Youtube Update!! Oh Yeahhh, This is Another Two-fer!

Good morning everyone (or whatever time of day it is when you read this)!!
I just wanted to post a link to my latest Youtube video... it's been SO LONG. Especially considering I completely spaced on posting my other most recent video onto my blog. 

How I ever graduated with high honors in both high school and undergrad with this horrific memory of mine is beyond me. Le sigh.

This video is from almost a month ago but here you go anyways; it's my brow routine!!

Here's the latest video of mine. It's the best and worst of beauty for September!

Can you believe that tomorrow is the beginning of October??? I sure can't and will probably continue to be in denial until I receive my October Birchbox in a couple of weeks. September really flew by!!

What are your favorites from September?
Any good September memories?
I will continue to remember my first day of grad school when I fell out of a bus (remember this blog post where it looks like someone went to town on my knees with a crow bar?) considering I still have a large bruise/welt on my left knee; I wish I was kidding.

L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow "Iced Latte" & "Endless Pearl": Swatches + Review!!

Up for review today is something that I feel gets a LOT of hype here in the beauty blogosphere/on beauty Youtubeland. I decided to pick up two of the shades since they were BOGO 50% at the time and I felt like these were the two shades that I would wear most often; I'm a sucker for nudes/golds... in eyeshadow and otherwise (mind out of the gutter people!! I'm an artist and figure drawing is one of my specialties, that's all!).

Take the jump to see how I felt about these shadows!!

NOTD: Dorothy's Ruby Slippers... Another Pinterest Inspired Creation!!

I slept through my class this morning (technically it's still going on now)... I couldn't help it though!! My alarm went off which prompted Galileo to snuggle up against me and purr like crazy, then when my second alarm went off I shut it off, gave Galileo one last pat (I thought), and he promptly snuggled into my nest/chest and became a purr machine.
Can you blame me for saying "eff it" and going back to sleep with my baby??? I just hope this doesn't become a trend in the future...

So, with a day off I hope to get some filming done for Youtube (it's been FOREVER; literally over a month I think) and, of course, update my blog :)
Take the jump to see how I did these awesomely subtly sparkly nails!!

9/24 OOTD

Alright everybody, brace yourself for one of the most boring OOTD's ever... well, it'll be boring if you're a fan of my babble anyways. Today has pooped me out to a point I didn't know a day of classes could poop me (is that the proper terminology? I'm probably going to regret typing that sentence in the morning... good thing I lost every ounce of shame I had after two years of organic chemistry).

Take the jump (if you can muster; I sure can't so bless your soul if you are capable) below if you want to see the details of my outfit!

Bring on the pink glitter... I'm feelin' GIRLY!!

Any time the words "I" and "girly" appear in the same sentence is a time for personal celebration; while I wear girly outfits some of the time, that doesn't mean that I'm necessarily feeling girly. 
But let me tell you: if I'm wearing pink glitter on my nails, you know that it wasn't without reasoning... it means I am feeling like a girl! Weiiiiiiird...

Take the jump if you want to know how to recreate this nail look :)

9/21 OOTD

I've got a fairly simplistic OOTD for you guys: weekend comfort style!!
I wasn't feeling 100% yesterday, but had plans that I really wanted to follow through with (and I'm glad I did!!) so take the jump below if you want to read and see more :)

9/20 OOTD

As much as I loved my outfit yesterday, it just felt way too weird to not be wearing any thrifted clothing. So today I threw on two of my favorite thrifted items and HUZZAH I felt like a super star!!

9/19 OOTD

I absolutely cannot believe that it's almost the end of September!! I had to check the date for this post and it made me a little queasy; where has the time gone? Then I remember I just moved halfway across the country on my own, started my Master's program, and am a proud new mamma of a crazy kitten... yup.
Makes sense why a month flew by so fast!

September 2012 Birchbox!

I don't know why I was so inclined to put an exclamation point at the end of the title since *SPOILER ALERT* this box was less than exciting.

NOTD: Bringing Pinterest to Life!

I have a board on Pinterest devoted solely to nail art; Yes, I am that girl.
But I can't help it, nail art is just so fun and a great way to express yourself! So I decided, to celebrate being able to say T.G.I.F. and hello to the weekend, to take one of my drool-worthy inspirations and make it real life.

OOTD 9/12

OOTD 9/11

First off, I just want to say that my heart goes out to anyone who lost a loved one ten years ago today; I couldn't even type the title of this post without feeling... well, for lack of a better word, off
I was young (only in sixth grade) when the planes hit the twin towers but I still remember where I was (home-ec) and the grief that the adults around me (who actually understood what was happening) were expressing. I know it's silly, but I really do wish that some day there will be a world where everybody gets along and treats each other with respect.

Anywhew, take the jump for actual post!

NOTD: O.P.I. Don't Pretzel My Buttons!

Yes, I take notes on my hand... I am that kid.

I know there are different teams on mannequin hands; either you love them or you hate them. I happen to be in the boat of: If they're done right, then I looooooove them. I just haven't been able to find a color that actually went with my skin tone... well, that was until this little gem came into my life.

9/5 OOTD

My second day of grad school was just about as much of a failure as morning number one.
Will I ever be coordinated, be it with my limbs or with my directional skills? It doesn't seem very hopeful at this point of my life.

Jump with me (or without, since my knees are pretty swollen still from yesterday's unfortunate falling-out-of-a-bus ordeal) to read and see more details!

OOTD: First Day of Grad School!

I can't believe this day finally got here, but it did and it felt really good to get back into the artist swing of things.
I wanted to keep it suuuuuper casual since... well, I hate being the kid that CLEARLY dressed up for the first day of school. So I went with really casual yet slightly quirky pieces which I was able to feel comfy in all day.

Take the jump to see the details, plus a hilariously idiotic story from my first day of grad school!

OOTD: Orientation Version!!

I feel like the absolute lamest blogger lately... even more so now that I used the word "lamest".

Jean Jacket - Thrifted
Leaf Print Blouse - Goodwill
Braided Belt - Urban Outfitters (Sale)
Burn Orange Skinnies - Forever21
Rosegold Watch - Fossil (Gift)
Beaded Bracelet - D.I.Y. (you can get a better look at it in this post if you'd like!)
Studded Black Flats - Thrifted

I just wanted to do a really quick and simple post showing you all what I wore to my orientation yesterday!! It was a really long day (especially with me getting lost... hopefully I'll figure out parking in Boston one of these days) but I had fun and met some great people that I'm excited to have in my program :) We're a diverse mix, from what I can tell, but that should just mean that we all have a lot to learn from each other; I'm excited to see everyone's artwork once the semester kicks off tomorrow!

Has school started for you yet?
Hopefully this school year is going to be another great one; gotta love new beginnings, right?

xoxo - Cassie
