This Tuesday we get a double edition of treasuries! Warm Gradient The warm tones of this collection make me itch for summer, despite the fact that some of them are not very "summery" in a sense. This was a fun one to put together, to show a gradient from a deep red of the Cardinal … Continue reading Treasury Tuesday: Gradients
Who's awesome? I'm awesome! Not to toot my own horn, but I've been doing really well with eating right and going to the gym the past week or so.

Every once in a while, I wonder how that conversation would go. I often imagine … Continue reading So here we are, Twenty-Five
Saving your blush or compact make-up Ok, is this not the worst thing to see when you open your bag? I was utterly depressed when I realized I had left my make-up bag in my gym bag and thus destroyed my compact blush. This isn't necessarily life shattering, after all the blush is only like … Continue reading DIY: Saving your blush or powder make-up
Something I've learned while running an Etsy store is that your pictures tell the story. Your pictures need to accurately show the true nature of the items you sell. Mine? Were really not cutting it.
