MAKE UP TIPS 💋

Hi y'all, so I’ve been doing make up for years for proms and weddings and engagement photos and such and thought I would offer some tips because I love make up and maybe not everyone knows these! Obvi keep in mind everyone is different and these may not work for you…

- Try Nivea’s Sensitive Post Shave Balm for Men as a primer. A little goes a long way and rub it in until it gets tacky

- There is literally no reason to buy mascara from high end brands and I’m a high end whore. My favorite is the Clump Crusher water resistant

- If you can’t decide between two foundation colors, choose the one that’s lighter. Bronzer can fix that shit quick

- The “buy concealer that is 56 shades too light” trend needs to die. One or two shades is plentyyyyy you don’t wanna look like a reverse raccoon and flash photography only makes it worse

- BAKE your under eyes and if you’re hoeing tbh bake your entire face. Message me if you don’t know what baking is

- Two best foundations I’ve ever used are the Too Faced Born This Way and Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24hr

- Stop applying your make up with your hands ladies pls buy a beauty blender and get it damp

- Take the foundation off your lips once you’ve set it bc if you just put lip product over it it’ll bunch up in the corners of your mouth

- Sigma has great brushes and shed less than any of my high end brushes. I’d definitely recommend splurging and getting a full set of them

- Do not base your purchases off of sellout YouTubers that are getting paid to say everything they’re saying

- Buy a setting spray and spray your eyeshadow brush w it before applying shimmery eye shadows and spray your whole face with it when you’re done

- I see girls on here all the time saying not to wear falsies which I think is absolutely insane but my falsies advice is start with individuals and work up to strips. That’s what I did

- Exfoliate your face and use the Biore black head strips on your nose for smoother make up application

- Don’t leave your lower lash line bare. I see this so much and it’s super weird looking. Do a little eyeshadow and mascara at the least to complete the whole look

- Avoid matte lipstick/liquid lips unless you’re sure your lips are smooth hydrated and snatched otherwise they will look like a butthole in 15 minutes

- W/ eyebrows and make up: less is more girl. ESPECIALLY from a man’s perspective

- If you’re going to put a base shadow down before doing your eyeshadow look (which I’d recommend), avoid putting it anywhere you’ll put shimmer and instead fill that space with a cream eyeshadow or more primer to make that shimmer popppp
- Wash your beauty blender every time you use it or it will grow mold I promise

- Buxom’s lip glosses are the absolute best. They are so high quality, smell good, last FOREVER, and tingle on your lips like mint

- Clean your make up brushes as often as you can (I wish I did more than I do) not only because it’s hygienic but because they will apply SO MUCH BETTER

- If your eyebrows are always rubbing off, invest in a waterproofing liquid to put over them. NYX has a cheap one that really works

- Make sure to go over the line of your falsies with black eyeliner to hide the glue. I don’t care if the glue is “clear” or “black” it’s visible

- If you can’t find a contour color that’s cool toned enough try an eyeshadow!

- Put tons of highlight on your cupid’s bow it’s so cute in my opinion and always gets lots of compliments

- TAKE YOUR MAKE UP OFF EVERY NIGHT. DO NOT SAVE YOUR MAKE UP FOR THE NEXT DAY. Some girls will fight me on this but imo no make up is cuter than gross make up and it’s so bad for your skin

- If your eyes are always watering your shit off get some anti-allergy or anti-dryness (whichever you think you have) eye drops

- You can exfoliate your lips before lipstick application easily with honey and sugar. Do this before putting on foundation and such. If you’re a bougie bitch you can buy scrubs from places like Lush

- I’m convinced that Burts Bees is the only chapstick I’ve ever used that didn’t make me end up needing chapstick more than I did in the first place

- If you don’t have time to wash off your make up then just use a make up wipe! The Kirkland brand ones are my all time faves because they don’t sting my eyes or leave a residue on my face

- Stop over washing your face. It makes it produce more oil to compensate and it could be why you have acne

- You don’t need to pay to get your brows waxed/threaded if you just pluck the spare 2 or 3 brows that grow out of place each day. You’ll keep your shape, save money, and your brows will always look good

- If you don’t use eyeshadow primer please buy some and watch your entire eyeshadow collection transform. If you can’t afford it but have concealer that’s second best and still works well

I could go on forever and might make a part two but I’m tired now. Probably going to make a make up favorites list by product category soon!

