Rambling and NARS collection

Hello everyone.  I hope everyone had a good weekend, and for my USA crowd a great Memorial Day Weekend.  As most of you know my hubby is in the military so I think that it kinda hits home for me.  It takes a lot of courage and dedication to do what my husband does and I love him for it.  Anyway… I am already starting to get off subject. It is just one of those nights where my thoughts are wondering wildly out of control…
So, back to my weekend.  I saw a bunch of movies!  We took my son to see the latest Pirates of the Carribean on Saturday, Sunday just me and the hubby watched Hangover 2 and Monday we watched Thor.  What great movies.  All of them.  (Especially Hangover 2!!!)  Does anyone else get into a movie-watching mood?  Sometimes I get in the mood to do nothing except watch movies all day!  For some odd reason it is soooo satisfying.  Maybe I am the only weirdo that thinks that way but oh well…  
This post really does have beauty meaning.  I just felt like rambling on a little bit first.  I was looking through my makeup collection and realized that I have quite a bit of NARS stuff.  I have actually swapped away quite a few things from NARS but these are the ones that I really love.  I will be expanding on my collection when I decide that my no-buy is over, but I don’t know when I am going to end it.  I feel like I need to take a spending break.  All I am alowing myself to do for the next little while is swap with people.  
On to the collection photos…

This is a look I did using Tzarine duo.  I was pressed for time this morning and I had a nice blue shirt on so I thought this duo complimented it nicely.  I work in an office environment and deal with the public so I can’t be over-the-top at work.  I have to keep it muted and polished.  There are many ways to wear this duo but simple is always better for me.  This isn’t the best picture, but I was short on time so I snapped a couple and ran out the door.  This is the only one that made it through the chopping block!  :)
These are the shoes I wore on the date-night with my husband.  I love these shoes.  They are by Nine West and they are sexy, yet sophisticated.  Love love love them!  Please excuse the mess that is my makeup area.  There is always a small mess in that area.  
This is what they look like on.  Sorry for the poor quality pictures but they are the best I could do before I flew out the door.

I hope you enjoyed this post and didn’t find it boring and unrelated to the usual content of my blog.  Sometimes it is simply better to ramble on and get your thoughts out than keep them in and they become lost forever! 
Have a great day!

    I am glad you liked the post! You should definitely start out with a blush from NARS! I recommend NARS Torrid! It is gorgeous!

    Definitely don’t mind the rambling in blog posts! I really want all your NARS products! I’ve recently been getting into their stuff a lot…I adore the eyeshadows and blushers in particular. They’re insanely expensive on my side of the world though ): I’m slowly building my collection!

    My collection has been built over the course of 2 years. And like I said, I have swapped a lot away. I have had a few foundations that I didn’t care for and some blushes. I also had some of the full size singles that were also in my palettes so I swapped those away. I am always looking to try the rest. I will venture into more colorful e/s eventually! :)

    I love looking at pictures of people’s makeup collections. I find it quite interesting, actually! I also like NARS, but even if I didn’t, I would still enjoy looking at what you had.

    And, um, you really think that’s a “mess” in your makeup area?! No, don’t think so! LOL!

    Looking forward to your next post. By the way, I am still amazed that Urban Decay was your first tutorial!!!

    Hugs!

    Thank you everyone!

    Moxie: I am working on a lighting situation right now so that I can do more tutorials. I can’t recreate that lighting and I actually want it to be a little better then that.

    NC40: Yes, that is Laguna… I would have to say that is my favorite…. as well as Torrid…

    Nat: the l/s is Napoli.

    Maryam: I love your blog! Gorgeous!

    Amanda: Yes it rotates. I got it from QVC.
