Sweet Spring

The vernal equinox has finally arrived here in the northern hemisphere! While there is still some patches of snow melting off where I live, I can't help but look forward to the bright, breezy days. When I think about spring, the first thing that comes to mind is flowers. When I see tulips and daffodils popping up, I know that spring has finally arrived.

It was still gloomy and gray here a few days ago, so I reached for some soft pinks and peaches to remind me of the fresh flower petals of spring.

Used a new dress for the background -- can't wait to wear it!

Didya miss my flashing numbers?
  1. Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Strawberry: One of the brightest lipglosses I own! I thought the soft color selection needed a little pick-me-up.
  2. MAC Sheertone Blush in Springsheen: What's a spring post without Springsheen?
  3. Benefit Eyeshadow in Nice Melons: This iridescent light peach is my favorite spring eyeshadow ever.
  4. Sephora Eyeliner in Flashy Pink: More like a subtle flash! It always brightens up my eyes without being too noticeable like white eyeliner.
  5. AVON Eye Pencil in Floraluscious: The name says it all, luscious flowers please!
  6. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Honey Bunny: This pale salmon color screams pinky nude spring dresses to me! And the name, Easter anyone?
  7. Lancome Juicy Tube Gloss in Kiwi Slice: Fresh cut grass, eh?
The shade names ended up painting a rather befitting picture of spring, huh? Very fruity. Kept them in mind and surprisingly enough, the colors all coordinated with each other. Don't you love it when the pieces just fall together? Happy spring, everyone! Are you looking forward to the warmer weather?

A blog lost in time...

Yes, you're right.


I know, I dropped off the face of the earth. Especially after promising that I'd be back soon. I'm terrible. At first, my excuse was that I had to finish my senior research paper (a graduation requirement at my school), but then I finished that almost three weeks ago. And now, all I've been doing when I come home is pass out on my bed and catch up on all the sleep I've lost these past six years. I've been awful. I've been a mess.

This blog has been crying out for me in my head all this time, but those cries have been left unanswered. I'd tried many times to appease those cries by taking pictures of some new acquisitions, but never got to posting them. I've lost the spark. But it's still lit, just barely, singeing the edges of my mind, occasionally, to remind that it's still there.

How poetic.

In short, I really regret neglecting this baby of mine for so long. I need to get back.

Wearing MAC Satin Taupe on the eyes and NARS Flamenco on the lips.

In other news, I've heard back from 6 of the 10 colleges I applied to. I've been accepted to all of them so far, and I am bracing myself for the last four which will come out in the next two weeks. Life is moving so fast, but this blog has been stuck in the past. Time to change that.

I've also missed talking with you gals oh so so much.