Message me with any make up questions ever because I love blabbing about it! Spread the luv and happy face beating!! 💄

anonymous asked:

What are some of your favorite books currently?

Okay, so this question requires a bit of explanation of my reading habits. There are four types of books that I read: Dime Store Novels, of Literary Merit, Smart Books, and Reference Books.

Dime store novels: Books that are written to tell a story and just to tell a story. They’re not out to challenge the genre or blow our minds with inventive structure. Currently on my nightstand:

  • Patricia Briggs (Alpha and Omega series): Actually anything by Patricia Briggs. I love her. Everything she’s written is the sort of strong, female characters that I craved growing up.
  • Tamora Pierce (ALL): Same as above, she’s got wonderfully strong female characters and I love her.
  • Victoria Laurie (Ghost Hunter series): Simple, straight-forward series with exciting characters and premise! I read her books super fast, I’d say it takes me about two, three hours to read one of hers.
  • Mira Grant (Parasitology): She’s always so wonderful about building worlds through character/character relationships. Fun read, edge of the seat in a lot of ways, can’t wait to get to book two! Probably takes me 4-8 hours to read one book.

Of Literary Merit: Books that do defy genre, blow our minds, are probably going to win a handful of awards. Currently on my nightstand:

  • George Saunders (10th of December): One of my FAVE short story collections, it won something like…three? awards including like best short story collection of the year.
  • Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You): I actually don’t know if this has won an award but it was AMAZING NO SPOILERS GO READ IT
  • Flannery O’Connor (Wise Blood): I’m actually just starting this! I’ll keep you posted~
  • Jennifer Egan (A visit from the goon squad): One of my all time FAVES, got me into intertwining narrative, I love it.

Smart Books: Books that make me look very intelligent (or pretentious) when I go home for the holidays. They tend to be fairly controversial in subject matter and/or wildly misunderstood to be smart in the first place. Most of them I even like which is a bonus! My go to books:

  • Candide by Voltaire: Great book, hilarious and people think it’s not filled with A plus satire because Voltaire sounds very fancy.
  • The Dubliners by James Joyce: Short story collection of classic narrative, big themes of imminent death, man vs. nature, etc. 
  • The Lucifer Effect by Philip Zimbardo: About the Stanford Prison experiment. It’s okay, I don’t necessarily agree with the stance Dr. Zimbardo takes on his experiment/actions, but he doesn’t expect you too, I don’t think.

Reference Books: Books that I read over and over again because I WANT TO WRITE LIKE THAT:

  • American Gods by Neil Gaiman: What the fuck. What the fuck. The detail?????? The characters???? Shadow???? What the fuck.
  • Two or Three Things I Know for Sure by Dorothy Allison - I cry every time I read this book. It’s so raw and honest, it takes my breath away. Every time.
  • The Earth and Everything Underneath by K.M Ferebee: So gorgous, the imagery is incredible and it’s about witches. It’s actually a short story that you can read here (X) and I really recommend you check out Shimmer in general because it’s a great magazine.

As always, there’s a ton more that I enjoy, but these are in my rotation right now! Ask me again in a month and they’ll be all different.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Just wanna say I love, love your kabby gifs! They're all so pretty:) and I was wondering if you read any kabby fanfiction? I'm new to the fandom so I'm really hungry for some fics, but it's been hard for me to find good ones because the majority of them on ao3 are actually c***a or b******e fics (kabby as side pairing in them) so I'd really appreciate it if you could recommend me some good kabby fics! Thank you in advance!

Hey there! tysm for the compliment I don’t deserve it >3 and yes, I do read fanfic. I can’t say I’ve read every single one of them but definitely 80% of them. below are some of the fics that I like. please know that I’m not into au fics soooo if you like au you probably need to ask somebody else😂

 (since I don’t know every writer’s url here I’m gonna link their ao3 account page)

So Hot Topic has a Once Upon a Time shoe collection now.

I learned about it like 30 minutes ago. And 20 minutes ago this happened:

My 2 faves/my OTP + cute boots = total dissolution of Kat’s self control.

I kind of want Snow’s boots too, but that weird off-white is going to be almost impossible to work into my wardrobe. Plus 3 pairs all in one go would be hitting my bank account a little too hard right now. 

