Temporary Hair Chalk/Spray

For the babes Christmas party, I wanted to do something different... add some color to my hair to spice my look up a bit (I had an all black dress, will post pics soon)

I tried all of these leading up to the party....

My final thoughts:

This was the WORST
I don't know why I thought putting chalk in your hair would somehow work?
It's really pigmented when you first apply it, but you literally cannot do anything or else it *poof*  disappears into the air, leaving you with hair that just feels kind of.... gross.

This spray was better... I use that term loosely. The pictures lead you to believe you can get a Ronald McDonald head of hair with this can. 
Not True. 
It takes a few coats to get it to show up (however, my hair is on the dark side), but by that time? Your hair is sticky, and hard, and looks dirty. This was ok if you're going for subtlety, one coat wasn't bad. 

Ok, temporary highlights is definitely not the way to describe this. LOL
Basically, it makes your hair kind of gold? but it takes alot to get there with hair the color of mine.
Better off getting a can of gold spray paint.

Needless to say, these sucked. I was not impressed.

Next time I will opt for a temporary dye.

Mani Monday

I picked up a new Shellac shade:

A semi-sheer peachy nude color that's very pretty, feminine and clean. I actually had went to the supply store with a different shade in mind, but this one caught my attention. 

I added a minimalist black detail and voila! Something different for the week!

(It's a strikingly close match to OPI's "Samoan Sand" that I picked up a few months ago)

Thinking out Loud

SO obviously... I've been addicted to this song. 

Trying to learn it on the guitar. 

Sidenote: How adorable is Ed Sheeran dancing...

True Match Lumi

I've used the same brand of foundation for years... probably since High School. 

I've tried plenty, always hoping to stumble across something better. 
I've never had much luck, until now. 

This foundation surprised me, and the primer is amazing too.
Glad I decided to try them.

Near Town

The Amazing Broken Man - Near Town

"Hold your breath for a while
Always some hope in denial
What is lost might just come back
Only in vicous thoughts
You fall,
It eats you to the bone"

Getting Netflix was both a horrible and a great idea for me. 

Horrible in that I've been binge-watching series after series.... 

My newest is Skins
I'm only on season 4, but I'm hooked! 

Mostly, I love the grungy - wild - reckless vibe.
I also adore the accents and super fun lingo.

The soundtracks are *dope* too.

Today marks one year that I have been a non-smoker. 

I quit with the help of my e-cigs, but I don't even use that anymore now. 

Honestly, I never thought I'd be able to say that.

Feels good.

I bought 2:
One Black
One Silver

*These really helped when I was out with friends, or having a craving.

Feelin Myself

Love this jam.

Actually, I like the whole Pinkprint album.

I like Nicki, mostly when she goes hard and reminds me so much of Foxy Brown... who I fuckin' love.

Beyonce and Nicki. LOVE these 2 together!
