She Burns Like the Sun

Hey guys!  So you've heard me talk again and again about the sunburn I got last month, well here's a picture of what it looked like after the worst of the peeling was over.  I was still pink and so sore, but at this point I had gotten most of the dead skin off.  And this is probably the first time you've even seen me without a spot of makeup on...so yeah, be nice!



But anyways, this is what I had to deal with for a while.  It hurt too much to wear makeup (and makeup just made me look crusty anyway!) so I just slathered on moisturizer a thousand times a day and kept an icepack near at all times.

Hopefully my bare muff hasn't horribly disturbed your day!

Red Lips and Floral Dress... Again.

Hello everyone!  Does anyone else always pair a certain outfit with the same makeup, like every time you wear it?  I do... this floral dress is the best example.  If I wear this without screaming bright red lips, the outfit just feels incomplete.  You've probably seen this exact look and outfit together before, but I like it so I'll show it again :]



I wear this dress a lot, probably once a week.  It's so easy, just slip it on and go.  I wear a lot of dresses in the summer for that reason, they're so easy and there's not so much cloth that you get overwhelmingly warm.


This lipstick is my favorite red and it's actually from Wet 'n' Wild (911D), so it's only like $1.99 or something like that.  On me it practically lasts all day, depending on what I eat and drink.  This is the first of their lipsticks that I have really liked.  I've tried several from the same line and they were all too drying and/or chalky and I hate the packaging, but this one is just really great.


I hope everyone has a great day!

"Bronzed Goddess"

Hey everyone!  Sorry for not posting in a while, my school started back up this week and I've been really busy.  I really like my classes so far, but I can tell they're going to be a ton of work.  I'm going to try to schedule a few posts at a time when I get enough free time to do it.

Anyways, this is a bronze/gold look I did back when Nymphette had her July makeup challenge calendar.  I this was for the "Bronzed Goddess" day, before I got that bad sunburn :P



I pretty much just used MAC products and my 88 palette.



I hope everyone is having a great weekend and if you're school just started I hope you're having fun!

More Nature

Hey guys, I've been to another metropark in our area a couple times over the past few weeks.  This one is called Oak Openings and it's huge.  I would say it's probably the prettiest park in Toledo and you should definitely visit it if you have the chance. Here are a few pictures from my visits.


I was trying to get a picture of wild turkeys, but they ran away!  :[

Still trying to photograph the turkeys!

Pretty sunset

Small meadow Tom and I stumbled upon

Another view of the meadow
This summer I've really been trying to take advantage of more of the things my area has to offer.  I'm sure I still have much to discover though!

Have a great day!
