Hello + Happy Sunday! We have reached  wk. 006 and project 2015 continues.  Do you remember the days of VHS tapes? When you wanted to see a certain part in a movie the only options were to rewind or fast-forward.  This week I’m featuring the app Glitche.  This is a very unique app that allow photos to transform into digital masterpieces.  I focused on the filter VHS this week.  All the photos taken have been transformed into the “fast-forward” feature.  Here is a glimpse of my week…

A few years ago I discovered Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes. The Naked palettes have been so successful and have been on the beauty top sellers lists.  I have to agree, I am truly obsessed with the Naked palettes. There is not one color that I don’t like or will not use in all of their palettes. Currently, there are 3 Naked Palettes, a Naked basic and a Naked on the run palette. I’ll do a breakdown of all of them.  I love the texture and quality of Urban Decay’s shadows. All of them are buttery and fabulous with amazing rich pigment.  There are a variety of shades – some matte and some with shimmer sparkles.  Why Naked?  The palettes all come in a variety of gorgeous bronze-hues neutrals that look good on all skin complexions.  I love that you can be simple and neutral with these palettes or build it up and layer for more dramatic looks. My personal favorite is the Naked2 Palette. Once you purchase your first palette, you will know what I’m talking about. Here is a breakdown of all the Naked Palettes.
