So, the other day, Scott and I were chatting. I say chatting, I was mostly pestering him at work and sending him dancing ponies to distract him. Usually I'd say we had a pretty strong relationship. That was until this happened...
Way back in early November, Scott and I embarked on a trip across continents to the tropical paradise that is Vietnam. We started out in Paris, before making the achingly long journey across sunny skies to the largest of the Vietnamese cities, Ho Chi Minh City.
Today is a special Life Through A Lens post because not only does it mark the end of yet another great month, it also marks the end of my very first year of blogging. I featured a special, Blogging Highlights post last week to mark the occasion, so if you missed it, head on over and take a wander down memory lane with me. I would like to thank everyone again for being so thoroughly wonderful and supportive, without you guys reading, I'd just be another crazy lady talking to herself... (Not that there's any problem with that mind.) I appreciate each and every one of you and here's to another fabulous year on Effortlessly Excessive! Anyway, let's hop to it shall we?
I'm featuring some inspiration from an unlikely source today. Over a year ago, Scott and I watched a film called After Earth, starring Will Smith. It has received mixed reviews, (I actually didn't think it was too bad) however the piece of it that stuck in my mind is the above quote.
I added to my Inglot collection again, filling up the second of my small Freedom System palettes. I have been toying with the idea of re-housing my shadows in the larger 10 or 20 pan palettes and saving these small 3 pans for travelling. (Plus having all of that space is an excuse to buy more eye shadow, right?) Anyhow, shall we have a look at what I went for?
