Nightstand: January 20, 2018

What I'm reading, downloading, watching, or thinking about this week: 

  • Jessica Chastain's eyelid crease

I liked Molly's Game. But I couldn't get into it. BECAUSE I WAS STARING AT JESSICA CHASTAIN'S EYE MAKEUP THE ENTIRE TIME. Specifically, her eyelid crease. Because apparently drawing a line on your eyelid crease to accentuate your eyes is A THING. I never knew it and now I can't unsee it. Ever again. And this is on my nightstand because I spent an entire hour after the movie googling "Jessica Chastain eye crease" like a crazy person. But look at that line! This is a thing, y'all. I even went into my bathroom and TRIED IT. Spoiler alert: I didn't look like Jessica Chastain. BUT I WILL NEVER GIVE UP.

You heard it here. The eye crease line. The next big thing. Perfect segue into the next thing on my nightstand...

  • Kat Von D makeup

Do I really need to explain this one? Maybe I do. It's some of the best makeup on the market for anyone who really loves makeup. And I really love makeup. And I can't wait to dig into this new palette. (JOY!)

In fact, this Nightstand post is not just my favorite things this week, but some of my favorite things in the whole wide world. Movies, makeup, and condiments. Seriously. 

If the meaning of life is to follow your bliss, then I'm done. I've got it all figured out. Movies, makeup, and condiments. (Can I just take my trophy and go home now?)

  • Blue Top Creamy Hot Sauce

It is a very special day when I go to the grocery store and discover a NEW CONDIMENT. Because there is not much that gives me more pleasure (other than movies and makeup - what can I say, a girl can only meditate so much before she needs to indulge the superficial) than the magical experience of taking perfectly good food and dousing it with unnecessary.... stuff. 

Maybe this is nothing new. Maybe you've been delighting in the joys of Blue Top Brand Creamy Hot Sauce for years while I've had to mix mayo and hot sauce together by hand LIKE A SAVAGE. But leave it to the good folks at Safeway (yep, they've got the condiment goods) to solve all of my problems in one fell swoop. One fell swoop in multiple flavors. Blue Top is also available in Buffalo Cayenne, Cilantro Serrano, Curry Habanero, Honey Chipotle, and Lime Jalapeno. 

Naturally, Blue Top is made by Texans, y'all. Because we love our condiments. (Except for my sister-in-law. She is a saint. But a saint who doesn't like condiments very much. I love you anyway, Mag.)

If you want to find out where to get your own bottles of Blue Top for all of your food-dousing pleasure, apparently you can email them. (If you're in Denver, go to Safeway at 26th and Federal... "Condiments & Dreams".)

(Pro tip: read the directions and snip the tip. Hee, hee.)
