Obsessing over cutouts right now. Searching the ebay vintage section for summer stuff today (swimsuits, slip dresses, cotton shorts) I came across this swimsuit:

amazing. possibly the perfect combination of sexiness and vintage appeal. I can't seem to ever really pull off a vintage piece unless there is something modern about it. Too bad it has a $250 price tag. So sad.

I've been meaning to do a couple cutout projects, having seen cutout tees, tanks, and blazers and the Chloe cutout dress I've posted about before, I know there must be a perfect cutout shape out there for me. I'm really starting to think it is this triangle showcasing the--what is that--your ribcage? would be good for me. haha... its about the only part I would really feel comfortable showing I think. Although, I'm open to others...

No Dout 2009 Tour

No Doubt is going on TOUR!!!! Can't, can't wait. Probablly the number one band I need desperately to see live. I was worried I would never get the chance!

I have always loved them. I was in the 5th grade when their first album came out.

Gwen's style and her spunk, and the boys she loves-they all kick ass! Not to mention that her lyrics have always struck a chord with me.
Sophie Muller (she has my last name!) has directed alot of No Doubts videos and I love every one of those as well. Gwen's riding around on a jet ski with the guys or looking gorgeous with barely any makeup on (in Underneath it All), my favorite one being Cool though, where she is running around Italy as a younger Gwen in sweet dresses and polka dotted maillots. I'm a fan forever. I'm so pumped.

Its been a long time coming

Oh, boy. Its funny what life can shove you into, head first! I feel different lately, a little more confident and strong even though things just seem to keep piling on. I don't care though, I'm just like brrrrring it on!

I'm so ready for spring.

Loving the cutouts at the Chloe Spring 2009 show!

Recession? Psssh. Whatever! I can be cheap and still look hot.

A round up of cheap, if somewhat unsual beauty products and how to use them to your best advantage.

my current list of multitasking products:

-Watkins' lavender skin oil
I use this as a moisturizer, it makes makeup go on so much smoother. I also put a drop in my hair to make it shiny and hold curl better.

-Smiths rosebud salve
the (obvious) but greatest: works for everything.

gets rid of redness in skin. good for your eyeballs too, pothead.

-cherry jello mix
mix a little powder mix with water and apply with a brush as a lipstain + bonus! it tastes good. : )

-old darker shade of powder from the summer months
use as a blush/bronzer and you already had it just sitting there!

I have dirty blond hair and use this to darken my eyebrows after I do my lashes. Use whatevers left on the wand and lightly brush through your brows, then go back with a brow brush if you like.

A few that are expensive but worth it in my opinion:

-garnier fructis regenerating lotion / morning and night
-tressame conditioner / good for fine hair (use before you shampoo)
-clinique color surge eyeshadows / perfect shimmer w/out blinding yourself looking in the mirror
-almay long wear liquid eyeliner / just enough stay put vs. smudgeability

Anyone have a strange product or new use for and old one?

Yes I did: diy harness/body chain

Heres me copycatting again. As far as diy projects go, this might be the easiest, and best results I've ever gotten. I will definately try this again. The great thing about body chains is that there are so many different kinds out there. Making it myself allowed me to fit it specifically for my body.

For this I started with two 6 foot lengths of small chain, and one length of a size larger. I used small eyelets (which are just metal loops that you bend open) to connect the chains at front and back. I dug through my odds and ends and picked out a three cornered (fake) diamond cluster which I put in front to hang chain from and I put a tiny metal key in the back. Thats it! I just kept trying it on and changing things and messing with it until I was satisfied.

Wore it out for the first time last night. Kinda broke it. Might need some adjusting... I tend to be a little rough on things. Haha!
