Update: why I've been AWOL

Hey everyone. This is just a super quick post to let you all know I'm still around. I haven't been able to check out anyone's blogs or do anything on mine due to work. Ugh. It sucks when work encroaches on your life and I'm sorry I sort of vanished without a trace. To say I've been busy is an understatement! Example: on Monday night I got home from work at 11pm, went to bed and then got up the next day to do it all over again. It won't be for long and I'm pretty sure that next week I'll be back in business. So thank you all for bearing with me. I miss you all so much! I'll catch you all real soon.
Olgie.

Eyeshadow: four old looks

Hi again everyone! Sorry I've been away, but I've been busy... planning my very first (very short) trip to Europe! I'm so excited. I leave at the end of June, so if you guys have suggestions for makeup brands I need to check out, please let me know. I'll be visiting Finland, England, France, Sweden and the Czech Republic. I plan to check out Sephora in France, of course, as well as Boots and things like that. Let me know if there's somewhere I need to visit!

All of these looks are from a few months ago. They were on a media card and I pretty much forget everything that was used. Sorry! At least with this first look I remember I used Aromaleigh Tracy (Fall Tapestry) on the lid.


Shimmery and matte neutrals with a green sheen.

Nails: nail polish mega post

I've been slack with the nail polish posts lately, so I've got three weeks worth of manis, although I've done some layering, so it looks like there's more than that.

First up, the amazing Ascalon from the A England (http://a-england.co.uk/) Legends collection. Ascalon is a holographic grey with a flash of purple duochrome. So amazing. It's got the usual incredibly smooth and even A England formula that dries nice and quickly. This was two coats.

Eyeshadow: golden green, purple and grey shimmer

I used some more of my Victorian Disco Cosmetics eyeshadows today, along with one of my new Revlon Diamond Lust eyeshadows, which worked much better for me this time around. It was all shimmery and not too dark, with the palest colour on the lid.
