All Proceeds go Towards Disaster Relief in Japan

Until the end of the week (Friday March 18, 2011), I am donating ALL of the proceeds of sale of my eye shadow palettes (Galactic Glam and Teach Me Tiger), to the Red Cross (www.redcross.org) relief efforts in Japan.
Here is your chance to not only support two local Seattle businesses, get yourself some new fancy healthy eye shadows in fun colors, but most importantly help the victims of the natural disaster last week.
A small but important way we can all help.

These cosmetics are made locally in Seattle, and are healthy, free from the toxins, additives, and preservatives found in other brands. The company Xerion Skin Science, has signed the Compact for Safe Cosmetics agreement, and only uses natural and healthy ingredients.

Healthy and Natural make-up that is bold and colorful, and ready for showbiz!

Bjork Swan vs. Black Swan




The Oscars occurred this past Sunday night. Up for many awards was the amazing film Black Swan. It got me reminiscing, ten years ago to the date, another Swan walked the red carpet, and left everyone speechless.
To honor the genius that is Bjork, I made my own version of the Marjan Pejoski dress. (A shorter and more cleave barring version, of course.)

This is the Annual Oscar's Party hosted by Philip Heier and 3 Dollar Bill Cinema. This year it was held at the largest screen theater in Seattle, the Cinerama. What fun it was!
