Hey beauties! Thank you all so much for the nice comments on my last post and also the messages you've sent me since I talked about this rough period in my life. As I mentioned in that post, I'm better every day, it's just a slow process. I'm lucky to have the most amazing husband, family and friends who are helping me get through with this. And you guys are making me glad that I made the decision to keep blogging, so thank you...from the bottom of my heart.

Yesterday I finally woke up feeling like I wanted to do my makeup and I actually managed to do it. I did one of my old time fave looks with gray lids, blue lower lid and bright magenta lipstick a la MAC Rebel. Oh, and do you guys remember MAC Amorous dazzle glass cream from like 3 years ago? I hadn't worn it since then I think! Boy that is a gorgeous deep red. Very sticky texture but the colour is too beautiful to ignore. Gotta wear it more often.

Oh btw, I don't know if you can see in pics, but I got some subtle highlights in my hair now. I don't like drastic changes to my hair but I was bored with my current shade and also thought I looked a bit pale with my darker hair so the highlights are a welcome change for me. What do you think?

Hope you guys like this look :)
