You’ve probably already watched this video, but if you haven’t I would encourage you to take a peek. Em Ford is a YouTube personality who specializes in her makeup tutorials. When I came across this video months ago, I was moved and disheartened by the kinds of things that strangers say to one another. She has brought to light the kinds of hurtful comments that she comes across on a daily basis and I think the video is a great way to show people that beauty comes from the inside but if you choose to wear makeup it is a way to express yourself! Makeup is a lot of fun and while I don’t experiment too much with my makeup, I have recently gotten into watching these tutorials and learning more about the exciting ways to update my look!
(My mom got me this eyeshadow kit for Christmas and I have been learning more about how to use all of these colors with my green eyes. Now that I know a bit more about the smokey eye, I am LOVING this palette. Isn’t the packaging amazing?)
(While I was watching tutorials, I came across this video that creates a cat eye look with dots of various summer colors. This is the kind of stuff I would never think to do on my own but it is so creative!)
Do you experiment with your makeup? If so, what inspires you?

You’re dragging your feet, whimpering quietly to yourself, and wondering “Why God? Why me?!” You know what we’re talking about, it’s Monday. The fun is over and it is time to get back in the office and spend your day taking orders from The Man. But then sometimes there is a little light peeking over that rock you have been working behind; we like to call that light “happy accidents”.
1. Unidentifiable Smells
Yup, you read that right. An unidentifiable smell equals the potential to be sent home from work early. Let’s face it, 99% of the time it was just some poor sap who shouldn’t have had beans the night before.
2. Awesome Bands
While we are choosing not to disclose where we work, we must say that sometimes lunch means free pizza and the band Fun. That. Does. Not. Suck.
3. Amateur P.I. Sites
You know the days when there is not much going on and you decide to check your personal “Amateur P.I. For Hire” site’s email? Yeah, we thought so. Well, turns out someone needs your service- there has been an unidentifiable smell found in the second floor of your work, better go find out who just ate beans. This brings us to a future post called “We Investigate”, stayed tuned for that gem.
4. YouTube Stardom
Guess what?! That weirdo video you posted of you and your bestie in your pajamas singing about choochoo trains just got 5 hits! That was 4 more since you told your mom you posted it that day, she must have told her neighbors! 5 hits, I think that’s considered viral! You’re going to need to get ready for the fans, paparazzi, and lack of privacy, you know, all the things that go with super stardom.
5. Sweet Surprises
Remember that diet you were going to start today? Well forget about it because a box of cupcakes were delivered to your work at 9 in the morning because some random-person-you-have-never-once-spoken-to is having a birthday! Where’s my confetti gun? It’s time to party!
