Ineke After My Own Heart

PURPLE FLOWERS WEEK 2017

It’s an annual tradition on EauMG to feature “purple flowers” on the week of Nowruz/Vernal Equinox. “Purple flowers” are what I call flowers that (usually) have purple blossoms and bloom in spring: lilacs, violets, iris, heliotrope, hyacinth and wisteria (when I’m feeling generous).

The Lipstick League – Week of 3/6/17

Question of the Week: You’re going on a trip. Tell us what beauty products you bring in your carry-on (3oz or less, remember!)

EauMG’s Answer: Great timing. I’m leaving for Charleston tomorrow and currently getting my products together. When I travel, I abbreviate my routine.
