and nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow, so don't let go, now we've come this far.

Last night was one of those rare evenings where everything felt right in the world. I headed downtown to see Duran Duran in concert. Alone. When I bought the tickets, no one I knew wanted to go with me. Instead of missing out on seeing them AGAIN, I just went for it and bought a single ticket. Before the show, and after the opening act, I just read a book and waited. It was kind of lovely. And then I saw Duran Duran perform live. After watching the concert DVD endlessly, I finally was seeing Simon Le Bon IN REAL LIFE. It was such a thrilling experience.

The concert itself was fantastic. The set list was great, and Duran Duran put on one heck of a show. But what I loved most about the evening, was the fact that I let go. Instead of worrying about what other people thought, I just let myself get carried away by the music. It felt like being on top of the world. Even thinking of now, I can't help but smile to myself.

Anyway! Here is what I wore to the concert last night!

Also, Miss L posted a cute this or that tag on her blog recently! I thought it was fun, so here are my answers! I tag anyone who wants to do it!

Blush or Bronzer? A difficult choice, because I love both, but I am going to say blush! I love love love blush!
Lipgloss or Lipstick? Lipstick - I am definitely a lipstick girl!
Eyeliner or Mascara? Eyeliner! I am an eyeliner addict!
Foundation or Concealer? Foundation, for sure.
Neutral or Coloured Eyeshadow? I love both, but I am going to say neutral!
Pressed or Loose Eyeshadow? Pressed!
Brushes or Sponges? Brushes, definitely!

Long or Short? Mid-length, preferably!
Acrylic or Natural? I actually love the look of acrylic nails, but I can't have them for work!
Brights or Darks? I love either, but probably dark colours!

Perfume or Body Splash? Perfume. I have so many different perfumes. I really love the way a fragrance can pull an outfit together.
Lotion or Body Butter? Lotion.
Body Wash or Soap? Body Wash

Jeans or Sweat Pants? In public? Jeans. At home? Sweats!
Long Sleeve or Short? Short sleeved.
Dresses or Skirts? Dresses!

Scarves or Hats? Scarves
Studs or Dangly Earrings? Dangly earrings
Cowboy Boots or Riding Boots? Cowboy boots! I am constantly looking for just the right pair!
Jacket or Hoodie? Hoodie - so comfy!

Curly or Straight? Hmm this is a toss up. I usually go through phases where I prefer one more than the other. At the moment, probably curly.
Bun or Ponytail? Bun, for sure!
Bobby Pins or Butterfly Clips? Bobby Pins....I am always leaving them everywhere!
Hair Spray or Gel? Hair Spray
Long or Short? Long
Light or Dark? Dark.
Side-swept Bangs or Full Bangs? Side-swept
Up or Down? Again, this really depends on what hair phase I'm in at the moment!
