Music Monday – Radiohead – Creep

Because yes. Music is feeling art, expressionism at its finest, at worst – a wailing reminder that you do something wrong. But alas when all is right in the world, yet something is still amiss… we turn to music. Because within notes and lyrics lie the truth.

 

Aight, time to talk vanity again

Y’all know me and my dependency on cosmetics. No shame. But it better be of good quality. And when yours truly comes across some real gems, you know she’s spilling the beans.

So… for November (we’ll get back to “Movember” later), these are some tried and trusted products.

Skin saver!

Skin saver!

I use Boscia BB cream in light every day. I blend it with two or three other shades of foundation to match my skin color. This BB cream is great on its own, but doesn’t give a lot of coverage. Blended with foundation it gives a perfect, luminous look. LOVE! It costs about $38 at Sephora, but lasts forever.

Another skin saver!

Another skin saver!

I found a sample of this oil in a magazine and decided to try it. I think my skin had an orgasm. Can you say that? It felt really good and I had a rosy glow all day. NOT greasy at all and is perfect as a night-time treatment. About 8 bucks at drugstores.

Bye bye circles.

Bye bye circles.

And this one is truly a life-saver. I get up at 3 am every day (night) for work, and this covers everything. Set it with a little bit of translucent mineral powder, and nobody can tell you didn’t get your 8,9,10 hours of sleep. A little goes a long way, but it’s super blendable. $24 at Sephora.

OK! Three recommendations for today. What are your must-haves? Do share! I’m always looking for new products, even though I stay true to the ones I love the most. Olay Total Effects Moisturizer Plus Touch of Sun has been a staple for nearly five years now. I curse the day they dare to discontinue!

Now – talk to me. Have you tried any of these? What are you faves?

Until next time… cheers! 🙂

 

Music Monday: Eddie Money

Wohoo! Get your mullet on and rock away the Monday blues. Eddie Money is here and he wants to take you home tonight. Rock on.

 

I resisted…but…

I finally gave in. I’ve joined the masses. I’m on INSTAGRAM! I even took a selfie. It looks horrible. But trust me – it’s the first and last I’ll ever take. No outfits pics or duckface portrait. I PROMISE!

In my defense, it was Halloween and I wanted to get a snap of my cat make-up. It looks better in real life. I don’t have sharp enough fangs to make a believable ferocious feline.

But I love Halloween and it was a good time indeed! What did you do? And more importantly, are you on Instagram? Do you take selfies?

RAWR!

RAWR!

 

Purr...?

Purr…?

 

Let’s get back into this, shall we?

Wow. It’s been forever and a day since I last blogged. I could lame lack of time, but rather, there’s been lack of inspiration. Or simply wanting to. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE my blog, but I felt I needed to put in on hold while I got some things figured out.

 

I’m happy and enjoying life in Portland, Oregon. Keeping it weird every day, y’all. A bigger update soon with pics.

 

Stay tuned!
