Late St. Patrick's Day

Hey!! I know, late again. But with good reason. My mom ended up getting out of the hospital, things were good, and then they weren't and she went back to the hospital. She just got out yesterday. I hope it will have been the last time that she had to go back in, but I guess we'll see. I also have been battling being sick and it just got worse. No fun at all. This is also midterms week, but fortunately, two of my midterms have been pushed back to after spring break!
I did this look for St. Patrick's day and the day after. My boyfriend, who is Irish, was out of town for hockey and couldn't be with the me or the family on his day! So, we spent Sunday celebrating the day again since he was back home the day after. It took me sooo long to decide what pictures I would put up. It ultimately came down to the fact that they all looked the same, I was just so in love with this look that I love each and every picture. On top of that, this look might have changed my mind regarding Sugarpill's Tipsy.. I think I like it.. a lot.. Also, I did my nails! It's Sinful Colors... I don't remember the name of it right now, but I know it was one of the colors I got during Halloween when it was on display. I also used this green glitter from LA Splash cosmetics. I love how it turned out. Just ignore the nail polish from another time underneath some nails.. I was running out of time after my makeup, so I didn't grab the nail polish remover to get the remnants off. Oh, well. I'll try to be back with another look soon! It all kind of depends on how fast I can get over this stupid sickness. :( Have a great day, everybody!

Arabic Eyes

FINALLY!!! After a week I was able to make a blog post! My mom had gotten out of the hospital for a couple days and then ended up going right back in. Then I got sick. So, one of the days I was sick I figured I would make the blog post then. No such luck. It turned out that the pictures I had taken on the camera I took without the memory card in. So, all of my pictures were on the internal memory and there's no way to switch it over and I didn't have the cord! I ordered it from Amazon and it came in just the other day. So, sorry for the wait. Thank you all for your support, though! I really appreciate it. :)
On to the look! My inspiration was from the lovely Phlox of EyeGraffiti! I admit, I splurged on Sugarpill's birthday and bought all of the Chromalusts I didn't own, aside from Tipsy. That color looks too much like Midori for me to really want to get it. Anyways, since I am now stocked up on Sugarpill, I HAD to try out one of the looks from their blog. They use Sugarpill a lot, so I couldn't wait to get started! I chose Phlox's Arabic Eyes because I REALLY wanted to use Goldilux. Also, I wanted to attempt a cut crease again and I think I've got it figured out! One thing I do want to say about my look though is it turned out more pink than purple and I also don't have awesome rhinestones to play with or seriously awesome glitter. Sigh. One day.
Thank you guys for waiting! I hope to be back to being more frequent soon! :)