The Regina heels look killer, but #1, not much of a Regina fan (not that that stopped me from buying the red velvet dress from the clothing collection), and #2, I already have several pairs of flashy heels that I don’t have enough occasion to wear as it is.

singelisilverslippers  asked:

i just got back from rogue one and i cannot WAIT to hear your thoughts about it

I feel like the star wars franchise—which has consumed 72% of my waking life since this time last year—noticed me obsessing over their toys and went “oh, hey there! did you want to play with these other toys, which are like the toys you already enjoy playing with, but with more themes of personal redemption, complexities of political belief, and martyrdom? I’m not sure if that’s what you’re into, but—”

“these are mine now,” I whispered in the creepiest possible way, having stolen the toys while the franchise was talking. “thank you for giving these toys, which are mine now, and have in fact always been mine. you can go.”

………………which is to say I love everyone in this crazy rebellion

Aaaaand here we go again with my six most-listened to albums of the last couple of days. As usual all titles are linked to youtube song examples. Enjoy (or not ;) )!

MANOWAR - Battle Hymns (heavy metal)
Yes, there are better ManOwaR albums (at least imo) but the last days I had a knack for their debut. Songs like the unbelievably brilliant title track, as well as “Manowar” and “Dark Avenger” are just classics for a damn reason!

GBH (Charged GHB) - Midnight Madess and Beyond (punk-metal or metalpunk or whatever)
Their third album with an even more metallic edge to it. Tight and energetic, often-overlooked and a total blast.

STAN BUSH - Call To Action (AOR/Hard Rock)
Though I don’t like the ‘97 remix of the song “The Touch” on this as much as the original, this collection of Stan’s more uprising tracks always gets me. And with “Dare” (also from the TF soundtrack) one of my all-time fave songs it always gets me.

BORKNAGAR - Borknagar (blackened pagan/folk metal)
One of my personal black metal classics. Quite a big way apart from what they sound like nowadays, this is arcahic, wild yet melodic black metal with great folk dots here and there acompanied by ferocious vocals and partly clean choirs. Outstanding!

IRONSWORD - Ironsword (heavy metal)
With their rough yet epic sounding heavy metal, blending early Maiden, early Manowar, Manilla Road etc. they def. deserve more attention. Though my fave album of theirs is “Overlords…”, this debut always gets it’s playing time.

SODOM - get what you serve (thrash metal punk)
While many may label “Agent Orange” or others of their early albums as Sodom’s best, to me this one takes the cake. Raw, fast and with a distinct punky edge as well as more Motörhead infleunces than on any other of their albums.

Remix Reveals

Crazy week means I’m just getting around to posting about it but yay I’m so thrilled with Remix again this year (my first participating in Main)!!! 

Of Course You Know (This Means War) Remix was written by the amazing @kernezelda for me in the Main Collection, a wonderful fic based on my little story about Erik and Logan as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who accidentally find out they’re dating the same guy (guess who lol)! Zelda turned it into 6k of incredibly sexy, polyamorous and powered fun, and told the whole thing from Charles’ delightfully delicious POV!

The lovely and talented still_lycoris wrote Then, Again for the Madness Collection, based on one of my own personal favorites -  Once, Before, which is a relatively obscure fic (told in 2nd POV!) about Charles’ very illicit affair with his stepfather Kurt. This amazing story is all told from Cain’s perspective and I CAN NOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE IT. It excels at the ‘slightly off’ vibe I was trying to portray with my version of the story, and hits all the right (or wrong lol) notes of their completely messed up relationships!

And last but not least the amazing and brilliant @awfullythick wrote No Pushing (Times Six Remix), based on a cracky post-XMA/Logan au ficlet of mine that has Logan suddenly finding out he’s a father to a one year old Laura. The fact that it’s XAVIERINE blows me away already, but then the story had to go and include so much MORE amazing stuff too - Charles+Raven sibling banter, baby Laura and all her adorable little mutant friends, ‘Danger Room’ lite as a nursery, and Logan falling reluctantly in love with his daughter with Charles’ wholehearted support. 1000% FLUFFY FEELS guaranteed to melt your heart!!!


