New Makeup Looks with Toki Doki Palette

Yesterday I stopped into the Sephora in Soho and picked up something that made me excited about makeup again – Toki Doki’s Robbery Palette!  Let me back up for a sec.  It’s been a minute since I did any makeup posts.  The reason is twofold – one, I work at a pretty conservative office so my daily makeup has to be tame, and two, I got a little bored with the products I had.  However I’m a sucker for the clever adorableness that is Toki Doki, and this palette just happened to be on sale for the very sweet price of $39 (marked down from $49).  If you’re looking to snap one up, do it quickly because a MUA artist there gave me the inside scoop that they’re almost gone.  Just wanted to show you all this cool set and a look I did using the products!

The Robbery palette comes in a keepsake tin, with a big magnet to cuten up your fridge or file cabinet.  Aw!

The Weather Outside is Frightful

The Northeast is being pounded with snow and freezing rain, and I hear there’s more on the way.  But even though I’m holed up inside, there’s lots of activity going on in the Gearbunny labs.

I’m baking cookies

and clay – not at the same time, of course!

Yum!  If I can’t go outside this is a delicious way to spend the day.  I’m getting ready for Valentines Day and plan to have a lot of new treats listed soon.  Keep an eye out for updates here and at gearbunny.etsy.com.
