Happy Friday Everyone! How was your week? Mine was busy! Went to see one of my favorite bands (Gin Blossoms) on Tuesday and it was EPIC, then I had a networking event at Perle in Market Square, and now I get to focus on the GA/GI fashion show for the rest of the week and into the weekend (more of that to come). Here's a couple little things to spark your interest. Have a safe and Happy Weekend!! XoXo
This weather has made my skin look literally gray (ok and maybe my lack of sleep and water isn't helping either). I wanted to find a tutorial on how to wake up your look without using too much makeup and staying fairly natural looking. Lisa Eldridge is slowly becoming one of favorite makeup artists to watch on YouTube; everything she does looks so fresh and not overdone. Her tutorials are easy to follow and she explains things very well (plus her accent is just adorable). Here, she teaches us how to wake up our faces for a fresh and natural look. Check out this tutorial on how to look fresh faced and alive.
I confess, I bawled when I watched this. This video is just beautiful, the little girl experiences rain for the first time and her reaction is the epitome of pure joy. Very heart warming, grab the tissues.
Another life goal of mine is to one day go to France. I've heard from many sources the French don't go out of their way to cater to non French speaking people, especially American tourists. Therefore, I've been trying to find easy ways to learn French that don't take away from my schedule. Duolingo (which was created in Pittsburgh!!) is a FREE, very easy, very flexible, interactive way of learning any language. It has a hands on approach to it and grades you just like back in high school. It's amazing how quickly and easily I've been picking it up. Pretty soon I'll be une femme qui parle français in no time! Download Duolingo for free here.
