Sea Queen

08 right side wm ff

A voice called me, from deep in the sea, “Dry your eyes my dear fishermen your ass belongs to me” – Cruel Mistress, Flogging Molly

Hello Guppies and Dolphins!

Today I bring you the Sea Queen. I’ve always been a little obsessed with the sea. I grew up listening to a lot of Celtic music (traditional, rock, Scot fusion, Irish punk, etc) and I love sailor songs. One that I drew a lot of inspiration for this look is Flogging Molly’s Cruel Mistress. The song is about him not getting over a girl on dry land and then setting out for the sea to get over her (it doesn’t work). Now the Sea, turbulent, cold and ruthless is his cruel mistress.  Continue reading

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks Review & Swatches: Red & Orange

Milani Lipstick reds & oranges feb 2013 013

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Milani recently revamped, reformulated and relaunched their lipstick line and I am in love with it. Their lipstick is now called Color Statement, it comes in a shiny mirrored tube with a section at the bottom that shows the color. The finishes for this lipstick are: Vinyl, Cream, Matte, Pearl, Shimmer and Metallic. Vinyl is my favorite; it has intense color payoff with an almost gloss-like shine- how about we do? I was sent 7 to review, the Reds & Oranges. Continue reading

video thumb2Hey Guys & Dolls!

Longtime no blog!  As you may have noticed, I didn’t do any tutorials during December, and pretty much only posted my giveaways here. For most of the last 5 weeks I’ve been really sick- I had a horrible cold followed by 2-3 weeks of bronchitis (I’m on an inhaler and feeling MUCH better!). I thought the perfect way to slip back into the blogging groove would be a Disney Princess themed look! Continue reading

Sleeping Beauty ~Princess Aurora~

1 sleeping beauty WM

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Sleeping Beauty is one of my all-time favorite Disney Movies- when I first started dating my (now) husband I would have a hard time sleeping so he would play with for me. I know it’s so cute you could puke right? The original tale of Sleeping Beauty is quite grotesque, so it balances out. HAHA.

My inspiration for the color palette came from Flora and Merryweather fighting over the color of the dress they made for Briar Rose, the name they gave the Princess Aurora. Of course I had punch up the color intensity, use a gallon of glitter, and 3 pink lipsticks- just a usual day in my world!
