a positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

It seems that things never quite go as planned. And even when you think your backup plan is figured out...something happens to shake things up once again.

I suppose it is this kind of unpredictability that makes life what it is. As someone who likes things meticulously planned out, I often struggle with nights like this! Everything turned out well, though - I learned how to play pool...and realized I am quite terrible at it! Ah well, practice makes perfect.

For my makeup look last night, I went with slightly dramatic eyes in shades of deep purples, a plum coloured blush, and a nude lip.



What do you think of this makeup look? And do you like things planned in advance or put together last minute?

  15. Dramatic makeup is my favorite. I think that more intense eye makeup looks great on people with bigger, darker eyes.
