I decided to post my makeup that I used when I went to see Les Mis the other day. Oh my goodness, it was absolutely stellar. Eponine and Fantine were simply incredible. Eponine was gorgeous! She was black, and one of the most beautiful women I have seen. I wish I could be ebony. I HIGHLY recommend everyone go to see it. It's performed at the Sergstrom Event Center...I think :p

I do my pencil eyeliner first, and then I put my liquid over it, for a cleaner line. I love the cat-eye look. Some girls at my school think its slutty (like seriously, what the actual fuck), but I think it's kind of classy.
Complete eyes. I use these brushes from Maybelline to shade and blend the different Shades of Grey :p
Bushy caterpillar eyebrows...I know, I know.
I use the liquid first. I just use my fingers, I don't really care about a brush for that. Then a sheer powder. I am in love with this blush I got from Sephora form my 8th grade Washington d.C Trip! It's lasted me for so long! More than 2 years. The Trublends Minerals is just really light, it's just warm sparkles that aren't too overpowering, so i brush it all over my cheeks, chin, and forehead.
My brother tells me I have a really creepy smile. I'm kind of self conscious about it.
Thank you for reading this post!(: What is your favorite makeup, or type of makeup?
I adore seashells. I think they are so delicate and beautiful. I have quite a collection, and I'm pretty damn proud of it :p I have a couple of seashell chandeliers, and so I wanted to show you guys a little bit of my collection(:
Yuki nibbling on the shells(:
I have no clue what this one is, but it's beautiful
Again with Yuki(:
All the Conches together
These are my baby shells. I simply adore the big shell that I use as a bowl to hold my babies. It is simply gorgeous, what with all of the shining colors,
the Cerulean Blues, the Emerald Greens, and the Rich Browns
A closeup of the teeny tiny shells. I like admiring all of the stripes and holes and ridges in each one. They are all so different, none are the same.
A little of my coral collection. Coral is my absolute favorite shell. Well, it's not really a shell...but that is an irrelevant fact :p
Medium piece of coral, and baby bits to the side of it
Other bits and pieces of my coral collection. I have most of it in a pretty display in my room, but I want to show that off later when I redecorate the rest of my room.
So that was some of my seashell collection!(: I hope you guys liked it, comment below if you like seashell-ing, and tell me what your favorite type is!
When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea
And the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds
And imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is
So I made the Chocolate and Peanut Butter Torte thing, from this website. I don't like cream cheese, so I didn't like it myself): After all my hard work, too! That's okay, it just means I'm picky. Everybody else in the house loved it! It was gone in one day(: I guess that means I'm not a total failure, right?
I used a whole freaking box of oreos
I lick everything in between the steps, do you?(: It's my favorite part.
The whip cream was heavenly. I'm going to make some just so I can eat it by itself :3 Omnomnom

I was surfing around looking for dessert recipes to make, (while I am incapacitated from an MCL/meniscus tear) and I cam across this stellar food blog. It's called the Angieriver Show, and every single recipe she has on there look delicious, complete with the nice pictures she takes of the food.
I wanted something with Chocolate and peanut buttery goodness, so when I clicked on this recipe,
