    My recent go-to work look

    Merlot Skin Care

    I came upon a few of these products at Walgreens today. I was looking for a mask to try and decided to try out the Merlot Grapeseed Purying Peel-off Mask. I've only tried it once and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. Have any of you tried this or other Merlot products? Opinions?

    Alright, so the night before last I had unprotected sex. There's dumb move number one.
