I scream, you scream, we all scream for it but I definitely scream the loudest for it…or the voice inside my head does.  If you ever went to Golden Corall and saw the little girl dipping her soft serve directly into the container of sprinkles, her name was Mallory and that wasn’t her first cone.  The struggle.  And my love of a good ice cream has not left me(unfortunately) as my metabolism slowed and it became unacceptable to dip your cone into the container because I was, well, grown…So I’m always on a hunt for great places in whatever city I’m in for real soft serve and real sprinkles…in comes a Nashville treasure called Bobbie’s Dairy Dip.  And Nums…


Now on to the other Bobbi that was involved…and one I have been in a long term commitment with, Bobbi Brown.  For this look at the Dairy Dip I wanted to wear pinks and purples on my eyes and, duh glitter…and the perfect pink sparkle beautiful shadow you’ve ever known is called Bobbi Brown Watercolor Pink Sparkle Eye Shadow.  You can get it in the Smokey Nudes Eye Palette which is a goto of mine or individually.  I am wearing a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Blush in Coral, and her Metallic Purple Shimmer Gel Liner as my bottom liner.  Bobbis UNITE!


Liner: BB Metallic Purple Gel Liner // Blush: BB Shimmer Blush Coral // Shadow: BB Smokey Nudes Palette

Now for one quick Bobbi story since it is throwback thursday and all…So as I was preparing for my first trip around the world my dad was helping me pack and was completely obsessed with the weight of my pack being under 11 pounds.  So one day I walk out into the garage and he has a hand saw and my Bobbi Brown makeup brushes in his hands, and is proceeding to saw the wooden handle off of all my brushes.  I was like, “Dad, what are you doing!?!”  The man of few words continues sawing and says, “weighs too much.”  “Dad, that’s not going to make that big of a difference and those are so expensive!”  So I started to walk back inside because he usually knows best when he says, “They can’t be that good he’s a rapper he don’t know nothing about makeup.”  He still may not know that the Bobbi Brown that makes my favorite makeup and brushes is not the one who was married to the late Whitney Houston…but whatevs…he meant well.
