Garden Stuff (& day 47!)

If you know me at all, you know that I *hate* yard work.  I can and will do laundry all day long but I just can’t get down with the yard stuff.    I’m dedicating the whole weekend to getting it done.   Here’s the shameful before photo: And to console myself, I cut some lilacs andContinue reading “Garden Stuff (& day 47!)”

FOTD with Conjurer and Leopard Print Galaxy (& day 48)

Taupe Challenge FOTD (& day 49!)

The challenge this week in Never Too Much Sparkle was to use tapue in any way you chose.  I’m not a big fan of taupe simple because I find it mysterious and confusing.   Is it brown?   Is it grey?    It confuzzles my head.  Anyhoo, I dig around in the Book Of Shadows and found LordContinue reading “Taupe Challenge FOTD (& day 49!)”

FOTD With Zombie & Regifted Christmas Sweater And Bonus New Hair Cut (& day 53!)

I was smart and got before and after pics of my FOTD and new hair cut!    I knew I was going to cut a lot of hair off today so I decided to do a nice dramatic eye for the occasion.  It was a nice day out so I took photos outside this time. Face: Continue reading “FOTD With Zombie & Regifted Christmas Sweater And Bonus New Hair Cut (& day 53!)”

NTMS Orange Challenge Look (& day 54!)

The new challenge on NTMS was to use orange in any way that you wanted.   Orange?!?   Yes, please!    The FOTD with the Venemous colors was supposed to be my orange look but it looked way more yellow once I got it on so I decided to do it once more. Face:  MAC foundie and concealerContinue reading “NTMS Orange Challenge Look (& day 54!)”

Venomous Cosmetics Swatches (& day 55!)

I really enjoy all the bright, vibrant colors from Venomous Cosmetics so I decided to make one last order before they went on maternity hiatus.  Venomous is currently closed for maternity leave but you should check them out in a couple of months when they open back up.   The lip glosses are some of theContinue reading “Venomous Cosmetics Swatches (& day 55!)”

FOTD With Basket Case and The Arena (& day 58!)

Today I wanted to do another version of the complimentary colors challenge but I chose red and green this time.  I also tried a new color application and I’m not sure I love it.  I think this technique would be better suited with softer colors for day time.

Brazen FOTD with Forever And Animated (& day 59!)

The Brazen Beauty makeup challenge this week was using complimentary colors (opposites on the color wheel).   I chose to use Forever and Animated for a blue/orange look.  I meant to use Frisky instead but grabbed the wrong shadow.   I still LOVE the way it came out and I may redo this challenge tomorrow using differentContinue reading “Brazen FOTD with Forever And Animated (& day 59!)”
