BLATHER

Dennis and I will be heading off to Palm Springs next week!

Lately I've been binge watching Z: The Beginning Of It All (Amazon) and hope to check out Call the Midwife (Netflix), soon! 

I also fell down a lipstick rabbit hole and purchased a few shades of from Kat Von D's lipstick line. In this episode I'm wearing "Vampira" and showed-off "Cathedral". I also mentioned "Lovecraft".
