Ode to Velvet Orchid 405 Lipstick ( Happy #NationalLipstickDay )







This is a love story of a girl who meets the right lipstick. You notice it across a crowed makeup counter. The name of this lipstick was Velvet Orchid . Though it pains me to admit it I only tried Velvet Orchid for the name. I thought it was a merging of Andy Warhol and Nick Rhodes two iconic men of inspiration ( did I just write that oh well its done) . My love affair with Velvet Orchid was to be sweet and brief for the Queen Estee Lauder banished it too the land of discontinued. Now to see my sweet love I must go to eBay to find the surviving tubes who evaded the exile.   I think of a quote from another man of inspiration William Shakespeare. In the play Romeo and Juliet  the pinnacle story of unrequited love when Juliet says "What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet."  .So there you have it my favorite lipstick Velvet Orchid  by Estee Lauder. Parting is indeed such sweet sorrow.  I've posted some snaps of my happy times with Velvet Orchid. I got one tube in the freezer for a special occasion.

My hair is resistant to product . It wants to be wild and crazy. This morning I used Three products on my hair , With towel dried and combed through hair. I applied Paul Mitchell - Curls Full Circle leave in treatment . I used a dime size amount of the product working it in scrunching my hair. I ate a bowl of Rice chex and almond milk. Got dressed feed the cat . My hair was practically dry . I added a pea size amount of Garnier Fructis Style Sleek and Shine . I finished off my curls with John Frieda Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hair Spray.

Meghan Tonjes Body Image Warrior ( Hate The Donut, Not The Fatty.)





Honestly ! I couldn't agree more with Tonjes. This is exactly what it is like to be overweight in this world. Amen Lady ! You must absolutely love your self as you are now. What I've learned in my older mindset. Is that no matter what your body type you deserve love, happiness and acceptance. This is an excellent way to open up the dialogue.



"If I were 120 pounds eating a pizza in my underwear on Tumblr, I would be 'quirky' and 'cute' and 'real.' But if I'm 300 pounds and eating pizza in my underwear, people are gonna be like: 'You're killing yourself,' 'You're disgusting,' 'You're everything that's wrong with America!'" she said in her video.

40 Year Old Riot Girl

Punk rock has become the Anthem of my 40s . I've always loved it , yet some how fused with wisdom of being older . Frankly not giving a fig what people think of me. Artists like Kathleen Hanna are just igniting this fire in me. I thought I'd need some self help book , to guide me through middle age. Maybe a prolific TEDtalk or two. Though in a amazing plot twist it is punk music that is ushering me into middle age. Im compiling a prettying sweet playlist for you all .

Random Life Post : Edge of Middle Age

I've been thinking a lot about the life , I'm livings. I've survived the depths of depression emerging back into a world . That I don't understand entirely , in the same token doesn't understand me. I watch young people struggling to grow up and aspire to this ideal. In which you are measured by beauty, wealth and success. I'm here to tell you the ideal will mess you up , more than not achieving it. Make your own ideal. Never stop dreaming, creating and loving. When others say you can't do it . Go ahead and at least give it a shot. As I approach 40 years old I'll tell you the only thing I regret is just that not giving it a go. Life will never ever be perfect , though it's a gift everyday your given is beautiful. The next chapter of my life is a mystery to me though I know that no ideal will define me. I will make mistakes though I will have the courage to move past them and learn. don't chase people , those who are meant to be in your life will show up. As you change , grow and evolve this might make people uncomfortable. They have you filed in there head as a certain label. When you grow expect some will leave. That's just fine, keep changing and growing . "
