I was on Twin Cities Live today, sharing my top hits and misses from Benefit Cosmetics, L'Oreal, Bare Minerals and NYX. This is what I wore, but let me tell you: it took a lot to get to this stage.
About 2 hours before the show, I realized that my bangs were waaaay too long and needed a trim. STAT. Don't tell my hairstylist, because she hates it when I trim them myself. Dan asked me how much wine I'd had before grabbing the scissors...which is a fair question, since that's usually my MO. However, this was midday and I was working and I had to be on TV so NONE, thank you very much.
One of the most fun parts of doing these segments is pulling out all the products and looking at them. You guys lovingly hold your beauty products and whisper sweet nothings to them, too, right?
I put on my TV makeup twice today, as evidenced by this face wipe. Because OF COURSE I put everything on the first time and stared at my reflection wondering what in the world had gone so, so wrong. Re-do! Happens to everyone. Usually right before a big event.
My friend and fellow Twin Cities Live regular Laurie Crowell was on-set today. She turned Wild Rice soup into a Wild Rice hotdish. It smelled amazing and tasted even better!
Mmmmm...just look at that beautiful baby. You can buy the MN-shaped hotdish dish (hotdish dish...I guess that's a thing) at Laurie's store, Golden Fig Fine Foods.
And, coming full circle. I picked this outfit because I don't think I've worn this lace dress from Christopher and Banks on Twin Cities Live, before. I thought the military-style denim jacket (Torrid) and mixed metal necklace (Lane Bryant...ages ago) contrasted nicely with the ultra-feminine dress. The belt (Lane Brant outlet, also a long time ago) was a must because it's easier for the sound guys at TCL to attach my mike there than to snake it down the back of my dress and clip it to my bra. Perhaps more than you wanted to know...tights from Avenue and booties from Payless.
