Patrick Wolf's new video for the song Together- one of my favorites from the new album. I really love this video; I think the taxidermied animals are a nice addition and the mirrored images are very fitting for this song.

As I was flipping through the latest Nylon magazine, I noticed a rather uniquely colored ombre blush. I glanced at the caption next to it and saw that it was from Daphne Guinness' upcoming MAC collaboration. I was so excited to hear that the two would be collaborating but honestly, after seeing everything, I'm kind of disappointed with it. I guess I didn't really know what to expect; this is definitely Daphne's style but I don't really see myself buying anything, except maybe for the light blonde brow pencil.

It sounds like I dislike the collection, don't get me wrong the colors are gorgeous, it's just not really my taste. Judging from the photos above, it doesn't particularly seem like anything I'd pick out for myself. I'll definitely test a lot of the products in store, though. All in all, I'm looking forward to this collection. And who knows, I might change my mind about it after testing things out and fall in love!
I'm curious - what are your thoughts on this collection?

PS - I still have not gotten anything from the Gareth Pugh collection :( but I will sometime this week. I went to the mall the day it was released and it's only to be sold in select stores and not at the counters in Macy's or Nordstrom's. I'll have to go to a different mall that's kind of farther away to make my purchases, but I'll have a post for you guys with pictures and reviews so keep your eyes peeled for that. xoxo

In memory of my grandfather. He was a dentist/surgeon and got me interested in teeth at a young age. He had extracted ones from patients that he'd show me and I thought it was the coolest thing to see the entirety of a tooth. He passed away six years ago and we were extremely close despite the fact that most of the time we spent together was in a hospital due to his health. I wish I would have been able to get know him even better now that I'm older; I know we'd be much closer. He was an amazing man and I miss him dearly, but instead of mourning his death, I celebrate his life and all the moments we shared.

My ideal winter wardrobe would look a lot like this. I can never get enough of the color black.

I've been listening to Justice's new album Audio, Video, Disco on repeat in my car all this week, and this song is one of my favorites from it. It's pretty different than Cross and I'm glad they used more lyrics/vocals this time around. Very well executed and very intense. Every time I listen to it I can't help but feel the need to get up and dance like there's no tomorrow.

Saturday night I went to another midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture show and I got to bring two of my friends, Emily and Liz, who had never been before. They had such a blast! It was really great seeing them having such a great time and laughing at all the stupid things that happen during the show, and if you've ever been to a midnight show you'd know that there's a ton of that. Afterwards, they both talked about how much they loved it and stated they want to start going every year! Yay!!

Monday of this week I had to register for second semester classes, and I never realized how stressful that could be. I stayed up until midnight thinking registration would open then but it turns out it would at eight. Well, my school's website crashed not too long after the hour and I figured I'd just do it later at school. I logged on not to long before ten and nearly everything I wanted was full! It was so annoying to try and figure out what classes I could take in place of the ones I had originally planned out and trying to get good times. Overall, my schedule turned out to be pretty decent. Here's the final result:
  • GEOG 111 - intro to geography
  • ESCI 111 - physical geology 
  • GEOG 201 - world regions
  • PSYC 208 - cognitive psychology
  • ART 225B - art history (mannerism-present)
It's quite a bit of geography, but that was basically all that was available. I just find it ironic that I'm taking more geography than any other subject since I'm majoring in psychology.. Let's hope that everything goes smoothly second semester!

I am head over heels in love with this collection. Each piece, accessory, and each tiny detail is amazing. I would love to get my hands on one of those sweaters/jackets for this winter!
