Back to Black

Sacramento, CA

It’s been a very long time since I’ve updated here! First thing that you’ll notice is a new look, which I’m really happy with. Flexibility, transformations, and not taking anything personally are the only things that I know for sure as of late. With that said, what better time to update than in the beginning […]

Identity Crisis

Scary mommy, indeed

Rather than post the usual links without commentary, I’m going to address something that’s been going on as of late. Right now I’m sitting here listening to British Sea Power and I feel like a fraud. Yeah, I do. I’ve been into beauty since I was a little girl and have been an officially licensed […]

Look at Cate Blanchett! I love that Intelligent Life used a picture of her that’s more akin to what she really looks like vs. her ads for SKII. Don’t get me wrong, I do think that Cate looks great in her ads. In both pictures, you’ll still notice the lovely quality of her skin. Excellent, […]

My Crush with Eyeliner

Mac Fluidline Blacktrack

I am smitten I’m the real thing (I’m the real thing) Have you seen her come around? My crush with eyeliner If I had to say that I had a crush on anything right now, it would be with eyeliner. Maybe not a crush, but a deep, deep intense like. More than a Facebook like, […]
