How To. {Almost} No Make-Up.

Fabulously Flawed.

Minimal Make-Up.
{How To Below.}
This is my make-up free make-up face. Oxymoronic? It should be. I'm still wearing make-up, but I'm so accustomed to {& interested in} wearing lots of make-up,  that it feels like I'm wearing 0 make-up. Why the sudden rebellion? Blame it on allergies. Morning, noon, & night I crave that cramming of fist into my eyeball. The swipe of tissue in and around my nostrils. The thirst for water upon my face. So, let's face it.

Internal Monologue. As & Fs.

Successes of the Day.
Failures of the Day.

Wet 'n' Wild Spoiled
Plastic Flamingo with Seche Vite.
Let's start with the fails.


I zombied-out at work all day with a migraine-induced prescription medicine hang-over by wearing Ray Bans, intermittently resting my head on my desk for prolonged periods of time, and wearing a skunk face between 8AM & 4:30PM prompt. ...

I trimmed my nails in my bed.

Commentary. BULLY. Stand for The Silent.

Take a Stand.
(From Google Images.)
You're screaming. For your life. Except that your mouth is closed, & your voice, silent. The only noise you hear exerts itself from the mouth that speaks next to you, or in front of you, or behind you. Both. Everything you know--your logic, emotion, understanding, heart--implodes. Noxious gas. Life-threatening fumes. Nothing makes sense & everything tears. Rips. Destroys. Severs. Ravages. You're a carcass. Your humanity, 0. You don't matter. Nothing you say or do. Your safety. Your breath. The air you breathe. You. Do. Not. Matter.

Yahoo-w Is This News? There's No Writing ... or Talking. It's Taken from "Stupid Videos."

There's some writing.

My version of
High Speed Hammock-ing.
Comprised 50% of rhetorical questions--wherein they ask 2--which means the entire "news article" is 4 sentences long. That's not half-bad in comparison to those stories that forget to end. I think the best part of this "news article" is that it leaves you with nothing. You're just completely mesmerized, maybe laughing. But, really, it leaves you nothing.

Shop Local. Thrift & Vintage at Blessed Next-to-New Sale.

This Sale is Godly.

And, according to my Mama + one of the volunteers, it has been Godly for about 50 years. While Momsly's been coming to this Next to New Sale for 30 years, this year marks my 2nd. And already, I'm a believer. For life. Maybe even for afterlife. Only God knows. All I know is that this sale of wheres & whats & clothes & shoes & books & bobs is good. Next-to-God-Good.

Yahoo-w Is This News?? Bey's Allowed to be Diva.

(Google Images.)
Here it is. The first Yahoo News Commentary BarbaraEllen post. What better way to commence than with a ridiculously non-news story about our fav (non) Single Lady: Beyonce. The linked story, written by The Daily Caller and posted onto Yahoo News, dishes various diva-don'ts demanded by Beyonce in order to satiate our culture's celeb-obsessed thirst.
