A Decade of Selfies: 2007-2017

523

I got this idea from Hunida’s post. I think it’s so cool to look back at older photos and see how your appearance has changed and progressed. Personally, I don’t think I’ve changed that much, aside from some different hairstyles and questionable makeup choices. I was 18 (turning 19) in 2007, and I am 29 now.¬† The selfie at the top of this post is my most current one.

Fall Makeup Look: Bonfire

227

I felt like doing another Fall makeup look this weekend. You can see last week’s look here if you missed it. This week, I was feeling inspired by bonfire’s, so I tried to incorporate that into the look.

Here are the products I used:

  • Makeup Revolution – Pro Base Blur Primer
  • Makeup Revolution – Eye Primer
  • Chella – Eyebrow Cream in shade Tantalizing Taupe
  • NYX – BB Cream in shade Nude
  • NYX – No Filter Finishing Powder in shade Alabaster
  • Mannakadar Beauty – Blush in shade Paradise
  • ColourPop – Highlighter in shade Glazed
  • Make Up For Ever – Mascara
  • Makeup Revolution – Selfie Eyeshadow Palette
  • Makeup Revolution – Love the Revolution Palette
  • Shany – Color Rainbow Eyeshadow Palette

I did not use any lipsticks or lip creams. I used eyeshadows instead to represent smoke and ash.

Witchy Vibes

199

There’s still a little less than a week left until the Autumnal Equinox, but I am getting really excited for Fall and could not resist dressing up and doing a Fall makeup look. I started out with clear gloss on my lips and then vamped it up a bit with a darker lip color. The main items I used included BH Cosmetics’ Wild & Radiant Palette, Makeup Revolution’s Love the Revolution palette, and ColourPop’s Matte Lip Cream in shade Viper, which are pictured below. Other items I used that aren’t pictured include NYX BB Cream in shade Nude, Makeup Revolution’s Eye Primer, Makeup Revolution’s Pro Base Blur Primer, Chella’s Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Cream, Ciat√© London’s Wonderwand Gel Kohl Eyeliner, Tarte’s Lights Camera Lashes Mascara, Maybelline’s Shine Sensational Gloss, and ColourPop’s Highlighter in shade Glazed.

Throwback Thursday: Pink Hair

162

Since I rocked my pink hair a few months before I started this blog, I thought I would do a Throwback Thursday post about it. Aside from my blonde, it’s my most favorite hair color I’ve ever had. I definitely want to go pink again sometime in the future. I got this done at the salon, and it was quite expensive. I washed my hair two to three times a week, and the color lasted about a month. I think next time I might try to dye it myself, as a cheaper alternative, although it probably won’t look as good.

100 Followers! + Shopping Trip

179

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed me so far! I have now passed 100 followers! I opened this blog two and a half months ago, and I was nervous that nobody would be interested and I would be talking to myself. I didn’t think I would gain this many followers in such a short time. I do admit I get down on myself sometimes because I see other bloggers who started theirs around the same time (or even after me), and they have twice as many followers now. I have to remind myself that it’s not a competition or a popularity contest. As long as I’m having fun doing what I’m doing (which I am), then that’s what matters. Of course I want people to like and be interested in what I have to say. I think that’s something we all want. I’m just glad I’ve been able to continually grow my blog.

Yesterday, I went to the mall on a little shopping trip. I honestly can’t remember the last time I went to the mall. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m a bit of a homebody. I also like shopping at stores that we don’t have in the mall here, so I tend to buy everything online. Well, I attempted to buy jeans online a while back too, and that didn’t work out so well. It’s a shame too because I absolutely loved those jeans, but despite being the size I normally wear, I couldn’t pull them up over my butt. From that moment, I decided any time I needed new jeans I would have to try them on before I bought them. That’s what triggered my trip to the mall. I’ve been wearing the same jeans for about a decade now. They got to the point where I couldn’t wear them much longer. There were big holes in the butt (where I had to wear a long shirt to cover it), and rips up the leg. I needed new jeans, asap.
