It's no secret that recently, I've been a 25-year old walking cliché, moping around in quarter life crisis-mode and generally making a fool of myself. I'm going to do my best to keep more of my personal life out of this particular blog; sometimes I forget that more than just my friends are keeping tabs on this. I have a difficult time feeling creative or apt to blog about fashion when I'm going through a rough time. I apologize, profusely. Back to the pictures!
I just got back from New York (the other day) and felt like lifting my spirits a little. What did I do? Well, I did my makeup and partook in a self-indulgent, extremely vain photo session. Did it work? A little. A bit (or a lot) of eye makeup and fake lashes can do wonders for the self esteem.
