Glad to be back!

Well, Kristin is still out at Burning Man and I’m still recovering from being sick, but I’m so glad to be back on the blog!  It’s been nice to relax as a newly married old lady (heh), even if I have felt like crap, ha!  It feels even better to put my face on and feel like “me!”  I’ve also been experimenting with layering my necklaces.  I’m wearing 2 wax seal pendants from Plum and Posey and a hummingbird skull pendant from Skeletos; both sellers can be found on Etsy.

Goth Night Makeup Look – Red and Black 

Last night was our local goth-industrial dance night and I decided to really do something interesting with my makeup, since I have been wearing lighter fare for the daytime regularly (taupe shadows and mauve lips have been my thing lately).  I went all out last night and did a black and red theme I was really pleased with!
