Sick girl naaah nah nah naaaaaah sick girl

So!

After my wisdom teeth got removed, I came down with an epic flu. Some may say it was the flu of all flus. It was an absolute nightmare.
Immediately following the flu, I got a sinus infection. I have taken so many medicines in the past month, that I better not get sick ever ever ever again. I was out of work for a week. Sounds nice and all, but you wanna know what the worst part is?
I couldn’t do ANYTHING.
No sewing.
No knitting.
No Painting.
No cooking.
I’m pretty sure TV and the internet fried my brain. I got to watch a lot of old shows, thanks to the antenna that my roommates boyfriend got us. my favorite hours were I Dream of Jeanne from 2-3, and Bewitched from 3-4.

This past months creativity suffered not from lack of inspiration, no, no, I had plenty of that, but instead from lack of energy. I have a million ideas I’ve put on paper, that I am just itching to execute.
Now that I am well, the WP Art Festival is over, and I have hired on a pretty great staff, I can finally incorporate some home crafting back into my life.

To keep my spirits up, and to not feel like I was a boring mass of normal person, I did find one way to be creative.
Lipstick.

I have been a lipstick addict since high school. I have always loved it, it makes me feel beautiful. Now that there are SO MANY PEOPLE who feel this way, there are crazy amounts of options out there for me to collect. My personal favorite lipstick finish is and always will be matte.

However, sometimes I like to play with shiny ones.

subtle red and pink ombré

SO MUCH FUN.

Everything I use is NYX Cosmetics. I absolutely love their stuff. Beautiful, affordable, diverse.
As subtle as it was, I think the red and pink ombré was my favorite of last week.
I will wear pretty much any color, with the exception of coral and stripper pink, but I always feel the best in reds. Who doesn’t?
ALL HAIL RED LIPSTICK.

Halloween! [insert music notes here]

Halloween was so much fun! It is not only my favorite holiday, but it is the kick off to my favorite time of the year. ALL OF THE HOLIDAYS. And here in Florida – I can’t believe I’m about to say this – it got COLD. Like, I got to wear a cute sweatshirt cold. Anyway……Halloween!

I had my staff dress up for work of course, because if being the boss doesn’t lend itself to have your entire staff dress up, then I want no part of it.

Pre-Halloween Party

Went to a house warming costume party last night, that I may or may not have forgotten about until about an hour or so before. My roommate and I threw together some quick costumes with some really crappy face paint from Target. End result? Kind of awesome. This is the first costume I’ve worn since I was about 6 that didn’t have blood involved.

 Halloween is the one time of year you get to spatter yourself in fake blood and wear ridiculous things, and I always intend to do just that.

For being last minute, I think it came out pretty well. I know you can’t really tell here, but my eyebrows were incredible. I’m absolutely in LOVE with NYX’s Eyebrow Gel in espresso. I’m pretty sure the lipstick is theirs, too. Yep, just checked, it’s their Matte Pure Red lipstick. MATTE ALL THE THINGS.
