Hello, fine people. I hope your weekend was grand. Mine was spent writing on my laptop, just like now. Some things will never change. Except that by the end of the semester I’ll probably have carpel tunnel. But that’s just something I’ll have to deal with. I am often inspired by makeup I find in magazines. I was extremely inspired by the January 2011 Glamour and their beautiful cover girl, Reese Witherspoon. (Read the interview Here.)   Divine! And that… Read more »

Perhaps it was Monday’s Post that inspired me, or perhaps it was my deep, psychological need to alienate men, but I found myself fixated by pink this week. Why? Please, allow me to illustrate: 1) Pink can be romantic and sweet. Take, for instance, this Park Guell dress: It just begs to be worn to a museum on a Saturday afternoon. I don’t know why, that’s just what popped into my head. And how about this Pas de Trois Skirt? I would… Read more »

If you thought I’d leave you hanging/ if you think I have enough original material/ if you didn’t read it on Facebook, here is the poem I wrote on Saturday, and of which I spoke yesterday: “Repressed Duality” You’re a poison, You’re a monster, You’re a consuming Fire of Rage. You’re pedantic, Ostentatious, The only one Narcissus could envy.

Since I could write and since my grandmother gifted me a unicorn diary (with a lock!) when I was five, I have been fond of expressing myself with DRAMATIC FLARE! And sketches! And paltry excuses for song lyrics! And melodramatic poetry! Let’s take this example from 12/14/02. I was 13. Unbridled Life It’s a cruel Life “In This Cruel Life” You’re the last thing I think of When I fall asleep. You’re the first thing I think of When I wake… Read more »

This may (not) come as a surprise, but I am single. So single, it would seem, that Facebook feels the need to remind me of that fact Every. Single. Day. “Want to meet Christian singles?” it taunts me in the sidebar of nefarious advertisements. I am usually able to smirk and say “Yes, of course,” or “Not on Zoosk, I don’t.” But recently the ads have become a little more, shall we say, aggressive. “All alone?” One read the other… Read more »

Hello my darlings. Today is an important day, as it begins my timely, predictable posting on this here weblog. Please be excited. Every Monday the post will be beauty-related and titled “Makeup Monday: Weekly Theme.” You can see a prime and not obvious example of this on this very post. If you know me, you will know that I have a burning addiction to makeup and all beauty products. I should probably seek counseling, but I just recently vowed to… Read more »
