I find it a bit ironic that in starting this blog the theme was finding a way to leave my day job, and here I am still trying to figure out the same thing. I am closer, now being part time at said day job instead of full time, however, I believe the reason I am still there is fear. I am afraid of what lies beyond, I am afraid of swimming without my little floaties on and I’m afraid of the big F: failure.
However, at the same time, I feel that if I stay at this dead end, soul sucking job, I am still a failure, for not staying true to myself, my happiness and my desires and well being.
In short it would seem I am at an impasse. Either way I am afraid!! Afraid of doing what it will take to get what I want, or afraid that once I get it, I may not want it after all.
I do feel that my time has come to be brave, look fear in the eye and jump off the cliff into the deep waters below. After all, life is short, we only get to live it once. It’s now or never.

One of the iconic beauty looks of the 60s is the doe-eye look made popular by Twiggy. One of the best ways to recreate this fun retro look is with full long lashes, i.e. a really great mascara!
I had the opportunity, thanks to Inlfluenster, to try out Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara for free, and it was perfect for recreating the Twiggy Doe Eye!
The mascara tube is nice and fat, which makes it easy to hold onto and easy to locate in your makeup bag. The wand has a brush that’s shaped like an hourglass, the rounded shape makes it easy to apply mascara to your lower lashes and does a great job of catching the rogue outer lashes that sometimes get missed with ordinary brush applicators.
Below is my everyday look with Scandaleyes, just a couple quick coats on the and lower lashes. I think my favorite thing about Scandaleyes mascara is the brush, the unique shape has a lot of control and creates thick lashes without a lot of work.
And this next look is when I went all out Retro, applying it to top lashes and then using a fine eyeliner brush to apply the Scandaleyes mascara in “fake lash lines” under my lower lashes just like Twiggy!
All in all I had a lot of fun with this mascara and would highly recommend giving it a try! It was due to release November 2013 so you should find it in the beauty aisle of a store near you and start creating your own Retro-inspired looks!

In light of the recent Fujifilm announcement, I think it is time to uncover Film Photo Revolution.

Film Photo Revolution’s first order of business is a US Tour to promote film photography and build our collective through workshops, artshows, and meetups around the country. Bringing art to the community and creating new film users every step of the way. Join us.
