I’ve started linking pages to some items I use because a few people have e-mailed me asking where they can locate the items used! Now it’s easy! Just click and you’ll be at the page where you can view the details for the shadow, mascara, etc…!
green look tomorrow
In preparation for tomorrow’s green look I bring you green looks from the past!
(For some reason I’m looking quite shocked here! No idea why!)
(If you’re wondering why I’m looking slightly wet around the neck it’s because my sister had just splashed me with a cup of water! Still got that shocked look on my face! Imagine I was still reeling from the dose of water to the chest!)
Unknown (Photos are a month or more old so clueless what I used! See some of my other green looks for a clue ;))
What does one do when sadness beckons and sleep eludes them?
Blog about beauty of course!
The following entry is from a blog I did ages ago on Live Journal but I’ve revamped it for My Space! At the moment I am not feeling my normal self so I’m entitled to a mark up and edit of this very blog. It gives me something to do with my mind less it wander into my heart.
Givenchy. Ah the posh richness of Givenchy’s color collections! I guess I can rightly be called a newbie to Givenchy’s make-up line as I really only started collecting it this past fall. A friend brought me a blush as a gift and this started my downward spiral into the expensive habit of tracking down and purchasing new Givenchy palettes! Yes I do curse her everyday after!
Givenchy’s line is probably one of the only make-up lines I’ve seen sell out so quickly! It’s not sold in many places and it’s difficult to track down the items when they do finally pop up somewhere! I’m fool enough to call every Sephora from 42nd Street to Times Square trying to locate one palette! Online you say? Impossible! Sells out in a snap!
The spring line was probably my favorite thus far!
The Arty line is bright, bold, and colorful as all hell! I’d love to say that I have the entire collection but I somehow mustered up enough willpower to puchase the blush and the eye palette only! It seemed too ridiculous to actually spend all that kind of money on the entire line! Maybe when I win the lotto! I’ll whisper this really low but I also didn’t spend the money on it because I just felt I wasn’t in the same league as the collection! Hell you have to be drop dead, outstanding gorgeous to wear make-up this lovely and I’m not entirely in that catagory! (Jesus I hope no one important is reading this! I won’t mention any names but he’s likely going to bloody snuff me out for saying that I am not gorgeous! Lucky am I he thinks so ya? Ok ok ok back to the make-up).
Since fall I’ve come across some great palettes they have done but by far this has been the best of the lot!
If you have some spare change rattling around in your pockets and you really want to purchase something different, I highly recommend either the Arty Blush or the Arty Eye palette! Or both! Oh my! These are too amazing products that Givenchy has outdone themselves on!
My tiny lot from the Arty Color Collection:
Cheers to Givenchy! High hopes we see new, exciting colors come the winter!
It should take me till that time to find the newest palette released for the summer!
I’m off to put out signs in the neighborhood! “Have you seen this palette?” Reward offered for any information regarding its where abouts!
If you haven’t figured it out yet (You’re REALLY slow if you still haven’t noticed this) I’m short and round! This means society has fit me into cute little headings like “cute and chubby”, “big and beautiful”, etc…etc…
Anyway, I decided a long time ago even though I didn’t win the looks/weight lottery I could still work around what I do have and try to glam it up as much as humanly possible (this stuff takes alot of work people! Hours actually!)!
Thankfully a few select shops have remembered us small, round chicks and decided that it was a good idea to invest some time into creating clothes for us! PHEW! Saved! One such shop goes by the name of Torrid! Thank you Torrid for remembering that all girls are not created equal and some of us are height challenged as well as blessed with wobble and jiggle! Torrid appears to want to keep the select few of my species happy by creating trendy little fashion bitlets for us!
Now Torrid is a problem for me, Yes Yes Yes! I know you’re asking yourself why I am already ranting when just two seconds ago I was raving! The problem is when I go into Torrid or happen to wander onto the website I end up coming away with more clothes that I don’t possibly need! I already have enough clothes and shoes to keep a small village warm for a few years! Adding more to that pile is pretty much like suicide!
Today, as I was happily sipping my cuppa, my genius, witty, clever mind decided that it might just be a good idea to have a look at Torrid’s website. Why not? What could it hurt? My feeble little mind convinced itself that since I’d be going to England either in August or this fall (hopefully sooner than later) I’d need new clothes! Now I never need an excuse for purchasing new clothes, shoes, accessories, or make-up but I had promised myself to calm my little self down and take a deep breath before purchasing stuff I don’t need! Now this never works as the little voices inside my head are strong with the force.
However, today the force was quite heavy and it convinced me that I did indeed need to have a few little items for my upcoming trip!
My tiny, really small, ickle, little order:
It’s rare that I like to wear a dress but occasionally you’ll see me flirting around with one! This order included quite a few dresses that I’ve been wanting to buy forever and today seemed a good day to do it!
Oh My God! I wanna twirl in this!
I already had the stockings, might as well get the skirt!
The moral of today’s blog kids is even if you’re a larger lady you can still have fun with your looks and be as fashionable as your heart desires (contrary to what society and the surgeon general says)! Work with your mama gave you!
Now…I need some new shoes…Hmmm……
Quite the understated pink for me this bright, sunny day!
