What a diff a hair color makes?

Leave a comment

WOW! I do look different, but in a good way, of course! lol 😉

Phase Three should be it, but I never make promises. 😉 lol especially where hair color is concerned.

I admit I am loving the lighter me! My brown eyes are just popping now!

Nude and Matte? Challenge Accepted part 2

Leave a comment

Okay, first, I love Spring, but sometimes Spring doesn’t love me! Sinus issues-am I right? I had to call in yesterday, it started as a manageable sinus headache and turned into a hades inspired sinus migraine! ugh, I really hate those! I slept when I could, and got loving from Isis and JiJi last night-when they wanted to love me. lol, Cats! 🙂

I remembered that I was challenged to use and do a nude face/lips this week! And so, tonight, I used my Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette. I used the two golds, the lightest on my lid, and the darker in my crease with the very light vanilla-all the way to the right on my brow bone. I blended, but my squishy eyes don’t help you see that very well. I relaxed my eyes too. *shrugs* The blush is a bronzer/highlighter together from Physician’s Formula-that I just love to use. And the lips are the one’s from Victoria’s Secret Kit-I reviewed in Part 1, Adore, and the nude pencil.


I like it! Just a bit of enhancement that didn’t take long to put on, and won’t take long to take off.

We’ll see after Phase 2 of Operation Dramatic is completed tomorrow, if I still use this nude palette. 😉 I love playing with makeup! I always have! Oh and in other news, this jacket I bought a while ago, actually matches the Stitch Hawaiian shirt from Hot Topic I own! Woot!! I just love serendipity!

How do you decide on a new hair color?


Me, I’m definitely not normal.

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of being normal? huh?

Anywho, I use Alexandria as my tester! yep! We have the same eye color- well, okay, her’s is more golden than brown. We have the same height, and body-mostly! HUSH! And minus the tail, claws, and ears we could be twins!

So I’m tired of being too fussy with my hair. Meaning it’s going silver at the roots. So I was considering going silver, but the more I thought about it and looked at pictures of people with silver hair, yeah, NO. They all had one thing in common- it aged them considerably.

                   Silver versus Platinum 

So what’s a girlie to do, well just like in real precious metals, Platinum WINS!
and yes, I’m playing around with Alexandria to check cuts too… the one on the left is more what I want to go with the color on the right. You’ll understand when you see the surprise. 😉 lol 

I’ll share pix when it’s all done!! WOOHOO!! Dudes, it’s Today! Third shift does mess with my sense of time with people. I say tomorrow and I mean today! Right, confusing!! 

Today early, right after work! I have to pick up Patrick and then we drive over to Muncie.  Yay!! Pampering time today and after the past week or so, I sooo need some pampering!! I’d kill for a massage, but my massage therapist won’t give me a massage without a doctor’s note!!! Yes, that is the sign of a good and responsible massage therapist. I know that… but it doesn’t stop me from whining about it. LOL 🙂


back to playing with Alexandria and haircuts!! lol

M’Chel’s make up stuff. lol

So for a new type of blog entry and to make you look forward to Monday’s. I’m going to start with some of my make up tips. As an ex-Avon person, and years of doing make overs and also applying peoples makeup for money; proms, weddings, special events.
I kind of know what I’m talking about. lol 😉 

anywho…. I love Urban Decay’s primer for eyeshadow, what I don’t like is the price. So what to do? Well, I use my old MAC Paint Pots. They come in a variety of colors as well, so if you really want that shadow to Pop, then you layer on the paint color first and then the eyeshadow over it.

My theme today was gold!

One of the Betsey Johnson necklaces from hubs and a pretty sparkly golden top he surprised me with.

Next up after foundation, blush, etc… time for the eyes.
And this is my MAC paint pot Rubenesque- a really pretty gold with a slight pink tint to it as well.

unnamed (12)

Okay opened it up, so hopefully you can see the slight pink tint to it.

I then used one of my gold eyeshadows and viola!
FYI, it’s really difficult to take a pic while your eyes are closed… LOL
& yes, I know those eyebrows need tweaked. 😉

unnamed (15)

And then for the lips, some gold MAC-Which is called Bronze Shimmer. And then the gloss is from Covergirl- less expensive than the MAC gloss and less gloppy IMO! Covergirl #630- Give Me Guava.
Which is a combination of pink and gold.

unnamed (13)

and this is a lesson, always remember to use your lip pencil. LOL but I love the pinky gold!! 😀
next week, I’ll show you the difference a lip pencil makes. 😉

and today’s inspiration was by this lil cutie!

Fun day in Indy!

It was a great day! Hubs and I both had the day off together!

Which is always awesome!

And it’s Beltane!! And it’s my three month salon day- yep every three months or so- I go and get the hair touched up. Well today I was also able to use my points and so I got the Naked on the Run palette: Eyeshadow, blush, shimmer, mascara, eye liner and lip gloss. Small enough to carry in my purse!


Then it’s summer and I want a lighter foundation, so once again, Urban Decay to the rescue. Can’t wait to try it tomorrow. 😉 And finally another Killer Queen fragrance from Katy Perry, this is the Spring/Summer Floral scent and mmmm it smells really pretty! I spritzed some on earlier and eight hours later you can still smell it.


Tomorrow is FCBD aka Free Comic Book Day, it’s also my day to get my mani/pedi. Can’t wait to try the 24 karat gold from OPI!! as usual there will be pix on my Instagram! 😀 As well as a review of the products after I give them a try tomorrow.

For my friends in Muncie, I’ll be down tomorrow for FCBD. Hope to find my friend, Jason’s new location. LOL

 Here’s a quick collage of moi and my girlie goodies!!

fun day in indy

Hopefully you can see the change in my hair color?

I’ll take a better photo tomorrow outside! 😉


Today’s thankful thoughts

Leave a comment

At the moment, I’m really thankful I only agreed to work four hours today. LOL 😀

My sinus allergies are overworking, and my right eye is continuously watering, to the point, that people are asking me, “What’s wrong, are you okay?” Yes. I’m fine, thank you. Allergies. arrrgh! lol

So in about thirty minutes, woohoo! I get to leave and go home to write. I have attempted to do a little bit, but my dang type A…I’ve gone through and re-read it, noticing things that I needed to correct- N O W. LOL 😛 so I think I’ve written six omg Six new words.

As soon as I get home, get some meds and more coffee in me, I’m off to the keyboard! It’ll be Writing time! Woohoo!


Oh I’m also thankful for friends that get my silliness. Ran into one earlier today and they made me-well yeah, not really. Follow them to the local mall, and viola, Claire’s is not only carrying TokiDoki now, but a line from Katy Perry, Kitty Purry. Squee!!!! (the rest of the story to today’s IOTD) and she got me a new iphone case, I snagged me a kitty ears headband. LOL $2.00 halloween clearance, and oooh it has sparklies in it!

unnamed (2)

Sparkly cat ears =^.^=

unnamed (1)

Iphone case =^.^= Kitty Purry

Her photos made me giggle, her article is making me happier! It’s always fun to try out new makeup looks. 

I’m coming up with an Autumn inspired look. no really really! No orange lipstick though… I don’t do orange lips. LOL 😀
