5. What are your weekend plans?
Going to see the X-Men movie, I think. I also need to go clothes shopping.

I have a bit of news. I am taking an amazing opportunity that fell into my lap and moving into doing more technical writing. I’m still staying connected with my current position, as they’re like family to me. However, this means I need to level up my wardrobe a lot. It also means I may be posting less frequently as I try to get acclimated to the new position. If you’re interested in doing a guest post, please let me know by sending me an email .

Some links…
Hebridean Sprite did a lovely interview of me here. Thank you!
Grey has declared it the month of the Vampire. I approve. I LOVE vampires. Give me Eric or Marie and I’m happy. Also she’s got a new contest going on. You should enter it! I’m going to.
If you have never visited The Pink Lady J’s youtube channel, you should go and subscribe! I did. Also, you should watch her Natural Makeup Parody. Dave and I were both ROFL’ing.
Jacqueline did a gorgeous teal look here. I love how the shadow frames her eyes. So pretty!
Zoffe did a beautiful look here with this awesome glossy lip!
And check out Kelly’s take on Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara.

To get you in the mood for X-Men, go see Pixie ala Mode’s and Erin’s takes on Mystique. They’re both lovey and unique.

Beauty is all around us. You just need to open your eyes and drink it in.

      I thought Thor was so fun. How did you like it?

        I loved Thor. It was quite fun. I liked that Natalie Portman wasn’t really exactly a love interest, but a friend.
