Night at the Symphony

A night at the Boston Symphony Orchestra! The decadence. The class. The eagerness. The outfits. 
Four amazing pieces by Weber, Beethoven, Strauss & Harbison. Everyone was dressed to the nines. It was like a formal evening out and I loved it. I'd wear a gown if I could! Regardless, it was beautiful to be there and the pieces were as well. I quickly took some self portraits, once again, of my chic little outfit for the symphony.

Petit cadeau pour moi

 My mother wears Mademoiselle. I love it and it mostly because it reminds me of her. The only reason I'm posting it is because I have the Eau de Toilette aka the cheaper version and I splurged and got the Eau de Parfum. Not the biggest deal in the world and I should be saving my money, but I am happy and rather fortunate to to be able to purchase this lovely fragrance. It's a very popular fragrance and maybe even a little cliche, but it's what I'm into at the moment. I never got into wearing fragrance until my mid twenties. Have always loved Michael Kors (it's my go to), J'adore, Marc Jacobs and Womanity by Theirry Mugler. I decided I'm giving up high end mascaras for the meantime as a sort of trade off. Seems silly but it's my way of compensating for making a high priced purchase on an item that evaporates.

Outfit post next time, promise

Every time I want to post, I want it to be a fantastic, inspired outfit. One where I'm wearing the highest of heels, the perfect amount of accessories and the setting is spectacular. Yes, an outfit post excites me and well, I am an artist when it comes to fashion/style. I am my own canvas and my closet is my palette. That all being said, I'm writing about makeup. Yup. My face is my canvas as well. I don't have a collection to brag about. I purchased a lot from MAC awhile back and has held me over ever since. With the exceptions of mascara and the like. It can be hard to be creative in that department when you're in a rush or even too tired, but I've found something that might help! It can easily be transformed into something very clean and refined. It displays makeup well and even if it's not your cup of tea to put makeup on display, this can be used for lots of other stuff! I also found out how to depot a MAC eyeshadow. Might seem odd, but if you're close to being done with an eyeshadow you may as well depot it. I did this solely so I could bring my six empty containers to MAC! I love that they recycle them and give you a free product for doing so. I'm a recycle nut so this is the best of both worlds!
