What I Wore: 9.11.11

My Nikon camera is still broken, so I used my iPhone 4 to take a few pictures of my outfit. I know it's a little cheesy to post phone photos, but I just bought this purple & pink floral strapless sundress and I've been dying to wear it out.
My friends invited my sister & I over to watch True Blood. We ordered pizza and munched on homemade rice crispy treats. The rice crispy treats were cut into the shape of little guitars, which I thought was über adorable. I wanted to snap a picture but they were gobbled up in a flash!

Makeup!!
I receive a great deal of emails and comments about my makeup. I absolutely adore makeup and it's something I always have a lot of fun with. While I'm not a makeup guru, I'm definitely interested in makeup technique and the best brands out there.

A few year ago, I took a stage makeup class and fell in love with the idea of makeup application as an art form. Now I soak up every little bit of knowledge from my makeup guru friend, Trina, and obsessively watch makeup tutorials on youtube. 

I'm very obsessive about the way I organize my makeup. I recently bought a pink makeup artist case for my makeup, which is pictured above. It was such an amazing purchase, too. I've already lugged it with me on several trips since I purchased it.

HAIR!!
I wrap small sections of hair around a 1" curling iron. Once all of my hair is curled, I spray it with some lightweight hairspray and gently scrunch the curls with my hands. I tease two small sections towards the crown of my head and brush them back. I finish with a shine spray. Easy peasy! I always wear my hair down like this because it's ultra thick and always gives me a headache whenever I pin it up.

Yuck! The quality of this picture is atrocious, but it was the only picture I snapped of my dress. I know it's already mid-September, but it's still mega-hot in Texas. We're still sporting our sundresses & flip-flops. I'm just dying for some cold weather!

I'm wearing:
★  Floral Strapless Sundress from Forever 21
★  Purple Cardigan from Old Navy
★  Stripped Sandals (not pictured)
