 Cami & Plaid Shirt (JCPenney)+White Eyelet Skirt (Rue21)+Black Cropped Tights (Target)=Workie Workie

I don't have a picture, but guess what I bought today? A new Pandora bead. I'm pretty sure I should rename my blog to something like "The Diary of a Pandora Hoarder". It'd be real big. I can see it all now. Shiny bracelets, fancy beads. Mmm. But it's another murano, and it's totally the Gryffindor colors. And that is why I bought it. I'll for sure take a picture for ya'll. 
I worked today, and it was super duper boring. Hence the me playing in Pandora and ending up buying something. That's why my outfit is a bit disheveled, cause I took the picture at the end of the day. By the way, how do you like that pertty little zit on the side of my nose. It's a stupid reoccurring zit. I don't know how it happens, seeing as I wash my face at least twice a day. As soon as it's gone I rejoice and about a week later I hear a little voice go "I'm baaaaaaack". And then I scream. Not really, I just cry a little. Zits drive me crazy. I know, it's soooo teenager, but heck I figure I might as well get my crazy teenage angst out while I can. 
One more semi-important thing for you all. A question actually.
I suck at makeup, I'm getting a wee bit better about eyeliner, mascara, etc., but the whole foundation thing I just can't figure out. I feel like it looks like my face is painted on, and I don't even use that much! I just want to look a wee bit more natural, but still be able to cover up my little occasional zits. What would you all recommend? Right now I'm using Neutrogena liquid foundation.


  1. First: cute outfit. You're adorable in plaid, and the eyelet skirt is perfect for summer! Second, your foundation looks good- it's a great match color-wise with your skin. But if you're looking for a more breathable product, I love Clinique's Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer- it's lightweight with SPF 15, and it doesn't feel cakey or heavy. If you don't want to pay $$ without trying it first, go to the Clinique counter at Macy's and they'll do your makeup for you! It's fun. They also will give you a sample of the product for free - and said sample lasts FOREVER.
    Also (I know, this is a long comment, delete it if you wish!), depending on how you're applying your foundation, that could make it be pretty heavy, too. What works best for me is to use a brush like this; put the liquid foundation on the back of your hand, then apply it to your face a little at a time. This gives you a more even coverage, and you're not applying more than you need.
    Hope I helped!

    Oh goodness! This sounds like a butt load of work... maybe I'll just stick with not wearing makeup. It's easier. =P

  3. I like just using mineral powder... I found this great company called Everyday Minerals (they are online only, I think..) that sells mineral foundations that don't cost an arm and a leg. I think they look good, and I know they are good for your skin!
