Fyrinnae Gender Bent Meets the Urban Decay Nakeds

Today's look incorporates a color combo I just love, teal and brown.  Teal on its own can be a somewhat intimidating color for some, but when paired with brown it is grounded and becomes a bit more wearable.

Some interesting things going on for me today:

  • Just had my chimney swept and it was pretty cool to watch.  My new kitty Hannah adores sitting by the fire and even though the chimney sweep guy had this really loud machine going- she stayed next to him the whole time.  I guess she was making sure he didn't mess with her favorite spot.
  • I have the day off today and the house to myself for the first time in I can't even remember.  My 2 year old is at 'school' and mommy is home relaxing. 
  • I'm actually excited to clean the house today, and of course play with my makeup. :)
  • I used the manual setting on my camera, ISO at 200, 1/50 and lowered the flash compensation by a notch.  Generally I use ISO 100 and don't mess with the flash compensation.  I think the shadow colors look pretty true to life though my hair and skin color look a bit warmer than they should.
