brunette bangs

I got bored again and dyed my hair dark chocolate brown and cut some blunt bangs. I'm really happy with it and even went to get my blonde eyebrows and eyelashes tinted for the first time. The eyebrows turned out awesome. I've never been able to see them before just the powder shadow I fill them in with. I was hoping having tinted eyelashes would mean no more mascara...not really the case. Without makeup you can see all the way to the tips of my lashes now but they aren't black enough for me personally not to wear mascara. Either way I still feel like it was a worthwhile investment.

Today's list: tibi crochet dress, dvf leggings, ysl bag, balenciaga sunglasses

What to do with an old frame

I have a tendency to save things. Call me a hoarder if you want, but as an artist, I feel like there will be a use for everything. Today I realized that I had enough postcards to hang them together... so the use for this frame finally became apparent. I took eyelet screws from a regular picture framing kit and hung string between them in three rows. Then paperclipped the postcards to the string, simple right?! I already have plans to buy some regular closepins to hang watercolors in the same manner to even larger frames I've been keeping on my balcony for two years while I thought of a reason to use them. Hoarder maybe, but I'm glad now I kept them!

I recently bought a couple sally henson nail art pens, then went back and bought a couple more. They are so much fun! These horrible pics are of an Indian inspired design and a nail corset design I did recently. Maybe because of the daily nail, but I am recently much more interested in playing with nail polishes. Did you hear that American Apparel just added 12 new colors! I want them all! Especially Hunter and Manilla. They are 3 free like Butter London but half the price. Too bad you can't mix and match the 7-packs. Every one of them have at least one color I don't want.

Today's list: Ben Sherman pants, thrift store sweater, steve madden shoes, banana republic chain top, scarf bought in a tibetan store in Denver, ysl bag, and prada glasses.
Which reminds me, they help me to see my computer but at the end of the day I get a headache. Is there an adjustment period when you first wear glasses after your eyes have been straining or do I have the wrong rx...
