I’m Sorry

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to write to all of you to tell you that for personal reasons I won’t be blogging for awhile. I’m sorry; that entries have been so sparse. I’ll keep the fb page and post up articles and picture, but posts will rarely be done. I really appreciate everyone that has supported this blog and taken time in their day to read it and for those who commented or hit like, it has meant a lot to me. I really love writing on here, but for reasons out of my control I cannot keep on doing so for now.

Giveaway Winner!

Youngblood Cosmetics’ PR rep and myself have decided on who has won the giveaway and instead of making you wait an extra week we decided to go ahead and notify you today!

Our Giveaway Winner is:

Natasha!

Here is the answer she gave that stood out the most:

I love the simplicity of their website and the fact that the product was originally created for use in a medical setting, using higher standards than other makeup companies. I would also love to try their cream blush, I love the shimmer and that it is oil free.

I want to thank everyone who entered and who has started following my blog; I very much appreciate it and hope you continue to win!

Mad Men – Far Away Places – Jane Sterling

Mad Men post of the week; on time this week!

Today I have to have to do Jane Sterling’s look. I mean she stood out the most, with her princess Lea look. Super futuristic – is it very 60s? Hmm…

Mad-Men-Jane-Sterling

Jane and Roger Sterling in Far Away Places - Season 5

What’s up with Jane’s look for the dinner party at her shrinks? What do you think of it?

jane-and-roger-sterling-mad-men

Mad Men - Jane and Roger Sterling

Careful Spoiler Alert!

This week’s episode was trippy, wasn’t it? It was also a different approach that they haven’t done before. Following three of the main characters through out their day, but specifically having us follow each one separately rather than intertwined.

First there’s Peggy, who’s storyline pissed me off, because of how she was treated by the men she had to deal with. I’m so glad those aren’t so much the times anymore. She is a good copywriter and yet because she is a woman she is considered a condescending little girl. So I get why she went off to the movies to relax and get her mind off things. Apparently giving a guy a hand job in the theater helps too? That was odd, but for some reason not surprising from her. I don’t know why she does the things she does sometimes. It wasn’t exactly her best moment tho, however, I was happy that’s the job she gave him and not another kind, if you know what I mean. Her day ends with the new hire, Ginsberg, telling her that he was born in a concentration camp, but “that can’t be” so that he is truly from mars, and somehow ended up in an orphanage. That shit (excuse my language) was unexpected! They better play that up!

Roger Sterling. I love Roger and his tongue and cheek humor. He’s my type of douche. Roger ends up going to a dinner party he had to go to with Jane, because well, that’s his wife and she asked him. Of course Roger being Roger he didn’t pay attention and realize that it was going to involve and LSD desert. Different actions of his brought on different hallucinations. I want to watch again, because I’m sure I missed one or two. Eventually Roger and Jane, who as aforementioned, looked spacely, make it home to hang in the tub together still high and finally to Jane saying their marriage is over. Each were waiting for the other to say it. She didn’t remember in the morning but Roger sweetly reminded her of the events before heading out.

Don Don Don…. Typical man machismo, especially of the time. Of course because he IS the man and Megan is the woman, he doesn’t think to ask her whether she wants to get away for the weekend and rather tells her. They drive off and they stop at the diner that Roger had wanted to go to with Don, and cuts her off while ordering her desert and orders her something she doesn’t like. She tastes it says she doesn’t like it and Don gets pissy. Oh boo hoo Don, anyway at this point Megan is angry and makes a scene and Don storms off leaving her. Wtf Don!? Anyway he comes back and frantically looks for her, but she’s long gone on a bus home. When he gets home she doesn’t want to let him in so he breaks down the door and chases her around the house until they fall to the ground having a full on break down. Uh oh…..

Onto Jane’s Look:

Eyes: Stila Eyeshadow for the lid in Black Cat and highlight in Chinois

Face: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Foundation in your skin tone color

Cheeks: Benefit Boxed Powder Bronzer in Hoola

Lips: Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten

Mad Men Signal 30 Megan’s Look

As I previously promised, here is our Mad Men post for the week! Megan Draper, Don’s 2nd, much younger, wife. This week Megan got Don to do a few things he would usually never do. Suddenly a good husband; man of integrity? Will it last? We shall see.

Some Spoilers. Beware.

