And WHY are you always doing it?”
I know..I’m ALWAYS doing that dance, uh? As an 80’s babies who grew up in the 90’s, this song was a huge hit in my suburban hood. Not that I was allowed to listen to rap music….I had friends though. And a mad cool babysitter who would bust this song and do the dance. I enjoyed it because it was only dance that didn’t require any feet movements because…..um, I can’t dance. Shoulder poppin’? I can do that!
And that, boys and girls is why I love the Bankhead Bounce ’til this day.
Here’s a video for reference….if you (like me) are allergic to rap music videos, be careful with this one..hehe, you were warned.
On to the look….every once in awhile, I feel like I need to treat myself. I mean, why not? I’m fairly responsible. I pay my bills on time, go to work on time (mostly) and don’t go around plotting ways to destroy the lives of others. So why not TREAT myself?
Check out Dior’s Chic Palette Eye
…Sephora’s photo is so much prettier than mine. I will say that this little palette is a bit pricey. $45?! Yeah…that’s a stretch. But it didn’t hurt my wallet too much as I haven’t purchased make-up in quite a while…except a mascaras and a few (hehe, dozen) polishes.
Here’s how Sephora describes the colors:
- Shimmering bronze
- Ivory sheen
- Brownish green sheen
- Light mauve gray sheen
- Plum sheen
- Shimmering grayish black
I would say that they are pretty accurate and extremely wearable. This is my first time dabbling in Dior’s shadows and I’m impressed. I love how the colors are sheer yet build-able. I’m learning to have an appreciation for colors that can go on lightly and instantly look “intense” with a little more application.
