    MAC collaborates with Archie Comics for makeup line

    MAC is always so so smart. They’ve had great short-term makeup lines in the past specifically aimed at the female geek. From Disney Villians to Wonder Woman and now Betty and Veronica. At SDCC MAC is hosting a pop-up cosmetic store to showcase their Archie Comics Makeup Line. I guess you finally get to pick if you are a Betty or Veronica girl. M·A·C Archie’s Girls will be launching in Spring 2013. It is inspired by Dan Parent from the Archie Series. The full colour cosmetics collection will celebrate the iconic beauty looks of Betty and Veronica. The pop up store has limited hours, but I will hopefully drop in later tonight for pictures and more information on the line. Update: Went to the MAC store last night.

While the line to get badges was much shorter than normal, I think this was the most packed Preview Night I’ve seen in awhile. Stuff was selling out left and right already! The Chun-Li Hello Kitty was sold out, but hoping to pick it up today when the doors open! What was unfortunate

    Dark Days of Summer YA Book Tour

    Monday night, I took my children to see the Dark Days of Summer author tour. As you may remember from my reviews here, my daughter and I have read Partials, by Dan Wells, and both Divergent and Insurgent, by Veronica Roth, so we were excited to be there, but the other two authors were new to us. However, there is nothing like a book tour for tearing money out of my wallet, right? So, we got to the event early and bought some books, and when we sat down to wait for the authors to come out on stage, I had no one to talk to–my daughter was heads down in Aprilynne Pike’s first book, Wings, and my son was clutching SJ Kincaid’s Insignia (although he was getting in a bit more 3DS time before the talk started–he just had a birthday, so he had new games, ). I was
