You Jamaican' me crazy!

A storm surge passes over the island, making it seem dark.. and even more mysterious that it was before. The palm tree's are swaying in the wind, and suddenly they stop. The water is thrashing violently, but instead of the water being a clear blue.. the water is now a rich turquoise. Though the rich colors in on the island aren't any less vibrant than before, still flickering of lime green and yellow hues. The storm has now passed but the island still reeking of the mysterious sea storm air, and the partying has now commenced.
I was inspired by more of the mysterious Jamaica rather than the "partying" Jamaica. It is kinda overcast where I live today, so that kind of inspired me. I hope you guys like it!

Selfish Saturdays?!: Get To Know Me Better

Bonjour! So I thought, hey why not reveal somethings about myself to you all to connect on a different level you know? Anyways, this will be called "Selfish Saturday's", but to counteract the selfishness I will be doing a "Share the love Sunday. 
To vent a little,I wanted to share that I have been feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland for the past couple weeks, and I don't know why. I have kinda been digging the Vintage-Gothic style that Alice and wonderland kind of has too. This brings up fashion, and If you know me I am the kind of person who is "fashionable", at all. I rock the sweatshirt, jeans and tennis shoes look all year round. Though I do have a fashionable conscious. I have a very definite vision of what I love clothing wise in my head but it doesn't translate at all to my actual body. With that confession aside that I hardly think anyone will understand I am doing a 15 question tag ( I have no clue where it is from, but I found it online and fancied it)!

1. What do you think you can do but can't?
        Well, I like to think I am a good at time management, but in all actuality I am horrid at it! nothing else too exciting!

2. What's a difficult word for you to pronounce?

             Nuclear. I always want to say NucULAR. Never fails, despite my first language being English :)

3. What is a favorite TV show from your childhood?

          I was a 90's kid, and I had a lot. Scooby Doo, Sponge-Bob, Ahh Real Monsters, Franklin, Little Bear, The Wild Thornberries, Blue's Clue's, Sesame Street, Barney, The Winx Club, The powerpuff girls.. I can go on!

4. What are your virtues and vices?

           Virtues: Organization, Makeup, Being Sympathetic, and having a great imagination 
 Vices: Cleaning, Time management, using sarcasm

5. What's more important: love, fame, power, or money?

              All you need is love 


6. If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?

          I don't really know... Probably in a time where everything was innocent and untainted.. Like the 1700's or 1600's in a setting like Red Riding Hood. Or maybe in the 50's specifically in Louisiana living in a big plantation house.

7. If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?

          As I said before I like to "dream" shop in my head, so in my head Urban Outfitters, and Topshop.... Realistically Victoria's Secret, and anywhere that sells Vigoss jeans!

8. Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?

        I actually have a really good memory... I was at home, doing Homework. Fun stuff.

9. Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain? 

          I do but when I wake up and have the dream, I remember if it was reoccurring... but after it slips my mind. I think my last one involved a person of interest...

10. What's your horoscope?

          Pisces... and it describes me to a tee!

11. What does your dream bedroom look like?

           A vintagey-Gothic- Dreamy room... Mostly huge, with a balcony, and one that leads to the woods!

12. What position do you sleep in?

               I am a side sleeper, but I also sometimes sleep on my stomach. Sometimes half and Half.

13. Who is your favorite vampire of all time?

          Dimitri Belovik from Vampire Academy, and the Edward Cullen FROM THE BOOK, not Robert Pattison... I also love Kalona from the House of Night series... Oh and Alexander from Vampire Kisses... I'm done now.

14. What are you currently wearing on your feet?

          Nothing, bare foot. But on my toes I have OPI's Funky Dunky.

15. Do you have neat handwriting? Show us! 

        I have been told I have lovely hand writing and I will show you soon if you want to see it!

Have a lovely Saturday

Glamour Doll Eyes Twi-Shadows Swatches!

As Promised, some swatches of my Glamour Doll Eyes Twi-Shadows! I am sligtly obsessed with vampires, and yes I think twilight the books were amazing.. I think the movie ruined them for me. But I still like the concept! Enjoy the swatches!

Dear Mom, is a nice neutral pink color. I say neutral because I found that it shifts, and can be a cool pink most of the time, but it can look warm. This shade has silver and light pink glitter in it. This is Esme's shade BTW.

