vanity project

people always ask me, "toe, how do you stay so gosh darn glamorous?!"

no, they actually don't, but my recent hobby is a guilty pleasure...i'm sort of obsessed with nail polish & makeup blogs. i don't know any of these people personally yet they are such a big chunk of my free time...when i should be doing laundry or cooking or something. logging onto girly girl sites to check out makeup is the new calling up your bff to gossip. it's frivolous like that--won't change the world, yet so damn delicious.

chloe's nails
this woman is hardcore. i love her attention to detail and her dedication. if i don't get my nails right the first time, i take all my polish off & just forget about it. her nails are magnificent works of art, seemingly at all times!

makeup and beauty blog
this makeup diva always has beautiful pix and a great sense of humor. karen's blog is so bright it makes me happy. i think maybe her cat writes the majority of the articles, tho. =^. .^=

if you need to know who's makeup collection is coming out when, this is where you go. temptalia's site is the comprehensive, pic-laden, review-filled site with all the info you need to keep you from making any frivolous, unnecessary purchases when you log onto sephora.com

makeup alley
reviews by your peers. i find this site invaluable when i'm waffling whether to buy some heretofore untried drugstore cosmetics. it has saved me from wasting my money on foundations that will only make my pores look larger. shew!

scrangie's blog
more nail porn. swooooonnn....

indie movies online

bleary eyed from watching indie flicks online...
"The Yanomamö tribe is a fierce, ancient people, living in the most inaccessible depths of the Venezualan rainforest. When documentary maker Rob Smits dared to undertake the journey into their world, he got far more than he bargained for."

leisurely stroll thru detroit ruins

i enjoy this crap. we take so much artistry for granted. xo

april is poetry month

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

lazy sunday link love

i've been busy with my script & traveling, so i haven't made time to blog lately, but this was a perfectly gorgeous sunday morning for digging around online. i had my green tea & little eee machine & a delicious chunk of quiet time. here are treasures in case you find yourself with a lazy sunday morning. savor!

advanced style
sublime style inspiration. reminds me of when richard pryor said, "you don't get to be old (and stylish--xo) bein' no fool."

i found that website here: nowness

spoonful zine
a little dollop of happiness, which can be delivered right to your door.

artist marketplace
if you're feeling creative & tired of using just coffeeshop napkins to doodle, contact moleskine to be one of their cover artists.

chinese movie blog
looks to be defunct since 2009, but good diggings thru here if you're like me: a chinese movie fan who misses a lot of chinese movies.

ps i made this
some entries are a little...odd, but this chunky pearl necklace just seemed so why-didn't-i-think-of-this?!!

the selby
celebrating stylish surroundings the same way the sartorialist celebrates stylish clothes. and i love the watercolor logo.

well, that's a wrap. i wish you quiet sunday chunks of exploring all to yourself. xo
