EOTD 04.24.11

Hi there.

This was my look for Easter. I was inspired by the vibrant colors of jelly beans! :D I don't honestly think this look is wearable, but it was so much fun! Thanks for looking!

Jelly Bean Eyes

All colors used were from the CS 88 original palette. Over NYX jumbo pencil in Milk. 

I also ran over to Walgreens to take advantage of Wet N Wilds 69 cent sale. All their products that are regularly 99 cents are currently on sale till late May. Im not exactly sure of the date it ends. However the Walgreens closest to my home was picked pretty bare. I only got 3 things, two of which I wore with this look.  I got the black eyeliner pencil and this lippie.

This is 505A Light Berry Frost Lip Stick. Its a nice bright fuchsia with a blue sparkle! Very pretty. Im happy with the feel of it on my lips. Its very creamy, however I can't vouch for the longevity of the wear as I didn't wear it very long.
Close up for sparkle!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I've been playing a TON of Rift lately, and before that I had houseguests for about 2 weeks. Hopefully, I will get back into the swing of things. I have a lot of posts planned. I am also gearing up for a giveaway at 100 followers, or around there. Picking out lots of cute things for you guys! Talk to you all soon!

Bokeh Face Collection Contest Entry

This post is in response to a contest going on over at Bokeh Face Cosmetics. If you want more information regarding the contest check it out HERE

If I had a collection to create .. WoW.. I seriously have a giant list going here. I have a TON of ideas floating around in my weird noggin. Out of all the ideas for collections I have, the one I keep coming back to is this idea.  I love Coen brothers movies. They are always so original and tragic and hilarious.  So I would like to have a Big Lebowski Collection made.

Introducing :

The Big Lebowski Collection  A  Bokeh Face/ MrsKittyKaBoom Collaboration

Donny Dust: a matte gray with pink sparkles. (good night sweet prince)

Bunnys Toe?: a bright tealy green color, (You want a toe? I can get you a toe.)

Mark it Zero: Opalescent khaki, a neutral highlight. Walter says Smokey's toe was over the line, and the man with the gun gets to make the rules.

The Dude Abides: A rich warm brown. This color looks as comfy and worn-in as the dudes bathrobe. (It's good knowin' he's out there.)

Peed on my Rug: Rich oriental red with golden hues. (That rug really tied the room together.)

Jesus' Jumpsuit: Bright royal purple with purple sparkles. ( Nobody 'effs with the Jesus)

Autobahn: Shiny black perhaps with a red duo chrome. reminiscent of vinyl. Nihilistic, cuz believing in nothing can be exhausting. (Ve vant ze money, Lebowski)

White Russian: Creamy pearlescent ,Off-white. The color of cream, Kahlua, and vodka, Just how the Dude likes it.

Gutterballs: An antique sparkly gold. A bowling viking goddess. This shimmery golden beauty strikes out on every frame to the song "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" .

Urban Achiever: a pearly powder blue. Color of tee shirts worn by the inner city children of promise. "The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.

ZombieGirl Onyxia

***UPDATE 4.19.11***
The owner of ZombieGirl, Cyndee contacted me shortly after this post was made and advised me the lilac colored bow I received was sent to me in error and said they DO have a royal purple bow! She immediately corrected the error and sent me out (and I got it today!) the color I had originally ordered! This is outstanding customer service and I am SO extremely happy to have my new favorite bow!  Thanks ZombieGirl for top notch service! You're the best Cyndee!

 *WARNING* This post is gonna be HUGELY photo heavy & quite long.

Me & Zombie Walk
I like to window shop online.... and here's why. A part of all of us is that awesome satisfaction we get when we get nice things for ourselves I think. This compulsion drags us towards massive amounts of shopping and the uphoric feeling we get when we've gotten a great deal or found the perfect what-not. So to curb my spending and keep my money where it should be, I e-window shop. I go to my favorite sites, pick out everything I love, put it all in my cart, and then ... when its check out time.. I just press the little X and close out of the window. I still get the feeling of shopping without all the guilt. It satisfies me to just look at the lovely things and what I'd do with them, and certain things I make mental notes of and return to do an actual purchase. I don't like to impulse shop. If I like something enough in a couple months, and feel I can't do without it, I'll go back and purchase it at a later date if I can't stop thinking about it.

