I'm on the hunt for a camera strap and case similar to these!

black eyeliner


Somehow, after about 14 or so years, I still am terrible at applying eyeliner, so this seems like a really interesting solution. They are sort of eyeliner "decals" that stick on by Dior. I would jump at the chance to give these a try, but the $59 price tag is a little out of my budget.

cutie camera bag


So, I got a new DSLR months ago, and I still haven't used it much. The problem is that I don't have a good safe way of carrying it around with me so I never seem to have it when I wish I did and I miss out on a lot of great photo-taking opportunities. My plan was to get some type of holster style, maybe neoprene case that was fairly snug to the camera that would allow me to keep it in my regular bags and purses, but all the ones I've come across are either way too big or way to expensive. Then today I came across this super cute tutorial via craftgawker and it's such a good idea! I had considered the idea of making my own camera "skin" but it just didn't seem worth it. Mimicking the interior of my current functional but ugly camera bag will work much better, and I can section off the camera area from a purse area and let it work for both. Now I just need to get myself to the fabric or craft store to get some foam!

rx sunglasses!


I just ordered these as sunglasses from bonlook, I hope they look good! It sounds like they have an awesome return policy considering that they are prescription though. I'm really hoping to have them in time for my trip to Trinity and the houseboat adventure on Lake Shasta we have planned in August!

cheeseburgers for dessert

yum! I used yellow starburst that I flattened with a rolling pin for the "cheese"- they were better just as regular hamburgers I think, but much cuter as cheeseburgers.

whew!

Taking a summer school class has kept me a lot busier than I thought it would! And I started a new job yesterday so I'll probably continue to be pretty busy, but I am trying to make a point of keeping up on this blog! Today is party bus day for a friend's birthday, which means I need to get to work attempting to make the cheeseburger macaroons I mentioned earlier! At least I found this much easier cheeseburger cookie "recipe" today, so I have a backup if things don't work out!

French Macarons, take 1


I took my first attempt at making French Macarons last night. I want to make these cheeseburger macarons for a friend's birthday at the end of the month, and after reading how difficult macarons are to make, I thought I ought to take a test run. Overall, it went so-so. About a third of them turned out pretty well, but the other 2/3 cracked horribly. I realized about half way through that I was forgetting to turn down the oven, so I think that was the problem. And, considering I don't have a food processor I'm really happy with the results. So, I'll take another test run in a few days, and then I'll start playing around with fillings (I just used jam this time) and flavorings. I think if I can get these figured out there are endless possibilities for flavor and filling combos that will keep me making over and over. And they're just so dang adorable!

get the look, Zooey Deschanel

Okay, I've been playing with Polyvore! I just entered a "get the celebrity look for under $500" contest, I think I did a pretty good job! Plus, I have pretty similar items in my own closet, so maybe I'll get the look in real life too!

polyvore

Okay, here is my first attempt at using Polyvore on here, let's see if this works. Here is an outfit I wore a week or so ago, including my favorite sweater from Knitted Dove, and the cutie Stella & Dot On The Mark necklace.
