I'm taking a temporary respite from photographing my face to save myself from the horror of having to filter pictures (I'm pretty sure everything will get canned) and you from having to see it. I have a few from last week ready, and with them reviews to catch up on. I promise the one on Shimmering Sands will be up soon! I forgot to pack it with me on my trip to London last week, and I didn't want to write about something without really testing it first.
Ah, London. I think I might have found where I belong in the world, and it saddens me that it is the place I just left. I miss it so irrationally - I almost teared up in an elevator yesterday from just wishing I was back there - but I can only wait to see if the winds of life will blow me that way again.
In lieu of a review (and to make myself feel better/worse depending on my optimism), I wanted to post some pictures from a photoshoot I participated in about two years ago. It was shot by Hope Kauffman and some of them appeared in Em Mag, an Emerson College student-run fashion/lifestyle publication.
I've been trying to recreate that winged liner in the last pic ever since the photoshoot and have not succeeded. I wish I knew who made us up that day. I need some tips!
And sneaking in one last morsel of update: there will be a giveaway soon on Messy Wands! (I think this is now a thing. Every time I come back from a foreign country I'll hold a giveaway, deal?) I brought back some yummy UK exclusives and I can't wait till my my face heals so I can show it to you. In the interim, I hope you enjoy these pictures. I'm a little embarrassed that my father shows them off to his friends, but I'm really happy to have had the opportunity to play model.