So, the reason I told you all that was because I wanted to tell you all about an accessory company that I've been stalking for awhile and now I'm in love with. This company feeds my Psychobilly needs perfectly!  The company is ZombieGirl & Zombaby Designs (she also makes the cutest baby things!).  I noticed her shop first on Shop Homemade and she also sells right off her facebook fanpage. Just FYI her facebook always has a much better selection & is always being updated.  Her designs are so adorable and everything is handmade with love by Cyndee.

Skelly in mah hair
Every day since I first saw one of her bows I would be doing my hair and picturing them in my doo's! I needed to have them. After about 3 months of drooling online over them, I decided I needed a few in my life. The prices are exceptionally resonable,  and this is what I got:
4 Mini bows, 1 mini flower, 2 regular bows, and 1 ribbon bow.
I keep them all clipped on a bandanna on my wall.
The package was shipped about 2 weeks after I ordered, but I received them quite quickly after they shipped. All in all I waited about 3 weeks after I ordered, which I think is pretty reasonable. This considering she just had a newborn and like I said, everything is handmade.  I love everything I was sent, the quality is high and I love the fact that each clip is felted so that it doesn't rip or pull your hair out. Each little skully seems to also be well attached. I can honestly say that there is only 1 issue I had with my order. One of the bows I received is no where near the same color as it was depicted on her page. The purple bow on the page was a royal and dark purple. What I received was a very light lavender bow.  Now.. don't get me wrong, it is still cute and all that, but it's certainly NOT the color I had expected. All in all I am very happy with what I got and I would definitely order from them again. ('cuz I haven't gotten one of the BIG beautiful flowers she makes yet!)

Mini Bows (from top to bottom Gemstone, Purple Fancy, Stalin & Lip Gloss)
Regular Bows (Zombie Walk & Pink Rhododendron)
Ribbon bow & Mini flower (The Guilty & Orange)

Ribbon bow "The "Guilty" my FAVORITE!
Mini bow "Gemstone"
The next little bit is just about the kitten the hubby & I have adopted. She is one little she-devil. Keeping me up all hours, nibbling and playing with me while I try to sleep, getting into all sorts of little demon kitty trouble while I'm not looking.
Bad Ony on top of the Mr's computer monitor! Eeek!
 Yesterday, she learned a new trick! She climbed up all the hanging clothes in the closet and  got herself stuck on the top shelf. *grrr* Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy to have her, she's just a handful as a baby! Everyone, meet Onyxia ( my other kitty is named Murloc.. no I don't have problem. LoL) .
Onyxia (drops epic "lewtz" & sometimes I wanna hang her head in SW LoL)
 We don't normally call her Onyxia, we call her Ony or Nyxi. But I think her name fits her perfectly. Her alignment is Chaotic Evil & shes a black dragon. Yup yup I'd say that perfectly describes her.

Nyxi says Om Nom Nom
Ony sleeping in the tissue box. Yes, it still has tissues.. i mean, a mattress in it.
Onyxia & Me
Thanks for reading! Ony & I are so happy you decided to stop by! We hope you are having a great weekend and hope to see you back here soon!

EOTD 03.31.11 & 04.01.11

Hi-diddly-ho, neighborinos!

I just wanted to quickly post a few photos while I have a moment! Here are a few EOTD I've done using my newly obtained BFTE minerals. I really love them. The first look I had to do because well, my favorite color is purple. So I needed to try a few of those out first. This is what I ended up using for 3.31.

Highlight- Butt Naked
Inner 1/3 lid & Tear duct area- Crystal
Middle lid- Grape
Outer 1/3 Lid- Rome
I also was trying out ELF's liquid eyeliner in 4203 Black, and I was pretty happy with the results considering it only cost me a dollar. Woot! We'll see how it handles over time though.

The 2nd days look was based pretty much on the weather. It was a soggy, grey day here in Seattle on April Fools day, no joke! So I wanted something that represented the overcast day, but with a spark of color in there. This is what I came up with.

Highlight- Butt Naked
Inner Corner- Peacock
3/4 lid & crease- Bondage
I also made Peacock into a frankenliner. So pretty!
This one shows the shimmer in Bondage a little better than the photo below.

Also, I didn't forget about my awesome hair accessory post, I just have been a little busy lately. Mr.KittyKaBoom and I recently adopted a new baby kitten into our family and she's a HANDFUL! Adorable, but truly testing my ability to function without sleep. Haha.. So I promise to have the new post up within the next few days along with a couple pix of the little one as well. Hope you all are having a great weekend!
