Perm-anent Records


So I'm sure you've noticed by now that I've been in a makeup rut (thank you everyone, by the way, for your kind words and generally just not yelling at me about the lack of makeup-ness this past week). I've been trying hard to get back into it, but eyeshadow and lipstick just held no charm over me.

Man. Typing that felt like blasphemy.

Anyway, I'll work as hard as I can to get back on track next week. I've been enamored by all things Keira Knightley recently and there's this particular magazine editorial of her that I'm dying to emulate. As soon as I find the right berry lipstick, you'll see it on the blog.

For now, I offer you a fun fact about me. Two summers ago, I interned at an online publication called Tongue in Chic in Malaysia. For my last assignment, I covered the MTV World Stage press conference and concert. The performers that year were Bunkface (Malaysian band), Tokio Hotel, Wondergirls, and Katy Perry. At the press conference, all the artists took questions from the press and I was one of the many who had my hand up. Anyway, if you're so inclined, you can watch what happened from 6:38 (then ignore the actual question and answer process because it is utterly boring. I should have asked her to pick her top five lipsticks or something).

If you judge me for my unfortunate perm grow-out, I understand. Have a good weekend!

  2. Whooaaa haven't you always been cuuuute! I hope you'll get out of your makeup rut soon, girly! There are some days on which I just want to wash my face, put on my day cream and be done with it! And that's pretty much what I do :) After a couple of days I'll go "hmm maybe it's time to play with something again!"

    1. It was 2 inches of straight hair from my scalp >< It was an unfortunate summer, but it grew out and gave me waves for the rest of the year, so it's good :)

    Even with your 'unfortunate perm' you still look absolutely lovely; your face is beautiful.
