I hate that I let you down



I hate that I let you down - Jessie J

Letting someone down is one of the worst things you can do, well, it's one of the worst things I hate to do. I've been so busy the past couple of weeks, I've stopped taking photos, stopped creating makeup looks, and really everything piled on top of me. The past weeks have taught me one thing though, you always have enough time for everything. There are ways of managing your time, moving things around, and being able to do the things that really matter. If you stuck in a 9 to 5 job, it's never too late to get out of the same routine. Take up painting, read a book, apply for a newer job that has promising opportunity's, the possibilities are endless, you can put your mind to whatever you want. It was only yesterday when I was talking to my housemate about how much i miss painting, and in particular life drawing. I've gone from drawing the human form, to taking pictures of it, to creating makeup looks to apply on top! It seems like I'm in a cycle down, looking back at the start and forward. When you get to that point, where you start to realised you can create this whole cycle, you know your on to a winner. If you don't know what I mean, it's like this. I can draw a person, and also take photos of one with makeup looks. Now i can use both these skills and mix them together to create a really mixed media outcome. I guess that's why I keep blogging three photos with overlays.

I've let this blog down by having a three week break, but to quote Lady Gaga, in any sentence, It's been a long time, but i'm back it town.

I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain




I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain - Prince

Today is spirit day, a day that the LGBT community get together, wear purple, and celebrate who you are! It started in America, but who said we all can't join in? Today I'm wearing JoMina, an electric lilac colour by Illamasqua. Their nail varnishes are amazing and won the cosmo beauty award in 2010, so you don't have to take my word for it! Since it is spirit day i added a touch of glitter just using Number 17 glitter top coat for an extra touch! This glitter top coat is a must have! It's the perfect price, and I can put on layers and layers without feeling guilty that I've just increased the value of my nails from how much I've applied!!

To see Illamasquas nail varnish selection, or even their makeup you can find it all though this link here:
