18 Ugly Truths About Modern Dating That You Have To Deal With


So true! I’ve fallen victim to number 1 many times.

1. The person who cares less has all the power. Nobody wants to be the one who’s more interested.

2. Because we want to show how cavalier and blasé we can be to the other person, little psychological games like ‘Intentionally Take Hours Or Days To Text Back’ will happen. They aren’t fun.

3. A person being carefree because they have zero interest in you looks exactly like a person being carefree because they think you’re amazing & are making a conscious effort to play it cool. Good luck deciphering between the two.

4. Making phone calls is a dying art. Chances are, most of your relationship’s communication will happen via text, which is the most detached, impersonal form of interaction. Get familiar with those emoticon options.

5. Set plans are dead. People have options and up-to-the-minute updates on their friends (or other…

New hair and Ombre Eyes

So I got my hair cut and I hate it, the sad part is it’s my fault.  Usually I like to go into the hair dressers with a photo because I really can’t explain things very well… and the tragedy is my bangs were murdered.


So to try and make myself feel better I tried out an Ombre eye look using my Avon Mega Palette I used a light yellowish color on the inter corners of my eyes, a light lime green on the middle and a greenish blue on the outer corners.  I also brought the blue around to line my eyes.  I like how it looks, I just wish I could have gotten a better picture.  Sadly I don’t like taking direct photos of my eyes, they’re sadly always bloodshot :(.


Eyes: Avon Mega Palate

Lips: Smashbox in Starlit

Foundation: Clinique Even Better MakeUp

Blush: Avon Mega Palate


Necklace: Avon

Free Gift with Purchase

So the other day I went shopping for a new foundation (with a gift card earned from MyPoints).  I was really hoping to be matched up with a nice light weight foundation from Estee Lauder and I ended up with Double Wear Light which seems good enough to me.  Sadly after leaving the store I realized that I would just end up buying another foundation in a few months when I end up getting tan from summer, so perhaps I’ll go with my favorite from Hard Candy for a whopping $8.


In these photos I am wearing:

TokiDoki Eyeshadow in SAMBA (icy gray pearl) and CHOCO (bronze suntan pearl) (The set I personally own I stumbled across on Amazon)

Wet N Wild Eye Liner in Dark Brown.

Mascara: Benifet They’re Real!

Foundation: Clinique Even better Make Up

Lipstick: Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Sugar Honey

On my little shopping trip I also happen to pick up a Pure Color Sheer Roller Gloss in Succulent $18.50.  I love this gloss, especially over top of my Bronze Goddess Lip color, it makes the coral so vivid.


With every purchase from Estee Lauder totaling $35 or more you receive a gift (and as you probably know it’s all too easy to get over $35).  And this months was pretty nice, there are two choices, “Daywear” or “Resilience.”

This description was taken from Bon-Ton.com but you can also see it in any Bon-Ton store with a makeup counter.

RESILIENCE Your gift will include:
  • • Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face & Neck Crème SPF 15
  • • Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex
  • • Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser (deluxe travel size)
  • • Pure Color Eye Shadow Quad: Duo in Clouds, Ivory Slipper and Wild Sable
  • • Pure Color Lipstick in Sugar Honey
  • • Estèe Lauder pleasures Eau de Parfum Spray
  • • Exclusive cosmetic bag featuring an original Lily Pulitzer print


DAYWEAR Your gift will include:
  • • DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Crème SPF 15
  • • Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex
  • • Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser (deluxe travel size)
  • • Pure Color Eye Shadow Quad: Duo in Clouds, Ivory Slipper and Wild Sable
  • • Pure Color Lipstick in Sugar Honey
  • • Estèe Lauder pleasures Eau de Parfum Spray
  • • Exclusive cosmetic bag featuring an original Lily Pulitzer print

So the only difference in these sets are the creams, I was given Daywear because, well I just didn’t need the other.

Here’s a launch anyone who is addicted to reading horoscopes will love (cough, cough, us!): Charlotte Olympia just launched a new collection of 12 shoes and 12 clutches, one to represent each astrological sign. “As with most of my collections, the zodiac is a topic that could easily adapt to a large dose of novelty and fun whilst still being quite classic,” the clever and witty British designer told InStyle (she is a true Gemini, after all!). Click through the gallery to see how the designer represented your sign, and shop the collection—$695 for shoes and $995 for clutches—on net-a-porter.com or call the Charlotte Olympia store (212-744-1842) to place an order.

Red Lips and LLBD

Little Little Black Dress and I know I’ll never have the nerve to wear out in public without a pair of jeans, but I love it all the same.  I thought I was going to be heading to Burlington to visit some family today, but sadly mother nature isn’t on my side and has brought freezing rain to the North Country.  I know I shouldn’t be shocked, it’s not like New England and the surrounding states are known for rational weather.
