Top Knots & Happy Buns

surprise!!!! i finally did my top knot/bun correctly. i have been going about it all wrong. my hair isn’t long any more, hasn’t been in over 2 years. sometimes when i am being lazy, i like to throw my hair in a bun, or as some folks call it a “top knot” *shrug*. when i wear my hair curly, its nice and big and fluffy (fluffy? lol). when i wear my hair straight, my bun looks like a baby ninja bun. i was doing my bun wrong. an injustice.

i found this video on youtube, and it worked. i love my non mini/baby bun. and this was done in under 10 minutes (partially because i was running late and my daughter was banging on the door..shes at that age where she likes to open doors and gets upset when she cant)


happy buns!

Sinful Colors, Vacation Time #809

KleanColor Nail Lacquer, Neon Pink #20

KleanColor Nail Lacquer, Clear Top Coat

love, love, love this look. BUT!, my nail polish is already chipping *sad face*. granted, im always cleaning, typing, or doing something with my hands but gosh, its only been 1 day. i think im going to do this look again at the end of this week and use a better quality top coat polish. maybe that will help????

“..then your lipstick, Cleopatra”

i really wish there were more creative (musically and visually) artists like Frank Ocean..well no, they are, you just have to find them

i was hoping the video for Pyramids would have covered the whole song, especially the beginning but that’s okay : )


Pantone Color Reports: Fall 2012, Spring 2013

Fall 2012 Favs: Tangerine Tango, Bright Chartreuse, Honey Gold, Rose Smoke

Spring 2013 Favs: Grayed Jade, Poppy Red, Nectarine, Lemon Zest

im now more inspired to use these colors in my makeup looks, although i love my everyday makeup look which usually consists of shades of copper, gold, brown, rose pink, and brown, there’s nothing wrong with pops of color right?

what say you? which colors are your Pantone picks?


Versace SP13