As for my own Remix fics…I wrote one for the Main Collection and two for Madness this year :D

It’s Magic! was written for the lovely @dedkake in the Main Collection, based on their Cherik fic A Gift which I absolutely adored. I loved the urban fantasy, ‘mages in a modern world’ premise so much that I knew I had to try and remix it, which is why we have 2.5k of ridiculous ‘Mages in Space!’ crack that includes mistaken identities and inter-galaxy travel. Also, naked Charles! :D

Nowhere to Run is based on one of my all time fandom faves (and definite fem!Charles favorite) written by the superb a_q, the totally awesome Run, Lottie! The original fic ends after an in-heat Lottie arrives at the safe room - after several ‘run-ins’ with alphas along the way - only to find that she’s not alone! I’ve always wanted to know how things go down between Lottie and Erik, so I decided to write my version of what happens next! (Spoiler: There’s sex lol.)

Finally, I wrote Steal A Kiss And You’ll Break Your Heart for my darling interweb spouse @lachatblanche, a missing scene that is referenced but not seen in her gorgeously written and beautifully angsty fic Keep My Heart Slow. Lach did such an incredible job infusing Charles’ and Erik’s relationship with such complicated emotion…I found that I couldn’t help but want a tiny glimpse of exactly what happened ‘that night’ (when Erik proposed and Charles said no). :D :D :D

And there you have it! Remix is my favorite fandom challenge, and thanks again to the mods for all your hard work!

anonymous asked:

Can you recommend me some books or authors?

I do not know if my taste suits yours but sure of course I can 

For a quick reading
Horacio Quiroga Stories (Stories of love, madness and death and The Beheaded Chicken and Other Stories are good compilation but you can pick The Chair of Pain too)
Robert Louis Stevenson if you like (Treasure Island, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Kidnapped, The Suicide club, he has a lot of good writings)
Milan Kundera - writes novels but all of them are short novels (The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Ignorance)
García Marquez wrote good short stories too (there’s this book called Strange Pilgrims with 12 stories I think, very good if you want to start if you want a short novel there’s this one called Chronicle of a Death Foretold - i did start with this one and it was v good. or The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother a longer one could be Of love and others demons…tbh I did read everything from him haha)
Murakami’s books are good for a quick read too (Kafka on the Shore, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Sputnik Sweetheart, etc I’m prettu sure you’ve seem him everywhere so is up to you to search)
Edgar Allan Poe stories are a must so I don’t think I should rec them

Now

Friedrich Nietzsche (I would rec read anything from him that catch your eyes but a must would be Human all too Human and Thus Spoke Zarathustra)
Albert Camus (The Stranger, The Plague, The fall and The Myth of Sisyphus)
Jean Paul Sarte (I always rec The Wall for a first reading is easy to read, Nausea is my fav one ofc but No exit is good as well, Being and Nothingness is p good -tho is a essay-)
Hermann Hesse A MUST it will always be Steppenwolf is one of my all time fave novels, then there’s Demian and Siddartha, Strange news from another star and ….I’m still wanna read Gertrude but I can’t find the book)
George Orwell 1984 / Animal Farm. // Osamu Dazai  The Setting Sun and No longer Human are the one my friend rec me and I loved them (shout-out @maki–ta).  // Aldoux Huxley -his collected short stories / Brave new world
Marcel Proust In Search of the lost times // Ray Bradbury The Martian Chronicles, The Illustrated Man and Farenheit 451

Jules Verne, Simone de Beauvoir, Bukowski, Humerto Eco, Jorge Luis Borges, Franz Kafka, shut me the fuck up….

*Special Mentions for Aztec by Gary Jennings and Mila 18 by Leon Uris
*Currently obssesed with Emil Cioran.

ps: i would like to write way more but I would never finish, if you’re searching for some kind of writing specifically just tell me 

Hi everyone! Decided to do a post just to link some of my favourite playlists on Spotify and also encourage you to follow me so we can both find some cool music, because as you may (or probably not) know, I adore music and I could not live without it! 

You can find some of the playlist I’m gonna link down below on my blog on the bottom left corner so you can listen to them from there or just click the links and follow them on the Spotify app on your laptop/phone!


· my favourite playlists ·


Rainy Days includes songs such as “Holocene” by Bon Iver or “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood. I update this playlist pretty much all the time adding some new songs I think are perfect to listen to on those rainy days.


“Warm” is my favourite playlist for sure! I loved it so much that I decided to create a second one inspired by it! This are the playlist I always listen to while I’m on Tumblr, doing homework, etc. It is a really chill playlist and I’m sure you are all going to love it! You can enjoy follow them both and enjoy :)


You might be thinking, what? But I had to include this playlist because in my opinion the CW televison series “The 100″ has one of the best soundtracks and some of the songs from the show have become all time faves of mine, such as “We Come Running” by Youngblood Hawke or “Home II” by Dotan.


