I feel like my retinas are burning off of my face from all of the time I've spent staring into my computer screen lately. I have been working nonstop, hence the abysmal infrequency of updates.
The winner of the Glamour Kills giveaway is the lovely Cass! Cass, FYI, I am a really slow shipper. I know, I know, and I apologize in advance. I will ship it next week!
Today is the day in which I address questions posed in emails and comments.
1. The new shoes and things
You may have noticed lately that I'm wearing a lot of things from wholesale-dress.net. It's like a bizarre wholesale website that also sells some things at retail to the public, and they have hundreds of thousands of items, and (as people who know me IRL can attest) I have a sick addiction to it. I made it into a verb. For example:
"Hey Madeline, wanna hang out tonight?"
"Nah man, can't. I'm wholesale-dress.netting."
And then I just go through like tens of thousands of strange products for hours on end, looking for the one cool item in true OCD neurotic fashion. Anyway, I ordered like a buh-jillion things and that's why I'm wearing 'em all lately; fair warning: it is really hard to find cool things, and it's super-overwhelming, but it's mega affordable due to currency conversion rates. That's my two-cents, since I know some people have been emailing me about it.
Another thing about which I have been receiving emails/comments is my tattoos. I hate most of my tattoos, so I actually try not to take pictures of them. Gosh, am I just the biggest let-down or what?
3. Kevyn Aucoin Makeup
I had some questions about the Kevyn Aucoin foundation/concealer/magic tub that I mentioned in my makeup article on Swide (plug: check out my other article here and Taylor's articles here and here). I swear by this stuff. I wear SX 01 because I am the color of copy paper. In the summer, I get a bit darker, so I just dust with a darker shade of powder and it balances out fine. One little tub will last you about a year and a half, so it's a great investment.
That taken care of, I will leave you with two random thoughts of the day:
1. I don't usually go gaga over models, but this lady that was just featured in the new UO catalog is pretty rad-looking.
2. I've got another blog crush: Wolf & Willow.
