It’s funny how one good day can really turn things around.

I unplugged yesterday and spent the day cleaning/baking bread/prepping meals/grocery shopping/exercising. I was rewarded with a fully stocked fridge (after 2 hours and 4 stores…I love grocery shopping), and an excellent night of sleep.

Speaking of grocery shopping; Lucas and I hit up La Grotta yesterday, which is somewhere we have absolutely NO business shopping as we are far too poor. Nevertheless, I was on a mission for good, wholesome yogurt without an ingredient list a mile long or a pile of artificial sweeteners (difficult to find in your average grocery store – at least in Winnipeg). I found Liberté. I almost died. I also bought some ridiculously expensive salad dressing with…get this…real ingredients. I’m basically going to have to stock up over the summer while I have an income, because I doubt I’ll ever be able to go back to Krap…er…Kraft.

A while back (Saturday, October 25th, apparently!) I saw this post over on Cat’s blog. I remember being impressed, but thinking “Seriously…can’t afford it. Don’t even look at it.”

March rolls around and I realize that I’m running low on…everything. All of my shitty foundation/concealer is about to run out. Oh, and I need new brushes, before mine crumble to dust from being so damn old. Seriously, if I wash them one more time they may just disintegrate. So, do I:

a) Go buy some more shitty makeup that I’ve been buying just because it is cheap or
b) Pay the not-so-terrible price of $68 CDN for a Bare Escentuals starter kit from Sephora…avec brushes?

My credit card was already bursting at the seams so…why not? This finally showed up this week:

Thanks for the heads up Cat…I think I’m a mineral convert ♥.