This week was funny, when Pete got punched in the face. I laughed the entire fight in the conference room. I loved how Roger and Don, did nothing to stop, because it was truly amusing to them to. In the words of Joan, everyone at some point or another has wanted to do that. Although, we all know there was double meaning to her statement after Lane kisses her in his office and she classily puts a stop to it. I love Joan! What’s up with Pete being the tortured?! Sigh… he annoys me, but perhaps his story is leading somewhere other than just sleeping with a whore and being a sad sad man, who is not great at much. Peggy look phenom! I wanted to do her look this week, but no good pictures to show you came up and so I decided to go with Megan, who also looks great. I just love how much Peggy’s character has grown though.

On to the Look!

Mad-Men-Season-5-signal-30-megan-don

Lips: Youngblood Lipstick in Vivid

Cheeks: Blush Amazonian Clay in Exposed – Nude

Face: Laura Mercier Foundation Powder

Eyes: Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Evidence and Zephyr,  Tarte Cashmere waterproof Gliding Liner (the link goes to a tarte collection, but I believe you can find the liner on amazon or other beauty sites), and of course my fave brow pencil; Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

My Vintage Purse Holds SO Much Makeup

Hi All!!!!

Quick reminder before I get to today’s post!

ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!!! Deadline is MAY 2nd and I will announce the winner the 12th!

———————————————————————————————————

How is everyone’s weekend going?? Monday is just a few hours away from some of us, though I know some of my foreign readers are already knee high into Monday! I hope everyone’s week starts up wonderfully. I highly apologize for not being on lately. This was a hard week on me, but this week promises to be much more pleasant. Can I just say that the fact that I have one day with 12 hours of school to do followed by the ability to sleep in a bit the next day, because internship starts later in the day than my job does makes me a happy camper!

Well for any of you who do not know me, I am a vintage lover, real and repro. I also have a slight addiction to etsy and so I vintage shop for bags there and hair accessories, as well as window shop for so much more vintage. ie. future furniture I’ll get and etc

Navy-Vintage-Purse

My Purse

While I’m not here to promote the seller, as this IS a beauty blog and not a fashion one, I must say LOOK AT ALL THE COMPARTMENTS. Purse makers from way back when were smart = small compact bag with 5 pockets that fits an infinity of things! Nothing bulky and ostentatious.

So what make up is in there, that I must say, I easily find??? Well because I’ve been working on a few reviews I’ve carried a little bit of everything!

Sue Devitt Bronzers, Ferro lip gloss, blush and bronzer, and product that I personally use! ie. Red lipstick from Smashbox, my Tarte eye liner, MUFE concealer, lastly the pulse point Boyfriend fragrance…. and the brushes I use to apply the products as well as moisturizer. Oh did I mention I also have a graphic novel, my wallet, keys and school ID in there too. You would never guess right? And it closes no problem… AMAZING purse. Why don’t designers do practical and beautiful much anymore. What do you carry in your bags? Does it get lost easily in there? I have absolutely no problem finding my stuff. This purse was sent from above! I spent under $20 for this bag…I mean come on I’ve spent 6x that on less practical purses. Have any of you ever made a practical buy that you wanted to just scream for ever spending a million times more before? I won’t lie tho, I’m a purse hoarder and I’m sure I’ll spend a wad again, but I’m ever so in love with my vintage bags right now!

I want to let you know that a few more of the brands I’ve mentioned on here will pop up on My Beauty Bunny as contributing posts and I will definitely link you.

Mad Men – Mystery Date – Joan’s Look and Awesomeness

Mad Men was on again last night! Ya’ll know what that means…I have to a. do a tiny recap and b. pick one of the beautiful women in the show and try to recreate her makeup look!

Spoiler Alert: skip if you haven’t watched!

Um did that Don scene make anyone else squirm a bit? Don worries me, especially because his psyche is all out of wack-dreaming such a thing! Even if he is sick! I read on tv-recaps that it was a parallel to the side story line of the Chicago murders and how the sole survivor hid under the bed…except for Don’s former lover was dead under the bed, with one shoe on – la Cinderella (theme of the episode).

Now to the beautiful Christina Hendricks’ character Joan! How proud is everyone of her today? I mean it’s about friggin’ time she put that  husband of hers in place. I mean who marries their rapist!? Anyway, I’m glad he’s not the baby daddy and that it’s Roger, even if he has his very very bad moments. Also how funny that Peggy made him shell out a bunch of cash. Go Peggy!!!!

