>EOTD/FOTD- Technically, Yesterdays!

•May 25, 2011 • 11 Comments

So yes…. Technically, yesterday was Tuesday. Mosaic class was switch-a-rooed, but I had fun coming up with another free form design… And I think I'll be working on it later on (technically) today. It's going to be pretty fun- mirrored pieces, iridescence, fun colors! Anywho- you'll be proud of me. I totally took pictures of my look today- since a) they're my first mineral matte shadows and b) they're my new e.l.f. Mineral shadows. That's right- I got my package on Monday! And (technically!) yesterday I got my package from Cherry Culture- I bought some Nyx while they were on sale over there, and before the "Anniversary Fail" Sale.
Anywho- I wanted to dig in to my matte shadows. I wanted smoky, sexy, spring-ish. In total- I was able to nab the 10 free mineral eye shadows from e.l.f. that were offered on sale until May 23rd. In order to do that, I had to order a certain (reasonable) amount of makeup… So I bought three of their new Matte Lipcolors, five of their new gel eyeliners, a stippling brush, and… I don't remember. I can't remember if there was something else. Huh. LOL It's late, my brain is fried! And yes, we were in my sister's car, driving with the windows down for the first time this season because it was finally not raining today- and the big yellow thing in the sky came out to say hello! It was amazing!!! Hence, the crazzzzzy hair!

That's right, it's time to celebrate! I never in a million years dreamed I'd gather so many people just by starting a silly blog and detailing my funny makeup antics! Who would have known- certainly not I!
As a huge thank you to all of you who follow me with my huge successes (Like say… Dia De Los Muertos…. Epic painted face!) and great mistakes (orange hair, anyone?!) I'm going to be putting up a giveaway in roughly a week's time. Who's excited!? I sure am! I have over a thousand of you on my Facebook Page alone! There's over 200 of following me on Twitter! I'm quickly coming up on nearly 200 readers here! I'm working my way slowly to almost 200 YouTube subscribers! That's a lot of you!!! I've never met such a wonderful group of ladies and gents, and I'm rather thankful and very impressed that I'm involved with such an understanding, friendly, supportive and nice group of friends!

The picture below is not the giveaway stash- it's just merely an image for the blog, until I can get some snaps of what I actually am putting together for the giveaway❤

Hair Adventures – The Vitamin C Trick Worked!

•May 21, 2011 • Leave a Comment

So as we’re all well aware, I’m trying to pull the red out of my hair in order to go blonde for the summer. Below is what I started off with, and as you well know my favorite red. It’s bright. It’s classy. It’s a color when inside looks “normal”, but outside brightens right up to “that red!” A success too- I’m now known around town (well, was) as “The Redheaded Girl.”

Back to the bleaching process. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I didn’t expect to become partially blonde, partially orange, partially brassy copper, partly red. Heh. It’s been quite a ride, hasn’t it?! It’s been a week since I bleached my hair, twice in one night. No- not the smartest thing to do, so right off the bat I recommend strongly that unless you know how your hair reacts to bleach processing- do not do it twice in a row!! That was a risk I took, knowing my hair might end up over processed, damaged, or worse- breaking off at various lengths. So take it from me- do not bleach twice in an evening. I was lucky.

Well, I’ve made extra sure to condition my hair not only in the shower, but also with leave in conditioners and silky smoothing products. Yeah, it means my hair gets greasier a bit quicker, but it’s important it does such- the natural oils that your scalp generates will in essence “go crazy” and over produce. I then take my boar-bristled brush and make sure I brush my hair for about 5 minutes to distribute the oil and products through my hair evenly. This helps my hair heal faster- sealing the cuticle so it doesn’t look so dry, but a heck of a lot better than the photo below!

>The Seven Deadly Sins – Wrath and Patienece Collaboration with Makeup Zombie

•May 20, 2011 • 12 Comments

I've been fighting my computer nearly all day, hence the late posting of this look. Actually, officially, it's Friday. GAH! Nothing would please me more than to take this computer, walk it outside to my driveway, lay it down, AND DRIVE MY TRUCK OVER IT TIME AND TIME AGAIN UNTIL NOTHING IS LEFT BUT A BUSTED MESS OF PC PIECES. I really despise working on a PC. But until a time comes where a MacBook Pro or Air magically falls out of the sky, I'm stuck.
Rant: over.
Sin this week:
Wrath (Latin, ira), also known as "rage", may be described as inordinate and uncontrolled feelings of hatred and anger. Wrath, in its purest form, presents with self-destructiveness, violence, and hate that may provoke feuds that can go on for centuries. Wrath may persist long after the person who did another a grievous wrong is dead. Feelings of anger can manifest in different ways, including impatience, revenge, and vigilantism.
Wrath is the only sin not necessarily associated with selfishness or self-interest (although one can of course be wrathful for selfish reasons, such as jealousy, closely related to the sin of envy). Dante described vengeance as "love of justice perverted to revenge and spite". In its original form, the sin of anger also encompassed anger pointed internally rather than externally. Thus suicide was deemed as the ultimate, albeit tragic, expression of hatred directed inwardly, a final rejection of God's gifts.
