    Thank you for the vacuum link – I saw it when you posted it on IG but didn’t save it, and I desperately need a new vacuum.

    Seconding the recommendation on the Sephora eyeliner/shadow pencils! I have several colors and I reach for them over other options almost every day. Smooth application, easy to sharpen, and so inexpensive!

    Thank you Abra for your continued excellent content! 👏👏👏
