Diva checks back in...

I've heard if you can do something for 21 days it becomes a habit.

Well, today I decided I am diving back into my love of writing and pretty much thinking out loud and in "print".

I have a long list of things I want to write about. Divacheck may not be the right place for all the stuff I want to discuss, but I can sort that all later.

My goal is to put what I want out there and to see what happens.

Ready, set, write...

What's in a name?

Who wouldn't want to be a "Supervixen" or "Misbehave"?  That's what I was thinking as I was looking at the names of the new Nars summer lip glosses.
Since this is Nars, these glosses deliver more than just a fun name and notion. Supervixen is a slightly shimmering perfect shade of nude beige and Misbehave is a lovely sheer pale red with just the right amount of glitter.

Both glosses are a great way to inject some fun into your summer makeup routine. They glide on smoothly and have good staying power without a distracting smell or taste.  

Did I buy the glosses because the names were so great and sassy?  No, but I do smile when choosing between my new glosses and think, "Do I want to misbehave or be a Supervixen?".

worth sharing

I just cast my votes in Sephora's "2008 best of sephora" beauty product ballot.  At the end they ask you, "What's your beauty secret/tip?".  Well, I thought since I was willing to share it with Sephora, I should share it with you.

My eyelashes are very straight.  To give my shu uemura eyelash curler a little help, I tilt the eyelash curler (while holding lashes) back towards my upper eyelid.  Instead of pressing and pressing and pressing, I just hold and tilt that curler.

That's just one of my beauty habits.

Any beauty secrets or tips you want to share?

knowing when

Sometimes you just have to know when to say when.  When there's chaos going on around you and you don't know what to do next, maybe the answer is to walk away.


Take a mental time out.  Close the door.  Take the phone off the hook.  Hide all the open windows on you computer screen.  Go to the bathroom.  Yes, give yourself permission to relieve your bladder.  And while you're in there, take a few deep breaths and enjoy the solitude.  

Figure out what nourishes your soul and work that into your life.

Two of my closest friends live a thousand miles away from me (one in Texas, one in Florida) and getting together with them always nourishes me.  When we can't physically be together we connect over the phone or via e-mail.  Sometimes just hearing one of their voices makes everything seem right in the world.  

What's your nourishment?
