Roaring 20s

I've been away for a while again, but things have been hectic with school! A little announcement: I got into a law school! I am officially going back to school in September to become a lawyer!
But anyway. I was on Pinterest the other day and saw this gorgeous photograph:
It made me want to do a '20s inspired look so badly that I decided to put aside a little time today to do just that. I only have two pictures since eye close-up shots would be boring, but here we go:

And a little bit of photoshopping to make it look all vintagey or something :)

New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year everyone! 2013! We made it through another end of the world and get to live on. 2013 will be the best yet, right ; ). 
Anyway, so here is what I did for last night; New Year's Eve is about shimmer and sparkle and dazzle and glamour, but I don't have any glitter! So I reached for Sugarpill's Goldilux since it is the glitteriest (I make up words now, too) and most dazzling gold eyeshadow ever. I could have gone gold + black or gold + navy (MUG's Nautica is beautiful), but this combination just sat there screaming my name. It turned out amazing, I got compliments on it all night. 

I had the most difficult time getting good pictures, though; the sparkles didn't show and the huge eyelashes kept make the camera focus wrong! But here's what I got and some additional pictures from my iPod.
Funny story before the pictures; I ended up taking the eyelashes off before going out. Lesson learned: Don't nap with falsies on if you don't have any glue with you to fix them when you wake up and they're half falling off.
