This is my third look for Yume-chan's contest, "Thou Shall Not Be The Same Girl Twice" where the challenge is to create five looks with only five pieces of makeup (palette = one piece). I'm still using the same makeup from Part I.

The name speaks for itself...

New CranberryCocolat Hurrrrrr...

Finally I had some time to get a hair cut and bang trim this past weekend! Woot woot. I'd noticed my layers had grown out and my hair just seemed long, straight and boring! Don't believe me? I'll show you! Nevermind, I'm too embarrassed to show the ragged state of my hair...but here it was before my hair cut (hair color dye L'oreal True Match 5N, the lighter parts of my hair are from highlights back in April):

Magazines and Magazine Scans: Cosmopolitan December

I bought the December Cosmo magazine and made sure I skimmed through it tonight because I'm guilty of having but hardly reading two magazine subscriptions this past year.

I read books way, way, WAY more than I read magazines. So every month when I get my magazine subscriptions, they get placed into a stack until I have nearly a year's worth of two magazines cluttering my room. I've noticed that I rarely buy magazines at newsstands anymore, partly out of guilt of having unread magazines at home, but also because I rarely see a magazine that I flip through and must have (Japanese magazines being the exception). Also, when I think I want a magazine but don't get it, I forget about it and life goes on, and literally new issues come and go.

Blog Makeover ♥

Hello, my lovelies!

Some of you may have noticed I gave my blog a new look, yippie!! I've been wanting to do this for a while (since the beginning of October), but I put it off because it was neither important nor urgent on my list of things to do. BUT...the thought has been nagging me for a while, especially as I started checking my bare blog daily, so I spent the last 24 hours playing with/working on this (with breaks of course, gotta sleep and eat!).

I used to have a website (I've had several, actually) and when I first started this blog, it was meant to be an addition to my website. Now, I've let my web hosting expire ($200-$320 to renew for the next 2-3 years? no thanks) and my domain, forwards to this blog. I'm still a Blogger newb...quite apparent tonight as I was cleaning through my labels for my new tag cloud and accidentally published two unfinished drafts, lol. I didn't even realize I'd done that until I saw comments on those entries in my e-mail.

Bye Bye November Pretty Pink Boxes

November My Pretty Pink Boxes sold out in two hours this morning!!

What the hell, people...I was asleep! lol Grrr...I was up 'til 5:30 a.m. so I was knocked out between 7 and 9 a.m., when you early bird bastards were buying up all the boxes! I had no idea they'd sell out so quickly...or I would have just stayed up another hour and a half. Oh well...saves me money this month. =)

Sooooo who got a November Pretty Pink Box? Don't worry, I won't shoot you...I'm just curious. ;)

Yesterday's Oprah Show featured Dr. Oz and his new book, You Being Beautiful, which just came out this month and is about how beauty and health are related. Of course I love all things beauty, want to be/stay healthy, and I love reading so what better than picking up a copy of this? It already has positive customer reviews on Amazon.

Lolita Diana

I felt like a doll in these Gothic Lolita inspired pictures, and it was a lot of fun as I'll prob never be able to wear that look elsewhere. =)

The Audacity of HOPE Indeed!!

I am so moved by today's outcome on our new President Elect Barack Obama!

It's amazing...I never thought I'd be interested in or truly qualified to take a stand on politics, and yet tonight I felt the electricity of witnessing American history happen in my very own lifetime! I feel so blessed that I could partake in making it happen, not to mention exercise my right to vote when so many people throughout history and the world have been denied that very fundamental right.

Victoria's Secret and Sephora Discount Codes

I don't know how long that deal is good for so don't sleep on it! UPDATE: As of Wednesday, 11/06, I've heard the codes don't work anymore. For those who missed it, sorry! =(

I ordered mine today. Original merchandise price $51.50 became $12 merchandise price + $5.99 shipping + 1.48 tax = $19.47!
