Time must not exist where space buns are concerned, because another spring, another summer has come and nearly gone. I find myself dreaming of autumn (although, who am I kidding, I do that before summer has a chance to set in). Time passing will never fail to stun me, to sadden me, to make me more nostalgic than anyone should have to be within a single moment. And right now is no exception. There's nowhere I'm really going with this. I'm just awed. Shrinking in awe mingled with apprehension before a ruthless deity with power to move anything on this planet that can be moved, and everything that cannot. I try my best to live in the moment, but inevitably wake up to a thousand moments past.

Lydia Deetz goes to college. I only wish I could see her. She's past the days of lurking in attics, fraternizing with spirits, but her style hasn't changed. She takes well to the mathematical sublime, such as found in curves that cut a good staircase...has no problem finding the best ones on campus. There she hovers on her breaks, on steps that are not just steps to her, but a limbo of sorts: the space between blocks of time, levels of land. Lydia drinks her coffee black and doodles exquisite corpses over her notebooks. University opened her mind to her own dynamic nature, so she dyes her hair white as a reminder to embrace light. I only wish I could see her.

Velvetine Dream

Ashy hair, smokey features...this is the inspiration for the look I created using Lime Crime's Venus Grunge palette and Cashmere liquid matte lipstick from the Velveteen collection that Lime Crime was kind enough to gift me. Not surprisingly, another attempt to achieve translucency. There's something irresistible about emulating the timeless look of a goddess, where muted hues sculpt the structure of the face, while a sheen accentuates its texture. Rather than emphasize distinct features, a monochromatic palette brings eyes, brows, and lips together as parts of a whole. The result is a subdued look that commands attention in the most subtle way: a play between shadow and glow.
