I have no shame admitting that I will occasionally pee in the shower, that I fall in love too fast, cry easily, fear being alone forever, love terrible pop music, and that riding in the car with other people driving scares the shit out of me. I’m sometimes too open and honest here, but there’s…
This. Stolen right out if my brain……
December Photo A Day
Day 3: Red
Waiting for my next client & figured it was as good a time as any to do Day 3 of the challenge. There is nothing red in this room so I had to improvise :)
Day 2: Favorite Holiday Movie
Favorite Holiday Movie has to be Holiday Inn…and it doesn’t only have to apply to Christmas.
Close second is definitely Love Actually…just makes me so happy :)
Day 1: 8 o’ clock
I was late, so playing a bit of catch up here! Tonight at 8, I will be watching this movie with two of my favorite people :)
A couple days late, but I’m doing it! Feeling inspired and wanting to try this whole thing out for real this time :)
Community and Parks and Rec not cancelled
My favorite all time musical is Les Miserables. The first time I saw it was at my high school, and even though the senior boy who played Marius was god awful, I still loved it.
Fast forward a few years to sophomore or junior year of college when I was visiting NY with my dad. He offered to take me to a Broadway show (and after lots of arm twisting) he agreed to see Les Mis.
We were both crying by the end. I am BEYOND excited for the movie to come out in December. The cast seems like they will be pretty great. But after hearing Eddie Redmayne sing a portion of Ave Maria in some random youtube video (part of a compilation of the other actors in the film singing), I was fighting back tears at work.
Do a youtube search for “eddie redmayne singing” and listen to “God is With Us (Eddie Redmayne singing).” He has a solo in it and he is unbelievable.
7 months and counting!!
Can’t. Stop. Crying & thinking about my dog Phoebe. I miss her every day.
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
Found this the other day. Its a very useful chart to see the best places to highlight, contour and use blush for different face shapes.
Mine is the round one :(
Forgot to post this back when it was relevant. I went to a friend’s birthday party at an upscale lounge/bar in Studio City the other night and used these pictures as my makeup inspiration.

Haul from a few weeks ago. I will also post a breakdown of how I used these purchased products for a night out!
Benefit High Beam- My favorite highlighter at the moment. Its been talked about to death on the internet so I won’t describe the color. It gives the most perfect natural, pinky glow to the skin. I’ve also found that I love using it as an eyeshadow. Put it over UDPP and it stays put all day.
Nars Abyssinia eyeshadow-On the Sephora website it’s described as a delicate champagne shimmer. That’s pretty spot on. Its a beautiful brow highlight. I’ve found that the shimmer kind of gets lost as an all over lid color.
Laura Mercier Lipgloss in Bare Pink-A gorgeous light pink lip gloss. On my pigmented lips it shows up as a warmer version of Nars Turkish Delight.f
Perfect casual outfit.
Show tunes make the best studying companion :). Listening to Spring Awakening makes the day a little better.
Last week I was relegated to working in the downstairs storage room taking inventory, so I didn’t get to post the Celebrity Look Friday. Next week will be the same, but every week after that there should be something.
I’ve been loving the 70s style jumpsuits a lot of celebrities are wearing. Minka Kelley Looks so effortlessly cool in this amazing outfit. Wish I could pull something like this off!!
