my boyfriend and I are renting a car for a few hours to take a quick trip out of new york city, but we’re not sure where to go. does anyone know of any cool things to see no further than an hour and a half outside of the city?
Wow that's a lot of makeup for every day. You should try on wear less sometimes it looks a bit caked on love.@Anonymous
No thanks, I’ll wear as much or as little as I’d like.
Here are some words on makeup and feminism from Bebe Zeva:
“Without makeup, my face is just a random pile of tissue, protein, skin cells, and cartilage. The random arrangement of that tissue, protein, and cartilage tells you nothing about my personality because I was simply born with it. Conversely, my makeup is not random at all. *I* chose it. ME. Not nature. Not my gene pool. Not strands of DNA over which I exercise NO CONTROL. Me and my personality chose this routine. And for that reason, makeup is the absolute closest I will get to self-expression on my face without prosthetic body parts. When a guy tells you he prefers you without makeup, he’s sort of telling you that he prefers it when you don’t make choices to advance your identity. He’s telling you that he prefers your body to your brain. Your brain is the reason why you applied that black eyeshadow. Your actual face and body are idle vessels through which you operate, but actually have absolutely NOTHING to do with who you are. So every time you make a decision to clothe your body or put makeup on your face, you’re making the decision to reflect your thoughts through the canvas that is your physical being.”
I just wanted to say; I'm working on a novel and one of my main characters is designed around your physical appearance and your blog! She's modeled after you and her name is Yvette. Have a lovely, magical day!@sunsetnymph9
wow thank you! I’m honoured :3 I’d love to read it when it’s finished.
how much makeup do you wear daily@Anonymous
daily: concealer, light powder, brow filler (sometimes), and lots and lots of black mascara.
maybe 2-3 times a week I wear lipstick but I only wear one brand/color- sephora cream lip stain in matte red. it stays on better than anything I’ve ever tried and it’s so red that it’s almost blue-ish so it’s one of the few shades that works with my super pale skin.
Last summer we had an inflatable kiddie pool on our roof, and once all of the water evaporated out of it, we just kind of left it sitting there. One day in August it blew off the roof down to the sidewalk outside where the locals sat and played dominos, blasted music from parked cars, and had barbecues. My roommates and I were walking back from the subway and saw the kiddie pool out on the sidewalk filled with water from a fire hydrant and lots of dead fish. They were using it to clean fish for grilling and thanked us for the pool and that’s why I love Bushwick.
eeeeeeee! my boyfriend was walking home from work down 23rd st. and he just saw Grimes.
