"You Make My Day Awards"

I wanted to share this with you guys because I was so deeply touched by it. Izar, one of my readers, has awarded with a “You Make My Day Award” for her blog!

I just visited her blog for the first time today and it’s wonderful! One of the first things that caught my eye was Izar’s Deviant page! Izar is obviously a very talented, gifted artist! And of course the fact that she blogs about my favorite topic, cosmetics, means she’ll be making her way onto my daily visit list!

Izar decided to pass the award on to me!

About the “You Make MY Day Award”:

“Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland…”

The general idea that I inspire anyone deeply touches me plus make them happy? That makes me happy too icon wink

Thank you Izar! I’m honored to be included in your post and awarded!

Lavshuca Noble On FOTD

As promised my FOTD from this morning using one of the new Lavshuca Noble On Palettes (If you missed my post on the new Lavshuca Collection do CLICK and have a peek!).

This particular palette was the aqua version.

I hate the way it came out! I dunno if I can chalk it up as the colors being all wrong in the palettes or just a rushed job of application this morning!

I also used one of the new Rouge Essence Bars in RD2. I took pics with and without plumping gloss as I thought it would help with displaying the texture and shimmer minus gloss!

Without Gloss

Barack Obama Music Video

It’s been a while since I visited with Dooce or GEORGE! for that matter so today I decided to wander over.

GEORGE! happened to have a rather awesome video up on his blog today! Hopefully he doesn’t mind too much if I snatch it from him!

I found this deeply moving and powerful!

BTW it appears GEORGE! cut his hair! Do drop him a line and tell him how HAWT! his new hair cut is icon wink

Koda Kumi Gossip!

preview KodaKumi BlackCherry

I read about the Koda Kumi gossip on a blog a few days ago but Iris from Rouge Deluxe has reported on it as well!

If you haven’t yet noticed Visee’s website has been down the past few days and it’s all do to problems with it’s spokesmodel, Koda Kumi!

If you’re not familiar with Koda Kumi she’s a Japanese pop star and of course the model image for Kose’s Visee line!

I won’t go into details about what happened with her as you can click your way over to Iris and read the details for yourself!

I will however say that I don’t think what was said was meant in an ill or mean spirited manner. I guess she thought she was being very “scientific” but it came out completely wrong! However, she’s cost Kose (and herself I imagine) a ton of money! You’d think she’d have known better then to say something like that! I’m wondering what Kose is planning to do with the new line up that just released?! New spokesmodel?

Anyway! Thought you might find it of interest if you live stateside and haven’t heard about it and happen to be a fan of Visee or Koda Kumi!
