Box of Shadows III

A couple of weeks ago I was surfing the web when I found this awesome site  and I was in love. I love anything that glitters,shines  and or is sparkly. I guess Urban Decay started out with Gothic Makeup I don't know but what I do know is that they have some of the most gorgeous eye shadow yours truly has ever seen.
They have a series called Box of shadows that comes out every so often and that is what got my attention was the Alice in Wonderland set that was unfortunately sold out but they did have the NYC series that was just as awesome.
How can you not feel glamorous when you have the color money on your eyes? Or rock star….not to sure about snatch or perversion though.
The set comes with an eye shadow primer which is something that I never go without  and two eye pencils that are like velvet.
16 eye shadows: Exclusive shades: Loaded (sparkly emerald green), Kush (green metallic with silver glitter), Rockstar (deep red-purple with metallic base), Money (metallic light green), Bordello (pale pinky-purple with shift), Radium (bright blue), Suspect (sheer sparkly beige) Existing shades: Perversion, Uzi, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Last Call, Maui Wowie, Smog, Snatch, Haight, Psychedelic Sister. 24/7 Eye Pencils: Ransom & Zero, Eyeshadow Primer Potion (travel size).

And another totally useless feature but a really cool one is the box is like a pop-up book when you open it with lights and a mirror.

Valentine’s Day Wreath

rosenkranz
So as I posted before I have been swamped with work for school. I am still deciding whether not I should participate in the Fashion Show in May because of all the B.S that is going on. It is real pain when you do your best and it gets torn to shreds. I will think about it and let you know.
On to other news….I have been eyeing these wreaths for quite some time on several blogs  and I finally decided to make on of my own. They are really easy to make but they do take time because you have to have tons of roses for it to look nice. This wreath is pretty small but it still took about 100 roses. I used a dark red felt for it that was expensive at least I thought it was. It cost about 15 Euros for a role and I used almost all of it.
I used a CD for the circle and they are perfect in size so that is what I recommend.
I think I will make another one in Cream for everyday because I love it so much.
