a brown smoky eye, a thunderstorm, and kitties (as always)

So... this was totally an unplanned post.  I'd waaaanted my next post to be a haul or what's in my bag post, but I swear the weather is not on my side! It's been so cloudy and dark, and earlier today in particular there was a horrible storm (several tourists and employees at Sea World's Discovery Cove were struck by lightning!). This is Florida in the summer, my friends - if it's not 100 degrees and unbearable hot, it's pouring rain. I can't wait for fall (I'm a Chicago girl at heart!). :)

Anyways, I've done this same look the past two days, and despite the yuck weather, I was able to snap a few pics. And yes, I'm wearing the same top as in my last post - I just wanted to throw something on to run a few errands (like run to the post office, which ALSO was struck by lightning - crazy!!) before work.  Yada yada yada, enjoy!

And as always, a few more pictures of Sammy & Mouse. I was just informed that August 17th was Black Cat Appreciation Day - I definitely appreciate my little "smudgy pudgy" Mouse! :)

Sammy smiles when he's sleeping :)

Ever so curious about what I'm up to!

Mouse stalking my Fruity Pebbles (I let him lick the bowl when it's empty before I wash it - it's his favorite!)

Weather-permitting, I'll see you lovelies soon!

Thanks for reading. :)

  1. Aww kitties! They are just precious! :) And I love your smoky eyes, the brown really makes them pop.

  2. Your makeup is beautiful, per usual. I'm also loving the back to blond hair! Looks great. Meanwhile, the kittens are super adorbs, and it makes me miss being *not* allergic to cats. Cats are the Also, stay away from the lightning! Yeeeesh :/ <3 xxx

  3. i love your smoky have done it very well xox

  4. Hey ladies!

    Rachel - I'm allergic, too, and it sucks! I was using Allegra for two months and that stuff really didn't do it for me. But I've been using Zyrtec the past week or so, and I haven't had any of my usual sneeze-fests or eye itching. Hopefully it keeps working... Oh, and believe it or not, the storm took off in full force while I was in the shower! Not good. :P Btw, I love your youtube ventures - I actually love having them on while I drive - sometimes I actually reply to things you're saying like you're in the car with me! (Should I be admitting that...?) Last ramble - I really want to get my hands on the YSL Midnight Garden palette now. Funny how at first I was "eh" about it and now I NEED it (especially for the green!). :P

  5. I love the kitties, and the smoky eyes look gorgeous x

  6. I can see why that foundation is your HG. Your skin and the brown eyeliner look amazing in these pics! <3 the kittehs!

  7. Love those kitty pix! I really like your hair color and make-up in these pix.

  8. love the Tom Ford lipstick on you! Sammy & Mouse are too cute *^_^*

  9. You have BEAUTIFUL eyes omg! And your kitties...*awww* them!

  10. Thanks Alexis! I love your puppy, too - sooo cute! :)
