A Personal Reflection on the Idea of Shia LaBeouf... →
This made me so bummed when I read it earlier. I was having a bad day already and then I see my favorite ladymag type website taking shots at my favorite handsome actor man. At first, reading the title I thought maybe it would be a rumination on a strange personal connection with the LaBeouf, like someone who finds his guarded candor in interviews inordinately captivating, or who sympathizes...
Got my last couple of manicures at the nearest...
They do a pretty good job! The artwork isn’t quite as clean as you expect from the typical nail shop but if you’re willing to let them practice on you, it’s a less expensive alternative. Tends to take awhile, though. Even so, I might be addicted. No surprise if I turn out to be there every week.
My favorite drag queen: Carmen Carrera, and my favorite topic as of late: manicures! I’ve heard all these tips before, except for the bit about using cooking spray to set your nail polish?!? But I have heard about using hairspray for the same reason…anyone familiar with either method?
Ugh why did I already just spend $110 on shoes
If I end up taking back the amazing hundred dollar oxfords I got, I’m SO getting these. Utterly amazing.
Plucked my eyebrows for the first time since The...
The Incident being me allowing a lady at a random manicure shop to wax my eyebrows, which resulted in a horrible reaction on my eyelids that lasted for a month. I think that after my efforts they came out sufficiently good enough to merit making my first GIF ever: Now if I could just do something about my hair..sigh.
Also went to see Tree of Life this weekend
As it turns out, I ended up leaving early, not because I hated it, but because I ended up getting sick from a combination of stress and swirly camerawork. I really regretted having to leave, because I thought it was a really great film. Plus, Brad Pitt being all dadly in horn-rimmed glasses and crewcut?
Midnight movie at my favorite theater last night
One more down in my quest to see every Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez movie at the New Bev. Since it was a midnight show, we went to Toi on Sunset for a late dinner beforehand. Crispy honey duck = love. I was working a nautical/rockabilly kinda look, I thought I looked really cute. Didn’t get a great picture though:
I've been thinking about getting another tattoo
I got my first one around a year ago. Here’s a shot from back then: It’s an Immaculate Heart of Mary with my own twist. I cut back on the number of swords to emphasize the flowers, which are a purple rose and a pink lotus. Roses are traditionally depicted with the Immaculate Heart, and I just likes poiple. As for the lotus, it has a role in Buddhist symbolism as well as being a...
Birthday trip to Disneyland!
Having gotten a year’s pass to Disneyland for my birthday last year, I had just enough time to make one last trip to check out the new rides, Star Tours: The Adventure Continues and Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. I was most excited about Ariel’s Adventure, and it was fun if a little disappointing. There were a few bugs during the ride, and only a couple of really truly OMG!...
Got my nails fixed!
Good news/bad news
Good news is, I cleaned the destroyed nail polish off my fingertips and that simple act made me feel immeasurably better: Bad news is, all of the cleaning products and scrubbing exacerbated the matching cracks developing in both of my thumbnails, even with gloves.
I was in desperate need of a travel bag, so one trip to Walmart later I’m the proud owner of a new Caboodles “Le Sophistique” bag set (in the center below). If only I could have gotten one of the amazing old school ones I remember from my childhood, like the ones up there ^^^^^^ (I have looked on ebay, but not religiously or anything). By the way, apparently Caboodles have...
With any of the Miley Cyrus shit, or any of that Vanessa Hudgens shit — I would...– Megan Fox (via enchantingwords) I love Megan Fox so much. I was reading reviews of her new straight-to-DVD movie and so many of the reviewers spend so much more time critiquing the “Megan Fox Brand” than saying anything about her actual performance. Frankly I think her willingness to...
