Fashion

Mr. Owl says I look like a hippie in this dress. A cute hippie, but still a hippie. I told him he’d just have to deal with it because I like this dress and it reminds me of something a Bennet might wear.

Speaking of Mr. Owl, we went to a used  bookstore yesterday and he found me the best books ever: The Hobbit, and The Fellowship of the Ring. Not only are they the best because, y’know, Lord of the Rings, but also because they match the Two Towers and Return of the King copies I found at a thrift store and hadn’t been able to match. I’m exceedingly, nerdily excited that I now have all four books, their cover art matches, and they’re all in lovely condition. Plus, they were all cheap.

Now I need to re-read them.

Random fact about us: we are very, very  good at Donkey Kong on the Wii. Anyone who dares to challenge us, watch it. We’re pro’s.

So pro, we’ve started to automatically collect bananas and coins… in real life.

I think we’ve possibly played too much of that game.

But if we’re not playing Donkey Kong on the Wii, we’re playing Mario on my Nintendo ’64. Because we’re cool like that.

Yes. We are both very nerdy. It’s a secret. Shh. Don’t tell.

I don’t know why, but I gravitate towards the pictures where I’m making a weird face.

And speaking of my face, I went to Sephora the other day to look for a good foundation, and the girl there recommended Makeup Forever’s HD Foundation… and gave me samples. So far, I’m not sure I like it. It still flakes oddly on my skin, and I think it’s a little bit too dry for me. Which is why it flakes oddly.

That, and the foundation is $40. I cannot justify spending $40 on a foundation unless it works miracles. And makes me dinner. And cleans my floors.

Besides, I’m just going to wipe it off at the end of the day.

I think I’ll just go back to my Boots foundation.

I have to confess, though, I did splurge on an eyebrow powder because I have a really hard time matching powder to my brows, and it looks very natural. Whether I’ll get it again depends on whether I have a job by the time I need more, and whether I can find a cheaper alternative or not.

In other news, this ring reminds me of elves. And no, not the Christmas variety. The Tolkein ones.

And these shoes… remind me of picnic baskets. I’m suddenly hungry.

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
