017 Summer Soleil Collection Sheer Cheek Duo in Paradise Lust and Sheer Highlighting Duo in Reflects Gilt

“Sheer and Sparkly Cheek Duo” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Sheer Cheek Duo,” does it? Yeah, it doesn’t sound as Tom Ford-y, but these two new duos from the Tom Ford 2017 Summer Soleil collection are A LOT sparklier than I thought they’d be, and more pigmented too. Show More Summary
