Christmas Lights and lazy makeup look

Every winter the Toledo Zoo has something call The Lights Before Christmas. Pretty much they decorate the zoo with over one million lights. Many people come to the zoo this time of year because it is quite beautiful. I didn't get very many pictures because the crowds were rather large when we went. On that note, I'd definitely recommend going earlier in December, rather than near Christmastime because it is much more fun when there are less people.

These are just a few examples, the whole zoo is decked out and there are also animal shapes done in lights and lights that blink along to music as well. If you're ever in the area you should check it out :]

Here's a simple look I did a few weeks ago. It's just some brown eyeshadows from my 88 palette, natural blush (also from a CS palette) and chapstick. It's hardly worth posting, but I figured I'd show you what I put on when I'm feeling lazy (which is often).

I think next post I might show you a few things I've bought recently (like the new Hello Kitty perfume) or maybe my New Years Eve makeup... hmmmm

Christmas Eve makeup

I know this is late, but I figured I would show you anyway :]

I spent Christmas Eve at Tom's grandma's house (on his father's side) as usual. I was going for a smokey silver eye to go with my outfit. I didn't get a full-body picture that night, but I wore an oversized grey/blue sweater belted with black leggings. Belted oversize sweaters with leggings have kind of become my "uniform" this winter. It's just to comfortable & easy and it looks put together.

I apologize for the lighting, I took these in my boyfriend's (poorly lit) bedroom right before we left. And's wintertime in gets dark at like 5:00 :[ Colors are washed out and whatnot, but you get the idea of it, right? :]

I hope everyone is having fun and staying warm! I'm absolutely loving school this semester (so far)!

Life Update

Happy New Year, everyone!

I know it's late, but I've been busy getting ready for school (which started this week). I have quite a few pictures stored up so you can look forward to seeing some makeup, a lens review with a creepy look, and some uber short fringe.

So what happened to me in 2010? Well...
-I became a college sophomore
-I turned 19
-Took out my lip ring
-Found out the my dad had skin cancer
-Found out that Dad is healthy :D
-Tom's mom started & finished chemo and started radiation (she is also doing fantastic, cancer is completely gone, radiation is just a precaution)
-Tom and I celebrated our 4th year together
-I finally quit my job
-I had a ton of fun with my friends and family

Even with the low points, some of which were really horrible, I had a pretty good year. I hope 2011 will be better!

I'll leave you with one of my many 2010 makeup looks

I used Coastal Scents 88 palette on my eyes and Mac Viva Glam IV on my lips. It's simple, but it works for going to the mall :]

Hope everyone that has school enjoys their classes and has fun!
