On the Thumb

That title is more like, On the Dumb. But, ACTUALLY, like On the Run.

On the Run? They should have called that show, “Get Your Fucking Life for Three Hours.” I’ve watched that HBO special two and a half times, and I haven’t stopped yelling at Bey to kill ’em all dead. She’s doing it, too!! I mean, I have this need for a beanie with one of those Roman soldier brush thingies on top, now!

I’d stitch one up myself, but I’m a hundred percent sure the brush would just flop over like a melancholy rooster. And, also, I have no idea where you get one of those brushes.

On Saturday night, I had the champagne flowing, and the cheese plates stacked high. I don’t want to brag, but there were upwards of FIVE different kinds of cheeses. So, yeah. It was pretty fucking gross. I definitely got a stomach ache from all dat cheese. Worth it though!

In honor of the show, I broke out my Sara M. Lyons “Queen Beyonce” nail decals! I love these hilarious lil designs! They’re so perfect and cheeky! They’re also REALLY easy to apply; all you need are some small, sharp scissors, and a bowl of water. They’re basically temporary tattoos for your nails, they have the same application concept as that bitchin’ ying-yang sign you bought out of the machine at the pizza parlor that one time.


Nails are one of my all time faves, Con Limon by Floss Gloss

I fucked mine up by not using a lighter polish underneath them. As a result, Bey looks a little jaundiced. Jayndiced? Haha. Get it?
Bey-Z looks better here:

See? On the Thumb. Whomp, whomp.

Sara (probs too familiar) makes dope shit that really speaks to me. Like, her Babewolf, or, her “In Lux We Trust” piece, which is so awesome, it kind of makes me want to cry. I just realized I’m gushing, and I was gonna be all, “I’m a gusher,” but that’s not right. Let’s say, “I’m a fan.” That doesn’t sound as damp.

These Bey decals are available only from Emerging Thought. Buy them HERE.

MAC Heroine Lipstick

MAC Heroine

Dat liner doe.

I’m a sucker for a purple lip.

Purple eyeshadow, too. I’m a sucker for purple eyeshadow.

PURPLE NAILS! Don’t even get me started!!

Long story short; I guess purple is my favorite color.

Well…and black. Is leopard a color? No, that’s silly! Leopard is a neutral!

“Leopard is a neutral,” has been my life motto since I was 16. I figured it out, and never looked back.

The look above mixes up a purple lip with a leopard top, so I was pretty into it.  The lip is MAC’s Heroine, a vibrant, red-based purple. This color was a cult hit that MAC brought back, and made a part of their permanent collection. That’s good news because I could really see myself finishing this tube of lipstick. I mean, as soon as it came home, I made it a part of MY permanent collection (the zipper pouch inside my purse).

Heroine has a satin finish, and it wears down to a bright matte that has a lot of staying power. I really appreciate that in a lip color. I love to do my makeup, but, I really hate having to constantly reapply my lip. I’m a modern woman! I don’t have time for that kind of nonsense. I don’t have time, and, also, I forget. And, also, pizza.

Oh, man. Pizza sounds so good right now. What time is it? 9:15?!?! Pizza isn’t even open yet. That’s ok. Everyone knows the sweetest pizza is the one you have to wait for.

This lip color goes with all my favorite faces; neutral eye/bold lip, bold eye/bold lip, glasses/bold lip.

MAC Heroine x glasses

Glasses/bold lip goes ANYWHERE, with EVERYTHING. I love it! If you wear glasses, and you want some compliments, do it. People fucking love it. If you don’t have glasses, I feel bad for you, you’re obviously a dum-dum. Everyone knows glasses make you super smart. Glasses are also the best way to hide your true beauty. When you take them off, everyone is super impressed by how good looking and popular you are! WOWZA.

This post, you guys, it’s not so good. I’m sorry. I accidentally took a summer vacation, now I’m super rusty!



That Rusty might be my favorite. I love the Anthony Michael Hall Rusty, but, this Rusty is hysterical to me. Those Rustys are tied for first? Second place is Nick Papagiorgio Rusty. David from Roseanne Rusty is neither here nor there for me.

Buy Heroine by MAC HERE or in stores.

MAC x Rocky Horror Collection for Fall 2014!!!!

mac x rocky horror


MAC announced the Rocky Horror Fall collection, and I am SHIVERING WITH ANTICI………….


I see a nail polish, a lipstick, and a couple glitters or pigments that I’m going to need. The collection drops online September 29th, and in stores on October 2nd. Lucky for me, that’s just a few days before my birthday! I think the traditional 33rd birthday present is Dr. Frank-N-Furter themed lipstick, so this works out great!

Temptalia has the full details, and photos. Go up to the lab, and see what’s on the slab! Check it out!
