Today is my 30th birthday.

Last night we drank champagne, worked on our bookshelves, ate cheese and crackers, and watched Bridesmaids.

This morning I put cream in my coffee, looked at short hair styles, and inspired by my birthday mailer from Sephora I treated myself to some new makeup.  

Ever since reading this post at A CUP OF JO I have been wanting to try her product picks for feeling gorgeous.  Normally I throw away all those birthday promotions that you get in the mail, but when I saw my gift from Sephora was a free Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Duo with any purchase I was motivated to use it, and naturally I bought the Bare Escentuals foundation.  Added bonus - by entering the promo code "elle4u" when I checked out I got a free 1-year subscription to Elle magazine!

I love magazines.

A good start to my 31st year.