Ok NOW to Joan’s Look!

Joan-mad-men-mystery-date

Joan in the Mystery Date Episode

Let’s try to recreate Joan’s look:

Eyes: Incredible Wear Gel Liner by Youngblood Cosmetics in Eclipse — Tarte SmolderEYES in Bronze — Stila Eyeshadow in Poppy

Face: NARS Torrid Blush – Youngblood Pressed Powder Foundation in Barely Beige

Lips: Kat Von-D in A-Go-Go

Let’s see… I don’t normally (in the last like 2 mad men posts, hah!) add a dress to go with the look, but I feel compelled!

January Jones – Betty – Mad Men

Mad Men aired again Sunday! As I’ve said before I’m a major Mad Men fan, and in episode three we finally got to see January Jones! She’s “fat” – I’m pretty sure some of it has to do with her being pregnant at the time and also makeup, because she’s back to her usual self now. =)

january-jones-mad-men-betty

The whole story line for her in this episode revolves around her weight and possible cancerous tumor. For those of you who haven’t seen the episode, I won’t say much more than that. Regardless of weight, January Jones is beautiful and of course due to the show’s setting she looks classic. So to try to get the look sans feeling down or sick I would use the following:

Eyebrows – Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde Golden Taupe

Eye Shadow – Urban Decay Naked Palette (Dark Horse and Side Car)

Mascara/Falsies – Urban Decay Instaflare False Lashes (which are only corner lashes) and Dior – Dior Show Mascara

Face – Make Up For Ever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in Pink Porcelain

Cheeks – Tarte Cheek Stain in Tickled and Bronzer NARS Bronzing Powder in Irresistiblement

Lips  – NARS Lipstick in Jungle Red

(All Items can be found at Sephora)

Jennie Garth (Kelly Taylor) – Gossipy Post

Jennie Garth played Kelly Taylor in the [original] Beverly Hills 90210 (the good one tee hee). That doesn’t even show my age, because I shouldn’t of been watching it when I did haha. I love Kelly! Especially in the college years and afterward too. I can’t help but also loving Brenda, I mean how do you not love Brenda!? Anyway, I’m going on on a Beverly Hills 90210 tangent…let’s get back to Jennie.

Jennie-Garth

Jennie Garth - Taken from People Magazine

I feel so sad for her. From what I’ve read she is devastated and really didn’t want the divorce. She seems to feel like her soon to be ex husband, Peter Facinelli, didn’t really want to work on the marriage anymore, after 11 years of marriage. Hell I’m devastated after a break up that’s no where near 11 years long when it happens, I can’t even fathom a marriage with children! From People Magazine: she still wishes Facinelli “had wanted to try harder, try again, try something else.” (Sigh, I sometimes wish divorce wasn’t an option (aside from serious situations like “he beats me” – and the sort, it just seems like people don’t try anymore. Vows mean something, otherwise don’t get married! Yes, it is that simple, don’t argue with me, because I will delete your comments.)

jennie-garth-and-peter-facinelli

Jennie and Peter - He's such a pretty boy...not my type fyi.. lol

From the looks of it, this dude let Twilight movies get to his head. Um kid, no one even knows who you are. The movies weren’t famous because of you…just sayin’! Hopefully he regrets it, but for now, he’s the one who filed for divorce, so clearly this is really on him.

“I can’t change it. I can’t be sad and stay in bed about it anymore. I have to move forward,” – People Magazine. “I’m slowing finding my own voice again…There are days when it seems I got it all figured out and days when I lose sight. I just have to keep on my path.” —> Makes me sad to know how she feels, not so much because of who she is, but because having a heavy heart and children and knowing person you want to grow old with doesn’t want to grow old with you seems like a lot to bear. =(  — “I’ve gone through my darkest parts and I’m coming out of it,” she said. “I’m okay. I don’t know what the future holds, but then I’ve never been a planner. And maybe that’s a good thing.” – People Magazine

She’s gonna be on the CMT channel doing a reality show with her daughters in the country: Jennie Garth – A Little Bit Country. Apparently the ex will not be in it, but there will be some goings on about the split. I’m kind of a family reality tv junkie… (ahem Bethenny Ever After ahem) so I’m going to check if I have the channel and watch.
