LEGOs!

One of my coworkers (the one who actually got me this job originally) has this addiction to LEGO minifigures. Honestly I still think my pony army has his beat in not only size but stature, but I’ve been slowly buying into the LEGO craze myself (and by slowly, I mean slowly for me, which means […]

Happiness

Happy girls are the prettiest.
Audrey Hepburn

All the make-up, surgery, and clothes in the history and future of the world cannot compensate for an ugly heart. Stay happy :D

I got distracted by things… travel, weather, games, pizza… BACK TO WORK!

The Dress

I’ve been slowly revolutionizing my self image over the past decade or so. My most recent culmination of efforts was this weekend whilst shopping at Macy’s in Plano, TX. During middle school and part of high school I went through a very anti-girl phase; I never wore skirts or dresses (and absolutely nothing with frills!). […]

Changeling Lux

Changeling Lux

Here’s another skin concept I threw together: Changeling Lux. I figure this could easily tie into a sort of “Invasion of Demacia” event or story and there could be other changeling skins as well :) My second piece for this round of remembering-how-to-art already feels like a major improvement over the first, and I look forward […]

So I’ve fallen back into another art trend. Got two pieces complete and a few more in the queue. WOOOO!

Pep Squad Lux

Pep Squad Lux!~

Ok… for those that don’t know me well, I have a fascination for Chibis. A fascination that causes me to draw characters from just about everything I invest any time in. Currently, that’s League of Legends. Here’s my take on a concept a friend of mine has for the character Lux, Lady of Luminescence.

Tantrums

Tantrums are a noble and time-tested strategy.
Melody/Brandon Sanderson

In case any of you haven’t heard of Brandon Sanderson, a friend of mine turned me on to The Rithmatist this past week. Shortly after I not only acquired a Kindle version of the novel, but finished reading it the same day. I highly recommend this book if you have any form of imagination or […]

Visual Studio 2012

As a programmer, I’m always eager to get my hands on good development tools. Visual Studio has been a staple since the beginning, and I’ve enjoyed watching it grow over the years. I have to say, though, that I’ve never been this happy with a new version of VS as I am with 2012. The […]

Reflection

Beauty is self-confidence applied directly to the face.

Some of my friends and I have been doing little weekly meetings as a part of a health and wellness revolution in our lives. On of my friends, Kelly, gave us a challenge our first week that has stuck with me more than most: Every time you look at yourself in the mirror and think […]

Mysteries of Mascara

So mascara and I have generally been at odds with each other my life thus far. From the itching and burning sensation to seeing high school girls with gobs of black around their eyes, I just assumed myself better off with out it. However, when I started getting into make-up again, my cousin dropped a […]

League of Legends Item Sets

I was introduced to the crack that is League of Legends about a month and a half ago by some of my close gamer friends. It has taken a shameful amount of my time and money in the days since. However, I really enjoy playing it, and there’s so many other worse things I could […]

Bland/Moore Wedding

Here’s some photographs that I took at the Bland/Moore Wedding in December 2012 :) This was my first official job as photographer. I also made the bouquets!

Intro to Makeup Brushes

I’m (embarrassingly) pretty new to the make-up scene, now in my 20’s in a solid professional career. I never really messed with it much growing up because it seemed so superfluous to my goals. In more recent years I’ve begun to appreciate just what make-up is supposed to do—enhance a woman’s natural beauty. Much of […]

Computers & Programmers

A computer is a stupid machine with the ability to do incredibly smart things, while computer programmers are smart people with the ability to do incredibly stupid things. They are, in short, a perfect match.
Bill Bryson

I use this quote as the signature of my personal emails. I love the symmetry of it :)

Birthday Invitations Lady Bug Style

My cousin’s little girl is turning 1 this year (YAY ZOE!!!!), and my cousin asked if I could put together a birthday invite for her. Of course I said yes (doing things I love for people I love). Here’s the running version thus far. The white circles will eventually be replaced with photos of the […]
