I never should have started her on this, now she bugs me to do it! What kind of a monster have I created?!?! One of these days I’m going to have to quit slacking with her blog. Oh well, at least she’s a loving woman, full of beauty and hot tempered enough to challenge a Jalapeño. So here ya go, the star of the show, Sara!

A motley of warm ambers, frosted clear whites,and cranberries accented with bronze and striated red leaves.
First applied two layers of Super Shine Naturistics in Peach Bum on full nails. I then tipped them in two coats of NYC Long Wearing nail enamel in Plaza Plumberry for an autumnal take on the french manicure.
I used a Milani quad of eyeshadows, Autumn Earth. This iridescent quad features ivory, copper, brick red, and a festive green.
I first applied ivory over whole eyelid and browbone to achieve a softer less saturated pigmentation of finished design. I split my eyelid in half. Used the brick red on the outer half of both eyelids and browbone Then I lightly layered the copper on the center of lids, browbones slightly over some of the red leaving about a quarter of space near eyeducts ivory. I reapplied ivory there for a better fade in to copper. Under the lower lashes I applied brick red to outer half, then finished rest with the copper.
To complete this look I coated my eyelashes in Hard Candy’s 1,000 Lashes Fiberized lash weave mascara in Lush Green.
For my lips , it’s another Milani product, a lipstick in Black Cherry. Lipstick doesn’t last very long on me (about 2 hrs) so I’m hoping to purchase some lipstain in a few colors in the upcoming weeks, and maybe get a hold of some special effects for gamedays and other festive occasions. Stuff for hair would be nice too.
This is a trio of very old cephalopod fossils. Bought them at the Puyallup Fair for a good price. Highly detailed pieces, very intricate. If you look closely on the largest , you’ll notice minuscule crystals in some of its chambers and larger ones in others. These ammonites scooted along in our oceans 260– 65 million years ago. Appearing first in the Devonian Age. At one point in time these creatures were apex predators feasting on other living cephalopods, mollusks, and various fish. Some grew to amazing sizes,varying from centimeters to a few feet in diameter. They were wiped out during the Cretaceous Paleogene extinction event, a mass extinction of a great quantity of life both terrestrial and marine. (great stuff to read about) The nautilus is one of their closest living relations, octopi are another.
