I’m trying to finally quit smoking again. The little bandages in my ear (in the blush shot) are Vaccaria seeds, for acupressure.

I wanted to wear some fun lashes for New Year’s Eve, and I decided to follow Pixiwoo’s sparkly lash New Year’s Eve tutorial. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out, especially considering it’s my first cut crease, and it was a bit intimidating. (Sorry I look kind of gormless in this shot; just dazed out while Greg was taking them, and didn’t have another full one with the lashes.)
These eyeshadows look silver to me in the palette, but apparently read as blue, or bluish, as I got several compliments today on matching my eyeshadow to my hair. I can see it – it does have a bluish tinge in the mirror. I suppose that’s appropriate for “gunmetal.” Anyhoodles!
