Smokey Eyes FOTD and Crazy Days

Woooooooooooooow, am I sick of being sick! Coughing, hacking, wheezing, and now my jaw is starting to hurt from all the coughing force too. :[

On top of that, I've been working on some heavy-hitting projects at work that are making me stay overtime every day this week. I didn't get to leave the office until around 7:30 pm tonight, then I had the hour drive home so I couldn't even eat dinner until late. I've been feeling very underslept and overworked lately which is tough. I'll probably make this entry short to compensate, so I'm very sorry about it (and also for my whining). If my postings in the next week are a little more sparse than usual then you now know the reason. I've tried to work on editing a couple vids to hold you guys over but for now I just have some older pics that somehow didn't get pushed to the priority of postings in the last couple of months.

Feel free to notice hilarious things such as:
1. short bangs. basically, I have magic hair that grows backwards and also these pics are 3 months old. :P
2. leggings. it hasn't been warm enough to wear leggings here since 3 months ago, unless they are under my jeans.
3. smoky eyes, AGAIN and so soon! i'm sick, throw me a bone kthnx.
4. pics taken pre-dslr. sorry for the crappier quality.


I can't remember every product I used, but I'm pretty sure it was my very favorite Stila Barbie All Doll'd Up Palette, using the purple, navy blue, and the glowy beige (bottom left in example) as highlight.


Close-up.


In better lighting so you can see the purple better. Upper lid had purple all over, then the navy lightly as contour. Bottom lash line was just purple itself. I think lips were Dior Creme de Gloss in Creamy Gold. Oh, and DSK moonlight heart necklace. :D


And here is my outfit. Cropped leopard hoodie - Express via TJ Maxx, sweater dress - Abercrombie kids, waffle-knit long sleeve - Forever 21,  flutter miniskirt - Abercrombie kids, leggings - Target, metallic slouch boots - JC Penny


I'm such a layers kinda gal but what can I say? I'm always cold! I'd normally give more lessons about proportions, but suffice it to say that my legs are elongated here because of the high waist.

Okay, gotta go cuddle up with some Sleepytime Tea and get to bed for real but before I leave I did want to put in a warning that my domain will be transferring to a new host tomorrow so if the site goes in and out, that's why. I really hope this will solve all of the weird problems people have been having with not being able to see the blog. ^.^

If you feel moved, please leave a comment with your best trick for helping a deep cough that won't seem to go away. ;)

  3. Try Thera Flu, or coining, which is what I do when any of my family members is sick. I'm Vietnamese, by the way. Here's the link to how to "coin": http://healthpsych.psy.vanderbilt.edu/CAOGIO.htm. You just need some therapeutic massage oil or balm--usually meant for muscle pain or arthritis--and have your husband apply it onto your back with clean hands. And then coin your back until it's striped red. It's an Asian method that has never failed our family when it comes to sickness! I hope you feel better. Drink vitamin C (orange juice) and eat fruits high in antioxidants, and eat chicken soup or any nutritious vegetable soup that's easy for your digestive system. And get plenty of rest. You're probably sick because of lack of sleep and food. Take care.

  7. No tips for getting rid of coughs...does gurgling salt water work for you? Is that for sore throats? Not sure. >___<

    Dress warm! Your outfit in the pictures look really cute. You're always so awesome at elongating your legs and making yourself look so tall. :)

    Mm, like I keep saying (but probably doesn't work), get well soon. >__< & find some time to sleep more if possible...

  14. Gosh, jenny. Next time when you're sick just rest. We can wait for the posts later when you're well. A few lines on what's going on is fine. I was never into reading blogs but yours is the exception. I would hate for you feeling obligated to keep us posted, getting sick, and sicker, and eventually tired of this whole thing. Take care of yourself, you're amazing!

  16. For the Stila Barbie All Doll'd Up Palette.. I think you meant bottom right and not bottom left. I'm anal... sorry.

    As for a cure for a cough.. I've heard from a girl in one of my classes that you're suppose to get bean sprouts and cook them in water... then drain the water and drink it. I'm pretty sure it won't taste great, but she says it works every time. Well, I wish you a speedy recovery! :D

  18. I'm so sorry! I hate feeling sick! Please stay rested and don't over do yourself :P

  19. Awww I hope you feel better Jen!! I would try Theraflu or Dayquil. Dayquil usually stops my horrid coughs for awhile. Honey lemon tea might soothe it a bit, or ginger tea. Take care *hugs*
