Long time, no blog!

So sorry for my absence! I've been buying loads, but not sharing anything. How greedy of me!

I've been rediscovering my style roots in a whole new light. I finally saw Whip It!, a roller-derby movie, and it reminded me of my more punk-inspired days. I've been really missing it lately, but I've been more drawn to the psychobilly/pin-up side of it than the *quite embarrassing* emo/scene image I've done in the past. It's much more girly, a whole lot sexier, but is still classy and fun.

Red lips, black winged liner, and victory rolls galore--here I come!

This discovery could not be more well-timed. I've realized that my makeup purchases have completely overwhelmed my spending-money, leaving me with very, very little new fashionable choices in my wardrobe. Now that summer's half-over for a college kid like me, it's time to start thinking of how this year will be defined for me, and that starts with a new outlook. I'm a recent horror movie fanatic, and I've found a style that I feel so comfortable in.

Hello, new Erin!

On the makeup/beauty side of things, I've really gone wild over MAC's In The Groove collection. I got a hold of the ever-coveted Stereo Rose, but I think the true under-appreciated beauty comes from By Candlelight MSF. It gives me the *perfect* glow-y cheeks and looks especially lovely over Pink Swoon or Hipness blush (both by MAC). I've also been introduced to my new loves, MAC's Cremesheen glasses. I know I'm late to the party, but these things are so gorgeous! Creamy, smooth, non-sticky and non-frosty, these beauties are more-than-welcome additions to my makeup arsenal. I picked up the LE Going Casual from the ITG collection, which is a mid-tone lilac-pink that gives my pigmented lips a slightly-cool pink look that is absolutely divine. I just recently got Partial to Pink from the permanent line, which is a light yellow-pink that gives a warmer, yet still light and girly, effect than Going Casual. I'm a Cremesheen glass addict!

In other beauty news, I've fallen head-over-heels for Benefit's Crescent Row fragrances. I have "My Place or Yours Gina," a sexy nighttime scent that makes my inner vixen squirm in delight, as well as one new member of the block, "Garden of Good and Eva," a fresh-cut-grass-and-lush-garden scent that is so crisp and light. I feel like I could fly over the trees when I wear it, I'm feeling that free-spirited! Definitely a daytime staple for me. Plus, Benefit's packaging is SO adorable! Cocktail-mixer containers for the perfume (how vintage-chic!) which sits in a box that represents the girl's room on the Row.
