Finally My shop is open. ! Take a look
Unless I am planning to put my raccoon costume on for a Halloween party, there is no other way for me to try to get the smokey eyes look. I feel overwhelmed and different when I wear smokey eyes, and I think it is because I don’t usually wear too much make up in the daily basis.
It will take some time and many tries to get used to it.
I know smokey eyes is a very dramatic look that I have not learned yet, but the thing is I want to get that dramatic vibe without getting a “punch in the eye” result.
So this is last thing I have failed in beauty. I hope you enjoy reading all of them.Thanks again for your support. Have a very nice Friday, and be getting ready for the weekend
All the illustrations have been done by me, so if you plan to copy them at least give me the credit for it :).
Some of you probably have noticed that I have wavy hair. My “very pretty” curls have had many complements, some people said:”I wish I had your curls” or “ How do you make them? Well, the truth is I do not have any control over my hair, it is a totally independent part of my body that refuses to take any of my orders.That’s why I say: They are not that pretty if you get to know them!
When I feel strong enough to change this situation I take my flat iron -as an act of revenge- and I iron those “pretty curls” for 45 minutes. Yes, it takes 45 minutes for me to get done with my revenge because I am a novice with my flat iron. After that disturbing situation, it does not get any better because my hair decides to counterattack acting rigid. Once again… I lose my wishes of a graceful and lightweight look.
So don’t forget this even if you have uncontrollable curls :“Embrace all your features after all is what makes you unique”
Hope you enjoy today’s post, and thanks for reading. Tomorrow I will post the last of ”5 things” so be ready.
3. Eye liner
Since I saw Adele for the first time on a magazine, I fell in love with her clean and well done eye make up. Since then-about 2 years ago- I have tried to use eye liner just twice.
I am terrified of using black in my eyes because I get really messy with it, so If I do use I have to make sure I have bought enough make up cleanser, like a gallon.
Also I consider I have mastered the ”Abstract eye liner” I called like that to my very ”different and irregular ” lines.They are meant to be this way, because I am totally into being different.So if you want a tutorial of how to get the ”abstract eye liner” send me a comment :). hahaha
Thanks so much for reading and for your support. Have a good evening, and smile because is fall
2. Hair Bun
I consider the hair bun as practical, quick and elegant hairstyle, however it has not been practical, quick or elegant in my case. First of all I can’t get all my hair in those donuts, second if I do half of my hair is out in a blink.
I have seen videos of how to get that dreamy ballerina look, and this is how they do it, first they straight the hair, then they use styling cream, and finally bobby pins. Believe me after all that work, the hair bun is just one complicated hair style for me.
So I choose to go for what is call “messy bun”. Sometimes I go too messy that I am afraid a bird is going to nest on my bun.
Anyway I will keep trying and looking for more options and tips, I will keep you update.
I was just walking in the backyard looking for a little bit of inspiration. The result? this lovely picture of the different kinds of leaves I found. I hope this picture also cheer you up ! Have a good day.
”I wish I’d had the courage to live life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”.That’s the number one regret of the dying . I heard it in one of the TED conferences.Every day I see more and more people living up to vain things. I think they don’t realize it because they have been so busy. Perhaps they will wake up, and let’s hope it won’t be too late.
Many times you hear the question ¿What do you want to be when you grow up? And you will hear answers like astronaut, doctor, pilot and actress, and so on. Always dreamy answers, coincidentally also the most well-paid jobs. I have gotten the same answers over and over, but I have never heard somebody say ” I want to be stressed out working in a job that I’m not going to enjoy, so I can afford everything I am planning to have”. That right there is what most of the people have become nowadays. How curious that at early stages in life, children seem to respond well to their parents’ and our society’s expectations. As they grow up many shape up their goals and purposes in life based in what they have been told is better to do, because nobody wants a failure kid, everyone wants the winner, the successful, the rich.
So there you are a high school graduate. Sure, your safe years are now over! Now get your ” things to accomplish in life” checklist. Get into college to get whatever degree is well-paid or at least any degree; everyone has one, and so you do. Remember that’s what everyone wants from you.If you plan to go to college to meet someone to get married, and you do, congratulations, you moved to your next level: getting married.
After blinking a couple times more you will find yourself married, hopefully to a rich person, planning to have kids, to show how solid and serious your marriage is, and of course to give your parents those little grandchildren they have always wanted. Meanwhile you will be struggling with your good job. Stress and anxiety will be common, so just keep a pack of Prozac. Remember you are not here to disappoint, so never quit it,m and plan that retirement as soon as you can because that is why everyone works for, besides the best car, best house, and best college for their kids.