This is Alice's shade, and it is loverly! It is a darker plum with gold, magenta and cool blue flecks in it! This looks great over a black base, and on brown eyes to die for!

Family secret is more of a pale silver shade, as I found this out when swatching, and when wet you can really tell.

Black Ice is Rosalie's color, and it is a black with definite silver glitter. Can appear slightly matte though.

Mind Reader is Edward's color from the line, and I loveee this one! By far my favorite! It is basically a dark navy, with some specks in it but appears more matte.

This is Bella's color. It reminds me of MAC Cranberry but richer and deeper and more cool toned. This has purple, and pink flecks in it. 

The Perfect Cure is Dr. Cullen's color, and it is a warmer coco color. It has the lightest green flecks in it too!!

This is really close to "Family Secret" but this is less silver toned. This is more of a "proper" highlight color because it is more white, rather than silver.

Mood Swing is Japers color. I love this one as well. It is so beautiful! It is like a Ghost blue, It is heathery and a medium blue as well. This has Faint blue, and looks like magenta and possibly yellow flecks in it.

This color is very unique. It is Emmett's and It is like a soft, medium, mossy green with green, and peachy flecks in it. Really pretty!

Feelin' Beachy

      I haven't really been feeling beachy, but it has been quite hot around here, and all I have been hearing about lately is how people are going to the beach -__- I am content with my porcelain-esque skin, so no beach for me!  Excuse my eyebrows too, I am trying to grow a part of them out, so don't mind the long hair randomly poking out of my brow. I was originally going too do a "Greece" inspired look.. but I didn't think it quite hit the standard. What colors do you think of when you think of greece? Well, I hope you all have a lovely day wherever in the world you are.. and I will talk to you again soon because I have to get some of my Glamour Doll Eyes swatches up!

SugarPill Love ♥♥

Bonjour! Last week on my Birthday I got a bunch of lovely goodies! I specifically asked for sugarpill and to my surprise I got some! I have heard a bunch about this brand, and how pigmented and how beautifully the colors deliver.  They were all right! I really like the packaging though, a lot! These Eye shadows are vegan and cruelty free, for those concerned like moi :) Lately I have been trying to build up my collection with brighter, more complex colors because I finally decided this is possibly what I want to do with my life! The complexity of these colors are very complicated... but in a good way. I had a heck of a time photographing one of these colors (which will be evident by the 500 pictures of it ). 

Buttercupcake is a more golden butter color. It looks matte on the website and for the most part it is, but there are really small flecks of silver, as hopefully you see in the picture above. It is incredibly nice textured, not completely creamy (few steps away but still has a slight, unnoticeable to everyone except me deal, hardness.. that is good, really good! This is because you notice some eye shadows that are so creamy that crumble when your brush try to pick up some product? So it is a good thing.)

Goldilux is a really unique gold in my opinion. It was hard to capture the true color of this. It can look warm or cool.. here it is photographed warm... but just yesterday I wore it on my eyes, and it seemed to adjust to my skin tone? Crazy! It is a gorgeous tarnished, buried treasure gold.. like the color of doubloons.

Absinthe is most definitely what I will be wearing on St. Patrick's day (FYI) and another complex color. It's main color is a light bright green, but it has golden, looks like pink and also blue flecks embedded in it.
(P.S Do you notice that on every pigment jar for each name it has it's own unique symbol? Like here the star? I thought that was kinda neat!)

Weekender is yet another very complex color (surprise!!). It is a cool purple because of the strong blue undertones in it, but it also has blue and magenta glitter. It appears different ways in different lights, but it is definitely a stunner! If you are cool toned... this is a heaven sent!

Tiara is a very vivid silver. It preforms like a silver should, with a metallic finish and some complexity. This color actually reminds me a lot of Fyrinnaes Dinosaur Plushie. It has it seems a rainbow of flecks going on within it, and this one is definitely cool toned!

This color, was the one that was the hardest to photograph! It is soooooo complex!!! Stella is a black color with predominate blue, purple, and magenta sparkles it it!! It is by far my favorite one, and it is mouth watering to look at!!! I tried to capture the intensity in swatch pictures.. I did I think but the ones where you can really see the sparkles, the pictures are blurry ;/
