And even though the cause and the effect are completely unrelated, I’m using that reason to justify the tube of MAC’s Viva Glam Lipglass V that I grabbed this weekend.
You know, since “Just because,” sounds so…hollow. And for this drugstore diva, it was
a bit of definitely a splurge.
But when I was out visiting Linds in D.C., she turned me on to it. It’s a great universal color, it has zero flavor and it doesn’t get sticky. Hello? Triple Threat.
I nibbled on a mini-bar of dark chocolate that came in at 85% cacao. It was fruity, smooth, dark (in a coffee-type of way) and mildly reminiscent of a flourless chocolate tort…or some particularly dense brownie batter.
I didn’t realize it until I was about halfway through, but THIS is precisely the sort of rich chocolate flavor I’ve been looking for over the past year. I want to eat it every day, chop it into chunks for baked goods and otherwise surround myself with it 24/7.
The best part? It was a ~$2 “bar” of Moser Roth chocolate from ALDI. Run, don’t walk kittens.
I didn’t realize I’d be writing a love-letter to Dark Chocolate tonight, but then there that was. Call it Kat: Unfiltered.
For what it’s worth, if it wasn’t the chocolate that got me all carried-away tonight, it definitely would have been the Chardonnay. I for one, consider a craving for white wine to be more indicative that spring is near than groundhogs, so let’s hope that for all of our sakes, I’m right.
Another little indulgence? I finally got around to watching the first episode of The Real Housewives of Miami. They’re as crazy as the Beverly Hills women but with mojitos, trashier outfits and what seems like an actual plot.
It’s no Rock of Love: Bus, but with every season of mindless backstabbing, we get a little bit closer to filling that hole in my heart.
Do you watch The Real Housewives? What’s your favorite city?
Even though Michaele Salahi was absolutely crazy, I found the D.C. women to be rather endearing.
Do you have a lip gloss you swear by?
