she still couldn't fly


I love shopping for great winter wear when it all goes on sale. I found a couple of great sweaters and dresses (including this one) at H&M recently for $10-$15 dollars. It's not as fun as thrifting, but you can end up with some great staples for mere dollars.

Today is the first day I achieved a decent wing with my liquid eyeliner and I am soooooo excited! For some reason I have a real problem with liquid liner because most times I can't get a perfect wing or I end up trying to fix one because it doesn't look the same as the other...I think the solution is just to not worry too much. Accept imperfection. Seriously, even though they ended up a little mismatched I still was happy. I was so happy that I wore the makeup all day, even when I was at home in my sweats. This has been a good lesson for me and I may be inspired to get out the liner and try it more often now that I'm not married to the idea of the "perfect" look.

love your thick and pretty handmade scarves! they are so beautiful! the only reason i know they are handmade is because i recognize the yarn!! they add this really great texture to your outfits, i love it! it took me FOREVER to get liquid eyeliner right! the more i practiced though, the easier it got. even though there are definitely days it just doesn't work out!! haha.

the eyeliner looks so pretty on you!

I was the same way with liquid eyeliner at first. I think it takes a while to get used to. you'll get better at the application over time and you'll be doing it in a flash!

some days, though, I still can't make both eyes even similar... there are good days and bad, haha.
