Flying Trapeeeeeze!

I bought my brother and I a beginner flying trapeze lesson over at Emerald City Trapeze.  It was so FUN!  I couldn't believe what they taught us on the first lesson!


Not too shabby, and it was a wonderful gift for Christmas.  My family had a great time too!

Color trends for Spring/Summer 2013

Here in Seattle, the dreariest month is Jan.  No more looking forward to Thanksgiving, and the red and green spectacle that occurs between then and Dec. 25th....nope.  January to Washingtonians means 6 more months of grey rainy blaahhhhhhh.

But....there is a light...THANK HEAVEN FOR THE INTERNET, where we can read about the trending bright colors for Spring and Summer.  Ahhhhh....I can feel the sun blinding me now.

I cannot wait to decorate my face with these colors, cuz you can bet I'm going to be bugging Dr. Jen's House of Beauty to make me all of these in eye shadows and lipsticks and glosses!



Check out what the infamous Finnish make-up artist Jangsara can do!  Get to adding to your color palette so you can achieve these looks!  (OMG, Alien?  Awesome!)

FINALLY! Drag Race Season 5...the cat is out of the bag!

My gal pal Jinkx Monsoon is on the upcoming Season of Ru Paul's Drag Race.

WEEEEEEHOOOOOOOO!

This is going to be a wild ride!  Not only have Jinkx and I worked on projects and shows together over the years, but we've become friends to boot!

She's pure delight and I'm so thrilled that the world will get to witness her talent.

Monday's Delightful Obsession

NYC's Daughters of Devotion.
Comprised of former Seattle natives; Kindra and Laura Devotion have taken NYC by storm...and I'm not even trying to make a Sandy pun.

Their original looks and outrageously decadent make-up have made them the favorites of the NYC scene.  They've been everywhere...Page 6 *tramping* alongside Carmen Elecktra, drinking champagne with Mike Ruiz, gallivanting with the Blonds.

If jealousy is a stinky perfume, then I reek!



This gal is so happy to see her friends doing so well in the Big Apple.  Take a big 'ol beautiful bite Ladies!
