Wishful Thinking

Make Up Wish List

Along with every other female on the planet, I have a make up obsession.  The only issue is I don't have sufficient expendable income to match the obsession.  Therefore, I'm left polyvore-ing wish lists :(

1. Bobbi Brown BB Cream
2. Nars Highlighter in Albatross
3. Anastasia Brow Set
4. Benefit They're Real! Mascara
5. OBC Lip Tar
6. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Red lipstick, all on the paper

Never been the type to wear red lipstick.  I'm starting to play around with make up a lot more though and actually becoming more comfortable with colors outside of nude on my lips.  Currently wearing Maybelline's Roseberry (featured in my previous post).  I ordered this color off of allcosmeticswholesale about 6 mos ago and just wore it for the first time a couple weeks ago (story of all my make up).
Don't mind the distressed brows & lack of combed hair.  I only have enough time for one pampering a day!
P.S. The brown highlights were short lived.  Back to the dark side after a 2 week trial run.

Babysitters Club

Tshirt & skirt // Forever 21

My standard go to outfit of the summer: a signature maxi & casual tee.  It makes running around for 2 year olds much easier.  
I've come  up with the self proclamation that I'm a hipster thug by fashion nature.  I anticipate that it's going to be a movement, so get on the bandwagon while you can.

OOTD: Sneaks n' Skulls

Forever 21 tee & studded vest | Skull scarf | Michael Kors watch (gifted) | Supras $6, vintage :) 

Ever since I spotted these babies for $6 at the thrift store a few months ago, I've been dying for them to make their premiere.  As if reading my mind, a childhood friend called me over on a beautiful cool day to have some tea and alas, their time to shine was birthed!
I'm honestly ready for Fall to get here with its' cooler weather so I can bask in layers of clothing & showcase my collection of kicks.   

Hope my readers are enjoying the last days of summer!  Thanks for checking in.
