I went on a much needed shopping spree the other day, and boy, it felt good. I have really been into the sailor prep type of style recently, and I've been jamming out to 60's music. It's a strange mix, but the 60's remind me of summer. I usually buy quantity over quality of clothes, but when I get a quantity of things, I don't wear half of them. This time,  splurged on nicer brand name clothes, and wow! There is a world of difference in the quality. you don't just pay for the name, I know I'llhave these clothes much longer than other cheaper ones. Don't worry though! I didn't spend s million bucks! I got 3 shirts, two skirts, and watch, pair of sunglasses, pair of shoes, and some nice sterling silver earrings for just aro…

This outfit was photographed probably around the end of June, and it actually wasn't smoldering hot then. It's still nice to wear, if there is a cool day and a nice breeze. This outfit reminds me of David Bowie, who I love so very much. If anyone has ever seen the movie the Labyrinth with David Bowie, then this out fit would remind you of him, too. Thanks to my sister for taking these pictures! :D

I have been ridiculously busy with other life events, sorry for not posting. I'm always apologizing. So I guess this is the norm now, hahaha. It's been burning hot, too! So crazy, and because I dress in layers, usually, it's hard to post interesting outfits without dying. I've been packing my clothes to move into my apartment in Buffalo, so I'm limited on the clothes I have to slap together for posts. Opp! I have about 2 more outfits, before I run out of things to post.. I will try to space them out responsibly. Usually when I have a photo shoot, I'll do a few outfits at a time, but then I post them like all at once because I'm excited to have them! I need to fix those bad habits! ahahaha. Stay cool!


Makeup Monday: Death Cabernet for Cutie

Image
So for this I used a dark wine color on the outside (hence the "Cabernet" pun) and used white for the middle and finished the inside corner of my eye with a touch of light pink. I blended it with a little of the wine color to make it more noticeable for photo purposes. This is  a good night time look, or even if take to a less dramatic extent, could be a day time look as well.

It seems I'm always apologizing for not posting constantly. Ans now I'm going to give you more excuses as to why! Well my life is always full of new comittments and projects, and I found myself in the Sound of Music Production at Artpark. As an apprentice, I don't get a vast amount of stage time, but it is time consuming non the less...especially with shows coming up very very soon...Thursday, in fact!

Well to catch you up on my life...

I am officially a Lew-Port alumnusI am in a never ending search for an apartment in BuffaloI am a nun in the Sound of MusicI have a grad party to plan still...…

Tuesday Tips: Tinie Tiny Teeth Whitening Tip (turns out to be a tongue twister)

Bonjour tout le monde! Hello, world!

Well, I have just been beyond busy with Artpark's Sound of Music production, (I'm a nun, thank you), still looking for an apartment, TRYING to maintain a job with my busy rehearsal schedule, and am also partly responsible for entertaining one of Shawn's Belgian best friends, Sophie. She is such a sweet girl, and she understands English, she just refuses to speak it; poor girl...my French is awful. Anyway, back to this tiny tip.
I have been doing this for a little while, but only once in a while. Now, we all use "special" toothpaste to try and make out teeth whiter, however, not all of us notice the very slight difference it makes (if it even makes one at all). So this is something that I found on the internet a little while ago and have tried it and used in occasionally since. If you've ever used arm & hammer baking soda toothpaste, then this trick will taste very similar to the taste of that particular toothpaste. Step …
