Minor things

Hi guys! If you haven’t noticed, there are slight changes to my theme. I spent the last few days searching and debating whether or not I wanted to change my whole theme, but there just weren’t any that I liked and I don’t have the patience to create one. So, behold! Subtle changes and updates. I like this better than how it was before, this purple is way nicer and I am in LOVEEE with my new logo. :)

You may also have noticed that there is no longer a cBox. I decided to remove it because I feel more people comment on blog posts and stuff via the cBox. It’s not right to do that, that’s why there is a comment section on the post. If you need to contact me for any reason that’s not related to blog posts, you can use the contact form. It’s checked every day, multiple times a day. There are also links for affiliates and advertising which can be found on the sidebar.

Thank you so much for understanding. <3

Hey guys! Happy October. I really wish this month was longer. Seriously. I love Halloween and all things spooky. Anyway, you’re probably wondering what that has to do with the photo above, and in all honesty, nothing. I just love talking about October.

On October 1st, my closest friends and I went to Oakland and got piercings! The piercing I chose (above) is called a Smiley. I love it so much. I think it suits my face and it makes me feel more like me. It’s like finding myself all over again because I’m slowly becoming this person that I’ve always needed to be. Anyway, less about self becoming and more about how amazing this piercing is. :)

Since you’re going to ask, no, it didn’t hurt. In fact, I barely even felt it go in. It’s that little skin flap that attaches your top lip to your gum that was pierced. Which makes me think it didn’t hurt because it’s such a small layer of skin.

On another note, my big surprise is still in the making. I had a big setback about a week ago, but it’s all sorted out and stuff (even though I still kinda had to start over). ): So, get ready for that.

Can’t wait for Fall

Hey guys! First off, I’d like to thank you all for the wonderful Birthday wishes! <3 :) If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, ayevanity.com turned 3 back in June (which also unfortunately was the last time I posted anything). Also, I have news!

I can’t wait for Fall at the end of this month. I can feel it, the air, the smells, everything. It’s getting to be my favorite time of the year and I just can’t wait. Besides, I am so done with all this Summer bullshit. :P It’s way too hot in California and I can’t really deal well with it.

Anyway, I wanted to update you guys on my life and why I have been kinda MIA. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone anywhere, in fact, I’ve been working on something great, but I’ll get to that later. :) So, on August 1st, the day I officially started my new job as a full time photographer at a portrait studio I was in a car accident. I was literally on my way to work when I was rear ended, the car was totaled and I left with pretty bad injuries (that I am still seeing a doctor for 3 times a week). I am lucky that nothing is broken though.

My big news is still kinda a secret. I will tell you it has to do with something for you! :)

Goodness, gracious

On Tuesday of last week (the 5th of Feb) my friends came over to my house randomly while I was making some hairbows and surprised me with a miniature girls night out. After that night we decided that every Tuesday or every other Tuesday we’d all get together and do it again. This is my first blog post about it since it was a really funny and interesting night.

First I went over to Emilee‘s house (blue shirt) to wait for Erin (blonde) and Cassidy (pony tail). Then we when Erin got there we went over to Walmart to pick up Cassidy from work (she actually works at In n’ Out but it’s next to Walmart here.

After we went to Walmart and took a bunch of stupid pictures we went downtown to a very interesting store. Went to Cassidy’s house up on a hill where you can see the whole town. Here are a couple of the photos from that night. The only ones that aren’t like really stupid and degrading. :P We finished off the night by going to In n’ Out for a shake and fries. It was really great. I love them to death. :)

Also, everyone- Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your day is great! <3

Mini Lipstick Haul

I went to my work today (Target) on my day off. Yeah, how fun. Anyway, I thought “I don’t own enough lipsticks” so I went and picked a couple out. I’m really happy with what I got for the most part. I absolutely LOVE Covergirl’s Sultry.

You know, looking at this picture makes me think more of a grandma color. It’s actually a little more pink in real life and also more nude-ish. I guess I like it because it’s not too bright and it’s a wearable everyday – every look color.



(Sorry for the lack of focus on this one but the color is still accurate)


I really enjoy these and I’ll be wearing them a lot more. I just have to get lip liners since I literally have NONE. Absolutely zero of them. I don’t usually wear lipstick though, but I’m trying to get into it. I usually just wear clear lipgloss.

I wanted to get a burgundy color and a plum and a more neutral lip color. I’ll just have to go back since I get a 15% discount. <3
