I have this habit of leaving my gym bag pockets unzipped. It's partly because I'm lazy, but it's also partly because I have never had anything fall out so I never had incentive to zip them up. Well, that was until two weeks ago when I lost my eyeliner. And since it was a bit pricey, I am sure you can imagine how excited I was when I found it in my yard a few days ago. Even though it was a bit weathered and the brand name had been rubbed off, it still worked great.
However, this morning upon closer inspection of the weathered brand name, I discovered that this was not actually my eyeliner. Lesson learned: zip your gym bag and don't use eyeliner you find in your yard.
Another important lesson I learned this week is how to make amazingly creamy mayo -- without the eggs or added oils! So let's get to work!
