Hello, Darlings! Please feast your eyes upon the new layout I’ve been working hard on, and also the triumphant return of Makeup Monday! (I know you’ve all missed it dreadfully.) Let’s dive right in! And, as always, let me know if you have any questions. Question 1: How do you keep dark lipstick in place? — Lady S. Well, Lady S., the first thing you need to consider is the finish of your lipstick. In general, matte lipsticks stay the… Read more »

Happy Monday! I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that the biggest oxymoron, um, ever? And yes, yes it is. The only way it isn’t an oxymoron is if you happen to spending this Monday in, say, Disney World, or Narnia. And if that is the case, why the heck are you reading my blog? Anywho, I triumphantly return to the blogosphere bearing gifts! My favorite fall makeup trends for 2012!! Let us dive right in! 1) Bushy Brows Or, at… Read more »

Happy Monday, everyone!! The blog officially got a face-lift for spring. And I love it. But enough about me, let’s talk makeup. One of the things I love the most about makeup is how each person brings something different to every look. Whether it’s the shape of your face, or your artistic interpretation, or just slight differentiation in products available to use, one look can adapt and change and become many times lovely. Enter my Saturday. I was playing around… Read more »

Hello my lovelies!! I hope all your spring breaking has left you mostly unbroken. Since no one really had anything to say about the Look Breakdown series, I thought I’d just continue it right along. Enter Jennifer Lawrence, my current girlcrush, and her beautiful covershoot for April’s Glamour. Feast your eyes, internet: And while I can’t gift you with her gorgeous grey-blue-green eyes, I can tell you how to steal this makeup! I think it’s such a beautiful mix of sultry… Read more »

It’s Friday. I’m not sure how it’s Friday and yet this week has dragged on and on and on forever and ever amen. Monday and Tuesday nights were spent at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo AKA my favorite place to go during “spring.” Monday we saw the Zac Brown Band. They put on a great show, but it was far too short. We were all wanting more. My favorite part (besides shrieking every song from the cheap seats) was… Read more »

Greetings, everyone! So I’m going to start a new thing on the blog, specifically concerning MM; Look Breakdowns. It occurred to me that it comes very naturally to me to be able to look at a picture and to then reproduce the makeup.  So I thought, hey, let’s do that on the blog! Today I thought we’d start with a look that’s both beautiful and easy to prove to you that you don’t need to be a makeup whiz or own a… Read more »

Prepare yourselves for the worst story you’ve ever read. I don’t mean worst as in shocking or heartbreaking but still worth a read. I mean completely pointless and arguably mind-numbing. I know. With an intro like that, how could you not keep reading? I was thinking about London. This is nothing strange. I adore London. It’s my favorite city in all the world. Well, up to this point and being only 23 and having been only to London. I spent a glorious… Read more »

It’s closing time. Not the 1998 Semisonic hit; we’re closing for August at work. If you don’t work in an accounting department, it’s where the acct dept (that’s official lingo) processes and closes all business transactions for the month. If you do work in an accounting department, you’re probably still at work and/or passed out over a highball of your nightcap of choice. How to describe the sensation… it’s kind of like the first time you realized the meaning behind… Read more »

Please tell me you’ve seen that SNL skit. Do yourself a favor and go watch it right now. RIGHTNOW. It’s old, from a time when Andy Samberg could be found neither on a boat nor doing the creep. But it’s worth it. I was reading in my new amazing book (What Jane Austen Ate and What Charles Dickens Knew) all about the gentry and nobility and the titled in Victorian England, and, yes, it’s enough to make your head spin. And… Read more »
