its as though i've struck drugstore gold.

(: the last three products i got from CVS have really blown me away. im sick of my stupid wordy rants, so im going to write no more than 3 short sentences about each product as to convey only the most import facts across to you all. and away we go..

true match foundation- blendable, perfect match, light consistency PERFECT coverage! look into it ladies. I am a mac NC 20 and a true match alabaster 1C

true match blush - more pigmented than mac. i got shade, N3-4 innocent flush, most amazing coral color ever. blushes are about breaking rules(: *

CG trushine lipstick in 400- AMAZING PINKY NUDE! no need for gloss <3.>

*as i am a little rule breaker i must add that the brush they give you with the blush is PERFECT as the product is highly pigmented the soft and flimsy brush helps create the perfect sun-kissed look.

I'll admit...

I'm a slightly 'emotional' shopper. not to say i get emotionally invested with my clothing choices, rather that i use shopping as a pick me up. In general, i use any kind of change, be it wardrobe, fitness, or intellectual as a catapult my of bad times. This method has been known to offer mixed results. anyone can get caught up in the initial rush when something has changed, the new possibilities, the new worlds that open up, and the new things one small change could lead to... but then reality sinks in, we're left with one lingering question: was it worth it?

Sure that expensive make up excited you, and those new clothes are undeniably cute, and nothing had been as thrilling as the nose or belly button piercing. but once the initial adrenaline is gone, and the power and strength you felt while making said changes fade away, will you feel disappointed, foolish, and even more powerless than when you started? or will you look around at whatever you've done and see that its what you wanted after all, and be thankful you felt free not to over think things for once.

this is a long, bazaar and kind of intense preamble to what i bought at forever 21.
yay shopping! hahah soooo here we go!

p.s. im hoping for the latter result (: but you never know...
p.p.s i ordered it tonight, i doubt it'll get here anytime in the next two weeks.

slow night, so long.

i have a lot of trouble sleeping. falling asleep and staying asleep are constant struggles. I've tried pills, teas, supplements, dream catchers,and even rearranging my room, but nothing works as well as music. I started creating what i call my own personal baby-Mozart-mixes about 8 months ago and its helped me so much. i leave each mix on repeat all night.

my current sleep soundtrack:

The Fear You Won't Fall - Joshua Radin
Promising Light - Iron & Wine
Mona Lisa - Grant-Lee Phillips
Friend Like You - Joshua Radin
Better Together - Jack Johnson

sweet dreams.

my teeth.

i think of my teeth as a badge of honor. i never had braces & yes my teeth are fucked up. but i was raised in a home without extra money for shit like that, and by a mother who has always thought i was beautiful regardless of what i wear, say, weigh, or think.

and when i think of my friends whose moms picked their outfits, put them on diets and instilled the need for makeup, i look at my teeth and realize i am so lucky.

they're my favorite imperfection.
