Just Life.

Hello there!

It has been a very long time since we’ve seen each other.  You look fantastic!  This is not a post announcing the return of Glamification, sadly.  I honestly don’t know if this will make a valiant return or not, but who knows what the future has in store?   However there is good news!  I saved a whole lot of money on my car insurance by switching to-!  I’ll spare you the overplayed joke.

Okay.  Here’s what this post is really about.  In May, Morgaine and I will graduate from college.  It’s very exciting!  We’re both overjoyed.  That’s the main reason why posting has been in a limbo.  We’re working hard to finish school.  That isn’t all that I wanted to share!  This last part is happy news regarding our relationship and I’m just so ecstatic about it that I’m telling EVERYONE.

I gave Morgaine a promise ring.  See it after the break.

Sam Edelman and American Eagle have teamed up for this awesome summery collaboration. These decided warm-weather shoes are a nice reminder that the cold weather will end eventually! And, the best part is, you don’t even have to wait until summer to buy them! The entire collection is already available on American Eagle’s website.

How To Take Care of Your Makeup Brushes 
I’ll be the first to admit that I am very new to makeup brushes. I just recently bought myself a couple new ones and am learning how to use them. So, I am also learning how to clean my brushes. At first, I thought I was going to need some really expensive, specialty brush cleaner or something. Turns out, all I need is a bit of baby shampoo!
