1950's spring pin-up pic of Ann Miller

March 13th-20th

Happy Nowruz! Finally, spring is here. The weather doesn’t really feel it but plants are budding and the plum trees are in bloom. I do feel optimistic. And I even have plants growing from seed inside. However, I am not as glam as Ann Miller in the pic above ūüėČ

Wet n Wild Silent Treatment Eyeshadow Trio Review & Swatch

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio Silent Treatment Swatch

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I’ve been more than pleased with every Wet n Wild eyeshadow that I have purchased in the past year. Early this year, Wet n Wild launched many more Color Icon Eyeshadow Trios and a few palettes. It’s March and I’ve finally been able to find them! Out of the trios, the one that I thought I’d get the most mileage out of is Silent Treatment. This is a plummy neutral trio.

December 5th to 12th:

More 1920’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Billie Dove

Photoplay 1929 Billie DoveJanuary 1929 (

I recently got my hair cut in a bob with bangs. I was going for more of a flapper look but it looks more like a 70’s take on the 20’s. ¬†Or better yet early 90’s Industrial fan. This is cool and I’m happy with it. Every fall I seem to get really inspired by the 20’s and 30’s. Living in a rainforest, literally, I wear lots of hats in the fall/winter. I guess this is why I crave these fashion… Continue¬†reading | 6 Comments
