Hell-to-the-Yah! #1: Uppity Fluidline from the MAC Antiquitease Limited Edition Collection
Everyone and their mamma is buzzing about the Antiquitease release, and for good reason. Itâ€™s sparkly. Itâ€™s pretty. And it reminds me of the Solid Gold Dancers.
Even though Iâ€™ve been hopelessly devoted to Blacktrack for the last three months, I find myself jonsing for the gold colored Fluidline, Uppity (yellow gold with gold pearl). Why do I need gold eyeliner? Where will I wear gold eyeliner? These questions are irrelevant. I canâ€™t wait to dip my 209 into this. I think that it just might be better than eating a dozen hot, fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Maybe.
Hell-to-Yah! #2: Mission: KIMMORA LEE SIMMONS
I see dead people â€¦ okay not really. I see fried chicken. And Kimora Lee Simmons.
The other night I got about 2.5 seconds of sleep because I had a burst of creative energy between 11:00 and 3:00 am. I usually have fleeting creative moments in the shower or when Iâ€™m brushing my teeth (weird, I know), so when it comes on full blast I cannot deny its siren call.
At 2:15, just as I was in the middle of brainstorming story ideas, I hallucinated a plate of Kentucky Fried Chicken, complete the with biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy and that weird but tasty sweet corn. Then I had a very clear, very precise revelation:
Someday, somehow I am going to meet KIMORA LEE SIMMONS. And Iâ€™m going to interview her.
Iâ€™ve caught a few episodes of her show, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane this past week and for some reason I just think sheâ€™s kinda cool.
Sure she makes unrealistic demands on her people and seems to always be on the verge of bitching someone out. But I see her as having vision and not settling for less. And have you seen her closet? Iâ€™d consider giving up my firstborn up for the shoes and Louis Vuitton luggage alone.
I don’t know when it’s going to happen or how I’m going to do it but this is now one of my missions in life.
Kimora, watch out, girl! One of these days we’ll be talkin’ shop!
Hell-to-the-Yah! #3: Brown Round Toe Boots by Rebels
After searching high and low, I finally found a pair of boots that truly move my soul. I saw these brown Rebel boots on Zappos and I knew from the first glance that they were the boots for me…sigh! Whether or not they are practical in the rain remains to be determined. But who cares, they’re hot. I love you Zappos!
Hell-to-the-Yah #4: Halloween!
Out of the fall holiday trifecta (Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas) my favorite of the bunch is Halloween. Itâ€™s fun, non-denominational and of course, there is the gorging of the candy. Mmmm, Snickers.
This year Iâ€™m going to dress up as the hot mess chanteuse known as Amy Winehouse. Iâ€™ve got the beehive hair and cat eye covered but the tattoos, wellâ€¦thatâ€™s an issue where Iâ€™m still working out. Hopefully Iâ€™ll find a bunch of cool temporary ones at the Halloween store this weekend.
Are you dressing up this year? Whatâ€™s your costume?
Hell-to-the-Yah #5: Feeding My Inner Beast Oâ€™ Laziness … with Anti-bacterial Wet Ones
The fab makeup artist to the stars and Billy B. gave me my newest favorite makeup tip. When heâ€™s working on several clients heâ€™ll wipe his brushes between gigs with Anti-Bacterial Wet Ones wipes, which clean and disinfect brushes quickly and thoroughly and donâ€™t leave a weird film on the brush heads.
And holy effing crap! These wipes are like gold for cleaning your brushes. If you donâ€™t always have the time to do a thorough brush cleaning at the sink (or if youâ€™ve got lazy beast tendencies like your truly) then these will save you from a life of dirty birdy brushes.
Woo hoo! We made it! Sometimes I think that we should all get an award for just making it to Friday without losing our minds. Now if only that reward involved copious amounts of Chanel …
Have a fantastic weekend! Drive safe in this rain, okay?
