Pretty Things

I'm going to be branching out from just makeup talk on the blog from now on. I won't be posting clothes reviews or anything but I'll occasionally point some things I like out.

Such as...Urban Outfitter's Suede & Canvas pumps.

The suede is the coral, and the canvas is the taupe. They're available in a multitude of other colors here and here. UO describes it as
"Essential pump with canvas uppers and a chunky wrapped heel. Cushioned footbed; rubber strikes at the sole. Exclusive to Urban Outfitters. Imported. Spot clean.
* 3.5" heel
* Fits true to size
* Cotton canvas"

I love them so much and they're really comfortable. The only thing is that its 48$. Eeek! Maybe if it goes on sale sometime.

What d'you think? & what do you think of my decision to branch out of makeup?

EOTD: French Grey

Please excuse the brows, I cleaned them up a few days ago. Anyways, one of my favorite French Grey EOTDs, very simple.

I used:
MAC french grey
MAC carbon
Shu uemura seal brown H9 hard brow pencil

News Update

Wow, I don't even know what to do anymore. I finally found a good template but now that I have time to post, I think most of my readers must've unsubscribed or something, or the followers App isn't working because I changed URLs.

Anyways point of the rant is that I had a great blog going and then I changed the URL and now its back to anonymity, effectively wasting the nearly 2 years I'd spent working for it. Ugh.

Back to makeup--I hope to be posting more regularly now. Any requests for reviews?

Giveaway Time!

I'm lucky to have the opportunity to host a giveaway with CSN stores! If you've never heard of CSN stores, they're a chain of mostly furniture items which range from pet items, fitness equipment, tv stands, office supplies and the regular home decor.

What's up for grabs?

A 40$ gift card for any product you find here. Personally, my favorite site is this one, All Modern, but definetly have fun browsing.

One comment per person. Leave a comment with a URL of what you'd like to purchase with the gift card and make sure to leave an email that I can contact you with.

I will select the winner based on a random number generated by an outside site.

However, for more than one entry, you can post about this giveaway on your own blog and post the URL as a separate comment.

This contest will end on July 1 at midnight GMT Central US/Canada time. That gives you two weeks to enter!

*please note: by entering my contest, I now reserve the right to give your name, email and mailing address to CSN store representatives. This is not unwarranted, because they are the ones who will mail your prize. Giveaway sponsored by CSNstores. Open to US & Canadian residents only.
