Sugar & Frost

Ok, so like. It’s 12:55AM and I’m currently in bed (because where else would I be?) with a head wrap on. I’m also wearing a wrist splint because I have a pinched nerve and it’s so fucking hideous. Anyway, I don’t know if anyone else remembers the major bullshit I use to complain about but, aside from the snowstorm, I have been really busy with work. That’s it. I also moved to a new location in Brooklyn. It’s really pretty but, in my mind, it’s temporary because my plan is to have a flat in the city with my loved one! Like, I envision having a spacious place to call h o m e really soon. I have 10 more months of being single as I’ve vowed to myself and I’m anticipating the path I’m on  even though people try to sleep on how well I acclimate. I stay about me and my business so that I’m bettering myself for everything to come. In a strange way, my blog and my creative productivity is my armor because it keeps me out of trouble. Plus, I know I have readers from all over the world (as I post on my Twitter) and that makes me happy, too!

 I know I did a YouTube video on some of the new products I’m using but it’s nothing like really breaking it all down. When I have time, I’ll do a full regime but day-to-day, I use cleansing wipes, toner and face masks because they’re quick and effective. In the morning, before I do my makeup, I’ll use a face mask. Sometimes I even mix my favorite moisturizer, oils or serums with my foundation and concealer so that I know I’m working skincare into my beauty looks. A girl asked me what I use on my face and I told her that I use lipgloss because I do. I love the natural sheeny highlight of a gloss whereas using a powder can sometimes look ashy and fake. I found these lip oils at one of my favorite beauty stores in the city and I use it everywhere... I love the coconut flavor!

 I really do have fun on the job. I live in the moment, dressing up and trying new styles. It’s fun to learn about designers I never thought to take interest in until I started working with dresses. And no, all the mirrors don’t make me any crazier than I already am.
