This has to be one of the first posts in a very long time that I'm not wearing eye makeup! Granted there's a bit o' mascara, but that's nothing compared to my usual over the top cat eyed liner. I decided to don "bare eyes" after looking through all of the old photobooth pictures on my MacBook. In almost every picture I'm makeup free, and I really enjoy the look of it. Lately I've worn heavy eye makeup (heavy for me, at least) on a daily basis, and though I didn't realize it, I've actually become a bit uncomfortable with the way I look without said makeup. All of my old photographs inspired me to embrace the way my eyes look naturally, which is what I've been doing for the past few days! Even though makeup is a fairly significant part of my "look", I think it's healthy for me to go without any at all on occasion :) I also had my bangs chopped a bit by my friend David, can you tell? The length was getting to be a bit much, as I could hardly see out from behind my thick hair. It's also nice that you can now see my eyebrows; I put a lot of work into those bushy caterpillars.
Also, a huge thank you to my beautiful boyfriend for giving me his corduroy jacket. I was actually contemplating buying one of my own, so I'm very excited. I love that it's burgundy too, one of my favorite colors!
I've actually been meaning to get a pair of heeled desert boots for awhile, so I was stoked to see these up on the My Hot Shoes website! The color is just what I was looking for, and they're actually really comfortable.

Thankfully I have the entire day off from work and school, so I'll be spending it doing some much needed errands and seeing my friends. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