I guess the title is pretty much explanatory itself! Autumn is just around the corner, so this playlists collects some of my favourite “autumnal vibes” songs such as “Youth” by Daughter and “Promise” by Ben Howard. It is one of my favourite ones as well and I update it every single day!


This playlist, shorter than all the other ones, includes all of the songs mentioned in Kenna’s Youtube video “ Autumn Playlist // pt. 1”. It includes songs such as “Autumn Leaves” by Ed Sheeran and “Something wild” by Lindsey Stirling, the song from the movie “Pete’s Dragon”, I have to admit I have listened to this song at least 100 times and it is my current favourite song!


This one is not a playlist made by me but it’s Spotify’s. It’s description is: “darker days, cooler temperatures, rain and yellowed leaves. Embrace the mood of the season with harmonious and comforting songs” and I couldn’t agree anymore! You’ll find songs such as “Let It All Go” by Birdy and RHODES and “Little Lover” by BROADHURST.


This playlist isn’t mine either but Orion’s, you may know her from her tumblr @sskeptical or Yotube channel @ Orion Vanessa Carloto. She is one of my favourite people on earth and of course, her taste in music is on point! Some of the songs featured in the playlist are “Barcelona” by George Ezra or “WArm Foothills” by alt-J


  • SUNBEAMSJESS inspired by Jessie from the Youtube channel “sunbeamsjess”

This has to be one of my favourite ones as well and it’s pretty similar to the playlist “Warm”. Most of the songs are songs featured on Jess’ vlogs or just songs that have the same vibe and remind me of her such as “Warm” by SG Lewis or “Alive” by Khai, which have featured many of her videos.

If you don’t know her, check her out on Youtube @sunbeamsjess and I’m sure you will love her (although probably not as much as I do, I don’t think that’s even possible!)


I’ve combined this two together because they have a similar style of music. They are pretty different than the rest of the playlists and a lot more “pop and well know music” but as the name of the playlist suggests, the songs on both playlists are huge songs that are quite old (oldie but goldie, for sure) and I’m sure you have listened to most of them, at least a couple of years back. They include songs such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry” by Fergie or “You’re Beautiful” by James Blunt


FOLLOW ME ON SPOTIFY HERE - @LIAROD_  so you don’t miss any of my playlists!

· · · · · feel free to like/reblog this post, I spent a lot of hours on it so it would mean a lot! By following the playlist on Spotify they will be added on to your Playlists folder so you can always listen to them! + The text won’t show up on your blog, so please reblog! Thank you so much · · · · ·

Hey do you have any soul-mate fanfics for olicity? I've read yours God knows how many times, I'm just on a soul-mate binge at the moment, I need all the soul-mate fics :')

Thank you, anon! I’m finally getting around to the rec questions. I’m assuming you’ve read both my soulmate stories - Free Fall and Of Souls and Mates.

(I’m sure I’m missing some but these are all I can remember at the moment).


Soulmate AU:

Darling heart, I loved you from the start (but you never know what a fool I’ve been) by @sarcasticfina

The first soulmate fic I read. Then I gobbled up all her other works and was sucked into the vortex that is Olicity fanfiction. Must read.

Branded With Your Mark (I wear it proudly on my chest above my heart) by @ohmypreciousgirl

The second soulmate fic I read, and then again, consumed all the works she’s written. If you haven’t read Naty’s works, you need to. Amazing and so fascinating.

Soul Shine by @dust2dust34

Everything Bre writes is pure gold. This particular fic though surpasses that. The thought is unique and the writing absolutely fantastic. Particularly a scene in the rain. Read it.

Sadly this story has been abandoned but it was a really great read, with Bratva and soulmate premised meshing together beautifully.

Our love will never fade away (I’ll bear your mark on my skin for eternity) by @charlie-leau

I love this woman almost as much as I love this story. The concept is fresh yet the same soulmate tug we love, and the writing is absolutely beautiful. Read it.

These are some of my all time fave soulmate fics. The idea is so original and heart wrenching and Holly writes it so beautifully, using the mirror both literally and metaphorically. Read her.

First off, I want to say how virtually impossible it was for me to choose only five stories to recommend. We are so lucky to have such outstanding writers in this fandom. Aside from the five recs for this Author’s Spotlight, I will be posting a list of other stories I love in the near future on my Tumblr: @fearlesslysgleefics

X-Men Remix Reveals!!!

