mummies, martinis, and mascara

I’m alive! Things have been a little dark around here for the last few days, because we’ve been busy, busy this week. Thursday night, my friend, Perry, and I co-hosted a small Halloween party at the shop. Perry’s a super-talented makeup artist, and she did a few presentations on FX makeup for the holiday weekend.

Of course, we all hit up Pinterest to find some spooky recipes…





Can you really beat a seven layer dip? I worked late at the shop last night processing new inventory, and plowed through half of the leftovers. By myself. Like a crazed woman on a binge. Then I ate more of it for breakfast when I came in this morning to run deliveries. {Lauren, can you make this for me every day?!}




Later, Perry got to work giving her sister, Lauren, a chemical burn! Never have I ever seen a group of dudes so interested in a makeup lesson ;-)





Look who came! It’s Anne of WobiSobi and her beautiful daughter, Hannah. I think great style is encoded in these ladies’ DNA. Anne is probably taking Instagrams or tweeting about the party ;-) Meghan from m.marie was there, too, rocking some cheetah print from Perry.
