Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – Is marriage hard work?

Recently a blogger I have been following for a long time now (say Hi to Melissa here) did a Q&A. She went through all the questions at lightning speed, only briefly touching the one I am going to build my blogpost around: “How do you keep a long term relationship happy?”

A little background information here: Melissa married her first love and they are still crazy about each other. And as someone that believes that a happy relationship requires constant effort, her answer was quite a surprise for me. She said (rephrased): “I don´t believe you should have to work hard to keep a relationship happy. It should simply be that way.”

Now I am curious to hear what you think about that topic: Is a long lasting and happy relationship hard work or is it a sign that you are in the wrong relationship? I am pretty sure that at least for me work is required, but maybe I am just hard to get along with?

And yes, I can totally see Mr. Loca using that sentence against me in our next argument. Good thing he doesn´t read my blog!

But even if I believe in working for my relationship, there is one thing that I want to be just perfect, no effort required: My mascara. And sadly Benefit Roller Lash mascara was a little bit of a letdown in that department.

So when I finally emerged out of the fog surrounding the early days and realized that it was April already, I decided it was time to catch up. And given the decision to catch up on household chores or beauty items, I chose the latter.

Tough choice, I know.

And to make things even more enjoyable, I slapped on some makeup, changed into a fresh (read: no puke) top and turned on the camera.
