FOTD: Kate’s Folie (12/09/11)

FINALLY got around to wearing the dark purple Kate lippie Robyn sent me. 🙂 (I’m quite a bit backed up on posting FOTDs and swatches – which is fortunate, as I’ve been sick and a bit stressed lately, and it’s playing merry hell with my chin. I don’t know if it’s a small breakout, or cold sores (heaven forbid!), or milia – but it’s making me disinclined to put makeup on, and a bit camera-shy.)

FOTD: Berry Neutral (11/29/11)

Happy birthday to my little hubbin! (Belated, since this post will go up *after* the 29th, boo on me.) We had ourselves a bit of a date, and hung out with peeps, and “someone” got a little sauced (but, hey, what are birthdays for? I guess). I thought I’d put in some effort to look cute, and my grrl Wendy suggested neutrals with a red lip – and then I busted out a berry-ish lip because I couldn’t pick a red I liked enough. Wanh wanh wanh. (But seriously, I tried on like five, and didn’t like any of them, and was like, well, fuck this.)

FOTD: Twin Star Capricorn (11/25/11)

This is what I wore to go to the casino (Resort World). I didn’t win anything, and the drinks weren’t free, but I played some fun games, and dammit, my makeup was sparkly and pink, so it was a good time in my book. (And my drinks were daiquiris, so, yay! And actually, I did “win,” I guess, since I had $20 in my pocket when we left. The way I look at it, you decide how much money you’re willing to spend playing slots before you go in; you spend that much and no more. Any money you have when you leave, you’ve “won,” even if the net amount is less than what you started with, since you were expecting to lose all that money anyway. I mean, it’s fucking slots. You’re going to lose money. But that’s okay, because I pick the cute ones that are cheap, and then I’m just paying to play a cute video game that amuses me for a couple hours. And if I have money when I’m done, bonus! I win! And since I expect to lose all the money I allow myself to put into the slot machines, I don’t really see it as “losing.” I like my system.) I’ve still got my heart set on a week-long debaucherous casino trip, replete with Hello Kitty accessories out the wazoo and crazy ass makeup and pjs as daywear – just need to decide on *when*, and whether I’d rather go to Atlantic City, or Vegas. Decisions, decisions. (And saving money up, yeesh.)

FOTD: No glasses for Kate (11/15/11)

I don’t even know where I get these “look titles.” Just pull them out of my ass, I guess. Sometimes I consider giving up and not doing them anymore, but…really, I just want to see how low I can go. Like, what’s the worst title of all time that I can come up. Which means I have to keep titling them, right, if at some point in the future (when, presumably, I’ve stopped blogging about FOTDs), I can look back and go, “OH YEAH, THAT ONE! It was the WORST! What an awful fucking name.” Anyway. This one, is from wearing a Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick, and trying on the Warby Parker glasses. I didn’t even bother wearing any of them for a full day – I hated ALL of them, and so did Greg. Blecch. No bueno.
