Erika F

Inspiration: Annie from “Blogdorf Goodman”

With today being Annie’s, from “Blogdorf Goodman”, birthday, I thought it would be a great day to write her the love letter that I promised her last year.

Annie is an OG beauty blogger. Her archives go back 10 years, in February. When I first started reading beauty blogs, she was one of the first I bookmarked because she sucked me in with the “40 Days and 40 Nights” series. Not gonna lie, my “Pretend French Vacay” series was based on that, but, holy hell, there was no way I could do 40 days and nights of it, let alone year after year.

Back then, I was pretty much in awe of Annie, like anyone you admire, without any notion that I would really get to know her. Fast forward to now and we have bonded over kitty cats, Erika F eyeshadow, ancestry and Asian beauty. Heck, we even share a Pinterest board for that, so, you know that makes us like BFF’s EVAH!

Unfortunately, real life has intruded on Annie and she doesn’t post any more. But, she is still around on social media. Maybe she’ll take this as a little nudge to get her voice online in more than 140 characters. 😉

Happy Birthday, Annie! I hope 2015 is a wonderful year for you, and I am so happy to be your friend to get to see it!

Foreign Beauty Friday: Lancome G50 “Last Night” eyeshadow

*I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

Funny story – The lovely Blogdorf Goodman got me lemming the cult eyeshadow “Erika F” that is not available here in the US. So when my BFF told me that she was going to France, I *knew* this was my opportunity to finally get my grubby hands on it.

So, I armed my friend with a picture of “Erika F” that I had thieved from Pink Sith as an easy reference tool, to help her find this beauty. Unfortunately, the watermark that Pink uses (*the helmet) confused the salesgirl, who thought that my BFF was looking for a limited edition product and that the helmet was part of the case! So, the closest thing they could come up with was the “G50 – Last Night” eyeshadow. Which, turns out, is a glorious grey shadow that I will get more use out of than that stupid olive/silver “Erika F” shadow that I would have just cherished and tucked away in a box, never to see the light of day again. (*she says justifying the fact that she will never have it after all, pouting all the day).
