Friday Favorites: April 12

Friday Faves 4-12

It’s Friday! Huzzah! Here are my faves from the past week:

Favorite Makeup: MAC’s “Baking Beauties”
MAC made an entire collection of makeup based on baking. The pastel colors have names like “Fancy Frosting” and “Devils Food” and focuses on some pastel colors that are perfect for spring. They’ve gotta stop this whole gimmick of naming makeup after things I love–I’m gonna go broke. I’m particularly loving the Raspberry Swirl lipstick. The whole collection is available at

Favorite Tumblr(s): Reasons My Son is Crying and Des Hommes et des Chatons
You’ve most likely heard of Reasons My Son is Crying–they went as viral as a Tumblr page could this past week. It’s brilliant.

Another brilliant find is Des Hommes et des Chatons. It’s pictures of attractive men paired up with pictures of cats in the same pose. I don’t know how to explain it more than that. All I know is that I love it. Mr. Geek didn’t seem as amused, for some reason.

Favorite Kickstarter: Assemble Rubber Stamping Kits
Local (to Seattle) company Assemble Shop & Studio are in the middle of their Kickstarter campaign to create and sell rubber stamping kits, and the designs they’ve got so far are super cute. I could think of a lot of fun projects to do that could use the book spine stamp.

Favorite Activity: International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club
I just received my first letter from my pen pal, and I can’t wait to go shopping for Seattle/Geeky goodies to send her! I’ve set aside some time today to make that happen. Don’t have a pen pal yet? You can sign up on their site.

Favorite Way to Clear Out My Bank Account: Kate Spade Friends and Family Sale
You know I’m obsessed with Kate Spade and the brand’s cute, girly, quirky, and sometimes geeky style. Well, now I have even less of a reason to show restraint with their Friends and Family Sale starting today. Enter code S13FFUS to get the discount online. But be quick–the sale only lasts two days.

What are your favorite things from this past week?