Now you are in the cusp of your life, keep with the routine for many years.Don’t worry about middle age crisis, everyone has one.Everyone who never did what they really wanted to do, but not you.
Blink again! There you are. Fast wasn’t it? Life goes so fast that, if you blink again, you might be dead and who knows where. So you are alone and about to die, and you never thought this would happen to you. You thought the routine was going to be forever and dead would happen in a far, far future.Well, dead has been beside you since you were conceived.
Your time is going to be over. You were feel it closer, you realize there is not a way to go back in time.The rushing in life has helped you to forget what you were here for, and what would have happened if you had made to do something different choices. Then is when it pops into your head that you really wanted to do something different, something that you were passionate about, something with meaning, something with deep value, besides monetary.The truth of living comes when your life is finished.What and irony!
Now your desired come to life while your daydream. You picture yourself as an adventurous and fearless person, capable of everything.Nobody is going to stop you now.You know what you want and you are going for it.You feel free for the first time. You are free because you know there is nothing to lose when you are daydreaming until you die.
Wake up now!
Be yourself and be free. Step aside from the crowd that walks the same direction.Love your uniqueness, your flaws, and your strengths.Be sure not to fall in a routine.Do what you love and be happy. Don’t let time catch you and death attack you.Remember that the only thing you know for sure is that you are going to die, and you can’t be disappointed with yourself when your time arrives.
This is a essay I wrote for class last week, and one of the reasons why I haven’t finish posting ”5 beauty things I have failed” Don’t you worry this week day by day I will post them all. I wanted to shared on my blog because it is about a topic that some time during our lives we think about.
The other reason why I have been written lately is because I was moving. Soon, I will post pictures of my new home in the gorgeous state of Rhode Island.
Today I sat down to work on some things for my new line of clothing for little girls that is coming out soon. For now take a look of one of those things … my business card.
A few days ago I went to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.Since then, I haven’t stopped thinking about learning how to . I have tried a few times… with some good and some terrible endings. I will post just the good endings.
I have found oil painting more time consuming; also, I feel that it takes more dedication and patience which is hard because I don’t have the bestand I get distracted pretty easily. I have painted with watercolors, acrylics, and pastels before and these mediums have been -some how- easy to work with.
I will probably get lessons… on youtube maybe hahaha. I will know after my next oil painting project ”the tangerines”
I did not post my oil paintings, those are the one that had terrible endings.
pastels on paper
acrylic on canvas
It has been a while since I updated my blog. Well a lot of things have happened.The good thing is that everything has been for the good, and I am very happy.
Soon I will be finished with my English classes and ready to step into college . I can’t wait to start to learn to make new things.
Also we (me, my husband, a dog and 3 cats )are going to move again. It is going to be exciting and challenging at the same time but worth it.
There is something that I have been working on and I hope not to fail or lose my motivation. I have started to sew little girl’s dresses and to paint. My goal is to share what I do and become more skilled. I am not very good at talking about me, so this is going to be the opportunity to open myself up and let things happen.
Constantly, almost daily I get bored of seeing women wearing “workout clothes ” .Sometimes I actually think they haven’t been working out. It is just sad to see them day by day dressing that way just because they think, It is comfy. Let me tell you that’s not being comfy, that is being lazy.
What if you actually work out ? well, then carry a little something to change after it. If you worry about your fitness also be concern about how you look during and after exercising. Don’t say all day in those clothes.
Also I have seen some women carrying a designer’s bag as part of their outfit. It does not matter how much your bag cost. I won’t fix they way your are dressed, it won’t make you look elegant or it won’t make you look like a celebrity. It makes you a victim of marketing.
If you love the idea of this clothes fitting your body the way non other clothes do, set them aside and start to look for your right size.
They way you introduce yourself to the world every day reflects how you feel and how much you love yourself.
Happy new year everyone! I wish you a blessed year full of happiness and love.
As you all know my family is very crafty so my mom, my granny and I decided to open a Etsy store.We all 3 are working very hard in this project. We have high hopes. We plan to add some clothing for girls soon so stay connected. We are excited and open to all kinds of questions and suggestions. Thank you so much for all your support.
This is a sneak peak of the shoot session I arranged in the afternoon.I took the pics by myself, it was a little bit tricky because the lighting was good just for an hour. Some of the pictures are not published in the Esty shop.
this is my store http://www.etsy.com/shop/Moodyfashion?ref=si_shop
