Fall Fashion: FlutterHabit #5

Flutterhabit recently dropped their #5 lash in the Weightless Collection, so of course, I bought them, even though I knew they'd probably be too long for me! 

When I opened the package, my first thought was "Halloween Costume!" but since I'm working from home and not on Zoom today, I decided to apply them anyway.

  • I doubt I'll ever wear the #5 lash unless I take a piece or two and mix and match them with shorter lashes.  
  • Even though I only used 4 out of 5 sections, it's still "too much lash" for my small eyes.  
  • So, I am also going to pass on the #6 lash, which I believe is even longer and bolder than this set.  
  • They are too much for my hooded eyes; they are so long that they touch my under eyebrow area. 
  •  They are so long that they smack my glasses, which is super uncomfortable.  
  • The #4 lash is still in production with a launch date scheduled for the first of the year.  I'll probably try that one out and am hoping it will be a cats-eye style or a volume version of the Winks.  
  • One of my "rules for lashes" is that they must feel comfortable, and I actually removed these right after I took the photo to share on the Flutterhabit Facebook page.

VIP Wine Tasting in Del Mar

Yesterday, we had a wonderful time at the VIP Wine Tasting at the Del Mar fair.   Only 250 tickets were sold, and we got to experience several excellent wines with food pairings from Chef Barry, who works at the Turf Club at the Del Mar fairground.   The event started at 12:30, and we arrived early because we weren't sure what traffic would be like, which gave us a chance to learn about the secret destination that would be open later and inspired me to start looking for a wine-tasting shirt for William to wear on our wintery adventures.   What I Wore | Follow The Flamingos I think my favorite (big surprise) was the Chile & Coffee Crusted All Natural Brandt Beef Skirt Steak with JalapeƱo Mashed Potatoes,  paired with a 2018 Costa Azul Cab Sauvignon from Alexander Valley.  I also enjoyed some of the sparkling wines, which were paired with cheese made specifically for the event by a local cheesemaker who only makes the cheese in small batches. As part of the VIP exper

Summer Conversations: We Got COVID

Early 2020.  I was filling the role of a Public Information Officer in the Hospital Command Center at our Hillcrest hospital. UC San Diego Health was caring for COVID-positive patients who had recently been flown in from Wuhan, and I was helping write communications to keep our team members up on the latest developments, like what kind of PPE to wear and more.  I would alternate 8-hour shifts with my colleagues, one of many people packed around a conference room table. I remember the unbelievable moment when we went from 4 to 7 positive patients, waiting for COVID test results to arrive from the CDC in Atlanta, the U.S. Marshalls coming to pick up people who had been discharged, and sharing food with the hospitalists and translators who were providing in-person care for the people just a few floors away from me.   You know the rest of the story or at least your own version of it.   I didn't get COVID in 2020.  Or 2021. But I did test positive for it on July 18, 2022.   Yes, William

Summer Thoughts: 20 Days Out

Another one of my family members joined the Rona Club this week, and as I was sharing my experiences of what worked for me, I started thinking about what I knew, what I didn't know, and what I would do differently to care for myself after testing positive.   My goal is to stay healthy all the time and yet,  I do acknowledge that we know that this is not a "one and done" type of situation at this moment in time.   So, I decided to write a letter to my pre-COVID self to help myself out in the future if the need should arise.  (A friend and I recently discussed the fact that we've all been so intent on "not getting it" and wished that we'd better prepared for what to do if we did. If you've had it, what would you do differently?) Dear Future Rachel,  You didn't want to get COVID, but you did.  You hoped to remain asymptomatic, but you didn't.   The virus was annoying, frustrating and exhausting, but it wasn't scary, and you required no speci
