Dear Office Building,
You are so cute and festive! Makes coming to work in this better.
Test run for my xmas gifts. I think these things will die. Must rethink.
Thank you for sacrificing yourself to my work doodles.
Someone is replacing you in my shopping text hall of fame.
The Mountain Goats - Cry For Judas
New song. New, awesome song.
But I am a just a broken machine and I do things I don’t really mean
This is a good song. You should listen to this song. This is how I feel about the Mountain Goats. They’re pretty great.
Do you have a mirror where you can see the back of your head when you are getting ready? No? Me neither! Do you also try to take photos of the back of your head to see whats going on back there only to realize that you have absolutly no idea where the back of your head actually is? One of those photos is literally just my fridge.
Step 1: This is my eye clean. It looks ok.
Step 2: This looks like a photo where I realize how tired I am/look.
Step 3: This is where I realize that I don’t have black eyeliner, only some shade of brown but decide to just Go For It!
Step 4: There is more brown eyeliner here, but I am really freaking out about how fucked up my eyebrow looks. WHAT IS GOING ON EYEBROW???
Step 5: I remember that I have some black powder eyeliner and try to add that to fix things.
Step 6: IF I JUST KEEP ADDING BLACK IT WILL GET BETTER RIGHT?!?!? I look tired.
Step 7: Oh I think I have brushed on some green shadow at this point, why I thought that would help I have no idea.
Step 9: How do people take such good photos of themselves on all their DIY tutorials??? Why doesnt everyone look like they are experiencing soul crushing exhaustion?!?!?!?!
Step 8: Welp, that’s sort of the shape I was going for, right?
So here is a mostly finished eye. After I finished the other eye I thought it would be really funny to cover one in dark blue shimmer powder and the other in dark green. I forgot I had done this and went to the party like that. No one noticed????
DIY - Rachel Bilson eye makeup for the red carpet tutorial. 60’s eye makeup.
I have had this saved for aaaaages as something that I wanted to try. I finally decided to try last night before I went to a party. It was a struggle. Turns out wearing dark eyeshadow to a party when you aren’t used to it results in lots of smearing and drunk lookingness.
I really like Dr. Pan, he seems like a good guy. He has donation buckets set up in the state capitol if you find yourself around and in a giving mood.
More fun work activities: nail art.
our holiday edition is going to be the best GOOD yet. We will have a Santa Photo Booth, a Hot Chocolate Bar, and plenty of holiday cheer!
