Looking good is the Best Revenge

So, in three years I've only had one real complaint, other than recently when I told someone to please use a tester mascara wand next time she wants to try the mascara....

Mascara girl got PISSED and even though I had my Benefit sweet as pie voice on and said it was "not a big deal" at least three times, she was still furious for some reason and said "WELL IF IT'S NOT A BIG DEAL, THEN WHY IS IT A BIG DEAL???" "'s for your health and safety and the health and safety of others..." So that was weird and she asked me to write down my first and last name and I was like "CERTAINLY!" Still in my sweet as pie voice, but I digress...

So my actual complaint was from this one woman and her posse of other women. To make things short and sweet, I did a meh job on a woman who wanted things that our makeup really can't do. 

So the next day the woman in charge of the aforementioned posse came in, said lots of mean things about me, including but not limited to "she should not be allowed to touch a humans face," AND left a mean note just to sorta top it off. 

So! This woman made another appointment for another posse of women to get their makeup done and requested NOT ME, but of course I had to be there. So I went out of my way to look stunning and be sweet as pie sickeningly nice to her.

All in all it wasn't very eventful, I didn't get into any fistfights with clients, but looking good is definitely the best revenge!

Deathiversary !

So two years ago, I got into a pretty bad car accident in which I didn't die but probably should have. I wasn't injured AT ALL (aside from the bruises I had on my arm because the ambulance failed five times at attempting to give me an IV, and some cuts on my scalp from glass) and it was a really really strange thing to experience. So this year and last I have been referring to May 17th as the anniversary of my death. (My mom calls it my "second birthday" and sent me earrings, my mom is easily the best mom.)

Last year I made my twin drive me around and I got some more moths tattooed on me by Erik Jacobsen at Idle Hand. This year I drove myself to some random woods in Marin, and then my best friend Brian, who was the one who picked me up from the ER and had whiskey, took me to this beautifully Peruvian food restaurant. Delicious and magical.


And on Saturday I am going back to Jacobsen at Idle Hand and am getting a sunflower, which I was inspired to get for a number of reasons but top of the list being my favorite artist, Van Gogh, and his creepy and sad and wonderful sunflowers.

Also on the topic of beauty, I just ordered Poppy King's book Lessons of a Lipstick Queen and can't wait to read and report back !
