Here's a picture of my dog. She wouldn't look at me.

Every neighborhood in Anchorage, AK has their own moose.  Sometimes there are two or more.  They're everywhere.  I was fortunate once to witness a moose giving birth in my back yard and saw the fledgling moosie take it's first steps.  It was awesome and I was safely in my house where you need to be, especially when they have their babies around.

And then there was the time that my husband was on his way to work and saw two bull moose lock horns fighting in the middle of the street.  Pretty cool.

While we see them nearly every day and they're familiar with us and vehicles, seasoned Alaskans know that you can't go pet them and it's against the law to try and hand feed them.  People do it but every couple of years, someone will get stomped to death by a moose.  They're very unpredictable.  They are large animals, bigger than horses, and can turn on you very quickly.  Best just to watch from the safety of a car or home.

And there you have your moose education for the day!

Watch Me Tell The Time

Rose gold is a color that just about everyone loves.  It is fresh and gives a cool break from the standard golds and silvers.  This watch was less than $20 at Patty's Closet in Anchorage, Alaska.

If you haven't been yet, it's at the corner of the Old Seward and 36th.

Showing off my Tweezerman brows to have dinner with friends!

Using my Tweezerman Pro kit, I fixed my brows all nice and pretty, and unfortunately with my cell phone in lighting which isn't the best, you can't see my awesome sparkly pink eyeshadow, (Maybelline quad).  I used a new blush from the Kardasian Beauty Pumped Up collection, along with a lipgloss.  My face was LA Girl Cosmetics Pro concealer and Gorgeous Cosmetics foundation.  I had gotten inspiration for an easy, casual and comfortable look from my motivational t-shirt from Old Navy.  Easy Peasy.

Today is a Jeans and Converse All Star kind of day

I took this picture with my phone using an Instagram filter.  The colors here are muted by the filter so these Converse All Star sneakers are the very coolest bright lime, light blue and royal blue.  I LOVE this lime color that has been out for a few years.  There's no accounting for it, I just adore it, so when I saw these shoes...I knew they would go with everything that my blue and pink Converse don't.

I wore Converse as a kid because I was really into basketball and baseball.  My preference was black high tops.  They didn't get as dirty as white and living in Alaska, they throw a lot of dirt on the roads in the winter and it makes a nasty gray/brown mess for several months as the snow melts.....from such grew my love of color...a break in the 7 months of monotone greys and browns.

Anyway, I'm sure I was the only little girl in school who wore Converse high tops, but much to my glee, they are now hip and popular....AND SO ARE MY FEET!!!

New Kardashian Beauty Pumped Up Collection - First View

Somewhere deep inside me, when I saw this display at Ulta, I heard a little voice inside tell me wait till you go home and get these on a BOGO1/2 at Fred Meyer and you can have them allllllllllllll.......

However, I was swayed by the loud voice I heard that said "OH MY GOSH, CAN I SEE THAT DISPLAY?!!?????  THOSE ARE GORGEOUS!!!"  The lady at the cash register plopped down the brand new Kardashian Beauty Pumped Up display in front of me.  I heard a flurry of iphone pictures being taken and I was aglow in the beauty of the collection.  Was I surprised to find out it was my loud voice and iphone?  Nah.

So I had to buy some.  Then I had to go back and buy more.  I told my husband, "but it's my JOB".  Here is your first look and I'll get my multitude of pictures up soon.  I did exercise restraint, tho.....I put back one of the four blushes I wanted and a gloss.  Yes!  Victory for him...MORE Victory for me.

I have been impressed with everything I've tried from Kardashian Beauty.  No Joke.  Everything I've used, eyeshadows, lip products, bronzer, blush, highlighters...everything has been finely milled, perfect in application, nicely pigmented and wears all day.  Today I wore the blush in the front left side and the gloss on the back right.

I want to say so much more, but I'll save it for the full pictures and review.  Let me tell you this as I wait for them to load to my computer, if you see this display, just don't hesitate.  Get what you want.  As you can see, the display only has two of each, so I'm saying, (in my best Rocky voice), "Go For It.  I really don't think you could possibly regret these purchases.

We're following R2-D2. (Squint plus Imagination)

My friend said it could be Princess Leia.  Another friend said Transformers.  *snicker*

I've taken more picture of various colors from the China Glaze City Flourish nail polish collection, which I purchased at Ulta.  The purples really speak to me right now.

Styled My Converse Differently Today

I thought it might be cute to tie my Converse All-Star sneakers together with the tank top I was wearing by adding matching ankle socks.  These probably aren't the best pictures.  Everything came out a little dark today.  I was wearing denim capris, a hot pink tank top with a bright blue sweater, hot pink ankle socks and my Converse All Stars in a dusty blurple with pink.

I'd call this really casual but oh so comfortable.  I've always loved Converse.   I used to wear black high tops when I was in grade school.  I'm sure everyone thought I was a wierdo then.  It's awesome when a trend comes around that you work when you were the greatest dork in school.

How do you style your Converse?
