He Said, She Said: #Talk Is Cheap


      Just some strange photos that I took with my computer after a photo shoot with MacClavey Photography recently. I typically do an "every day" type of make up look so it was especially fun to do something a bit more creative for a project! My friend Fanny said she liked my blue lipstick (which is actually eye shadow) so much that I should try it out on a regular basis, what do you think?


      Fanny also happened to draw my name for secret santa this past Christmas and I received this totally amazing phone attachment! It's fun to hear my phone ring (my ringtone is "Me, Myself, and I" by De La Soul) and pull this retro phone out of my handbag for a quick chat. People don't know what hit them.... or they think I am insane, either might be the case. 





      I've noticed that the galaxy and star prints have been in heavy rotation on many other blogs. I really love this peculiar trend but knew I wouldn't indulge myself by spending money on an item that I may not wear for years to come due to trendiness. However, my friend Katia let me have this dress (with rocketships about to take the air) from her enviable walk in closet! She bought it a couple of years ago while she was in high school and says that she wore it constantly, this leads me to believe that I may have this dress for a long time as well! Next time this dress goes out on the town with me I'd like to wear these orange shoes or this green bag for an extra pop of color!

Yours,
Nico

  2. I love that dress!! I love the galaxy stuff too (I wore space print stuff already 10 years ago and will wear even when the trend is over ;))^
    Love the blue lippy. I bought a blue lipstick once when I was younger and wore it sometimes, now I feel it wouldn't suit me anymore (my face is not so young any more so the blue might look too ghoulish ;))

  7. Heehee! Love the phone attachment. Also your hair is awesome. I like the galaxy print stuff, but it's always done on fabric I dislike. I stick to the more 'classic' tiedye instead.

  26. Hi Nico, I think the blue lips makes it look very arty/other worldly - but I'm not sure for every day! Hope you are having a good week.

  28. Fab photos! I've actually seen some shots of purple lipstick, lately...and, I'm serious contemplating diving right in. 2013 is the year I'm diving in--self-authoring my own life & exercising my self-empowerment muscles. I'm guessing I'll soon be sporting the purple--no doubt! ;)
