Winter FOTD

Hi guys! How are you all doing on this beautiful beautiful day?

The weather is absolutely ridiculously amazing here in Gainesville. It's chilly yet still sunny. I love love love this weather. I wish I could be outside all day instead of getting stuck here inside the library. Si senoritas...my thesis part 3 is due this Thursday...and I've yet to start. I know, I know, it's my fault, but hey, a part of being young is mastering the ability to procrastinate, no?

Anyways, since today's kinda cold, I did a "photoshoot" with my cozy winter down jacket. Yes, I felt like an Eskimo. I love this jacket though. It totally saved my ass in Hungary when it was 5 degree Celsius.

Le Look:

What I used:

Face:
--Skinfood Aloe BB Cream as foundation
--Coverblend concealer under the eyes (my dark circles are HORRENDOUS)
--EDM Start to Finish to set (forgot the color)

Cheeks:
--NYX Taupe blush to contour
--Trucco blush in maple.... or something (sorry, I'm really bad w/ names. I'm in the lib right now, so i will check when I get home. I LOVE this blush though. )
--Stila Kitten e/s to highlight

Eyes:
--Stila smudgepot in black on top
--L'oreal HIP chrome e/l in Blue as bottom liner. (LOOOOVE this! It's even better than UD 24/7 e/l)
--L'oreal HIP chrome e/l in Silver on the inner corner and waterline. (this is like liquid silver. hawtness!)

Lips:
--nothing, I threw on some Blistex Deep Renewal later though. That stuff is awesome.

Sorry, no close ups this time...but CAMWHORING starts in 3....2....1!

My cool face

Kisses for my readers!


I was wearing China Glaze n/p in Pure Elegance. It's very soft and feminine.

Am I too old to play coy?

Goofy face never fails...

Last but not least, Tao laughing her ass off, AKA my fave!


I hope you enjoyed that. I know it's difficult to stay positive in this world that's gone mad with efficiency, assignment, deadlines, etc, but please try to stop and smell the roses. Appreciate the little things in life, such as the beautiful weather, will allow us to stay sane for just a little longer.

Take care and remember to smile.
Tao