In the main collection, It’s Not a Wake-Up Call (the Facetime Remix), the super hot and :DDDDD remix of my Erik/Moira fic First the Ring (And Then You Wake Up), was written by nextraordinaire!

In the Madness collection, Unexpected (Visitors, Remix Of), the gut-wrenching remix of my zombie apocalypse AU Visitors, was written by Fullmetalcarer!

I received a last minute remix in the Madness collection late last night, in addition to the above two which I recced here earlier last week: Kiss by the Window [Remix of Replay (Timeline Series)] by Thacmis, an art + drabble remix of my fic Replay. It is incredibly beautiful and I should probably just keep it open in a tab so I stop adding to the hit count every time I go to look at it again. It’s just perfect, I love it so so so much. <3333

~~~~

Now for the things I wrote! I had two in the main collection:

To Breathe Again (Impossibilities Remix), a remix of ikeracity’s fic To Breathe Again. This was my assignment. The original fic is a post-XMFC fic about Erik going home to Charles, written in the second person. It’s a beautiful fic, and I had no intention whatsoever of trying to remix it when I got my assignment. But my other attempt at writing a remix wasn’t working, and I was flipping through the rest of their fics, and then was like “but what if it was a post-X3/pre-DoFP fic instead?” Second person POV is pretty much something you either love or hate; I’ve always adored it, and had been wanting to try my hand at it for years, and so this was incredibly fun to write. I was pretty nervous when I started it, but I think the end result is the best thing I’ve written in a while.

A Minor Mystery (Alone No More Remix), a remix of afrocurl’s A Minor Mystery. This was my pinch hit. The original is a fic where Erik stays and becomes pregnant with Charles’ telepathic fetus (probably the obvious choice for me to remix, since a. I love mpregnant Erik soooo much, and b. years ago, I wrote a nearly 50k fic that involved a very similar conceit); I decided it would be fun to set it after DoFP, when a newly-freed Erik is on the run.

I also had two in the Madness collection:

Magda (Fear and Love Remix) is a remix of professor’s awesome Erik/Magda, Moira/Magda, Charles/Erik ficlet Magda, in which Magda is a part of XMFC and fixes all the things. I have always adored that ficlet and have wanted to get my feelings all over it ever since discovering that remixes were a thing. In fact, I’ve been trying to remix it in one way or the other for 3-4 years now. It’s been a few different things, and now that it’s posted it’s one of the ones I’m so nervous about that I won’t be able to look at it objectively to discover if I actually think the end result hangs together for probably another six months…but even if it doesn’t I adore it because it really is just all my FEELINGS about things. XD

No Pushing (Times Six Remix) is a remix of Gerec’s Charles/Logan ficlet with baby Laura coming to live with Charles/Logan in a much happier timeline than what we got in Logan. I knew I wanted to remix Gerec, since she correctly guessed both of my fics in the main collection. I also knew I wanted to remix one of her Charles/Logan things if at all possible, since lord knows I love it when people write for my fave rarepair. I chose this ficlet because I thought it would be fun to write a Serious Story about how terrible it would be if toddlers had mutations + about Logan’s complicated feelings about being a clone dad and not wanting Laura to be like him (because @cygnaut is often explaining comics! Logan and Laura to me, so they are on my mind a lot). Spoiler: It did not end up being a Serious Story. It wanted to be majority lighthearted fluff from the moment I started writing it, and, since I figured Gerec would be fine with that + apparently STILL have a lot of feelings about how Charles, Logan and Laura deserve to be happy, I decided to go where it took me.

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2011 Collection 

Galliano’s salute to René Gruau, the illustrator whose work for Christian Dior in the forties and fifties created the house’s most iconic imagery, felt like it had been a long time coming, not just because of the designer’s own early aspirations, but because it gave him another opportunity to indulge his passion for an era when couture was truly haute.

I wish each and everyone of you a wonderful day! ❤️❤️❤️
Unfortunately, I have to spend my weekend with 12-hour-shifts at work, so I don’t think I’ll have much time to draw… I try to finish the Nevada sketch and maybe another Barba, but I can’t promise anything.
Maybe you enjoy the little view on my Esparza collection here in the meantime.
WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVE??

PS: Thanks to all of you who already sent me finished drawings for my little Barba contest.
You still have 3 days left till August 15. 😉
