Stay Tuned - Lots of blogging next week

I am heading off to San Francisco for the Bare Escentuals Girls Getaway Weekend with Leslie.  This is my first Bare Escentuals event as well as my first time in San Francisco.  I also have only flown once before and that was when I was 14.  I've worn BE for almost 9 years now and finally I am going to an event.  This is the first time I could get it to work with my schedule and that I could actually afford it. Needless to say, I am extremely excited.  Did I also mention that my birthday is this weekend?  I plan to take tons of pictures and will blog my heart away when I get back home next week.

TSS - Fortune Cookie Wisdom

TSS has put up one more collection (fortune cookie wisdom) from the soon to be ending About Face Eye Colors line.  The colors look really fun and I placed an order since I am in birthday shopping splurge mode.  I thought that since I have been posting lots of TSS colors on here, my readers might be interested in this new and soon to be gone collection: http://www.theshespace.com/onemorecollection.html

Ship time takes a while but the colors and price are well worth the wait. $3 a jar!

TSS Nirvana Update and Cinderella Clearance Order Swatches

My TSS Nirvana is going well.  I have worn 75 colors without repeats.  I have filled one BE box with TSS colors I have worn so I have moved on to a 2nd box for storage.

My Cinderella Dumped Her Fella Clearance order from TSS came today.  Love these colors. Also picked up 4 more of the eye pigments from the normal eye pigment page.  Pictures are below, all pictures of jars and swatches follow the order of the jar labels in the first picture.  Swatches are shown first applied dry, then foiled.

The best vegan cookie I ever ate - Liz Lovely's Lovely Oh's

Not make up related but eating healthy is related to our beauty and our skin and our general well being.  I am trying to venture out and eat more dairy free foods since I am both lactose intolerant and allergic to milk protein.  I have to say, I have finally found vegan cookie nirvana!  These are the best cookies without dairy that I have ever eaten in my entire life.  Liz Lovely's Lovely Oh's.  They are so satisfying and I don't feel like I am missing a thing.  The chocolate is high quality and decadent.  I am so happy and need to stock up on these. Just wanted to share my awesome find.

The She Space - Time for a "Nirvana"

I have been acquiring a lot of The She Space eye pigments on clearance so it is starting to get to be quite the collection.  I got in the habit of making myself wear all my colors from my BE Nirvana so I figure I should do the same with my TSS colors.

Right now I am keeping my TSS eye colors in Bare Escentuals Beautiful In Pearls collection boxes.  I have 2 of them.  As I wear colors, I move them into a Bare Escentuals Canary Diamonds Collection box.   This keeps me from repeating colors.

The She Space order #9 - more clearance colors

I had a hard time getting good swatch photos of the 2nd grouping of colors, not sure why. The colors are beautiful even though the photo doesn't do them justice.  Maybe the lighting in the room I was in? Colors in jars and swatches follow the order of the labels in the first picture. Swatches are shown first dry, then foiled.

Photo Shoot at Sawicki Studios

I was able to pick up my photo shoot prints and disc today.  I did a photo shoot at Sawicki Studios, just for fun.  He had a weekend only grand opening special that I could not pass up.  I wanted to wait until I lost more weight but figured I should go for it and I am glad I did.  Now I know when I do lost more weight, I will totally love to do a full package photo shoot.

Fellow blogger, Becky, helped me pick out my eye colors and I am really happy with how the whole look came out.  I found the perfect clothes and jewelry and wore some funky high heels I never wear.  Even though you can't see the shoes, I think they make a difference with how I hold myself LOL Mind you my feet hurt and I had to take them off to walk around the building.

Well here are the final photos taken by Chris Sawicki at Sawicki Studios in Amsterdam NY. 

You can view the photo bucket slideshow here: Slideshow or the facebook album here(no account needed to view):  Facebook album

The She Space Order #8 - Pretty She Clearance & Eye Pigments

My 8th TSS (The She Space) order came today, finally. I have to say this package did not want to come to me. It went from Chicago to Las Vegas, was scanned there once, then again the next day and finally made it to Upstate NY today. I saw that it was delivered, went outside and could not find it. I looked around and spotted it...on the lawn to the right of the porch. Must have been a wild 2 days of partying in Vegas for this package LOL I am glad it finally made it home.

Colors in jars and swatches follow the order of the labels in the first picture. Swatches are shown first dry, then foiled.
