Nick made mention (when I bought the batman shirt) that comics are “so hot” right now.
Being nerdy has never been so popular.
Which brought on a conversation between myself and my little sister Celeste.
We find ourselves in a sad position.

We are neither cool nor nerdy (which is now cool)
We are dorky.
What’s the difference? You ask…
Nerds, as I see it, are some mixture of the following: super smart, wear classes, like comics & video games (I mean really like them not just wear the shirts), play games like Magic and understand them, are socially awkward, have massive non-mainstream music collections, and might speak elvish.
Dorks: bad dancers (actually Celeste is a FANTASTIC dancer but in a very unconventional way…I think that still counts),  like musicals, smile with a fair amount of gums showing, bad at sports but still don’t have the decency to sit it out (like a nerd would do), and accident prone.

In all likelihood dorks will never be cool, if they ever are, by sheer definition, cool itself would cease to be cool.
But maybe nerds thought the same thing just a few short years ago and look at them now!

    I love how the black liquid leggings look with your tan boots! I would probably never think to pair those together, but it’s awesome.

    Ok I was totally having Maskcara withdrawals the last two days b/c I haven’t had any email with your latest blog posts. So glad I came to your site! I absolutely love that you’re on board with the leather leggings! I scored a pair (faux if course b/c I can’t afford the real thing) for $15!!! Yes $15 from Journeys.com. Love them but haven’t braved wearing them just yet. I also have ways felt more on the dorky side but now I wear glasses so where do I fit in?! Lol. Happy hump day girl! ❤ you!

    I know absolutely nothing about makeup and lean towards un-girly. What makes me wait for your posts is
    1. You look for beauty in everything, instead of just trying to beautify stuff which don’t appear beautiful.
    2. You speak your mind.
    3. You accept people with all their blemishes and love them truly.
    You’re awesome 🙂 (dorky or not)

    Luckily “cool” is subjective so what I think is cool, someone else may think is dorky, but it doesn’t matter because it’s cool to me! Like my husband – he’s a dork AND I think he’s the coolest!! I totally value dorkiness. I was a dork in high school and thank goodness because being cool looked like no fun. 😉

    You use Brun for brows quite a bit and it’s a fantastic brow color, with neutral tones. As an eyebrow guru, I’ve tried everything. However, I have really light brows that I’ve been working for years to grow back in. I usually use a Stila eyebrow feather pen in medium or Anastasia brow powder duo in golden blonde (Not sure why it’s called golden, because the darker of the duo is a great muted shade). These products darken and define my brows fine, but I’m always on the hunt for the next best thing. Do you think Brun is universal or do you have a lighter shade to recommend? Thanks!

    Yay, you got the shirt, it looks great on you! I would never brave a superhero shirt because I feel that people would think I raided my sons closet, but you totally make it work. I too am a big dork LOL musical loving, gummy smile non dancer and all! The only thing I would add is the totally inappropriate burst for laughter which causes people to stare…at which point I’m usually laughing so hard I snort. lol

    I have an extremely personal question that you absolutely do not have to answer haha! I really love wearing skinny jeans and those leather leggings are absolutely to die for! My question is, being LDS as well, how do you hide the “lines” underneath if you know what I mean?! Haha..any suggestions or advice would be great!

    Love the look, your blog….everything! I live in Vegas and Salt Lake! Discovered you in this months Allure, and have attempted the Rosie and Angelina look already. You inspire me to try different looks, you’re a genius with hair and makeup and a good person. 🙂 love it.

    I try lining my tear lines and find it makes my eyes look smaller, and wondered why you never use a finishing powder after you do your makeup? I use one all the time, but now wonder if its aging me. It is. Good one by Makeup Forever, it is white and translucent, so not heavy. Cargo also makes great ones.

    I love your site, keep the posts coming girl, you’re amazing.
